Truly Scrumptious Challenge

For this challenge I decided to make a boyish card. The theme is altered flower, but I thought would be too girlie to put a flower on the card, so I decided to use a smiley sun to symbolize "my altered flower". I guess the weather yesterday inspired me... :)

Stamp:Greeting Farm
Sun and Clouds: Cricut Hello Kitty and embossed with Cuttebug
Coloring: Copics
Paper and embelishments: Got it at Joann's

Have all a great week! xoxo, Milla :)

Door Hanger

Beautiful day in Miami sunny sky!

One of the projects I always wanted to make was a door hanger for my craft room. Then one of these days, I was shopping for materials (as always and usual..) and I found a plain wood hanger at Michaels for $1!!! And this pink hanger came out of that! Do something fun today whatever part of the world you are...xoxo, Milla :)

Stampavie Challenge #6 - Flowers

Finally Friday!
I have not been posting here lately but every single day I check what it is going on in the "card making world" to have some inspirations. It is great to see crafters participating in different types of challenges and to see the ones that create the challenges how creative they are!
Flowers are a great theme, because I love flowers and it is a perfect match for Sarah Kay stamps, since they are so romantic and girlie... During this week I made this card for the Stampavie Challenge #6 . I used my favorite Sarah Kay stamp. For the printed flowers I used Cricut and embossed it with Cuttlebug Swiss dots. The others embellishments are just regular ones you can find at Joann or Michaels (ribbon, velum, flowers). Punch Martha Stewart and coloring with Copics. One thing that I first tried in this card was sponging around the stamp. I loved the effect! I guess this was one more thing I just learned...;0). The videos and tutorials from others blogs are helping me a lot and I really appreciate all the experienced ones who share their little "secrets" with beginners like me. Thanks for stopping by today... Hope you like my flower card! xoxo, Milla :)

SAV Challenge #5 - A sketch for you

I am getting addicted to the challenges!!It is sooooo much fun just to participate and enjoy others people creativity around the world!
This one was a difficult one for me since I did not have any tool to cut the corners perfect round. After many try outs I gave up and decide it to make it square... I hope it will still be valid! Papers, flowers and gems I got at Joann except the stamp which is Rachelle Anne Miller. Coloring with Copics and use Cricut "walk in my garden" cartridge for the sentiment. Cats are my favorites pets! Hope you like it! xoxo, Milla :)
