Simple cards, little snowmen

Hello all! I hope you are all well? Today, I would like to show you little cards I made, using cute little snowmen. I actually wanted to make several simple Christmas cards and remembered my lovely teamie Lols using those for Quick and Easy cards. I made a dozen, I will show you at the end of the post what they are like... Then I saw the sketch challenge at Anyone For Anya and decided to make 2 other snowmen cards, almost the same as my dozen cards, but using the sketch given.

And close-ups

Stamps: Keep Cozy set - The Greeting Farm
Punches and dies: MS Arctic Snowflake punch, Artemio punch, CB Snowflake Die, Nestabilities (Labels One)
Viva Ice White Pearl Pen, Star Dust Stickles

The papers are freebies from Jak Heath, which you can find HERE and that I first saw on Tracy's blog, thank you Tracy!

Challenges I would like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - #20 Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - #93 Winter
Stamptacular Sunday - #91 Snow Much Fun

And here are my even simpler snowmen cards...

That's it! Have a great day and thank you very much for your visit!

Christmas Candy Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and had a wonderful Christmas! Maybe you think Christmas is over, well it is not! My friend Samantha has Christmas Candy and to be in the chance to win, you need to show her something you have made for Christmas, but NOT a card! So here is my entry... My sons and I made some biscuits on Thursday, very simple biscuits but a tradition for our Christmas holiday... Some biscuits, actually not some but a lot of biscuits... always very nice when you start, not so nice after 2 hours in the kitchen LOL!

Bonjour! J'espère que vous allez bien et avez passé un bon Noël. Vous pensez que c'est fini, et non, pas encore... Mon amie Samantha a un challenge un peu différent (avec candy à la clé!) et vous demande de montrer quelquechose que vous avez fait pour Noël, mais pas une carte! Pour moi, c'est les petits sablés basiques, faits avec mes garçons!



Have a great evening, thanks for stopping by and see you soon! Bonne soirée et à très bientôt! Bisous,
Delphine xx

Baubles, baubles...

Hello all! I hope you are well? As promised, a card for today, for the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - #47 Maria Therese' s great sketch (Theme: Ribbons and bows)
Mad For Markers - Christmas Card using non traditional Colours (with Copic Markers)
Paper Sundaes - #44 Pick Your Sundae Toppings (Punches, ribbon, embossing and blue - I used punches and ribbon)
ABC Challenge - H is for Holidays
Cute Card Thursday - #138 Anything goes
Bonjour à toutes! J'espère que vous allez bien! Comme promis, une petite carte pour les challenges ci-dessus!

And a close up on this manga image I love, the recipe and a few explanations!
Gros plan sur cette image que j'adore, recette et explications à suivre!

Stamps: Baubles by Sugar Nellie (Sentiment by The Greeting Farm and Magnolia Baubles in the foreground)
Copics: Girl: E000, 00, 11, RV000, 00, 02, V04, 06, 12 Baubles: B000, 00, 02, 32, 34, 37, RV02, 04, V12, 15, 17, Y13, 15, 17 and Copic Spica Glitter Pens (Lilac, Gold, Clear)
DPs: BoBunny (2 different papers, one for the big snowflake)
Punches: MS Doily lace, ? Small and Medium Retro Flower
Other: Ink Blending Tool with Spun Sugar Distress Ink for the background, ribbon and pearl from stash, and gold DMC thread

The big baubles in the foreground are a stamp by Magnolia, I cut them out, added DMC thread so I can hang them:-) and put them on foam pads.
Les boules sont en fait un tampon Magnolia, je les ai découpées, j'ai ajouté du fil DMC pour faire les attaches et les ai collées avec de la mousse 3D.

As you can tell, I made the flower... I cut 4 pieces of ribbon the same size, stitched the ends of each piece together to have 4 "bracelets", then piled my 4 pieces and stitched them together with just a few stitches in the middle of the flower. I used the image of the big snowflake next to it for inspiration... Then I added the punched flowers and pearl.

La fleur est totalement artisanale, comme vous pouvez le voir... J'ai utilisé 4 bouts de ruban de même longueur, j'ai cousu les extrémités de chacun afin d'avoir 4 sortes de bracelets, puis je les ai empilés et fixés ensemble en faisant quelques points au milieu de la fleur. C'est le gros flocon à côté qui m'a inspirée... Et puis j'ai ajouté mes fleurs perforées et ma perle.

And a last view...

That's it! Sorry, that was a long post:-)! Thank you very much for your visit and all the lovely comments you take the time to leave me:-)
C'est tout! Désolée, j'ai fait long aujourd'hui! Un grand merci pour votre visite et les si gentils commentaires que vous prenez le temps de me laisser! Bises,
Delphine xx

An award and some news...

Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend? Can't believe it is over already... A few days ago, I received a fab award from the lovely Tracy - thank you so much for thinking of me, Tracy! And with it, comes a $5 gift certificate from The Digi's with Attitude Store!
Bonsoir, une récompense à vous faire partager, qui m'a été donnée par Tracy, un grand merci d'avoir pensé à moi! En prime, un bon d'achat de $5 à dépenser au The Digi's with Attitude Store!

There are a few rules, first I need to pass it to 5 people, the most difficult part, I don't like choosing... I would like to give this one to Jenny, Scrapmumur, KatKelly and Lizzy!
Je le transmets donc à 5 personnes (je suis les règles!), Jenny, Scrapmumur, KatKelly et Lizzy!

And I need to tell you 3 things about myself:
1. I am very slow when it comes to making cards, if I were faster, I would probably add handstitching, I love it! (I still don't have a sewing machine...)
2. I often buy the same books twice, one copy in French for my hubby, one in English for me... and I don't have enough shelves or walls!!!
3. I am very excited because I have a new blinkie... OK, I am going to be GDT for Cupcake Craft Challenges in December!!!:-)...

Je dois vous dire 3 choses sur moi:
1. Je suis très très lente pour faire mes cartes, si j'étais plus rapide, je coudrais davantage sur mes cartes (à la main, je n'ai pas de machine...)
2. J'achète souvent 2 fois le même livre, un en français pour ma moitié, l'autre en anglais pour moi... et je n'ai plus de place dans mes étagères!!
3. Je suis super contente, je vais être GDT pour Cupcake Craft Challenges en décembre:-)...

Last thing, follow the link here to finish and claim the coupon!
Dernière chose, suivre le lien ICI pour obtenir son bon d'achat!

Enjoy your evening everyone, I hope to catch up with you tonight and show you a card tomorrow!
Bonne soirée à tous et à très vite! Bises,

A special card and lots of stars

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well, despite the awful weather! Tonight I would like to share a card, special to me, because I made it with someone special in mind, my lovely cyber buddy who lives really far away, in Australia, but whom I feel really close to!
Bonsoir à toutes! J'espère que vous allez bien. Ce soir je vous montre une carte spéciale car je l'ai faite pour une personne adorable, qui vit bien loin, en Australie, mais dont je suis très proche! Voici comment la carte s'ouvre une fois le ruban défait...

This is how it opens...

And the inside of the card...
L'intérieur de la carte...

That was my first attempt at a star-shaped card, I read a tutorial in one of my Magnolia Ink Magazines and thought it would be perfect for this Gorjuss Girl, called Little Star. The longest part was to make all the triangles and all the stars (2 behind the image, 2 for the sentiment on the front and the card itself) and it also made me realise I really needed to buy a scoring tool and board!
C'est mon premier essai de carte en forme d'étoile, après avoir lu un tutoriel dans l'un de mes magazines Magnolia, et cela m'a semblé parfait pour cette Gorjuss Girl nommée "Petite étoile"...

A close up and the recipe...

Stamps: Little Star Gorjuss Girl Sugar Nellie - Swirls Whiff of Joy - Sentiment LOTV
Copics: B00, 01, 02, BG000, C1, 3, 5, 7, 8, E000, 00, R20
Distress Ink for the background and to ink all the edges of the card
DP: Magnolia
Dies: Nestabilities (Circles and Scalloped Circles) for the sentiment, Shapeabilities (Flourish Accent) to decorate the triangles on the outside, CB snowflake die which comes with little stars used to decorate the background
Embellishments: Viva Pearl Pen (ice white) for the swirls, Stardust Stickles and Viva Glitter Liner (Holographic), gems and pearls from stash, white ribbon coloured with Copic

I think that's it! Thank you very much for your visit:-)! Enjoy the rest of your evening and see you soon,
Merci de votre visite et à très bientôt! Bises,

The swirls around the image were heat embossed with ivory? embossing powder and I added Crushed Velvet Flock to Antoinette's clothes. No DPs, but white glitter card and a "special" paper for the lower part of the card which I thought looked a bit like snow, but I am sorry I don't know what it is called!!! Here it is...
