Thank you card with La Compagnie des Elfes stamps and DCWV

Hello ! 

I have a new card for you today, made with flower stamps by La Compagnie des Elfes and papers from the Coral Couture stack by DCWV.


The flowers were stamped (Fleurs du Japon) and colored with Copic markers.
The frame was cut with Elegant Edges cartridge and my Cricut machine.
The central circle is a Sizzix embossing folder on cream cardstock, cut out and colored with markers.
The sentiment Merci (means Thank you in French) is made with Thickers alpha stickers in glitter aqua.

Love the fresh and bright look of this card ! I hope you like it too !
Have a great day and see you soon...

ATC with stamps from La Compagnie des Elfes

Hello !

It's been a while since I made ATCs ! Luckily, La Compagnie des Elfes (French stamps company) has a challenge for April : made ATCs with at least one of their stamps. You can find this challenge on the blog here.

This is my take as a DT member :


I used not one but three of their stamps on these ATCs : flowers (Fleurs du Japon), scriptures (Lettre a mes parents) and ATC (etiquette ATC).
The ATC stamp was previously used, you can find the result on this post.

I used also Avocado Colorations spray, Shamrock Sorbet dimensional paint and Wild Orchid Colorations spray (Art Anthology), a stencil by TCW and a small fern punch.

Thank you for taking some time to read this post. I'm on my way to complete recovery (back surgery), so you will see more and more projects... Come back soon and, meanwhile, have a great day !

April Make it Prima challege - A mini album

Hello beautiful people !

I hope you have a great week end (maybe you're on a day off tomorrow too), and ready for my new project for the Prima challenge... I made a mini album with the Tales of You & Me 12x12 kit and a En Francais ribbon :


I cut the album with the Minibook cartridge and my Cricut machine in size 3 1/4". I distressed the edges and the inside of the album with Black Soot distress ink by Ranger.


I used few big punches (EK Success, McGill) to cut some frames, or envelopes to decorate the album. The other embellishments are stickers from the Prima kit or flowers fussy cut from the papers.


Those papers are full of image to cut, I had a lot of fussy fun...


This is blank and ready to be filled with small pictures or journaling :


And the last picture is for the back of the album.


I will now go eat some chocolates before my children make them disappear...
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you liked my mini. 

See you soon for another project...

Distress Oxide ink on black cardstock - Tag tutorial

Hi there !

I know it's been a while, but my back required more rest than I expected (had surgery last month)...

I did play again with my distress oxide ink by Ranger, but this time I applied them on black cardstock and cream cardstock, so you will see the difference :


I use Distress oxide inks in Broken China, Cracked pistachio, Fossilizied amber and Wilvet violet.
Dies are from Tim Holtz / Sizzix : Thinlits Celebration words,  Wildflowers dies, and Mixed media thinlits. I also used a white gel pen to outline the tag.

You can watch the complete tutorial on my YouTube channel (I will be super happy if you follow me...) or here :



Thank you for stopping by today, see you on Monday for another mixed media tutorial for the Art Anthology blog !

Have a great week end...
