DEE Release Hop

Welcome to January's Dilo En Español Release Party!
Bienvenidas a la fiesta de DEE celebrando el lanzamiento de nuevos sellos este mes de enero!

Hope you just arrived from Dilo En Español.  If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and wish to participate, please start at the beginning HERE
Espero estén aquí vía el blog de Dilo En Español Pero si solo llegaron de visita y gustan participar, por favor comiencen en ESTE blog.

These eleven (11) sets have been out since December, but Abby so kindly gave us the month off to enjoy the holidays with our families!
Estos once (11) sets de sellos salieron desde diciembre pero no se los habíamos presentado porque Abby nos dio de descanso toda la temporada navideña!

Project 1
Today I am sharing an announcement/invitation I created using the latest trend of  "chalkboard" technique.  This is my first attempt at this technique and I like it.
Hoy les comparto esta invitación/anuncio que cree utilizando una de las ultimas técnicas que le llaman "chalkboard" - "pizarrón/pizarra?"

Using a masking technique I covered parts of the cake and was able to stamp using Versamark some of the flower adornments found on this cute cake designed by Liz.

I used white embossing powder, white Colorbok ink and a white pencil.

I was about to not like the fact that the white pencil I used is a bit "creamy" and left marks that appear to be part of my embossing gone wrong, but I decided that this technique is not intended to be perfect, so I settle for "happy with the results."
The paper is by Echo Park.  Did you know you can find Echo Park paper pads at the STORE!
Below are the phrases highlighted by a green bubble.

Project 2
On to my next project.
If you visit my blog you have noticed that I am documenting my life using Project Life and/or similar products.
I stamped the calendar, phrase, hearts and check boxes from several of the sets listed below to embellish/create this journal card from the Simple Stories Snap collection (6x6 paper pad) also found at the STORE.

I used three sets to embellish this card.  The "Me Lattes" "Me Flechastes" and the "Mi Calendario"
I will be using this card during the Valentine's week.

Project 3
This card is out of my usual a bit, but just had to try creating something with this gorgeous butterfly die.  And the sentiment "te atrapare" which translates to "I will catch you" seem perfect for my card!
I used several pearlized colors of cardstock to give it that elegant look.

Closer look at the shimmery paper a bit better.
Here is the set I used to stamp the phrase.

Project 4
I created this super simple card using the"Me Lattes" set.

I stamped the smallest heart using red ink in the outline of the heart found on the small coffee cup.
That is it for me for today!
Come back tomorrow to see four (4) more projects I will be sharing.
Regresen mañana! les estare compartiendo cuatro projectos mas y otra palabra código!
