Rainbows and Sunshine

Hello CDD Friends I hope you enjoyed the last release! Waleska here with a very fun project for you! with the cute little umbrellas from the Rainbows and Sunshine set! 

For this project I did a lot of paper piecing and hand cutting which I love doing! I wanted to have all the umbrellas in different colors so I stamped the different umbrellas in beautiful Doodlebug cardstock to give the umbrellas different patterns, after that I cut only the umbrellas and color with markers some details of them.  I stamped the umbrellas all over the front part of the card and glue the pieces, I added sequins in different colors and use the same doodlebugs paper for the card base!  I felt the front part of the card had a lot so I stamped the sentiment in the inside of the card.


This is another way you can use the paper scraps you have around! I hope you give this idea a try!!

Graduation Congrats/Oxide Inks with Desert Storm Cardstock/Oxide Inks

Hello Friends and Welcome to another inspiration card for the Always Fun Challenge blog!!! The theme for this week is "Graduation"and I went for a non traditional Graduation card with a Congrats sentiment.

CARD DETAILS: For the card today I used Nina Desert Storm Cardstock and a stencil I made with my Silhouette Cameo.  Since I have been obsessed with Oxide Inks I use them for a very colorful card in colors Broken China, Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick for the sentiment I did an inlay technique I learned with the always Fabulous Laura Bassen... I stack 5 congrats dies to create the dimension and added clear sequins.  


I hope you can join us on the Always Fun Challenges blog... there you can find inspiration every Monday for the different Challenges and have fun with us!

Hope you have a great day!


Hooray.. You Did It!/Graduation Card

Hello Friends and Welcome to another inspiration card for the Always Fun Challenge blog!!! The theme for this week is "Graduation"and I went for a male graduation card with a very fun Sentiment.


I noticed that since I tried Oxide Inks they are my go to inks for blending, because they blend so effortless, beautifully and the effects they make.   I blended Oxide ink colors Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans and add some flicks of water with my distress sprayer. I die cut my blended piece with one of my new Gina Marie dies which I love.  The cute bear is from the Page Huggers from Mama Elephant,  this set has so many accesories, you can use this cute critters for many occasions, this kind of  sets are a MUST have because there are many uses for them!

Hello Everyone thank you so much for stopping by for another Challenge at the Always Fun Challenges Blog, Today's challenge is anything goes so you can participate with any of your creations.   My card today is totally sweet... Lawn Fawn is Amazing at creating very sweet images to make us go Crazy about their stamps.


For this card I used my favorite combination of Oxide Inks Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet and Broken China I wanted to create the illusion of bubbles with the color but I think I used to much Violet.  I die cut different sizes of circles to fit the cute elephants and mouse and to fill the white space in the card I stamped the little cake and heart from the set in the same oxide ink colors. With Black Versafine I stamp the Wish Big sentiment. I love the vibrant colors you get with oxide inks

Dream Big

Hello Craftin Desert Divas Fans! Waleska here to share with
you a very Dreamy card! with my favorite little girl!
And two complementary colors that look great together.

For this one I used the Inside Scalloped Circle dies in different
sizes to create some focal points in my card and color the 
outside part of the circle with a red marker and the inside part 
with Merman ink.   I color the sheep and clouds with a grey
 marker to give kind of a fluffy feel!  I added some touches of 
Stickles to the girl pijamas and added sequins in two 
different colors.

I hope you can be inspired to use complementary colors in 
your cards, you can use a Color Wheel for that!

The beautiful inspiration has some light colors
that inspire me to create this card!

I did some smooshing on the card base with colors

Crafts and Tumbled Glass distress ink.
I used the flower from Thankful by Julie with
gold embossing powder on lilac and light blue cardstock
I finally die cut the Beyoutiful sentiment and added 
some touches here and there of gold embossing powder.

Dry Embossing Technique

Hello Friends this week at the Always Fun Challenges
the theme is "Dry Embossing"

Awesome Jennifer Mcguire Link to her video
"Dry embossing with Die Cuts"

I used a very old Spellbinder Die cut for the technique
and added a little color with blue sparkle washi tape and
a stripe of green cardstock
The stamp sets are from My Favorite Things:
Penguins in Paradise
Label Maker Sentiments.

Nautical Cards

Hello Friends!! I have been very Nautical this days with the
new Sunny Studio Stamps release with lots of Pirates,
Mermaids and Sea animals! Today I wanted to share a set
of 3 cards I made inspired on a card I made for my sweet 
daughter Leah and of course I needed to make one for my
boy Ian too.... if not I get in trouble!!!

All this cards are 7.5 x 4.25 inches.
For the first card I used the Pirate Pals stamp set with the word
AHOY that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo, my idea was to 
create a little scene inside the "O", for the background I did 
some dark blue stripes... I added the sentiment
 "You Are a Treasure". (This was for my boy)

For my next card I used the Magical Mermaids and I wanted to 
create the feel of  the mermaids peeking on the Ship windows... 
for more details on this card you can visit the 
where I show how to create the woodgrain background.

For my last card I wanted to create a night scene with the 
Pirate Pals on the beach, I created the background with
Oxide inks in colors Faded Jeans and Broken China.

This set was so much fun to make!
I have to admit that I love this new Sunny Studio release!

Love Puffin

Hello Friends!! a couple of weeks ago I won a $50 prize
at the ClassRoom at Ellen Hutson blog and with 
that prize I bought this cutie!!! it is a small set from Avery Elle

My card today is for the Challenge #5
For a Female/Mum at Always Fun Challenges

To tell you the truth I did not know what this animal 
was... so of course I googled it... and they are the
cutest little animals ( I totally thought they were not
real)   hahaha

I used Distress Oxide inks for the background in colors
Peeled Paint and Broken China, and to tell you the truth
I am anxiously awaiting for more oxide ink colors,
they blend so well I just looooove them!

For the rest of the scene I added some little elements from
the set! The tree trunk is a die you can find at the 
Craftin Desert Divas Shop it is called "Scene Builder Dies"

I added clear embossing powder to the puffins and the
tree trunk and they look awesome, if you want to get a 
more realistic look!

I love this little set! totally worth it!
