Cool Friends

Hi how are you? Hope you are having a great Friday with your family or Shopping!!!
I finally could made a card... I miss it so much, but with the holidays it is so hard to find time to sit and make my cards :(
This one is for the Lawnscaping Challenge "Give Thanks"

I used so many different Lawn Fawn Stamp Sets:
Making Frosty Friends 
Joy in the Woods for the background
Frosty Fairy Friends 

Making scene cards is so much fun!!! You first start with an idea, and then you start building your scene little by little with different elements... It was so much fun.... yesterday when I was purchasing from Lawn Fawn I realized I almost have all the stamp sets.... Oh no don't tell my husband shhhh!!!
Have a great weekend!!

Love and Hugs

My Style

If I can describe my Style I would say It is Colorful, Clever, Funny and Cute.

Cute but Scary Zombie

Hello my Crafty Friends!!! Today I want to share a card I made for my Halloween Card Series with one of my favorite finds: Craftin Desert Divas Stitches Digital Stamp... and a Tutorial on how to get this Zombie look for your cards.

What you will need: 
Craftin Desert Divas Stitches Digital Stamp
Distress Inks in colors:
Walnut Stain
Pumice Stone
Blueprint Sketch
Black Soot
Lawn Fawn Hills Die
White Gel Pen
Shimmer Mist
Eyeshadow Applicator
Prismacolor Markers

First you need to color your image, I used Prismacolor Markers and I did a basic coloring.  You will also need to hand cut the entire image.

You are going to use an eyeshadow applicator to color the edges of your image with  Walnut Stain Distress Ink to give it the Zombie, kind of dirty look.

You will get something like this! Really spooky and already looking like a real zombie! Ha

For the background I used the Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink on the edges and also Black Soot Distress Ink to give this card a night look, you have to leave the center of the card white for the moon light.

Finally you start assembly your scene with all the elements, I used a white gel pen to draw some stars in the background.

And here is your cute but scary at the same time Zombies! hahaha
Hope you find this helpful to create a scene using digital images.  Your should go check out the Craftin Desert Divas Store to find more amazing Digital stamps, plus they cost only 0.99!!!!
 I now, love digital images there is so much you can do with them!

Have an amazing day!

Halloween with Sunny Studio Stamps

OCTOBER!!! one of my favorite months.... today I want to share 3 cards I  made with my newest  addiction Sunny Studio Stamps.... their stamps are so great, and now... I want them all.   For these cards I used the same stamp set called Halloween Cuties, and let me tell you, their stamp sets are so much fun, their images are adorable and I was very inspired by my october card series theme which is of course "HALLOWEEN" if you haven't seen it check it out at my instagram CRAFTINGLOVEW

1. For this one I used some digital fall trees I found in the Sunny Studio blog they have many different kinds of trees and they are FREE... find them here: look for the Free Digital downloads
 this ones were perfect with my scene for the background I used Distress Inks in colors:
Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed
for the Hill I used Distress ink:
Mowed Lawn
I don't know why but I like to hand-cut all my images (I know those trees look painful) but they look great so it was totally worth the pain!!!

2. For this card I used Distress Inks in colors:
Wilted Violet and Mowed Lawn
*I don´t use copic markers for the coloring I used Prismacolor Premier

3. This 3rd one was so much fun to do... This web is actually a corner web, but I made it a full web by stamping it repeatedly.   For all of them I used the same Distress Inks color combinations.   I would like to say my complete favorite for Halloween...
Wilted Violet
Carved Pumpkin
Twisted Citron
I am so excited Sunny Studio Stamps is so kind and actually share my cards in their blog for inspiration, definitely this cardmaking world is really unexpected and kind.

Hope you can find inspiration on my cards and thanks to all of you that say some amazing things about my cards on instagram or take the time to say encouraging things to me in my blog thanks from the bottom of my halloweeny heart.....hahaha

Zombie Piggie

This starting week I want to share the next tag for my Halloween series
 "From Delightful to Frightful"
This next spookie piggie is the zombie one!

Let me show you how you can turn this cute piggie into this zombie piggie

I use the Hog Heaven stamp set from MFT, the little tombs from the Spooktacular Lawn Fawn Set
 and a Spellbinder die called Graveyard Scenes
Let's see how to turn this cutie to that frightful zombie

The first thing I did was the eye... I did a bigger eye and put some scars on the face,
 and with a fine pen draw his torn shirt.
After that I used two different shades of green:
 with the lighter green color the hole piggie and put some little points
 in different sizes to make the skin zombie looking

For the background I use Distress Inks in colors Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed

And here It is the Piggie Zombie ready to go hunting for some bloooood!!

Hope you like it, have a wonderful day thanks for visiting my blog!
If you think someone you know will like this tutorial please share!

Scared Doggie

Hello my Crafty Friends and everyone that visits my blog and will be my friend!!!
This weeks are realy complicated for me because my son is having his finals and WE have sooo much to study.... He is 8 years old.... Oh well there is also so much happening this amazing month it is my hubby's Birthday and HALLOWEEN is coming soon!!!  But I am trying among all the chaos to keep myself sane doing some crafting and of course halloween cards!!!
Go visit my instagram where I will be sharing everyday a new halloween card

This one is my entry for the current Lawnscaping Challenge It is basically inspired on a Autumn pinterest board with a lot of leafs, oranges and browns and I came up with this funny card!!

Poor doggie... look at his face he is so scared while the ghosts are having so much fun!!!

I use the following Lawn Fawn Stamps:

The Ghosts and Moon of the Spooktacular set
The doggie from Critters at the Dog Park
The branches and leaves from Jump for Joy
The Ghosts faces are from Rooting for you 

Distress Inks:

Carved Pumpkin
Spiced Marmalade
Walnut Stain

The original doggie is so happy... let me show you how I change it:

You can always mask only the part where you don't want the ink to be or do like I do I use my Lawn Fawn shammy to take of the part where I don't want the ink to be and with a black pen (a fine one)
I draw the new face...

Tad Ahhh from happy to scared!!

Booya Stamp Set elements.... To make some EGGcelent Vampires!! hahaha

I made a little tutorial to show you how I create the background

1. I diecut a circle mask for the moon

2. You put your mask where you want your moon to be placed in the card

3. Next, you start blending with squeezed lemonade distress ink, only around the circle mask to make kind of a halo.

4. After that you start blending around the edge of the card with chipped sapphire first, leaving in the center some white spots

6. Put also some black soot distress ink on the edges to make the look of a more dramatic night.....

7.  Remove very carefully the mask and blend in the center of the moon some squeezed lemonade to make a brilliant moon 

Here is you Spooky night sky..... have an amazing day...
Hope you find this helpful...
