Happy Halloween card


Well, it's shocking, I know. I made a card. I made a couple more and it was really nice to get back into the crafting world. This card is very spooky! ;) I saw the 6X6 American Crafts paper pad at Target and decided to purchase and make some cards, real cute. The bat, I cut out on my own, and I'm glad it turned out well. Hope you like :)

Colorful Flowers card



Why hello there! It's been a while since my last post. If you happen to stumble through my blog by accident - Hi! My name is Claudia and I used to be a regular blogger, it's a rarity these days, life happens! I came back to share a simple but colorful card I made using a flowers stamp by SU!. I colored it with my Copics marker and stamped on black ink. I've been experimenting with Photoshop to edit my pics but it seems I have a LOT of learning to do. For the most part, I can't figure out the software :S err.. shucks! Anyhoot, I do hope you are doing well and you are more than welcome to leave me a comment. 

Take care,
C :)

Happy Birthday



Hello peeps,

I had a chance to make some cards this weekend, although this card I made a couple weeks ago when I finally put together my craft area in my new home. I'll let you know that I gave away of LOT of stuff, I didn't want to bring into our new home lots of crafts I managed to hoard and never used. I was happy that all the craft supplies/materials went to a local hispanic church that has a sunday school craft time for kids :)

Anyhoot, the card - I made using the PTI hexagon die for part of the background. I really like the die and coupled with the dual patterned paper, I think this birthday card came out well! The patterned paper is from Crate Paper. I hope you like the card too!

Take care,
Clouds :)

wonderful bday card - Poppy Sketches #1


Hello peeps,

I have a card to share today using Poppy Sketches #1 challenge. If you followed my blog or knew of my blog a while back, you'd have known that I was a 2S4U DT member and was very excited to know Laura was back at it again. Here's my rendition of the sketch challenge, and I used Crate Paper (oh Darling) paper collection. I really kept the card simple and tried to adhere to the sketch as much as I could. Let me know what you think, and do stop by the NEW Poppy Sketches blog to join in on the fun!

*PS: since Flickr is no longer hosting sharing capabilities with Blogger - I can't link my Flickr posts directly, please note card supplies info below. Also, sorry about the picture quality, we moved to a new home and I'm experimenting with the lighting when I photograph my cards.

card supplies: Crate Paper (Oh Darling) paper collection, Studio Calico wood veneers, Martha Stewart score board, Hero Arts (black) ink, PTI sentiment stamp.

Take care,
C

hello peeps,

A birthday card here today! Let me start off by saying that this card is inspired by no other than Ms. Wida Miller (Beachorado). I received new stamps sets this week and was eager to try them out. I quickly channeled Wida's style - when I think of Wida's card, there are stamped backgrounds, die cutting, layering and lots of colors. I think I did well huh? I really wanted to use the hexagon background and I ran it through the die cutting machine once and it didn't cut all the way, well, I made it work anyways! I'm very happy with the end results :) Do click on the pic for list of supplies. Do let me know what you think!

Take care,
Clouds :)

Rosie Posie - Mother's Day card

Hello peeps,

I hope you are having a wonderful wkend so far, I am. Here's another Mother's Day card that I made this past week. I got brand new stamp sets from Papertrey Ink (Rose Posie) and a few others specifically for mother's day. I have a goal for making tons of 'em and sharing it with co-workers, another way of keeping the creative thoughts flowing. What do you think? Do you like? I hope you do. The set is really fun to work it and here's why, the layers of colors on the roses and leaves really does add an effect to the card and I luv the results. Anyhoot - are you making Mother's Day cards?

Take care,
Clouds :)
