My Lucky Charm - LF March inspiration week

Hello!!

It's the end of Lawn Fawn March inspiration week  but we will be back on April with another one and April is just artound the corner ;)

The star of the shw today is My Lucky Charm, a stamp set with all kinds of lucky charms with their coordinating dies :)

For my first project I made a tag using Maneki Neko (the lucky cat) and I tried a classic Japanese look with the distressed edges, the speckled cardstock and the cat stamped on it with just a bit of coloring. Well, I don't know if I achieved that look or not, but that was my inspiration :)

As a finishing touch I added some twine and a pair of jingle bells, that I thought match the cat theme nicely. I hope you like it!

My second project is a bright card with a background full of lucky charms (and some friendly chicks hee hee) and just a circle with an old sentiment that I find perfect for this new set.

Lucky

I added a vellum circle behind the sentiment circle to soften the busy background around the sentiment.

Stuck on You - Lawn Fawn march inspiration week

Howdy!

I hope you're enjoying the Lawn Fawn inspiration week! Today we're sharing our creations using Stuck On You, a cute cactus-themed medium stamp set and coordinating dies.

I love this set because it lets you make two very different kind of cards. You can go with the cactus and flowers and make super pretty card or you can use them for a fun western scene.

I picked the second choice this time and created two scenes with the instagram frame from #awesome and my distress inks and pristamcolor pencils.
Then I added a desert snake dressed like a sheriff to finish off the card. And I can tell you that I had a lot of fun making this card. I enjoyed every bit of the process and I love that!

Cupcakes & Pint Sized Patterns - LF March inspiration week

Hello!!

Lawn Fawn inspiration week continues with the DT featuring products from the new release and I have 2 projects to share with you today.

First I used the new Scalloped Cupcake Wrappers and Bon Voyage stamp set to decorate some cupcakes. You can imagine my excitement when I saw Lawn Fawn was making these cupcake dies, I love baking so these are the perfect touch for an extra cute homemade cupcakes!

Party plane cupcakes

I heat embossed the clouds on the wrappers with white embossing powder on some new Pint Sized Patterns Beachside paper (I LOVE these paper with stars!!) and then quick colored the inside of the clouds with white Distress paint. I love it because it gives a translucent look to the clouds and it dries quickly :)

Party plane cupcakes - single

Then I colored the planes with copics and cut them with the coordinating dies. Also, I adhered a trail made with some twine. I wanted to do this since I saw Elena's heart trails on her Sending Love party. I'm such a fan of Elena's partys! Obviously hers are much more pro and pretty but I loved the idea and wanted to use it on my cupcakes too :)

My next project uses the new paper line too: Pint Sized Patterns Beachside. And because the colors (and name!) reminded me of sailing, sea, beach, etc. I grabbed my Critters in the Sea stamps and coordinating dies and created a scene with some paper piecing.

Under the sea

It's easy and simple but I love how the colors pop on the dark background. I added some white sequins in different sizes like they were bubbles to add some shine. And, of course, some twine, I love the sweet touch of some twine on a card (but I'm sure you've already noticed that hee hee).

Under the sea - close

Year Five - Lawn Fawn March inspiration week

Hi there!

This is my second post today, if you're here for the Crafty Friendship blog hop post (and ou don't want to miss it), click here or just scroll down, thanks :)

Another Lawn Fawn inspiration week starts today, yay!! It's my favorite time of the month! Today we're featuring Year Five, awwwww THAT otter!!! It's one of my favorites from this release (and all time!)

I love otters, they're so so cute!! One of my favorite things is how they hold hands so they don't loose each other while floating. So I had to make this card. And I think the punny sentiment is just perfect for it.
I made this card with my boyfriend in mind and I give it to him with a little gift just because. He was very surprised and loved everything and that is my favorite thing about making cards, when I can give them and surprise and make smile someone :)

YearFive_CristinaNuñez1

I stamped the otter twice but I removed the ink from one of the arms of the second otter and draw it myself so they were "holding hands".
I stamped the custom sentiment with Smitty's ABCs combined with the otterly included in the original sentiment, I love combining fonts!

YearFive_CristinaNuñez2

You can see more cards using this super cute mini set at the Lawn Fawn blog, the DT has amazing samples!! Kelly has made a video showing it and there's a giveaway too!

Today I'm celebrating crafty friendship with a group of crafty friends with an amazing blog hop

If you're hopping from the sweet and talented Francesca, you're on the right place. If not, and you want to start from the beggining, go to Heidi's blog :)

Esther Rovira from Arcadia de Papel Blog is the special Honoree of this year's blog hop, because her support to many blogs, in Spain, USA, and some other places in the world. 
Also we chose this date because is her blog's anniversary!
And she happens to choose me as the special guest for the blog hop!! I can't tell you how happy and honored it makes me feel :)
Esther is spanish like me and she's very supportive and nice. She always put a smile on my face with her comments.



I want to dedicate this post to all my blog followers, all who take the time to leave those comments that always brighten my day and to all that don't comment but are also there. I'm so thankful for you, for your time and your kind words, for having me in your life.
I don't leave comments as frequently as I would like to do so I really appreciate the people that give their time as gifts supporting others with their comments and love. When Heidi sent me the list of participants in the blog hop I said: Gosh! I already know almost all these girls! And I know them because of their comments on my blog ot flickr and I tell you, I love all of them. They're super talented, sweet and supportive :)

How amazing is this crafty world, it's full of incredible people and I made a lot of friends from all around the world, people that I would never know if Internet would not exist.

So I'm totally in celebrarting crafty friendship, I already have my party hat on! Let's go, here's my card :)

I wanted to keep the card simple with a lot of wite space and a big pop of color. I just love that sentiment, it's from an old set but the font is super pretty, don't you think?
I stamped all the background with soft grey trees and colored the sky only inside the frame.


Friends Forever

I removed the ink from the faces of these two furry friends so they look as you were seeing them from the back. So they are enjoying each other while looking to the horizont into the woods... It's also like a "you color my world" reference :) Yes, I'm loosing my mind lol

Friends Forever - detail
