Basic Grey - Two Scoops page

This fortnight's Basic Grey challenge is 'Tutti Frutti' so, although there's nothing directly fruity, meant I had a good excuse to use my 'Two Scoops' kit and it's gorgeous ice cream colours! Used three different papers here along with the stickers, alpha sheet and matching stamps plus Distress ink, glossy accents and EK Success 'Scalloped Scallop' punch.
J’ai utilisé Basic Grey ‘Two Scoops’ (kit et les tampons) pour cette page et le challenge chez Basic Grey: Mon mari se promenade avec notre petite-fille. Egalement, j’ai utilisé encre Distress (Broken China), encre craie ‘Rose Petals’ de Colorbox, Glossy accents (Vernis 3D) et une perfo festonnée ‘Scalloped Scallop’ de EK.

Wild Asparagus cards

I joined in with a sketch challenge on the Trimcraft forum and made these two quick cards using the My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus papers, ribbons and decoupage. The square card also uses a Stampin'Up image with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink blended with a little water and highlighted with Glossy Accents.
The second is A5 size on Bazzill swiss dots card and also has glossy accents but the photo hasn't picked them up.
Deux cartes qui suivi la même modèle chez le forum  Trimcraft (anglais).Toutes les papiers, les rubans et la découpage sont de My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus' avec le Bazzill et le Glossy Accents de Ranger. Le tampon de la première carte est de Stampin'Up et j'ai utilisé l'encre distress 'Frayed Burlap' et un pinceau d'eau pour le coloriage.

Scrapbook Page with embossed background

This page was created with transparent ink and powder embossed on Kraft card before adding DCWV 'Spring' paper and ribbons, scraps of Bazzill and some Jillybean soup journalling sprouts. Also cut in to the page with EK Success Waves and dots border punch, gave it a good dose of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and cut the title with Cuttlebug 'Not the Boss' alphabet.
Une page avec fond embossé: Avec l'encre et la poudre transparentes ils donnent un effet de ton sur ton. J'ai ajouté un papier et les rubans de DCWV 'Spring', chutes de Bazzill, 'Journalling Sprouts' de Jillybean Soup, Encre Distress (Frayed Burlap), et j'ai utilisé une perforatrice 'Waves & Dots' d'EK Success et la Cuttlebug avec l'alphabet 'Tu n'es pas mon patron'.

A dictated page - Une dictée

Overdue big thanks to the Carhaix scrapbooking association for inviting me along to join in with creating a dictated page taken from February's 'Histoire de Pages' blog challenge. As it was a magazine challenge, I emailed it in and it actually got to the last stage but not the final publication of the magazine (slapped wrists for not using French for my title - ooops!). That's why it hasn't been blogged until now: I was thrilled that for a first entry I got that far out of 100s sent in!
Used Dovecraft's Wild Blossom papers, glittered ribbon, chipboard and flowery brads mounted on Bazzill 'Spring Breeze'; Cuttlebug with Spellbinders Curved rectangles and Not the Boss alphabet; Doodlebug sticker alphabet; Cosmic Shimmer spray; Basic Grey stamp; Making Memories felt flower and stash bits.
Merci à l'assoc scrapbooking de Carhaix qui a m'invitée où j'ai fait cette page dictée du blog Histoire de Pages.
J'ai utilisé: Papiers, ruban, fleurs en carton et attaches parisiennes de Dovecraft 'Wild Blossom' sur le fond Bazzill 'Spring Breeze'; la Cuttlebug avec 'Curved Rectangles' de Spellbinders et l'alphabet 'Tu n'es pas mon patron'; l'alphabet autocollant de Doodlebug; peinture en vaporiser de Cosmic Shimmer; un tampon de Basic Grey et une fleur en feutre de Making Memories.

Sketch & Stamp # 23 - Vintage style

I've gone with a very vintage-looking card for the Sketch & Stamp challenge. I was inspired by the beautiful MME 'Bella' papers and Hampton Art stamps that I cut up and then mounted together. I embossed the images with black powder before inking and colouring with Distress Inks; apart from the text which is Adirondack Espresso. Vis ton rêve : Live your dream !
Cette carte, style 'vintage', suive le challenge # 23 chez Sketch & Stamp. J'adore les papiers de MME 'Bella' and ces tampons de Hampton Art. J'ai embossé les images avec la poudre noire et j'ai fait le coloriage avec les encres Distress. Le texte fût tamponné avec l'Adirondack Espresso. Vis ton rêve !

Scrapbook Page - 'Gagnant'

After 4 hours standing in the cold on Saturday afternoon, I got to scrap the results in the warm with the association at Tourc'h today! The page was made from sketch 34 @scrapidées. My son won his 50m hurdles race hence the title: gagnant being French for winner.
I used: Papers from DCWV 'Spring' 12x12 stack and 'Mat Stack 3' 6x6 stack; acrylic paint; Thickers alphabet; notepad; printed stars; Bazzill and the Bind-It-All to give the filmstrip holes.
Après 4 heures dehors le samedi après-midi quand j'ai pris mes photos, j'ai crée cette page plein chaud à l'assoc Tourc'h2scrap (29) aujourd'hui. J'ai utilisé sketch34@scrapidées. Mon fils a gagné les 50m haies.

Sarah Kay card

I don't usually combine challenges but as soon as I saw today's Friday Sketchers layout #93 the others fell in to place: My card also fits the bill for the Stamp with Fun Spring theme, A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge to use something recycled (the raffia on the card is from some flowers I was given this week - thanks Karine!) and yesterday's PaperPlay challenge 'Seeing double' as there are the 2 panels on the card. Used: Sarah Kay image with water-colour pencils, Spellbinders 'Curved Rectangles' in the Cuttlebug, PaperMania printed papers, ColorBox 'amber clay' chalk ink edging the papers and card, flowers from Prima and Making Memories, and brads.
Cette carte suivi les challenge pour quatre blogs: Sketch de Friday Sketcher's #93, thème 'printemps' de Stamp with Fun, recyclage pour A Spoon Full of Sugar (le ruban de mes fleurs - merci Karine!), et le 'double' challenge chez PaperPlay (les deux tapis).

Cute Card Thursday - Pepper and Friends

I can't complain about mere inconvenience when other people suffered so much more but we were a week without the internet after the storms that hit France the last weekend of February and I have sooooo much to blog...
Starting with a 'green' card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge. All the papers, découpage and stamp, coloured with watercolour pencils, are from the Dovecraft 'Pepper and Friends' range. Punches: 'Botanical scallop' by Martha Stewart and 'Scalloped Scallop' by EK Success.
Nous avons une nouvelle boîte modem après nous avons perdu l'internet à cause de l'orage au fin de février: Seulement une frustration quand beaucoup de gens perdu beaucoup plus :(
Voici une carte pour le 'vert' challenge de 'Cute Card Thursday'. J'ai utilisé les papiers, le pré-découpage et un tampon de Dovecraft 'Pepper et ses amis' et j'ai fait le coloriage avec les crayons aquarelle. Perfos: 'Dentelle botanique' de Martha Stewart et 'Bordure festonnée' de EK Success.
