30 tags before Christmas Giveaway

Do you remember my last Christmas giveaway? I made 30 cards, one for each day before Christmas, and you had to vote for your favorite, with a chance to win a great prize at the end ?

So this year, I decided to make tags instead of cards. You will see gift tags or scrapbooking tags, but tags, each day before the 25th of December. And you can win 2 Christmas prizes !

To enter for the first drawing, you must be a follower of my blog (Google+, Googlefriends, Bloglovin or by email), and comment at least one time during the challenge. I will randomly choose a winner for the 1st prize.

To enter the second drawing, you must be a follower of my blog, and vote for your favorite tag. The winner will be choose randomly too.

This personal challenge of mine will start on Tuesday, 25th of November. You will have until the 25th of December to follow and comment in order to be eligible for the 1st prize.
Once all the tags will be posted, you will be able to vote for your favorite between the 12/25/14 and the 01/02/15. Winner of the 2nd prize will be announced on the 01/03/15.
You will have more details on the prizes on the 25th of this month, but here is a clue... it will be sponsored by a great brand, beginning with a D, four letters in total, ending in V. Can you guess ? (come on it's easy...)
See you very soon !

Masking technique with stamp

Hello everyone !

Here is my inspiration post for the Feeling Sketchy Blog : I will show you how I reduced the size of the stamp on of my card from last month challenge :


I did reduce the size because this stamp (MME, Miss Caroline collection) did not fit the tag, so I used the masking technique to do so. See the difference :


First, ink the center of the stamp :


Use two pieces of paper for the masking :


Stamp your image with the papers masking the side :


Now you have your image without side...


Ink the left side of the stamp :


Use a piece a paper to mask the stamped image and stamp the left side, with the already stamped image as point of reference :


Tada ! You have an image with a left side !


Ink the right side :




And stamp as the other side but on the right side this time :


Tada again ! You have your stamp at a smaller size !


I hope this post gave you a lot of idea to resize your stamps !

See you soon...

Feeling Sketchy layout challenge #107

What about some flowers to forget about all these falling leaves ?
Today is reveal of the new layout sketch at Feeling Sketchy, and here is my layout :


Materials :
Abrianna collection papers by K&Company, I Am roses flowers and leaves, Webster's Pages alpha stickers

This paper is very loaded, so I didn't feel like adding embellishments or texture on it. Just 2 flowers and few leaves seems enough to me.

Compare to the sketch :

November Scrap Lifting challenge : Koscova

Another wonderful challenge with the Scrap Lifting blog ! Come play with this lift, there is a prize to be won...
The layout to lift was created by Koscova (sorry blog in russian, but pretty pictures)


When I saw the layout, I immediately thought of one embellishment I bought a long time ago at Michaels. It is in fact a coaster, but I have always thinking of it as a scrap thing ! It's the pink felt flower.


Here is what I used :
SEI paper, Martha Stewart clay and mold, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, Gesso, Stampabilities stamp, Colorbox pink ink, Doddlebug Design doilie, TPC Studio button, plus some fabric, pink thread and a pearl thing (I don't really know what it is, but bought anyway).

Some close-ups...




That make another layout for my Istanbul album !
Come and take a look at the other creations of the DT and try to win a prize by uploading yours !

Color-Me-scrappy challenge #73

We have huge colorboard this month on the CMS blog with 10 colors on it ! But don't be afraid, most of them are shade of one. Take a look :


It seems scary at first sight, but if you group them, you are left with yellow/orange, shade of grey/black and brownish colors.
So I did picked the yellow and worked my background around its shades. So we have yellow for the background with brown ink on the edges, orange-like stamped cross,  and splits of dark yellow :


For the grey part, I used a Prima stencil with Shimmerz silver paint undelined with black pen, plus washi tapes. For orange/red, I colored washi tapes and papers with pens.



And of course, flowers to match my bouquet.

Here is the list of materials I used :

Recollections papers,
stamp and stencil by Prima Marketing
vintage photo distress ink by Tim holtz,
Mister Huey's sunshine mist,
Recollections and Tim Holtz washi tapes,
Copic markers,
Webster's Pages alpha stickers,
Dazzlerz Foiled again Shimmerz paint,
Faber-Castell black fine pen,
flowers and leaves by I Am Roses.

A word on the picture : it was me on my wedding day, with my more-than-soon-to-be husband and my very newborn daughter (7 days old). That is for the twist of the challenge : something you are thankful for...

Take a look at the DT layouts for more inspiration on the CMS blog and give a try to this fun challenge !
