A Blessed Thanksgiving to You
Fall inspired card with deco foil

Today I'm sharing a very layered  Thanksgiving card, in Fall colors and with lots of little leaves in different colors and even some gold foiled ones.

I used a beautiful Fall themed paper pad from my stash that had just the perfect tones and patterns for this card. I have been planning this card for a week or two now, so I am glad with how it turned out! I die cut many, many tiny leaves from Impression Obsession from white cardstock, sponged them with Distress Inks in Vintage photo, Old Paper and Peeled Paint and sprayed them with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz from Imagine Crafts. I die cut other leaves with adhesive sheet and foiled them with iCraft Decofoil in Gold.

I layered a few other beautiful dies from Spellbinders and Poppystamps and added a piece of gold ribbon and glittered gold lace to finish off my design.

I hope you are inspired by today's post! Thanks for stopping by!

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…
