Autumnal Inspiration - Classy Cards 'n Such

Hello! Today I want to share what I made for this week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such: Trees and/or Fall Foliage (Use trees and or fall leaves, plants). I enjoyed using earthy tones and lots of texture to make my card... It is truly an Autumn inspired creation.

I used mostly Spellbinders dies to make this card. First I die cut a bunch of leaves with Bitty Blossoms, from different cardstocks, which included Echo - Bronze Stardream Metallic. I colored a couple of leaves with Yellow Gold Inka Gold. Also, I die cut some Pine leaves with Poppy Stamps' Pine Garland. Next I die cut an oval with Elegant Oval from Echo - Bronze Stardream Metallic and a smaller label with Fancy Label Tags One. I heat embossed a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs' Faith stamp set in Gold detail on the smaller label. I mounted the labels and added all the leaves to one side, framing the sentiment.

I did leave a space between both tags so I could run through a piece of ribbon. But before adhering it all to the card base, I added a piece of tan burlap ribbon, that gives lots of texture to the design. I die cut the card base using A2 Matting Basics A. I finished the card with two Baby Rhinestones - Silver.

I hope you like my card! Remember that most of the supplies used are available at Classy Cards 'n Such Store. Click on the links to be directed to the store. And if you do purchase, use the code Gracie-10 during checkout, and you'll get a 10% discount!

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…
