True Friendship Card with Tonic and Tim Holtz Dies

Hi friends, 
So you know how I love to make all those detailed little embellishments? Well this is why!
I also adore making cards for people I love, whether they be family, friends, or "new friends",lol!
This is when the embellishments come in handy, as I can incorporate them to my cards and make them look unique and different!
Here I made a card for a new friend, and I used some of my favorite products!
Above, you can see that I added the small camera from Tim Holtz for Sizzix, and a Tonic Studios stamp in the center that reads: True Friendship Lasts Forever
I also completed the embellishment with a raffia rosette, and scattered pearls and sequins for a spakly effect.

The small stamped image is from Santoro London Gorguss Girls, and I cannot express how much I love using these little girls every chance I get! I colored her using Nuvo Markers and Gelly Roll pen for additional shine. 
Layering the diecut papers allowed me to frame the image without taking away from the coloring, and I also framed it with handmade flowers that matched my card perfectly!
The gorgeous card base is made with Tonic's Memory Book Collection dies, and it lends a book-style front to this large card that makes a big impact even though the colors and textures throughout are all soft.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post today, and if you like to take a peek at more detail, watch me make this card here!
Be inspired, Be blessed!~Raquel

My Book of Special Memories Mini Album with Tonic Studios Dies

Hi friends,  I am here with a brand new set of dies from Tonic Studios and yet another adorable mini album! This one is perfect for a little girl, a mother of a little girl, or a cat lover, or all of the above! I am thrilled with this collection of dies, and how easily I am able to put paper on pages to assemble the perfect little personalized gift!

On the cover, and throughout, I have used the  CUTE GIRL collection from Crate Paper. As a cat-lover, I could not resist, and the floral designs were easy to repeat with the layered Tonic die-cut that I assembled and colored using Nuvo Pens and Nuvo Glitter pen. The little roses all have some sparkle!

The cluster of flowers is all handmade by yours truly, and I used Sizzix Dies by Tim Holtz, felt, and small pearls that I stitched together.  The cat, butterfly, and flower buttons helped me complete the look. Adorable!!

The spine of a book is equally as important as the front. So for this, I used all the little strips left over from my favor…

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!
