Christmas card/Carte de Noël

Hello crafty friends !   It has been a while I didn't post...Sorry for that, a lot has been going lately and I had very little time for myself (which I spent creating, of course:)). I am sharing this lovely Christmas card with you today :    For this card, I applied a few layers of Distress inks by Ranger (Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans) that I tried to blend together.

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".

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]

Card "It's a boy" /Carte de naissance "it's a boy"

Hello everyone,   I am sharing with you today this card I made for a friend who got a baby a few weeks ago. This is also my participation at Simon says Stamp wednesday's challenge, which is "use a patterned paper". I had quite some difficulties to find a patterned paper which fits the birth of a boy.

I added to this paper two resin elements... [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.

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]

My first post...Inspired by Alice in Wonderland !

Welcome to my blog and thank you first for stopping by and reading... For my first post, I will share my first Mixed Media challenge (that's a lot of "firsts", isn't it?). This challenge, created by Simon Says Stamp, is organized every Monday (and there is a second one each Wednesday). The subject of this week was "Based on Book".

I chose a paperbase : I really like the Vintage, shabby look of this... [Lire la suite]
