More butterfly effect

Hello!

Remember the beautiful butterflies I showed you in a past post.  (Click here:   http://winecheesescrapbooking.blogspot.com/2017/06/butterflies.html?m=1 )

I made three of them but only used two for my card.  So I used the third one for another card. 


This is a CAS design. I used colored burlap as base for the card. Then added a die cut shape where I positioned the butterfly.  I used dimensional adhesives for the wings so she can stand out. 


Also stamped the sentiment in vellum and added below.   Details with sequins provide a great touch.  


I will share this with Unity Show and Tell Facebook group.  Crossing my fingers to win the stamps. LOL!!!

Cupcake Little Card

Hello...

Let me share with you this cute little card I made for a niece.   It's a CAS Style card!

I got inspiration from current Curtain Call challenge.  You can know about it following this link:    

I started with a white card base with banner holes.   I stamped the cupcake image and colored. Also used some glitter help to make it awesome. Also stamped the sentiment below the image. 


In the interior of the card I placed two pieces of cardstock, one of them with a punched border. These are seen thru the holes and give life to the banner. 


Hope you like my card. My niece loved it.

Y... Otra Tarjeta de Padres... LCSC72

Creí que les había compartido ya todas las tarjetas de padres que hice con sellos y productos de Latina Crafter....  pero se me había quedado una.  

Muy sencilla en términos de los elementos utilizados pero a la vez muy poderosa en su mensaje. 


Utilicé un "embossing folder" simulando una hoja de libreta en un cardstock verde. Esto lo utilicé como fondo para la tarjeta. En esta hoja estampé los mensajes tipo listado pero simulando que están escritos en una libreta como tal. 


Voy a compartir también esta tarjeta con la gente linda de Latina Crafter por ser el tema de los padres.  

Todavía está vigente el reto de Latina Crafter.   Link aquí:  https://latinacrafter.blogspot.com/2017/06/reto-aniversario-celebrando-papa.html?m=1


Hasta la próxima!!!!

Butterflies...

Hi my friends. 

Here I am sharing a card with you. 
I started with the butterflies.  I knew I was going to use one but couldn't decide which one.  I made a colorful background and let dry before stamping and cutting my butterflies. 
I later accentuated the colors in specific areas of the images. 


I then created a background for my sentiment using some spray color and distress inks.  


With an old book paper I created a window to reveal the sentiment. 

I ended up using two butterflies.  




Hope you like it. I will share with current Take It Make It challenge at Crafter Stamper magazine blog. Link here:

And I also will share with Unity Show and Tell Facebook group.  

Thank you.

Otra Tarjeta de Padres... LCSC72

Como les comenté en mi post anterior, he creado ya algunas tarjetas para la ocasión del Día de los Padres, las cuales estoy compartiendo en posts separados para contribuir al reto de Latina Crafter.   Esta es la tercera y última por ahora. Jejejeje

Todavía está vigente el reto de Latina Crafter.   Link aquí:  https://latinacrafter.blogspot.com/2017/06/reto-aniversario-celebrando-papa.html?m=1

En esta tarjeta utilicé un "embossing folder" para crear un fondo simulando un tronco de madera. 


Con el "die" de Latina Crafter corté la palabra "Felicidades". También estampé el mensaje "eres el mejor papá", y la estrella. 

Usando un cordón y otro cardstock de color sólido, combiné todos los elementos para terminar el diseño. 


Espero les haya gustado.

Tarjetas de Padres... LCSC72

Sigo inspirada con el tema de los padres. 

He creado ya algunas tarjetas para la ocasión. Las estaré compartiendo en posts separados para contribuir al reto de Latina Crafter. 

No sé si ya vieron mi post anterior con los abanicos ... pues si no, vayan ahora mismo. 

En el reto de de Latina Crafter, además de un sketch, provee un twist que en este caso es el tema de los padres.  Todavía tienen tiempo de participar. 

Para esta tarjeta corté algunas formas a mano y otras con ponchadores para simular una cinta de premiación en la que estampé el mensaje. Use papeles de diseño , cardstock y vellum. 


En la base de la tarjeta estampé repetidamente la imagen de la estrella en diversos tonos y colores predominando dorado y azul. 

Voilà!!!!   Es una tarjeta a estilo CAS que ha de gustar mucho a su recipiente. 


Como siempre, espero les haya gustado este post y gracias por sus comentarios.  
Voy a estar publicando las otras tarjetas en próximos posts todos estos días.

Abanicos Creativos... LCSC72

En mi bello archipiélago Puerto Rico hace calor todo el año. Pero en verano se siente todavía más. Es natural. Siendo tropical, nuestro clima es húmedo y caluroso. 



A veces insistimos en realizar actividades al aire libre a horas donde el calor azota más fuerte. Y la realidad es que si no es así no hacemos nada. Hasta en nuestros hogares, si no se cuenta con un aire acondicionado o fuertes abanicos, el calor puede llegar a ser insoportable. Y no es una queja (todos saben que no me gusta el calor excesivo pues yo lo siento aún más fuerte)... amo este lugar... es simplemente una realidad. 



Un abanico manual puede resultar pasado de moda para muchos y hasta ridículo para otros, pero cuando hace tanto calor terminas amando el abanico y al final luce mejor que un papel o cartón cualquiera. 


Utilizando inspiración del reto de Latina Crafter hice estos abanicos manuales. Los sellos usados son todos de Latina Crafter, por supuesto. El reto, además de un sketch, provee un twist que en este caso es el tema de los padres. 

Todavía tienen tiempo de participar si lo desean pues el reto corre durante todo el mes de junio. 



Espero les haya gustado este post y gracias por sus comentarios.  Recuerden que también pueden ver mis proyectos y seguirme como Scrapper Myra en Instagram y en Facebook. 


Buen fin de semana.

My lucky star... Father's Day

Another Father's Day card for the stack. It's a CAS style that combines patterned paper with vellum and stamping. 


The patterned paper resembles star constellations and reminded me of this sentiment Stamp that mentions "my lucky star".   So I stamped it over vellum. 


I also added a Father's Day sentiment in a separate piece of paper and added with dimensional adhesives. 


Some enamel dots finishes it. Done. 

Like it?

Happy Hour for Father's Day

Hi. Here's a CAS card for Father's Day. This holiday is a great excuse for a happy hour of dad likes that, right?

I combined three stamps from different kits from Unity Stamp Co, to convey the message. 

Colored the image with watercolor and added glossy accents and glitter for dimension and interesting look. 


To make sure I was adding some masculine aspects I used a patterned paper with brown, bronze and metallic circles. 

Also added some enamel dots and twisted the stamped image and sentiments a bit to create some movement. 


Hope you like my card. Thank you for your comments. You can find me in Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest under "Scrapper Myra" name.  Hope to connect with you there.

Getting Ready for Father's Day

I hadn't done any Father's Day cards yet.  This is my first one. 

Sometimes it is difficult to make a masculine card because too many embellishments not suitable for the theme can be dangerous. LOL. At least that's how I feel.  The simpler the better when talking about male cards... but I just cannot avoid to add some elements or touches... and that can be also achieved with simplicity. 


For this card I watercolored my own imperfect background.  The least uniformity, the better. I stamped the wood image and applied embossing powder, the heated and ended up with great texture.  Oh, I wish you could see the real texture. I darkened the photo a bit to make it more visible to appreciate. 


I used a combination of corrugated cardboard, spray paint, threads, eyelets and more...  for the final composition... guess the card resulted very masculine after all... Hope so. 


Have a great week.

A blessing! That's what you are!

Hello all. 

Made this card to remind someone how special one is. We all are a blessing ourselves.

I didn't want to complicate the card with symbols or too many elements like I sometimes do; but wanted to convey a very simple and direct message to the recipient.  I had several options of sentiment or messages so I asked my boss to choose among them. This message about being one blessing is just simple and so true. 

The person receiving the card will get a medical intervention soon and we (at work), all wanted to let him know how special he is and remind him to have faith and be sure God will protect him during the whole process. 


I first simulated seeing in a piece of cardstock borders, by drawing lines. Then I used watercoloring to create a background of multiple shades. I then added some texture with modeling paste using a stencil.  The message stamped in Spanish means:  life is full of blessings... you are one of them. 


I also used some washi tapes for a frame and placed the layer with the message with dimensional adhesives. 


Finishing touches were added with some enamel dots. 

Hope you like it.  Tell me about it in the comments section below. Thanks.

My DH's birthday

Today's a very special day. My hubby's birthday!!!!!

Thank you God for life with him... in good and bad... health and sickness... some days with more and some with less...   with imperfections from one side to another but loving each other everyday ... 

He's my favorite sommelier, handyman, teacher, engineer, husband, son, friend and more.  Sometimes he's the one who puts my feet on the ground and sometimes he is there just to make me laugh. 

The only thing to wish today is for more of the same... for many many years. 

Feliz cumpleaños !!!!!

Made this card very very nervous so he didn't find me making it. LOL. It's quite simple in the outside.  Lots of circles work as a frame for the sentiment stamped in Spanish. 


The cool unique difference of he card is on the inside. Instead of a regular sentiment interior of a card, I placed a mini album photo page with different messages and photo. Unique and special for my dear husband. 


Hope you like it.

Mother's Day cards!

I really try to participate in some of the multiple activities during National Scrapbooking Day this past weekend.   However, the truth is I didn't have much time and I really didn't feel the mood when had a little.  

So I made these quick little cards last night just to liberate some of the scrapbooking desire.  LOL!


These are CAS style cards because they re easy to replicate using other elements and  colors. 


Different bases with a folder type patterned paper, a sentiment and other embellishments would do it. 

Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

Never too early to create...

I made this card recently using Unity Stamp Co stamps, watercolor paints and Prima Color Sprays.


It's a Halloween theme card and I know it's kind of outdated. But it is never too early or too late to create. Inspiration comes in different shapes and can surprise you. 


Hope you like my little card and have a happy National Scrapbooking Day today!

Círculos y Rectángulos LCSC70

Hola a todos.para el reto de abril de Latina Crafter diseñé una tarjeta usando rectángulos y círculos. 

Comencé con una base de tarjeta en cardstock blanco. La vestí con un papel de diseño dejando bordes alrededor que desvelan la base y simulan un marco. 


Para la base de la imagen usé un rectángulo blanco. La imagen fue estampada y coloreada con "watercolors" para crear un "look" suave y tipo  arte o cuadro de pintura con las imperfecciones que a mí personalmente me agradan. Líneas imperfectas... colores que se funden, un fondo de color que mantiene margen contra los colores de la imagen, etc. 


Este rectángulo fue enmarcado en otro rectángulo un poco más grande y de color rojo. 

El mensaje fue estampado en un círculo y combiné éste con otros círculos para la presentación gráfica del mismo.  Como toque final incluí varias lentejuelas. 


Me gustó mucho la dimensión que crean los círculos en la posición ubicada y el contraste de colores de la imagen con el resto de los elementos.  

Espero a ustedes también les guste. 


Estaré compartiendo este post y este proyecto con la gente linda de Latina Crafter. Para información sobre el reto de abril, accede este link:    https://latinacrafter.blogspot.com/2017/04/reto-de-abril.html?m=1
