WINNER + New Giveaway!

 

Hello everyone! It's about time I announce the winner of my last giveaway. Lots of things have happened recently and I really couldn't find a moment to post the winner. Some of those things were really good and some not so much. To share a few, I had the opportunity to meet in person with a friend I got to know through my blog, a fan of my handmade cards, that came all the way from Belgium to visit her family. We had to meet, and I'm so glad we did. What a nice time we had! On the other hand a friend's father passed away later that evening... His loss is even more significant to me because his dad passed away just the way my father did. I hope and pray the Lord blesses this family and gives them strenght and overwhelming peace to carry on. But as you can tell, my heart feels heavy too.

I can still say I feel blessed, in the midst of it all... I am really happy to have the chance to share with you my projects and digital creations. As you may know by now, I've released a few more digital items so it's only natural that I offer a new giveaway!  But before we get into that, let's announce the winner please!

CONGRATULATIONS...

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 …
