Super Scraps Saturday - HIMCR #153

Happy Saturday! How fun it is to be back with a card for Super Scraps Saturday at Hiding in my Craft Room. This is one of my favorite challenges, and today I have a card featuring paper from our sponsor Paper Temptress.

Paper Temptress is giving away
 a $25 gift certificate 
to one lucky winner

Gorgeous metallic papers travelled all the way to Honduras from Paper Temptress and may I say, they truly are great quality. For today's project I used their Candido Incandescent, which has a subtle golden shimmer and lineal texture that makes it look rich and elegant. In 'real life' it looks like a creamy white, just beautiful!

3/8" gross grain ribbon in tan/light brown

Vintage button in gold 

Besides the Incandescent paper I also used some other papers from my stash, but, Paper Temptress carries those textures. You can find them linked above on the list of materials, so you can check them out.

Because this card is made of scraps (except for the card base), all the elements were added as harmoniously as possible to create a shabby chic design. I made a bouquet, blooming from the top of the the card's front, and worked the rest around it. I added many embellishments that complement nicely the floral vintage look I was trying to achieve. Finally, a heat embossed sentiment and butterfly from ODBD stamps complete the design.

I hope you have enjoyed today's post, and that you feel inspired to join this week's challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room. All you need to do is visit the blog, follow instructions and link up your creation. Let's get rid of these scraps people! :D

Tomorrow I'll be back with new projects and a tutorial, stop by if you can. Have a great day!

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 …
