Less is More #396 – CAS embossing

Bonjour !

J’espère que vous allez bien et que vous êtes prêt(e)s pour notre dernier défi du mois de mai chez Less is More. Nous finissons aussi ce mois avec notre sponsor CAS-ual Fridays. J’ai hâte de voir dans la galerie ce que vous allez nous proposer !

Hello !

I hope that you all are fine and ready for our last challenge of May at Less is More. We also finish the month with our sponsor CAS-ual Fridays. I look forward to seeing in the gallery what you will show us !

Voici mes cartes / Here are my cards

1/ Mon amie (using sponsor stamps and die)

Pour cette carte j’ai utilisé le superbe set “Mon ami” de notre sponsor ainsi que une des matrices correspondantes.

For this card I used the beautiful set “Mon ami” from our sponsor as well as one of the matching dies.

Sur une feuille rectangulaire blanche j’ai tamponné avec une encre bleue très claire les 2 fleurs du set (celle du haut et celle du milieu) et j’ai dessiné la troisième.

On a white card stock I stamped the 2 flowers of the set with a very soft blue ink (the one of the top and the one of the middle) and I drew the third one.

Avec des crayons de couleur je les ai colorées en faisant un dégradé de bleus. Puis j’ai utilisé la matrice de la grande fleur pour embosser tout autour et la faire ressortir. J’ai tamponné les sentiments avec de l’encre bleue.

I coloured them with colour pencils making a blue gradient. Then I used the matching die of the big flower to dry emboss the outlines and make it popping up. I stamped the sentiments with blue inks.

Pour finir j’ai tracé un cadre avec la planche à tracer, j’ai collé le panel sur une double carte blanche et j’ai collé quelques strass bleus.

To finish I made a frame with my scoring board all around the card stock, I adhered it on the double white card and I glued some bleu rhinestones.

Stamp & die: CAS-ual Fridays “Mon ami” – Inks: Altenew “See glass”, Versafine “Majestic blue” – Colour pencils : Faber-Castell Polychromos “#147, 152, 151, 246”.

2/ Nous partageons votre chagrin

Pour faire l’embossage de cette carte j’ai utilisé un classeur de gaufrage bordure. Et une fois embossé j’ai passé délicatement mon encreur blanc par dessus.

To make the dry embossing of this card I used a border embossing folder. Once embossed I delicately scrubbed my white ink pad on top.

J’ai découpé des libellules dans du papier argenté avec une matrice et je les ai collés. Puis j’ai tamponné en blanc le sentiment.

I die cut the dragonflies in a silvery paper and I glued them. Then I stamped the sentiment in white.

Stamp: Simply Graphic “Planche Condoléances” – Ink: Hero Arts “Unicorn” – Embossing folder : Darice “Nature theme” – Die : Memory Box “Dragonfly stems left corner”.

Happy and so honoured to be the winner over at Gerda Steiner Share your Designs

 

Quand j’ai acheté cet adorable set de tampons, j’avais déjà cette carte dans la tête. Depuis longtemps j’ai ce classeur de gaufrage qui, bien que ce ne soit pas du bambou, m’y a toujours fait penser.

When I bought this adorable stamps set, I already had this card in my mind. For a long time already, I have this embossing folder in my stash, and even if it is not bamboo, it always made me think of it.

J’ai donc fabriqué un diffuseur dans un carton pour que la partie où je voulais tamponner le panda ne soit pas embossée.

So I made a diffuser in a thick card stock in order that the part where I wanted to stamp the panda was not embossed.

Une fois embossé, j’ai tamponné le panda avec de l’encre noire puis je l’ai coloré avec des crayons de couleur. Sur une autre feuille blanche j’ai tamponné seulement les pattes que j’ai découpé à la main pour les coller par dessus.

Once embossed, I stamped the panda with black ink and I coloured it with colour pencils. On another white card I stamped the paws only and I fussy cut them to glue them on top.

Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment en noir et vert bambou !

To finish I stamped the sentiment in black and green bamboo !

Stamp: Gerda Steiner “Lovely pandas”, Simply Graphic “Planche un petit coucou” – Ink: Altenew “Bamboo” – Embossing folder : K-Kingdom – Colour Pencils : Faber-Castell Polychromos “#132, 232, 233, 234, 235, 199”.

  1. Three fabulous makes Izzy! I have been drooling over the first card ever since i first saw it – it is just SO beautiful. Your second is a very clever use of dry embossing. But that cheeky panda has stolen my heart. Bravo! that card is incredible xx

  2. Izzy, what a wonderful array of fantastic cards. I love the way you colored the images on the first, and then embossed the top image with the die. Oh and those gems!!! Love the white on gray, and that adorable panda is irresistable! I love the techniques you described. How very creative. I always love to see your artistry! xx

I love that you didn’t emboss the area where he is stamped. Your colouring is masterful. Love the little paws. Your CAS cards are always such a delight because of all the details you manage to add. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  9. Amzing cards, Izzy! Great ideas… I love the white ink on top of your embossing in the second card and the panda card has a brilliant design… How cute!! Your coloring in the first card looks beautiful, such a pretty wonderful ombre effect and a very stylish card layout too. xxx

  10. Such a beautiful first card with great colouring and love how you used the die cut to emboss with. Very elegant second card and what a fun third card with that adorable panda and the ‘bamboo’ embossing. Fabulous collection of cards with stunning inspiration, thank you x.
