Have you thought of me?

This week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such is Thoughtful using the range of colors from the inspiration photo (see here). There are so many pretty colors on the photo, chances are you will be inspired instantly! Adding sentiments such as "Thinking of you", "In my thoughts", "Here for you" and more would certainly be fitting for the challenge. There is still time to join so I hope you can share your  creation with us in the next couples of days. I went for a "thinking of you" card combined with a Valentine's theme.


I embellished the front of the card with handmade flowers. Crepe paper works wonderful for flowers and though you have to be very careful while you make them it's oh so worth it. I sponged the petals edges with dark ink and sprayed the center with lighter tones. This gave the flowers an organic, vintage look.


When you open this pretty card you are welcomed by a 3D, pop-up Eiffel Tower! I actually cut four flaps on each side of the card with an exacto knife to adhere the towers. I added another cupid and a Thinking of you sentiment from my stamp set Parisian Postcard to the tower to finish the design!


For even more details on how I made my card, please visit Classy Cards 'n Such. Many of the supplies used to make this card are linked below and you can get 10% off if your CCNS order them using my code Gracie-10.

I hope you liked my card for today! I will be back on Saturday with a new card. Until then!

Before we go into today's giveaways details, I would love to share the first card I made with my new rubber stamp sets! This is one of my favorite flowers in the collection and I had to play with it right away! This set is called Amazing Things and it includes beautiful inspirational sentiments.


I stamped the flowers in black, using Umbrella Crafts Premium Dye Ink and colored the image with Spectrum Noir Makers Purples and Reds. I fussy cut the images using Westcott's Titanium Bonded Microtip Precision Scissors (…

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 …

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…
