Best Witches #PinkandMain

Tis the season for Halloween and Fall colors! Now if only the weather would cooperate.
Here is my first Halloween card.  I used Pink and Main stamps and dies, listed below, and DCWV Spooky Delight 6"x 6" stack.

I colored this cute witch with Spectrum Noir markers and added a bit of clear Wink of Stella.   Difficult to capture, but her hair is purple grayish hair.
Love that there's a coordinate die for her.  I also used the bats and coordinating dies from the Witch House.   How I love dies with stitches or stamp images for that matter.  I used the Scallop Wave dies to cut the bottom "trick or treat" paper.  Love the stitches on these dies, did I say that already?


Below images are of the product used.  They are linked to the shops:




Inspirational Cards #LatinaCrafter

Translation: We all have a purpose in life

We all have a purpose in this life.  Sometimes finding it my be a struggle.  Sending this card to someone special today. 
 I used Basic Grey's rub on.  Do they still sell rub ons?   Anyway, I have plenty in my stash . 
The sentiment is from Latina Crafter's Unidos somos fuertes {United we are strong} stamp set. 

Here's a closer look:



Here's another card using Prima Marketing paper and flowers.  Sentiment from Latina Crafter:
Translation: Life invites you to be happy

I embossed the card with the Cut N Boss by Craftwell using their chevron pattern 8.5" x 11" embossing folder.  I also used Heidi Swapp's frames and sprayed it with her Color Shine mists.  Love how it turned out.  Love the flowers and sequins embellishments.


Here's a closer look at the card:


Thank you so much for stopping by today, enjoy the rest of the week. {I may come back to share some Halloween cards today} :)

80 FOR THE WIN #DCWV #PinkandMain

Today I'm sharing the birthday decor I made featuring DCWV's 6"x8" DIY Project Stack Banners: Canvas 


Last weekend we celebrated my mother-in-law's 80th Birthday....80 for the win! Happy Birthday Pat!!
The Project Stacks make so easy for decorating for any event.  It's a party-in-a-stack.  You can easily create multiple banners with one stack.
I cut the canvas banners, punched holes and used twine.  I added the medium pinwheels to embellish and added a smaller banner. Love the layered banner.  I attached the banner to bamboo sticks and jammed them through the wood fence.  Hey it worked.





80 for the win!!  I asked Pat to raise her sign high when she needed our undivided attention.  It was her birthday after all.  She raised it once.  She got our attention and asked, "what time is lunch".
I designed the photo prop using my Cricut Explore Air.  I also used a smaller version for the birthday card, photo below.


Mom and Pat, this duo is hilarious!  They both had such a good time.


Pat and Sweeney.  Disclaimer, my sister created the party hat using construction paper, markers and Christmas tinsel.  {She wanted to make sure she got credit for it.} :) :)

Here is the tri-fold card.  I scaled the "80 for the win" to fit the front of the card.

The inside of the card: the owl is a cutout included in the DIY Banner Stack.  I included a mini banner and a small pinwheel.  I then hand stamped the sentiment using Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes.

To create the large pinwheel, I trimmed the smaller squares (3" x 3") that create the small pinwheels.  I was left with 5"x5" square and used it to create the large pinwheel.


My parents and Pat....234 years of combined wisdom.  I am so happy and blessed to have them in my life.

Thank you for visiting.

DIY Mini Notepad #LatinaCrafter #DCWV

I'm sharing a quick and simple mini notepad today. I love stationery especially notepads, but they quickly add up to a pretty penny.  I have enough pretty paper to make my own and so I did. I used DCWV Hello Darling paper and Latina Crafter's scripture stamp, B├ístate mi gracia.

If you don't have The Cinch, use a standard hole punch and use jute or twine to bind your notepad.  There are plenty of tutorials and inspiration on Pinterest.

I trimmed the white paper, just regular copy paper, to fit the cover along with posterboard.  I stamped the sentiment in green ink and ran it all through The Cinch.

Here is my mini 4"x6" notepad:




Thanks for stopping by today.

Lucky Sevens #DCWV #PinkandMain



Today I'm sharing the party decor I made featuring the paper by DCWV from the DIY Project Stack: Stencils and DIY Project Stack: Baby Girl.  Both stacks have some fun and festive pattern paper.


Last weekend we celebrated my Dad's 77th birthday.  Happy Birthday Dad!!
I used the Cricut Explore to cut the banner using the 12"x12" pattern paper from the DIY Project Stack: Stencils.  I added streamers for a more party look.
The backdrop is bulleting board paper you can find in the school section at your local Joann's.


Sweet treats in french fry containers, yes please.  I used my Cricut Explore to cut and stamped the sentiment using Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes.   I used the pattern paper from the DIY Project Stack: Baby Girl, not just for baby girls, and the Kraft paper included in the DIY Project Stack: Stencils.

Here's a closer view.


Additional party decor, paper lanterns.

My Dad and my niece, feliz cumplea├▒os Dad.


and here is my one and only GodSon, AC with his Papi Beto.

I have three older sisters......here they are.  Almost a perfect picture; I'm not in it.


Thank you for visiting and enjoy your weekend.

Be Happy #eBrush

Happy Friday, this is Yolie from the Team eBrush sharing my Be Happy shaker card using Bella Blvd's Just Add Color collection.
I used gold and silver Sharpies and cut all the stars for the shaker with Cricut Explore and stamped the "Be Happy" on acetate.  Now let's get eBrushing.



I used the cutout star to cover the center of the star base.  I eBrushed silver and gold and with the first setting, lightly eBrushed the center with silver.


I didn't have black foam tape so I placed the shaker upside down and eBrushed the sides with a black Sharpie.

Here is my Be Happy shaker card. 



Here's a closer look.  I wanted the outline of the star to pop so I left it as is.  I had the mini star sequins forever and a day.  I'm so happy I was able to use them.  Just love how the card turned out. 

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend.
