Carte/Card

November 2017 Design Team Blog Hop

Bonjour !

Je suis là avec le post DT Blog Hop du mois de Novembre chez Uniko. Aujourd’hui nous fêtons plusieurs produits de la dernière sortie d’Octobre…

Hello !

I’m here for the November DT Blog Hop post at Uniko. Today we are celebrating several products from the last October release…

     

Je dois dire que je me suis bien amusée avec tous ces produits et voici ce que je vous ai préparé :

I must say that I had a lot of joy playing with all these products and here is what I came up with :

Snowflake trio shaker card

Avec ce gros flocon du set “Snowflake Trio” je n’ai pas pu m’empêcher de faire une shaker card et de mettre en son centre la découpe du plus petit flocon sur lequel j’ai mis du Stickles.

With this big snowflake from the “Snowflake Trio” set,  I could not help but make a shaker card and put in the center the die cut of the smallest snowflake on which I put Stickles.

Die:  Uniko “Snowflake trio” – Embellishment: Little Things from Lucy’s Cards sequins “Glacier, Snowdrift, Itty Bitty Stars-Clear iridescent”, Stickles “Icicle”.
Challenge:
Cute Card Thursday #503 : Sparkles
Tuesday Throwdown #368 : Shaker card

  

Snowflakes over bokeh background

L’arrière plan des flocons est fait avec des encres Distress et j’ai utilisé le pochoir “Scattered Polka Dots” et de l’encre blanche pour faire l’effet Bokeh. Les flocons sont coupés avec la matrice “Snowflake trio” et sont recouverts de Wink of Stella (malheureusement pas visible sur la photo). Le sentiment provient du set “Pure Floral: Poinsettia”.

The background is made with Distress inks and I used the “Scattered Polka Dots” stencil and white ink to make the Bokeh look. The snowflakes are die cut from the “Snowflake trio” die and I brushed over some Wink of Stella (unfortunately not visible on the picture). The sentiment is from the “Pure Floral: Poinsettia” set.

Die:  Uniko “Snowflake trio”Stencil : Uniko “Scattered polka dots”Stamp : Uniko “Pure Floral: Poinsettia” (sentiment) –  Inks : Distress “Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Tumbled Glass”, Hero Arts “Unicorn”, Brilliance “Moonlight white” –  Embellishment: Kuretake “Wink of Stella”.

Scattered polka dots Happy birthday card

Les gros pois du pochoir “Scattered Polka Dots” une fois colorés me font penser à des Smarties et donc à du sucré et aux anniversaires ! J’ai coloré seulement la partie basse de la carte avec des encres Distress. Sur un autre papier j’ai tamponné et embossé le gâteau du set “Celebrate with Cake” et je l’ai collé avec de la mousse adhésive sur la carte.

The big polka dots of the stencil “Scattered Polka Dots”, once coloured, remind me of Smarties and so of sweets and of birthdays! I colored the lower part of the card with Distress inks. On another paper I stamped and heat embossed the cake from the set “Celebrate with Cake” and I foam mounted it on the card.

 Stencil : Uniko “Scattered polka dots”Stamps : Uniko “Celebrate with cake”, “Festive sentiments & Simply said blocks” (sentiment) –  Inks : Distress “Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, Cracked Pistachio, Worn lipstick, Twisted citron, Mustard Seed, Spun sugar, Abandoned coral, Picked raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Spiced marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade”, Versafine “Onyx Black” –  Embellishment: Hero arts “white” EP.

Wonky Stripes Plaid  & Flower Power #1 matching die Christmas card

En voyant le pochoir “Wonky stripes”, j’ai tout de suite pensé aux rayures d’un plaid écossais en l’utilisant dans les 2 sens. De même que ces petites fleurs du set “Flower Power #1”, découpées avec les matrices correspondantes, me font penser à un poinsettia un peu “rustique”. J’ai rajouté le magnifique sentiment du set “Festive sentiments” et les feuilles de houx du set “Winter Foliage” et j’ai une carte pour Noël en plus dans mon stock !

Seeing the stencil “Wonky stripes”, I immediately thought of the stripes of a Scottish plaid using it in both directions. Just as these little flowers from the “Flower Power # 1” set and die cut with the matching die remind me of a little “rustic” poinsettia. I added the beautiful sentiment of the set “Festive sentiments” and the holly leaves of the set “Winter Foliage” and I have one more card for Christmas in my stock!

 Stencil : Uniko “Wonky stripes”Stamps : Uniko “Flower Power #1 & Winter Foliage“, “Festive sentiments” (sentiment) –  Inks : Distress “Twisted citron & Picked raspberry”, Versafine “Onyx Black” –  Die: Uniko “Flower power #1-#6 collection”, SSS “Stitched squares”.

Wonky Stripes border & Flower power #3 matching die

Le pochoir “Wonky Stripes” est aussi idéal pour faire des bordures aux cartes. Avec une bande de masquage on peut faire la bordure de la taille qu’on désire. Je n’ai pas pu m’empêcher de jouer avec les matrices correspondantes au set “Flower Power #3” et donc avec les couleurs d’Uniko. C’est un petit clin d’oeil pour Bev qui nous enchante avec ses magnifiques produits !

The stencil “Wonky Stripes” is also ideal to make borders on the cards. With a masking tape we can make the border the size we wish. I couldn’t help but play with the matching dies of the “Flower Power #3” set and then with the colours of Uniko. It’s a little wink for Bev who delights us with her beautiful products!

 Stencil : Uniko “Wonky stripes”Stamps : Uniko “Flower Power #3”Nature treasures II & Originally organic additions” (foliage), “Simply said blocks” (sentiment) –  Inks : Distress “Picked raspberry”, Altenew “Mountain mist, Volcano lake” –  Die: Uniko “Flower power #1-#6 collection”.
 Flower power #4 stamp and matching die

Après avoir créer le papier imprimé du fond avec le tampon “Flower Power #4”, j’ai tamponné la fleur de ce set sur 3 papiers de couleurs différentes, je les ai embossées à la poudre blanche puis découpées avec la matrice correspondante pour les monter sur la carte avec de la mousse adhésive.

After having created the patterned background paper with the stamp “Flower Power #4”, I stamped the flower of this set over 3 papers of different colours, I heat embossed them with white powder then I die cut them with the matching die to foam mounted them over the card.

Stamps : Uniko “Flower Power #4”, “Flower Power #6” (Leaves), Simply graphic “Planche un petit coucou” –  Inks : Altenew “Limestone, Volcano lake” –  Die: Uniko “Flower power #1-#6 collection”, MFT “Stitched Scallop Basic edge”.

Flower power #6 stamp and matching die

Cette dernière carte je l’ai voulue toute simple pour mettre en évidence cette jolie rose du set “Flower Power #6” et qui dit rose rouge dit amour, d’où le sentiment ! J’ai donc tamponné la rose sur un papier légèrement irisé et je l’ai découpé avec la matrice correspondante. Sur la double carte irisée j’ai tamponné en vert la tige et ses pétales. J’ai collé la rose sur la tige avec de la mousse adhésive. Puis j’ai tamponné le sentiment, qui vient du set “Flower Power #3”, sur une bande de papier noir et je l’ai embossé.

I wanted this last card very simple to highlight this beautiful rose from the set “Flower Power #6” and who says red rose says love, hence the sentiment ! So I stamped the rose over a slightly iridescent paper and I die cut it with the matching die. On the double iridescent card I stamped the stem and its petals in green. I foam mounted the rose over the stem. Then I stamped the sentiment, which is from the “Flower Power #3” set, over a black strip and I heat embossed it.

Stamps : “Flower Power #6”, “Flower Power #3” (sentiment) –  Inks : Altenew “Ruby red”, Brilliance “Pearlescent Thyme” –  Die: Uniko Flower power #1-#6 collection”.

  1. OMG! I’m here at last and how could I miss such beauty in this post IZZY. It’s been busy catching up with Anita and Kylie but I’m totally inspired now to get crafty again especially after looking through these stunning Uniko inspired makes. All so different, fun and elegant. Absolutely adore your bokeh background snowflake cards but they all have the X-factor for me! Hugs xx

  2. You have turned into a real card making machine, dear Izzy!
    The snowflake shaker is gorgeous and sparkly, the bokeh background perfect for the snowflakes, the polka dotted cup cake card so much fun, your use of the striped stencil to make a plaid background very creative, and the flower cards are all very pretty!

  3. Oh you have been busy creating!!! I am dropping in to tell you Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown with your lovely shaker card- love what you have done here- the shimmer around the border really sets your shaker off! I also really love your other cards posted- love the bohek so much !!!
    Shelly Tuesday Throwdown DT

  4. Hi Izzy – I’m back for ‘second helpings’ of gazing at and admiring your stunning cards! This visit, I’m especially captivated by the snowflakes on the bokeh wintry wonderland background which is a most impressive way to ‘make your mark’! So thrilled you joined us in the Addicted to Stamps and More gallery!
    Hugs~carol (and a big HUG and thank you for your sweet comments on my blog! You made my day sparkle!!)

  5. WOW! What an amazing showcase Izzy 🙂
    I am loving your snowflake shaker card, something I had not thought of doing and might just have to CASE this idea 😉
    Your Bokeh background with the Scattered Polka Dot stencil and the snowflake die cut is to die for, simply creative and stunning.
    Loving your colour choices for the Flower Power cards and inspirational layouts too. You have really done Uniko proud and I am so blessed to have you on the DT. Hugs Bev x

  6. I don’t know how you do it Izzy, you make so many beautiful cards. It takes me a week to make 2! All your cards have something to delight on them, either the colours, the layout, the choice of stamp, or just simply the creativity of using stamps in a slightly different way. You always make something that I want to try! I just LOVE that bokeh background – I really have not mastered this yet with white ink (I think mine may be little dry). Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us, a gorgeous set of cards.

  7. What an amazing selection of cards, Izzy – such a wonderful showcase of Uniko products! I really love the bokeh look that you achieved with the scattered dots….I must try that and your inking on the colourful birthday card is perfect 🙂 The wonky plaid that you have created looks really cool – I did that on a baby card in pastel shades but I like the bold colours that you have used much more 🙂 It was a treat to visit your blog today x

  8. Wow, Isabelle … such loveliness … and such variety … your versatility shines through this fabulous collection! The florals are so pretty, the wonky striped ‘plaid’ is clever and cool, and those snowflake cards … wow … one so shimmery and sparkly, the other so stylish with the bokeh background! You could enter these two at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday this week … our theme is Snow White (all things snow related!). Bon dimanche! Hugs & Bises, Anita 🙂

  9. Oh wow! You have the most wonderful array of cards, I’m totally impressed by your post. Loving the shaker snowflake, so beautifully sparkly. Thanks for linking one of your cards up at AAA Cards.

  10. GASP! Talk about an impressive array of cards, Izzy…and each one showcases not only the products, but the vast range of your crafting style! The shaker is especially eye-catching and oh, how I’m crushing over the plaid made with the wonky stripes! Marveling….
    Hugs~carol

  11. Ohh my my.. Izzy your work has always made me go ..WOW!! I recently had to give a presentation on French culture and I kept thinking about asking you more about it.. but I was short of time.. I must say I have always admired all things French..but I love your country now!
