Design Team: As sweet as Honey

Hello, this is my DT-project for Connie Can Crop,

Wow, I can't believe that it's been a week already since I posted this project at Connie's blog:

For this post, I decided to use a card base from this months sponsor: The Cutting Cafe,  Card Fold w/curved sides, some CTMH, Brushed printed cardstocks, and some dazzles from my stash. I paper-pieced cardstock bellow the dazzles to add som color:

Here a pick of the inside:

I decided to color the cardstocks bellow the dazzles instead of paper piecing them. I hope you enjoy this simple card and leave me some love ;-)

And don't forget to enter this month's challenge:

Eureka Stamps Challenge #190 Add Some Bling

Sellos Eureka  Desafío tema de esta semana es 

Añadir un poco de Bling

Cuando vi el tema de esta semana para este desafío i rápidamente pensé en esta imagen de San Antonio de sellos Eureka:
e impreso en tamaño 8x11 y 5x7 en los papeles de acuarela. Sólo la imagen perfecta para celebrar San Antonio Fiesta de la semana pasada:

Para estos tapices que utilicé para el primer proyecto de un 11x14 "artista tabla de madera y para el segundo y Aschland (Michaels) caja de sombra de madera y pintado las pinturas acrílicas de color azul o azul claro con base en cualquiera de neón después de cebar la superficie con Gesso.
Una vez seco, añadí un poco de pasta de modelar y galerías de símbolos similares a los diseños mayas. y dejar secar.

Para la bandera metálica y elementos de fiesta (centros de rosetas de papel), he usado un poco de papel de aluminio (CTMH) y Staz-On entintado de algunas imágenes "Cinco de Mayo" de la diversión Stamper Journey y utilizando las matrices coordinadas, que muera a cortar el imágenes y colores ellos utilizando shapies en colores brillantes.
Este es un proyecto de reciclaje perfecta para aquellas tapas de papel aluminio ... o incluso rasgos del horno.

También utilicé algunos sellos acrílicos alas de papel de las banderas "papel picado":
Aquí mirar más de cerca a los elementos de papel de aluminio de colores:

Entonces, he utilizado algunas tintas de socorro y cerrar de stella de acuarela de las imágenes previamente impresas, utilizando la técnica de Tim watercoloring Holzt. Para finalizar los colores brillantes, he añadido algunos acentos utilizando marcadores de brillo y metálicos. y dejarlos secar.

Entonces, volví a los marcos y añadí algunas de estampado (banners brillantes y cofetti) y la colocación de letreros (elementos de fondo de la caja de sombra azul / rosa) con el signo contrario.   Para el confeti, añadí algunas plumas de perlas Decoración viva dimensionales. 

Aquí un vistazo a los elementos por etapas antes de pegar cualquier cosa:
Me ha preparado el sombrero mexicano con yeso y pintado con pintura acrílica de color amarillo para cubrir algunas palabras que realmente no le gustaba para este proyecto (de recuerdos de San Antonio).

El sombrero terminado y algo de amarillo de la flor del maíz mexicano-salir, un poco de flor bling, y casera usando una flor rosada punzón EK-éxito.

Compré algunos chiles de arcilla en el local de "Mercadito" y los añadió a la hoja de "papel picado" de la bandera:

Para el marco más grande utilicé un sombrero de paja me encontré con un pasillo de la manía ...

Esta bandera del marco sin los chiles ...

Los Rossettes de papel estaban hechos de algunos 1 "tiras largas de algunos trozos de papel.

Realmente espero que les guste esta fiesta marcos conmemorativos.

Durante la próxima semana, voy a publicar algunos mayores proyectos Eureka sellos del desafío que hice, pero no he podido publicar aún.

Tener un fin de semana maravilloso,


Ahora, me gustaría entrar en este divertido retos:

Todo vale:

Muéstranos tu metálica: Desechos de papel de aluminio

La primavera está en el aire: ¿qué mejor para mostrar los tonos de primavera que Fiesta

Eureka Stamps Challenge #188 Sketch

Good Morning dear Scrappers,

Time for a new challenge at Eureka Stamps:

Their Challenge theme this week is 


For this challenge, I decided to continue in my religious trek and use the digital stamps:

and for the inside:

 For this image, which I had printed on watercoloring paper on my laser printer,  I decided to use some Tim Holtz watercolering techniques, but using the Wink of Stella markers:red, gold and green. The blue is a TH distressing markers though. For the white part, I did used a wink of Stella clear glitter pen, however it did not photograph that well.

 I used the negative cut from my previous project here to mount my fuzzy cut cross. I used the oval from the reverse of the honey comb paper from MME.
I used some popdots to mount the oval on my card based, which I had already covered with the 3 strips of Paper scource gold foil tape.

I used a tag die to cut my sentiment printed on colonial white paper (CTMH) and added some dazzles I had from my stash to cover the doodle flowers from this digital stamp (also from Eureka stamps).

For the inside sentiment, I used the same paper and dazzles to blend to the rest of the card.

I really love this Numbers' sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my CAS card and decide to join on this fun challenge for a chance to win these adorable images.

Have a wonderful and very blessed week,

 For the sentiment and bees, I used some of my stash's cartridges (Birthday Bash) and added some stickles to the front bee cheeks.

 The star comes from a Paper source ribbon, I just bought in Boston while visiting.

For this project, I decided to make a pop-up card using one of the cutting cafe files and another for the flowerpot and grass for the inside:

Some closer looks:

I used my cricut explorer to cut the card and to write the sentiment on the front, however I had a little misshapen (when not ;-)
My cricut marker was dried up from not using it ;-) and I had to use a micron marker to write on top of the soft writing. LOL, I ended using my handwriting, I never do LOL
I used the micron marker also for adding some fun movement to the bees, which came from an sticker pack, I think I bought at a Dollar Tree store LOL. Handy uh...

 I used the blush paper pack from CTMH for the inside and some CTMH white and honey cardstock as well for the card bases. I used some CTMH foam popdots.

This was in general a fun project to do. I used as inspiration an sketch by  Share the Joy Challenge:

However, this challenge just passed, but ours will be up for a month ;-)

I hope you enjoy this project and leave me some love,
Have wonderful week,
