Floral Postcard Tag

Merry Christmas! I hope you've had a great time surrounded by family and friends! May our saviour Jesus continue to fill your hearts and homes with his never ending mercy and love! Today I have the pleasure of sharing a card I created with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such! This time I created a vintage card with lots of stamping and a few die cuts.

I like to use tags on cards. I think it's a nice twist that gives a card a different look. Today's card is the perfect example!


I started out by die cutting a beige base layer using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. Then I also die cut a beautiful border with the very new Spellbinders Mary Border Strip and three small medallions with Fancy Label Tags Two.

I adhered the beige layer to the brown card base with 1/2" Scor-Tape. Next I attached the border on the side and then I added a piece of pink ribbon on top of it. I also adhered the three small medallions on top of the border. Once I added all the die cuts I mounted the previously made tag, which was stamped with many images from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Bo Bunny, Flourishes and Do Crafts. I used Gold detail powder to emboss the PostCard sentiment on the tag. I decorated it with a piece of Fused string pearl beads in golden ivory. To finish my design I attached a pretty bow, embellished with a large gold vintage button.

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…
