Card - Time to Celebrate!

Hi! Welcome to my blog!

It's been a long time since I last posted a new project (although I've been making them!) and I feel totally out of rhythm here! But...I hope that it will all come back to me and that I'll manage to post everything new that I have. 

Today I have a new card, which combines some of my favorite techniques, like ink blending, embossing, use of vellum and a seam binding bow! It is quite easy to make, and it is a card that can be used for many festive occasions like birthdays, name days,  anniversaries, graduations and more!
So, if you like it don't hesitate to try making it!

For the background, I used the background stamp with embossing ink and then I embossed it with golden embossing powder. Then, I used three distress inks (mustard seed, wild honey and aged mahogany) to create the ombre effect using the Ranger's round ink blending tools.

I cut a strip of vellum to use as banner, I stamped my sentiment with black archival ink on the vellum and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I've placed it on my background panel, folded it over the edges and adhered it at the backside. This way the glue doesn't show through the vellum. 

Then, I made a double bow with seam binding ribbon at matching color and adhered it on the vellum banner.

Finally, to embellish it a little more, I placed some pearl gems close to the sentiment. I adhered the main card panel to a white card base and my card was ready! Quite easy, isn't it?!

I hope you like my new card. Thank you for visiting my blog, I'll be happy to get your comments!

Happy new year & happy February!

Dear friends, hi!

I know that I'm a total month late but I've just popped in to wish you all Happy New Year and happy February!

January was a month full of extra obligations for me & unfortunately I didn't have the time and mood for blog posting. However, I did manage to create a little bit and I'll soon share my creations with you, so stay tuned!

I'm also experimenting on video-shooting my creation processes, which is really fun as I'm not a crafting expert (not even close!) and many funny & grotesque things happen when I'm shooting. I hope I'll be ready to share my videos with you soon. 

Until then, I wish you all a really happy and creative February!!!
