Thanksgiving Greetings

Thanksgiving was celebrated recently in Canada, but it's yet to be celebrated in the United States, so I still have time to share some crafty ideas for it. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving where I leave, but we used to do some abundant and fun dinners at the american school where I studied... Good old days!


Today I have a card I made using a cute vintage collage from Ewe-N-Me Printables called Collage Sheet - Thanksgiving 102. I used the image of the girl holding a mirror for the turkey that simply blew my mind... How adorable and vintage is that image!


I made a card with lots and lots of layers and though this is a Fall card the color palette is very different. I picked the colors on the image for my card's color combination. I framed the image and made it the focal point of the card. I added a rosette, embellished with Fall leaves I die cut, colored with pigment and distress inks, and with Inkagold in yellow gold, to give them a nice shimmer. Other elements added were a die cut doily folded in half, gold cording and some crystals.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and if you need to make some cards I highly suggest you visit Ewe-N-Me Printables' store, because they have lots and lots of beautiful files for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back in a bit with a new card for you, so stay tuned.

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 …
