One little piggy went for ice-cream

CAS card using pig eating ice cream digital stamp

Hello!

I hope you are not having too much cold where you live already. Here is chilly, haha. But for today's card I bring you a summer card that Melissa made a while ago. 

She is using Pig eating icecream digital stamp. She colored it her Copic marker and made a gorgeous background. I love the pig soft colors against the dark blue background. It reminds me to the sea.

I hope you like the card and the color chart. Feel free to pin it for future reference. 

I decided to keep this blog as a "photo blog". I will be adding the photos but only with the links to the proper sources. I am sorry... I am so busy I can't keep up with everything!!

Have a great rest of the day!

Amor de hermanos

card with siblings with puppy clear stamp by Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Hi there,

I hope you are having a great day. Today I have a card using the clear stamp called Siblings with puppy. I colored it with Copic markers and I used a stencil to make the yellow lines. 

I made the stencil myself using the a die cutting machine and a starburst pattern. It is amazing all the things you can do if you have a machine like that. And mine is old...like very old...

Anyway, I used the sentiment in Spanish this time but you can find it in English too in the set. 

Have a fantastic rest of the day!

Hugs,

Patricia

Cute and fun Halloween card with a ghost

handmade Halloween card using girl and ghost digital stamp

Hello!

I continue with some of the latest Halloween cards that I have made. This time I am using the digital stamp called Girl and Ghost. I love this digital stamp. It was just a doodle one day that I didn't know what to draw and ended up as a digi and one of the most loved for Halloween. 

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markes. Imagine how long ago I colored this digital stamp that I used Spectrum Noir markers.


I cut the image using a die and added to the panel. I just used a scrap of patterned paper that I had around. As many crafters, I can't toss paper, I always think that I can use it for something. Well, this is the prove that I can do it, haha.

I hope you like the card. 

Hugs,

Patricia

Have a great rest of the day!

Christmas card using Santa Claus Sketch digital stamp

Christmas card using Santa Claus Sketch

Hi there!

Another Christmas card before ending the month. In case you are already starting making yours I give you some inspiration.

This cute shaker card was made by Melissa. I love how she made the shaker with buttons. So cute! And with Christmasy colors!

She colored the digital stamp called Santa Claus sketch with Copic markers. I love how she made the bag blue and added some shiny in the white parts of his suit. 

I hope you like the card and have a great rest of the day!

Enjoy the little things

handmade card with a cat and a duck

Hello!

I am back with another card from Fikreta. She is using two different images this time for the card. 

She is using Little duck, that you can find digital here and clear here, and Little cat, that you can find it in digital and clear too. 

I love how she designed the card and made the clouds. They are very pretty. The little cat looking at the duck is adorable.

Don't forget to go to her blog for more details about this card. 

Hugs,

Patricia.

Thank you mini card with a little mouse

thank you mini card with a mouse

Hi there!

Today I have a card but it is so small. I love making mini cards. They are very useful to little thank you notes for my orders or for the kid's lunch boxes. 

For this mini card (it measures 2.5x2.5 inches folded) I used white cardstock. The scallop square was made with a punch (yes, I sometimes forget I have punches), using one of the digital papers that you can find in my store. The mice belongs to the Mice digital stamp set and it was colored with distress inks. You can find the same set as a clear stamp here. It comes with sentiments in English and Spanish. 

And that is the mini card. I am sure I will be making more soon. The cards are so small and I like making CAS cards so much that I don't think they will be much different from this one but, if I make a new one, I will show it to you.

Hugs,

Patricia

Penguin by the fire in a winter card


Hi there!

She is using some digital papers from my store too, called Bright Christmas . She did a great job combining the digital stamp with the papers and the silver snowflake.

Bats and witches

Happy Halloween card with a witch.

Hello again!

Since it is going to be Halloween I keep posting Halloween cards! 

This card was made by me. I colored the Witch clear stamp using Copic markers and glued it to the front panel with foam tape. I love using foam tape, besides, the one I have is great. I think it is super thick but still gets to destination without to add extra postage. 

The background is just a white cardstock with some stamped bats in grey ink. The bats are a rubber stamp from Recollections I think. I think they are super cute. I don't really use them much unless they are for backgrounds. 

Then I glued the white panel with the bats to the purple base and that was it, basically. 

I hope you like the card I have today!

Hugs, 

Patricia

Hanging out with mummies



Hello!

Today I have this awesome card that Waleska made as guest designer. She will be designing a couple of more projects this month that I will show you as soon as I can. 

She is using the digital stamp called Mummy boy. I never thought of coloring his face on green but it looks perfect! The smooth blended background and the detail of the die cuts are gorgeous with the card. 

If you want more details about this card, visit her blog. I love the card and I love how she took the photo! So spooky!

Have a great rest of the day!

Bee loved...

love card using bees digital stamp

Hello!

Today I have another card that Fikreta made during her guest designing in September. She made this love card using Honey bee digital stamp. She used the same digital stamp for the two bees but just flip it to have different versions of it.

I like very much how she colored the bees and how she made the background. The patterned paper is very beautiful and the honeycomb die cut is perfect for the occasion.

For more details, visit her blog.

Thinking of you card with a dog

thinking of you card with a little dog

Hi!!

Another of my cards today! This time I am using one of the dogs from the Dog digital stamp set. I colored with Copic markers and fuzzy cut it. I glued it with foam tape so it is raised from the card.

The purple frame is from one of the Easter Pastel digital papers. The file is pink but I changed the settings of my printer and it printed purple. I think it is cute. 

The sentiment says Thinking of you and it is from the Girl at the Window clear stamp. The sentiment is in Spanish too, but I wanted to have it in English (obviously).

I hope you like the card. Check my handmade cards for sale here

Have a great day!

Snowman and Friends, a Christmas card

I know that Christmas is kind of far in the calendar still but I have this one that Monika made last year and I never posted. 

She is using Snowman and friends digital stamp. One of the cutest snowman I have in the store. 

I love the design she made. The patterned papers are very pretty and she used the same color pattern to color the image. The detail of the shiny snow is perfect!

Card for frog lovers

CAS card using frog digital stamp

Hello!

Today I have another cute card by Melissa. I think this is one of the digital stamps that change a lot when colored, and she did a great job.

She is using Frog digital stamp and she colored with Copic markers.

I love her coloring but also her design. The simple design using the right papers makes the frog to look like it is about to jump.

Happy halloween with a mummy digital stamp

Halloween card with a cute mummy digital stamp

Hi!

today I have a card that I made. You probably won't believe that I colored this image a very (very) long time ago. Maybe a year ago. Anyway, I finally put it in a card!! 

I am using the digital stamp called Mummy boy. I had a lot of fun drawing this image becasue of the roll of tissue paper. I thought it was a fun end to the image. I hope you like it too. If you want a cute and easy to color Halloween digital stamp, this can be a perfect choice. It doesn't have much to color!

For the background I used an splatter of watercolor. A few days ago I posted another Hallowen card and it was the same background. I like making the same background sometimes. It saves me time and since I change the image, each card is different. 

I hope you liked the inspiration for today!  I will be back tomorrow with a non halloweeny card that Melissa made.

Hugs,

Patricia

Cute otter card

Cute CAS card using an otter digital stamp by Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Hi!!

I hope you liked the inspiration I bring you today. I love drawing this little otter but I didn't have time to color or make any project with it. Thanks to my great DT, I can get to see my stamps colored and displayed. 

This cute card was made by Kel using the Otter digital stamp. She did a great job coloring it and I love how she made the card. The front panel was cut with a die and then glued in a beautiful blue panel. I love the detail of the colorful sequins and the sentiment is just perfect to go with the image!

Cute halloween card with a superhero dog

Halloween card with a super hero dog by Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Hello!!!

So this month is Halloween uh? I hope you are getting ready for it. I have to admit that it is one of my favorite holidays. However, I have to make my kids costumes and it take a while until they decide what they want to be. 

Anyway...for this card I am using two different sets of digital stamps. The Dog set and the Halloween filler. What I did was to print everything separately (I printed so many dogs and fillers) so the sizes were perfect. I could have just done it all together but I liked the look of "clear stamp" set. 

I colored with my Copic markers and I added the sentiment stamping it with blank ink. I don't remember the brand of the stamp, sorry. 

The background is just a watercolor splatter of purple and orange. 

I hope you like today's card. Enjoy your day!

Hugs,

Patricia

Gift bag using Bear with cup.

Gift bag using bear with cup


Hello!

Today I have the second project that Fikreta made last month as a guest designer for September. I love this super cute project. I am so use to make cards (because I think it is faster and I don't have much free time anymore), that I forget that you can do all sort of things with stamps. 

In this case she made this adorable gift bag. She is using Bear with cup digital stamp. I love her coloring and color combination. The dots in the scarf are a great add on.

When you move the tag to see the sentiment it gets better ;). The sentiment is my kind of sentiment. Chocolate!!

I hope you like the project that Fikreta made. Visit her blog for more!
