LOVE nature 18

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I joined along with the Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 16:
For theme inspiration, I joined along with the current Our Creative Corner challenge where we are challenged to create a project based on Magical Nature Moments:
I scrapped a photo that was taken about 15 years ago when I was hiking with my children in Allegany State Park located in upstate New York where I used to live:
Using the layering stencil: embossing technique I added lots of gold shimmery detail to the background using the Tim's Burlap stencil:
I'm lovin' all the new metallic Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain. The flowers, gears and leaves were all colorized using various metallic Distress Spray Stains:

The die cut foliage was made using Grunge paper, coated with Gesso followed with Distress Crackle Paint then Distress Spray Stains. I think the Crackle Paint is too old because it didn't leave a nice crackle effect :(
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the My Scraps and More Sketches sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! With Christmas right around the corner, I've been on a Christmas card / tag making roll. Today I have a collection of Christmas cards and tags to share featuring a combination of pretty papers from the Pion Design My Beloved Son and Siri's Kitchen collections along with sweet images from Grandma's Attic. Although all four cards and two tags are similar, no two are the same.
I layered each darling image on an ornate die cut piece that was cut using various Spellbinders dies:
I stamped various PTI sentiments:



I completed three of the four with a bow, glitter kissed rose and a set of jingle bells:

Next up, are a few tags that were made using a combination of all that was used for making the cards:
I'm entering these tags in the Scrap Africa challenge where the challenge is to create at least two tags:


For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with Freshly Made Sketches:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the card Concept challenge rolling with a Shabby Chic theme:
I'm also entering the cards in the Merry Monday challenge where the them is to create a card featuring Christmas Bells:
