More for the Curtain Challenge

I kept thinking about the current Curtain Call Challenge because I loved the color combination. Then I thought of making another card using the colors even though not exactly following the theme on tasty tropics. 

I used some embossed white paper as base and stamped on it after a few strips of colors using watercolor pencils and water.  Yes.  I stamped on embossed paper on purpose and I usually do to end up with abstract or incomplete images with an imperfect touch. You know I love imperfection. 

Then I sprayed more color in a corner an let the paint travel a little I the paper. 

Love the delicate result of the image in this card combined with the rest of embellishments.   Love it. 

Look at the challenge picture and link below for reference.  Bye!!!
Have a great weekend. 

Tasty Tropics challenge

Hey friends. 

Current Curtain Call Inspiration challenge is about tasty tropics.   I live in the tropics and it is very hot right now. LOL. 
For more info on the challenge click the following link:

I made a card using a pitcher image from Unity Stamp Co.  because it reminds me of cold drinks such as lemonade or sangria. 

I sprayed color on a patterned paper simulating wood and stamped the sentiment on the corner. 

I used straws, sequins and washi to embellish.   Pitcher was positioned with dimensional adhesive so the straws are "inside". 

Honor you like it. I did like the final result. That is why I made another card with other colors. Just for fun. LOL. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great First Summer weekend.

El Amor siempre Ha de Ser...

Hola amig@s!!!!

Les comparto una tarjeta que hice con sellos de Latina Crafter. 

Combiné sobre fondo de papel de diseño, una serie en capas de diferentes formas destacando algunos lados con adhesivos dimensionales. 
La última de las capas en blanco sirve para presentar la imagen estampada y coloreada. 

Un toque con lentejuelas sirve como adornos de detalles finales. Y el mensaje estampado en el borde inferior. 

Espero que les haya gustado mucho tanto como a mí me gustó crearla.

A scrapbooker's dream

The dream of a scrapbooker come true is to have your work published in a magazine or important publication. We also love to teach, win goodies and design projects, papers and stamps. 

I have had such great opportunities to have accomplished almost all of these in a low key level but it counts. LOL. 

I have had my work published several times in different publications and this is the second time for me having my work in such prestigious magazine, Craft Stamper, from UK. 

One of my cards was published in the July issue of this magazine. Awesome!  Thank you Craft Stampers friends!!!

Hope you like it. I loved the result and also loved a lot of people is seeing who Scrapper Myra is. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Padre Espectacular!!!

Al mes de junio mucha gente lo conoce por "el mes de los padres"...   así que aquí les comparto otra tarjeta de padres que he hecho.

Esta vez usé sellos de Latina Crafter los cuales me gustan mucho cuando quiero hacer algo en mi idioma.  La mayoría de los materiales de Scrapbooking son en inglés y los uso sin problema pues en Puerto Rico la influencia es muy grande ya que somos parte de los Estados Unidos, pero nada como decir algunas cosas en tu idioma, ?verdad?

Utilicé sellos de dos colecciones o kits diferentes. Uno es "Simplemente" y el otro es "Super Papá".


Para complementar el mensaje en la tarjeta utilicé un "cut out", tela de saco y eyelets... tratando de mantener el tono masculino en la tarjeta.

La base de la tarjeta tiene un repujado.  Es de DCWV.

Espero les haya gustado mi tarjeta.

Quick Birthday Card...

This quick little card was made with scraps and elements I had around.  Have you tried creating with the mess in your table?  Well... I 've been there and I've done that.  A lot.

The patterned paper with the chevron lines was left from another project and it even has paint in the back, but I like the idea of using it even though it has some of it you can see in this side.

The stick with the washi tape banner was from a past Latina Crafter birthday kit.

Then sequins that are always on my table...

The stamps are from Studio 112.

Nice birthday card.

Curtain Call - Sail On and Two more challenges


This is my entry for current Curtain Call Challenge.  I will also share it with Unity Show and Tell Facebook group and with my great friends at Craft Stamper Magazine with the Make It Take It challenge.  This last mentioned challenge is about getting inky so this card is very appropriate. Link for the challenge here:

In a cardstock base I sprayed colors. I then stamped the image and cut three times for the beautiful ribbon like strips. 

I assembled them and added the stamped heart image. Also added some sequins and the stamped sentiment. 

I love the unique background so much that I even made a mini tag as a bonus fun project just for fun. 
I sprayed some color in the tag and added a wood veneer and a stamped sentiment. 

Hope you like these!
