The three Little Pigs

Hi my dear friends,

So happy to share today the first card I made for the Super Star Designer Challenge hosted by My favorite things, I have had the idea of this card for a little whilebut it took me some time to figure out the execution specially the roof 🙂  I may be getting slower at making cards, it took me 3 days to make this cutie!

Imagine what would have happened if the third little pig wouldn’t have believed on himself!!! Sometimes he most powerful messages can be found on kid’s books !!! This was my inspiration for this card that was made with only MFT stamps and dies.

For the little pigs, I stamped the cute pigs from Hogs heaven, colored them with zig kuretake clean colors and “dress them up” with my micro pen :D, as a reference for their outfits I used the Three Little Pigs from Disney silly symphony , added the bows from the same set, they look quite similar to the cartoon :D. The house was made first cutting out the windows and door from watercolor paper  (the door was cut out with the slider channel builder and then colored with distress inks (I added a nob too)  then I colored the rest of the house  with antique linen distress ink and added a piece of acetate to my window, along with die cut curtains from a  cardstock that matches perfectly the flowers on the set, then for the roof since I didn’t have any scallop die from MFT, I took the inserts that are left from the windows, cut some more windows colored with distress inks, and wrapped them around a pencil to give the look of a roof tile, they look super cool, I am so happy how this card turned out!

I encourage you to take a look , if you haven’t already, on the cards participating on this contest they are all AMAZING !!!!

Big hugs to all and please believe in yourself, I believe in you!

Hello,

To start the week I would like to share a very quick card I made with the So Suzy Stamp of the month for September, besides the time of drying the texture paste the rest of the card took less than 15 minutes, and I didn’t need a lot of supplies, isn’t that great!

Most of the materials I used are on the following picture ( for the paper, I used Fabriano watercolor paper for the blending and Neenah Solar white for the outside)

Start doing a basic blending of the two distress inks (cracked pistachio and peacock feathers) on the fabriano watercolor paper, I tried to let the cracked pistachio more in the center where I knew I wanted my fish.

After I was happy with my blending I took my stencil and applied the texture paste.

While the texture paste was still wet I added glitter, I love the glitter on the texture paste 😀
Then just diecut a panel and added my corals from the So Suzy Stamp of the month with watermelon pigment ink from ColorBox, you can let the pigment ink dry or apply clear embossing powder to speed up the process.

After that I ensemble both panel adhering my top panel with foam tape. To finish it up I added my die cut sentiment and voila!!!

Hi,

Sharing today the stamp of the Month for September on So Suzy Stamps, this was a super fun card to make, as you can see I can’t get enough of the Nuvo drops, I would like to put these spooky eyes around all the house, lol !

For this fun card, I used the following materials

To make my card, I started placing my stencil and blending the following colors of distress inks. (please note I did another card on my instructions exactly with the same process :), you can see on this one I inverted the colors on my background )img_0853

When it was dry (you can use you heat gun to dry I), I used my perfect medium pen to write the Spooky sentiment and emboss it with gold glitter embossing powder from paper Source.

After my sentiment was embossed I stamped my spooky trees with the stamp of the month from So Suzy stamps

Now the fun part comes, making these spooky eyes with Nuvo drops, first place a dot of the yellow Nuvo, you can shape them anyway you want (you can use a toothpick to help if something goes out of place 🙂 ), then add your black dot on the middle, have fun with it, you can make any type of eyes you like.

Look at the amazing dimension these have

I adore these spooky eyes, the only problem is that they are really addictive, I am warning you once you start you cannot stop 😀
