Let's Hear it for the Boy

Hello! It is Saturday already and that means it's time for a new challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room, HIMCR #150: "Let's hear it for the Boy".

Our sponsor this week is:
One lucky winner will receive 
two digital images.

Their images are adorable, and I had the chance to work with a cute little digi called Sherlock Mouse.



Materials
Spellbinders: Classic Circle Small, Gold Elements One, French Frills, Venetian embossing folder, Grand Calibur die cutting machine.
Inks: Distress inks in Old paper and Vintage Photo, Brilliance Tiramisu, Colorbox in Frost White
Spectrum Noir Markers - Essentials
Embossing powder in Copper
Merletto: Crystals, paper cord
Bazic two sided tape and foam tape
Other generic materials
Feuille cardstock in sand beige
Textured cardstock in brown
Linen cardstock in white


The image was colored with markers, die cut and layered on a faux letterpressed piece of cardstock. I also sponged irregularly the letterpressed layer with some white ink and it gives the card a grungy look. I wrapped the card vertically with paper cord and tied a little bow. Finally I heat embossed a sentiment in Spanish on a two toned tag that is also decorated with paper cord.

I hope you can join us this week with a male card. All you need to do is visit Hiding in my Craft Room and link up your creation.

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 …
