Simon says stamp Instagram challenge: summer

Hi all,    Simon Says Stamp launched a new challenge on IG! This month, the theme is 'summer'. I created two mini canvases (10x10 cm).

Then I added a few touches of Metallique Vintage rose and Light Patina. To finish my... [Lire la suite]

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: frame it!

Hello crafty friends... Today I am sharing with you my entry to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge of this week: Frame it. I created a small canvas(20x20cm), using a variety of products from Finnabair:   I started by painting my canvas with Black Gesso and then added some plaster paste on the diagonal of the canvas through my Swirly Florals stencil. I love this stencil very much, I can't stop using it! Then, I added a second layer of black gesso. While this was drying, I prepared the different pieces of my mandala... [Lire la suite]

Chocolate jars - Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge

Hello Mixed Media friends,   Today I am sharing with you my first project for February. This is a project I have been working on for a few weeks, but I was a bit lacking of inspiration... Before Christmas, one of my coworkers brought two huge mason jars full of candies at work. Once they were empty, I asked him if I could take them home to create something with it. These jars are going to be chocolate jars. A chocolate jar ? What's that ? These will be jars where people can put some money in order to buy chocolate for the... [Lire la suite]

Simon Says Stamp challenge: "Splatter It"/ Défi Simon Says Stamp: "

Hello Crafty friends !   Today,  I am going to share with you my last participation to the Smon Says Stamp challenge. This is the Wednesday challenge for this week, and it is called "Splatter it". I really like to splatter my work or create dots, but splatters give a more grungy look. For this challenge, I created this card :  I used a thick sheet of black paper, but I don't remember the paperweight of it. Then, I used my Prima Marketing Watercolor Metallic Accents to make the splatters. I used three colors :... [Lire la suite]

An handmade card for Mother's Day ! Une carte faite-main pour la fête des mères...

Hello Crafty friends !   Today I will share with you the card I made for Mother's day... A simple card, but very elegant and feminine, I think. I started with an A4 sheet of Neenah Classic Crest 80 LB Smooth Solar White which I cut in half and folded in half to obtain one rectangle of 14 cm (height) over 21 (width). Then I folded this piece in two and obtained another rectangle of 14 (height) x 10.5  cm.(width). I embossed the first side of the card with the wafer die "Single roses" by Simon Says Stamps (my favorite die... [Lire la suite]
