Birthday Card for a Girl - HIMCR #152

Hello! Last weekend was full of crafty fun here at my blog and besides all the DT projects I shared with you there was also a giveaway (there's still time to comment). So stay tuned because later today I will be announcing the winner of my digital paper pack Tea Rose, right here below this post.

Today I have a new project for Hiding in my Craft Room using a lovely digital stamp from our sponsor Scrapper's Delights (the actual logo image). This week they will be giving away 3 digital images to a lucky winner!

Our challenge for this week is a color challenge, using Stampin' Up's So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, and Regal Rose. You can use similar colors from any other company, as long as you have fun, which is the most important thing for us!

(I added Rose Red to the combo)

Scrapper's Delights - Summer Breeze
Dies: Spellbinders - Fancy Lattice, A2 Matting Basics A, Butterflies Two, Timeless Rectangles. Xcut - Leafy Flourishes.
Spectrum Noir markers - PP3, DR5 
Distress ink in Spun Sugar
Adhesives: Bazic two sided tape and foam tape, Elmer's Glue All
Merletto gems
Other generic materials
Cardstocks: Leather textured in soft pink, Metallic in soft yellow, Smooth in green, Linen in white
Textured Foam in rose red

This A2 card was layered with many die cuts, making of the digital stamp the main focus. The image was partially colored but both the hair and the border of the skirt were fuzzy cut from the same yellow metallic cardstock used on the background. TIP: Because this is a non porous cardstock, what you print on it won't dry, unless you use a laser printer. But since I have a regular printer, what I did is I heat embossed the digi immediately with clear embossing powder, and voilá. Try this with any non porous cardstock, it works with images and sentiments too, I have even tried it on vellum: here.

After the image was done, I distressed it in soft pink and layered it on textured foam and other layers of cardstock. The butterflies and flourishes were the final touches. I think this would make a perfect birthday card for a girl.

Now that you have seen what I made, it's your turn to show us what you can make with this color combination. To do so, visit Hiding in my Craft Room, and link up your creation for a chance to win.

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 …
