Autumnal Inspiration - Classy Cards 'n Such

Hello! Today I want to share what I made for this week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such: Trees and/or Fall Foliage (Use trees and or fall leaves, plants). I enjoyed using earthy tones and lots of texture to make my card... It is truly an Autumn inspired creation.


I used mostly Spellbinders dies to make this card. First I die cut a bunch of leaves with Bitty Blossoms, from different cardstocks, which included Echo - Bronze Stardream Metallic. I colored a couple of leaves with Yellow Gold Inka Gold. Also, I die cut some Pine leaves with Poppy Stamps' Pine Garland. Next I die cut an oval with Elegant Oval from Echo - Bronze Stardream Metallic and a smaller label with Fancy Label Tags One. I heat embossed a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs' Faith stamp set in Gold detail on the smaller label. I mounted the labels and added all the leaves to one side, framing the sentiment.


I did leave a space between both tags so I could run through a piece of ribbon. But before adhering it all to the card base, I added a piece of tan burlap ribbon, that gives lots of texture to the design. I die cut the card base using A2 Matting Basics A. I finished the card with two Baby Rhinestones - Silver.

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 …
