Conffeti Card

Hi there! Have you ever seen a see through card? LOL. As redundant as that sounds, today I'm posting another of those crazy ideas I come up with. I'm constantly challenging myself, specially now with the blog, to create different sort of things. I do have inspiration sources like everyone, but I don't like to copy things. I did replicate when I first discovered card making, to practice and learn. But now it is different. Another thing that forces me to create versatile designs, is that I do not own as plenty of crafty products as I would like, or like many or most crafters have. We don't have craft stores here, like there are in other countries. There's basically one boutique that carries some products and not all are new releases. Anyways...

Let's get back to the card! This is the second birthday card I create for Hero Arts, this time for their challenge's rainbow category. I have had the idea for this card for days now. And thankfully, it worked. Check it out:



Materials
Spellbinders: A2 Matting Basics, Blossom
Ranger Distress ink in: Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Barn Door, Embossing Ink.
Stampendous: Spanish Greetings
Inkadinkado embossing powder in red (ends up like a darker tone of pink)
Wow Heat Tool
Merletto Confetti
Cre-a 7/8" pink ribbon
Bazic double sided tape
Grand Calibur Die Cutting Machine
Other generic materials
Heavyweight white cardstock
Vellum
Plastic Bag


Let me tell you that the card is quite firm, and the best of it is all that confetti moving inside the transparent pocket. I really like this flower shape confetti. The card overall makes me smile...

Please let me know what you think, I would like to hear your feedback.

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 you HERE . 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 h

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha
