Lime Citron: La magie de Noël est là!

Youppi, la magie de Noël est là!

C'est un autre coup de cœur d'inspiration pour les 12 jours de Noël chez Lime Citron! Et comme les précédentes publications, c'est deux pour un en utilisant la même technique :-)

Cette fois-ci, j'ai décidé d'utiliser des recharges encres Distress sur un papier aquarelle et en découpant un rectangle au centre, j'ai pu avoir deux morceaux pour deux cartes bien différentes. 

Sur la première carte, j'ai étampé l'image des quatre sapins directement sur le papier, faisant fi de la mise en couleurs pour sauver du temps. J'ai même poussé plus loin en y étampant également un souhait de l'ensemble Petites phrases de Noël, puis j'ai ajouté quelques paillettes et picots blancs qui font office d'ornements dans les sapins


Le reste de la carte, cartons kraft, noir et blanc, est très simple, pour que le fond aquarelle soit un véritable "pop" de couleurs. 


Produits Lime Citron utilisés:

Étampe 4 sapins
Étampe - Petites phrases de Noël (créé par Celma)

Et comme je l'ai mentionné plus haut, j'ai réutilisé le panneau aquarelle restant pour créer une deuxième carte de Noël, mettant en vedette la découpe de renne que j'ai fait sur des cartons noir, à paillettes rouges, puis kraft, que j'ai légèrement décalé pour plus de profondeur.  



J'ai repris un souhait de l'ensemble Petites phrases de Noël, et le tour est joué, une deuxième carte toute prête à offrir à vos proches!

Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia!

Hello everyone!

I'm thrilled to be part for the first time of the Advent Calendar Extravaganza!


Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And since today's sponsor is SugarPea Designs, there's no way I would miss an opportunity like that :-)

Here's the card, or shall I say, trio of cards, that I created with the lovely Merry Makers stamp set


This is a true favourite of mine, as they look so whimsical! Each card was created on the same concept, meaning that I started with a 110lbs white cardstock folded in two, to get a regular 4¼"x5½" cardbase. Then, I added an inked background made with different Distress inks.

On the first one, I used the SugarCut – Starburst Cover Plate to die-cut the inked panel, and then stamped a sentiment (also from the Merry Makers stamp set), onto which a popped the little elf with foam tabs. 


I completed the project with iridescent sequins and some glossy accents on the lightbulbs.


On the second one, I used the SugarCut – Arrow Cover Plate with the inked panel and to make sure my image would pop, I added it onto a SugarCuts – Zig Zag Stitched Circle made with white cardstock. 


Again, a few dabs of glossy accents on the red paint, and some sequins to complete the project.


And one the third card, I created my own panel by adding some heat embossed snowflakes from the Flurry Of Warm Wishes stamp set  on the inked panel. 


I rounded the corners with a punch and really like the finishing touch it gives. What do you think? I also popped the heat embossed sentiment on the cardbase with foam tabs, and added sequins once again.



And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!
