Happiness is a moment with you!

Update: I'm a "Runner up" at the "Make The Day Special" blog! I'm so happy! Thanks! :) 

Hi there! 
It's Friday finally today!! yay!! And a have a shaker card to show you! :)

I can't stop stamping these cute kittens and colouring them with my new copics!! In fact I made something like 30 cats these days.. but you know's ok having some cute critters ready to use! ahah! :)
I love creating shaker card without sequins...i don't know why.. but I like shaking cute "details" that are coordinate to my critters on the card, or just some little hearts, stars..!
I created my own pattern paper drawing some stripes with my copic markers and I cut out my banner with a selctive die cut tecnique. I used the stitched banner die cute from "tags a lot" die set from Mama Elephant, but I realized that my sentiment was so much taller, so I first die cut only one side of my banner and then the other leaving some space between. Then i cut with my scissor the banner detail! 
I did this because i wanted the stitched detail! :)
Then i stamped lots and lots of fish bones and some bows to complete my shaker card. I used some foam tape to glue my banner because i really wanted the sentiment to pop up! 
To finish the card i added a little silver bow to the top, and i love it because it gives more definition to my circolar window!

It whale be an amazing Birthday!! :)

Update: I'm the Quenn of Green!! :) YAY!!! I'm so happy and honored! thank you so so much!! :)
My card received the title of "Queen of the Green" al Lawnscaping Challenge blog! :)

Hi there!
Today I'm so proud to show you my second shaker card!! :)

I think that whales inspire me lots of shaker card! ahah! I don't know why but also in my first one i used these cute critters!! ( You can find it here! )
My little cousin is turning 3 so I wanted to make something special! His mom always loves my cards and tags so it makes me full of joy that she'll probably keep this card to show him when he'll be "older"! :)

Lawnscaping Challenge theme this time is "dimention", so I created a shaker card and I added two "sea layers" to give it an extra dimension!! ihih!!
Then I found out a new "Mix it up Challenge" with Lawn Fawn  at " the CLASSroom" ( blog by Ellen Huston)!!! You know how much I love mixing and playing with all my supplies so I combined Lawn Fawn stamp and dies with this cute mini-window by Julie Ebersole ( Essential by Ellen Huston)  to make my card more original and fun! :)
Here's a detail..

 And when you open it... Happy Birthday!! Surprise!! ahah! :)

I'm also so in love with my whales because I colored them with Copics!!! I'm so happy I found at my local store some Copic Ciao Markers!!! :)

I hope you like it and thank you so much for joining me today!!

Happy Easter - featuring Lawn Fawn!

Hi there and welcome back!
Easter is coming this week-end so I created a little Happy Easter set to give to my mom! :)

We like to create a cute "mise en place" every time we can and Easter is perfect! So I bought some chocolate bunnies and I created some placecards for our table! 

I like creating placecards, I think it's a little special gift for everyone invited! I always notice these detail when I'm inivited too and I always appreciated it! :)
This year I finally got this super pretty stamp set by Lawn Fawn and I can finally stamp all my cute bunnies!!!
Here's a detail... I stamped my sentiment on the back and my mom will write our name on the grass! :)

I don't have the grassy border die so I created this little fringe to create a lawn to my bunny! I stamped directly my bunny on my stitched circle, I colored him with watercolor pencils and as always Nichol Magouirk does I added some dots to make him more realistic and interesting!! 
Then I stamped another bunny on same masking tape, I cut it carefully to protect my image and I I put some distress ink to create my sky.
I wanted a soft and delicate background so I choose pastel colors for my jellies!
Then I created my tag with the other bunny included in the set..

I want this to be delicate and soft too so I created a simple scene with my fringe but I added some dimension to make it original! 
I cut my "speech bubble" and I stamped my "happy" on the second tag. I always add another white tag behind the one I decorated to let people some space to write. This time I sponged some tumbled glass distress ink to create a little sky inside the bubble and I'm really happy because it turned out super original!
As Kelly Marie does in some Lawn fawn videos I glued only the bottom of my bunny and then I put some foam tape behind his ears so he really seems to pop-up from the grass!

I hope you like it and thank you sooo much for stopping by today! 
Happy Easter! :)
