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!

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 …

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…
