Above all else

Above all else, guard your heart,    for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

A simple card but made with a lot of heart.  The most recent LC release contained 2x2 scripture sentiments, this Proverbs scripture is beautiful.
I used My Mind's Eye paper and added embellishments you can find in the store.  Everything is linked below and thank you for stopping by.

A photo

Translation: A photo makes each moment eternal

Here's a layout of my Dulce using Latina Crafter's May Sketch.  I used Una foto, wood veneer, seam binding, glassine bag, 2x2 die.  The paper is from DCWV Cherry Limeade.

Here's a quick tip.  A couple of spritz of Color Shine into a baggie to color white seam binding:

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!! Sharing the cupcake gift sets I made for my Mom, sisters and mother-in-law. The box is a cut file originally for K Cups, but I resized to fit cupcakes. Paper from DCWV and My Mind's Eye, flowers by Prima, embossing folder and border die Anna Griffin. 
Stamps from Latina Crafter and Pink & Main.  Ribbon, twine, bling and pearls from my stash.

They loved them and where a big hit!! 

Here's the link to the box cutting file:

Mother's Day Gift

I designed and put together the pendant for one of my sisters.  The bail and glass cover are from Close To My Heart, Base & Bling collection.  I packaged it up in the Library Pocket cutting file from Designs On Cloud 9.  The pocket is going inside the card I made here.  The sentiment is from Pink and Main's Super Mom stamp set.  This was such an easy gift to put together, but honestly it took me longer to put the chain in the glassine bag.  The pendant kept slipping off the holder. LOL!

I also made a pendant for me, Nina is short for God-Mother in Spanish.

Thanks for stopping by!


Thanks Merci

Here's a quick and easy card to make using Pink and Main's Directional Borders and Many Thanks stamp sets.  I used a little washi tape to mask off the cell phone and use the talk bubble.  I also played with Just Add Ink's sketch challenge, linked below.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I have two cards to share with you. Here's the first one:
Translation:  Best Mother in the World

 Seguí el sketch del reto del mes y utilicé los siguientes sellos y productos disponibles en la tienda.
I followed LC's May sketch and used the following stamps and product available in the LC's store.
La mejor Madre, Eres mi mundo, clear rhinestones , flechas/corazones wood veneers and  My Mind's Eye, Oliver.

Aqui les presento la seguanda tarjeta:
Here's my second card:

Translation:  Sister, Happy Mother's Day

El washi tape es mi mejor amigo. Lo he estado usando para enmascarar los sentimientos para hacer mi "propio sellitos, permítanme explicar. Tal como lo hice con el sello  El nos amó. Cubrí la Escritura con la cinta del washi, entinté la corona, quité el washi y estampe. Luego utiliza las palabras que se encuentran en La mejor Madre para crear mi sentimiento. Es así de fácil, intentalo. 

Washi tape is my best friend.  I have been using it to mask sentiments to make my own using other stamps.  Such as I did with the El nos amó stamp set.  I covered the scripture with washi tape, inked the wreath, removed the washi and stamped.  I then used words found in La mejor Madre to create my sentiment.   The paper is from My Mind's Eye Unforgettable.

Muchas gracias por visitarme y espero que te gusten mis tarjetas y el tip del washi tape. Por favor, regresen al blog  de LC y visiten al DT.
Thank you so much for visiting me and I hope you like my cards and the masking tip.  Please go back the LC blog and visit my DT sisters.
