Je vous dédie à tous cette première carte. En effet je vous remercie tous infiniment pour vos commentaires si chaleureux et toujours très encourageants ! C’est grâce à vous tous et à votre merveilleuse créativité que j’en suis là ! Merci aussi à mes merveilleuses coéquipières qui m’ont fait confiance, j’ai la chance de faire partie d’une équipe formidable !

Thanks also to my wonderful teamies who trusted in me, I’m so blessed to be part of such a fabulous team !

 

Pour cette carte j’ai utilisé deux tampons de la dernière collection de Uniko. J’ai tamponné le tampon de fond avec de l’encre Versamark et j’ai embossé à chaud avec de la poudre blanche.

For this card I used two stamps from the latest release from Uniko. I stamped the background with Versamark and I white heat embossed.

J’ai ensuite utilisé la technique “emboss resist” en appliquant de l’encre Distress par dessus en faisant un dégradé de violet.

I then used the technique Emboss Resist by sponging over Distress ink and making a purple gradient.

J’ai appliqué la même encre sur les bords d’une double carte puis j’ai collé le motif dessus. J’ai découpé le mot “thanks” et je l’ai monté avec de la mousse. Puis j’ai rajouté la fin du sentiment tamponné et embossé à chaud avec de la poudre blanche.

I sponged the same ink on the edges of a double white card and I adhered the pattern over. I die cut the word “thanks” and I foam mounted it. Then I added the end of the sentiment previously stamped and white heat embossed.

Stamp: Uniko “’Large background Scattered Polka hearts” and “So Much” (December freebie) – Inks: Distress “Wilted violet” – Die: MFT “Thanks”.
Challenges :
Time Out #100: Thankful

2/ Happy Birthday

Pour cette carte j’ai été inspirée essentiellement par deux challenges CAS Mix Up Card et CAS Watercolour Card en utilisant la technique du premier et le thème du second.

For this card I’ve been inspired essentially by two challenges CAS Mix Up Card and CAS Watercolour Card using the technique of the first one and the theme of the second one.

 

Après avoir regardé les vidéos proposées dans le challenge de CAS Mix Up Card, je me suis lancée dans cette toute nouvelle technique (pour moi !) appelée Cling Wrap pour faire mon fond.

After watching the videos proposed in the challenge of CAS Mix Up Card, I tried out this new technique (for me!) called Cling Wrap to make my background.

J’ai utilisé de l’encre Distress, des pigments Brushos et j’ai vaporisé avec de l’eau mélangée avec de la poudre Perfect Pearls pour donner un effet chatoyant. J’ai laissé sécher avec le papier cellophane.

I used Distress ink, Brushos and I sprayed with water mixed with Perfect Pearls powder to give a shimmery effect. I let it dry with the Plasic Wrap.

Sur une feuille blanche j’ai tamponné la fleur et j’ai embossé à chaud avec de la poudre blanche puis je l’ai découpée avec la matrice correspondante. J’ai appliqué de l’encre Distress délicatement au coeur de la fleur et sur le bord des pétales.

On a white cardstock I stamped the flower, I white heat embossed it and I die cut it with the matching die. I softly sponged Distress ink in the middle of the flower and over the edge of the petals.

J’ai aussi découpé des herbes sauvages et un cadre avec des matrices.

I also die cut some wild grass and a frame.

J’ai tamponné et embossé le sentiment sur le bas du cadre. J’ai collé le fond violet à l’arrière du cadre puis j’ai collé le tout avec de la mousse sur une double carte blanche.

I stamped and I heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom of the frame. I adhered the purple background on the back of the frame and I foam mounted it over a white double card.

Pour finir j’ai collé les herbes sauvages et la fleur à cheval sur le fond et le cadre.

To finish I adhered the wild grass and the flower over the background and the frame.

Happy and honoured to be one of the Watercooler Rockers !

Stamp: Uniko “’Pure florals : Gerbera” and “Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum” (sentiment) – Inks: Distress “Wilted violet & Shaded Lilac” – Die: Uniko “Pure florals : Gerbera”, Simply Graphic “Herbes”- Pigments : Brushos “Purple & Violet”.

  1. 2 fabulous cards! You just rock making cards in different styles… It’s amazing! All the cute hearts in your first card really bring a smile on my face but the all the techniques in the second card… Wow! Great job! The long wrap bg turned out very interesting and beautiful and the soft, delicate flower really pops from it. Sorry for visiting so late this time… I hope you are having a fun week! xxx

  2. Une couleur absolument pas facile à scrapper et comme toujours tu l’ as utilisé avec brio et élégance sur tes deux cartes. Bravo !
    Belle, douce et merveilleuse année ma chère Izzy ! ✨
    Bises.

    PS: merci pour ton gentil commentaire sur mon blog. Nous sommes toutes, à un moment ou un autre, prises par le temps. Je ne voudrais pas que tu te mettes la pression pour être toujours présente par chez moi (même si tes visites me ravissent 😊).

  3. Happy New Year to you Izzy! I wish you lots of good things this year – happiness most of all, and then of course, health, wealth and crafty days! I am sorry to have not been over here in a little while, it all goes a bit crazy over Christmas doesn’t it and there are not so many days and hours to drool over people’s blog posts!

    I have to say I love the purple colour for this year. And I love your two cards! I saw Jennifer McGuire do the plastic wrap technique but have yet to try it – looks so interesting and yours came out really really well. You were brave to try it with Brusho! And your first card with the ombre blending and beautiful sentiment is timeless. Thank you for sharing and inspiring as always. Sending hugs, Lisa xx

  4. What gorgeous cards! I am always a huge purple fan and these cards are absolutely stunning! I love all the technique that went in to these! Fabulous! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday!

  5. I’m loving both cards Izzy, but the one with the flower and cling wrap background is really beautiful. I love the colour mix and the embossed and sponged flower is perfect. Very surreal. Thanks for playing along with us at the Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Challenge this week.

  6. Oh Isabelle, what a wonderfully vibrant background you’ve created! That cling wrap technique left some great lines and texture in the colours. A perfect background for the lovely white die-cuts. The sponged colours in the flower really show off the details of your heat embossing. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  7. I always forget to check the box below, so I end up commenting twice. Hopefully they don’t both show up! 🙂

    Your first Thanks card with the beautiful purple over the adorable hearts is so pretty, Izzy!! Thank you for all your inspirational cards over the past year!

    Your cling wrap background on the second card is AMAZING!! Such gorgeous colours and great design from the cling wrap. Love it paired with your beautiful flower. By sponging the center and tips, the white part of the flower looks translucent. Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercoldour! xx

  8. Simply gorgeous, Izzy. Love your ombré blending on your first card. Your cling wrap background on your second is stunning. Great job for your first try. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week. xx

  9. Such pretty blending on your first card and such an eye catching card. The second card is stunning…love the fun technique on the background and the delicate colouring of that pretty flower is beautiful x Happy New Year Izzy and looking forward to being continually inspired with your amazing talent x

  10. The soft ombré sponged background over those sweet little hearts is just a delight, Isabelle … and the delicately coloured gerbera against that striking cling wrap background is beautiful … what a stunner! You inspire with each card and each post, my friend! Bonne Année 2018 … bonne santé, grand joie et beaucoup de creativité! Hugs & bises, Anita 🙂

  11. Eye-poppingly stunning work again Izzy! Your purple thanks card with the ombre inked purple hearts and beautiful die-cut sentiment has me swooning! You’ve showcased the Uniko background brilliantly in that colour. Then WOW – how beautiful is the colouring of your gerbera and vibrant background on the second one! Love it. That clingwrap trick is awesome isn’t it … I’m just too impatient to leave it to dry naturally. Have a fun week and Happy New Year! x

  12. Izzy, both cards are gorgeous, I really love the soft shade of purple at the centre of our flower it makes it look so delicate. I also love the blending on your first, such a sweet card. thanks for joining us at CAS Watercolour and CAS Mix up 🙂

  13. This is such a pretty cling wrap background, Izzy! I love the colors and the way they mixed! And that flower is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour!

  14. Gorgeous cling wrap with Distress Inks and Brushos for your beautiful background, Izzy. Your heat embossed and die cut flower with your spray of wild flowers is so beautiful too. So pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour. TFS Hugs…

  15. Izzy! These areds are both absolutely wonderful. I am loving the Thankful card with the gradient purples. Perfect for the TO challenge – says it all!! The second is FANTASTIC! I just made a panel to use for the CAS Mix Up challenge with the cling wrap technique. I had never done that before. Now I just have to make the card. Two beauties. I love them both. Thanks for joining us at Time Out with your awesome Thankful card!

  16. These are stunning, Izzy! I love the vibrant purple against the hearts on your first card and your second card is beautiful with the delicate floral against the dramatic background. Great inspiration 🙂

  17. WOW! You’ve made my jaw drop again Izzy! I am drooling over your second card – it is incredible. What a stunning background and the delicate and dreamy floral is divine with it. That card is ‘right up my street’ as we say in the UK (meaning I love it). Your first card is delightful too with such pretty ink blending and perfect embossing. Fab work once again xx
