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:

Justrite stamps - Ooh La La French Frills
- 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
- Double Sided Foam Mounting Tape

- Double Sided Tape
- 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!

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 …
