MCT – 32nd Edition Release Blog Hop

fathers-day-card-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel-front

Happy Friday and welcome to the My Creative Time 32nd Edition Release Blog Hop!!!
After an AWESOME week of sneak peeks creations the day has finally come, YAY!  We are revealing all the MCT New Products!  They are Fabulous!  If you came from Lee-Ann’s blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma’s blog, so that you don’t miss anything!  As you saw throughout the week this release is 90% Nautical theme so here I am showing you another Nautical card for DAD 🙂  I used both anchors from the new “Anchors & Heart Dies” along with the new “Hey Sailor!” stamps and “Lost At Sea” stamp with coordinating dies.

For this card I was inspired by an invitation I saw in Pinterest.  I braided some cotton cable cord and glued it to the edge of the circle die from “Lost At Sea”.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp w/die set on top of a curvy 3D banner I made myself. 😉

Here is a closer look at the inside of my card.  I used the tiny anchor, added some Wink of Stella on top and stamped the sentiment from “Hey Sailor” which coordinates with “Anchors & Hearts Dies”.  I Hope you like it 🙂

MCT – May Sneak Peek Day #4

pretty-butterflies-card-lucia-ardon-up-todo-con-papel-front Hello everyone and welcome to My Creative Time final sneak peek day!  It has been an amazing week of inspiration 🙂  Today we are sneak peeking “Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy” stamp set and “Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Dies”.  Today I made a “Vintage” screen card.  I’ve been seeing this type of card everywhere so I decided to give it a try.  To create the shape of the card I used old MCT dies “Stitched Curly Label Die” and “Fun Stitched Edges”. For the inside, I stamped flowers using the old MCT “Build A Pretty Flower”.  Then I stamped the background using the new “Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background” stamp that we sneak peeked few days ago.  I also stamped in a few corners some flourishes from the old  MCT “Springtime in Paris” (camera didn’t picked them up though 🙁 ).  For the sentiment I used the new “Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy” stamp set.  I die-cut the butterflies from the new “Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies” and added gold to the edges and brushed Wink of Stella Glitter on top of them.  To finish it I inked the edges to give it a Vintage look.  birthday-card-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel Here is a closer look at one of the beautiful butterflies; I cut it twice and trimmed one before gluing them together.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is heat embossed on the “Stitched Curly Label Die” which is glued on top of the “Curly Label” die in gold. birthday-card-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel-closeupHere is a view of the completed card!!!  (click the photo to enlarge it) I hope you like it! 🙂

LA&C ~ Reto #11 ~ 100% para Caballeros

dia-del-padre-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel

¡Hola Chic@s!
Hoy en Latinas Arts & Crafts te traemos un nuevo reto! Nuestra querida Ruthie nos reta a que realicemos cualquier proyecto 100% para caballeros!!! En esta ocasión tenemos tres extraordinarios patrocinadores y no está de más decirte como siempre tienen fabulosos premios (ve el recuadro para más información).

Reto N11

Rápidamente se ha pasado el año y varias celebraciones con ella, la próxima será El Día del Padre y que mejor oportunidad para realizar proyectos para ese maravilloso hombre que forma parte importante de nuestras vidas. Hice una tarjeta; utilicé el digi Day Dreaming de nuestro patrocinador Crafty Sentiments. Este digi se me imagina aquellos niñitos que están sentaditos en una acera y que están soñando ser como sus papis. 🙂

fathers-day-card-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel

Lo he coloreado con colores que combinara con el proyecto 3D y para ello utilicé marcadores COPIC; he de confesar que debo practicar colorear cabello, jeje.

 day-dreaming-crafty-sentiments-designs

Para mi proyecto 3D utilicé el archivo de corte Comfy Sofa Gift Box de nuestro patrocinador Creations by AR,  es un super lindo sillón y para decorarlo encontré una tacita de porcelana que son para casitas de muñecas e imprimí un periódico a escala.

Me encantó este sillón porque cuando lo halas revela una cajita sorpresa donde puedes colocar un regalito o dulcitos!!!

MCT – May Sneak Peek Day #2

nautical-card-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel

Hello everyone and welcome back to My Creative Time sneak peek week.  Today we will be sneak peaking “Lost At Sea with coordinating porthole dies” and “Stripey Background” stamp.
Today I made a nautical card.  It was really fun to make.  I made a lifesaver using one of the dies from the new “Lost At Sea” along with a smaller circle die from the new “Bunch of Fun Circles Dies”. I stamped the new “Stripey Background” stamp on Core’dinations “Robin” Smooth Texture paper.

The banner is from an old MCT die Vintage Stitched Label”. I extended the cut to make a 3D banner.  I added Wink of Stella Glitter inside the lifesaver but the photo didn’t pick up the detail 🙁  Anyway I love it 😀

Here is a closeup of the card.  You can see the different circle perforations.  I made the smallest gold circles using the geotag die from the old MCT Never Be Lost stamp w/coordinating dies.  The medium and large circles are from the new “Bunch of Fun Circles Dies”.  If you notice, they have perforations in the inside and stitches on the outside (not shown) 😉

Mini Album “Mochila” – “Backpack”

Hola Chic@s!
Hoy les quiero compartir un tutorial que había hecho uuuuuuuy hace tiempo atrás y que hasta ahora lo he desempolvado para compartirlo con ustedes.  Este Mini Album (MA) con forma de Mochila lo realicé especialmente para el grupo de Scrap Para Principiantes en Facebook; este fue mi primer tutorial!  y mi primer video paso-a-paso en cual no lo compartí hasta el día de hoy!!! así que tal vez me escucharás un poquito nerviosa, jeje.
Este MA fue inspirado en una de varias clases que tomé con una chica que se llama Vita Padalino.  Yo le hice varios cambios para que fuera fácil de hacer y también le añadí dos hojas más 😉

Cuando hice este proyecto, mi mamá y mi sobrina estaban de visita; quise plasmar los recuerdos de nuestra visita al parque botánico en el otoño del año pasado, te cuento que fue un hermoso día, llevábamos con nosotras un poco de pan para alimentar a los gansos que ya están bien acostumbraditos a la gente, se te acercan así no más y ni se diga si les enseñabas el pan se te dejaban venir un montón que mejor hay que salir corriendo, jaja 🙂

mini-album-mochila-lucia-ardon-todo-con-papel-1

Este MA está lleno de sorpresas, cargadito de varias fotografías y pestañas ocultas, me encantó porque es super interactivo. mochila

¿Estás lista para ver como se hace?

Para descargar las “Plantillas” pincha en la imagen; luego das click derecho y los guardas en tu computadora.  También hay documento PDF con imágenes del paso-a-paso que lo podrás encontrar en el grupo de Scrap Para Principiantes en Facebook.

¿Quieres ver como lo decoré?

Espero que te haya gustado!!!
GRACIAS por tu visita también, por tus lindos comentarios que no solo alegran mi día pero me motivan más a seguir compartiendo mi pasión por el papel!!!

LA&C ~ Archivo Triangular

pearls-n-leather-archivador-papel-lucia-ardon-1

¡Hola Chic@s! Hoy en Latinas Arts & Crafts te estamos mostrando un lindo “Archivo Triangular”! así que te advierto que este post viene cargadito de fotos para que te inspires y dejes volar tu imaginación. ¿Quieres aprender a hacerlo? Marghe ha creado este lindo tutorial; lo podrás encontrar el día de mañana en (LA&C). ¡No te lo puedes perder!

En esta ocasión nos patrocina StitchyBear Digi Outlet y no está de más decirte como siempre tiene fabulosos premios (ve el recuadro para más información).

Tutorial #10

Cuando vi el tutorial de Marghe inmediatamente pensé en una carterita y eso quise representar en este proyecto; utilicé el hermoso digi Pearls & Leather  de Stitchy Stamps. He colocado como “cierre” un brad  en forma de broche vintage, papeles con diseños “Damask” todos en tonos rosa para que fuera todo “Girly” y le he colocado un dije de moño para el cordón.

pearls-n-leather-archivador-papel-lucia-ardon-2

Como siempre he coloreado el digi con marcadores COPIC con un color que contrate y le he colocado un stickles a las perlas para darle volumen y brillo 🙂

pearls-n-leather-stitchy-stamps

Este archivo tiene 7 espaciosos bolsillos que puedes colocar cuanta cosita quieras como tarjetas de presentación, ATC’s, cupones…

WOW quién diria que archiva tanta cosita!!! Ya llenito me parece un buen regalillo para alguna amiga scrapera, jejepearls-n-leather-archivador-papel-lucia-ardon-3
