Voici les trois cartes que je me suis amusée à faire avec ce sketch.

Here are the three cards that I had fun to do with this sketch.

1/ Heureux anniversaire

J’ai tout bêtement suivi le sketch en utilisant ce magnifique jeu de tampons de chez Uniko. J’ai tamponné le plus grand des motifs directement sur la double carte avec de l’encre Versamark et j’ai embossé avec de la poudre argentée.

I simply reproduced the sketch using this beautiful stamp set from Uniko. I stamped the larger motif directly onto the double card with Versamark ink and I heat embossed with silver powder.

J’ai fait la même chose avec les 2 autres motifs sur une feuille à part et je les ai découpé à la main. J’ai collé le plus petit directement sur la carte et j’ai monté le moyen avec de la mousse adhésive.

I did the same thing with the two other motifs on a separate sheet of paper and I fussy cut them. I glued the smaller one directly onto the card and I foam mounted the intermediate one.

Pour finir j’ai tamponné et embossé en turquoise le sentiment sur une bande de papier bleu, puis je l’ai collé avec de la mousse adhésive. J’ai mis des gouttes de Novo Crystal drops au centre des motifs ainsi que sur la carte.

To finish I stamped and I heat embossed in turquoise the sentiment over a strip of blue paper, then I foam mounted it. I put some Nuvo Crystal drops on the center of the motifs as well as on the card.

Stamps: Uniko “Decorative doilies – the hands of time”, Simply Graphic “Planche anniversaire” (sentiment) – Embellishments : Nuvo Crystal drops “Caribbean ocean”, Hero Arts EP “Silver”.

2/ Happy Birthday

Comme je vous le disais dans un précédent post, les mois d’avril, mai et juin sont des mois très chargés en anniversaire, alors les sentiments varient très peu, seulement dans la langue 😀 !

As I told you in a previous post, the months of April, May and June are very busy months in birthdays, so the sentiments vary very little, only in the language 😀!

Sur la double carte j’ai tamponné la plus grosse fleur en rose clair. Puis sur une feuille séparée j’ai tamponné la fleur rose foncé et les feuilles et je les ai découpées avec les matrices de découpe correspondantes.

On the double card I stamped the bigger flower in soft pink. Then on a separate sheet, I stamped the dark pink flower and the leaves and I die cut them with the matching dies.

J’ai collé les feuilles sur la carte et j’ai monté la deuxième fleur et le sentiment avec de la mousse adhésive. Pour finir j’ai mis quelques gouttes de Novo Crystal drops.

I glued the leaves on the card and I foam mounted the second flower and the sentiment. To finish, I put some Nuvo Crystal drops.

Stamps: Uniko “Beautiful blooms I and matching dies” & “Simply said blocks” (sentiment) – Inks : Catherine Pooler “Party dress, It’s a girl, Lime Rickey, Grass skirt” – Embellishments : Nuvo Crystal drops “Carnation pink, Rhubarb crumble, Apple green”.

3/ Hakuna Matata

Tout le monde connaît ce refrain et il se trouve que ma fille me l’a mis le week end dernier dans la tête…et la carte est née !

Everyone knows this refrain and it turns out that my daughter put it in my mind last weekend … and the card is born !

Sur un papier multimedia j’ai appliqué des encres Distress Oxide afin de faire un lever de soleil. Puis j’ai découpé à l’aide d’une matrice.

On a multimedia paper I blended Distress Oxide inks to make a sunrise. Then I die cut it.

Avant de coller cette découpe sur la carte, j’ai tamponné les silhouettes en noir sur la double carte. Puis j’ai placé la découpe et j’ai de nouveau tamponné les silhouettes qui se trouve dessus.

Before adhering this die cut on the card, I stamped the silhouettes in black on the double card. Then I placed back the die cut and I stamped again the silhouettes.

Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment avec les mêmes encres Distress Oxide.

Finally I stamped the sentiment with the same Distress Oxide inks.

  4. Fabulous, fabulous and fabulous! What great work and three once again! Love that blue card, so stylish and the nuvo drops in that shade look so great with the deep blue and silver. You can’t go wrong with florals and this one is a true beauty. And what a creative use of the sketch for your third, the silhouettes and the African sky look fantastic xx

  5. You were on fire again this week Izzy! I love your elegant blue and silver card because it is so classy and the heat embossing is so crisp. Your floral card is beautiful and feminine. But…. WOW! what a stunner that hakuna matata card is! I can feel the African heat from here! That’s an incredible sunrise and it was so clever to use all the animals for the different parts of the sketch. Love it xx

  6. A delicious trio, Isabelle … the silver on blue is so elegant and delicate, tiny touches of turquoise really pop … and that cluster of lovely blooms is so pretty. What a fabulous wild scene … you captured beautifully the feel of the Serengeti Plain with your gorgeous blended sunrise and the animals silhouetted against it … brilliant! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Bises et hugs, Anita 🙂

  7. Hi Izzy, this sketch is a fabulous one, not least because you show it off with all three of your fabulous cards. I love the different ways you used it – all of them are gorgeous. You know me, I always love to see florals on a card but I also really like the striking blue card – I think this would be a great card for both men and women. And your final card – well we have the same stamp wish list it seems! I got this amazing set from Hero Arts for my birthday, but I love your design and the way you lifted the grass up a little. It’s visually stunning. I have not managed to use my sets yet! Thank you for sharing your talents with us, Lisa xx
