I know it’s been a long time since I posted, but real life got very busy.
I just wanted to mention that I am currently taking the Heat Wave Class over on OnlineCardClasses; I recommend it if you want to want to learn how to really use your embossing powders the best way possible.
My mother had some friends over for lunch today and I decided to create some table placeholders with my Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and some Simon Says Stamps.
I also used what I’ve learned with the Brush Letter Practice Guide* from Random Olive. I always admired the brush lettering I saw on Instagram and now… I feel capable of at least try to do something and I’m not even done with the Guide yet! 🙂
I hope you like it and I promise I’ll be back soon!

Today’s card is a THANK YOU card!
I want to thank all of you for watching my videos so I hope you enjoy this one.
First of all, I’m sorry to say that my MacBook Pro decided the last 2 videos I had recorded on my camera were not good enough for it so I couldn’t transfer them, but…
I have pictures!
The first card, I did with a foiling technique. I used watercolors and produced a red background that I scanned. After that, I printed a free digital stamp from Winnie & Walter (here) with my brand new toner printer. I took some gold DecoFoil from Thermoweb and used my laminator on it.
When it comes out, you end up with a beautiful background as you can see. I died cut the word “adorable” from black cardstock I had put Stick-It on with a Metaliks die and then made a small banner. I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.
On the second card, I used a technique shown in the last Online Card Classes: Background Check by Debbie Hughes. I made my own diffusers for the embossing folders. It’s definitely something that I will do again. I used the Honeycomb embossing folder from Tim Holtz.
I stamped two images from the Circle Friends stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and colored the bee with Copic. Then I just glued some gold sequins using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
Hope you liked them and I’ll be back next week!
I made the card using Distress Markers. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for watching!
The two cards I will be sharing this week were made with friends on my mind.
Today’s card is dedicated to a friend of mine who helped me out last week with some work problem that could have become a nightmare, she made it easy and for that, she deserved a card!
I hope you like it and I will see you with a new card on Thursday.
Today I have a card that I will be able to send to either a Spanish or an English friend… ADORABLE is the perfect word.
I used 5 different colors of embossing powder on vellum and I really like how it looks, I hope you do too!
