Accidental Goodness / Divino Accidente


Hello everyone!

So I was trying to make a distressed matte multicolor background with some pearlescent stamped flourishes...  Didn't count with the distress ink being still wet and boom! The whole background had embossing powder and once I heated it, it became a fun, shiny paper I HAD to use... So I just let it flow. I continue to deboss it and voilá...

The colors in the picture appear more bright and intense than they really are. "In the flesh" they are way more pastel. I really like the result. Hope you like it. It's quite a simple card, but considering it was the divine result of an embossing accident, I'm happy with it.

Have a great week!


 
 
Hola a todos!

Pues estaba tratando de crear un fondo matte multicolor con algunos sellos florales aperlados... No contaba con que la tinta todavía estaba húmeda y boom! Todo el fondo se llenó de polvo para relieve y una vez que lo calenté, se convirtió en un papel divertido y brillante que TENÍA que usar... Entonces solo lo dejé fluir. Continué dándole un relieve negativo en seco y voilá...

Los colores en la foto se ven más brillantes e intensos de lo que son en verdad. "En vivo" son mucho más pasteles. Realmente me gusta el resultado. Es una tarjeta sencilla, pero considerando que fue el divino resultado de un accidente, estoy contenta con ella. Espero que les guste...

Que tengan una semana grandiosa!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
