3rd tag : stocking...

First, Happy Thanksgiving ! I want to thank you all for taking interest in my projects. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have a blog and try so many different crafts. You're my blessing.

That said, let's get back to my 30 tags...
Are you a hoarder ? I am. That's why you can see a lot of older products in my work. I have to use them now ! So you see the same Recollections paper than last year for my Christmas card in this tag. 

I also used a silver mesh founded at Michaels, Prima Marketing poinsettias, a Making Memories journaling tag and silver Liquid Pearls. And the Heritage cartridge with my Cricut Expression.

Don't forget to follow me and comment for a chance to win a prize at the end of the 30 days of tags...
Tomorrow's tag will be a lot different, in shape and colors...
See you then !

The first of my Christmas tag

Hello everyone !

I'm back at my desk after 10 days of intense shopping in Houston, Tx, and I'm very late in my scrapbook work...
Luckily, I did have three tags ready for my giveaway, waiting from last year to be seen. In fact they're matching few of the cards I made for Christmas !

Let me do a quick reminder of how things gonna work this time. I will show you a tag each day during 30 days before Christmas, starting today.
Two prizes are to be won after these 30 days, both sponsored by DCWV and myself (I added the stamps) :

  •  one choosen randomly between all the comments of my blog's followers (by Google+, Google friend, Bloglovin or by email), so the more you comment during these 30 days, the more you will have a chance to win the first prize. Winner will be announced on the 26th of December.

First prize : DCVW gems stickers, DCVW Storybook Christmas tag stack, 2 wrinkle-free glue stick by Scotch, 2 packs of doodles buttons by Crafting With Buttons, 4 DCVW cards and envelopes, Prima Marketing acrylic stamp

  • one choosen randomly between all the followers who will vote for their favorite tag between the 12/25/14 and the 01/02/15. Winner to be announced on the 3rd of January.

Second prize : a sampler of cards by DCVW, Winter tag stack by DCVW, a whole bunch of buttons, and Prima Marketing acrylic stamp

Enough with the rules, just let the creativity juice flow and take a look at the first tag !

This tag was made with Recollections papers, Prima Marketing flowers and leaves, white half-pearls, alpha stickers covered with red glitter, and silver Liquid Pearls. I cut the tag with my Cricut Expression and the Heritage cartridge. I'm particularly proud of this tag, because it was published in Cricut Holidays (October 13). I think it's a great match for this card and this one.

That's it for the first day of my 30 tags before Christmas giveaway ! I hope you like the first tag and the idea of this giveaway, and I hope to see you several time before Christmas !

To enter the second drawing, you must be a follower of my blog, and vote for your favorite tag. The winner will be choose randomly too.

This personal challenge of mine will start on Tuesday, 25th of November. You will have until the 25th of December to follow and comment in order to be eligible for the 1st prize.

Masking technique with stamp

Hello everyone !

Here is my inspiration post for the Feeling Sketchy Blog : I will show you how I reduced the size of the stamp on of my card from last month challenge :

I did reduce the size because this stamp (MME, Miss Caroline collection) did not fit the tag, so I used the masking technique to do so. See the difference :

First, ink the center of the stamp :

Use two pieces of paper for the masking :

Stamp your image with the papers masking the side :

Now you have your image without side...

Ink the left side of the stamp :

Use a piece a paper to mask the stamped image and stamp the left side, with the already stamped image as point of reference :

Tada ! You have an image with a left side !

Ink the right side :

And stamp as the other side but on the right side this time :

Tada again ! You have your stamp at a smaller size !

I hope this post gave you a lot of idea to resize your stamps !

See you soon...
