Growing in Unity 2020 - Post #2

Hello Day #2 of Growing with Unity...

Remember to visit all five posts this week for the opportunity to win stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  :)

I'm sharing several cards today.

This first two cards feature stamp sentiments from Unity.   I used Gina Marie Designs dies to cut Christmas ornaments and assembled with ribbons and a great sentiment from Unity.

For this other card I used patterned paper as background.  Stamped the image in an oval and inked around.  I also added some die cut words to reinforce the words that are part of the beautiful tree stamp.

You liked them?  Hope so :)...   And remember to share your love in the comments... for an opportunity to win.  Two winners will be chosen among those who comment in all 5 posts this week (Monday to Friday).

Thanks for stopping by :)

Growing in Unity 2020 - Post #1

Hello beautiful people.
This is Growing in Unity week.  A great opportunity to share projects using Unity Stamp Co products/stamps.  It's easy.  I will share my projects everyday this week (from Monday to Friday), you stop by and comment in each post, and you will have the opportunity to win stamps from Unity. Isn't that awesome?  Yes, I know.
There will be two winners, so there's double opportunity.

I will share cards this week; most of them with Christmas theme.
I know Christmas is over in America, but in Puerto Rico we continue celebrating "Octavitas", which is a great excuse to party longer...  So we practically continue celebrating during January.  Woohoo!

This CAS card was easily made using patterned paper as background and stamping and coloring the sleigh in a white circle.    Sentiment was stamped separately and place with dimensional adhesives.  The tree is a cutout.

This other card is similar since I also stamped and colored the image in a white circle.  

I also used some glitter and glossy accents for this image and I love the result.

The sentiment is another cutout.  I added sequins for a final balance touch.

Hope you liked my cards from the first post.  Remember to comment in each of the posts this week.  You could win great prizes from Unity Stamp Co.

Scrap Lift...

Happy Saturday...

I made this layout for a #ScrapliftSunday from Paper Issues Friends & Fans facebook group.  It's been a while since I don't participate in a challenge and it is always fun to scraplift.  When you scraplift you don't have to copy or follow the exact same project, but you get inspired to make your own.  And that's what I did.

I wanted to scrap this photo of New Jersey and New York view from the Statue of Liberty, because my husband was born in NJ and I was born in NY.  We are both Puerto Ricans but it our story is very interesting because our parents lived in the States when we both were born.  Separate lives, and families but very interesting.

I inspired by Mary Ann Maldonado's page in which she uses a lot of layers of paper to frame a single photo.  I might had used many more elements since that's just my style but loved the idea of the use of the ephemera in an eclectic way.

I used paper from multiple brands, as well as washi, cut outs, stickers, chipboard elements, rub ons, brads, acetate, ink, and so much more...

Here's the original page from Mary Ann.  Stop by the Facebook group and participate . There are always many cool challenges going on.

Also... please come back next week to my blog.  I will be sharing projects for Growing in Unity program from Unity Stamp Co.  See ya'.

Merry Kiss-Mas and a BLOG HOP

Happy Sunday my friends.

It's just 10 days until Christmas and I am honored to be part of a magnificent blog hop from Unity Stamp Co.  So fun and inspiring to be part of this community.   Keep reading to see how you can win great products from this company.

I am sharing this little CAS card made using this beautiful Pink Fresh studio patterned paper.  I took advantage of the printed flowers and design to combine with this cute stamp of the two kissing buddies under a mistletoe.

Very simple and clean design with a powerful message... Kiss Mas is the best after all, isn't it?  LOL!

With same stamps and an additional one I embellished a gift box.  I used acrylic paint to first cover the box.  Then stamped and applied watercolors in a  patterned paper placed on top and bordered the lid with a ribbon.  

I love the whimsical playful look achieved while keeping the original patterned paper honey comb design still noticeable when you look closer.

There's so much I have in mind to create with these cuties.  Unity has great stamps I always love to use... you know it.   So that's why I am very happy to share this blog hop with these Unity friends too.  Go visit each of them and  leave a comment.  You will be participating for the opportunity to win a great prize.  I am #4 in the list (Scrapper Myra is my crafty name, or maybe you will see Edelmira in the list which is my human name).  Make sure you visit all of my friends.  Good luck.... and Merry Kiss-Mas!

Let's Celebrate - Elephant Card

Hey friends.
Happy Friday.
Hope you are doing well.  

I recently made this card for my friend and wanted to share it with you.  

I colored the image with watercolors and added some glossy accents.

I combined a brad with some patterned paper and the image for the festive card.  I also hand-wrote the name "Mine" trying to match the sentiment of the stamp.  Mine is a short name for "Mineluz" who was the recipient of the card.  

Thanks for stopping by.  I invite you to come back next Sunday, Dec 15th, at 8am AST and see what I have for you.  It's a blog hop you will want to be part of... don't miss it next Sunday.

Have a good weekend.

Trick or Treat Witch

Happy Halloween.
Hope you have a creepy day.

Stopped by to share this Halloween card I recently made with love, and was published on Craft Stamper Magazine.  I'm so grateful my work can be displayed in so prestigious magazine and I've been able to collaborate for a while.

This beautiful witch was stamped and arranged in a fancy dark scenario just where she needs to be.  I colored her with watercolor, added glitter and even added some burlap to maker her broom more realistic.

She's here to demonstrate witches can be fun and to wish you a happy day.

Trick or Treat?

Something Cheerful for my day...

Hello my friends.
Hope you are all enjoying life and making things. 
Today's my birthday and I am so grateful to be alive and for all the experiences I've had.
I have to thank God for love, family, friends, and work... well, I love my work even though sometimes it is too much pressure... I hope my heart can keep up LOL!
I'm also grateful for the inspiration, and the opportunity to create.  
And let me just go a little further and be thankful for wine.  :)

I want to share this home decor I made.  I've made a similar one before (HERE).  I used the cardboard corner protectors of a frame.

I sprayed several painting colors and dried, and blended, and dried...

 The colors created some glossy golden and irregular look I just love.

I stamped images and sentiments, and applied embossing powder, and heat embossed.  These provided texture and dimension... So cool.

I then used cutouts, sequins, and different embellishments to finish the decoration in both sides.

I allowed me to be imperfect in some edges playing with the stamps so they continued from one panel to another, and I like the rustic appearance that created.

It's not Christmas yet... but it is my birthday, so I thought I could share something cheerful.  

Have a wonderful day!
