New Technique Video: Mottled Foil Backgrounds for Cards with Mixed Media Foils & Foam Sheets

Today I have a video tutorial to share using new products from Rebekah Meier Designs line for Therm O Web to create a mixed media butterfly card. I'm also going to be showing you how to make a mottled foil background for your handmade cards with the new Mixed Media Foam Sheets and Foils! This technique is super easy, doesn't require a laminator and it will make your backgrounds pop every time.


Click here to visit Therm O Web and watch the video tutorial. A complete list of supplies is included also. You'll find that this technique is not only different but also very easy to incorporate on your projects! Rebekah Meier's line can be mixed and matched with Therm O Web's original Mixed Media Line to create the most unique effects!

Add-on: Butterflies used are from digital stamp set Persevere.

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.

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…
