Fresh & Fruity with Sunny Studio Stamps
- Fun Summer Card Ideas -

Summer crafts can be so fun, especially with the sweet images from Sunny Studio Stamps. Today I'm sharing 3 cards I created with stamps from the set Fresh & Fruity... It's so fun and versatile! My favorite thing about these stamps is all the options you get so you can add little faces and other details to your images.





I created patterned backgrounds with the fun fruit images which I heat embossed in glitter gold and white. I went for an ombre look on 2 cards and I decided to watercolor the strawberries on my first card with distress inks. I also foiled the edges on my second card and discover the Thermoweb's Champagne transfer foil matches perfectly the tone of gold on Clearsnap's Glitter Gold embossing powder.


Sunny Studio Stamps has a brand new release and I already picked my favorites! They also have fun, versatile dies that go along perfect with their sweet stamps. Make sure you head to their blog (that will be featuring my cards today) and shop to check out their collection. If you stop by the blog I invite you to leave Mendi (the designer behind all these sweet stamps) a comment too!

That's it for now. Hope you are enjoying your Summer so far! Until next time... Stay crafty.

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…
