For a baby girl


J'ai fait cette carte pour des amis qui viennent d'avoir une fille. L'image est un tampon digital que j'ai dans mes archives depuis 2010, la page sur laquelle je l'ai téléchargée n'existe malheureusement plus... J'ai  colorié l'image aux promarkers, puis je l'ai découpée aux ciseaux de précision et je l'ai surélevée grâce à de l'adhésif 3D. Le texte a été découpé avec ma silhouette cameo, en trois exemplaires que j'ai collés les uns sur les autres pour plus de volume. Le fond est un très joli embossage reçu lors d'un swap, je n'ai aucune idée de la marque du classeur d'embossage...

I've made this card for friends who've just had a baby girl. The image is a digital stamp, I've had it in my archives since 2010 and the page on which I downloaded it does no more exist... I colored the image with promarkers, then cut it with precision scissors and adhered it with foam tape. The sentiment was cut using my silhouette cameo, I cut the words three times and glued them one on top of the other to make it thicker. I received the lovely embossed background during a swap, so no idea of the brand.

I would like to submit my card to the following challenges : Pumpkin Spice (children), Speedy Fox and Friends (CAS), We Do Doodaboo (add texture : embossed background, ribbon, cut image raised with foam tape, cut words raised by glueing several layers), Eureka Stamps (CAS), Stamp And Create (anything goes), Paper Makeup (embossing).

Another LOTV Christmas card


Je suis en plein dans les cartes de Noël... chaque année je suis en panique juste avant Noël parce qu'il m'en manque, donc chaque année à la fin de l'été je décide que cette fois-ci je ne me ferai pas avoir :) L'image est un tampon de Lili Of The Valley, colorié aux promarkers, et la "ficelle" est un ruban de raphia que j'ai torsadé. 

Yet another Christmas card... I'm trying to get those made early, because each year just before Christmas I nearly panick when I count how many I need :) The image is a stamp from Lili Of The Valley, colored with promarkers. The "twine" is in fact a rafia ribbon that I twisted.

I would like to submit my card to the following challenges : LOTV Ideas To Inspire (Christmas in August), Simon Says Stamp (anything goes), Fitztown (wet or dry embossing, mine is dry for the woodgrain background), Sweet Stampin Christmas (gifts galore), Penny's (Christmas, Children or Critters), Creative Card Crew (embossing), Crafty Girls (anything goes), Eclectic Paperie (embossing), Southern Girls (texture).

Christmas fun



J'ai fait cette carte pour le challenge "Digital" chez The Paper Shelter : l'image est un tampon digital de The Paper Shelter, coloriée aux promarkers. Le fond est un papier digital de chez Bird's cards et le flocon de neige est découpé à l'aide d'un fichier de découpe de chez Bird's cards également.

I made this card for The Paper Shelter challenge, the theme is "digital". The image is a digital stamp from The Paper Shelter, the background paper is a digital paper from Bird's cards and the swirly snowflake was cut using a digital cut file from Bird's cards too.
I would also like to enter my card in the following challenges : Completely Christmas (anything goes), Winter Wonderland (anything goes for Xmas), A Little Bit Crafty (sew what? it does not show very well on the picture but the background paper is machine-stitched to its matting), Christmas All Year Round (sparkle & shine : the nail heads on the corners are really sparkly IRL!), Mema's Craft (anything goes), Sparkles (Christmas in July), Sparkles Christmas (snowflakes).

Have A Beary Christmas


Une petite carte toute simple avec un tampon Lili Of The Valley, colorié aux promarkers et détouré aux ciseaux de précision. Le grelot fonctionne pour de vrai, c'est rigolo de faire du bruit en secouant la carte!

A very simple card with a Lili Of The Valley stamp, that I colored with promarkers and fussy cut with precison scissors. The little bell actually works, it's so fun to hear the sound when shaking the card!
I would like to submit my card to the following challenges : Winter Wonderland (anything goes for Xmas), The Artistic Stamper (anything goes), Sparkles (Christmas in July), A Gem Of A Challenge (embossing : dry embossing on the background), Christmas Card (embellish it : the bell), and of course Lili Of The Valley (Christmas in August).

Teddy with bouquet



J'avais fait les fleurs en papier il y a quelque temps, me disant que je les utiliserais bien un jour (fichiers de découpe de Bird's cards pour les roses jaunes, perforatrice manuelle pour la fleur bleue). Et bien voilà, j'ai fini par les utiliser! L'image est un tampon Lili Of The Valley, coloriée aux promarkers. La découpe sur laquelle l'image est posée est une adaptation d'un fichier de découpe de Bird's cards. J'ai passé un ruban de raphia dans les découpes pour ajouter un peu de texture. 

I had created the paper flowers quite a while agao, thinking that one day I would use them. Well, it took some time, but I did use them! (the yellow roses are made using a cut file from Bird's cards, the blue flower is made using a standard punch). The image is a stamp from Lili Of The Valley, that I colored with promarkers. The brown doily is adapted from a cut file from Bird's cards. I used a raffia ribbon to thread through the doily and give a bit more texture...
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges : Craft for the Craic (an item you have never used before : my raffia ribbon was brand new!), Live And Love Crafts (stitching - mine is machine stitching), Nathalie and Amy (die cuts and flowers : I have used my silhouette cameo and a  manual punch, but the leaves and the circle for the main image are die cut), Crafting At The Weekend (anything goes), Suzy Bee's (anything goes), Pile It On (stitching), A Little Bit Crafty (sew what?).
