Road Trip: New Mexico

I got to play with my new toy, Teresa Collin's Cut'N'Boss by Craftwell!  And I am so loving it!! The large embossing folders are gorgeous and the die set amazing!   I bought it when it debut on HSN and I may have signed up for the auto ship. ;)
I embossed the turquoise paper with the triangle embossing folder, love the deep impression.  I used the heart in circle die included in the bundle.  These are a few of the photos  taken in New Mexico on our recent road trip.  I used the new Tribal, Bordes Variados stamp sets from Latina Crafter.  I used the 2x2 die to crop the photos and cut the squares to stamp.  I embellished the page with the wood veneers and sequins found in the June Kit.  The washi tape is #65 and it also has a tribal motif.  

I am also playing along with Creative Scrappers' Sketch #269. Thanks for stopping by.

3rd Annivesary Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Latina Crafter's Anniversary Blog Hop!  If you arrived from Joan's place, you're right on track.
Hola y bienvenidos al Tercer Aniversario Blog Hop! Si llegó desde el blog Joan, estas un buen camino.

Here is my labor of love:
 Aquí está mi labor de amor:

Embroidery, cross stitch they are both the same to me.  I have only once tried cross stitch and I never completed my project.  This project was my first ever attempt to embroider and I am pretty happy with the results.   But I  must admit, at one point, I was going to ask my Mom to finish it up for me.  Yes, true story, but I decided to completed myself.  I can't wait to show it to her.

Bordado, punto de cruz, los dos son lo mismo para mí. Sólo una vez he tratado de punto de cruz y nunca terminado mi proyecto. Este proyecto fue mi primer intento para bordar y estoy bastante contenta con los resultados. Pero debo admitir que, en un momento, grité, "¡Ama ven ayudame! , verda, pero decidí a completar yo misma. Estoy ansioso por mostrar se lo a mi Socorrito.

Here's what you'll need for this project.  Stamps, ink, fabric, 6" embroidery loom and embroidery floss {not pictured}.

Aquí es lo que usted necesita para este proyecto. Sellos, tinta, tela, 6 " telar y bordado hilo de bordar {no se muestra} .

Here's a tip for you, before stamping on fabric, clean the block of any ink.
Un tip:  antes de estampar sobre tela, limpie el bloque exceso de tinta

At this point I was so glad I handled the stitch!  This is my first embroidery project ever and I am still amazed I got it done!
¡En este punto estaba muy contento de haber manejado la puntada! Este es mi primer proyecto de bordados y aún estoy sorprendido lo termine!

Happy Bee-Day

Today I tried a technique I've been wanting to try like forever; reverse stamping.  The stamp set has two cute bee images, but I really liked this bee.  It's a super easy technique to do.  Give it a try.
The stamp set is Bee Happy and the stamped label is from Stitched Greetings by Pink and Main.  Love how the honeycomb turned out too. 

Here is Pink and Main's full June release!

Hello Summer

Happy Saturday, today I'm sharing a Summer card using Pink & Main's Chalk Alpha, Flip Flops and Tab Alpha.  Summer is pretty much here, way too early, but hopefully she's kind and leaves early.

The new Chalk Alpha set is one of my favorite alpha sets.  Seriously.  Oh and that paper Summer Bliss paper from Echo Park has the cutest patterns!  I used a straw intended for a scrapbook page, but it got left out.  Found it on my desk along with the orange circle.  Love when that happens.
I played with a Retro Sketch, but realized the deadline was yesterday, oops.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

And here is the full June release!

Ahoy there! {Pink & Main June Release}

I played with Pink and Main's newest stamp sets.  They have released six new stamps this month.  My card features, Sea Icons and My Anchor sets.  Totally the season for a trip to the seashore, especially with the heat wave we're expecting it sounds like a plan.
When I first saw these stamps, I knew I had to get the Ahoy There paper pad from Carta Bella.
Below is the photo of the stamp sets linked to their store.

And here is the full June release!

What a hoot!

I am super late in posting my card.  Yikes, should have gone live last Friday!
I used DC9's new Owl cards and Pink and Main's What a hoot stamp set.  Darn, can't remember the paper I used, I think it's the same one I used  on the previous card. LOL
Sorry for my tardiness, what happen was just this, I went on vacation, a road trip to St. Louis for my God-Son's graduation.  When I got back, I got sick, boooo!  Then, I started working on his graduation invites that will be sharing soon.  That's my story.

Very important news, Designs on Cloud 9 is looking to add to their Design Team!  Check out their Facebook page here for the details.
