Scrap 'n Art Publication

A new week begins and with it a new bundle of blessings arrive. I hope those of you in the US enjoyed your long weekend...

I'm here to let you know that my project has been published already and is included in this month's issue of Scrap 'n Art magazine under it's 32nd. article: Reader Submissions July 2014.

The project can only be seen through the magazine at the moment, online: here. But I wanted to share that this is a project close to my heart and it features stamps from some of my favorite companies: Flourishes (Flowers for Jan), Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Vintage Postcard), and last but not at all least it features Haj Designs Papers by Dzenita. I have a bond with these companies, have had the opportunity to chit chat a bit with their owners and I am grateful for their beautiful products which contributed to the result of my 'Vintage Album Box'. To all, thank you!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new post for Ewe-N-Me Printables that I know you might enjoy. So don't forget to stop by.

Reminder: There is still time to comment on my giveaway since I have extended it a bit to give you all some time!

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 …
