All stars



J'ai fait cette carte dans le cadre d'un défi sur Cards and Stamps Addicts, où il fallait utiliser des étoiles... J'ai découpé mon étoile à la silhouette cameo, à l'aide d'un fichier de découpe de chez Bird's cards. Le texte est également découpé à la silhouette.

This is a card I made for a challenge on a French forum called Cards and Stamps Addicts ; the challenge was to create a card with stars. There must be something in the air, because it's also a star challenge over at Simon Says Stamp! The star was cut using my silhouette cameo and a cut file from Bird's cards. The sentiment is also cut using my precious silhouette.

Quilled snowflake card


Une nouvelle carte de voeux... J'ai utilisé un flocon de neige en quilling, que j'avais fait avec du papier blanc mais dont j'ai repassé les bords avec un stylo gel doré. Le papier de fond, même si cela ne se voit pas à la photo, a également des reflets dorés : une carte à la fois simple et bling! Le texte est découpé à la Silhouette Cameo dans du papier blanc, colorié avec le même stylo que le flocon.

Another holiday card... I used a quilled snowflake that I had originally quilled with white paper, but I colored the edges with a gold gel pen. The paper is also glowing gold, even if you can't see it in the picture: I managed a card both simple and bling! The text is cut with a Silhouette Cameo and means Happy Holidays : I cut it in white paper and colored it gold with the same pen I used for the snowflake.

I would like to submit my card to the following challenges : Challenge Up Your Life (anything goes), Crafty Calendar (it's all about Christmas : Christmas is implicitely included in the "Joyeuses Fêtes" sentiment), Digi Designs (colors of automn : brown, gold, red), Inkspiration (shine : both the gold pen I used for the snowflake and sentiment, and the woodgrain paper, are shiny), Paper Creators (anything goes), Suzy Bee (make it male : even if there is a lot of shine, I still consider the simplicity of the layout as masculine), Treasured Times (anything goes) and Vandicrafts (anything goes).

Throwback... an old card I like!



Bibiana nous demande, dans son Throwback Thursday, de faire revivre un vieux projet. Ceci est la carte de Noël que j'avais faite pour mon père en 2012... J'adore, quand je vais chez mes parents, la revoir bien en évidence dans la bibliothèque! Pour voir mon post initial, c'est ici.

Bibiana is asking us, in her Throwback Thursday Challenge, to revive an old project. This is a card I made for my father for Christmas in 2012. I love, when I go to my parent's place, seeing that it is still proudly presented on their bookshelf. My old post is here.

Pretty Christmas helper


J'ai reçu ce tampon en cadeau de la part de Jacque : c'est un tampon caoutchouc d'après un dessin de Mi Ran, dans la marque Treasured Times. Je l'ai tamponné à l'encre marron, je l'ai détouré aux ciseaux de précision et colorié aux promarkers, en repassant les contours des yeux au feutre fin noir (parce que les pupilles marron, ça fait vraiment trop bizarre!). J'ai déchiré et cousu tous mes papiers, collé quelques étoiles dans la plus grande déchirure et ajouté un sapin en feutrine reçu lors d'un swap.

I received this rubber stamp as a giveaway from Jacque: the image is from Mi Ran, the stamp brand is Treasured Times. I stamped the image in brown ink, fussy cut it with precision scissors, colored it with promarkers and went over the lines with a black pen for the eyes (because, oh my, those eyes in brown were really creepy!). I distressed and stitched all the layers, tore a bit the red paper to add some stars coming out from the tearing, and finally added a white felt tree.

I would like to submit my card to the following challenges : Art By Mi Ran (anything goes), A Crafty Mess (anything goes), Christmas Stamping All Year Long (anything goes), Creative Corner (it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas), Sister Act (anything goes), I Love Promarkers (a cute Christmas : isn't she cute with her huge eyes?), Creative Fingers (anything goes).
