Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous - Blog Hop Day #4

Welcome to Day 4 of the amazing partnership blog hop between Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous. Chance to win prizes and lots of projects to be inspired by, what else can one ask for? I am having fun sharing with you the projects I created using Stampendous Snowflake Die Set – DCS5069, Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069. And for today's project I'm combining these sets with Add a Little Dazzle's Wondrous White metal sheet, and Golden Glimmer metal sheet.

My project for today is a place setting in white and gold, perfect to decorate your Christmas table.

The place setting consists of a cutlery holder and a place card. The cutlery holder is made of white cardstock and has an open pocket to place a napkin and a cutlery set for one. I dry embossed the pocket and decorated it with two heat embossed snowflakes. The large gold snowflake was heat embossed in white and the medium white snowflake was heat embossed in gold. Both were die cut afterwards using the matching die set.

The place card is made using a partial die cutting technique with the help of Snowflake Die Set – DCS5069 I basically placed the large snowflake die on the edge of a 5"x 4 1/2" piece of cardstock and ran it through a die cutting machine making sure I only cut half the snowflake on the front. Then I ran it again through the die cutting machine on the other side making sure I only cut a fourth of the snowflake on the back. Right where the fourth part of the snowflake cut ends I scored and folded. I decorated the place card the same way I did with the cuttery holder.

I hope you liked my project, that you find it inspiring, and that you find it interesting to try out. I have one more project for you tomorrow, and it's a complementary project to these two I just showed you, so don't forget to stop 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…
