MARBLED FLOWERS

Marbled flowers, or better, marbled paper is the project that I have to share with you today. I made this using one of the new flowers from So Suzy Stamps, I used the Olesya Bloom and I have to confess that these flowers have me crazy! Take a look at my card: I made this card using two different techniques, the marbled background and the masking technique. To create the background I used a piece of Whisper White card stock, but to obtain these amazing colors I mixed a small amount of shaving cream with a few drops of Fireworks. Yes, this is...

IMAGINE STAMP SET FROM SKIPPING STONES

Imagine Stamp Set from Skipping Stones is one of my favorites and I decided to use it for my today’s card. It is a CAS model but I love this combination of colors and style. Take a look at my card: The base of my card is Whisper White card stock and I created an inked or masking area using post it. I used classic ink and not distress inks as usual to have other option of colors. I used Melon Mambo, Rich Razzeberry and Elegant Eggplant and applied the ink with a sponge to obtain a perfect blending of colors. Then in a separate piece of...

GREAT SOLUTIONS FOR SMALL ROOMS

Hello dear crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you my organization experience. My atelier or craft room is very small and as usual I have a lot of things that “I need to have” or  use to create my paper crafts but because I have problems remembering where I put things, I love to have them visible to don’t forget them or duplicate. After experimenting with many things and looking around a lot I found on Deflecto Craft Great Solutions for my Small Room! I have a lot of small bottles with glimmers, inks, paints and...

ACRYLIC FRAME ON MY WAY

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to show you a project that I made using a 4″x6″ Purple Deflecto Craft Frame. If you know me you know that I love to work with frames and a few months ago I created an Herbal Acrylic Frame and I received a lot of messages and comments asking me about this project. I made this using die cuts and the wonderful Rinea Double Sided paper foil. You can see this project HERE. Today I have a similar concept but using a stencil with embossing paste. Take a look at today’s Craft Frame: Maybe you...

This is the reason why I decided to...

YOU + ME LOVE HERO ARTS

YOU + ME Love Hero Arts, is the card that I have to share with you today. This month the a2z Challenge has as theme Sentiments and I found YOU + ME to be the perfect sentiment and inspiration to create. Take a look at my card: To create this card I used Pool Party card stock for the base, Whisper White card stock for the second layer and a die cut frame. Yes, the second layer was originally white but I transformed this using the ink pad Ombre Pool to Navy and applying the ink from up to bottom directly with the ink pad. This process is know...

SHADOW STAMPING CARD

SHADOW STAMPING CARD

Layering stamps are very popular but you don’t always have to use them in the same way. You can use these to create different looks and today I am sharing one of this possibilities, the shadow stamping with different inks. Using  VersaMark ink, stamp the outline image over a piece of card stock randomly. Cover the stamped images with Gold Embossing Powder, remove the excess and melt the powder with the heat tool. Then using StazOn Azure, stamp one of the corresponding layers over the embossed images . I chose the Azure color because...

If you notice on my card, the small butterflies have only...
