Let's Hear it for the Boy

Hello! It is Saturday already and that means it's time for a new challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room, HIMCR #150: "Let's hear it for the Boy".

Our sponsor this week is:
One lucky winner will receive 
two digital images.

Their images are adorable, and I had the chance to work with a cute little digi called Sherlock Mouse.

Spellbinders: Classic Circle Small, Gold Elements One, French Frills, Venetian embossing folder, Grand Calibur die cutting machine.
Inks: Distress inks in Old paper and Vintage Photo, Brilliance Tiramisu, Colorbox in Frost White
Spectrum Noir Markers - Essentials
Embossing powder in Copper
Merletto: Crystals, paper cord
Bazic two sided tape and foam tape
Other generic materials
Feuille cardstock in sand beige
Textured cardstock in brown
Linen cardstock in white

The image was colored with markers, die cut and layered on a faux letterpressed piece of cardstock. I also sponged irregularly the letterpressed layer with some white ink and it gives the card a grungy look. I wrapped the card vertically with paper cord and tied a little bow. Finally I heat embossed a sentiment in Spanish on a two toned tag that is also decorated with paper cord.

I hope you can join us this week with a male card. All you need to do is visit Hiding in my Craft Room and link up your creation.

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…
