Missing you & Perfect day cards for Creative Embellishments

It's my turn on the Creative Embellishments blog today. I've been thinking about visiting an old friend that lives far away. So I made 2 cards. One to send prior to my visit and one to leave behind as a thank your for her hospitality.


The first card is a simple 6 x 6 that I distressed the contours of the papers. I left the title and the flourish chipboards with the natural look. For the leaves, I covered them with Gesso, the with a coat of Iridescent pebeo turquoise paint.


I love the effect of this paint on the chipies:


For the second card, no alterations, I mainly played with the floral arrangements and gave the background a mixed-media effect:

Winter Wonderland for Creative Embellishments

Have you ever been to Canada? Of not, let's just say that we have some really challenging winters. This reminded me of a day when we went skiing with our friends at Bromont mountain. You know that day that your all excited about spending the days with your friends and family and forget to look at what the weather will be like? 
I've had this picture for a while sleeping in my stash. I remember how cold it was when I took my glove off to take this one. It was coooooold.
My inspiration for this page came from this beautiful chipboard title: Winter Wonderland


For this project I did many steps.

I started with the coloring of the blue title and snowflakes. I primed my chipboard with Gesso, then covered them with this Iridescent paint from Pebeo.




The next step was to color the dream catcher and frame in a red orange color and then I added some snow paste from the Finnabair product line. 

This small phrase is truly perfect for that day because we truly were frozen.


Then I just added my beautiful snowflake flairs and some flowers:

Voyage Cuts2luv and entry for Lindy's Stamp gang challenge & White with 1.

I don't know about you, but I just can't wait for summer to arrive. I've been on vacation planning mode and started to dream about the beach again. This was my inspiration for this page.

I was inspired by the 2 blues and the soft pink of the color combo set. I started my background using the blues:


Then I heat embossed the flowers, colored with the light blue and added a small touch of the pink. The pink is so soft, it's challenging to take a good picture.


Here are a few more pictures of the details:




I just loved theses embossed Altenew flowers that I felt I needed to keep the ornaments to a minimum to not lose them in the details.

Now, here is the beautiful mood-board from Lindy's that was a source of inspiration for my page:



Lindy's product used on this page are the following:




My second challenge entry is for White with one. I am in Love with this Helium blue:

Petaloo & Creative Embellishments cross promo

Hi everyone, France here today to inspire you with our Petaloo and Creative Embellishments cross promo. Our theme is mother's day. For my project, I chose myself. Being a mother has been the most challenging role that I have taken in my life. On a daily basis, I remind myself that if I believe in myself, if I work to live my dreams and choose to be happy that I will be giving my teenage sons a good role model.

I had fun making this page bright and colorful. I love flowers, as a mom, I often get spoiled by receiving some from my boys or my husband. So playing with all the wonderful colored Petaloo flowers was just wonderful. Here are some of the sets I used:
Here are a few snapshots for a closer look:
  Believe, I love this word from the Inspire word set.
You might have noticed a few of my chipboards, delicatly included with my flower clusters. This one set has become a recent favorite its the Rose Set 2 chipboard set. It's just amazing
I hope you are enjoying our cross-promo? I'll wish you best of luck in winning the beautiful goodies.
Have a great day !
