Super Scraps Saturday - HIMCR #145

Hello everyone! As all of you must know by now I'm part of Hiding in my Craft Room's DT. So every Saturday I'll be posting a project for our weekly challenge. And like every second week of the month, today it's time for Super Scraps Saturday. To play along, make a project using paper scraps only... That's right!  

Our sponsor this week is My Besties!


The winner of this challenge will receive 5 digital images!

With no further ado, let me show you a card I made using a cute My Besties' image and some scraps for the challenge:




Materials
Spellbinders:
- Gold Circles One

- Small Lables
- Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Craft Concepts embossing folder - More Dots
Spectrum Noir markers - Pinks 
Faber Castell watercolor pencils (brown)
Avocado Arts stamps - Who Loves You
Ranger embossing ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Linen White
Zap! heat tool
Barrilito heart punch
Merletto crystal stickers
Bazic double sided tape
Other generic materials
Hawaii cardstock in white
Textured cardstock in sand and mint
7/8" light pink gross grain ribbon

This is an A2 card made entirely of card stock scraps and left overs. The little owls are actually one same digital stamp I edited to look like a pair looking at each other. I colored them with markers in various shades of pink. For the branches I used watercolor pencils. To my surprise I was able to find scraps that coordinated nicely, both in color and texture. I love how well the pink and mint work together!

Now it's your turn! We would love to see what you create. To play along visit hidinginmycraftroom.com, follow our guidelines and link your project.

  3. What a cute card...love the way you manipulated the owls to be a pair of love struck birds...ingenious. I know this may sound silly, but it looks yummy to me, like Spumoni, and I love Spumoni.

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 …

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…
