July Paper Pumpkin Kit

I love the July Paper Pumpkin kit! The banners you can create using the pieces are adorable, but sometimes it’s fun to change things up a bit. Using this month’s kit, I’ve created some alternate samples.


The first project is a fun way to use one of the banners that comes with the kit. If you were to throw a birthday party and wanted your present to match the cake, you could make it happen—since you get two different banners and pennants in the kit!


I made this card using the background stamps that come with the kit. I love how versatile the stamps are. Since they are just background stamps, I’ll be able to use them over and over again on all sorts of projects. It’s such an easy way to add texture!
If you’ve made alternate samples with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit I’d love to see them! Put your links in the comments below. Or, if you have the chance to use your banners and pennants at a party, I’d love to see pictures of those, too!

In Christ alone...

In Christ alone will I glory....I am redeemed.
Have you ever consider that there is absolutely nothing we can truly boast about? Without Christ we have nothing. I am thankful for His grace. He saw me and didn't pass me by. He saw me and loved me, aproved of me and granted me His pardon. I have no idea where I would be without Him and His perfect love that sustains me today. Think about it. Grace. Grace holds me. Grace holds you. Only grace holds creation. It is all by grace.

In times when all is in boxes Im learning to be still and know He is my God. His grace is enough. Just wanted to share my heart with you today.
En Cristo solamente me gloriare...en El soy redimida. Has considerado alguna vez que no hay absolutamente nada en lo que podamos gloriarnos? Sin Jesus no tenemos nada. Estoy agradecida por Su gracia. El me vio y no paso de largo. El me vio, me amo y me otorgo perdon. No tengo idea donde estaria sin El, sin Su amor perfecto que me sostiene. Piensa. Gracia. La gracia me sostiene. La gracia te sostiene. La gracia sostiene a toda la creacion. Todo es por gracia.
 
En momentos en que tanto esta en cajas estoy aprendiendo que puedo estar quieta y conocer que El es Dios. Su gracia es suficiente para mi. Queria compartir contigo mi corazon.

I was inspired by the picture below to make this card for a dear friend a while ago.
My technique was heat embossing in white and black.
Stamp sets: Mixed Bunch (flower), Happy Day (doily), Trust God (sentiment

La foto de arriba me inspiro a hacer esta tarjetita para una amiga muy querida.
Use la tecnica de repujado en calor en blanco y negro.
Los sellos que use: Mixed Bunch (flor), Happy Day (doily), Confia en Dios (viene en espanol)
 
 
I need to share this with you. Someone may need a reminder. It is NOT by works that we are accepted in the Beloved, it is all by grace. You are loved and cherish by God always...always.
Necesitaba compartir esto con alguien. Tal vez necesitas un recordatorio. No es por obras que somos aceptados en el Amado, es todo por Su gracia. Eres amada y celebrada por Dios siempre...siempre.
 
 
Creative Blessings, Bendiciones Creativas,

Simple beauty...

Hello my dear readers,
Just peeking in to share a sweet simple card made with the Big Shot and that new embossing folder that coordinates with Wildflower Meadows stamp set. I thought for fun I could use it without the stamped image. :) Is a simple card...but it will mean much to someone soon.
 
I am honestly drained and trying to find the right time to open my SU boxes. For the moment I am working in getting back to a normal schedule with a hubby and three kids in a 3 bedroom apartment in the midst of beautiful PA. Im liking this city so far.
 
I hope to inspire you gently...I am not in a rush to get creative, I know when I feel refreshed I'l take where I left it again. There is so much going on in this amazing company in one week you would not believe it! New products,  My Paper Pumpkin promotion for newcomers, new products (oh wait, I already said that lol!) and new MDS download. Gee! I wonder if I'm missing any of the free ones.
Yeap! Life is full right now. But I love staying in touch.
 

 
What are YOU creating so far? Are you in a new techniques mood, scrapbooking, sewing??!!
Leave me a quick comment below. Can't wait to hear from you!

Hi my dear friends!
Yay! I made it safe to PA and thank God all is good so far. I still have to do and fold MY laundry, get MY luggage emptied and MY few boxes. Isn't it interesting how I was able to empty everyone else's bags, do everyone else's laundry and have their rooms all ready to go before mine. Huh?! Yes, I am an interesting species called: a mom. :)
Oh my! Did you know it's officially a week since all my Stampin'Up! stuff (except for 3 1/4" boxes, hehe!) was sent to a storage. And the ones I have are STILL CLOSED!
That is bad...very bad! :P

Well...My Paper Pumpkin....I made my samples BEFORE I closed my boxes so let me share with my last entry for My Pumpkin Challenge. Have you link yet? You can link more than once and even have the opportunity to win a $15 Giveaway in SU products. Check out July's challenge: Add a pop of color and have fun creating! Click MY PUMPKIN CHALLENGE

 
Forgive my brief post...life is moving so fast right now! Have a wonderful week...Il be back asap!
Love you all....in unpacking mode and trying to get all ready to start my homeschooling year next week (yeap...all at the same tiem). Believe me Il be back! You know MEEE!

Hello everyone...ready for a challenge?! Hope you are cause this is a fun one and I so want to try it again. Hola a todas! Estan listas para un reto?! Espero que si porques este es super chulo y ya lo quiero volver a intentar. ;)
Water Stamping is the technique shown this next two weeks at:
La tecnica de estampar con agua es la tecnica de estas dos semanas en:
 
My twist? Instead of following the usual way (which you will see explained at the Technique Twist blog), I sponged Gumball Green Ink on a piece Midnight Muse CS. My results are subtle but I ended up liking it. BUT you MUST see what the other awesome Designers for this challenge made. Hop over to the blog, you will love this!
Mi cambio? En vez de seguir la forma usual (explicada en el blog de Tecnique Twist), yo esponje tinta Gumball Green (verde) en un pedazo de papel azul Midnight Muse. Los resultados fueron suaves pero me gusto. MAS TIENE que darse la vueltita por el blog para que vea lo que las otras disenadoras hicieron, me encanta!
 
What do I like about this challenge? Que que me gusta de este reto?
It reminds me how much fun stamping is. I enjoy this creative outlet, learn new techniques and then have the opportunity to add my twist to it. Yay!! Come on! Join in the fun and cler the mind a bit...you will love the results.
Me recuerda lo divertido que es estampar. Disfruto esta manera de arte visual, aprendo nuevas tecnicas y tengo la oportunidad de anadir mi propio cambio. Yey! Unase al reto y diviertase un poco, despeje la mente...le encnataran los resultados!
 
 
WATER STAMPING TECHNIQUE:
 
1. Sponged Dark Ink on Light Colored Cardstock
(Remember my twist was actually 'dark on dark', but this is better.)
1. Esponje tinta oscura en cartulina clara
(Recuerde que mi cambio fue usar tinta oscura en cartulina oscura, mas esto es mejor)
 
 
 
2. Now put a bit of water on a  plate/tray and place a paper towel on it.
2. Ahora ponge un poco de aguita en una bandejita y un papel toalla.
 
 
3. "Ink" your stamp of choice (linear one preferable instead of bold) on the Paper Towel
3. "Estampe" su sello en el papel toalla (lineal es preferible).
4. Stamp the water on your sponged/brayer cardstock.
4. Y ahora estame en el papel.
 
Tan-tan! That's it! Simple simple! Try it first sponging on light colored CS!
Tan-tan! Simple simple! Tratelo primero en cartulina clara!
 
 
 
More pictures! Mas fotitos!

My Daydream Medallions Birthday Card

 
Good morning my dear friends!
Here in the midst of so many changes but grateful for the blessings I have received. One of those blessings is my sweet friends. A few weeks ago I had the best birthday party ever with my best friends. I had time to chat, stamp and eat cake with some amazing women and today I want to show you one of the precious cards I got that day.
Buenos dias mis amigas!
Aqui en medio de muchisimos cambios mas bien agradecida por todas las bendiciones recibidas. Una de esas bendiciones son mis dulces amigas. Hace unas semanas atras tuve la mejor fiesta de cumpleanos con mis mejores amigas. Tuve tiempito de conversar, estampar y comer bizcocho (pastel) con unas mujeres maravillosas y hoy les quiero compartir una de las tarjetitas que ese dia recibi.

Daydream Medallions stamp set and Floral Frames Framelits
 
Thanks my dear Cindy for being here, for loving me and for sharing this beauty with me. You know well I will keep it forever and ever. First because YOU made it, second because is awesome pretty beautiful lovely and it has bling. Lol!
Gracias mi querida Cindy por estar ahi, por amarme y por compartir esta belleza conmigo. Sabes bien que la guardare por siempre y siempre. Primero porque la hiciste TU y segundo porque esta bella, preciosa hermosa y tiene brillo. Jaja!
 
If you were able to see well Cindy placed a bit of that Silver Glimmer Paper behind the Vintage Designer button so we are able to see the bling through it. Clever eh!? Hope you get inspired by my wonderful friend today and get creative to bless others with your talent. I am blessed indeed. Oh, and wait till I show you the gift she made me...Oh my! No pics yet but I WILL :)
Si pudo ver mi amiga Cindy puso un pedacito de ese papel bello de escarcha plateada detras del botoncito Vintage. Asi el brillito se ve por medio del boton. Nitido, eh?! Espero sea hoy inspirada por mi amiga maravillosa y crees algo lindo para bendecir a otros. Soy bien bendecida de verdad. Ah y espere a que le ensene el regalo que me hizo...Ay si..aun no tengo fotos pero ya prontito! ;)

Just a couple of challenges before I...

...move. Yeap! Is true Im moving. I won't be a Texan girl any more. The East is waiting for me. Ha! I tend to live with this crazy idea that creation is waiting (groaning really) impatiently waiting for the manifestation of YOU and ME! So very soon...Il get to move all my stuff, ink refills and my beautiful fmily with me to dance on the East. BUT before I do that, please let me play a bit. :)

...antes que me mueva un par de retos. Si es cierto ya pronto dejare de ser una 'tejana' para irme al este que me llama. Yo vivo con la idea de que la creacion espera ansiosamente por que TU y YO nos manifestemos. Asi que bien prontito...me muevo con todos mis cachivaches y mi bella familia para el este. Mas antes de...quise jugar con unos retos. Dejenme jugarrr! :)


I followed the sketch at RetroSketches Challenge.
Take a peek at their awesome inspiration...I love this challenge.
Segui el esquema del reto en RetroSketches.
Vea las bellezas que crearon yendo a ese blog...me gusta mucho este reto.
 
 
HandStampedSentiments Challenge inspired me to try this color combination and
 I'm well pleased with the results. :)
Handstampedsentiments me inspiro a tratar esta combinacion de colores.
Me gustaron los resultados. :)

Thanks for stopping by! It was fun to stop and create something new to relax and meditate on all the good things I have in my life. Im in the midst of 'chaos' organizing all my crafts stuff for the move.
Gracias por pasar por aqui! Fue bonito detenerme a crear alguito nuevo y relajarme un poquito y meditar en todas las bendiciones que tengo. Estoy en medio del 'caos' organizando mi cosas de manualidades antes de la movida. :0)

Truly Grateful for today




Happy 4th my dear friends,
Today I simply reflect in how blessed we are (I am) to live in the USA, to be part of this nation (thou not born in the continental US), truly grateful for the opportunities I've found here. I am really blessed. So I stop to meditate, give thanks to God for His immesurable grace and for the freedom we have in Him. Enjoy life, do what is good and seek God. Without Him there is no peace and without peace there is no power.

Enjoy my July 4th card... not a traditional one for sure, but bringing reflection to our hearts today.
See another sample and quick picture tutorial on my previous post HERE!


Feliz 4 de julio a todas mis amigas aca en los Estados,
Es un dia hermoso para reflexionar y dar gracias por todo lo que hemos recibido. Vivir en los EU es una bendicion y la libertad que gozamos un privilegio dado por Dios a esta nacion. Vivo agradecida y hoy simplemente me detengo a dar gracias y disfrutar la vida plena que he recibido. Hacer el bien, vivir a plenmitud y buscar a Dios. Sin El no hay paz y sin paz no hay poder.
 
Mi tarjetita del 4 de julio no es tradicional...mas trae reflexion al corazon.
Vea otra tarjeta con esta tecnica y un tutorial con fotos en mi post anterior AQUI!
 
The technique I used is the one shown at Technique Twist Challenge this week. Give it a try, is simple but the results are so much fun. On my twist today I did my Rolled Quartz technique on sandpaper (of all things), instead of the traditional Window Sheet. Another Twist was NOT using White Ink refill, I only used Island Indigo and fine glimmer. My CS is Bermuda Bay.
La tecnica que use es la que se muestra en el reto de Technique Twist esta semana. Vaya a intentarla, es simple mas los resultados son tremendos. En mi cambio de hoy (mi 'twist') hice la tecnica Rolled Quartz en papel de lijar (sandpaper), en vez de en la tradicional transparencia. Otro cambio que hice fue no usar la tinta blanca, solo la azul color Island Indigo y escarcha fina en dorado. My Cartulina es Bermuda Bay.

Stamp set: Trust God/Confia en Dios
Big Shot and Apothecary Labels Framelits used to cut the opening.
Visit Technique Twist today...you will love the creativity of these awesome Designers.
Visite Technique Twist hoy...le va a encantar la creatividad de las Disenadoras.
 
 
 
I linked my sample today at Less is More Challenge. The key word is "SAND" and my colors turned out great to remind me of the beach. Thanks for your constant inspiration! Il be playing more often after I move. :P

Thanks for stopping by and many blessings!
Gracias por visitarme y muchas bendiciones!

Hello my dear ones! I wanted to share with you a simple page I made yesterday while thinking of my children. I really enjoyed playing with My Digital Studio. It's so easy and versatile. Love love love it for my scrapbooking and for the days when Im not in the mood to make a mess. Lol!

Hola mis queridas amigas! Les queria ensenar una paginita sencilla que hice ayer mientras pensaba en mis chiquillos. Realmente disfruto jugar con Mi Estudio Digital o MDS. Es tan facil y versatil. Me fasciiina para hacer mi scrapbooking y para los dias que no deseo hacer regueros mientras creo algo bonito. :)

Theses two week in MDS Monday Challenge is about grouping photos.
Estas dos semanitas en el reto MDS Monday estan jugando con agrupar fotos.

I love when I can just follow a sketch and get inspired. Thanks to the talented designers at MDS Monday. So easy and refreshing. Go check the tutorial at MDS to do the photo grouping. Creativity with no mess...lol!
Me encanta seguir las ideas y esquemas en ese website y ser inspirada. Gracias a las talentosas disenadoras en MDS Monday. Tan facil y refrescante. Vaya y vea el tutorial para agrupar fotitos. Creatividad sin regueros...jaja!
