Molly shares pop up

Today i'm showing a floating board pop up card. it's my first try and i struggled a little but i finally managed to make it work smoothly and i'm so happy about that.
i used Tiddly inks' Molly shares stamp, set her in a lovely garden with a cat from Lawn Fawn
i built the house and garden with Lawn Fawn's Spring box add on, stitched scalloped border, and Doohickey's fence. the sentiments are all from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.
 the papers are wall and grass textures. i embossed the sentiments with glitter.
 you can check the opening of the card here:

Molly was coloured with Promarkers and pencils. i love to sharpen the Promarkers colors with pencil contrasts. i feel it makes the colours pop (take the dress for instance) and i also feel more at ease with pencil strokes.
Promarkers: ivory, pastel yellow, sunflower, pastel green, mint green, lush green, ice grey 1, cool grey3, cool grey4. cinnamon, saddle brown, spice, honeycomb, dusky pink, pastel pink.

6 birthday invitations

I was recently asked to make 6 birthday invitations for a cupcake party.
i used the woodland critter huggers die set from Lawn Fawn to make cute animals holding cakes.
the pearls on the cake are pastry decorations. the smiles are from the LF how you bean stamp set.
now here's the back:
and to make it easier to write on the inside, i added some white paper and die cut the edges with the LF stitched cloud border

the back pocket of the critters is going to hold a map leading to the birthday cupcake party...

April showers bring May flowers

Happy Easter everyone !
Hope you have a happy day today.
 Love to Scrap! Is having a new challenge today "April showers bring May flowers" and it is sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays stamps! I have used the calm and loving stamp set to make my card.
I first inked up the sky with distess inks then stamped the tree with versa mark, and embossed it with ranger supet fine white powder. After that i added a Lawn fawn stitched hill together with flowers that i punched with Martha Stewart's border punch. I colored them with Promarkers: powder blue, amethyst, pink carnation, sunflower, pastel yellow, pastel green, lime green and blender.
I finally heat embossed my CAS-ual Fridays sentiment with versafine and holographic powder.
Have a beautiful day!

Easter rainbow

Happy Easter everyone!

For this special occasion i built tiny gift boxes with chocolates inside.
i was inspired by Melissa Stinson's great work.
 i used Lawn Fawn's tiny gift box die set together with the bunny add on.
 i made the simple version (no carrot, nor legs but i think they still look great and joyful).

kissing slider card dinos

hey everyone!
based on ShanShan Mato's tutorial, i made this kissing slider card:
when you pull on the bow, the dinos move toward each other and reveal golden hearts and a glitter sentiment.
the dinos are from the Lawn Fawn Roar stamp and die set. the palm trees, clouds and "with love sentiment" are from Lawn fawn too. and oh, the stitched hillside too !
 i used a mirror technique to stamp the opposite dino and colored them up with promarkers: pink carnation, rose pink, orchid, amethyst, arctic blue and cool aqua, pastel green and mint green for the little present.
the base sentiment is by me.
Here's the card in motion:

hope you like my card !
Lawn Fawnatics: fun with dies
-As you like it : single or multiple layers (this card has multiple layers to hide the mechanism and also to give room to let the mechanism roll back and forth smoothly)

Blank Page Muse card

Hey everyone!
it's time for another awesome challenge at Love to Scrap! and we are playing with
Blank Page Muse this time who is offering a $25 gift to their shop ! wow their stamps are so elegant ! you want to check them out!
i was lucky enough to receive some and i can never be thankful enough to Kim for her very generous and beautiful gift !

For my project i used the Butterfly mini patterned art stamp together with some gorgeous flowers from the Flower and bird sketches art stamp set and the vintage text with Bird and flowers background stamp. i just looove how they worked so well together and easily made a very classy card  ! 
here it is:
i used a brown versafine to stamp my images so that they would keep an elegant vintage look and added foam to my frame and flowers to make them pop up a little. 
i thought the butterfly mini patterned art stamp added such a beautiful and dynamic dimension to the card if i cut it out and placed it on the border, wings opened up.
so i hope you like my card
have a nice day!
As You like it: single or multiple layers (i love multiple layers, i used to make dense Magnolia cards)
