1/ Happy Birthday

 

Pour cette première carte j’ai fait très simple, j’ai posé un pochoir sur la double carte blanche et j’ai appliqué les encres Distress à l’aide d’une brosse à pochoir. J’ai tamponné le sentiment en noir et j’ai ajouté quelques sequins pour finir la carte !

I made this first card very simple, I put the stencil over the double white card and I brushed Distress inks on top of it. I stamped the sentiment in black and to finish the card I added some sequins !

 

 

Stamps:  Uniko “Birthday sentiments” – Stencil: Heidi Swapp “flower”  – Inks : Distress “Spiced marmalade, Peeled paint”.

2/ C’est ça, le bonheur

Pour cette seconde carte, j’ai choisi un design un peu plus “grunge” ! Sur une feuille de papier aquarelle préalablement humidifiée avec un pinceau et de l’eau, j’ai saupoudré des pigments Brushos et j’ai vaporisé de l’eau par dessus. J’ai séché avec le pistolet à air chaud. Une fois sec, j’ai tamponné le sentiment.

For this second card, I chose a design a little bit “grunge” ! On a watercolour paper previously moistened with a brush and water, I sprinkled some Brushos pigments and sprayed water over it. I dried with the heat gun. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment.

Sur un autre morceau de papier aquarelle, j’ai tamponné le verre en noir et j’ai embossé. J’ai ensuite tamponné l’olive en vert et j’ai embossé. La tranche d’orange est aussi tamponnée en orange et embossée. L’embossage me permet ensuite de colorer les différents éléments avec de l’encre Distress et de l’eau. Puis je les ai découpés à la main.

On another piece of watercolour paper, I stamped in black and heat embossed the glass. Then I stamped the olive in green and I heat embossed. The orange slice is also stamped in orange and heat embossed. Embossing enabled me to watercolour the different elements with Distress and water. Then I fussy cut them.

J’ai recouvert le dessus de la double carte avec un papier orange puis j’ai collé l’aquarelle dessus. Pour finir j’ai collé le verre et la tranche d’orange avec de la mousse adhésive.

I covered the top of the double card with an orange card stock, then I adhered the watercolour panel on top of it. To finish, I foam mounted the glass and the orange slice.

Une bonne boisson fraiche quand il fait bien chaud, c’est ça le bonheur !

A good cold drink when it’s hot, that’s happiness !

Stamps:  SSS “Adult beverages”, Simply Graphic “Planche cocooning et son die” (sentiment) –  Inks : Distress “Spiced marmalade, Peeled paint” – Brushos: “Olive green”.

3/ Heureux anniversaire

Je me suis souvenue soudain que j’avais reçu récemment ces jolies tranches d’agrumes et ça m’a donné envie de faire une carte bien juteuse !

I suddenly remembered that I had recently received these lovely slices of citrus and it made me want to make a juicy card !

Une de mes amies fête très prochainement son anniversaire et je sais qu’elle adore ce combo de couleurs et ce genre de fond ! Alors, ni une, ni deux, j’ai utilisé la technique “Splash Watercolouring” de Loll dans le challenge en cours chez CAS watercolour pour faire mon fond.

One of my friends is celebrating her birthday very soon and I know she loves this combo of colours and that kind of background ! So, neither one nor two, I used Loll’s “Splash Watercolouring” technique in the current challenge at CAS watercolour to make my background.

Ensuite dans des papiers orange et vert, j’ai découpé avec les matrices les 2 tranches d’agrumes et dans du papier blanc j’ai découpé les herbes folles style Scandinave (dont elle raffole aussi !) avec des matrices.

Then I die cut the two slices of citrus in orange and green card stocks and I die cut a trio of Scandinavian wild grass (she loves them !) in a white card stock.

J’ai tamponné le sentiment en gris sur la double carte blanche, j’ai collé avec de la mousse le fond aquarelle et j’ai collé les herbes et les agrumes dessus !

I stamped the sentiment in grey over the double white card, I foam mounted the watercolour background and I glued the wild grass and the citrus on top of it !

Dies:  4enScrap “Tranches d’agrumes”, Simply Graphic “Trio scandinave” –  Inks : Distress “Spiced marmalade, Peeled paint” – Stamp:  Simply Graphic “planche anniversaire” (sentiment).

  8. No surprise, Izzy, your cards with this colour combo are astounding! Superb stencilling on your first. Beautiful Brusho background for a grunge look on your second. And your third is simply sensational! With the citrus theme, you should enter it in the currentbJust Us Girls challenge. Fantastic job, Izzy! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xx

  9. Oh My, but I LOVE all your orange and tangerine cards, Izzy. Thank you so much for sharing your last really cool Splash Watercoloured Background card with your slices of fruit with us at CAS Watercolour. You sure looked like you had fun creating so many Summer time beauties. Hugs..

  10. Hi Isabelle, what a beautifully stencilled creation! I love the clean and simple design and, of course, the bright colours. Thanks so much for joining our Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge this week.

  11. Wow Izzy, what a stunning trio of cards! That first card which you’ve stencilled is so beautifully clean and simple and makes wonderful use of the colours in your colour challenge. Love the way you’ve kept it to a single layer, simply stamping the sentiment. And of course, those sequins add just the right dazzle. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  12. The stencilling and colours on your first card is so pretty and absolutely CAS perfection. Love the grunge effect on your second card with those glorious brusho’s….Looks like how one might feel after a couple of those gin and tonics x. The splash technique is fabulous on the third card and is a wonderful background for those fun citrus fruits…also like how you did the additional die cuts in the white. Enjoyed reading your post and such stunning inspiration….Thank you x

  13. Oh my goodness! Another superb selection of fantastic cards from you Izzy. I can’t get enough of looking at that stunning brushos card!!! I’m not sure if it the artiness, the look of depth in that panel or the tangerine card base that keeps pulling me back to that one but I adore it. Your stencilling is super soft and feminine and the background behind the citrus images looks like you’ve just squeezed their juice. Fabulous! Have a great week xx

  14. Such artistic cards from you Izzy, you’ve really brought this color combo alive! I love your use of dies in the last card -such a pretty, layered CAS look. Your grungy brusho card is super fun too. Well done keeping the colors so fresh -I tend to use too much water with my brushos and the colors turn into mud! 🙂 Love the soft stenciling in your first card too. xxx
