Summer Card - Surfing at Sunset - Massive Masking

mardi 19 juin 2018

Hello there,

Here is a new summer card I've made featuring a lot of masking and ink blending, and a cutie from the new "Waves" stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas. Hope you'll like it!


I first started by cutting several pieces from masking paper: the hills, the ocean and the sun, and colored my background using them and several distress inks. Added white details to the ocean edge, and brown dots to the sand.


Next I stamped my image on neenah solar white cardstock, fussy cut it and colored it using my alcohol markers. Attached it at the bottom right of my panel using foam adhesive squares.


I drew some birds on the sky, and stamped my sentiment: first part using black ink and second part using gold embossing powder. And finally I attached my panel to a white card base.

Under The Sea Card Series - Mermanimals

samedi 16 juin 2018

Hello there,

I'm back to share with you this colorful card inspired by the CDD Mood Board and using the new "Mermanimal" stamp set. I absolutely adore this new set, it's so cute!


I first started by cutting six identical circles off a masking paper rectangle. Next I applied this "holed" masking paper on a bristol smooth rectangle, and colored each circle using a bunch of distress inks.



To add more interest to these circles, I splattered water on top of them and dried it using paper towel.


Next I stamped my images on neenah solar white cardstock, fussy cut and colored them using alcohol markers, making sure to use the same tons as my circles. I also stamped my sentiment on the bottom left circle, and then attached my images on their matching circle.


Added white dots to their cheeks, clear glitter to their tails, some clear drops here and there, and attached the panel to a white card base to finish the project.

Summer Card - A Little Splash - Massive Masking

jeudi 14 juin 2018

Hello there,

It's day 4 of Sneak Peek Week for Craftin Desert Divas June Release so I'm sharing this card featuring the new "100% Magical" stamp set that I mixed with an "old" island die set to create a cute scene. Hope you'll like it!


I wanted something different compared to what I usually do so I first started by masking the edges of a bristol smooth panel, and next I inked the different parts: sky, ocean, island, using masking paper.

Once everything was colored, I draw some waves on the ocean using a thin brush and water, dried them with a paper towel, and accentuated them using a white gel pen.


I thought the unicorn would be a little bit alone on the island, so I die cut and colored using distress inks several elements to build a palm tree. Attached it on the left of the panel using liquid glue and glue dots.


Colored my image using alcohol markers and attached it on the island next to the palm tree. I drew some birds in the sky using a black gel pen, stamped my sentiment along the right edge of the ocean, attached the panel to a white card base, applied glossy accents to the diving mask and clear glitter to her hair to finish the project.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30 - Treasure Hunt 2

mercredi 13 juin 2018

Hello there,


Here is the second "Treasure Hunt" card I've made for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30. The first one was about pirates digging in the sand to extract a chest, this time it's about scuba divers discovering a chest full of golden coins in the deep of the ocean. Hope you'll like it ^^


I first started by creating the background, and for that I die cut two hill borders that I colored using two shades of teal distress inks. Sprayed some drops of the darker color on top of them.


Then I colored a bristol smooth panel using three different shades of blue distress inks, going dark at the bottom to light at the top. Sprayed water that I dried with a paper towel. Created the rays of light using a stencil and white ink.


I stamped all my images on neenah solar white cardstock using black alcohol marker friendly ink and cut them using the coordinating dies. Attached them on my panel using glue dots, white heat embossed my sentiment, applied clear glitter to the golden coins, glossy accents to their masks, and added here and there clear drops to give the illusion of bubbles.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30 - Treasure Hunt 1 - Pop-Up Card

Hey there,


Today I'm sharing with you a pop-up card I've made for the last Lawn Fawnatics Challenge using several stamp sets and die sets from Lawn Fawn. I often like to browse through my LF supplies, searching for sets that could go together and make a cute scene.


I first started by stamping all my images using black alcohol marker friendly ink on neenah solar white cardstock. I used my misti tool in order to be able to stamp them twice and get crisp lines. Then I colored everything using my alcohol markers.


Next I took bristol smooth cardstock and die cut several elements to build the scene: a mountain border, two ocean borders and a pop-up border. From the same cardstock, I also cut two rectangles for the sky and for the sand. I colored all these pieces using distress inks.


On the inside top part of a kraft card base, I attached the sky and the mountain border, on the inside bottom part, I attached the sand and the two ocean borders, and finally I attached the pop-up element. Attached all the images using glue dots, stamped my sentiment and two little birds to finish the card.
