Peach Spring Card

Hello! It's great to be back so soon with a new design to share with you. Today I have a card to show you in a very soft color combination. Using peach, beige, and a vintage floral paper, I managed to create a project for some of the challenges I've been wanting to link to. Please take a look at what I came up with:


























Materials
Justrite stamps - Ooh La La French Frills
Spellbinders:
- Gold Circles One

- Bitty Blossoms
- Rose Creations
- A2 Matting Basics
- Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Craft Concepts embossing folder - More Dots
Haj Designs paper - Absolute Floral
Bazic:
- Double Sided Foam Mounting Tape

- Double Sided Tape
Merletto:
- Crystal Stickers

- Pearl Stickers
Other generic materials
Textured cardstock in salmon and sand
Linen cardstock in white
7/8" peach satin ribbon


I used a sketch to get started from Justrite's current challenge.

I was able to incorporate all these elements and somehow keep harmony with the original sketch. This is a very classic design, so nothing out of this crafty world goes on here, but I did alter a circle die to make it an oval. I die cut the roses from the floral patterned paper I also used for the slanted layer on the back. That layer together with the dot embossed cardstock fill the card's background. To finish this creation I added some pearls, crystals and ribbon, the perfect recipe.
 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Before we go into today's giveaways details, I would love to share the first card I made with my new rubber stamp sets! This is one of my favorite flowers in the collection and I had to play with it right away! This set is called Amazing Things and it includes beautiful inspirational sentiments.


I stamped the flowers in black, using Umbrella Crafts Premium Dye Ink and colored the image with Spectrum Noir Makers Purples and Reds. I fussy cut the images using Westcott's Titanium Bonded Microtip Precision Scissors (…

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…
