Twofer Card Challenge #12 GD – Birds

Bonjour !

J’ai eu la chance d’être l’heureuse gagnante du défi Twofer Card Challenge en octobre avec CES cartes et aujourd’hui je suis très excitée, ravie et honorée d’être l’Invitée Créatrice de Darnell et de sa merveilleuse équipe pour le défi #12 du mois de Janvier !

Hello !

I have been the lucky winner of the October Twofer Card Challenge with THESE cards and today I’m very exited, delighted and honoured to be the Guest Designer of Darnell and her wonderful team for the challenge #12 of the month of January !

Le thème de ce mois-ci est Oiseaux et voici mes cartes.

The theme for this month is Birds and here are my cards.

Vous trouverez dans CE post une présentation très détaillée et précise (bravo Darnell !) des règles du jeu pour les défis Twofer Card Challenge dont les bases sont résumées dans le badge ci-joint.

You will find in THIS post a very detailed and precise presentation (bravo Darnell !) of the rules of the game for the Twofer Card Challenges whose basics are summarized in the attached badge.

1/ You make my heart flutter

J’apprécie d’autant plus ce thème puisque pour faire cette carte je n’ai utilisé que des produits NBUS (acronyme de Darnell pour dire jamais utilisé avant) !

I especially love this theme because to make this card I only used NBUS products (Darnell’s acronym) !

J’ai tout d’abord fait le fond en utilisant un pochoir en appliquant l’encre de façon dégradée. Puis j’ai tamponné le sentiment.

I first made the background using a stencil and sponging the ink in a gradient way. Then I stamped the sentiment.

J’ai découpé les oiseaux avec des matrices. Je les ai remis dans leur emplacement et j’ai déposé les tampons correspondant dessus pour les tamponner (plus facile dans cet ordre et moins de risque de couper sur les lignes). J’ai aussi découpé les mini étiquettes avec des matrices et j’ai tamponné les lettres dessus. Le coeur fait partie intégrante de la matrice.

I die cut the birds and I put them back in the die cut space to stamp the corresponding images on top (easier in this order and less risk to cut over the outlines). I also die cut the mini tags and I stamped the letters. The heart is an integral part of the die.

J’ai coloré les oiseaux avec des crayons de couleur et le coeur la même encre Distress que le fond. J’ai attaché les tags avec un fil argenté et j’ai collé l’ensemble avec des Glue Dots et de la mousse adhésive.

I coloured the birds with colour pencils and the heart with the same Distress ink than the background. I tied the tags with a silver thread and I adhered all the pieces with Glue Dots and adhesive foam.

Pour finir j’ai collé ce panel sur une double carte grise.

To finish I glued this panel on a double grey card.

2/ Happy bird-day

Pour cette deuxième carte j’ai utilisé ces adorables oiseaux en “pièce montée” sur le bord de la vasque comme un gâteau sur un plat.

For this second card I used these adorable birds on the edge of the basin like a wedding-cake layers on its plate.

J’ai tout d’abord tamponné les différents éléments sur des post-it afin d’en faire des masks pour construire cette petite scène directement sur la double carte blanche. Avant d’enlever tous les masks, j’ai fait le ciel en utilisant une découpe de nuage et de l’encre Distress.

I first stamped the different images on post-it notes in order to use them as masks to build this little scene directly over the double white card. Before removing all the masks, I made the sky sponging Distress ink over a cloud die cut.

Puis j’ai découpé le cadre trois fois et je les ai collés ensemble avant de le coller autour de la scène. J’ai tamponné et embossé le sentiment en blanc sur un morceau de papier préalablement teinté avec de l’encre Distress.

Then I die cut three times the frame and I glued them together before adhering it to frame the scene. I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment over a label previously sponged with Distress.

Stamps : Clearly Besotted  “Bird Bath″ – Pencils : Faber-Castell Polychromos “#147, 110, 145, 147, 120, 266, 106, 108, 109, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234” – Dies : MFT “Stitched mini scallop rectangle”, Quickutz “Nesting card templates”, MB “Puffy clouds” – Inks : Distress “Salty ocean, Twisted citron”.
