April Top Ten Winners Blog Hop – Baby Theme

Hello Friends!!, today I am participating on the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop, thanks to your support and voting for my card!! Thanks a lot!! the theme on this hop is Baby! and it is so special for me as I am sharing with you a special announcement.. 

When I learned that April’s International Highlights theme was Babies, I got so excited and decided that if I won this month, this is where I would announce that we are expecting a little girl in September!! We are so blessed to know that our family is growing and that I will have the joy to experience both a little boy (My Oliver) and now a little girl!! I am soooo thrilled with the news..

This is so especial for me as I had always wanted a little girl, we got pregnant back in 2015 of a little girl, but sadly she was sick and we lost her at week 15, I have never felt so much pain in my heart.. Any way a year later we got blessed with the arrival of our little Oliver and he is truly the joy of our lives!! he is such a happy boy, so fun and full of joy, I couldn’t have asked for a better baby!! I am sure all moms think that way..  I love so much having a little boy, that this time around, I honestly didn’t have a preference on a boy or girl, I even thought that another boy would have been perfect for Oliver to have a forever playmate and friend.. But when I got the news it was a Girl, I was so excited, as we will have the experience of being parents of a boy and a girl!! I am sure Oliver will still have a little friend on her and they will play together all the time.. so we are all super happy with the news!

Of course I used wink of stella in her pijamas and umbrella as well as the stars, I love the shimmery look that it leaves where it is applied!, and the clouds were die cut from the myth and magic glimmer paper, I love the white glimmer paper on this pack, it just looks full of color.. 

The clouds are from the up & away thinlits

Facebook live Jan 11- Painted with love samples

Hello Friends!!! Here I am sharing the cards that we made during my last Facebook live!! I host a facebook live every Thursday at 7PM CST on my facebook page HERE, you can like or follow my page and also click to get notifications so you know when I go live!!! 

As you all know Sale-A-Bration is still on going, this is truly the best time of the year as we all get FREE products from Stampin UP!!!

So my first card uses one of the FREE stamp sets that you get when you purchase $50, it is Party Pandas!! I truly love these pandas and has been by far one of my favorite sets from Sale-A-Bration this year!! I cant get tired of using these cute guys!!

Even though I use the basic black Archival ink pad, I did add some shadowing on the little panda.. It is ok as I am not really blending or coloring on top of it, if you do some blending, it is always best to use the memento ink pad!

The second card is a super easy card, this is what I made using the FMS #319, which is a weekly sketch that is posted for everyone to get inspiration and create.. I am having so much fun using the sketches when I am designing, I feel like these truly help my creative juices.. 

The third card  is as well super easy to make.. I feel like using the sentiment from the ribbon of courage is perfect, as you can use it for valentine’s day, you can use it for friends and family or for encouragement!! don’t you think?

The final card is as well very easy to make!!! I paired the sunshine wishes thinlits, which is the set I use to die cut the word “Love”,  with the lovely inside and out stamp set for the sentiment!!, the hearts are both die cut with the lots to love box framelits, again this is perfect for any occasion, not just valentine’s day.. 

You can see the full video of the facebook live event!! and you can see more details on how to make all of these cards.. 

By the way these are the cards from the card kit that I will be sending at the end of January to everyone that places and online order using the hostess code of the month! for January, the hostess code is 9NJERZVY 

you can place an online order HERE

you can click on any of the images below, these will take you to my online store where you can purchase any of the products to recreate these cards!!

Freshly Made Sketches # 319 – Valentine cards

Hello Friends!! here is another card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (FMS), I have been enjoying lately using these sketches and challenges to get inspiration for the cards I create.. 

What I like about FMS is that their sketches are very clean and prompt you to make a quick and easy card, don’t you think? here is the sketch from this week.. 

I decided to use the painted with love suite and showcase the gorgeous designer series paper (DSP), all the sheets on this DSP pack has gold foil!! so I promise you, all your projects will look spectacular when using this DSP!! 

I added a little heart that I had die cut in gold glimmer paper, this heart is from the sure do love you bundle.. and the sentiment is from the petal palette stamp set!! 

This one is one of the four cards that I created during the last Facebook live event on Jan 11, you can see the full video here.. 

Also don’t forget to see the gallery for all the participants using this sketch HERE

If you don’t know about it, I hold a facebook live event every Thursday at 7pm CST on my facebook page HERE, you can like or follow my page and request notifications to know when I go live!!! 

Also new in 2018, Every month I will be sending a card kit to make Four cards to everyone who places an online order $30 or more using the hostess code of the month.. it is important to use the hostess code as this is the way I will know who will be getting the monthly kit..
