My Craft Spot - Guest Designer

I was lucky enough to be invited to guest design for My Craft Spot for a day. My Craft Spot is a stamp store that also carries dies, SVG files and embellishments. I've been admiring their stamps sets for quite a while and now through this opportunity I

I have two cards to share with you! In both I'm using a stamp set I love from My Craft Spot store: Clock Time.

Main Supplies

Clock Time stamp set
Dies - Spellbinders Rose Creations and A2 Matting Basics A, Our Daily Bread Designs Flourished Star Pattern, Cas-ual Fridays Casual Vine, MFT Notebook Paper, Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party Doily.
Inks - Ann Butler Crafter's Inks in Berry and Sunshine, Crafter's Ink in Snow, Iridiscent Paint in Berry
Enviromental Technologies - Easy Mold Silicone Putty, EasyCast resin, Opaque Pigment in white and red

Sparkle 'n Sprinkle embossing powder in Gold Detail
Adhesives - Crafter's Tape, Tacky Glue, Bazic Foam Tape
Dreamweaver Crackle Embossing Paste
Graciellie Design digital paper
Miscelaneous

Cardstocks: Linen textured cardstock in white, leather textured cardstocks in white and green, bond paper in pink
Embellishments - Burlap ribbon, pearl and crystal stickers, tulle
Homemade stencil

I went for a shabby chic style with my first card, using lots of texture and embellishments. To make the stamped and heat embossed clock image stand out I mounted it on top of a resin frame I made from scratch, and that I colored with Iridiscent Paint in Berry. I made some pretty shabby flowers and colored them with Crafter´s inks, trying to get different tones of pink by blending Berry and Sunshine inks. Besides all the layers added I applied crackle embossing paste too. To finish the card I stamped a beautiful sentiment from the same set on a piece of cardstock I ripped and sponged with ink.


Main Supplies

Clock Time stamp set
Dies - Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments, Poppy Stamps Village Lamp Post and Pine Garland, Our Daily Bread Designs Gilded Gate
Distress embossing ink
Sparkle 'n Sprinkle embossing powder in Gold Detail
Colorbox glitter in Winter Frost
Adhesives - Crafter's Tape, Tacky Glue, Bazic Foam Tape, Double sided adhesive sheet
ODBD Winter Collection Paper
Miscelaneous
Leather textured cardstock in white
AALD craft metal
Crystal stickers

My second card has a classy and elegant design. I wanted to make the clock stand out by adding it to the craft metal lamp post die cut. I created a window with the help of a beautiful frame die and stamped the sentiment on the center (or almost on the center) of the card. To finish the design I adhered some intricate gate/fence die cuts and a few leaves embellished with crystals. I love how well the metallic colors go together and how much they contribute to the final classic look of this card!

I want to thank Kimberly for her invitation. I have had so much fun with this amazing stamp set, and I know I will continue to enjoy it! I invite you to come check My Craft Spot blog where you'll find a daily dose of inspiration and creative ideas.

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 …
