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!

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 …
