Pivoine violette

Hello!

La carte d’aujourd’hui met en scène la superbe pivoine du set “You’ve got this”. Les pivoines font partie de mes fleurs préférées alors il me fallait ce set 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Purple Peony - #StampinUp #YouveGotThis, #OneBigMeaning

J’ai d’abord tamponné la pivoine avec l’encre Memento Tuxedo Black, pour pouvoir la colorier avec des feutres à alcool. J’ai utilisé différentes nuances pour un rendu plus réaliste. Puis je l’ai découpée à la main.

Pour créer le fond, j’ai tamponné la pivoine plusieurs fois sur le papier, en faisant attention d’enlever l’encre de la tige. Puis j’ai colorié le fond tout autour des fleurs en gris très clair (toujours feutre à alcool). J’ai découpé des feuilles dans du papier blanc et du vélin, créé une bannière pour mon sentiment, monté la fleur grâce à des mousses adhésives. Quelques sequins apportent la touche de bling requise.

Thanks for being there

Hello there!

I’m very sorry I’ve been away for so long… I had a good reason for that: we were moving again! As my due date is approaching for baby #3, we decided to move in a house farther from Paris. Space… Countryside… Friends and family around… I am sooo happy right now, it was worth all the pain to be moving so quickly after coming back to France last August!

So of course with all the boxes to pack, I had very little time to craft. And I’ve been craving it a lot! Some evenings though, I could find the energy to stamp and create anything. Here is one of my creations, and it fits perfectly with my spirit at the moment: even if I haven’t posted lately, some of you continue to come visit my blog, and it warms my heart. I’m thankful for that, and that’s precisely the sentiment on my card: “thanks for being there”

Shimmer and Shine - Thanks for being there #StampinUp, #Sheltering #Tree, #Arbre #Protecteur

It’s a very simple card but I find sometimes simplicity is the best way to express your feelings…

The card base is from Crumb Cake, the little flowers from Sheltering Tree are the star of the show in their humble way and to put them into relief I matted the white cardstock with Real Red. A ribbon from my stash and a few drops of Dazzling Details on the flowers give a nice finish to the card. Simple and pretty. Hope you like it 🙂

Supplies (Stampin’Up!):

  • Stamp set: Sheltering Tree
  • Inks: Real Read, Pink Pirouette
  • Papers: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White
  • Embellishment : Dazzling Details

Polka Dotted Merci

Hi!

Hope you had a lovely weekend so far 🙂

Today’s card started with some inks and Stampin’Up!’s decorative mask. I didn’t know where I was going, I just wanted to have a play ^^

I looked for a color scheme on Pinterest and chose this one:

color scheme

 

I looked for the corresponding ink pads I got, and selected Bashful Blue (the lightest shade of Blue I had, wish I had Soft Sky, I think it would have matched better with the one on the picture), Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Sahara Sand. I carefully taped my mask to make sure it wouldn’t move and randomly sponged inks to create colourful dots. Once I had the dotted background, I figured out what to do with it… put it against a Sahara Sand paper as my card base: yes, that works. But it needed to be put into relief, so I added to fine stripes of Tempting Turquoise to make it stand.

The photos are a bit dark, thanks to this lovely weather we have at the moment in Paris… 😦

Ok, then? What about a sentiment? but where to put it, because of this busy background? I had the idea of splitting my dotted background in two to reveal the sentiment directly on the card base. I chose a “thank you” sentiment from Fabuleux Quatuor, bold enough to compete with the dots, and to make sure it would stand, I stamped it in Soft Suede, a darker brown. I used the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig and a post-it note to stamp only the “merci” on the front card, reserving the rest of the sentiment for the inside. Then I mounted the dotted paper on foam tape and added some alcohol markers coloured pearls around the sentiment. I decorated the inside of the card with the same techniques.

I really like to create my own backgrounds. The funny thing is I love DSP too and tend to hoard them, but I get so mad at the idea of cutting the sheets that I never use them… how crazy is that! Please tell me I’m not the only one to do this 😉

Supplies (Stampin’Up!):

  • Stamp set: Fabuleux Quatuor
  • Inks: Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay
  • Papers: Sahara Sand, Tempting Turquoise
  • Stencil: Dots and Stripes Decorative Masks
