Clean and Simple!

Hello Friends,

Today I bring a clean and simple card..  I always have to say this when a make a clean and simple card: this is tough for me as I have hard time not using my flowers, ribbons, brads and all at once...lol lo

Anyways, last week I realized that I don't have simple thank you cards, I mean,  I wanted cards with no Tilda or Bears as images.. Cards that can be given to anyone in any occasion.. I didnt think the cards I had in my stash would go well for that particular occasion.

So I decided that I'll make those kind of cards from now on.. well, I used a butterfly in this one, but I still think this is appropriate for a thank you card!!! .. so I'm happy.

Take a look  at my card:

I'm pleased with it. What do you think?!

Here are the materials I used to make it:
  • spellbinders: classic and scalloped circles
  • rhinestones: recollection
  • cardstock: K&Company
  • stamp: 
  • embossing powder: EK Sucess
  • stamps: Inkadinkado
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Art with no Boundaries: anything goes (ends 18 May)
  2. Simon Says and Show: anything goes (ends 20 May)
  3. Paper Sundaes: things with wings (ends 19 May)
  4. Clean & Simple: sketch (ends 25 May)
  5. Top Tip Tuesday: clean and simple (ends 29 May)

Renaissance Gilli!

Hello Gilli Girls,
I bring a card for you today for the embossing challenge at House of Gilli.
This is my first time playing with Renaissance Gilli stamp.. Could not believe, I have this stamp for such a long time and had never inked it up.
Take a look:

For the embossing challenge, I have embossed gilli and sentiment images. Take a closer look at the embossed image and sentiment:

I inked gilli image with versamark and then embossed with black embossing powder..  I really liked the effect as Gilli looks shining. Sentiment is from Stamping Scrapping Designs. this stamp matches perfectly with spellbinders which I used to cut the heart shape. I placed my Gilli on the cardstock cut with nesties.  I colored the gilli image using copic markers.
Pearl chain, flower, cardstock and ribbon are from my stash.
I’m entering this card in the following challenges:
I hope you like my card and come on over to play with us
Many Thanks for stopping by!

Flowers to You!

Hello Friends,
I made a card today for a swap I joined in one of yahoo groups I belong too. I had to make this card with a embossed technique.. we were supposed to emboss the image with black color, color with marker afterwards and do some sponging around the image aftweards.
I had trouble finding the right image for this.. I wanted to make it with a butterfly at first, but when I saw my cute forever friends teddy bear, I changed my mind.. well, I also decided to make the card in a smaller size because the image is small..  now that I’m used to 6x6” size cards, smaller cards look funny!!  lol
so here goes:
still cute, isn’t it?
here are the material in this card:
  • stamp: forever friends
  • copic markers: RV09, RV06, RV04, E33, E53, E51, YG63, YG61
  • embossing powder: EK sucess
  • ink: versamark, EK sucess
  • rhinestones: KC
  • heart 3D sticker: Craft in Cratin`
  • cardstock: K&Company
  • stash: flowers, ribbon, doily
These are the challenges I`m entering my card:
  1. Forever Friends Challenge: spring for the monthy challenge (ends 30 May)
  2. Forever Friends Challenge: flowers  for the fortnighty challenge (ends 13 May)
  3. 2 Sisters: anything goes (ends 11 May)

Happy Scrapbooking Day!

Hello Friends,

Happy Scrapbooking Day!!!

To celebrate this date I decided to make a digi scrapbooking page.
I had absolutely no idea how to make it...  so I download few freebies and make this page, take a look:

Last year my Friends and I went to a Friends` house who lives in the city of  Brasilia, capital of Brazil.
Since I was kid I wished to go to Brasilia to see all what I learnt on the books. 
So this day was a very special one!

Anyway, let me know what you all think about my ever first digi page!

Thanks for stopping by!!
