Carte/Card

Uniko – Une tasse de thé / A cup of tea

Bonjour !

Le “magnifique” temps d’aujourd’hui (je ne sais pas pour vous mais ici il y a énormément de vent et il grêle !) m’a permis de faire une nouvelle carte. J’ai fait un petit tour sur le net pour voir les thèmes des derniers challenges. Et je suis tombée en admiration devant le dernier challenge de Less is More : faire une carte avec la couleur bleu sarcelle essentiellement ! Super ! En plus je viens tout juste de recevoir ma commande de chez Uniko et je n’avais qu’une hâte : faire joujou avec ! Il ne me manquait juste que le sketch….mais je me souvenais d’une carte qu’Esther a faite il y a quelques semaines et dont j’adorais le design. Je vous invite à aller visiter son blog car elle est pour moi une grande source d’inspiration ! Je vous laisse découvrir son merveilleux talent !

Hello !

The “wonderful” today’s weather (I don’t know for you but here there is a lot of wind and it hails !) enabled me to do a new card. I had a look on the net to see the latest challenges. And I fell in admiration with the latest challenge from Less is More : mainly teal ! Great ! Moreover I just received my order from Uniko and I was just in a hurry : to play with it ! Only the sketch was missing…but I remembered a card that Esther has made some weeks ago and from which I loved the design. I invite you to visit her blog since she is for me a great source of inspiration ! I let you discover her wonderful talent !

Voici ma carte / Here is my card :

Cette tasse me rappelle les services à thé comme il y en avait chez ma grand-mère, en porcelaine fine délicatement peinte et dorée à l’intérieur. J’ai donc essayé de reproduire ce souvenir.

This cup reminds me the tea sets as the one my grand-mother had, in fine porcelaine delicately painted and golden inside. I then tried to reproduce this remembrance.

En suivant le design d’Esther, j’ai tamponné directement sur la carte double les fleurs à l’aide de la Misti et de masques. Puis j’ai fait la bande sur le côté droit avec un tampon. Sur une autre feuille blanche préalablement découpée à la bonne taille et sur laquelle j’ai fait les bordures pointillées à l’aide d’un die, j’ai tamponné la tasse. Puis à l’aide d’un masque, j’ai fait les petites fleurs sur la tasse. Les décorations dorées sont faite avec de la peinture et un pinceau.

Following Esther‘s design, I directly stamped on the double card the flowers with the Misti and some masks. Then I made the strip on the right side with a stamp. On another white cardstock previously cut at the right size and on which I’ve made the stitched borders with a die, I stamped the cup. Then, with a mask, I made the little flowers on the cup. The golden embellishments are made with paint and a brush.

Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment en 2 fois et toujours avec un masque. La partie dorée est quant à elle embossée à chaud. Et Voilà ! J’ai adoré “jouer” avec les tampons d’Uniko. Ce que j’aime beaucoup, c’est que Bev fait souvent un motif grand modèle et un rappel du même en plus petit, comme ici avec ces fleurs.

To finish, I stamped the sentiment in two steps and again with a mask. The golden part has been heat embossed. And Voilà ! I loved “to play” with the Uniko stamps. What I particularly love is that Bev often creates a large model motif and makes the same one in a smaller size, like here for these flowers.

  1. How beautiful! I love the colors you used and the floral border you stamped -I also have the flower stamp set but haven’t used it yet, I find the layering a bit difficult, however your card has given me a lot of inspiration again and I should give this stamp set a go!

  2. I would love to have a cup (or several) of tea with you! I have the impression that we would find lots to talk about!
    Both of those sets are in my possession and I love how you used them! The golden accents are so beautiful!

  3. You captured the elegance of fine porcelaine wonderfully here, Isabelle … this is beautiful … and is similar to tea services my grandmother had too! The colour combination of aqua and gold on those delicate flowers is superb … and the masked/stamped border is such a lovely complement to the main image! Such a joy! Bises, Anita 🙂

  4. This is such an elegant card Izzy, a really beautiful choice of colours. I know that teal was the starting point, but the gold looks fabulous with it! You have captured the essence of those beautiful porcelein cups perfectly. It makes me want to go and buy a set!!! And your patient masking of the background… I am lazy about masking but I love how it ends up looking. I must persevere!! You really do create the most beautiful cards. Thank you so much for sharing them with us, hugs, Lisa

  5. This is just pure elegance, Izzy! I love the teal and gold combo and you have really made those stamps from Uniko sing! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Less is More 🙂

  6. Such a beautiful card Izzy, and I’m blushing at your compliments… thank you my friend x The pops of gold on the teacup are so elegant and really look just like those fine chinas that used to be the only way to take tea! I love those flowers at the left side too and how they match the teacup floral decoration so well. Brilliant! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More 🙂

  7. What a sensational card Izzy. You added a real touch of luxury with those hints of gold glistening from the cup. What an expensive tea service that must be! Super stamping on the base card too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  8. Oh my I am swooning at your beautiful creation Izzy. Eye-poppingly gorgeous use of your Uniko goodies. Crisp and clean stamping and so elegant in teal and gold. A brilliant take on our challenge and thanks for playing along with us at Less is More x

  9. So clever how you’ve incorporated all the challenges. Such pretty colours and fabulous layout. Love the colour of the teal and such a wonderful pop of gold. Special card..I love it! x
