Latina Crafter Sketch #43 y Party Favors con Amor

Saludos a todas.  Ya se termina el primer mes del año 2015 (qué rápido, ¿verdad?) y entramos en el mes del "amor y la amistad". Estamos elaborando con mucho amor y esmero nuestros proyectos para regalar (o vender) en San Valentín.  Aunque, para las que nos gustan las manualidades, no necesitamos razones para crear, sólo nuestra creatividad e imaginación.

Hoy comparto con ustedes dos proyectos.  Primero, una tarjeta utilizando el Sketch #43 con un Twist. Las protagonistas son casitas.

Hello everyone. The first month of 2015 is coming to an end (all too quickly) and we'll be entering the "month of love".  We're lovingly making our projects for Valentine's Day as gifts or to sell. Although, we don't need a reason to craft, just our creativity and our imagination.Today I'm sharing two projects. The first one is a card I made using Latina Crafter's Sketch #43 with a Twist. The twist is we're to make our project with a house as the main theme.

Usé la imagen de la iglesia del set Mi Bautismo de Softpencil Studios, pensando en la "casa del Señor" como protagonista de nuestras vidas como creyentes. Escogí el papel de fondo de Echo Park (This & That) por que me pareció como una página de la Biblia,  Estampé la imagen sobre otro papel de la misma colección.

Here I used the church from the "Mi Bautismo" stamp set by Softpencil Studios, thinking that "Our Lord's house" is central in our beliefs.  The sentiment is the first verse from Psalm 122: "I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord".  The pattern paper is from This & That by Echo Park. 

El segundo proyecto es una cajita que elaboré para el Blog Hop Party Favors con Amor usando el set "Para Siempre"

The second project is a candy box using Latina Crafter's "Para Siempre" stamp set.

Espero que les haya gustado mis proyectos y muchas gracias por la visita. Hasta la próxima. Abrazos y bendiciones.

Hope you liked my projects and thanks for the visit. Until my next post. Hugs and blessings.

Purple & Teal

Happy Sunday everyone.  It's been a while since my last post, the holidays kept me busy and life kept getting in the way.  Things are settling now so I'll be back on track.

For today's card, I'm using the color combination from the Mod Squad Challenge where we are to use Purple and Teal.  For a bonus entry we should use any stamp set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs. Here I used her Fabulous Frame and Fabulous Frame Fillers.

I used Gina K's Wild Orchid (Purple) and Blue Raspberry (Teal) card stock. The flower is colored using Spectrum Noir markers BT2, BT4, BT5, BT9 CG1, CG2 and DG4. The dotted lines and corner flowers were first stamped with Gina K's White Pigment Ink and then I went over it with a White Sakura Pen.

I really like how it turned out, hope you like it too. Thanks so much for stopping by, and until my next post, have a wonderfully creative week.

Hugs and Blessings.
