Bubble background

Dear friends,

I am very late this week to post my card. There is a lot going on in our lives for the moment, everything gets turned upside down. I hardly find time to spend here in blogland and I miss it a lot. I will give you more info about what’s happening all around us soon, but meanwhile, here is my card. It is a card I used for the “household” class. It’s a class where I show my clients different ways to use every day products to make gorgeous cards. This one uses the bubble technique. I used liquid soap, water and a couple of re’inker drops to create this bubbled background. The punched border is made using the four petal flower from the punch pack SU punches.

Hope you like it! Have a great day,

Crealotte

Winter Wonderland Scrapbook Page

Hi everyone,

First day of the week for most of us. I sometimes really hate Mondays. Especially when I had a wonderful weekend. Yesterday, we went to the Lac Saint Joseph in Quebec and spent our afternoon on a boat with some friends. I will try to make my scrapbook page as soon as possible so I can share it with you soon. But today a whole other scrapbook page. I know I didn’t share scrapbook pages yet on my blog, but I promise to try to show you one from time to time. There is a scrapbook class coming up this fall, so I will be preparing different pages in the months to come. This one is from one of our snow journeys this winter. Another beautiful day: -20°C and full sun, just great! Although I love summer, I sometimes would love to experience one of those cold winter days again… But let’s not call for it, summer is great too :) !

Lots of pictures on this page and a bit dispersed, I know. I wanted to give it a spontaneous feeling as we didn’t organize this day at all, so I didn’t want to give my page an organized look neither… :)

On this page, I created snow using the tearing technique and addition of some stickles. The picture isn’t great but it really gives a wonderful look (and feeling) in real!

If you have any questions regarding this page, just shoot me an email!

See ya!

A baloon full of wishes

Hi everyone,

This week a card I made (some time ago) while thinking of my little brothers. I think they would really like it. I paper pieced the little boy’s clothes and used my copics to color in the rest of the image. I received the stamp  while purchasing a card making magazine, and I did not keep the wrapping, so unfortunately I can’t tell you from which company it is.

Hope you like this week’s card and I’ll be back next week!

Following your footsteps

Hi bloggies,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today a card I made for my best friend a while ago. I used masking to create the little footsteps along the road. I think it gives a nice look, hope you like it too…

See ya later…

Frozen Window

Hi everyone,

Today a card I made with a new stamp set I bought in Europe. Aren’t these little guys adorable? When I made this card, it was very cold up here in Canada and I wanted to make a card which shows how I feel. I used Copic markers for coloring. Except for my choice of stamps, I tried to give it a colder look by using the frozen window technique. Unfortunately, it isn’t very clear in the picture…

See ya!

Baby boy – Iris fold inspiration 2

Hi crafter friends,

I promised you a while back that I would share my second buggy card. This time I also made a picture of the inside… I love decorating the inside and the envelope, so that everything coordinates well together.

Tell me how you like it….

See ya later!

A flower for you

Hi bloggies,

Today a card which reminds me of spring. Not really the time yet, but I like to think of spring. The flowers coming out even after a harsh winter… Yeah, I know I am dreaming. Winter isn’t over yet… Don’t get me wrong, I love winter! It is just that the sunlight reflected on the snow gives me a warm feeling… But enough talking! Here it is and I hope you like it…

Until next time …

Folded Flower

Hi everyone,

It has been a while, I know. Therefore, first of all: HAPPY NEW YEAR! The Christmas period was wonderful. We went back to Europe for the Holidays and it was so great to see our family and friends. So no time to make cards :(… Since I am back from my vacation, I am so stressed out at work because I have terrible deadlines to keep. So no time nor inspiration to make cards :( … Therefore, this morning I was thinking that I could show you some of the cards I made last year (and which i didn’t show you yet). The first one is a birthday card on which I tested this folded flower. I think it gives nice results and I will definitely try it again some time. Hope you like it!

See ya!

Cloisonne butterfly

Hi stampers,

I am sharing a technique card today.  I mixed the sketch challenge from JUGS and the case study challenge for this one. The butterfly is made using the “ink cloisonne” technique (Don’t know how it is called exactly and I couldn’t find it on the internet, so “ink cloisonne” is the name I gave it. If anyone recognizes the technique and knows the exact name, please leave me a comment!). I used some distress ink (broken china and barn door) from Ranger for the coloring and an iron wire to make the antennas. The stamps are from Martha stewart and Stampin’up. Hope you like it.
