CAS baby cards with a little puppy.

New baby cards with a little dog digital stamp

Hi there!

today I have a couple of baby cards. By the way, these and many more of my cards (any company, but little by little) are for sale in my store. Some didn't make it yet to the blog, others won't make it ever!

Anyway... for this couple of cards I wanted to use only a couple of digital stamps. I am using one of the dogs for the dog set and the dog bed that comes in the Dog days filler digital stamp set. 

I colored the images with copic markers and add them, with foam tape, to the front of the card. The sentiment is stamped and it is from Fiskars I think. 

And that is all the card. Very easy and fast to make. At some point you will want to make an elaborate card and at some other point you need something cute and fast...this is the one!

I hope you have a great rest of the day! Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,

Patricia

CAS colorful card using Elephant with ball


Hello!

What do you think about this colorful card that Kel made! I love it! I think her coloring is so pretty and the background paper with the colors of the ball are perfect. 

She is using Elephant with ball digital stamp. I loved making this stamp although my son said it looked like a dog (?). I mean...I am still learning but I think it really looks like an elephant haha. 

I hope you like the inspiration I bring you today!

Hugs,

The end of the summer. Mermaid card.

Card using mermaid staring at the moon digital stamp

Hello!!

I hope you are having a great day! Today I have another beautiful card made by Fabiola. She has a very different style of what I usually show you here. 

For this fantastic card she is using Mermaid staring at the moon digital stamp. I guess she decided that the little mermaid is just enjoying the sunset. I love how she color it! 

The details of the embellishments and the sentiment made with the die is perfect for the card. 

If you want to know more details about this card, visit her blog :).

Card with flap showcasing Little red riding hood digital stamp

Card using little red riding hood digital stamp

Hi everyone!

today I have another beautiful project made by Céline. She made an outstanding job showcasing the stamp called Little Red Riding Hood. I love her color combination and her beautiful papers and dies. 

One of the things that surprised me was the way this card opens. She made a flap at the top and she decorated the inside of the card with beautiful papers and die cuts. 



She colored the image with Copic markers.

Card for a new home

card featuring houses in a tree digital stamp

Holaaaa!

I hope you had a great weekend! 

I am going to start the inspiration this week with this cute card that Monika made. I love the sentiment because it doesn't explicitly say it is for a new home, which is maybe what you might be thinking. 

The digital stamp that she is using is Houses on a tree. As usual, she colored with colored pencils. You can find more details in her blog.

Have a great rest of the day!

Hugs,

Patricia

Embossed card with letterpressed letters.

hugs card using dog digital stamp

Hello!

Today I have a card that I made. It is for sale here. Sometimes I make backgrounds and I just leave them. I try to use them for one card I have in mind, then it doesn't work and put it with other backgrounds in a pile of "maybe for another card". Then sometimes I think, I am going to use the background, and make the card around it. 

This time, I am using an embossed circular background but the tag...oh the tag...it has more work that you can imagine. I hope I can make a video sometime showing how I did it. Well, I will have to make a video, because I didn't make one while I did this one haha. 

Anyway, I cut the sentiment several times with my old Cricut machine. I glued the parts together and in a piece of cardstock. I added to the letters white glue and let it dry. Then I added letterpress ink to the letters and use my Sizzix to letterpress the letters into the cardstock. It really works well, but it doesn't show much in the photo. The thing is, that if you try to do it with regular ink it doesn't work too well. I don't think I try pigment ink though...

As I said... I will try to make a video one day...

Well, an then the images are digital stamps from different sets. The dog is from the dog set (great title!) and the balloon is for the birthday filler set (my inspiration for naming my stamps doesn't have limits, haha). I colored them with Inktense pencils and glue them to the card. 

And that is it! It is funny that I made this card in just a few minutes since I had all the pieces already ready. Sometimes experiments do work (even if at that moment you think they don't) so try to use everything you make :). 

I hope you have a great rest of the day!

Hugs,

Patricia

Little superhero

card using superhero boy digital stamp by kindacutebypatricia

Hello!

Today I have this card that Melissa made using Superhero boy digital stamp.

I love how she made the background. She uses this technique with alcohol inks and makes wonderful backgrounds. I never made one so I don't know the specifics. I think she told me that you need a special paper for it. 

She colored the image with Copic markers.

Hello!

Today I have a card that I gave to a friend for her birthday. She plays the violin so this was the perfect image.

Ballerina encouragement card.

Handmade card using Ballerina clear stamp by Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Hello!! 

Today I have a card that you probably already saw in my social media a while ago. Since I stop updating my other blog, I am kind of behind on things. 

This card was made using the Ballerina clear stamp from my store. It has sentiments in English and Spanish. Very good for crafty bilingual people :). 

I made the background using a cloud stencil I made with a piece of plastic and distress inks in pink and purple. The stamp was colored with Copic markers but, as of this moment, I don't have the colors. I don't remember if I misplaced them or I just didn't write them. Sorry about that. 

I added some pearls for embellishment.

I hope you like the card and you have a wonderful day!!

Hugs,

Patricia

Hello blue shaker card with a llama

Shaker card using llama digital stamp set


Hello!!

Last month I had a huge new release with digital stamps in the store. In this card I am using one of the llamas from the Llama digital stamp set. I had a lot of fun doing this card too.

I made this shaker card using a window die. The sentiment is glued inside the shaker. 

For the background I printed one of my digital papers called Easter pastels. I love that I can use them even if it is not Easter, since it has papers with dots and chevron lines too. 

I hope you liked the card. Enjoy your day!

Hugs,

Patricia

Cute CAS card using baby and balloon stamp

Handmade card using baby and balloon stamp

Hello!!

Today I have this cute card that my new DT member Ellenor made using Baby with balloon.

I love her style very much, having following her through Instagram for quite a while. I wouldn't like if I say that I would love to make this kind of cards. She usually makes CAS cards with very soft and almost no embellishments or dies. Still...gorgeous, and this one is the same.

I love how she made the image inside a frame and make the little backgournd with the grass. 

For more inspiration, visit her blog. 

Have a great rest of the day!

Sending hugs using girl and bear.

sending hugs card with a girl and a bear by kindacutebypatricia

Hello!

I am back again but this time with one of my cards. I colored this cute clear stamp with Copic markers (colors below). The clear stamp is called Girl and bear and it comes with sentiments in English and Spanish.

The background is embossed with an embossing plate from Fiskars. I don't know if they make them anymore, they are quite old, I don't think there were embossing folders by the time they made this. 

The sentiment is stamped in bubble gum ink by Hero arts and the polka dot paper is from my digital paper set called Easter pastels

What was new in August?

Hello everyone!

I am back this month with the new releases that I had in August. It is very complicated for me to do a new release once in a month since I do so many different things and...this is only me doing it. I am the one who illustrate and make the digital stamps, I make quite a few handmade projects, I design all digital papers (and more things that are about to come) and all Zazzle products. I have to post everything on the shop and take care that it looks good (or as good as I can do it haha). I record, edit and post all the YouTube videos. I write all these blog posts, newsletters and have my social media to take care of too (not very successfully lately). I do this while I take care of everyone and everything around my home. I think I have done pretty well things considered haha. I didn't got crazy yet (I think).

So... here it is what I managed to get out last month in my stores. I think it is a lot. I don't know how I managed to do it, to be honest. Don't expect to see that much for September though, I think this was kind of "extraordinary". 

New Digital stamps

I made a lot of new sets of digital stamps. Little critters and fillers. What are fillers? well, all the complements that you would need to use with the critters or other digital stamps. Fillers is a good way to get different images with the same theme, perfect for cards, scrapbooking and planners! don't forget the planners!!

New Handmade Cards

Also, I added some of my handmade cards for sale at a great price. Most of them are made for my blog or Instagram. Others were just tests of images and techniques and I didn't even published them anywhere. All my cards are between $2 to $4. If you click in an image it will take you to the product page. Shipping is by weight, so you can actually buy several things and save in shipping.
































New in Zazzle

To finish today, I wanted to share some of my new designs in my Zazzle store. I am filling it little by little with more designs. There are almost 200 products already! Instead of showing you everything I made, I will post the collections where I added new products. Click and visit the collection to see everything!

And I think that was all! It almost took me more time to write this post than to make everything else, haha. I hope you like how I am doing and if you have any suggestions let me know. I know the cream puff doesn't look like a cream puff...working on it! haha.

Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for visiting!
