CASometry Challenge 3: Final Stage


Today I’m sharing my card for the final stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This challenge has been loads of fun!! I’m so happy to have taken part! I want to thank Anna for hosting this challenge and make us stretch our creative muscles 🙂

For the final stage, we had to choose one of the cards we made for the previous stages and use all the stamp sets, dies, stencils and embossing folders for making a new card. It was hard choosing a card, and in the end I selected the one I did for stage 3 using Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart” stamp set.

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. Then, I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” to make the stitching detail on a piece of pattern paper from Lawn Fawn “Perfectly plaid christmas” paper pad. Next, I used a die from Lawn Fawn “Stitched scalloped borders” on a piece of vellum to make a scalloped frame.

I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp the word friend on the piece of vellum using Versafine Onyx black ink, and then stamped the sentiment using the same ink. Next I glued the images to the vellum and then adhered the vellum to the pattern paper. I glued the panel to a card base, and finally I stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card with Memento Lady Bug ink and glued the pizza cutter.

I hope you like this last card for CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer!

Here you have some pictures of the cards I made for all stages:

Stage 1: 1 random stamp set + any geometry shape

Stage 2: 1 random stamp set + using one stamp minimum 3 times

CASometry Challenge 3: Stage 3


Today I’m sharing my card for the third stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This week, besides to use a random stamp set, we had to use embossing.

This time my boyfriend chose a stamp set that I was looking forward to using: Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart”. This stamp set is so versatile and cute and fun to use! I had a great time using it!

First, I stamped the pizzas on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I stamped the ingredients using Memento Bamboo Leaves, Peanut Brittle, Lady Bug, Tuxedo Black and  Rich Cocoa inks. I love the pepperoni rosy cheeks! After that, I fussy cut the images.

Next, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper to a standard A2 size, stamped the ingredients randomly using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I blended Dried Marigold and Tattered Rose Distress inks. After that, I trimmed a stripe of white cardstock and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” and “Stitched scalloped borders” dies. For the sentiment, I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp “amatxu” (that means mammy in basque) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my MISTI to stamp “you’re the greatest!” using Memento Lady Bug ink, and then stamped it again with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Last, I adhered the background panel to a card base, the strip with the sentiment to the background panel, and the happy pizzas to the strip using foam tape.

I loooove this card. It was so much fun to make! I’m going to tell you a secret. Next Sunday is Mother’s Day in Spain, and I made this card for my sister Arantza. She is a wonderful mother to my nephew Telmo, and is always very supportive of me. So I really enjoy making cards for Telmo and for her, because they’re always happy to receive them. I know she probably is going to read this before receiving the card, but I hope she enjoys the card anyway!

I hope you like this card! Thanks for stopping by!

This could be Sakura

Hi everyone!

Today I have a card with a very naughty cat that reminds me of my Sakura. So when I saw this fun stamp from La Vida en Scrap, I immediately thought about making this card.

I stamped the images on Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. The cat is from La Vida en Scrap “Dulce Navidad” stamp set, and the tree and the gifts are from Mama Elephant “Pix’s Happy Holiday” and “Reindeer Games” stamp sets, respectively. I added tons of sparkle to the tinsel with Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter pen, and some less to the ornaments, the star and the tree. For the gifts I also used a gold gel pen.

I looooove the sparkle! And the cat is so cute!!

For the floor I stamped the Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp on Bristol paper using Memento peanut brittle ink. Then I colored over it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and trim it to look like a hardwood floor. For the striped wall I did some masking with Post-it tape and blended Mama Elephant winter pigment ink on watercolor paper. Then I stamped the sentiment (I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” stamp set) with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using gold and WOW Red Glitz embossing powders. I think the sentiment is perfect for this  scene!

I mounted the scene using double sided tape and foam tape. I added a white cardstock stripe between the floor and the wall to make a baseboard and I also made a rug using Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” dies on Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper. Next, I adhered the scene panel to a Canson Mi-Teintes paper panel, and then attached everything to a card base.  Finally, I added some Glossy Accents to the ornaments and to the star.

I think this scene is so fun! I hope you like it too!

All I Want for Christmas is You


Today I have another Christmas card featuring La Vida en Scrap stamps. The stamp I used is from a spring themed stamp set called “Faunia”, but combined with some Lawn Fawn stamps is perfect for a Christmas scene.

I stamped the bow and the mistletoe from Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set on Bristol paper with Memento lady bug ink and with Memento bamboo leaves ink. Then, I stamped the hares with VersaFine onyx black ink on Bristol paper masking the hearts, and masked the hares to stamp the hearts with red ink. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them.

I blended some Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick Distress inks on a watercolor panel with very light hand to get a soft look, and then spritzed it with water to get some texture. I die cut two hills from white cardstock using Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies and spritzed some water mixed with Perfect Pearls for a frosty touch. It can’t be seen on the pictures, but the result is beautiful! When it was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set, masking the “ewe”, and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I stamped the word “you” from Lawn Fawn “Believe in yourself” stamp set and heat embossed it using WOW Red Glitz embossing powder. Next, I die cut some trees using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies and added some shadow to the edges with ShinHan Touch Twin Brush markers.

I mounted the scene using foam tape for the hares and the mistletoe. Finally, I adhered the scene to a card base and added some Wink of Stella to the hearts and the mistletoe.

I love how this turned out. The shimmer on the snow is so pretty! And I think the scene is very sweet 🙂

I hope you like it!

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:

Christmas Cards with La Vida En Scrap


Finally I’ve begun my Christmas cards!! I’m not going to lie, I want to make a ton of them and I’m running out of time. Luckily, the new La Vida En Scrap “Dulce Navidad” stamp set is so beautiful that is very easy to make great Christmas cards with it.

I stamped all the images with VersaFine onyx black ink on Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I added some detail with Sakura white Gelly Roll pen and Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter pen.

I stamped the sentiment Dulce Navidad (Sweet Christmas) with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using WOW Red Glitz embossing powder. I adhered the watercolor panel to some fun foam to give some dimension and then glued that to Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper and to a Canson Mi-Teintes paper panel. Finally I attached everything to a card base and added some Glossy Accents here and there for shiny touch.

I love these cards! They were so much fun to make!! And they are so easy to make that are perfect for mass producing if you are in a hurry.

Aren’t these critters super cute?


I hope you like them.

Have a nice day!
