Jeudi avec… Nathalie / Thursday with… Nathalie

Il est souvent difficile de faire des cartes plus masculine, à plus forte raison pour un adolescent. En voici une toute simple. L’étampe de Benjamin est coloriée aux crayons, puis découpée.

Sur un papier cartonné blanc, le texte est étampé à la verticale, et le motif de chevrons donne à la fois une direction pour aller de l’avant, et sert presque d’appui au personnage. À gauche, j’ai créé une bordure masculine en embossant un motif donnant l’apparence d’une plaque de métal à un papier cartonné argent.

It is often difficult to make cards more masculine, especially for a teenager. Here is a very simple one. Benjamin's stamp is colored with pencils, then cut out.

On a white cardstock, the text is stamped vertically, and the chevron pattern gives direction to go forward, and almost serves as a support for the boy. On the left, I created a masculine border by embossing a deck plate pattern on silver cardstock.

Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here using a bloom crescent flower stamp on Dina Wakley Gloss sprays background. Gloss sprays give a shiny effect when dry from the acrylic gloss paint.
I stamped the flower blossom using my stamp platform in Versafine Clair ink and heat set it. 
I used my posca paint pens to colour the flowers, and I added the white to the edge. I pulled the white to the centre of the flower using my finger, then re outlined the edge of the petal again in white. 
I also added a little glitter posca paint to the centre of the petals.
I stamped around the edge using the script and the crisscross stamps for additional interest. When I finished colouring the image I put it back in my stamp platform and re stamped the flower.

In this image you can see the shine from the Posca glitter pen.

Ellie's creative Monday / Lundi créatif d'Ellie

 Hi Ellie here with you today, 
I made a gelliprint using the gorgeous Chicken Wire
 stamp on the gelli plate. 

The Distressed Background Text is heat embossed in white on tissue paper and decoupaged on top of the gelliprint. 

The Magnolia Branch is fussycut and adhered to the card, colored a little with yellow distress ink. 

I hope you found some inspiration from my make today!

Les beaux dimanches de Nathalie / Nathalie’s Sunny Sundays

Il y avait déjà un certain temps que je n’avais pas fait de cartes avec des fleurs de papier roulé comme celles-ci. J’ai trouvé que ce joli motif de brouette se prêtait bien à un montage de ce type.

La brouette a été étampée sur un papier vert, puis mise en couleur aux crayons. Et quelques fleurs ou feuillages découpés à l’emporte-pièce ont été ajoutés.

It's been a while since I've made cards with rolled paper flowers like these. I found that this pretty wheelbarrow pattern was great to make an arrangement like this.

The wheelbarrow was stamped on green paper, then colored with pencils. And some die-cut flowers or foliage have been added.

Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam

Welcome back to Super Saturday.  It’s time for me to get started on my Christmas cards so I decided on the Christmas Holly Bird for my first card of the season. 
I used VersaFine Vintage Sepia to stamp the image on white cardstock, then used colored pencils to color the image.  I restamped the image using VersaMark ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I lightly shaded the background area with Distress Tumbled Glass ink.  To create the circle frame, I die cut a piece of textured white cardstock with a stitched circle die.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock then cut it out with a stitched banner die and added a bit of shading with Tumbled Glass ink.  I assembled the card then added glossy accents on the berries along with a few jewels for added sparkle.  
On a personal note, life is taking me in different directions so I've decided to step down from the Magenta Design Team.  It has been so much fun working with these talented ladies for the last several years.  Thanks for all your lovely comments on my posts.
