My cup of tea!

Almost at the last minute! I want to tell to my new visitors that every card that I post here has been made with my own drawings. There is always a new drawing on every new post!

I made this card with my “Cup of Tea" and "My Cup of Tea Tag" drawings. I used two, because one of the challenges in which I will enter required two different stamps. I used the sketch of "Our Creative Corner" because I liked it a lot. I do like the final result with the mix of colors of this card in particular. I painted the cup, which have two layers, with watercolors and I added liquid embossing coat on top. As I printed the drawings in white cardstock, I needed to give some “age” to the the tag. I did it using much diluted Burnt Sienna ink. I love to work with inks:)

Thanks for your visit!

Just mushrooms....

Hi! So many challenges and so little time! I would love to have more hours to make more cards:)
This time I have a new card to show you, that I made using the Mojo Monday Sketch. I also did my best effort to include the requirements of other challenges on it.

I drew these Mushrooms especially for the Stampartic Challenge, which asks for mushrooms on the card. It was very funny, I love them! I printed the drawing several times to give my card a 3D effect. In fact, the mushrooms and the butterfly have two layers and the ladybug have three layers. She looks great with crystal effect. I included a butterfly because I really like them and I think are good as embellishment. Once I painted it I added a thin layer of glitter to give it a subtle shimmer effect.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Tag Collection and a Project

Hi, thanks for your visit! For the first time, today I will not show you a card. Today I did a project for the Cuttlebug Challenge "I Can See Clearly Now" and some others....

I was inspired on a recycling project of my friend Cindy. I have to confess that I have a recycling heart. I must also confess that ... yes, I like to cook. I like to investigate different recipes, also the cuisine of different countries and I work on my special recipes from time to time. Between trial and error, I have gathered many recipes that are already “my own recipes”. Sometimes some generous friends have asked me the recipe of something they have tried in my home... then I thought it would be nice to give them my recipes with my little tips. I used a CD case, which I found very functional because it can be open and, as it support itself, you can see the recipe easily. I put a little ring in a corner to have all the recipes together.

I decorated the cover with a couple of scalloped squares, three leaves, a butterfly and one tag of my Tags’ new collection©.

My Teddy Bear...

Hello! Thanks for visiting:) This week I have found several challenges that ask for including a Teddy Bear, so I finally used my Rex, my Teddy Bear.

I drew Rex as a Teddy Bear some time ago and I have not had the opportunity for him to be in my cards. Unfortunately, as a child I did not have a Teddy Bear, but I treasured everyone of my crayons:)

Returning to the challenges, in this card I used the Mojo Monday Sketch 151. I added a few details to participate in other challenges too:) I printed the image several times for a 3D effect. Rex has green eyes and they look great with crystal finish. In addition to the drawing, I made the flowers and the butterflies. I like to use my embossing folders in my cards. I think they are a great detail to decorate them. I also used my sewing machine, but I did not want to the stitches stand out much, because I used light colors in the background.

Charlotte, the Ballerina

Hello! Thanks for your visit. Today I want to show you my new digi-drawing. She is Charlotte, the Ballerina.


She is a very feminine and sweet girl. Today Charlotte is a ballet dancer. I am afraid the picture does not show it, but the skirt and ballet slippers have glitter and Charlotte has beautiful green eyes. I used the Mojo Monday sketch contest. It was not a requirement to add a sentiment, but later I will add one. I think we all once dreamed of becoming ballerinas and although many do not succeed, I am sure that the very idea of wearing these beautiful costumes made us happy. You ever dreamed of being a ballerina…?
