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.

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 …
