Spritzed & Splattered with LOVE!

This week our challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such is: Letter It, in other words use a letter or more on your creation! I went ahead and used some letter stickers on my mixed media freestyle collage card! This is the first card I make with my new stamp set by SNSS, Parisian Postcard.

Main supplies
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Parisian Postcard
Dies: Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party, Vintage Flourish Pattern   
White Pearl Linen cardstock
Stardream Rose Quartz metallic cardstock
Heavyweight Vellum 
1/2" Scor-Tape
Empty Spritzer Bottle   
Seam Binding - Chalk White 
Baby Pearls - LeCreme 
Gold detail

To make my card, I stamped, colored and heat embossed images from the NEW stamp set Parisian Postcard from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, that I happened to design (yay!). I stamped some images on the background, some I heat embossed in gold detail on heavyweight vellum and others I fussy cut and mounted using foam tape on a pretty label die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs Vintage Flourish Pattern from White Pearl Linen cardstock. I stenciled the label with Spun Sugar Distress ink.

The top half beige layer was stamped, heat embossed and also sprayed with a mix of Peeled Paint Distress re-inker and water using a spritzer bottle. The bottom half of the base mat was cut from the gorgeous Stardream Rose Quartz metallic cardstock. I cut a doily from vellum with the English Tea Party die from Cheery Lynn Designs, cut it in half and adhered it on top of the pink layer with thin pieces of 1/2" Scor-tape.


Before adding the fussy cut images to the label I attached a piece of Chalk White Seam Binding, that I colored and wrinkled by spraying it with the same Peeled Paint Distress ink mix. I completed the card with a few Baby Pearls Le-Creme that go along very well with the vintage design and spritzed Perfect Pearls Mist in Biscotti and a bit more of Peeled Paint spray. I adhered the finished layer on a white mat cut with A2 Matting Basics, using 1/2" Scor-tape and then mounted it on a white card base.

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…
