Summer Boat Card...

Hello My Friends:

Here I am with another summer card...

This one turn out to be a little bit more laborious than other cards but the result is worth while...

The center panel (checkers in light blue)  is inserted in the floral frame...(inlay technique)
and the flowers of the frame were colored some with "Prismacolor"pencils, others filled with shiny "stickles"...and some others left with the "Negative" cut outs...

for the boat I used the "Paper Piecing" technique

and the waves (3 different pieces of paper) were also inserted in the frame...
and placed on top of the Checkers paper..

Marine Collage...

Hello Dear Friends:

On this nice and warm summer here it is a collage card made with some dies from Memory Box spring release...

I used 3 different collage dies (windows in ochre, tan and kraft papers)  see supplies below to add some depth. These windows, come with the corals. The top one (kraft) was embossed with a "Cuttlebug" embossing folder...


At the corners, I added some flowers, seaweeds, a seahorse and some shells...

Summer Yellow Card...

Hello my dear Friends:

I hope you have not forgotten me...
I have being away, from my blog for quite some time...
I apologize for this...

In this time I have held 2 card classes at my local craft store and have being posting projects at the language (French and Spanish) blogs for Memory Box with their 2 most recent releases, June and July...and well the summer vacation and my acrylic painting have taken me away from here :(

But now I have returned!!! and let's hope that time will allow me to stay constant in here!!!!

Let's start with a summer card...

in this bright yellow card I used the "puffy cloud" die to make some "coral" mounds in brown...
always tried to find other ways to use your regular dies...

and I used the "waves" from the "lighthouse" die to make some more "coral" plants...

and the focal point is this school of fish...

The corals were taken from a "coral collage" die (see supplies below)...

All framed with a "tiny scalloped" edge in white

hope you like it!

Thanks for the company 
and I hope to see you back again in here!
