Butterfly Blessings / Bendiciones de Mariposa / Bênçãos de Borboleta

Hi everyone!

The card for today is quite simple, clean and elegant. A feminine butterfly card with a sentiment in spanish: "God bless you". I wanted to try a multicolor embossing technique, using different colors of embossing powder in the same image. So I used silver, gold and copper. Afterwards I colored parts of the butterflies with two tones of pink to give it a twist and show the stamp's details. I really like how it ended up. 

It is an easy card to make, because it doesn't require too much die cutting and layering. The only tricky part is the application of the embossing powders, since you have to be quick. Once applied to one part of the stamped image, you must put away that remainder powder and apply the next color immediately, and heat embossed. So if you're not careful, it can be very messy! lol

Anyways, hope you enjoy this card. I'll come back soon with some DIY ideas I've been working on. Until then...

¡Hola a todos!

La tarjeta para hoy es algo simple, limpia y elegante. Una tarjeta femenina de mariposas con un mensaje en español: "Que Dios te bendiga". Quería tratar una técnica multicolor de grabado, usando diferentes colores de polvos en la misma imagen. Entonces usé plateado, dorado y cobre. Después pinté partes de las mariposas con dos tonos de rosados para darle un giro y mostrar los detalles del sello. Me gustó mucho el resultado.

Es una tarjeta fácil de hacer, porque no requiere tantos cortes y capas. La única parte complicada es la aplicación de los polvos de relieve, ya que tienes que ser muy rápido. Una vez aplicado a una parte de la imagen sellada, debes guardar el restante del polvo y aplicar el siguiente color inmediatamente y sellarlo con calor. ¡Por lo que si no lo haces con cuidado, puede ser muy desastroso! lol

Bueno, espero que disfruten esta tarjeta. Yo volveré pronto con unas ideas DIY (hazlo tu mismo) en las que he estado trabajando. Hasta entonces...

Olá a todos!

O cartão para hoje é algo simples, limpo e elegante. Um cartão femenino de borboletas com uma mensagem em espanhol: "Que Deus te abençoe". Quería tentar uma técnica multicor de gravação, usando diferentes cores de pós na mesma imagem. Então usei prateado, dourado y cobre. Depois pintei partes das borboletas com dois tons de rosa para dar um toque diferente e mostrar os detalhes do carimbo. Gostei muito do resultado.

É um cartão fácil de fazer, porque não precisa de tantos cortes e camadas de papel. A única parte complicada é a aplicacão dos pós, ja que deve ser muito rápido. Uma vez aplicado a uma parte da imagem carimbada, se deve guardar o restante do pó e aplicar a seguinte cor imediatamente e selá-lo com calor. Se voçê não faz com cuidado, poder ser muito desastroso! lol

Enão bem, espero que gostem deste cartão. Eu voltarei em breve com umas ideias DIY (faça você mesmo) em que tenho trabalhado. Até então...

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…
