A Sweet Wedding Card

Hello and welcome to a new post for Hiding in my Craft Room. I haven't been hiding in my craft room so much lately... Instead I've been spending some quality time with family and taking care of hubby who got sick last week and that's the reason why I didn't make a HIMCR card last Saturday.

This time we have a sweet challenge for you all: Wedding.

Our sponsor
The Paper Shelter
 
is giving away a $20 gift certificate 
to one lucky winner!

I had the chance to work with one of their sweet images. To my surprise their files include a pre-colored digi!



Materials:
The Paper Shelter - The Happy Couple
Spellbinders: Damask Motifs, Gold Circles One, Gold Labels Four, Iron Works embossing folder, Grand Calibur die cutting machine.

Distress ink in Old Paper
Merletto crystals
Adhesives: UHU All Purpose Adhesive, Bazic foam tape and two sided tape.
Other generic materials:
7/8" gross grain ribbon in soft pink

Metallic cardstock in cream and soft pink
Tule

The card base was a left over of some actual CAS wedding invitations I was commended to make (didn't take pictures of those, no time). The image is pre-colored so it was a matter of layering die cuts and adding embellishments to finish the card. I crossed two pieces of ribbon and added a double bow and some tule to give it a delicate look.

I hope you liked this sweet wedding card and that you feel inspired to participate on our weekly challenge. There's no need to use digital stamps, or our sponsor stamps whatsoever, as long as you follow the theme. Visit Hiding in my Craft Room to see what my teammates made.

Remember to stop by my latest giveaway post and comment for a chance to win my newest digital paper pack!  

Thanks for your visit.

  1. Gracie,
    Sweet card. Love the cute little digi, and colored to, how perfect. Your base looks pearlized, was it that way, or did you create it? Another good job.

    1. Thank you. It is pearlescent metallic cardstock, used usually on wedding cards.

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 …
