les fleurs

capture-decran-2016-10-28-a-16-56-47This week I created my style to two fun capture-decran-2016-10-28-a-16-56-57blogs:

ColourQ Challenge #365 &                CAS(E) this Sketch! #196

Making my own hearts stencil, I applied modelling paste with clear rock candy glitter for the horizontal piece on my folded white card base.  Then I water coloured the die-cut flowers in Basic Black, Concord Grape, Tangerine Tango & Crushed Curry.   Following the curve of the stems, “les fleurs” (flowers) was stamped in black onyx Versafine ink.  Hope you enjoy, have a great weekend 😉

Souvenir

capture-decran-2016-10-09-a-12-05-45My last post in October, as a Guest Designer for CAS Colours & Sketches, leaves me with a beautiful “Souvenir” of the awesome Design Team from this fun challenge blog.  This card is for these creative people and to say THANKS 😉  for this fun journey!

I die-cut 3 Sizzix wild flowers in watercolour paper and painted them with Zig Clean Color Brushes. Then the stitched horizontal strip of vellum was white heat embossed towards the bottom left with a grass edge stamp.   Green ink splatters were placed to the upper half of the white card stock base.  Once the 3 flowers were dry, they were adhered to the left, just under the grass on the vellum.  The word die “Souvenir”, on the bottom right of the card, was also white heat embossed to match the grassy pasture and mounted, just off, an olive green word die cut.

I can’t wait to see your cards creations for this week’s sketch challenge #197.

Thanks for stopping by, happy card making 😀  HUGz Joanna

Fight like a girl

capture-decran-2016-10-22-a-10-42-24With October being national Capture d’écran 2016-08-07 à 17.23.16Breast Cancer awareness month, the CAS-ual Fridays #159 is pink this week 😀  Plus, the Less is More Challenge #299 recipe is ACETATE or VELLUM.      A VELLUM tag was stamped and silver pearl heat embossed with autumn leaves.  Flipping the tag around, I used Chrissie’s recipe by using alcohol ink to stamp the hearts behind the leaves.  A white eyelet was fastened to the tag to thread a coral string with beads.  The white card base was etched with MFT’s stitched border and a strip of coral card stock tucked underneath.  The tag was adhered with the word die “hugs” to support all of these courageous ladies… losta luv always helps 😉

This card was also entered in the Simon Wednesday Challenge blog 🙂

Papillon

capture-decran-2016-10-21-a-12-59-36ColourQ’s palette #364 of Basic Black, capture-decran-2016-10-21-a-12-59-22Lovely Lilac, Pumpkin Pie & Tempting Turquoise were ideal for this die-cut butterfly.  So using Linda’s Freshly Made Sketch #259, it was the perfect setting for a fluttery pause.  The 3 bright colours were applied on the watercolour paper die-cut and the black card-stock was used for the insect’s body. This piece was clear heat embossed twice.  For the white card base, embossing paste was applied above an MFT stitched border.  Two circle die-cuts in vellum and shimmer white paper (die cut again with an octagon die) were the seat of the butterfly.
