Birthday Giveaway

Hello and welcome to my birthday post! Today I want to share with you my recent achievement designing a digital paper pack. I have been a fan of digital designer paper because of how practical it is. I love floral images and soft feminine colors so that is what you can expect from my designs. I will be releasing a new set soon, and hopefully I will be able to concrete a collection of sets before the year ends. Right now you will find my set Tea Rose available through Paypal here on my blog, but of course a spot on Etsy is on the horizon. 

The set Tea Rose, was designed in honor of my shabby chic blog. The patterns of these papers are very soft pink, they have a Victorian feel to it and are very versatile. The set includes not only papers but also some lovely matching cliparts. Each paper is 3600 x 3600, and print neatly. I am a cardmaker and I would only offer something I could work with, and this is becoming one of my favorite sets (and I have many). So I only wish you like it too, and that you may see yourself using these romantic papers in some of your creations.

So, let's talk giveaway please! Since it's my birthday and I was able to make of one of my personal little artistic dreams a reality, I am giving away a set to one lucky winner. All you need to do is leave a comment below this post and if possible share the giveaway poster shown above on your blog's sidebar.

This is a new born business and it needs all the support possible, so I'd be glad if you'd help me spread the word. In any case, I know the Lord is behind my hopes and dreams and He will open a way so I can continue to share my creativity with all of you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always, I wish you a wonderful weekend.

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…
