Baby in Pink

Hello friends!! Happy Monday to you all! Last weekend I made few cards that I will be sharing this and next week. I love baby cards, I can make baby cards everyday, hehehe and I thought why not make a simple card. So this is what I made and the pictures don't make justice, I even made a little video to show you how shimmery the elephant is.


Here are the details:

    Hello friends!! It's Saturday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and you family or your quiet time. I am taking it easy and craft as much as I can, I am a bit congested again, seriously, I am tired of the cold or allergies or whatever it is.
    Anyway, today I have a "Love card" for you, a little bit of mixed media and cute styles together. Remember this card? I saved part of the image I didn't use, perfect for this card.

    This card was super easy to put together, here are the details:

    Time for Tea

    Hello everyone! How are you doing? I hope you are having a great day! I am finally getting better from the cold/cough/flu combo I got, I slept very well last night, first night in a very long time, 8 hours straight!!  
    I am still congested, but I can eat and do things, energy is back, so I am counting all those little things as a precious things. 

    Let's say I drank a lot of tea during my sick days, I made this card  before getting sick, but I think it is perfect during sick days, time for tea (with lemon and honey)

    I used this fun Spectrum Noir Sparkle set "Tea Time Treats", the images were stamped on Watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink and white embossing powder, then colored the images with Spectrum Aqua Markers, I used Bud Green Gold, Kingfisher, Rose Pink; Spice (for the background). I added Rose Pearl Shimmering Cardstock to the sides and stitches.

    The sentiment was stamped on a piece of vellum and added a bigger second layer undeneath, then added sttiches. As a final touch I added pearls.



    Don't forget Sara Davies and Jennifer Tryon will be on HSN March 8th! New products will be available! You can see them HERE and if you are on Facebook check out the daily post and prizes too!!



    Hope you like it!
    Have a fantastic day!

    Bloom



    Hello friends! Sorry, I have been quiet for a few days, I thought I had a bad cold and ended up having the flu, seriously, it was really BAD!! I am finally feeling better, still coughing and minor runny nose, but other than that I can walk and not getting tired and no more fever!
    Anyway, I want to share with you today a new set that will be debuting on HSN March 8th!! This set was designed by our Jennifer Tryon, she is an amazing artist, just in case you didn't know she is LIVE every Wednesday on the Crafter's Companion US Facebook page, with tutorials, ideas and everything live!

    Last night, she created a beautiful watercolor piece with her new set, it's called "Bloom" and the possibilities are endless, I invite you to visit the page and watch the video, you will love it!
    This graphic is from last night, but you can see the set. {wink, wink}

    And let me show you the card I made using the littlest stamp from this set, yes, I used only 1 little stamp to create the background.

    Here are the details:

    • Create a card base from Ultra Premium White cardstock.
    • Cut a panel from Watercolor Cardstock and stamp the image with JetBlack Ink. then color them and create the buds with Spectrum Aqua Markers: Gold, Spice, Blossom, Rose Pink, Crimson, Mos. Aquamarine was used for the background. Then add a little bit of Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle to the background.
    •  Cut a panel from Rose Pearl Shimmering cardstock. Stamp sentiment on a piece of velum and adhere it to the watercolor panel. 
    • Add stitches and adhere panel to card base.


    Can you see the shimmer action?

    Hello friends! Happy Monday to you all! Sharing another watercolored Love card, this time showcasing the pretty rose from "Hello Beautiful" set, I used Spectrum Aqua Markers to color the image and background, but first the image was stamped in Versamark Watermark ink and white embossing powder, then heat embossed.
    I used the same colors from this projec.
