HIMCR05NSD - Thank You

Hello again! This is the last challenge of the day on Hiding in my Craft Room, the Design Team has made a great effort and has had a lot of fun creating all these projects and celebrating National Scrapbooking Day. I'm so glad you could stop by every hour to check out our work and our challenges.

And to close this celebration, we want to say thank you to all of you for your support and kind comments. Also, our last challenge is to create a thank you card or gift.


The sponsor is

I had the chance to use one of their gorgeous images, Vintage Poppy Cluster. So nice to work with! Please take a look at what I created with it:


Materials
Stamps:
A Day for Daisies - Vintage Poppy Cluster
Stampendous - Spanish Grettings
Spellbinders:
- Large Labels
- Grand Large Labels
- Gold Labels Four
- Ornamental Iron embossing folder
- Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Spectrum Noir markers - Reds
Staedtler markers - light brown
Ranger Distress ink in Old Paper
Merletto crystals
Bazic two sided tape and foam tape

3/8" gross grain ribbon in light brown
1/4" gold edge satin ribbon in old gold
Vintage button

This is an A2 gate card with a thank you tag included in a hidden pocket. I started by dry embossing the card base front (both sides of the gate). I layered it with three Classic Labels and two Gold Labels Four on the right. I used the 'out of the box' techique with the top layer, so some petals and stems were left outside the label. When adhering this last layer, I left one side unattached so that I could use that space as a pocket for my tag. All these layers were adhered to the top side of the gate, so to speak. I added some crystals, ribbon, and a double bow with a vintage button to finish my design.

I hope you  like my card and that you can join at least one of our NSD challenges. They will be open for a week, so you have time to link up your project!

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…

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…
