Layers & Layers
handmade card with unity stamp co.

Our family is starting a new stage, with my son entering kintergarden. With it comes a new routine that each of us needs to adapt to. I am spending much more time taking care of my loved ones and in consequence I haven't been around here much. Still I do take advantage of the few moments I have available to create a few things! Today I'm sharing a card with lots and lots of layers and delicate embellishments.

The layers on this 5" by 7" card were cut from metallic, linen and leather textured cardstock. The inspiring verse stamp is from my new set Praise the Lord by Unity Stamp Company (check it out here).

This verse has inspired me since I was very young, and I'm glad to have the chance to inspire others stamping it on a card. I also used one of the lovely patterned papers from my Keys & Roses digital set. I will be updating my digital shop here on the blog soon!

Hope you enjoyed today's post! I would love to hear about you and your latest projects. Do you like to add a lot of layers to your cards?

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!

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 …
