A Blessed Thanksgiving to You
Fall inspired card with deco foil

Today I'm sharing a very layered  Thanksgiving card, in Fall colors and with lots of little leaves in different colors and even some gold foiled ones.

I used a beautiful Fall themed paper pad from my stash that had just the perfect tones and patterns for this card. I have been planning this card for a week or two now, so I am glad with how it turned out! I die cut many, many tiny leaves from Impression Obsession from white cardstock, sponged them with Distress Inks in Vintage photo, Old Paper and Peeled Paint and sprayed them with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz from Imagine Crafts. I die cut other leaves with adhesive sheet and foiled them with iCraft Decofoil in Gold.

I layered a few other beautiful dies from Spellbinders and Poppystamps and added a piece of gold ribbon and glittered gold lace to finish off my design.

I hope you are inspired by today's post! Thanks for stopping by!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

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 …
