Sweet Treat Jar

Hi everyone! I have a very short post for today. I just wanted to show you a very humble project for Valentine’s. I’m starting my Valentine’s gifts, and I thought I would recycle some jars! In this case I simply embellished it with lace, ribbon and paper twine and some tags. The goodies I filled the jar with are some yogurt flavored pops and marshmallows.


Materials: 
Heidi Grace Designs – LOVE, Specialty Project Pad
Spellbinders – Classic Labels Four
Stampendous – Spanish Greetings
Memento Dye Ink – Rhubarb Stalk
Ranger Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick
Merletto Diamond Stickers
Merletto Paper Twine in pink
Cre-a 7/8″ pink ribbon
Other generic Materials
5/16″ red ribbon
2″ One sided Lace

This is a cute and fun way to recycle containers. I plan to do some more. Though it’s simple it is a sweet little something to give to a friend on Valentine’s. Hope you enjoyed it!

Daisy inspired / Inspirado en Daisy


Hello everyone.

I’ve been unconsciously or consciously channeling vintage for a while in many aspects of my life: curtains, clothes, hair pieces and of course, cards. This time I felt so very inspired by Daisy, character of the memorable book made movie four times: The Great Gatsby. The 2013 production presented so many wonderful outfits, sceneries, and it goes on… This character and Lana del Rey’s song Young and Beautiful just makes you think of that melancholic and inspirational era of vintage.

Hola a todos.

He estado consciente o inconscientemente canalizando vintage por un tiempo en muchos aspectos de mi vida: cortinas, ropa, adornos de cabello y por supuesto, tarjetas. Esta vez me sentí muy inspirada por Daisy, personaje del memorable libro hecho película cuatro veces: El Gran Gatsby. La producción del 2013 presentó tantos maravillosos vestuarios, escenarios y más… Este personaje y la canción de Lana del Rey Young and Beautiful solo te hace pensar en esa melancólica e inspiradora era de lo antiguo.


If I could only transfer all the ribbon and crystals to a card… jajaja… Ribbon and crystals are the only things I think about as a crafter LOL. So this is one attempt to get this vintage bug out of my system through paper. 
Si tan solo pudiera transferir toda esa cinta y esos cristales a una tarjeta… jajaja… Cinta y cristales son las únicas cosas en las que pienso como artesana LOL. Entonces este es un intento por sacar este bichito vintage de mi sistema a través del papel.

Now merely about card making let me tell you, this time I repeated with all knowledge my last card’s embossing “mistake” over an originally patterned paper. It worked like magic. I really wanted to do something different with this card, it is actually a window card. Let me show you:

Ahora meramente sobre la tarjeta, déjenme decirles que esta vez repetí con todo conocimiento el “error” de relieve de la tarjeta anterior, sobre papel estampado original. Funcionó de maravilla. Realmente quería hacer algo diferente con esta tarjeta, en realidad es una tarjeta “de ventana”. Permítanme mostrarles:


The medallion was die cut from the card base itself and the shape was adhered again in opposite position to the original contour. That sole detail could make a very minimalist elegant card. But I went on… The light brown ribbon I had planned to go through the main pearlescent layer, now was connected underneath the medallion window.

El medallón fue cortado de la propia base y la forma fue adherida nuevamente en posición opuesta al contorno original. Ese solo detalle podría hacer una tarjeta minimalista elegante. Pero continué… La cinta café claro que planeé fuera a través de la capa de papel aperlado, ahora fue conectada por entre la ventana de medallón.
