More hearts!

Hi there!

I'm making the most of the opportunity February provides to make and share love themed cards 😍

Here's another one!








This card came together in a jiffy ! I smooshed the watercolor paper a while ago for a background for another project which didn't happen because I wasn't too crazy about the look. And then yesterday I decided to cut out some hearts from it... and voila! I loved it! Lesson learned... keep those 'unsuccessful' pieces and die cut it! Oh yes and ♥'s make anything look better!


I used:
  • Rescued watercolor background (smooshed with Zigs and spritzed with water)
  • Sentiment from a Hampton arts stamp set
  • Sizzix heart dies
  • Silhouette cut bow
  • Fun foam for dimension
  • Black rhinestones

Say cheese !

Hi there!

If you read this, your hobby is most probably the same as mine...

To be able to share my hobby with you, I need to take pictures for the blog and Instagram. Looking back at some of my earliest blog posts, I realize that I have learned so much over the past 7 !!! years. Not only about our craft, but the photography part as well!

So, if for some or other reason I decide to stop making cards, photography would definitely be an option.

Here's today's card. Hobby inspired, of course :)








I used :

  • Camera cutting file from : Apex Cuttables
  • Bubble stencil (unknown brand)
  • Distress ink
  • My own printed birthday sentiment
  • Silhouette cameo
I knew I wanted to add a fun background and my first thought was to do polka dots. I then remembered I have this stencil with its 'mouse cheese' look. Picking the colors was of course easy after I found the perfect stencil! The camera/sentiment was cut 3 times and layered for dimension.

Hearts, stripes, flowers & leaves!

Hi there !

Due to a serious lack of heart stamps / stamp sets in my stash, I took out my favorite heart die and dressed it up with stenciled stripes and stamped flowers and leaves to create (hopefully) two distinctively different designs for this month's Twofer Card Challenge.

I find this challenge harder than I should 😆 ... overthinking it lol !

Here's number 1:
