Winners Announced + Featured Artists


Hello! I apologize for being late, but as they say: "Better late than never", right? Well, I was thrilled to see the reaction everyone had with the latest paper pack Summer Joy, and for that reason two giveaways were thrown, one here at my blog and another one at a group of christian friends on facebook, where everyone could comment for a second chance to win.



The winner from my blog is:
 
 Cyn from Cynzplace


The winner from Facebook is:
 Cathy Phillips

Congratulations to the winners!
Please email me to graciellie at live . com so I can send you your paper pack.




Now I'd like to introduce you to two talented cardmakers who used some of my papers to create some beautiful projects! First is Kathy Clayton from Up in the Night with Kat, who couldn't wait for the giveaway winner to be announced and decided to purchase immediately Summer Joy paper pack. Thank you Kathy! Here's the beautiful card Kathy made: 


Love the vintage feel this card has. The image together with the papers looks great!  
And I would also like to introduce Ginny Maxam from Maxam Made. She made a set of cards using my floral paper freebie (see Freebies tab above), and she did a beautiful job... Thanks for sharing Ginny!

These cards are so elegant and the color combinations are outstanding!

Stay tuned for my next release taking place this weekend here at the blog, and of course with a new release comes a new giveaway. Don't forget that my sets are available for purchase through paypal here.

Thanks for your support and 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.

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 …
