Tone on Tone Stamping & Coloring - Stunning Mason Jar Bouquet Stamps

Today I'm sharing my first card using one of Sweet 'n Sassy's new stamp set Mason Jar Bouquet! This set is so pretty, so versatile and is perfect for coloring.

I stamped the flowers in hot pink dye ink and colored them in the same color, to create a tone on tone effect. I have been using watercolor markers to color a lot lately and I've also been drawn to bright, summer colors. I watercolored this flowers in hot pink using very little water and added a fresh green on the leaves. I decided they would look great with a few green leaf die cuts. I used foam squares to give them dimension.

The sentiments in this set are so beautiful, a very nice font and size. I was able to stamp this Mother's Day greeting  in black, on one side of the die cut panel matching the rest of the card design.

The images are so striking and pretty I really didn't need to do much for my card base. I just die cut a large intricate panel, cut it in half and layered the pieces creating a lace border like design. Details such as the black and silver Reversible Satin Ribbon and pearls tie the card together.

I hope you enjoyed today's post! Make sure to stop by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps today to check out this and other new clear stamp sets available now. Until next time.

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…
