Hoy no les voy a mostrar ninguna de mis tarjetas.  Quiero compartir con ustedes el porque mi esposo es incapaz de criticar mi pasión por los papeles.  Aquí les muestro su mundo, el cuarto de el esta justo al lado del mío.  Por lo que solemos pasar horas cada cual en lo suyo… pero en compañía y compartiendo pues cada cual se interesa por las actividades  y gustos del otro.  

Que disfruten del tour!!


I don’t have any card to show today today.  Instead, I want to share with you my DH playground.  This is the reason why he doesn’t complaint about how much I spend in papers and stamps LOL!  He knows better!!  His room is just besides mine, so we spend hours in our rooms but keeping each other company.

Enjoy the tour!!

Sus Carros (Son 16 en total!!) / His cars... a total of 16!!

Las áreas de trabajo / His working areas:

Area de almacenamiento y piezas de reemplazo  / Storage and spare parts area:

Sus trofeos / His awards:

Ahora me voy a dedicar a recoger mi taller pues necesito trabajar en las tarjetas de las próximas semanas para el DT.  Espero que tengan un buen día!!

And now I will start Cleaning my Studio since I have to start working on the DT cards for the next weeks.  Have a great day!!

Que Dios las bendiga y muchas felicidades!!

God bless you!!  Happy 2012 ;)

Hey everyone! Welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! This week we want to see your Stripes!

This week Sponsors:

The Craft’s Meow Winner’s Choice of 1 Stamp Set

For this wee I used the set Fruity for You from The Cat's Meow.  It has also Pears and great sentiments.  Watch out because I will be posting more cards using this fabulous set.  For today, I have a set of mini cards.  I stamped the image several times in different colors and paper piece them to get a multicolored fruit.

I am hooked with these mini sets and made several of them as Christmas presents for my friends and family.

Hope you have a great day!!!

So glad you could join us once again for a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! This week we want to see Something Old! It could truly be something old, or just a vintage style or image.

Winner’s Choice of 2 Digis

Gecko Galz 
Prize Package: Pack of paper of the winners choice, 4 collage sets of the winners choice, a stamp set of the winners choice, and vintage pearl button pack, vintage lace, and Gecko Galz fibers


Today will be a short post since I am heading for work.  This week I worked with the Digi Winnie from Saturated Canary.  I used an old tree digital stamp as part of the background, can't remember where I got it from.  Sorry for the picture, I don't know why my camera doesn't liked this card and there was no way I could get a good image.

Here is my card:

Hope you have a great day!!

DYSU Challenge #47 Grass

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! We're so glad you've joined us! This week we want to see Grass somewhere on your project!

This week's Sponsors:

Dearie Dolls
Winner’s Choice of 4 Digis 

Love to Stamp 
Winner’s Choice of 1 Little Darlings Rubber Stamp

Stitchy Bear Designs$10 Gift Voucher

I opted for a non holiday card today since I am making tons of those and needed a break.  Instead, I played wit Beate's Telescoping Card Tutorial and Spiffy Scooters stamp set from Paper Smooches.  I also used the SVG set Dawn's Doilly Collection from SVG Cuts to make the mats for the card.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day and take a moment to stop and meditate on the many blessings we receive each day.  I had a great time with my family.  Here is the opened card:

Thanks for the visit, hugs and kisses to you!!!

Today I finally found the other project I made using a Raindrop Echo Designs digital Stamp.  For this project I used one of the stamps in the Inspirational Sentiments set.  This is a hybrid project since the background is a digital paper that I printed with only a portion of the quote.  I also used the stamp to make a digital cut file.

For the background I stamped some doilies with a Maya Road stamp and use some home made glimmer mist to add shine.  On the parts I cut using my Cricut (the flower and two of the words) I used glossy accents to add more dimension.

I really love to find different uses for my digital stamps.  I think they are extremely versatile and with a little imagination you can create something really nice.  I still need to mat this quote and it will be placed on a frame.  Don't worry. I will take a pic of it and share it with you ;)

Before I start cleaning my apartment I want to share a box I made back on April for a Paper Crafts magazine call.  It was rejected but I love it, that's for sure.  To make it I used the Vintage Paper Rosettes SVG Kit from SVG Cuts file.  

I also used the Paper Trey Ink stamp set Tree Trimming Trio with the matching die to cut the tree.  The DP Paper Collection is from Making Memories.  I love the colors and the vintage feeling of these papers!!

For the bow, I used a ribbon from Stampin Up I really love...  My God!  Isn't that a lovely ribbon??  I love how how this bow turned out, just perfect for the box ;)  I also used two pearl trinkets from Maya Road and a wood heart I bought at a local craft store.

You know that I love my projects to be perfectly finished so I cut two stars slightly smaller than the box size, stamped them and cover the inside of the box.  This not only adds a finish touch but gives the box more stability.

Here is the box.

 Thanks for your visit and sweet comments.  Hope you have a great day and I will be back tomorrow with another Christmas project ;)

Off to clean the house yikes!!!
