The Card Concept Winner

Hello everyone! I am not so excited today because of so much back pain... GOODNESS! But there´s always a good reason to get up. I really wanted to come here and share with you some good news. Today I was picked a Winner on the Card Concept Blog by one of the designers: Ardith. THANK YOU Ardith! I really needed this motivation today.

This is the winner card:


 

 I appreciate the DT's encouraging comments, and also the wonderful girls' comments that were before and after my participating cards, some of them are my bloggy friends now.
 

Some other good news that Blogger vanished from my entries and that had to be published yesterday, is that I won random on two other blogs, the first one: Sweet & Sassy Stamps. I absolutely love their stamps and I am so pleased that I won, I could pick up some goodies I had on my wish list!!! And then another prize at DisDigi Designs, a voucher for Marker Pop store. I didn't know this place but they have an amazing variety of crafty things and amazing low prize dies (Xcut dies). Really, go check them out! I preordered some new dies that aren't in the market yet, so that should arrive on my birthday (on May, JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA). I have to be patient, my purchases ship twice, first to Florida and then to my country. 

So I guess my luck is improving, lol. And I am about to get a little prize from Avocado Stamps that I won on the Season's Blog Hop (remember that one?). To know about that click here.

I am planning some projects, I hope I can post them soon. Have a great day. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Remember you too could win some blog candy:

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 …
