Craftwell/ Sabor Cinco de Mayo Blog Hop

Hello, Crafty Friends!!
Welcome to the Craftwell USA/ Sabor Papel Blog Hop!! I am super excited you are here!! thank you for hopping with us today!!

If you have Just come from Debi Tullier's Blog, you are in the right place!

I am so excited to share with you my project! Today I am going to show you how I made this lovely card using Sabor papers in conjunction  with my Craftwell Cut'n'boss machine...

Supplies Used
Cut'n'boss Machine (Craftwell)
Teresa Collins Pocket Die, Doily- Lover's Lane (Craftwell)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Stitched Rectangle Dies (Pink and Main)
Winged Heart Die (Die-Namites)
Spectrum Noir Color Pencils
Odorless Mineral Spirits
Blending Stumps
3D Dots (EK Success)
Hemp Twine
Black Cardstock

I started by coloring this panel Sabor Papel's Recuerdos Amor paper.
A lot of Sabor's paper in the Amor Collection have an array of flower doodles on them... these make for great coloring. And coloring has become quite an awesome trend that I was just too happy to embrace. I just love to color! It relaxes me and makes me feel like a kid again!

I chose to color my flower images using color pencils and odorless mineral spirits with blending stumps.

I traced around each image then blended out the color with my solution and stumps. I kept going back and adding layers and shadows where I thought they would fall on the flower.

Look at the huge difference a bit of coloring makes!! On the left are the flowers I colored with my color pencils and mineral spirits... and on the right is an uncolored flower doodle. I love how much depth it adds! And for some reason, I found it much more easier to color a colored sheet of paper versus a plain white sheet.

I cut my panel out using my Cut'n'boss and a stitched rectangle die. If I stopped at this point it would make a really beautiful post card... don't you think?!

But I can't leave well enough alone... so,  I also cut out a mat for my panel to continue to build a card. 

 Then, I ran both through my Xyron Creative Station.

 For my little heart embellishment I cut out 2 different sized flaming hearts from more Sabor paper. I added foam adhesive to the back of each and layered the smaller on top of the bigger one.

Then I cut out this really cool winged heart out of plain black cardstock and layered my hearts on top of them. 

For the green frilly trim I used the sentimientos amor paper and my Teresa Collins die to cut out a doily.
 Then I cut the doily into four pieces (above), and added adhesive using my Xyron Mega Runner. 

I tucked the corner under my matted panel and attached it to a 6"x6" card base made using the Ramitos paper. 

Then I wound some hemp twine and attached to my card front using my winged heart.

And here's my finished card!!

I just love how this turned out!!

And my favorite part was coloring this gorgeous flower doodle!!

But the very close second place was making the very cool heart embellishment!

I hope you loved my project and that it inspire you to color your doodles too!!
