If Friendships were Flowers...

Hello there! After what was a very difficult weekend due to health issues, first my son and then myself, I am grateful to be able to post a new card for you. I thought I'd never get to finish this card, because I am running out of die cut remainders... I am in desperate need of my Grand Calibur's handle and it hasn't arrived yet. Still, creativity finds it's way and I am able to create some projects. Oh, but if I had my die cutting resources... What a different story that would be!

This card I created for Latina Crafter and Flourishes, I merged both challenges. And I went for a shabby look:

- Gold Labels Six
- Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Prima Marketing:
- Polka Dot mini background stamp
- Lady Bird cling stamp set
Darcie's stamp: Cup of Tea
My Pink Stamper: Spanish Sayings
Memento dye ink in: Angel Pink, Rich Cocoa
Brilliance pigment ink in Pearlescent Beige
Ranger Distress ink in Spun Sugar
Ranger embossing ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Glam Gold
PaperCraft Inspirations: Vintage Parisian paper
Far Far Hill: My Naive Love paper
Merletto Pearls and Crystals
Bazic two sided tape and mounting tape
Other generic materials
3/8" gross grain ribbon in Cream
2" one sided lace
Cardstock in: light pink & sand

The sentiment stamped translated to English says: "If friendships were flowers, I'd pick you".

I want to share with you the freebie digital paper set I used for the ribbon banner.

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 …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
