Hello !

Notre sponsor pour le mois de juin est STAMPlorations et nous avons la joie d’accueillir Shery Russ en tant que Guest Designer !

Our sponsor for the month of June is STAMPlorations and we are very happy to welcome Shery Russ as our Guest Designer !

Voici ce que j’ai créé pour vous inspirer ! / Here is what I’ve created to inspire you !

1/ Ice cream solves everything / La glace résout tout

Je ne sais pas si c’est vrai mais dans tous les cas c’est super bon ! Je n’ai pas craqué sur la glace mais sur ces adorables petits poussins que j’ai tamponné avec de l’encre Distress sur un papier texturé puis embossé à chaud avec de la poudre transparente. Comme le papier est assez épais j’ai coloré cette image avec un pinceau et des encres Distress diluées plus ou moins avec de l’eau. L’image est ensuite découpée avec une matrice de découpe rectangulaire aux bords couture, puis collée sur un papier rose tendre. Le tout est collée sur une double carte faite dans le même papier et encadré par un cadre marron.

I don’t know if it’s true but in any case it’s super good! I did resist the ice cream but not those adorable little chicks that I stamped with Distress ink on a textured paper and then heat embossed with clear powder. As the paper is thick enough I colorized this image with a brush and Distress inks diluted more or less with water. The image is then cut with a rectangular stitched die and then glued onto soft pink paper. Everything is mounted on a double card made in the same paper and framed with a brown frame.

Stamp: Stamping Bella “Chicks with a sprinkle on top” – Inks: Distress “Vintage Photo, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade” – Marker: Tsukineko Fabrico dual marker “#131, #112 & #111” – Dies:  SSS “Stitched rectangle”, QuicKutz “Nesting card Templates”

2/ Ciao ! (using sponsor stencil)

Bon je ne sais pas pour vous, mais quand je pense Italie, je pense Vespa ! Il y en a tellement là-bas ! Pour faire cette carte j’ai tout d’abord utilisé un stencil de notre sponsor pour faire les pavés de la route. Puis j’ai ensuite tamponné le Vespa, le nuage, la fumée et le sentiment avec de l’encre Distress et j’ai embossé à chaud avec de la poudre transparente. Puis toujours avec les encres Distress et un pinceau j’ai coloré le Vespa.

Well, I don’t know for you, but when I think Italy, I think Vespa ! There are so much over there ! To make this card, I first used a stencil from our sponsor to make the pavement of the road. Then I stamped the Vespa, the cloud, the smoke and the sentiment with Distress ink and I heat embossed with clear powder. Still with Distress inks and a brush, I coloured the Vespa.

Stamp: Paper Smooches “Spiffy Scooters” – Inks: Distress “Vintage Photo, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade” – Marker: Tsukineko Fabrico dual marker “#131” – Stencil:  ARTplorations “Broken Glass”

3/ Joyeux Anniversaire / Happy Birthday (using sponsor die and stamp)

Cette carte je l’ai faite pour mon équipière Trina qui fêtait mercredi dernier son anniversaire ! Le chemin étant long, j’espère que ce mignon petit cerf sera arrivé à temps ! De même que pour les cartes précédentes, j’ai utilisé les encres Distress pour tamponner et colorer cette image et les sentiments. Pour le mot “happy”, j’ai utilisé un die de notre sponsor. J’ai coupé le mot à la fois dans du papier rose et du papier marron et je les ai collés l’un au dessus de l’autre mais légèrement en décalé. Pour le bas de la carte, j’ai découpé avec des ciseaux crantés un morceau de papier texturé façon bois. Puis j’ai collé dessus des petites découpes de cadeaux roses.

I made this card for my teammy Trina who celebrated her birthday last Wednesday ! The trip being long, I hope that this cute little deer will have arrived on time ! As for the previous cards, I used the Distress inks to stamp and to colour this image and the sentiments. For the “happy” word, I used a die from our sponsor. I cut the word twice, once in pink paper, and another time in brown paper and I adhered them together but lightly offset. For the bottom part of the card, I cut a wood patterned brown paper with creative cutting scissors. Then I glued some pink gifts die cuts on it.

Stamp: STAMPlorations “Reindeer games”, Uniko “Happy Succulents” (birthday sentiment) – Inks: Distress “Vintage Photo, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade” – Marker: Tsukineko Fabrico dual marker “#131” – Dies:  STAMPlorations “happy”, Simply Graphic “Etiquettes cadeaux”- Scissors: Fiskars Paper Edgers “Deckle”.

  1. Three fantastic designs, Izzy. I adore that first card, such a cute image with the chicks and ice cream tower and it is perfectly framed with that lovely stack of co-ordinating panels. The Vespa image makes a wonderfully fun card, I’ve never seen that one before. You really do have some great items in your stash, just like that deer, such a fun card for Trina’s birthday. Great work again this week xx

  2. Always a pleasure to look at your blog Izzy. And what a magnificent trio of cards you have to share today. Thanks for playing along with AAA Cards 3rd birthday celebrations.

  3. Three gorgeous cards, Izzy! I can’t believe how sweet your first one is with the adorable chicks stacking up the ice cream <3 Super use of layering to emphasise the challenge colours, too. Loving the Vespa, which looks rather fabulous in this colour scheme, and your clever use of the stencil to create the road. And your birthday card for Trina is awesome! Such a fab and funny deer! You've rocked the Neapolitan challenge! Have a good week x

  4. Every week three cards? You are one awesome and motivated DT member! You used those yummy colors in very different ways: The ice cream looks delicious and the chicks are adorable; yes, the Vespa reminds me of Italy (wouldn’t mind having one…), love the stenciled road; and the last one is fun with the birthday deer!

  5. Oh !… Trois cartes pleine d’humour !!!
    C’est ce qu’il fallait pour rèpondre à ce sujet pour le moins original !
    J’adore ta première carte qui appelle ces petits poussins au péché de la gourmandise 😂. Adorable….
    Bises tout plein.

  6. Wow Izzy, you’ve been busy with this color palette and with great results! I love the cute image of your first card and the layered frames really make it pop. Great watercoloring too! Your partial stenciling in the second card looks amazing and your final card makes me smile… That deer looks so cheerful! Great job with all of these!

  7. Superb ice-cream coloured inspiration Izzy. A wonderful trio. Love your watercoloured tower of ice cream with that little chick at the base collecting any drops! Brilliantly coloured Vespa and I love all the details you’ve used here in those yummy colours then last but not least that cute deer – winging his way to Trina. What a super fun and delightful card and thanks for sharing it with us at AAA Cards 3rd birthday challenge too. Have a great week. xx

  8. What a trio of wonderful inspiration Izzy! Your first card is so wonderful with those little chicks holding the ice-cream blobs and the cone; a totally adorable image and the layering is super too. Do you know….I adore the stamps you used this week. That Vespa is another gorgeous image, beautifully coloured and it was so clever to use the stencil for the road. The deer is such a cutie too and it is great to read that Trina loved it. xx

  9. I so enjoyed reading your post and looking at all 3 of your cards. Really love your ice cream card as that sentiment is so very true! Love your pink and brown scooter and those cute little present dies on your last card! Thanks for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday!

  10. Love all these cards, Izzy! So many great ideas. Those chicks are adorable. Who wouldn’t want a pink Vespa. And I LOVE, LOVE my birthday card, which I received before my birthday. I did send you an e-mail to let you know and say thank you. Did you not get it? Anyway, thank you once again for the cute birthday card and your birthday wishes. Enjoy your weekend.

  11. Wow, it’s our lucky day, Izzy! THREE pretty cards to inspire us! I have to say I especially love the first one with the little chicks trying to hold up the ice cream scoops! It gets my vote for most adorable card of 2017!! Hugs, Darnell
