Our September sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays and our Guest Designer is my dear teamie from Uniko, Julie Beech, our July winner. Thank you for visiting her blog and leave her a nice comment.

1/ Merci (using sponsor stamp)

Sur une double carte grise, j’ai tamponné en gris la jolie fleur de notre sponsor puis je l’ai coloré avec des crayons de couleur.

On a double grey card, I stamped with grey ink the pretty flower from our sponsor then I coloured it with colour pencils.

J’ai fait un masque avec un post-it et j’ai tamponné les feuilles, puis je les ai colorées.

I made a mask with a post-it note and I stamped the leaves, then I coloured them.

Pour finir, j’ai tamponné le sentiment, toujours en gris et j’ai bordé le dessous avec du crayon blanc pour donner un peu de dimension.

To finish, I stamped the sentiment in grey, and I underlined it with a white pencil to give a little bit of dimension.

Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays “mon ami”, Simply Graphic ” planche remerciement” (sentiment) – Pencils: Faber-Castell polychromos “#101, 132, 130, 124, 125, 205, 171, 166, 163”  – Inks : Altenew “Silver stone”.

2/ Happy birthday

Pour cette carte, je me suis inspirée de la superbe carte de Tracey McNeely du défi en cours chez Muse.

For this card, I get inspired with Tracey McNeely’s beautiful card from the current challenge at Muse.

J’ai utilisé un set de tampon à plusieurs couches. J’aime beaucoup le rendu de la bordure en noir avec l’un des tampons intérieurs en couleur.

I used a layering stamp set. I love the look of the outlines in black with one of the layer in colour.

J’ai aussi gardé l’idée de tamponner dans un coin et d’utiliser un grand sentiment.

I also kept the idea of the corner stamping and of using a bold sentiment.

Stamps:  Catherine Pooler “Wonderful wildflower”, Uniko “Birthday sentiments” – Inks : Catherine Pooler “Aquatini, All that jazz, It’s a girl, Party dress, Flirty fuchsia”.

3/ Happy anniversary

Dans 15 jours mes parents fêteront leur soixante et unième anniversaire de mariage. Je voulais quelque chose de simple et doux, alors j’ai utilisé un stencil pour embosser le dessus de ma carte. Je l’ai ensuite laissé en place et j’ai juste mis de l’encre Distress en atténuant de plus en plus la couleur.

In 15 days my parents will celebrate their sixty-first wedding anniversary. I wanted something simple and soft, so I used a stencil to emboss the top of my card. I then left it in place and I just put Distress ink on it, softening the color more and more.

Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment en noir et c’est tout !

To finish I stamped the sentiment in black, and that’s it !

  1. Beautiful trio of cards, all so different but totally unique. I really like the first with pencil colouring on Kraft, it looks amazing. Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking time to leave a comment, it was greatly appreciated x

  2. Gorgeous cards Izzy, the one you shared at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE is beautifully done, love the soft way you sponged this lovely yellow on your embossed panel.
    Thank you for sharing and hope you play again soon.

  3. Three amazing cards, Izzy! I’m especially in love with the third one… That dry embossed and inked flower is so gorgeous and perfect for a one layer design -so much dimension and detail! I also love the style of the stamps in your second card -I think I’ve never seen this set before! Great job with pencil coloring too in your first card. So much inspiration here! xxx

  4. Gorgeous, Isabelle … all three! Fabulous colouring on that single blossom, so striking against the grey … a wonderfully loose and artsy scattering of blooms … and just the loveliest golden, textured bloom for your parents’ 61st wedding anniversary, they’ll love it, I do! Congratulations to them on such a milestone! Bises et hugs, Anita 🙂

  5. Such a pretty grouping of blooms! The little splashes of colour are so effective against the white background. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.

  6. As always Izzy, beautiful cards. I saw Tracey’s card on Instagram and agree it is beautiful, and I love your version of it too! All that delicious white space and the arty feel of partial colouring, its a dream choice! I wish your mum and dad a happy anniversary, I am sure they will love that super pretty stencilled card with that gorgeous ombre yellow 😍😍😍! And thank you for the reminder to emboss with a stencil as I have not done that in a while. Sorry Ive been so absent, life has been hectic and I am so behind with blogs 🙁 Lisa xx

  7. Three amazing one layer cards, Izzy! I wanted to use that Mon Ami stamp for my card, but you beat me to it! Your gorgeous pencil colouring and shading makes it pop beautifully on the grey card base. The second card I recognized immediately and is a perfect take on Tracey’s Muse card. Your final are is fantastic. The ink blending is so soft and pretty… your parents (wow! 61st anniversary) are going to LOVE it. Congrats to your parents! Very inspiring as always. Have a wonderful week! xx

  8. Ah, Isabelle, such lovely cards! I love the layering and lovely colours of your second card. Such a pretty assortment of flower shapes you’ve used, too. Keeping them simple with touches of colour really adds to the CAS design. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    And congratulations to your parents for their 61st Anniversary. Such a long commitment deserves such a beautifully crafted card.

  9. Gorgeous colouring on the first card on the grey card….Beautifully CAS.
    Wonderful layering of the stamps and gorgeous colours on the second.
    Wow…on the third, so very beautiful and love the stencil work and congratulations to your parents 61 st anniversary …you must be so very proud ….x.

  10. These are all so pretty, Izzy! I love the grey cardbase on your first CAS design and the pencil shading looks great. The artsy stamp layering on your second card is so clever and, of course, I do love that big chrysanthemum stencil from Uniko 🙂 Congratulations to your parents too on such a wonderful wedding anniversary!
