Happy New Year 's Eve!

I want to take a minute to thank all of you who have been following me throughout the year. This year has had many ups and downs, but fortunately I made it through and with a lot of ideas to share with you. 
As you can see I changed the look of my blog a little and that is thanks to Holly Becker and her crew, because I attended her online course, called Blogging Your Way, which I highly recommend.

I made these little elves in cold porcelain as place cards. Those are my children's names and it took so long to mold them that I only made four, I know, what a shame for the rest of the family right? Shhh... don't tell them they're being left out!

The last card for 2013 is to wish all of you Happy New Year's Eve! 
Have a wonderful 2014!!!

I am back!!

It is hard to believe two months have past since my last post. I thought I would be back sooner! Well, I am here to dust off the cobwebs and share some projects I made for the holidays. I have been so busy working with cold porcelain and  attending photography and watercolor classes, that I had no time to work with my cards, sniff sniff. 

I made this card to participate in the Retrosketches challenge. Challenges encourage me not only to create something original, but also to keep my mojo flowing. 

I made the envelope using the Envelope Punch Board (133774). I had purchased it a while ago but I haven't used it until now. I loooooove it!!! It is an awesome tool that allows you to create your very own envelopes that match your cards. Isn't that great?

I hope you have had more time than me to make some projects for the holidays. 
Thanks for stopping by!!
Happy stamping!

These are the supplies I used for this card:
  1.  Whisper White cardstock (100730)
  2. Smoky Slate cardstock     (131202)
  3. Festive Flurry stamp set   (Wood 131778 Clear 131781)

Leafing Friday Mashup

This is my last challenge as a hostess at the Friday Mashup, sniff, sniff. I will no longer be part of the design team. I had a great experience designing for the Friday Mashup and it is time to move on with other endeavors. I learned a lot from these talented ladies from whom I got so much inspiration.

My challenge for this week is to create a project with leaves and because orange is my favorite color, you can mash it up with that color.

I am taking Chemistry 102 with Tim Holtz and I applied the Distress Stain Brayering technique on my card. To cut the leaves I used the Autumn accent die and for the background I used a sticky canvas sheet where I applied ink and stamped the En Francais stamp (127790).

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with a  "Tree or Leaves."
  2. Create a project using the "Color Orange."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Project with Leaves/ Tree & the Color Orange."

Halloween is around the corner, and Amanda at the Friday Mashup has a spooky challenge for us.

This old stamp set called House of Haunts is one of my favorites. I love that haunted house, and there are lot of possibilities where you can use this stamp. The house is also embossed in nlack embossing powder. I really enjoy adding washi tape whenever I have the chance, I think it gives a kind of informal look and I like that. The new candy dots are adorable (130931), they are the perfect touch for any project.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "the Sketch."
  2. Create a "Spooky" project.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Spooky project using the above sketch. "
