shaker snowglobe with fawn

 hello everyone

Today I'm sharing a shaker snowglobe card i made with Lawn fawn products !

I added a white bow on top, it's hard to tell on this white background but it looks so delicate.
I colored the snowglobe with Promarkers and added contrast with Faber castle pencils. constrast but also a little bit of wood texture as you can see on the sides.
i heat embossed the sentiment with glitter.
the little snowglobe can be used as a card or ornement, it's so cute and lively !

owl shaker snowglobe


today i'm sharing my second shaker snowglobe. this time i used a stamp by My favorite things

Once again i drew snowflakes over the surface of the snowglobe to add dimension to the card
This time my bow and ribbon is blue to match the owl's scarf and the background sky.
I added curls to the tails, i love doing that, i glue the curl onto the side of the snowglobe so that the shape stays curly.
I turned the snowglobe into a card so you can open it and write a word inside.

Tools: Lawn fawn ready set snow stamp and die sets.
My favorite things You make my heart melt stamp set
my stamps were colored with Promarkers.

As you like it : favourite Christmas embellishment and why: i love bows with long tails. they give a sophisticated look to things and that's perfect for this time of year, when we offer beautifully wrapped presents and decorate places with delicate ornaments.

My favourite embellishment for Christmas is definitely a bow with long tails because it's delicate and gives a fuller look; it reminds me of vintage presents, it's a detail that makes everything well finished, showing you love for the thing that's embellished.

pink halloween


I'm sharing a card i made with Lawn fawn products today ! 

I used distress inks for the sky, splattered it with water, pink and white ink and drew so stars.
i then used the stitched hillside dies to make the ground.
the frame is the Leafy backdrop portrait die.
the sentiments are written on Everyday sentiment banner die cuts
the stamps are thanks a latte and winter sparrows.
the white heat was stamped with Yeti ink.
I hope you'll like my little card !


wood work


this week I'm playing with As you like it and i'm showing a non card project.

a couple of years back, my father teached me how to cut wood with a scroll saw. wood working is my father's great passion and i could tell it meant a lot that i was interested in that.

At first i was terrified by the speed of the saw, the fingers move too near; and sometimes, the plank you're trying to cut starts shaking, the sound is quite loud too, there are so many reasons to send you into panic when you're not used to it. at first i manoeuvred my planks in the distance, with a stick and with gloves! but my creations were not very beautiful. i cut wood hearts that actually looked like potatoes. 

i gradually learnt to move my wood pieces with my fingers and with more precision, i covered my ears, so that the sound wouldn't distract me, and i did that when no one was home so i could fully concentrate!

i finally made a sculpture for my mom's birthday, to celebrate her talent in jam making. i wanted to make something very delicate and minute. with 2 varnishes i could make different tones of colour. i had no idea which varnish to buy, i just chose 2 small pots of "wood varnish" from a supermarket. i printed out a jam pot that i glued on some cardboard. the wood for the fruit is pine. for my mom i used plywood. i used my craft stash to glue her name on the log with sequins, write the sentiment with my Posca on the label "jam expert" and the twine to tie it around the fruit! once a crafter, always a crafter !

I painted her hair with brown acrylic paint, then drew the face with a pen

i also learnt to pierce holes in a thin wood label, and believe me that's nooot easy cause when you touch a label with a spinning tool, the label flies away in the air. i learnt that you must carve a little mark first and then pierce the hole. that way the label stays in place.

this sculpture was a real challenge for me but it meant so much cause it was for my mom and I also wanted my dad to see the result of his teaching

Autumn forest


Here's my latest Autum card. 

I used Sunny studio critter campout stamp set to make my scene.  For the forest i was inspired by Le cosebella di sara who made a beautiful hedgehog card a little while ago. I colored a base with my promarkers then colored on top with my pencils to work out the contrasts and texture.
i holographic embossed the sentiment.

I drew the foreground grass, the trees and the bushes.
I wanted to make a peaceful and cozy atmosphere because that's how i feel about Autumn. Not too cold, not too hot, rich colors and smells, making Nature so beautiful.
