HIMCR05NSD - Thank You

Hello again! This is the last challenge of the day on Hiding in my Craft Room, the Design Team has made a great effort and has had a lot of fun creating all these projects and celebrating National Scrapbooking Day. I'm so glad you could stop by every hour to check out our work and our challenges.

And to close this celebration, we want to say thank you to all of you for your support and kind comments. Also, our last challenge is to create a thank you card or gift.

The sponsor is 
A Day for Daisies

A lucky winner will receive
a $12 Gift Certificate to their store!

I had the chance to use one of their gorgeous images, Vintage Poppy Cluster. So nice to work with! Please take a look at what I created with it:

A Day for Daisies - Vintage Poppy Cluster
Stampendous - Spanish Grettings
- Large Labels
- Grand Large Labels
- Gold Labels Four
- Ornamental Iron embossing folder
- Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Spectrum Noir markers - Reds
Staedtler markers - light brown
Ranger Distress ink in Old Paper
Merletto crystals
Bazic two sided tape and foam tape
Other generic materials
Textured cardstock in light brown and red
Eggshell cardstock in white
Feuille cardstock in sand beige
3/8" gross grain ribbon in light brown
1/4" gold edge satin ribbon in old gold
Vintage button

This is an A2 gate card with a thank you tag included in a hidden pocket. I started by dry embossing the card base front (both sides of the gate). I layered it with three Classic Labels and two Gold Labels Four on the right. I used the 'out of the box' techique with the top layer, so some petals and stems were left outside the label. When adhering this last layer, I left one side unattached so that I could use that space as a pocket for my tag. All these layers were adhered to the top side of the gate, so to speak. I added some crystals, ribbon, and a double bow with a vintage button to finish my design.

I hope you  like my card and that you can join at least one of our NSD challenges. They will be open for a week, so you have time to link up your project!

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…
