Wedding card / Tarjeta para matrimonio.

This is a kind of simple wedding card but I love how the embossed hearts look on that shiny paper.
All the cuts are from Sweet hearts cartridge.
Hope you like it.

Here is the inside of the card

Baptism card / Tarjeta de bautizo

I was asked to make a card for a little boy in occasion of his Baptism. 
I used lot of dry embossing and inks on this card. Personally I like so much that cross although the embossing is not as crispy as I would like. That was the reason why I decided to ink it in order to make it pops. The little sheep represents the Church and the white dove is of course the Holly Spirit. I was not sure about the pearl-flowers-ribbon because I though it was to girly, but at the end I decided to keep them in the card as  it is for a baby boy and babies are always sweet and cute.
Anyway, as this is a card for a cute boy, I decided to post it for the contest at BBTB2 for this week: Boy Crazy!. 

Hope you like it. 
Do not forget that I love comments, so if you want to make me happy, leave me one! :o)


Me encargaron una tarjeta para niño con ocasión de su bautizo.
Usé mucho embosado en seco y tintas en esta tarjeta. Personalmente me encanta esa cruz embosada aunque no quedara tan resaltada como yo hubiese querido. Es por eso que decidí resaltarla con tintas. Las ovejitas representan la Iglesia y la paloma blanca por supuesto al Espíritu Santo. No estaba muy segura acerca de la cinta de flores perladas porque pensé que podía verse muy femenina, pero decidí dejarlas porque al final es una tarjeta para un bebé y los bebés siempre son dulces y tiernos.
Espero que les guste!
No olviden que me encanta leer comentarios, así que si quieren hacerme feliz, dejenme uno! :o)


Sympathy Card / Tarjeta para Pésame.

As always, sympathy cards are not easy to make. This is a very simple one but I like how it came up. 
The sentiment is computer generated.

Nunca es fácil hacer tarjetas de pésame. Esta es una tarjeta bastante simple pero me gusta como quedó. El texto es generado en computadora.

Baby, baby, baby... ohhh baby!

I've been asked to make some Baby Shower cards that are intended to be signed by so many people (you know, the kind of cards that every one at the office signs) so I decided to make Criss Cross cards.
This kind of cards are so much fun to make, they are simple but allow to insert as many pages as you need for signatures.

I used the baby from new arrival and stamped the faces with my PK stamps. The branch in the girly cards is from Home Decor cartridge. In the boyish card I used an stamp for the branch.
Hope you like them!

After 2 months off... I am back!

I am not really sure if someone is still following my blog because I know I have been MIA for so long...
I am actually feeling like this is my first post ever and I am so exited about it!

I am getting back to blog-land with a card that I made for this weeks challenge at Birthday Sundaes Challenge blog. As you can remember I was part of the Birthday Sundaes design team until 2 months ago, and I had to leave it abruptly for personal issues. So it makes me so happy to come back into the blog world with a birthday card for their challenge. This weeks challenge is to make a birthday card using Green-purple-black and white colors.
Here is my card.

I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for visiting me!

Birthday Sundaes Challenge #23 : Green, pink and white

Happy Sunday!
Today's challenge at Birthday Sundaes is a color challenge and Kristie couldn't choose a better combination of colors... Green, pink and white and the use of any neutral color is allowed, so I included brown to my card... (I think the world must be brown (lol) you can combine it with any other color and delicious things such as chocolate and coffee are brown)
Any way, when I think in green, pink and white (with a sprinkle of brown) I can't but think in the Kate's ABC Cricut cartridge, and I have to say that the heaviest part of this card was to decided which cut us for it. Once I have chosen my cut every thing came up easily, even when by accident I found an old small jar with those "brads" I have forgotten about. 

I inked the borders of the cut and embossed the base with my CB, The base and the frame are from Accent Essentials. The sentiment was computer generated and printed with my loyal Epson printer.
I hope you join us this week at the BIRTHDAY SUNDAES blog, specially because this week's challenge is sponsored by our DT colleague SUE from The Scrappings of Sue so you can win a Nestabilities Large Scallop Ovals Set!!! How good is that?
I can't wait to see all your green, pink and white birthday cards.
Hope you all have a blessed week!

Birthday Sundaes challenge: All about Brads

This week's challenge at Birthay Sundaes Blog is to create a Birthday Card using at least 3 brads on it.
This is a birthday card I made for a special person who will be receiving as her gift from her family, a trip to Europe (such an amazing gift!!)
The plane and it's banner are from New Arrival Cricut cartridge.
Papers are from K&Company Lemon Citron and Sparkly Sweet stacks.
I  knit the little chain and used eyelets to join them from the plane to the banner.
Brads are used on the plane's propeller and on the left upper corner as embellishments.
Sentiment is a Hero arts stamp.

Birthday Sundaes challenge #21

Wow! What a busy and fun week we had!
There were lots of wonderful cake/cupcake cards this week and all of us at the DT had so much fun with the blog hop. I hope (and I know) you did too.
So today is a very special day because this is our first official challenge as a new design team, we also have a new sponsor this week and I have the announcement of my blog candy winner... 
Let me introduce you our sponsor for this week:

¡Vaya! Qué semana tan ocupada y divertida hemos tenido.
Hubo muchas maravillosas tarjetas con pasteles y quequitos esta semana, y el equipo de diseño se divirtió mucho con el "blog hop". Espero (y sé que así fue) que ustedes también.
Hoy es un día especial porque es nuestro primer reto oficial con el nuevo equipo de diseño, además tenemos un nuevo patrocinador y hoy tengo el anuncio del ganador de mi dulcecito  por el "blog hop".
Dejenme presentatles nuestro patrocinador de esta semana:

Gingerloft, is offering one lucky person 3 digis of her choice!!! All you have to do for a chance to win is to enter your card at the Birthday Sundaes Blog... this week's challenge is the everyone's favorite: "Anything goes as long as it is a birthday card".
Gingerloft,  está ofreciendo a una persona 3 imágenes digitales de su elección!!! Lo único que debes hacer para ganar es enlazar su tarjeta al blog de Birthday Sundaes... esta semana el reto es el favorito de todos: "Cualquier cosa se vale siempre y cuando sea una tarjeta de cumpleaños".

Here is my card for this week. It came out pretty masculine despite of the glitter I added to the cake (lol) and I am happy about that because I was almost out of masculine cards.
I had lots of fun making this card  because after I colored my image with markers, I decided to rip and  distress every layer on the card.
Esta es mi tarjeta para esta semana. Resultó bastante masculina a pesar de la escarcha que le puse en el pastel (je je) y yo quedé feliz con eso porque ya casi me estaba quedando sin tarjetas de cumpleaños masculinas. 
Me  divertí mucho haciendo esta tarjeta porque después de colorear la  imágen con marcadores, decidí razgar y añejar un poco cada capa de la  tarjeta.

Mojo Monday 202

It looks like I've been having more time to play with my craft items this week!  {Happy dance here}
This is a quick scrapbook page that I made using the sketch from this week's challenge at Mojo Monday. As you can see scrap booking is not my strength, but it feels good to make some scrap booking out of so many cards. And my little one is happy because it is all about her. (he he)
This page will be the first page of the album that I am making for my daughter with pictures of when she was at a Kids garden which name is "Play Time". That was last year but I am way behind on my scrap booking. (Just in case you are wondering why I wrote down Play Time as the title if she is not playing on the picture (lol))

Hope you like it and if you have any advise that could makes me improve on my scrap booking, PLEASE feel free to leave a comment... I love to read comments!

First time at Cricut 360° / Mi primera vez en Cricut 360°

Since Cricut 360° challenge blog born I've been wanting to play with them, but for one reason or another I always missed the closing dates. Today I finally  end my card on time and here it is my entry for this week's challenge. This week's theme is "Transportation"
At the moment I saw the theme, I thought in this cut from Sweethearts cartridge. I love how romantic this card came up! I wanted to pop up the cut so as embellishments I only used some flower beads and small pieces of cord that I had stored.
I will also entry this card to My Craft Spot Monday Challenge which theme for this week is You make me smile.
I hope you like this one.

Desde que inició el blog de retos de Cricut 360° he querido participar en ellos, pero por una u otra razón siempre se me pasan las fechas de cierre. Hoy finalmente pude terminar mi tarjeta a tiempo y aquí está mi entrada para el reto de esta semana. El tema es  "Medios de transporte".
Apenas ví el tema anunciado pensé en este corte del cartucho Sweethearts... me encanta lo romántico de esta tarjeta! Quería resaltar el corte, así que únicamente usé como decoración unos beads de florecitas y unos pedacitos de cordón verde que tenia guardados entre mis cosas.
También voy a incluir esta tarjeta en el reto de My Craft Spot donde el tema es "Tu me haces sonreir"
Espero les guste.

Note card set and a winner / Set de tarjetas y una ganadora

If you are looking for the Birthday Sundaes Blog Hop, please click HERE

First things first, let's go with the Sandra's Butterflies Birthday Blog Hop candy winner!
I used to select my winner and the follow was the result:


 You won a set of your choice of Dyed Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot.

Now on the note card set:

I made this set of cards as a gift for a very good friend of my mom.
I used Damask Decor card feature and tag feature and made the box out of one sheet of card stock a few folds. 
Embellished both the cards and the box with ribbon.
What I like the most of these type of gifts is that the recipient could use the cards for what ever motive she has, they could be Birthday, Congratulations, Thinking of you or even Sympathy cards.
I also print out a set of name cards and added them to the box.

Hice este set de tarjetas como un regalo para una muy buena amiga de mi mamá.
Usé la función de tarjeta del cartucho Damask Decor y la de la colilla. La caja la hice con una pieza de cartón y unos pocos dobleces. Para decorar tanto las tarjetas como la caja solo usé un poco de cinta.
Lo que más me gusta de este tipo de regalos es que quién los reciba, puede usar las tarjetas para cualquiera que sea el motivo, sirven perfectamente para cumplaños, felicitaciones o hasta para tarjetas de pésame.
También imprimí un set de 10 tarjetas de nombre y se las agregué a la caja.

 I hope you liked this and thanks for visiting me!
Espero les haya y gracias por visitarme!

I used my favorite butterfly cut, which is the one from Indie Art. Add glitter over the top layer and then I added some lace and pearls to the card. I printed the background paper from

My daughter is a Butterfly lover too so she wanted to play and asked me if she could make a card with butterflies... so, this is her card...

Birthday Sundaes Challenge #19 - Inspiration Photo

Happy Sunday!!!
WOW!!! We have lots of amazing entries last week at the Birthay Sundaes
Today at Birthday Sundaes we have an Inspiration Challenge.
We are called to use the photo to be inspired by the theme or the colors for our Birthday cards! (We only ask that if you are going to post the picture on your personal blog, be sure to give the credit of it to the source)

 Many thoughts came into my mind with this picture, but I decided to make a card that is pretty much stuck to the picture it self.
I used Life is a Beach cart for the base cut and Sweet Treats for the cupcake. The tag was computer generated by printing the sentiment on a slide sheet and then hand cut it.
Add lots and lots of glitter and done.
Hope you like my card and looking forward to see your creations this week!


Fabulous 40 (and an embossing tip)

I made this card for a very dear friend of mine that will be celebrating her 40th birthday today.
I bought the Forever Young cartridge last year thinking that me and many of my friends will be turning 40 this year, and this cart just scream how we always feel young. This card is pretty simple but I love how it came up. I hope my friend likes it too.
For the inside I just print the text over that pearly paper and then embossed it! 

I have to say that I used to hate that paper because the ink delays hours while dries. BUT I figured out that if after print the text you add embossing powder and then heat it (with the heat gun) any text you print over the paper will be perfectly embossed and takes the card to another level. So that is my tip for you and I hope it works for you, if so, let me know! I would love to see what you can do with this.

I decided to make a little present for my friend too. So I made a Guest Book. 
I must say that it was not exactly my idea. It came from Paula Bee from Craft with Bee... She is one of the most talented crafters I've ever seen and I love to go for inspiration at her blog every time I can.
Well, here are some pics of the Guest book that matches my card and some of the internal pages.
