The Card Concept Winner

Hello everyone! I am not so excited today because of so much back pain... GOODNESS! But there´s always a good reason to get up. I really wanted to come here and share with you some good news. Today I was picked a Winner on the Card Concept Blog by one of the designers: Ardith. THANK YOU Ardith! I really needed this motivation today.

This is the winner card:


 I appreciate the DT's encouraging comments, and also the wonderful girls' comments that were before and after my participating cards, some of them are my bloggy friends now.

Some other good news that Blogger vanished from my entries and that had to be published yesterday, is that I won random on two other blogs, the first one: Sweet & Sassy Stamps. I absolutely love their stamps and I am so pleased that I won, I could pick up some goodies I had on my wish list!!! And then another prize at DisDigi Designs, a voucher for Marker Pop store. I didn't know this place but they have an amazing variety of crafty things and amazing low prize dies (Xcut dies). Really, go check them out! I preordered some new dies that aren't in the market yet, so that should arrive on my birthday (on May, JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA). I have to be patient, my purchases ship twice, first to Florida and then to my country. 

So I guess my luck is improving, lol. And I am about to get a little prize from Avocado Stamps that I won on the Season's Blog Hop (remember that one?). To know about that click here.

I am planning some projects, I hope I can post them soon. Have a great day. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Before we go into today's giveaways details, I would love to share the first card I made with my new rubber stamp sets! This is one of my favorite flowers in the collection and I had to play with it right away! This set is called Amazing Things and it includes beautiful inspirational sentiments.

I stamped the flowers in black, using Umbrella Crafts Premium Dye Ink and colored the image with Spectrum Noir Makers Purples and Reds. I fussy cut the images using Westcott's Titanium Bonded Microtip Precision Scissors (…

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…
