White on white

Hello everybody! How are you doing? Can you belive we are already in the last days of September? I think this month just flew by. 

The card I'm about to show you is different (in several ways) than the cards you normally see on my blog. First of all, it doesn't contain any stamped images. And second of all - it's all white. I've always admired those completely white cards, because I think they look really elegant, but I've always been "afraid" to make myself. But the other day I saw there was a "white on white" challenge, and I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try to make a white Christmas card. 

My original plan was to make a white Christmas card and then just emboss a nice (Christmas) sentiment with the golden embossing powder on it. Well, that plan failed as soon as I wanted to do some stamping, because my embossing stamp pad was completely dry. So I put my thinking cap on and started looking for solution. I thought of a Stampin up rub ons that I've had in my stash for quite a while and decided to use the "joy" sentiment as the center of my card. I glued some small pearls over it. As you can see I used two different enbossing folders and corrugated cardstock to get some lovely textures on my card. I used foam pads between the layers for some extra dimension. I finished the card off with some die cuts, lace and some extra pearls.

So much from me today. Have a lovely day! xx

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges: 
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge: Anything Christmas goes (+ optional: include the word joy)
Word art Wednesday: Anything goes (with sentiment)

Hello, lovely people! How are you? Ready for the weekend? I sure am. I just want to stay home and relax. 

Today I would like to share with you a card I made for my friend's birthday. She's a cat person so I knew that this Wild rose studio image is perfect for the card I was making for her.

For a change I coloured the image with distress inks. I used beautiful papers from Craft and you and some gorgeous flowers from I am roses (+ some from my stash) to decorate the card. I stamped the sentiment and then went over it with Sakura gel pen to make it more sparkly.

So much for today. Have a beautiful day! xx
