Miss Ewe...

Here is a cool fun card.... I used 6 different papers and many textures... It was like creating a puzzle really a lot of fun! Miss Ewe is for my husband ... He is traveling every single weeks and Some weeks are harder than other to not have him near by... Just a card to remind him that we miss him when he is far away... (The card will probably not get to him till next week ... So let's hope that as usual he will not look at my blog! :))

Voici une carte toute mignonne…. J'ai utilise 6 papiers différents et beaucoup de textures… c'était comme de créer un puzzle ! "miss you" "Tu me manques" est pour Jeff mon mari… qui est en déplacement toutes les semaines et certaine semaines sont plus dures que d'autre de ne pas l'avoir avec nous… Juste une carte pour lui rappeler qu'il nous le manque quand il est loin… (La carte ne lui arrivera probablement pas jusqu'à la semaine prochaine… Donc espèreront que comme d'habitude il ne regardera pas mon blog ! :))

Lemon Vellum

I just love this card... the lemon is a vellum paper on which I sewed the orange ribbons...
A nice saying a pretty flower a little orange glass bead and VOILA!!!

Diggity Dog!

I had to find a way to use this "diggity Dog "set from TAC. I made my own background with the Paw Print GWP.
The inside of the eyelets is filled with Stickles for a bling effect.
I used the Pumpkin Spice Versamagic Ink for the Paw Print and the effect is pretty cool.
So what's up dog!!!

Hello Fall !!!

In autumn when the trees are brown
The little leaves come tumbling down
They do not make the slightest sound
But lie so quietly on the ground
Until the wind comes puffing by
And blows them off towards the sky.

The Fairy Story

There is a fairy the "Ugly paper Fairy " that at the last meet a stack of "Ugly paper"was left.... Well you all know that I have a really hard time using purple as well so I did used purple embellishments.... Tough card to do but not bad in the end!!!!

La dernière fois que nous nous sommes regroupe avec les filles une fée la fée du papier moche a déposé toute une pile.... Donc j'ai décide d'utiliser du papier moche et des petit "embellissements" violet et croyais moi violet c;est très dur a utiliser pour moi en tout les cas....

A really fun Technique to Do!

I call this technique the foam resist technique... No idea of the real name but I am for sure quite exited about it!
I love to go from blog to blog to website to.... wherever the web takes me. Well in one of my Web traveling time I stumbled onto a card that was using this technique... So I had to share this one with you.

Supplies: You will need some ink color of your choice; a heat gun and some funky foam.
There is really nothing to it
  • choose your stamp
  • with the heat gun in your left hand and the stamp in your right (if right handed)
  • with he heat gun heat up the foam till the edges start to lightly curl up
  • as soon as you lift the heat gun away from the foam stamp firmly onto that section for several seconds.
  • you'll see then a nice impression into the foam.
  • the last step is to brush the foam with your ink pad then wipe it off with a paper towel.
If you try it out I'd love to see what it look like. ;)

Butterfly Shimering

Every month 10 of us get together and do a card exchange... No theme, no directions what so ever just make 10 cards and give one to everyone!
Whne I do the 1st card I find it amazingly gorgeous... By the time I get to the 10th one I most likely dislike or hate it depending on the difficulty of the card. But this one was not that bad... I kind of cased it from Pat but a lot less girly ish ...
Well here is a beautiful butterfly shimering away...

Before embossing the paper and before stamping the butterfly and sprayed the papers with a "perfect pearl" mix with water to give a light shimmering feel to the card!
(In a little water bottle I put a tiny bit of perfect pearl powder with water and a drop of ink vintage photo from Tim Holtz, shake well before using and keep your paper far from the exiting liquid). I noice touch is to add color more than an ink drop into the water and to use it on white paper.
