Altenew Roses

Early this year I received a gift card from my friend Dana from Got Joy Creations. With it I got a set I had been wanting to get for a while now from Altenew, called Vintage Roses... This is a multi-step stamping set that creates gorgeous flowers.


One of my new year's resolution was to make more cards in Spanish. Based on that resolution I've also decided that I should use my stamps more. There are some stamp sets that I got last year that haven't seen the light of day yet, and I don't like that. I will keep trying to find time to create cards with older sets and try to add Spanish sentiments to them too.

This particular card was fun to make but I had to experiment about three times until I got the result I wanted. This set has many, many combination options and the stamped images are just stunning. I paired the floral images with a Spanish sentiment from Stampendous, that I heat embossed on vellum.

I haven't made a bright floral card in a while, but I love how this one turned out and I think it's perfect for Spring. I hope you enjoyed today's post! For more ideas make sure you visit my galleries listed above (on my blog header tabs).

I will be back soon with more to share with you! Have a great day.

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 …
