Valentine's Card

Long time no see!!!
It's been a long time since my last's been a tough year for me and
unfortunately , my passion for paper had to take a back seat :(
Nothing better than start with a Valentine's card!
With all the pop-ups , die cuts and glittery hearts I deserve!

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!


Quanto tempo nao?
Foi um ano bem puxado aqui pra' mim e tive que deixar meu hobby de lado :(
Mas, espero poder agora dedicar mais tempo para os meus papeis e postar mais tambem.
A comecar por um cartao de Valentine's Day.
Valentine's (14/fevereiro) e' o dia dos namorados aqui na Inglaterra.

Com todo gliter que temos direito!

Feliz Valentines!!

Woo-hoo! Card

Hi my friends!
I'm here to post my third card of the week.
This one was super fun to make and is my kind of thing!
Love-love-love paper piecing those cute Lawn Fawn critters.
I tried to make it clean and simple by not adding too many images 
and just a simple sentiment.
And boy oh boy do I like this shade of blue!

Ola colegas crafteiras e crafteiros!
Hoje estou postando o meu terceiro cartao da semana.
Amei fazer este aqui pois tem tudo do que mais gosto,
paper-piecing (usar varios papeis decorados para fazer o colorido dos carimbos)
Tentei com muito esforco faze-lo clean and simple
colocando somente algumas imagens e um sentimento bem simples.
Gente, voces acham que eu gosto deste tom de azul??

Materials used:
Stamps from Lawn Fawn

Be The Star That You Are Meant To Be Card

Hello Crafty Friends!
Enjoying the long weekend?
Here's my card.
A masculine one this time.
Used the ink blowing technique....easy and effective!
Just a drop of ink and a straw to create a design by blowing the ink to the direction you want.
The sentiment was heat-embossed in black on to a strip of vellum paper.

Ola pessoal!!
Estamos aqui aproveitando este feriadao de Maio!
E aqi esta' o meu cartao....desta vez um masculino pra' variar.
Usei a metodo da tinta e do canudinho....muito facil e o efeito e' muito legal!
Apenas pingue uma gota de tinta no papel e com um canudinho 
voce assopra a tinta na direcao desejada,
criando assim um design interessante.
O sentimento foi carimbado com estampagem a quente (heat- embossing) numa tira de papel vegetal.

 All the stars were  heat-embossed in white on to a dark blue cardstock.

Materials Used:
Stamps from PTI
Cardstocks from Studio Calico Card Kit
Inks by Stampin'up

I Thought of You...Card

I'm here with my second card of the week!
This was so much fun to make...
Creating a little scenery on my cards is my favourite thing to do!!
Isn't this little birdie adorable?
The picture doesn't show really well but, 
I have spritzed some grey ink on the "moon" to give it some colour.

Oi gente!
Estou aqui com o meu segundo cartao da semana.
Adorei fazer este aqui...gosto muito de criar cenarios nos meus cartoes.
Acho que e' a coisa que mais gosto de fazer com as minhas criacoes.
Voces nao acham esse passarinho a coisa mais fofa?
A foto nao mostra muito bem mas,
eu esborrifei tinta cinza na 'lua' para dar uma cor a ela.

 The card picture shows a bright blue, but in real life it's more of a green-blue.
All the blues and greys were pretty much based on the Mood Board by WPlus9 Challenge.

It was very sunny this morning when I was taking the pics....

Materials Used:
Stamps from WPlus9, Lawn Fawn
Dies from Sizzix
Inks from Rangers
Spritzer from Stampin'Up
Markers from Stampin'Up
Patterned Papers and Cardstocks from SSS Card Kit
