Altenew February 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Hi there!

Happy Friday to you!

Time to share the card I made for this month's Altenew inspiration challenge  :





Debby provided the inspiration this month. A beautiful Azalea as a single focal point. I wanted to reflect that in my design , and of course the fabulous color palette .

More hearts!

Hi there!

I'm making the most of the opportunity February provides to make and share love themed cards 😍

Here's another one!








This card came together in a jiffy ! I smooshed the watercolor paper a while ago for a background for another project which didn't happen because I wasn't too crazy about the look. And then yesterday I decided to cut out some hearts from it... and voila! I loved it! Lesson learned... keep those 'unsuccessful' pieces and die cut it! Oh yes and ♥'s make anything look better!


I used:
  • Rescued watercolor background (smooshed with Zigs and spritzed with water)
  • Sentiment from a Hampton arts stamp set
  • Sizzix heart dies
  • Silhouette cut bow
  • Fun foam for dimension
  • Black rhinestones

Say cheese !

Hi there!

If you read this, your hobby is most probably the same as mine...

To be able to share my hobby with you, I need to take pictures for the blog and Instagram. Looking back at some of my earliest blog posts, I realize that I have learned so much over the past 7 !!! years. Not only about our craft, but the photography part as well!

So, if for some or other reason I decide to stop making cards, photography would definitely be an option.

Here's today's card. Hobby inspired, of course :)








I used :

  • Camera cutting file from : Apex Cuttables
  • Bubble stencil (unknown brand)
  • Distress ink
  • My own printed birthday sentiment
  • Silhouette cameo
I knew I wanted to add a fun background and my first thought was to do polka dots. I then remembered I have this stencil with its 'mouse cheese' look. Picking the colors was of course easy after I found the perfect stencil! The camera/sentiment was cut 3 times and layered for dimension.
