Mtw December MAIN challenge

Nous voilà déjà arrivées au dernier défi de l'année chez More Than words

I BELIEVE that love can change the world. I believe that peace on earth can be possible and I believe that each of us must do their part to achieve this same ultimate goal to make things better. For our STAMPING creative challenge I stamped randomly over my background with ink and with white embossing powder. I also added stamped and embossed feathers over vellum paper. 
Finally, as we say in French, Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année 2019!

Les papiers, fleurs et étampes sont de 49 and Market
Les badges sont de Cuts2luv
La poudre d'embossage est de Lindy's gang

Merci de votre visite et n'hésitez pas à venir participer!

Les joies de l'hiver - 49 and Market

Hi everyone!
I'm here today to share my first layout using the new “Winter Edges” collection! You will love it’s little vintage look that is super polyvalent for the holidays season! Our little tradition here as soon as November arrives is to get our first “red cup” at Starbucks. Hub and I are coffee lovers!
49 and Market products used: 
Winter edges laser cuts
Winter edges “Season’s greeting paper
Blossom blend “Poppy”
Winter edges “Robin’s note” paper
Floral mixology “Blood orange”
Botanical Potpourri “Grenadine”
Botanical Potpourri “Bottle green” 
“1787” stamp set by Pascale
I’ve used 1797 stamp set with white embossing powder to add lights to my background. With a red ink from Lindy’s, I added some watercolor touches.
I used Robin’s note over Season’s greeting papers to make my background.
The little pinecones are ADORABLE, I layered flowers and many laser cuts from the Winter edges sheet to showcase my picture.
Finally, red and green flowers from the Botanical potpourri collection were the perfect add on to complete my layout!
All the embellishments and flowers are perfect match with this gorgeous picture I found on the net.
That’s it for today, thanks again for being here with me!
See you next month!

Happiness is...

Hi gang!
Today I was very inspired by a blue and earth tones combo I saw on a challenge page. I immediately though about those beautiful big blue flowers I had in my 49 and Market stash and wanted to create with them. I found that lovely picture that reminds me that winter is just ahead here in Canada.

49 and Market products used: 
“Tattered clock” paper from Tattered garden collection
“Rations” Stamp set by Pascale
“Crackle texture” stamp set by Gabi
“Sky blue” Stargazers flowers
“Marina” Botanical blends flowers
“Shadow” Botanical blends flowers
“Linen” Garden seeds flowers
With different kind of flowers, I framed my picture. I used all coordinated shades to fit into that combo I loved so much. Natural pine cones were the perfect touch to make this layout just a bit more wintery.
Love this Stargazers so much! Lilies are my favorite flowers. They are so easy to use with any themes.
You can see I randomly stamped on my background to add a bit of texture all around. I used white ink over a stencil and made a few splatters around to have a bit of light everywhere.
I hope you like it, I had a lot of fun creating my first wintery layout of the year. It will warm my heart when snow will come for real.

Magical Layout!

This month I played with my Magical shakers. I love them and I sometimes forget to use them to create my own embellishments.
I challenged my self to use only my shakers on this layout! No spray ink!
Here’s the result!

First, I chose 3 Magical shakers that were looking great together. I picked Oom pah pah pinkOktoberfest Orange and Cuckoo Clock Cardinal.
I sprinkled some over some stamps I made on a watercolor paper. Then I gently sprayed water over the powder to make it react just a little. Don’t put too much water if you want to have the same effect.

Once dried, I fuzzy cut all my flowers and leaves. After this, I mixed Cuckoo Clock Cardinal and Oom Pah pah pink with some paper paste to color it a bit.

When still wet, I sprinkled over my paste a bit of Cuckoo clock cardinal embossing powder to have some red touch on my background.

With the same magical shakers, I colored cheese cloth to add behind my embellishments.

Here’s some close ups of my layout.
I really love that Magical shaker effect!

With using the same 3 shakers for my entire layout, I have a perfect coordinate arrangement!

Lovely layout for 49 and Market

Hi everyone!
I made this layout featuring a lot of products from the Cottage life collection last year. With a wonderful picture of my niece pregnant with the first girl of the family, I wanted to put the accent over my composition so I used a dark background to make it pop even more.
49 and Market products used: 
“Cottage cut outs” paper from Cottage life collection
“Eclectic pieces” paper from Captured Adventure collection
Cottage life layered embellishements
Sweet reflexion Lock and Key stamp set
Botanical Potpourri snow
Botanical Potpourri vintage shades orchid
As I said I used a lot of cuts out on this layout. I started with some texture pasted mixed with a lilac ink to have a shade near my woodgrain paper and to match with the flowers. The layered embellishments are so beautiful and made the whole layout more feminine.
With an oxyde ink from Tim Holtz I stamped some flowers around from the Key and Lock set and I wet them just a bit for a watercolor effect.
A coordinate pink ink added watercoloring all around the embellishments.
I choose a title in the same shades to complete my layout. The botanical potpourri flowers are for sure my favorite! Their multi size are perfect to put everywhere!

Thank you for you time again! See you next month!

Love this for 49 and Market

Hi everyone!
I hope your doing well! Fall is arrived here in North America and this is the season of farm visits and apple picking! My kids love animals and they are always happy to participate in those activities. As you can see, Logan made a new friend with this fluffy bunny at one of our friends little farm.
49 and Market products used: 
Cottage life 12×12 collection pack
“Watering the garden” paper from Cottage life
“Fresh Delivery” paper from Cottage life
“Cottage cut outs” from Cottage life
Blossom blends flower poppy
Cottage life layered embellishments

I started all my layout on the navy blue side of the Fresh Delivery paper. I added modeling paste over a stencil randomly in the middle. Then I took the cuts out paperand I fuzzy cut a lot of flowers, leaves, rooster, ladybug, butterflies etc… I put my picture right in the middle over an enveloppe and started to layer my embellishments. I mixed some paper ones and layered ones.
Some blossom blends poppy came at the end to complete my composition. I also made a couple of splats with a white ink to make texture. The red title went at the top to add a pop of color over my layout.
Some more close ups
The rooster was perfect for this “farm style” looking I wanted. I finished my layout with adding the red stripes from the paper Watering the garden on both side of the page. It frames the picture just a bit more to keep the eye focus in the middle.
Thank you for you time, see you later this month with another page!
