It's a girl!

I'll play for the first time for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge # 238. My baby card is made with the beautiful stamps I won from Flourishes. The background is made with the Antique Lace and the cute little shoes with the Hello Baby! stamp set. I just added a ribbon and two pink pearls:

Thank You.

I made this card to thank everybody at Flourishes! I was so happy to receive today the stamps I had won earlier! Here's the first card I made with these beautiful stamps! The Lily of the Valley is from the Botanical Bookplate Vol. 2 and the background from the Antique Lace stamp set. I stamped it on vellum and embossed it with white powder. I will enter this card at the Timeless Tuesday # 166. I chose pink, ribbon and die cut:

Pink Pinwheel.

For this week Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, I decided to make a pink pinwheel! I stamped it with two different background stamps (Gingham & Co and French Country). I embossed the white background with the Spellbinders Elegance embossing folder. I also stamped one of the Nordic Winter stamp on vellum and added white embossing powder before putting it in the middle. I put some twine from The Twinery and a little tag stamped with one of the French Country stamp set.

Timeless Tuesday #165.

Amanda is hosting her very first Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes. She asked us to use our favorite  Flourishes stamp set. Not that easy to choose just one... they are all so beautiful! I chose the Hearts & Flowers set and as I like tags, I stamped "Seize the Daisy" and a little pink daisy on a Flourishes tag. These come from Tiny Flowers and Tags stamp set. Just put a few pearls on the pink daisies and here it is:

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #93 (WMSC93).

There's a new Sketch Challenge at Waltzingmouse. I made a birthday card for a little girl. All the stamps used for the patchwork background are from Waltzingmouse, just love these stamps! The vellum lace is from the French Country stamp set, I just cut it a little bit, it looks more as a lace like this. The cameo frame is made with a Marianne Design die and I put some structure paste on it. I like this "Bonne Fête" stamp, it means happy birthday in french and I'm so happy Claire made some stamps with french texts! So great for me as I have a lot french speaking friends!

Blog Party

Today is the Blog Party at Waltzingmouse. The April theme is "New Beginnings" and I thought about doing a baby card. I made a blanket with different Waltzingmouse background stamps. The lace is made on vellum and embossed with white powder. I just cut a little bit the stamp from the French Country set. It now looks more as a lace. The little boy is from the Cameo Creations stamp set. I also added a heart, a little angel, a ribbon, a tag and a few blue gems:

The Book Worm Challenge.

There's another challenge at Flourishes today. We are asked to create a bookmark. I think that the stamp from the Sweet Days of Summer stamp set of Flourishes is great for  this challenge! I used my sewing machine for the background which is made with a stamp from the Waltzingmouse Gingham & Co stamp set. Just added some twine and here you can see it:

Lovely in Lace challenge.

There's a  Noon Time Challenge at Flourishes. All we need to do is to use some type of lace on the card. I made a vellum doily with the Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry die. The beautiful stamp is one of the Flourishes Waterlily stamp set. I also used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die for the background. A cute pink lace, ribbon and a few pearls and here it is:

I just read today at Flourishes that I had won the whole April release!! I'm soo happy, thank you so much!!

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #92 (WMSC92).

Here we go for a new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! The middle stamp is from the Afternoon Tea stamp set. I cut the frame with a die from Spellbinders, Labels Twenty. I stamped it with one of the Gingham & Co stamp and then I put them on a the beautiful French Pastry doily of Cheery Lynn Designs. The polka dots background is made with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I cut the tags with the Spellbinders Nested Pennants die and I stamped the tags on vellum. I used different stamps to do it: Nestie Eggs and Gingham & Co. I finished the card with some buttons, twine and two pink gems:

I wish all of you a very happy and sunny Easter! Here's the little present I bought for our friends to wish them a happy Easter! The glass jar is full of candles. I made the tag with a stamp from the Waltzingmouse Nestie Eggs stamp set. I embossed it with white powder and also added some green gems.

Blue heart, FTTC 163.

For the Timeless Tuesday #163 of Flourishes, Beate asked us to make a birthday card as she has her birthday this month! I chose the beautiful heart of the Heart & Flowers stamp set. I cut some of the flowers and put them on foam pads. The text on the ribbon banner (Spellbinders) is from the Half Pint Heros stamp set of Waltzingmouse. I used my sewing machine for the border and here it is:

Heart and roses

Today I will show you a card I made for two different challenges. For this month's Bring Back Beautiful challenge of Flourishes (BBB21), we were asked to make a card showing the beauty of Friendship. And then, the theme at The Shabby Tea Room for the week #108 is "Homegrown Flowers".

I first stamped the beautiful heart from the Hearts & Flowers stamp set of Flourishes. Then I made those white roses with the Sizzix Flowers, 3-D die. I added a little butterfly and a ribbon with a tag. The text is from the Medallion Motif stamp set of Flourishes.

Lenet is The Shabby Tea Room guest and she chose the theme of Homegrown Flowers along with this photo for inspiration:

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #91 (WMSC91).

This week, we have a one layer card challenge... seems easy, but it's not at all!! I had to do my card many times before being happy with the result... I tried to mix other colors in the frame, but no, it didn't look nice. So I ended with a very pinky card, but it could be perfect for a baby girl! I first stamped the beautiful doily from the Dainty Doilies stamp set. I then scored the frames and then stamped the background first with the Pic-Nic Patterns and then with the Gingham & Co stamp set. You can just imagine how stressful it was to stamp the last part of the gingham frame... I made it three times and then thought that this one would be the last!! I also used quite a lot of paper to mask the different parts I didn't want to be stamped... Well, the card doesn't look too bad... Just put some small white pearls on the doily, and here it is:

The card in the sunshine and look, we still have snow!

Here's the sketch of this week:
