Less is More #415 – Colours

Bonjour !

Un bien joli défi commence aujourd’hui chez Less is More avec un thème sur les couleurs rouge, framboise et grise.

Hello !

A very beautiful challenge starts today at Less is More with a theme on colours Red, Raspberry & Grey.

Notre sponsor pour le mois de Mars n’est autre que CAS-ual Fridays.

Our sponsor for the month of March is CAS-ual Fridays.

Voici mes cartes / Here are my cards

1/ There is no limit to your awesomeness (using sponsor stamps)

Pour mettre en valeur ce magnifique tampon de fond de notre sponsor, j’ai décidé d’utiliser des encres à Alcool. Mais cette fois-ci au lieu d’utiliser la technique pour retirer l’encre, j’ai opté pour de l’embossage en blanc.

To highlight this gorgeous background stamp from our sponsor, I decided to use Alcohol inks. But this time, instead of using the Alcohol ink lifting technique, I chose to  heat white emboss the whole panel.

J’ai découpé à la main le contour des fleurs des bords puis j’ai coupé deux bandes. J’ai collé une bande de papier gris sous chaque morceau et je les ai collé sur la carte de telle sorte qu’ils encadrent le sentiment préalablement tamponné en gris.

I fussy cut the outlines of the flowers from the borders then I cut two strips. I glued a strip of grey card stock under each piece and I adhered these pieces on the card so that they frame the sentiment previously stamped in grey.

Stamp: CAS-ual Fridays “Full on floral” & “Mon ami” (sentiment) – Alcohol Inks: Tim Holtz “Raspberry, Red pepper”, Altenew “Silver Stone”.

2/ C’est la fête !

Pour cette seconde carte, j’ai tamponné cet adorable lémurien que j’ai coloré en gris puis avec des crayons Zig j’ai coloré le chapeau en rose framboise et le ballon en rouge. Afin de le faire ressortir j’ai fait un fond avec des encres Distress rouge et framboise.

For this second card, I stamped this adorable lemur that I’ve coloured in grey then with Zig pens I coloured the hat and the ballon respectively in raspberry and red. In order to pop it up, I made a background with red and raspberry Distress inks.

J’ai tamponné le sentiment sur une bande de papier noir et je l’ai embossé avec de la poudre argent.

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black card stock and I silver heat embossed it.

Stamp: Create a Smile “Little Lemur”, Altenew “Label love french” (sentiment) – Inks: Distress “Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries” – Brush pens: Zig Clean color brush “#020, 022, 025, 202” – Colour pencils: Faber-Castell Polychromos “#101, 132, 230.231, 232, 233”.

3/ Tous nos voeux

Pour cette dernière carte, je me suis inspirée du défi de CAS Christmas qui souhaite voir des fleurs d’hiver sur nos cartes. J’ai donc utilisé ce joli tampon d’Uniko pour faire mes deux fleurs de poinsettia : une en rouge et l’autre en rose. Puis je les ai coupé à la main.

For this last card, I get inspired by the CAS Christmas challenge that wants to see winter flowers on our cards. Then I used this pretty stamp from Uniko to make my two flowers of poinsettia : one in red and the other one in pink. Then I fussy cut them.

Sur la double carte blanche, j’ai tamponné des feuillages du même set en gris puis en gris argenté. J’ai ensuite collé les deux fleurs avec de la mousse adhésive et j’ai tamponné le sentiment en gris argenté.

On a double white card, I stamped the foliage of this set in grey and in silver grey. Then I foam mounted the two flowers and I stamped the sentiment in silver grey.

Stamp: Uniko  “Season of Beauty”, Simply Graphic “Planche voeux assortis” (sentiment) – Inks: Distress “Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries”, Altenew “Silver stone”, Delicata “Silvery shimmer” – Embellishments: Micro silver beads.

  1. Wow, all of these cards are fabulous, Izzy. I didn’t find this colour combo very easy but you’ve made three great designs. I particularly love the first one, those alcohol inks are so vibrant xx

  2. A post filled with inspiration from you Izzy, as always! I think the third card is my favorite -I would have never thought of making a Christmas card with these colors but it looks absolutely perfect! I need to remember this! Wonderful use of alcohol inks too in your first card. Thank you for your inspiring crafting company at LIM and I’ll see you in blogland for sure!

  3. All your cards are beautiful! I especially love the alcohol inks with the white embossing! Thanks for joining us at Merry Little Christmas challenges

  4. Super-dooper cards Izzy. The richness of the colours on the first card contrast beautifully with the delicate stamping and images on the last. Then you give us a fun card in the middle. Perfect inspiration and wonderful variety too – I love it xx

  5. Fabulous set of cards Izzy! You’ve been busy and having lots of fun! 🙂 Your winter flower card is beautiful with this set of colours. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! xx

  6. Gorgeous! Each and every one Izzy! Thanks for linking up that adorable cheeky critter card at AAA Cards, please come back and play in future challenge too.

  7. What a wonderful trio of cards, Izzy. I love the way you split and fussy cut that floral background. The inking looks amazing. I am wondering how you applies the inks? With a brush, or applicator? It looks amazing. I am in love with that lemur, and I love the challenge colors and the poinettias too. Beautiful art, as always.

  8. A triple treat today, Izzy! Wonderfully rich AI colour on the borders around the sentiment panel … the white embossing is lovely against it (and beautifully done … my yupo always melts!). That dancing lemur is cute and so much fun … and those outline poinsettia are elegant and dreamy! A fabulous showcase! Grosses bises, Anita 🙂
