ATC with stamps from La Compagnie des Elfes

Hello !

It's been a while since I made ATCs ! Luckily, La Compagnie des Elfes (French stamps company) has a challenge for April : made ATCs with at least one of their stamps. You can find this challenge on the blog here.

This is my take as a DT member :


I used not one but three of their stamps on these ATCs : flowers (Fleurs du Japon), scriptures (Lettre a mes parents) and ATC (etiquette ATC).
The ATC stamp was previously used, you can find the result on this post.

I used also Avocado Colorations spray, Shamrock Sorbet dimensional paint and Wild Orchid Colorations spray (Art Anthology), a stencil by TCW and a small fern punch.

Thank you for taking some time to read this post. I'm on my way to complete recovery (back surgery), so you will see more and more projects... Come back soon and, meanwhile, have a great day !

April Make it Prima challege - A mini album

Hello beautiful people !

I hope you have a great week end (maybe you're on a day off tomorrow too), and ready for my new project for the Prima challenge... I made a mini album with the Tales of You & Me 12x12 kit and a En Francais ribbon :


I cut the album with the Minibook cartridge and my Cricut in size 3 1/4". I distressed the edges and the inside of the album with Black Sooth distress ink by Ranger.


I used few big punches (EK Success, McGill) to cut some frames, or envelopes to decorate the album. The other embellishments are stickers from the Prima kit or flowers fussy cut from the papers.


Those papers are full of image to cut, I had a lot of fussy fun...


This is blank and ready to be filled with small pictures or journaling :


And the last picture is for the back of the album.


I will now go eat some chocolates before my children make them disappear...
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you liked my mini. 

See you soon for another project...

Distress Oxide ink on black cardstock - Tag tutorial

Hi there !

I know it's been a while, but my back required more rest than I expected (had surgery last month)...

I did play again with my distress oxide ink by Ranger, but this time I applied them on black cardstock and cream cardstock, so you will see the difference :


I use Distress oxide inks in Broken China, Cracked pistachio, Fossilizied amber and Wilvet violet.
Dies are from Tim Holtz / Sizzix, and I used a white gel pen to outline the tag.

You can watch the complete tutorial on my YouTube channel (I will be super happy if you follow me...) or here :



Thank you for stopping by today, see you on Monday for another mixed media tutorial for the Art Anthology blog !

Have a great week end...

March Make It Prima challenge

Hi there !

It was not possible for me to let the Prima March Make It challenge without creating something !
So I said to my back to be strong while I was making this tag, with rich chocolate cream and pastel pink colors, layers and fun !

shabby chic Prima Marketing tag with dies, flowers, embossing and chalk

As required, my tag is filled with Prima products... Flowers, of course, but also dies (for the leaves and doilie), papers (Ledgers from the mint and the chocolate, Tales of you&me for the flowers and butterflies), the tag (aquarelle tag pad), the ribbon (old collection), stickers (Tales of you&me), chalks in old pink and teak wall, and the fabric butterfly !

Only two things are not Prima : the Sizzix embossing folder I use on the pink tag, and the clay heart.

I missed the different challenges from Prima... Having three challenge increased my chances to win... Besides, I always loved using their sketch for layout and card...
But hey ! I'm not giving up on winning one day ! After all I've been featured several time, including last month...

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you liked my new tag...
See you soon (probably next week now because my back makes me pay this work...) !

Flowery Hello card with La Compagnie des Elfes


Bonjour !
 
I have a "Hi" card for you today, made with stamps from La Compagnie des Elfes and papers from DCWV :

CAS card with flower stamp and DCWV papers

I started by stamping the flowers and the leaves on the card base, using the masking technique to make clusters. Then I cut three panels from the Minty Lace stack by DCWV. I adhered first the black one.
I stamped on white cardstock the flowers and leaves, fussy cut them, before adhering few in clusters over the edges of the black paper. I repeated this step with the wood paper, and at the end, I adhered the journaling card.

So Hello to you and have a great day ! Stay connected with friends and relatives and... make cards.
Bye !
