2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Hello friends!! I am glad I had the time to make a project for this time season Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! Last Saturday I went shopping and stopped at Hobby Lobby, I found a cute selection of Coffee related products! I wanted to buy everything, LOL.


My card is very simple and cute {wink, wink}, here are few details I would love to share with you.

  • First, stamp the coffee background image, this one is Cups 'n Mugs from Technique Junkies on a piece of white cardstock in red ink. I used my MISTI to restamp the image to get a perfect coverage. After that, leaving your stamp on your MISTI, stamp the image with Versamark Watermark ink and add clear embossing powder.
  • After that, sponge your piece with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the bottom in red ink. I used one of the sentiments from Gift of Christmas set (I covered part of sentiment with washi tape so I could stamp "Merry Christmas" only)
  • Die-cut the background piece with Rectangle Stitched dies and a Rectangle Scalloped Stitched in Green Metallic cardstock to add behind the image.
  • Embellish card with die-cut boughs. 
  • Add little white dots with a white pen on the kraft cardstock base.



Hope you like my project!
Have a fantastic day!

I started selecting Gold and Copper Metallic and Glitter Cardstock.
 Die-cut the ornament as well as the metallic and glitter cardstock. 
 Mount a layer of rectangle stitched metallic cardstock with a piece of glitter cardstock. Then, add Nativity Ornament with foam tape.

Now, I have a bonus project for you, I made a super cute ornament using just the Nativity Ornament die-cut piece.

Celebrate Your Unique Talent Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Welcome to a very special blog Hop, today we are "Celebrating Your Unique Talent", and the My Sweet Petunia Team decided that today is a great day to celebrate our amazing  Iliana!! Yes, the amazing woman who invented the MISTI (Most Amazing Stamping Tool Invented) the tool that changed the way we stamp, no more waste paper, no more bad stamping and the fastest way to mass produce cards!!
I am forever grateful, stamping has been a great way for me to relax, but wasting is not fun and makes us a bit upset, hehehe.
Thanks for believing in your dreams, for your perseverance, for the ups and downs, you are our stamp HERO!!

So, to celebrate this day and our amazing Iliana, I created this card, just for her and believe me, my MISTI played a great role in order to create this card. 

For this card I used all stamps from Concord & 9th, I bought the Blooms Fill-In Bundle last month and until now I just had the chance to use it, and I love it!! I used a whole bunch of inks, all from Memento (I really need to improve my collection).
I stamped part of the sentiment from "Lovely" set on a piece of vellum and JetBlack Stazon Ink, then I created the "Amazing" part of the sentiment using the "Perfectly Penned" set. Die-cut a little flower, added silver thread and pearls.


This close-up shows a little bit better the colors of the card.

And what about a giveaway!!! We will give away winner's choice of an original or mini MISTI, in order to be entered in the drawn, you need to leave a comment on every single blog participating in this hop.
You have until Monday November 27th at noon (Central time) to leave a comment. Winner will be chosen by random and announced on the My Sweet Petunia Blog on Tuesday the 28th. 

Here is the list of participants in this hop:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello friends!! Stopping by to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. It is always something to be thankful and grateful for. I will say I am thankful and grateful for my family, my church family, my closest friends, my Physical Therapy family (now). To the latter, goodness, I would have never thought in a million I will need their services, and here I am now, dealing with 3X a week of therapy, getting my legs stronger again and walking funny, still in pain and sometimes a bit depressed, BUT thankful to have so many people around me helping me and offering me a hand.

Let me share with a couple of cards I made using Crafter's Companion Autumn Collection, perfect for this season's cards.
I made 2 sets, 6 cards each set.

Where in the world is Giovana??

Hello my friends! How are you all doing? I hope you are doing really good! Well, I have been absent for a while, my November 1st post was scheduled in October, anyways, last October 31st, I was doing my regular stuff, working and everything and my calf muscle decided to tear and change my schedule {insert sad face}. Since that day I have not been able to walk, crutches are not fun and my life is quite boring and I get a little bit stressed and depressed.
I have never had any major problems with my legs, so it is amazing how much I need my legs. Anyway, I can't be in my craft room since I need to have my leg up, I have few things in my dining room and I will try to get crafty soon.
Me on Nov 3rd, my birthday. 
Anyways, let me show you a couple of projects I made for Crafter's Companion HSN show (last Tuesday show), sadly my projects didn't make it to the show, but just in case you got some of the amazing products, I hope these can give you some inspiration.

These cards are showcasing the new foil transfers!! They are so cute and very easy to use.



Submitting these projects to Word Art Wednesday Challenge: Anything goes.

Hope you like them!
Have a great day!

Technique Junkies November Release!!


Hello friends!! Welcome to another amazing Technique Junkies Release!! Every month I say the same, but this month's release is amazing!!

If you have arrived here from Vicki's blog, you are in the right place, if not please visit the Technique Junkies blog for the perfect line up. 

Project #1: This card uses 2 new stamps, the beautiful "Linen Dots" background and this sentiment that I personally love very much, it is called "Stay Humble".
Details: The background image was stamped on a piece of white cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink, add white embossing powder and heat set. After that I sponged the image with Tater Rose and Spun Sugar. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Jet Black Ink, then die-cut it with this die, also die-cut a piece of pink cardstock to add it behind the sentiment. Added few stitches on the right and left side to hold it better.
As a final touch, added silver thread, a paper flower and few pearls.



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Project #2: Coffee lovers, you are going to love this new stamp!! This new stamp is called "Cups 'n Mugs" and it is the perfect image for your coffee, tea, hot chocolate projects. The sentimes is called "Buy Coffee"
Details: For this project I stamped the background on a piece of watercolor paper, stamped the image using my MISTI for perfect impression in Versamark Watermark ink, added white embossing powder and then heat set. After that, I tapped Sepia Color Burst and misted it, added a little more and misted until I got it the way I wanted it. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Versamark Watermark and Gold Embossing powder and heat set it, then die-cut it using a circle die. I added stitches to the left side of the sentiment to be sure it stays in place. Finally, I added few sequins and a couple of  coffee wood veneers to embellish the card.
