Mixed Media Card with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

If you follow me on social media you know that lately I have been playing with some mixed media and making fun backgrounds. Today I am sharing card for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps using one of those backgrounds I came up with.


This fun and colorful background started out as a way to try out some Mixed Media Sheets and I instantly became addicted to the sheets and got all my mixed media supplies out. I really wanted to use this background for a card so I decided to stamp and color these flowers from my stamp set for SNSS Floral Greetings. I watercolored them with Zig markers and wasn't careful about it because I wanted the coloring to match the playful background.

I decided to add stamped words here and there to the background using new stamps from the set Words of Life: Actions using Mix'd Media Inx. A torned piece of fuscia cardstock brings together all the elements just as a piece of ribbon would. To finish the card I stamped and heat embossed in clear a sentiment from Floral Greetings on vellum.


This card has inks, ink sprays, acrylic and tempera paints, watercolor markers and even a touch of foil. There is really a bit of everything on it and I love how it turned out. It was lots of fun to make and I know I will be trying it out again!

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 …

I colored the back of the vellum with magenta using a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

The sentiment was also foiled on whi…
