May gives you flowers.... planner

Hello crafty friends!! 

Today I am sharing with you one of the pages of my Calendar Girls Planner for ADORNit, since May is around the corner I thought in start preparing my May calendar month. 

I colored the page with a different medium, I used my Chameleon markers this time and I love the result.  With those markers you can have a pretty good range of shades but I wanted to keep it with bright colors because it has lots of flowers.


For the sentiment, I just added some color to some of the letters, keeping the same range of colors. 


The bigger flower looks like a Margarita to me, I am not an expert in flowers but I do love them. 


I hope you like it!!

All beauty in a jar

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Happy Thursday!!  Today I am sharing another project using ADORNit products, in this case I used the Home Grown Watercolor Mini Coloring Book.  Lately, o some years by now I think, the mason jars have become very popular in the kitchen, y cookies and of course in scrapbook and cardmaking wouldn't be the exception.

I love the mason jars too; therefore, this Home Grown Watercolor Mini Book is one of my favorites. 

I colored this card with my Prismacolors and used Gamsol to blend the colors perfectly.  I added some washi tape also from ADORNit y some black dots with puffed paint.

To the flowers I added Stickles, and to the whole mason jar I put Mod Pogde Dimensional Magic, to bad the camera didn't get it right.

Tarjetas de tulipanes

Hola amigas!!! Hoy les presento estas tarjetas para su inspiracion usando un archivo de SnapDragon Snippets llamado Tulips Sprigs Trio Card, el cual me encanto desde que lo vi, ya que mis flores favoritas son precisamente los tulipanes.

Tulips Sprigs Trio Card, SnapDragon Snippets, Ruthie Lopez 5

Últimamente estoy con el mood de hacer dos tarjetas con el mismo archivo pero en diferentes colores, en esta ocasión no fue la excepción.

Al principio pensé en hacer los tulipanes rosas para la tarjeta de fondo negro y los anaranjados para la tarjeta de color crema pero al final, cuando las estaba armando me di cuenta que no combinaban muy bien, así que cambie los fondos y el resultado me encanto!!!

La verdad que en esta ocasión las dos tarjetas me encantaron!!! Creo que la combinación de colores quedo perfecta. 

En las dos tarjeta estampe el sentimiento Happy Birthday (el sello es de My Creative time se llama Prehistoric Holidays), en esta use la tinta whisper white de Stampin Up, solo que cuando estaba tomando las fotos mi ayudante embarro un poco la tinta, pero decidí dejarla así.

La segunda tarjeta, es con tonos rosas.  En las dos tarjetas use un folder de embossing de puntitos (se llama polkadots), que a ser sincera es el que mas uso si no por decir el único :(. Cuando recién compre mi Big Shot, compre un motón de embossing folders, la mayoría están nuevos.... no he comprado mas y ya estoy en el mood de usar todo lo que tengo.

A esta tambien le puse puntitos blancos en las flores y los tallos con una pluma de tinta de gel blanca. Solo para darle un toque diferente.

En esta tarjeta use el mismo sentimiento pero con la tinta que para mi fortuna combina perfecto con las flores, es de Hero Arts - Dye Ink Pad - Shadow Ink - Mid-Tone - Raspberry Jam.

Espero que les hayan gustado!!! 

Les recuerdo que el archivo se llama Tulips Sprigs Trio Card y lo pueden encontrar en la tienda de Silhouette Design Store y también en la tienda de SnapDragon Snippets

Nos vemos en la próxima.

When life gives you lemons……

Hello Crafting Friends!!! How are you doing? hope you are just great!! 

Today I want to share with you this beautiful card with you.... 

"When life gives you lemons....make Lemonade"

I made this card using one of the sheets that comes in the Flamingo Fever Mini Coloring Book from ADORNit

I colored it with my Prismacolors and to blend the colors I used Gamsol and a stump, that helps to have a nice colored image.

To the banner I added Stickles, when it was dried I put Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.

I also added Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the glass with lemonade, to have a "real look" of lemonade.

The frame around the card was made using my Martha Stewart punch set, to be honest.... this was mas first time using them, I have had them for so long and they are pretty much new.

What do you think? Are you up for a lemonade? 

Using the cards of the Mini Coloring Books makes things really easy, as you only have to get your coloring pencils or watercolor paints ready to put in action, and you will have a card in no time.

Happy Birthday Card!

Hello Crafting Friends!! Hope your day is going great!!!

Today I am sharing for your inspiration a project made with ADORNit products!! 

For this card I used one of the sheets of the Make A Wish Mini Coloring Book, I colored the card with my Prismacolor pencils, to blend the colors I used Gamsol and a stump, that helps to have a nice colored image.


For the sentiment, I just added some lines with glitter pens. 

I colored the edge of the card with blue Prismacolor pencil to have some kind of a frame to it. 

The base of the card is black cardstock. 


To the candles, besides of coloring them in cheerful colors, I added Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, I am in love of this product!!! You can also use Glossy Accents, gives the same effect, but to be honest I like this one better. but for bigger areas I used Mod Podge.
