I saw this cute Penny Black stamp a little while ago and couldn't help buying it. I love this image and thought it would be great for stamping onto fabric. I used black Stazon to stamp it, then I sew some seed beads and added stickles as well. I also used a designers card from Papermania, flowers, small brads and matching cardstock.

Besides I wanted to thank you for your king comments on my last post and I'll be visiting your blogs very soon!

Vi este lindo sello de Penny Black hace un tiempo y no pude evitar comprarlo. Me encanta esta imagen y pense que seria perfecta para usarla al estampar tela. Para estamparla use Stazon negro luego le cosi moztacillas y use escarcha engomada tambien. Tambien use una tarjeta del pack de diseñadores de Papermania, flores, pequeños brads y cartulina.

Ademas queria agradecerles por sus amables comentarios en mi post anterior y las estaré visitando en sus blogs muy pronto.

Close-up to sparkly swirls

Here's a simple layout I made using Basic Grey papers, a tag, die-cut letters, embossed words with a Cuttlebug folder, stickles, Sakura white pen,ribbon, buttons and die-cut flowers. This is one of the very few pictures I was taken with my older sister and brother when we were kids and as I can't remember many details of that day as I was only 3 years old I thought the embossing folders from Cuttlebug will go well in this layout instead of journaling. Thanks for visiting and commenting. Hope you have a great weekend!

Aqui podran apreciar un layout simple que hice usando papeles de Basic Grey, una etiqueta, letras cortadas con dies, palabras en alto relieve hechas con un folder de embossing dde Cuttlebug, purpurina engomada, lapicero de gel blanco de Sakura, cinta, botones, y flore cortadas con dies. Esta foto es una de las pocas que me tomaron con mis hermanos cuando eramo niños y ya que no recuerdo muchos detalles de la ocasion puesto que solo tenia 3 años pense que las palabras de los folders de embossing de Cuttlebug irian muy bien en este layout en vez de poner journaling. Gracias por sus visitas y comentarios! Espero que pasen un fin de semana genial!

I decided to try a different project this time and have a go at perzonalizing this plain bag which came as a freebie from a fashion magazine. I die-cut some flowers and hearts from fabric and felt and added extra detail to them by using buttons and fabric paint. I also used sequins and assorted beads. The final touch was a keyring I made using different sizes of beads, headpinds and wire. Many thanks for your comments!

Decidi hacer un proyecto distinto esta vez y perzonalice un bolso simple que vino como regalo con una revista de modas. Corte unas flores y corazones de tela usando dies y les agrege mas detalles usando botones y pintura para textiles. Tambien use lentejuelas y perlitas. El toque final fue un llavero que lo hice usando perlitas de diferentes colores, alfileres y alambre. Muchas gracias por sus comentarios.

I finally came with an idea on how to use those special beads (the ones with the little blue flower)I bought in the Peruvian airport last year. I decided to use them as the center of my wire design and attached some more glass beads in different shades of blue. I made the wire shape using a wire jig and colored wire. I also used head pins and earring hooks. Thank you for your comments!

Finalmente tuve una idea de como usar esas piedritas especiales que compre en el aeropuerto de Perú el año pasado. Decidí usarlas como el centro de mi diseño de alambre y también le añadi mas piedritas de vidrio en direrentes tonos de azul. Use un molde para alambre y alambre de color, alfileres y ganchos para aretes. Gracias por sus comentarios.
