Textured Clay Leaves - Ann Butler Designs

I'm delighted to be back with a new card for Ann Butler Designs. I love the versatility of Ann's Faux Quilting rubber stamps and also her Crafter's Inks, so I decided to use the stamps to add texture to clay leaves and the inks to color them too.

I adhered 4 of the leaves around a couple of cute flowers. I also colored the flowers, and the round white layer to which I added the bouquet, with Crafter's Inks in Berry and Sunshine. The Berry ink once combined with the yellow, became a nice, soft peach. The colors blended nicely giving the cardstock a dégradé effect! I used a piece of green patterned paper that goes along perfectly with the leaves and extends the texture and green tones to the card base.

This little squared card was finished with a heat embossed Spanish sentiment on a vellum banner.


I hope you liked my card! Thanks so much for stopping by!

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 …
