Good day everyone! I'm delighted to be back with some good news... One of my projects titled Vintage Album Box, is out for publication and will be featured in Scrap 'n Art Magazine's July issue. This is one exciting accomplishment and I'm glad to be able to share it with you. Thanks to all who support my work, blog and other sites, I really appreciate it. For instance, I recently reached 100 likes on Facebook and it's exciting to see how the number of followers grow with each day that goes by.

  1. Oh, Gracie, that is so exciting!!! Congrats!!! Pretty app I will be able to say "I knew her when . . . ". I have another online friend I am proud to say the same thing about...met her while on a DT with and she was doing monthly embellishments kits. She now has her own brand of chippies, flair & masks (DeeDee of UmWowStudio) and has designed paper for 7DotsStudios. I can't wait till I get to say the same thing for you. "I knew her when..." {{hugs}}

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 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…

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 …
