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:

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
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 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…
