Inspiration Blog Hop + Sale + DT Call & Winner

Inspiration abounds in our design team, and that is why we host a second blog hop each month to bring you new project ideas using new stamps from our digital shop. Have you visited the shop yet? We have been adding beautiful collections and I know you will find something perfect just for you! This month we released 4 stamp duo sets that the team and I have enjoyed working with because of all the possibilities, combining the images or using them on their own. For today's card I'm using digital stamps from Sending Kindness...




This card could easily become a wedding card, because of the elegant foiled finishes. Adding deco foil to my digital stamps has been one of my favorite techniques since day one. I printed the flowers in laser and foiled them with different tones of gold deco foil: Champagne, Rose Gold and Amber Watercolor. I also added a rustic foiled touch to the edges of the sentiment frame using a Tape Runner XL. Of course I did print and foiled the sentiment too and added it on a lace textured patterned paper from DCWV. To add a coordinating finish to the vellum flowers I colored them from the back with a matching beige alcohol marker. (That always makes a difference!)

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…

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…
