My Paper Pumpkin Creativity

Good day everyone,

Have you find some time to escape and use your My Paper Pumpkin kits? Go ahead and create! I find myself so refreshed and energized after I spend some time stamping and creating. At the same time I create I meditate in he Word and bless those I think of. It is a time to play I impatiently wait to have.

Buenos dias a todas,

has hallado un ratito para escaparte y usar tus kits de My Paper Pumpkin? Vaya y cree! Yo encuentro que me refresca y energía el poder estampar un rato. a la misma vez medito en Su Palabra y bendigo a aquellos en los que pienso. Es un tiempo de jugar que anoro impacientemente.

MDS Honoring Husbands

Today I'l share with you a simple page I made for my husband's album I think he will like to see these pictures down the road. He is truly my girl's prince as they are his princesses. I love to be a witness of this beautiful relationship. May God bless him as a man of God he is and as a daddy to my children. I am grateful.

Hoy les comparto una pagina simple que hice para el album de mi esposo, yo creo que le va a gustar ver estas fotitos con el tiempo. El es realmente el principe de mis ninas y ellas sus princesitas. Me encanta ver estas relaciones desarrollarse y ser testigo del amor entre ellos. Que Dios lo bendiga como hombre de El que es y como papa. Estoy agradecida.


Are you grateful for the man by your side? Journal a bit of what you cherish about him. In this way I invite you to bring honor to your husband. Blessings and share your journey HERE!

Fabulous You in August

Good day my stamping friends,

I indeed have many fabulous people in my life. Especially ladies! I thank God for women who lift me up, tolerate me on my weakest moments and celebrate me on my highest. To some of these I sent a card this month as a thank you note for their support in my Stampin'Up! dream. It has not been easy to take the business route especially when I've never felt as a business woman. But, I'm learning and my God always places encouraging women by my side to motivate me when I just wanna quit ;)
To all these brave women…thanks!

Hola mis amigas queridas,

Ciertamente tengo muchas gente fabulosa en mi vida. Especialmente mujeres! Doy gracias a Dios por mujeres que me levantan, me toleran en mis bajas y me celebran en mis altas. A algunas de estas les envíe una tarjetita esta semana agradeciéndoles por su apoyo en este mi sueno de Stampin'Up! No ha sido fácil tomar la ruta de negocios especialmente cuando nunca me he sentido una persona de negocios. Mas estoy aprendiendo y mi Dios siempre me motiva a no rendirme por medio de mujeres que pone a mi lado. 
A todas estas mujeres valientes…gracias!

It is a simple card I cased from the Stampin'Up! 2013 catalog. I added my own pizzaz and colors (since I gotta have orange) and sent them before I left on vacation. I would not be where I am without them. Starting in a new state is not easy…so today more than ever I am grateful to have them and pray God gives me a new group of stamping pals soon. I am missing my ladies A LOT!!!

Es una simple tarjetita que copie del catalogo 2013-2014 de Stampin'Up! Le anadi mi propio diseno y colores (es que hay que tener anaranjado) y las envie antes de irme de vacacion. No estaria donde estoy si no fuese por ellas. Comenzar en un nuevo estado no es fácil….por lo que hoy mas que nunca estoy agradecida de tenerlas en mi vida. Espero Dios me dote de un grupo tan bello de amigas que les guste estampar acá en mi nuevo lugar, pues ando extrañando MUCHO a mis amigas.
Materials/Materiales:

*Fabulous You and A Million Thanks stamp sets
* Designer Series Paper packs (Brights, Neutrals)
* Basic Jewels Large Pearls
* Tangerine Tango & Basic Black Ink Pads
* Scissors/Tijeras

Guest Designer: Sweet Sarah

Hello my dear friends,

Today I would like to introduce my new Guest Designer, Sweet Sarah! She has become a sister to me in such a short period of time. I am glad to know this friend and artist. She doesn't only stamps but sews,  hosts, cooks and homeschool several children. I am in awe of her strength and today I cherish her. Be blessed by her inspiring work. Thanks Sarah for your beautiful friendship. You are dear to my heart.

Hola mis amigas,

Hoy les quiero presentar a una de mis nuevas diseñadoras, Dulce Sarah! Ella se ha convertido en una hermana para mi en un periodo de tiempo tan corto. Soy feliz de conocer a mi amiga y artista. No solo usa sus sellos, también cose, entretiene, cocina y hace escuela en el hogar a varios niñitos. Estoy maravillada de su fuerza y hoy la celebro. Se inspirada por su talento. Gracias Sarah por tu bella amistad. Eres muy amada por mi.

I've been playing a bit with my picture presentation using MDS. I just think this beautiful art deserves a beautiful frame. What do you think of Sarah' art?
He estado jugando un poquito con la presentacion de mis fotos usando MDS. Yo pienso que tal hermoso arte merece un hermoso marco. Que le parece el arte de Sarah?

I love the idea of putting the ribbon in between two tags. This is one of my favorite stamp sets ever and I love how she watercolored the surroundings. Lovely job my sweet friend. I am blessed to see this.

Me fascina la idea de poner cinta entre medio de dos etiquetas. Este set de sellos es uno de mis favoritos siempre y me encanto como coloreo con agua los alrededores de las flores. Soy bendecida al ver esto, hermoso trabajo Sarah!

Thank for your wonderful visit!
Gracias por su maravillosa visita!

Great Ideas with My Paper Pumpkin

Banners are in! Why not a card?
I wanted to do something different for this month's challenge at My Pumpkin Challenge- All Goes.
I cut a banner card with my Stampin'Up! trimmer :D and I loved it. This one is for a cool friend. She acts as if she has nothing to do when I ask her a favor, Oh my! But I know she is busy. Thanks dear CD for all you do.
Los banderines estan de moda. Porque no una tarjeta?
Quise hacer alguito diferente para el reto de My Pumpkin Challenge así que cree una tarjeta en forma de banderin. :) Esta es para una amiga muy amada. Actua como si no tuviera nada que hacer cuando le pido un favor mientras se que anda super ocupada. Gracias CD, eres única!

MDS Honoring Husbands- Honor means




My Digital Studio is a wonderful creative program. Im out of town but so much I can create with MDS.
Still meditating and studying about honor decided to do a page for my Husband's album with the word honor. To my pleasant surprise my pastor spoke about honor this Sunday at service...
Some of his words are still in my heart and this art.
Mi Estudio Digital es un programa excelente para crear. Ando fuera de la casa y aun asi pude crear tanto. Aun meditando y estudiando la honra decidí hacer esta paginita para el album de mi esposo con la palabra honra/honor. Para mi agradable sorpresa mi pastor hablo del honor en el servicio del domingo. Algunas de sus palabras quedaron en mi corazon y en este arte.

I invite you to honor your husband with me in different ways. Scrapbook about him, honor one of his request, make him a dessert or simply spend time with him. Then journal about it and share it HERE! It is time to rise and bring honor high in our homes. We choose to celebrate their strength and cover his weaknesses with grace.
Le invito a honrar a su esposo en diferentes maneras. Haga paginas de el, honrelo uno de sus pedidos, hagale un postre o simplemente pase tiempito con el. Comparta AQUI! Es tiempo de levantarnos y dar 

Hope to hear from you! In the meantime check my previous Tuesday's post or visit JessicaLubbock's blog HERE. Gotta love her entry. A bookmark!? Wao! Tx Jess for sharing. Me alegro saber de ti. Visite el blog de mi amiga Jessica que le hizo un arte especial a su esposo AQUI!

I am the Toothfairy! (Toothfairy Pocket)

A week ago one of my beautiful daughters lost her second tooth. When it was in the process of falling I knew I needed to think of something. Leaving money under her pillow is fun...but is kind of...eeeh...empty. Lol! My kids know I AM THE TOOTHFAIRY. My daughter reminded me of her tooth before I went to bed clarly stating "Don't forget!". Ha!
Hace una semanita una de mis bellas ninas perdio un dientito. Su segundo! Cuando estaba en el proceso de caerse sabia que queria hacerle algo especial. Dejarle dinerito debajo de la almohada es divertido...pero es bueno un poco...vacio! Jaja! Mis ninos saben que en nuestra casita YO SOY LA ADA MADRINA DE DIENTES. Mi hija me recordo antes de acostorme a dormir que no se me olvidara dejarle su sorpresita. Ja!
 
Here is my little pocket I made with the Apothecary Framelits. It was simple but it definitely got a 10 score with my daughter. Two pieces of gum, 2 dollars (I used to get quarters!:O) a little card and a monogramed bookmark completed the gift. What do you do when your kids loose a tooth? I love to taking the opportunity to cherish them and let them know I really care about the little details in their lives. I am blessed to have them and truly they are growing too fast!!

Aqui esta mi pequeno bolsillito que hice con los troqueles de Apotecario. Fue simple pero me gane un diez con mi chiquilla. Dos piezas de chicle, 2 dolares (A mi me daban pesetas!), una pequena tarjetita y un marcador para libro con su monograma. Que haces tu cuando se le cae un dientillo a tu nino? Me encanta aprovechar la oportunidad para dejarle saber a mis ninitos que los disfruto y valoro. Crecen muy rapido!!

I had to play with a couple of new Apps I got on my Iphone. Yikes! Technology is so tempting. Ha! I won't indulge on it every time, but for a sweet gift like this I thought I would play a bit.
Tenia que jugar con unos apps bien chulos nuevos que puse en mi telefono. Chipas! Que chuleria, la tecnologia es tentadora. No podre hacerlo por ahora todo el tiempo pero para este dulce regalito funciona. :)

Chalk Talk Stamp set (in spanish/en espanol), Notable Alphabet

Guest Designer: Loving Jess

I have been blessed with a group of amazing friends. I moved recently from my loving Texas but part of my heart stayed there with my stamping friends. Today I introduce you to my Loving Jess! She is just amazing in so many ways and since I moved has been an incredible motivator. She just has a gift to create! Yeap...SERIOUSLY create! She has been posting so many cool cards, scrapbook pages and more. I'm overjoyed!
Yo he sido muy bendecida con un grupo de maravillosas amigas. Recientemente me movi de mi amado Texas, mas parte de mi corazon se quedo alli con mis amigas de stamping. Hoy les quiero presentar a mi Amada Jess! Ella es simplemente maravillosa en tantas maneras y desde que me movi ha sido de gran motivacion para mi. Tiene un talento para crear...SERIAMENTE crear! Ha estado posteando tantas tarjetas, paginas de scrapbooking y mas. Estoy feliz!
 
 
Here are some of her latest creations. Beautiful pink hearts and one of My Paper Pumpkin kit stamp sets "Seriously". You must visit her blog to see how she uses these stamps.
 
Aqui algunas de sus ultimas creaciones. Corazones rosados unidos a una de las frases en sellos que vinieron con uno de los paquetes de My Paper Pumpkin. Visite su blog para que vea como puede usarlos.
 
 
So what do I like the most about Loving Jess? Her attention to detail.
 In the first card,did you see the embossed little heart? Loved it...white embossing. On this card her focus was the washi tape. Can you see it? Is beautiful, she mixed it with a strip of DSP. Great idea!
Bueno, y que es lo mas que me gusta de las creaciones de Jess? Su atencion a los detallitos.
En la primera tarjeta. viste el corazoncito en repujado blanco? Bello! Y en esta ultima, viste el washi tape? Muy bonito junto a una raya de papel de disenador.
 
 
 
I love the simplicity and beauty of her cards and I am blessed today that she agreed to be featured as my Guest Designer. Il share some of her beauties once a month. Thanks Jess!

My Pumpkin Challenge Yay!

 
 
 
I totally love the colors and the 'celebration' mood that came with July's My Paper Pumpkin kit. So...since I have no baking tools to make cakes and decorate them with banners at the moment I decided to go in a card direction.
Me fascinan los colores y el modo de celebracion que vino con la cajita de My Paper Pumpkin kit. Ya que no tengo nada para hacer bizcochos y decorarlos al momento me fui en la direccion de tarjetitas.
 
Island Indigo Cardstock and the new Honeycomb Texture Impression Embossing Folder put the twist on this fun card. Hope you like it! Hop over to My Pumpkin Challenge today to see what cool projects Boni and Heather posted today. Gotta love their creativity!
Cartulina color Island Indigo y el archivo de repujado de Panal de Abeja (Honeycomb) anaden interes a esta tarjetita. Espero les guste y vayan a ver las creaciones que hicieron Boni y Heather hoy en My Pumpkin Challenge. Les va a encantar!
 

***Just a quick Tip when you stamp your backgrounds on the little flags place a
Post-It note on top to cover the top of it from getting inked. Little details!
***Un pequeno tip para cuando estampes los banderines. Pon una notita Post-it en
la parte de arriba para cubrirlo y que no se estampe con tinta. Detallitos!!
 
Thanks for your visit!
Gracias por su visita!

MDS Honoring Husbands: Undercover

I am on a transitory season right now. Life is a bit unpredictable. I thought I was ok with change till I had no time to REALLY craft (as much as I like), post, participate in challenges, and have friends come over for stamping. Yeap! The 'joys' of moving and moving again. For the time being I have determined to focus on the positives. My husband is one of them!
Estoy en una temporada transitoria. La vida un tanto impredecible. Pense que haria bien con los cambios hasta que no he tenido mucho tiempo para crear (como me gusta de mucho), postear, participar en retos, y traer mis amigas a estampar conmigo. Sip! Los 'gozos' del mudarse y volverse a mudar. Por el momento he determinado enfocarme en lo positivo. Mi esposo es uno de ellos!
 
I admire his commitment to protect me. I know that is one of his main callings as a husband and I think he does a great job at it. :) I feel undercover and that gives me a sense a security I would never trade. I am grateful for his stability and his commitment to protect me and our children. God gave me a bodyguard in him...for this and more I will honor him.
 
Admiro su compromiso a protegerme. Yo se que es uno de sus llamados principales como esposo y la verdad hace un muy buen trabajo. :) Me siento cubierta y eso me da un sentido de segridad que no cambiaria por nada. Estoy agradecida por su estabilidad y su compromiso a protegerme a mi y a nuestros ninos. Dios me dio un guardaespaldas...por esto y mas hoy le honro.
 
 
 
Here my latest idea on honoring my husband. Soon I would like to start making desserts and things like that. But all my cooking tools are in boxes in a storage far away. So My Digital Studio it is! Also, the Lord gave me a HINT the other day. I am NOT called to correct my husband. I am called to encourage him, build him up and help him. I know, a position of trust and surrender. I am blessed indeed and I can see God working in my heart as I choose to let God be God in his life and not me :s God is good!
 
Aqui mi ultima creacion honrando a mi esposo. Pronto podre hacer postres y comidas especiales, mas todos mis instrumentos de cocina estan en cajas en algun almacenamiento, asi que por el momento My Digital Studio funciona. :) Un pequeno detallito que aprendi de mi Senor es que no estoy llamada a corregir a mi esposo sino a motivarlo, levantarlo y ayudarlo. Lo se, una posicion de confianza y rendirme. Soy bendecida y se que Dios esta trabajando en mi corazon asi que decido dejar a Dios ser el Dios de su vida y no you. Dios es bueno!
 
 
If you would like to join me in this journey in honoring our husbands link your posts, pages or ideas HERE on my past MDS Honoring Husband's post. I would love to see what happens in our country when women rise up to give honor where honor is due! It is a step of faith. Read my previous post ;)
I was inspired by the new sketch at MDS Monday #27 by Joan Is all about shapes these two weeks. Thanks for the inspiration!
 
Si te gustaria unirte a este reto de honrar a nuestros espositos has un link de tu post o paginas o ideas AQUI en mi pasdo post acerca de honrar a nuestros esposos. Me encantaria ver que pasa en nuestro mundo cuando las mujeres se levantan a dar honor a quien honor merece. Es un paso de fe. Lea mi post anterior. Fue ademas inspirada por el esquema en MDS Monday #27 hecho por Joan. Es con formas. Gracias por la inspiracion!

Not good enough unless..

Hello dear ones,
Just meditating and sharing what's been in my heart for a couple of days. My days have been so hectic...I may need to tweek my agenda since I make it. Goodness! We got back from Central PA looking for homes tonight. No house yet :P but after a looong drive back home, doing baths, bedtime routines and all I sat with my DH to watch a couple of Food Network shows. My goodness! Why something so 'fun' as cooking has to be made a STRESS...for crying out loud (ok! first time I use that expression, lol!).


Everything around us is stressful. If you do something well...according to the world standards is not good enough unless you do it in 0.2 seconds!! Gee! This needs to stop. That is a lie. You are good enough and you are very loved. :) On my trip back and forth from central PA today I kept meditating about the Hebrew word Shalom. I kept declaring this word, over me, my DH and children. I asked the Lord and even googled its meanings. There is a hunger in me to seek peace, true peace. The one that stays with you even if things don't go well.

I still have much to learn. I want His peace in my heart. It is part of the Fruit of the Spirit. Last week I studied the story of Jesus blessing the children. I taught the kids the difference between a prayer and a blessing. They then started practicing blessing each other with these words: May God give you peace (following Numbers 6:24-26).

So much to learn. Today I was putting it into practice. Trips with little kids are stressFULL.
Life, traffic, appointments, and even cooking can become stressful. Are we masters in making things stressful? I'm asking my Lord to make ME a peace-maker. A creator of PEACE. In my home, my parenting (uf, I need that one), in my appointments, even while I cook and do other chores.

Stress brings sickness...it distorts things and don't allow you to focus on what really matters. You may see less projects, but believe me God is working in my heart, I'm not only creating art, I'm creating life around. Il share a dream I had this week to see what do you think. In my dream I was teaching others how to make wax people. (Don't laugh!) Interesting to me, I was CREATING something beautiful, teaching it also...God gave me His ability to do that (even in my dream). I was making human figures with wax! And I was good at it. :) Well...one thing was missing in my dream for this I prayed and still will pray some more. In Genesis, God created mankind....beautifully  and wonderfully...but it was not until He breathed on them that they were instruments of His peace. Make me an instrument of peace Lord. Breathe on me...I need to be full of you and your Holy Spirit. Breathe on me....He makes such beautiful things don't you think?!!

There you have it...my artistisc loving heart, bringing my thoughts out loud. Life is crazy but the God of peace still reigns. Is He reigning in your life today with peace? He WANTS to do beautiful things.

If you got DOOOWN here, most probably you know me and love me...thanks for reading. For you I dedicate this song cause He still loves MAKING beautiful things. He CREATES...I love that!

Happy Sunday!

I invited Noelia to be part of this blog as my wonderful Guest Designer. And she CAN design! Yay! I love everything she makes. I met her through Stampin'Up! and I am ever so grateful she picked me as her demo. Now she is a demonstrator herself in Lubbock, TX. Eeeek!

For this beautiful card Noelia made a simple yet stunning bloom using the stamp set
Mixed Bunch. She is in love with the color green so I'm sure you will see more green along the way! Her sentiment is from Sassy Salutations and her embellishmen t one of those cute Candy Dot brads new to the Stampin'Up! catalog. Her twig comes from the Little Leaves Sizzlit Die.
Noelia, gotta say...love it!
Para esta bella tarjeta Noelia hizo un pequena flor usando el set de sellos Mixed Bunch. Ella le fascina el verde asi que de seguro vera mucho verde por aqui. La expresion de "Thinking of you" viene de Sassy Salutations y s adornito del centro son los Candy Dots Brads nuevos en el catalogo de Stampin'Up! Sus hojitas viene del Little Leaves Sizzlits Die.
Noelia, tengo que decir...me encanto!

Look at the envelope's beautiful detail on the corner.
Mira el detalle hermoso en la esquina del sobre.

What makes my dear Noelia special. Her heart and passion for the Lord Jesus. Look at the inside of this card. One of my forever favorite verses. So just FYI "Delight in the Lord..."
Que hace a Noelia especial? Su corazon y pasion por el Senor Jesus. Mira adentro de la tarjeta. Uno de mis versos favoritos. Un recordatorio "Deleitate en el Senor..."
 
 
 
Leave Noelia your love with your comnments today. So excited to see her talent and her ministry bloom. She is indeed a blessing and is in the business of blessing others.
Thanks friend! Keep your creative joy coming!

MDS Honoring our Husbands

Good morning my dear ones!
Have you ever wonder where have honor gone these days? Something is just not right. I hear the media, especially comedians bringing the integrity of men low so often that decided to see how I could make a difference. This is solely a step toward God's heart. He loves to honor others thou He is the only one TRULY worthy of praise. We have nothing to boast about.
Buen dia amigas! Compartiendoles una idea bella en la que podemos honrar a nuestros esposos. Demasiada charlataneria se ve en los medios de comunicacion especialmente de comediantes donde ponen a los hombres abajo. Hagamos la diferencia. Honremos a nuestros esposos. Es una acto simple acercandonos al corazon de Dios. El ama honrar a otros mientras que el unico que VERDADERAMENTE se merece la honra es EL. En nada nos podemos gloriar.


So here I go to not only challenge myself but also challenge you to put pride aside and start looking at the blessings we have. I felt in my heart I need to bring honor to my husband in a different way. So bear with me during this growing process. Nothing too well-planned just going with the flow and asking the Lord to give me direction. Would you join with me in this journey?
Aqui hoy me estoy retando a mi misma y tambien a ustedes a poner el orgullo a un lado y comenzar  a ver lo lindo y no lo feo. Crezcan conmigo y siganme los pasos. Nada muy coordinado, solo creciendo en como honrar a mi esposo y en esa manera tambien honrar a mi Dios. Te me unes?

Il place a link below for you to link your creations or ideas on how we can bless more, praise more, lift THEM up more and make a difference in our husband's lives. It can be whatever idea not only scrap pages. TIP: our husbands do NOT have to be perfect or even his actions deserving of this. It is a pure action of faith AND love where we choose to look at the diamond inside and not the imperfections from the outside. Step into the water with me. Let's see what God does in us, and in them through the wonderful gift of honor.
Pondre un linky tool abajo para que tambien compartan sus creaciones o ideas en como bendecir mas, levantar y honrar a nuestros maridos. DETALLITO: nuestros esposos no tienen que ser perfectos o sus acciones merecedoras de esto. Es una puro acto de fe Y de amr donde escogemos ver el diamante(lo bello) y no el carbon (las imperfecciones). Veamos que Dios hace en ellos y en nosotras a medida que les regalamos el regalo del honor.


Women, let's love our husbands. Let's do it in action, not only words.
Share your ideas or pages below. Again this is a work in progress. I will label this on the right-side bar as MDS & Honoring Husbands and do my best to keep at it every Tuesday as able (soon to go on a family trip). Oh my! I never stop, eh?! Mujeres, amemos a nuestros esposos. No en palabras solamente sino tambien en accion. Comparta sus ideas abajo. Esto es un proceso en el que estoy y quiero incluirla.

Inspire your soul Sunday: RememberJ means...

Hello my dear ones!
Be blessed today with time to give thanks for all the wonderful things you have in your life. I'm teaching my kids to wake up in the morning and let the first words out of their mouths be "Thank You Jesus..." and whatever 3 things they want to thank him for.A grateful heart is indeed a happy heart!

I am thankful for the many opportunities my Lord and Savior puts in front of me. One of them, creating with my hands. Stamping has been a sweet blessing. I never had great interest on paper crafts since I was very involved in Drama & Dance Arts. I used to lead and choreograph for a dance team at a previous church, also take Ballet, Modern and Jazz lessons for several years (these all after my 25 yrs old:).

Then I got sick in 2006. I suffered weird seizures and used to loose my balance frequently. Long story short, the Lord introduce me to Stampin'Up! Is interesting I know. I say He did, cause I had a dream with the company and I knew He was leading me into something new. I prayed for a while and then got informed online and contacted the only demo I knew vaguely. She was not a demo any longer but referred me to her demo at the time, now my Upline Nance Paine.

I am thankful for the opportunity to craft blessings for others. I had to stop dancing for a season, but the great news are my Lord Jesus indeed healed me from those attacks. I have them no more since and I am in no meds. God has been good to me. If you know me I dance to my heart's content at my church and home but only to His glory and in a rejoicing way of worship. I now also love to create for Him and follow His lead on my creative process. I am at the time praying  His plans  unfold with me in this company. Exciting!

Thanks for gladly follow my posts through these years. You inspire me to share and embrace life as it comes. Giving always thanks for life and the privileges I already have at hand.

Here a song to redirect your attention from me, from arts, from life to the Giver of it...Jesus.
This blog's name was inspired by the words "Remember Jesus".
It works real nice (since my name starts with J) for others to remember. But for me it is a constant reminder of focus your eyes ONLY on the Lord. He is THE ONE who loves me perfectly. My all to Him I give.


 
This song brought me to tears last Sunday. How much we long to see Him...and we will.
We all live in hard days, but He is perfectly faithful. Creative blessings!

I made this card inspired by the challenge at Technique Twist Blogspot.
This week we are playing with the Faux Wax technique. Did you see my first sample HERE the other day? That was done with a hot glue gun. Now today's is a bit more simple.
I used the new Stampin'Up! Clay to create a simple stamped medallion. :)
 
Hice esta tarjeta inspirada por el reto en Technique Twist Blogspot.
Estamos jugando esta semana con la tecnica Faux Wax. Viste mi primera muestra aqui hace dos dias? Ahi use pega caliente. Hoy es mas simple. Use la nueva plasticina moldeable de Stampin'Up!
y es simple!

Add a few drops of ink refill to a small portion of Stampin'Up! Molding Clay.
Anada unas gotitas de repuesto de tinta a una pequena porcion de plasticina.
 

Versamarked your stamp of choice and slowly and with even pressure stamp your clay.
Estampe el sello en versamark y luego en la plasticina con presion balanceada y lentamente.

Place in your freezer for the clay to get hard quicker. I waited a few hours to have a better result.
Pongalo en el congelador por un rato. Yo lo deje varias horas para que se endurara bien.
