OnLine Card Class - Watercolors

I know it’s been a very long time! Not sure if there will be anybody reading this… but my friends have asked me to post my cards again, so I’ll try to be a little bit more consistent! My busy life gets in the way of my blogging!

OK Today’s card! I am taking another […]

OnLine card class “Stretch your dies” Day 3

i am little late in my homework but I am truly enjoying that class… There is always something to learn even for someone who’s been making cards forever like me…

Today’s lesson was to use your “classic shape dies” in a different way.

I am copying the design that Jennifer McGuire used… Using a heart […]

Online card classes – Day 2

Here is another “homework” from my Online card class, “Stretch your dies”.

This class was about using flower dies.  Jennifer McGuire doubled up her flowers to give them more dimension.  I doubled up my flowers also using glitter card stock.  I trimmed the die a little bit because it was a little big for my […]

Watercoloured garden

Today I would like to share this new watercolouring technique I have rediscovered.  I recently attended a craft show and Art Impressions stamps were “demoing” this technique.  Using stamps, inked with water based markers, you create your little scene and use a brush and water to smudge the lines of the stamped image.  Very easy […]

Happy Valentine's Day - Joyeuse St-Valentin

I hope that you all had a very nice Valentine’s Day! I certainly had! I received from my Valentine a Fit Bit bracelet, a David’s tea mug and Valentine’s box of different teas. Very spoiled!

Here are more Valentine’s cards (the English one was for Jim, my Valentine!)

 

I called it my Valentine […]

Clean and Simple 4 class Day 2

Here’s my […]

Halloween treat bag

I made a few special Halloween treat bags for my little neighbours. I used the pumpkin die cut from Memory Box to cut a piece of “jute” card stock. (This pumpkin is almost 4 inches in diameter). Then I die cut some elements from Sizzix/Tim Holtz Halloween thin strip die out of orange card stock. […]
