Simon Says Stamp a wedding card



Ca faisait plus d'un mois que je n'avais pas fait de carte, je me suis vraiment fait plaisir à créer celle-là... J'ai utilisé une seule feuille de papier Basic Grey Capella, ma collection favorite pour les thèmes autour du mariage, et me suis bien amusée avec les embellissements en tout genres (napperon, dentelle, fleurs, perles).

I can't believe I spent more than a month without making any card... I really enjoyed making that one. I used just one sheet of Basic Grey paper from the Capella collection (my go(to collection for wedding-themed projects). I really enjoyed adding all the details with the doily, lace, flowers and pearls. I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp challenge, which is "anything goes" this week.

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Summer Birthdays


Cupcake Cutie

Cette semaine le challenge Ladybug Crafts Ink est un peu spécial: nous prenons un peu de vacances cet été et le challenge, au lieu de durer une semaine comme d'habitude, dure tout le mois de juillet (nous aurons aussi un seul challenge pour le mois d'août, avant de revenir à un challenge par semaine en septembre). Le thème du challenge a été choisi par Sue: anniversaires d'été. Vous pouvez interpréter ça comme ça vous chante... De mon côté, j'ai utilisé l'image "Cupcake cutie - cherry on top" avec des papiers aux couleurs estivales...

This week the Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge is special: we're having a little summer break, so instead of lasting only one week the challenge spans on the entire month of July. then we'll have one challenge for the month of August, then we'll be back to the normal rythm of one challenge a week in September. So the July theme has been chosen by Sue, and she chose summer birthdays. I have created this card using the Cupcake Cutie - Cherry on top stamp.
I'd like to submit my card to the following challenges:

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Make your own embellies


Baby baby

Cette semaine le thème du challenge chez Ladybug Crafts Ink a été choisi par Anita. Il s'agit de créer ses propres embellissements. J'ai eu un peu de difficulté avec ce thème... J'ai tamponné les petits animaux, découpé, percé un trou pour pouvoir les suspendre et j'ai voulu les recouvrir de glossy accents pour donner un côté plastifié... Mais ce que je ne savais pas, c'est que le glossy accents fait baver l'encre... Donc j'ai re-tamponné, re-découpé, re-percé, et cette fois-ci j'ai utilisé de la poudre à embosser transparente. Hélas je n'ai pas de UTEE, donc ma poudre faisait juste une couche minime même avec deux épaisseurs, pas d'effet plastique suffisant sur mes petits animaux... J'ai donc passé deux couches de glossy accents (en laissant sécher une journée entre les deux couches!). Cette fois-ci l'embossage a fait une barrière de protection qui a évité que l'encre ne file... On ne voit pas la différence à la photo, mais cette fois-ci, les animaux sont bien plastifiés et sont rigides, on peut secouer la carte et ça fait du bruit en cognant sur le fond... de quoi bien amuser un enfant je pense! Le bébé vient du set Baby Baby de Ladybug Crafts Ink, les animaux viennent d'un set de Stampin'Up.

This week's challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink has been chosen by Anita. She wants us to make our own embellies. I had some difficulties with that one... I stamped and cut the little animals, punched a hole and covered them in glossy accents. Then I discovered that the glossy accents made the ink run... So I re-stamped, re-cut, re-punched, and this time covered with clear embossing powder. I put two coats of embossing powder but it wasn't thick enough. I don't have UTEE so I put two coats of glossy accents (letting dry one day between the two coats). This time the embossing powder acted as a barrier and the ink didn't run... and now the little animals look like they're made of plastic and they are solid enough. When we move the card they make a little ringing noise against the back of the card, enough for a little child to have fun with it... The baby image comes from the Baby Baby set from Ladybug Crafts Ink and the animals are from Stampin'Up.
I'm just within the time limit for entering my card in the "Babies" challenge at Fuzzy Wuzzy and there's a Teddy Bears theme both at Pollycraft and  Crafty Calendar, hope my teddy bear costumed baby counts...

Joyeuse fête des mères


Bonne fête maman!

Voici la carte que j'ai faite pour ma maman à l'occasion de la fête des mères... J'y ai mis beaucoup d'embossage à froid (ce que j'aime) et de vert (ce qu'elle aime).

Today is Mother Day here in France. I have made this card for my mum, with lots of dry embossing (what I love) and green color (what she loves).
I'd like to enter my card in the "I believe in fairies" challenge at LOTV and the "embossed layers" challenge at WOC (WOC products used: roses and adhesive pearls).

Totally Gorjuss 82 - String's the thing

This week's theme at Totally Gorjuss is "String's the thing". I enjoyed making this card which is totally different from what I usually create... No promarker this time and a prime role left to the beautiful MME paper.

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Use some orange

La carte avec son enveloppe fermée
My card with the closed envelope


Cette semaine le challenge chez Ladybug Crafts Ink, choisi par Mary J, est d'utiliser la couleur orange sur son projet. Comme vous pouvez le voir, cela n'a pas été trop difficile, j'aime bien cette couleur... L'enveloppe est amovible et elle contient mon image... J'ai utilisé le tampon BFF's Phoebe and Olivia, que j'ai encré à l'aide d'un marqueur memento pour ne garder qu'Olivia - j'ai redessiné le dos et le bord des cheveux qui normalement sont appuyés contre Phoebe...

On peut retirer l'enveloppe et découvrir Olivia qui dit bonjur!
When you take the envelope out of the card and open it, you discover Olivia saying hello!

This week the challenge atLadybug Crafts Ink has been chosen by Mary J. You have to use orange somewhere on your creation. As you can see, it was not too difficult for me, I do like orange... I used BFF's Phoebe and Olivia but inked it with a memento marker to only keep the Olivia part of the stamp. I just had to redraw the back and a little bit of the hair as they normally are pressed against Phoebe's back and hair... Then when you get the card, you have to take the enveloppe out and discover a little girl saying hello!
I'd like to enter this card into the "Twine, jute or string" challenge at My Partner in Crafting Crime .

Totally Gorjuss 80 - Not square


Totally Gorjuss 80 - Not square

Lorsque Christelle m'a offert ce classeur d'embossage Stampin'Up, je me suis demandé si j'en aurais l'usage, puisque j'ai tendance à faire des cartes dont on voit assez peu le fond. En général je favorise donc les petits motifs pour l'embossage... En fait, il ne m'aura pas fallu plus d'une journée de réflexion pour trouver une utilisation au classeur d'embossage "fleur de Manhattan". Merci Christelle! Cette carte m'a servi pour répondre à une invitation à un mariage. Elle me permet de vous présenter le challenge Totally Gorjuss de cette semaine:  la base de votre carte ne doit pas être carrée.

This week the challenge at Totally Gorjuss is "not square". I made this wedding acceptance card with the "Manhattan flower" embossing flower from Stampin' Up that Christelle gave me.

Magnum and Lily Snowball Fun

Cette semaine le challenge chez Ladybug Crafts Ink est "noir et blanc + 1", moi j'ai choisi le rouge. J'ai utilisé pour ma carte le tampon  Magnum and Lilly Snowball Fun, j'essaye de préparer mes cartes de voeux à l'avance cette année...

The theme this week at Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge has been chosen by Hayley and it is Black and White Plus One. As you can see, I chose red as my Plus One.

Stampin'Up

la carte à l'état "fermé"
 the "closed" waterfall card

Ce week-end j'ai accueilli un atelier Stampin'Up animé par Christelle. Nous avons passé un très bon moment et nous avons réalisé une carte cascade. Chaque carte était différente, je vous présente seulement la mienne car j'ai oublié de prendre en photo les autres avant que chacune rentre chez elle :(.

la carte avec sa cascade à moitié ouverte
the  same card with the waterfall semi-opened 

Last week-end I had a Stampin'Up demonstrator at home, Christelle, who helped my friends and I to create a waterfall card. It was a very nice time. Each card was different, I'm only presenting you the one I made, I didn't even think about taking a picture of my friends' cards before they took them away with them :(.

Tickled Pink Stamps challenge 18


Tickled Pink Stamps challenge 18

J'ai fait cette carte pour participer au challenge 18 de Tickled Pink Stamps, qui est un sketch... J'ai utilisé leur image Mollie Mittens with Balloon et le beau ruban velours+dentelle en bas vient de chez Ladybug Crafts Ink.

I made this card according to the sketch at Tickled Pink Stamps challenge. I used their Mollie Mittens With Balloon stamp and the gorgeous lace velvet ribbon at the bottom of the card is from Ladybug Crafts Ink (I've had quite for quite some time now, but it's the first time I dare to cut some of it, does it sometimes happen to you that you so much love something that you don't dare using it?)
On top of the Tickled Pink Stamps challenge, I'd like to enter my card into these other challenges:

  • Crafty Ann: Happy Bithday (OK, there's no sentiment on this card, but why would Mollie bring a ballon if it wasn't for a birthday party?)
  • Flutter By: open (anything but must use a butterfly, fairy or angel - I thinhk my butterfly is visible enough!)
  • My Mum's Craft Shop: cute and girly
  • Claudia & Company: butterflies

This week at Totally Gorjuss the theme is a sketch. I used a LOTV image, Blowing Bubbles, of which I cut the upper bubble so as to be more versatile (the upper bubble has a heart shape). The papers are Stampin'Up and the four epoxy dots at the top of the card come from Ladybug Crafts Ink.

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Going Dotty


Baby Baby

Le challenge de Ladybug Crafts Ink cette semaine, choisi par Lisa, est d'utiliser des pois. J'ai utilisé deux papiers à pois, l'un imprimé, l'autre embossé, dont la couleur se révèle avec un peu de ponçage... Pour cette carte j'ai utilisé un tampon du set Baby Baby.

This week's challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink has been chosen by Lisa and she chose "going dotty". I chose two dotted papers, the blue one simply printed, the beige/brown one being a core'dinations embossed paper on which the design is revealed by sanding. It was the first time I sanded paper, oh boy, that does make a lot of dust! But I like the effect. For my card I used a stamp from the Baby Baby set.

Totally Gorjuss 78 - Recipe: 123


1 lace, 2 DPs, 3 butterflies

Cette semaine chez Totally Gorjuss le challenge est une recette, "123": 1 de quelque chose, 2 de quelque chose d'autre et 3 d'autre chose. J'ai utilisé: 1 dentelle, 2 papiers à motifs, 3 papillons. L'image est un tampon Magnolia (empreinte envoyée par Lisa) à laquelle je n'ai pas pu m'empêcher d'ajouter un nez et une bouche...

This week at Totally Gorjuss there is a 123 recipe: 1 of one thing, 2 of another and 3 of something else. I used 1 lace, 2 design papers, 3 butterflies. The image is a hand print that Lisa sent me as I was wondering how much I would enjoy colouring Magnolia images. Well, as much as I love them on other people's cards, I just wasn't able to colour my Tilda as is: I just had to add a nose and mouth... Hope you Magnolia lovers won't get angry at me!!!

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Celebration


Cherry on Top

Le challenge Ladybug Crafts Ink de cette semaine a été choisi par Pami: votre création doit faire référence à une fête! Pour moi, c'est une fête d'anniversaire, et j'ai utilisé l'image Cherry on Top de la collection Cupcake Cuties, et le tampon "Happy Birthday" vient du set Sentimental Numbers.

It's time for a new challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink! This time Pami chose the theme: Celebration! I've used Cherry on Top image from the Cupcake Cuties release and paired it with a sentiment from Sentimental Numbers. I made a quite simple card, just a bit of glitter on the cupcake icing and two gem stars for a bit of sparkle and dimension.

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - a sketch



Cette fois-ci le challenge Ladybug Crafts Ink a été choisi par Tams, elle a choisi un superbe sketch de Maya Stenshagen. Pour ma carte j'ai utilisé Magnum and Lily Snowball Fun, pas vraiment de saison mais ça me permet de prendre un peu d'avance pour les cartes de voeux, l'année dernière j'étais tellement en retard que je n'en ai quasiment pas envoyé...

This week's challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink was set by Tams, and she chose a beautiful sketch by Maya Stenshagen. For my card I used Magnum and Lily Snowball Fun, I'm trying to grow my Christmas cards stock so that I don't get to panick at the last minute...

A thank you card


the sentiment reads "just wanted to say thanks"

Now that this card has been received, I can show it to you... My first ever stitched card! I really enjoyed making it. I sure will do it again! (but it's quite long and takes me away from my beloved promarkers, so I might not do it that often...). I used two different colors of the sew easy floss purple kit for the butterfly wings. The picture doesn't show that, but the aspect of the wings is quite different according to the angle at which you view them, due to direction in which the floss is stitched. The sketch is from the call for Paper Crafts Magazine September/October Issue (of course I received no news from them otherwise I wouldn't be showing you my card). I'd like to enter my card in the ABC Challenge: R is for Roses.

TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Make your own flowers


BFF's - Phoebe and Olivia

Hello everybody! This week's challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink has been chosen by our Guest Designer Amanda. She chose "make your own flowers". I made only one, but it is a special one. It is made of fabric and button from my husband's old shirt (that he gave me for the purpose of craft recycling!). There are 8 scalloped circles of fabric (cut with my nestabilities), folded in 8 and glued on a circle paper base, then 4 smaller circles folded in 4 and glued over them, then the button. I had fun making it! I think it's my first use of fabric (except ribbon) on a card... I made the card using BFF's - Phoebe and Olivia. I think it's my favorite Ladybug Crafts Ink image so far...
Hope to see you in the cahllenge this week!

C'est mardi, c'est un nouveau challenge chez Ladybug Crafts Ink! Cette semaine c'était à moi de choisir le challenge et j'ai choisi le thème "monochrome". J'espère que vous serez inspirés! Ma carte utilise le tampon Bon Appetite Magnum.

It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday again! This week I'm the one setting the challenge and I chose monochrome as the theme. I used Bon Appetite Magnum for my card. I followed the sketch from CLP Challenge. The doily, from which I cut the inside to only keep the outer circle, was part of Laura's candy: I inked it with a bronze inkpad to keep it from being too white.
Hope you feel inspired and will join the challenge!

Une autre carte avec un tampon de Lili of the Valley. J'ai suivi le sketch de Sketch Saturday.

I have another card with a Lili of the Valley image for you today. This time it's Toadstool for Two from the latest release. I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, but changed the sizes and replaced the sentiment with a flower.

Everybody Art Challenge 133


Everybody Art Challenge 133

Une petite carte réalisée avec un tampon Lili of the Valley d'après le sketch de Everybody Art Challenge...

This is a thank you card for a late wedding present that we received through my hubby's parents. The sentiment "Merci" means thank you in French and is computer-generated. I used the "Together Forever" image from Lili of the Valley that I bought thanks to Jacque's voucher - thank you Jacque! I followed the sketch from Everybody Art Challenge. The beautiful pleated ribbon comes from Ladybug Crafts Ink: that's right, Kerry now sells ribbon by the yard and if you're a ribbon lover then you should visit her store because her ribbons are really gorgeous! (I think you'll see some other of her ribbons on my cards soon...) and you can check the LCI stamps while you're at it :)
