Holiday Card Series 2018 - Winter Village

vendredi 14 septembre 2018

Hey there,

Today I'm back to share a new holiday card featuring a stamp set I didn't get the chance to use last year, so I was very happy to work with it for the first time.


I first started by stamping all my images on Neenah solar white cardstock using alcohol marker friendly black ink, next I colored them using my Spectrum Noir markers and then I cut everything using the coordinating dies.

I cut a large rectangle from light blue bokeh paper and attached it to a white card base using double sided tape.


I die cut peekaboo frame, and used the little left over squares and rectangles to die cut cloud borders to use as snow grounds. Next I glued those little snow borders in place using the frame as a guide. And then I attached the frame using small adhesive squares.


I attached all my images using adhesive squares and liquid glue, gold heat embossed my sentiment on a banner, attached it in the middle of the panel and applied clear glitter here and there on the houses and tress to finish the card.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #36 - Hello Fall

samedi 8 septembre 2018


Hello there,

I know I've already started my Holiday Card Series but the new Lawn Fawnatics "Moodboard" Challenge allows me to share my first Fall card of the year. I picked a bunch of dies and stamps from Lawn Fawn to create this cute little scene.

Here is the image that inspired me:


I first started by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White cardstock. Just a few, as the whole card is about the autumn colors of the scenery. I colored them using my alcohol markers, and then cut them using the coordinating dies.


Then I die cut all the elements I needed to build the scene: a tree backdrop in dark brown cardstock, leaves in green, yellow and red cardstocks, a large frame in red cardstock, tree borders in dark brown cardstock and their foliage in the same colors as the leaves, a hill border, a grass border and a cloud border (to make bushes) in green cardstock.


My colors of cardstocks were a little bit too flat so I added some distress ink to all the die cut elements to add some depth and interest. The sky was created using orange and yellow distress oxide inks on Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock.

On this sky panel, I attached the cloud border (bushes) and the hill border. I cut the trees from the dark brown tree borders, tucked them the bushes and glued them along with the foliage.


At the bottom of the tree backdrop frame, I attached the grass border, and next on top of it I attached the red rectangle frame. At the back of one of the branches I attached the swing. I gold heat embossed my sentiment on the top right corner of the sky. And I finally attached the tree backdrop panel on top of the sky panel to complete the scenery.

Next I attached the images and the leaves using liquid glue and/or glue dots and/or foam adhesive squares. To finish the card, I simply attached the whole panel to a kraft card base.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #35 || Cupcake Party || Pop-Up Card

jeudi 30 août 2018


Hello there,

Lawn Fawnatics Challenges are always so cool and diversified, it has now become kind of a habit for me to participate every time. For this one, I didn't have any coffee or tea related stamp sets, but when I saw the word "treats" I immediately thought of the "Baked with love" stamp set I have in my stash.

And as I didn't want my card to be flat, I decided to build a pop-up counter to place all my elements on it and give the illusion of a "real" kitchen ^^


I first started by stamping all my images on Neenah solar white cardstock using my Misti tool and alcohol marker fridnely black ink. I them using my Spectrum Noir markers, trying to choose colors that would match nicely with the paper I wanted to use as a background. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything.


Then I built the scene, and for that I cut a white card base and two rectangles of pattern papers, one to make the wall and one to make the floor. I attached them on the card base using double sided tape.
I cut and scored a piece of wood pattern paper to make the furniture, and two small rectangles and two small squares to make the drawers and cupboards; I attached them using double sided foam tape (all the measurements are shown in the video below)


To be able to attached all my images on the counter, I cut and scored three small pop-up elements: one for the blender, one for bowl and one for the flour bag/cupcake stand (again, all the measurements are shown in the video below) All the other elements were attached using foam adhesive squares.


I applied clear glitter to the cupcakes, added white drops on the drawers and cupboards to create handles, and attached my sentiment in the middle of the floor to finish the card.

Holiday Card Series 2018 - Frosty Forest - Diorama Card Series

dimanche 26 août 2018

Hey there,

I continue my Holiday Card Series for 2018 with this winter diorama using my all time favorite holiday stamp set: Frosty Fairy Friends from Lawn Fawn. I really hope I'll never bored of this amazing set! ^^


I first started by stamping all my images on Neenah solar white cardstock using alcohol marker friendly black ink. Colored them using my Spectrum Noir markers and cut everything using the coordinating dies.


Next I build the diorama using several elements: a base using pattern paper, and borders using white cardstock (mountains, forest, and clouds for snow)


All the measurements for this diorama are shown in this video.


I stamped my sentiment on the front cloud border, applied clear glitter to the red berries and fairies wings, and attached the images on the different borders using glue dots. The two flying fairies were attached using a thin strip of cleat acetate.

Under The Sea Card Series - Trio of Rainbow Cards - DIY Wreath Builder

samedi 18 août 2018

Hello there,

According to my blog, it's been two years since my last (and unique! LOL) rainbow project so I'm more than excited to share this trio of cards I've made using a home made wreath builder (tutorial here)


I first started by cutting three 4 x 4" squares to fit in my wreath builder (I used Neenah solar white cardstock). Then I used my misti tool to stamp all my images on my papers using black alcohol marker friendly ink.

On the first one I stamped different fishes from various sizes in circles, going small in the middle and bigger towards the edges.


On the second one, I stamped star fishes, also in circle, like they're dancing ^^


On the third one, I stamped mermaids and sea horses among other cute things. All the images on the three panels were colored using the same color combos of spectrum noir markers.


I gold heat embossed my sentiments on the first two cards, and die cut a big hello from gold glitter cardstock for the third one. And to finish them, I simply attached my panels to white card bases.
