Sweet Hope

I'm glad to have the chance to share with you a card I made with some lovely new items from Classy Cards 'n Such store

I started out by stamping the sweet Feeding Birds stamp from Wild Rose Studio, with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black on White Pearl Linen. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I die cut the colored image with Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and stenciled it with Distress Ink in Spun Sugar. I also framed it with a larger oval from the same set, that I die cut from Graciellie Design digital patterned paper printed on White Pearl Linen. I crossed two pieces of ribbon vertically and horizontally, through and over the ovals, respectively and mounted them on a large frame die cut from Stardream Rose Quartz  with Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight.

To finish the design I added a butterfly, die cut with Joy Crafts Vintage Flourishes Butterfly and a little tag, die cut with Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One, both cut from deep lilac metallic cardstock. I folded the butterfly in half and adhered it to the edge of the colored image. I heat embossed a sentiment on the little tag, a sentiment from Flourishes' stamp set Zinnia with White detail embossing powder on the little tag. Finally I tied a double bow and added some Baby Rhinestones - Silver.

I must confess I have a weakness for Wild Rose Studio stamps, and I loved coloring this image! I invite you to check out the rest of their stamp sets on the store... You'll love them too!

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…
