CARD - Paperartsy / Tracy Scott designs

I recently bought 3 PaperArtsy stamp plates: the beautiful designs by Tracy Scott. Haven't had the chance to try they all yet, but made this first card I sent to my friend Gio (I used her stencil on it too).
Used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints and their mini scrip stamp. Very simple card but rather striking me think.

J'ai récemment acheté 3 planches de tampons Paperartsy: les nouveaux designs de Tracy Scott. Pas trop eu le temps de les utiliser, mais j'ai quand même fait cette carte pour mon amie Gio (j'ai utilisé son pochoir aussi dessus). Le fond est fait avec les peintures Fresco Finish de PaperArtsy. Carte très simple mais efficace 😂

See you soon
A bientôt 
Isa 😊

CARDS - Dahlia et Versamagic inks


Have been playing with my latest stamps designed for Toutencolle: the Dahlias. Wanted to play with contrasts using Versamagic inks.

Here are the stamps I used on the cards and envelopes


Here's how I made the blue one... the two others are made following the same technique, only with different colours.

I started with stamping the biggest dahlia (this is a big one.. about 13 cm across) using the Turquoise Gem + Midnight Black Versamagic inks
💡TIP: if the stamping is not perfect, use the Versamagic as paints by pressing the pad on a glossy surface and use a slightly wet brush to paint💡

I then used masking tape to "hide" the big dahlia and stated stamping the medium on using Aspen Mist ink. This picture shows the result after removing the mask
Mask the medium Dahlias and stamp the small one using Aquatic Splash ink.

Finally stamp the quote "Rêver sa vie en couleur" (dream your life in colour) using the black and Turquoise Gem.

Mat the card with black and mount onto a blue card.

Add a touch of Crystal Stickles on the main flower to add a touch of glimmer 

I used the same technique on this one but using the following colours: Thatched Straw, Mango Madness and Key Lime
and the quote "le bonheur est la seule chose qui double quand on le partage" (happiness is the only thing that doubles when shared). Also stamped the bee on this one.

Added a touch of Diamond Stickles on this one

Close up on the ATC

Finally, on the purple one, I used the following colours : Aspen Mist, Spring Pansy and Purple Hydrangea

Stickles glitter used is: Star Dust

Here's the matching ATC

Hope you enjoyed this.
Remember, if you want to receive one of these card + ATC, leave a comment telling me which one you prefer (here and/or on Facebook or/and Instagram)
