Let's celebrate His love today!

Happy Valentine's day! On a day like today I want to take a moment to meditate on my God's faithful and unconditional love, a love that never fails, a love that sustains every other kind of love there is in this world. His mercy sustains me day and night, keeps me grounded during trying times and is with me throughout my sleepless nights. Today most of all I want to celebrate His love for me!

I am sharing a card I showed briefly a few days ago, together with it's supplies. I must admit this card ended up looking very lovely, especially because of the color palette I worked with. One of my cardmaking weaknesses is pink and in this case combining it with beige linen cardstock and a bit of distressing to darken the edges made the color stand out in a very organic way.


I decided to create a doily frame using Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party die and embellished it with handmade flowers created with the new Botanical Rose and Botanical Wings by Heartfelt Creations.

I love how the doily frame makes this card look. I think it gives the card lots of texture. This particular doily die cut looks so much like real doilies!

I enjoyed making this card very much, and I hope I have inspired you too! All the supplies used to make this card are linked below. I wish you all a blessed weekend surrounded by your loved ones.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'd like to share my card with:

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…
