Happy Sparrow for Amy

From one kind comment I came to Sarah’s blog (Sarah’s Paper Tray), and found a beautiful surprise: her 8 years old daughter, Amy, made this sketch…

Sarah made a challenge with it and I couldn’t help falling in love with the idea.
So, today I’ve been working on this card for Amy’s sketch.

This is my 3D pick of the card:

And these are some close ups for the main characters…

Simplicity (II)

And here is my second (and best) attempt in the K.I.S.S. Challenge on Pals Papers Arts:

  • Clean with lots of 'white' space
  • Simple Designs
  • Minimum time to create
  • Limited layers and embellishments

(The first card I made for this challenge was so easy and simple that I had time for a second one today.)

Simplicity (I)

There is an interesting challenge in Pals Paper Arts: the K.I.S.S Challenge (Keep It Simple, Sweetie!):

  • Clean with lots of 'white' space
  • Simple Designs
  • Minimum time to create
  • Limited layers and embellishments

In other words, simplicity. Just what I love!

Here is my first attempt (I made one more):

Red and Green for Christmas

Finally I made some red and green card for Christmas.
It was fun to work with the sketch 40 of 2 Sketches 4 you ... The idea came out smoothly and, although it was laborious, at all times was a pleasure.

I was trying of recreate the flower pattern of the green paper in the red cardboard with glitter.

This is the original sketch from the designer Kazan.

Not easy but shiny...

This is my card based in Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 45.

A little close up to show you how shining is this origami paper...

And this is the original Sketch... (It looks easy, but it wasn't!)

Rudolph doesn't know...

...what to do with all those presents!!

As I didn't be completly happy with my first attempt on Unscripted Sketch 32, I made a second card different at all... and now I'm happy!!! I enjoy to make this card from the simple idea 'til the end.

Here you have a Rudolph's glittering close up...

And, to top off, this card observe two challenges: the Unscripted Sketches 32 and the always beautiful colors from Lucy's first Challenge.

Now, tell me... Isn't my Rudolph cute???

and more glitter...

Today I’ve been working in a card based on the sketch # 32 provided by Unscripted Sketch for the currently week. Doesn’t feel very well about it, but… here it is! How do you like it?

(I’m experimenting with the glitter’n tape technique that I learned from The Goddess of Stamp.)

Here is the original sketch...

Magic Glitter!

As you can see, I love glitter!
On this card I used a lot. Made several lines of glitter in the patterned paper, in the tree and even in that dotted tag… For the glitter frame around the tree, I used the glitter’n tape technique that Tresa Black recently explained in this video.

This card is based on Crazy for Challenge Sketch # 12.

Hope you like it!

Loving challenges

The site Everything but the Kitchen Sink is just starting with challenges and their first one is this simple and lovely sketch:

I’ve been really busy on scrapbooking and card making the last days and this sketch came to tell me what to do with all the beautiful rest of patterned papers I’m leaving behind… This is my work on it.

Three circles and an ornament for Christmas

I’m enjoying very much this kind of virtual challenges. Truly inspiring!
Today’s card is for the sketch challenge # 42 from Card Patterns.

I don't know why my camera doesn't take the real colors. In this card, the background is aqua, and the outer circles and the central ornament are dark pink (no red). Believe me, it looks much better "in person".

I could not resist the charm of colors...

...And here is my second try on Lucy’s Challenge, using the same papers and materials that I used in the first one. What do you think?
