It's a Celebration! Join the fun with Got Joy Creations + Giveaways!

I have the honor of joining today a friend and crafter who represents the joy with not only her name but with everything she is! She sparkles joy with everything she shares and today she's celebrating her blog anniversary with a blog hop and lots of giveaways! Again, I'm thrilled that she thought of me and decided to invite me to her celebration!

Each of the designers today will be sharing a project inspired on a technique Dana has posted a video of... Yes, she has an awesome YouTube channel with lots of tutorials! I love her backgrounds... She always comes up with the coolest ideas for backgrounds and I actually have been into experimenting with techniques for backgrounds myself. So I thought I would go precisely for that! Oh, and she also loves all things donuts, sprinkles and such (so much fun)!

My card is colorful, donut inspired and sparkly... Just the way Dana loves her cards! I have to admit, everytime I eat a donut with sprinkles I think of her! "All things happy" is our moto! Ok, so, over to my card.

This polka dot background is not only multicolor, it's also foil dipped! I made a video tutorial recently on this technique...

Making this card also inspired me to make those cute donut cards you see on the pictures too! But I will be sharing that tutorial on another post very soon!  

Thank you Dana for your invitation! I had so much fun and it makes me truly happy to celebrate with you! Now it's time to hop along! Here are all the other blogs participating today!

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 …
