Love you - My last DCWV Valentine's card

Hello !

I know that Valentine's day is tomorrow but I've already received my gift !
This is the last Valentine's card I will show you. It has been published in Creative Cards vol.1 this year (and that make me very proud of myself...).


The papers are from the Coral and Navy stack. I cut out the butterflies from the same stack. I found the lace at Hobby Lobby, and glue it with Fabri-Tac (Beacon Adhesives).

I wish you a great Valentine's day in advance, and I hope to see you as soon as Monday...

It's all about love - a DCWV card

Well, the title says all... It's a Valentine's card with non-traditional colors, like an every card, because love shouldn't be declare only one day per year...


I used papers from the Happy Day stack by DCWV, with a lot of fussy cutting, and a gold twine founded ages ago at Target.

See you tomorrow for a last Valentine's card.

Love you all !

Valentine's gift : an altered wine bag with Canvas Corp Brands

What sound more romantic than sharing a bottle of wine in front of a wood fire ? 
So I decorate a wine bag to hold a two-glasses bottle for Valentine's day !


I found a kraft and chipboard bag in shape of a bottle and covered it with Red and White Mini Hearts paper (Canvas Corp Brands). The edges are distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink (Ranger). I added some journaling tags from Sending Love Words on ivory (CCB).
The bow is made with burlap fringe in ivory, sprayed with Barn Red glimmer mist (Tattered Angels). I adhere it with Fabri-Tac on the bag, as well as the flowers.
The flowers are velvet flowers by 7Gypsies with Barn Red and Tattered Leather glimmer mists. I made knots with jute cord as flower's center.

I hope it gaves you some inspiration for your own Valentine's gift.
see you tomorrow for another card...

You & Me : a DCWV Valentine's card

I didn't notice I have so many Valentine's card in my stash I didn't show you ! 
Here again one I made with the Coral and Navy stack by DCWV, but with a very different look than the one I show you two days ago...


I just add two corners made with a Sizzix die and a ribbon (Celebrate it) I got for years (you never know when you're gonna use what you bought...), that I did adhere with Fabri-Tac.

See you tomorrow for another project...

Vintage look Valentine's card

A completely different card today, with a more masculine look, using the Boutique Vintage stack by DCWV.
This one was published (happy dance) in the Creative Cards vol. 1.


Beside the vintage stack, I only used a twine by Maya Road and 3D foam dots.

I will I show something Valentine's related tomorrow ? You'll have to come and see for yourself to know...

DCWV Valentine's card : Love is simple

 Hello there !

Did you know that in France we have a lot of school vacations. In fact, it's 2 weeks every 8 weeks of school, beside 2 months of Summer vacations. I know, that's crazy.
Anyway, I'm in the moutains right now (maybe you already knew it if you're following me on Instagram or Twitter...), and even if I took my scrap tote with me, I've prepared some cards to show you during my stay.

The first one was created with the Coral and Navy stack by DCWV :


Nothing more than the papers : the tag, flowers, leaves and word were fussy cut...

You still have a whole week to prepare yourself for Valentine's day ! Will you make a card ?
See you tomorrow for another one...

Tim Holtz tag : February 2016

Yeah ! Another tag to lift !

If you haven't check Tim's blog yet, he will mix techniques from previous years to make a new tag each month ! So February is all about stenciling, Take a look a Tim's tag :

2016TAG

And here is my lift :


So, I die cut a tag with a Sizzix die in cream cardstock, and apply Spun Sugar distress ink all over it. I sprayed water over it and let it dry. Then as I choose to use Tim Holtz masks instead of a stencil and apply Walnut Stain over it. I used the same ink to distress the edges of the tag.
I followed Tim's instructions and apply medium gel over another stencil to create the words and the date with embossing tinsel in copper (by Ranger). My bonus : I create an eyelet around the tag's hole using an embossing pen and with powder.

As I didn't have an heart stencil, I created one with paper and heart punch. The red ink is Aged Mahogany distress ink.

You maybe recognized the French picture of Doisneau, highlighted with markers, and I found deep burried in my stash some Basic Grey stickers (RIP).
The metal heart is covered with embossing powder too. I added tissue tape (Tim Holtz) and lace (Recollections) to finish this tag.

I did enjoy making this tag, and the one from February too. I will definitely continue with this 12 tags of 2016 !
