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!)

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…
