HIMCR #148 - Super Scraps Saturday

Hello and welcome to a new challenge post for Hiding in my Craft Room. Like every second Saturday of the month, it's time for Super Scraps Saturday! That's right, it's time to put all those scraps into good use. But this Saturday is extra special, since Laurie (blog owner and team coordinator) is celebrating her birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURIE! I wish you all the best and more. I'm so glad I had the chance to virtually meet her. She's the very soul of this team and she makes us all feel like superstars.

Our sponsor this week is LAURIE herself. There will be:

The giveaways are a few of Laurie's favorite things:
Cricut Cartridge 
Blending set of 3 Copics
Gypsy Silicone Case
Embossing Folder

Now that you've seen what you could win, let me show you my card for today:

Spellbinders: Majestic Labels Twenty-Five, Fancy Lattice, Damask Motifs, Fancy Framed Tags Two, Bitty Blossoms, Venetian embossing folder, Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Our Daily Bread Stamps - Faith
Haj Design Paper - Vibrant Vintage
Inks: Ranger Distress ink in Worn Lipstick, Brilliance pigment ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder - Glam Gold
Zap! heat tool
Spectrum Noir markers - PP3, PP5
Adhesives: Pelikan glitter glue, Elmer's Glue-All, Stanley 14 watts glue gun, Bazic two sided tape and foam tape
Other generic materials
3/8" gross grain ribbon in cream
Vintage button
Textured cardstock in light pink
Feuille cardstock in sand beige
Linen cardstock in white
Specialty cardstock in pearlescent pink

This is a card with many layers and elements put together in the most harmonious way possible. Different textures were added with the embossing, glitter and various kinds of papers. It feels almost like a shabby chic/vintage collage. Also, I'd like to emphasize on this great sentiment, in which I truly believe, based on Luke 16:10:

New King James Version (NKJV)
10 He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much...

And I can conclude that if we are faithful in small things, we'll certainly be blessed with much greater ones!

I look forward to seeing a project of yours. All you need to do is visit Hiding in my Craft Room and link up your creation. Remember there will be 4 prizes, and you could be one of the winners!

Last but not least, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY. I hope you ladies enjoy a wonderful weekend surrounded by your children. A big hug to you all. Please stop by tomorrow... I'll have some freebies I designed specially for you!

Thanks 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 …
