Love and Hugs

Hello everyone! We are already in the second half of February and I didn't even noticed! Time is flying lately, seriously, which is maybe good cause that means Spring will be here real soon! I don't know about you but I'm so ready for warmer and sunnier weather :). And well, this card definitely screams Spring, don't you think?

¡Hola a todos! Ya estamos en la segunda quincena de febrero y ni me había dado cuenta. El tiempo vuela últimamente y a lo mejor eso es bueno ¡porque así la primavera va a llegar en seguida! No sé vosotros, pero no puedo esperar a que los días sean más largos y soleados :). Y bueno, esta tarjeta está gritando primavera por los cuatro costados ¿no os parece?

This is a quick and easy card using the embossing resist technique. I first stamped and heat embossed the amazing bouquet from the stamp set "Beautiful Flowers" by Simon Says Stamp on a longer piece of cardstock (8 1/4" by 3 7/8") to make sure the whole samp could fit. Then I added color with Distress Oxide inks and a Blender Brush. For the sentiment I used the same stamp set and heat embossed it on black cardstock. Lastly I added a few sequins and that was it!

Esta es una tarjeta muy fácil de hacer usando la técnica "resist". Primero he estampado y embosado las flores del set de sellos "Beautiful Flowers" de Simon Says Stamp en un trozo de cartulina más largo (21 x 10cm) para asegurarme de que todo el buqué cabía dentro. Después le he dado color a la cartulina usando tintas Distress Oxide y un cepillo mezclador. Para el sentimiento he usado el mismo set de sellos y lo he embosado sobre cartulina negra. Por último he añadido unas cuantas lentejuelas ¡y listo!

Hope you liked it! Thanks a lot for stopping by and see you next time!

¡Espero que os haya gustado! Muchísimas gracias por la visita y ¡nos vemos pronto!

  1. Amanda, I love your card, it is beautiful!
    Its funny that you used this stamp today and spoke about spring and warmer weather...(I am ready for that too!) The funny part about it, is that I just ordered this stamp on Sun. We are going to Cuba in Apr. so I wanted to stamp off a bunch of panels using this stamp to take with me to water colour while in the (much longed for) sun! haha
    So glad to still see this beautiful stamp being used.
