Shadow Stenciling with Deco Foil using a new TCW Stencil + Giveaway & Challenge

I'm glad to be back with a new tutorial for The Crafter's Workshop. I've been playing with lots of new stencil designs TCW sent me, trying out techniques and having fun! Today I'll be showing you how to create a shadow stenciled background with inks and Deco Foil!

Products used for this post were sent by TCW Stencils and Therm O Web.
 Nevertheless, all opinions shared here are my own.

Another great thing about today's post is that I'll be sharing my card with the Word Art Wednesday Challenge together with my dear friend Karen Letchworth and many other talented designers. I am sponsoring a prize this time and all you need to do for a chance to win is join their challenge! It is always anything goes and it runs for 2 weeks, so I'm sure you'll find time to join the fun!



Tutorial
If you like this card be sure to stop by TCW Stencils Blog for the step by step tutorial! This background really only takes 3 to 4 steps to make and who doesn't love a beautiful foil finished card? Leave me a comment letting me know what you think about this shadow effect technique using Deco Foil! Oh, and what do you think about this beautiful new stencil, huh? It's called Celtic Design and it is available in 6 x 6" and 12 x 12" (which tempts me to try out a canvas)!


I went for a copper and teal color combination for this card and I think the softness of the colors and the elegance of the foil go very well with this week's verse at Word Art Wednesday! The verse is free for you, just visit WAW's blog to download it. As for the florals, those are from a new digital stamp set called This Season, available on my Etsy shop today.

That's it for now. Don't forget to enter your card to WAW's Challenge for a chance to win a prize to my digital shop! Reshare today's post on social media so your friends can check out this tutorial too!

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 …
