Cross-Canada Blog Hop for March

Bonjour / Hola / Hello,
Welcome to this month's Cross-Canada blog hop, featuring the 9 stamp sets that are available in French, Spanish and English. When you flip through the catalogues those stamps are identified with a World globe icon.

If you've arrived from Caroline's blog Caroline's Creations then you are in the right place!

I love that Close To My Heart now sells stamps in FRENCH !! Oui, oui, c'est vrai !

I chose to make two cards using the Finding the Words - French stamp set (D1646F). It has a whopping 34 words and images. And I chose the cheerful paper from Some Kinda Wonderful.
Finding the Words - French  (D1646F)

The first card I made is a BFF (Best Friends Forever) card because these little girls are soooo darling. They were easy to cut using the School Kids thincuts which come with a coordinating stamp set. The bundle is on sale this month 25% off. Oui c'est vrai !

When colouring with alcohol markers, stamp your images using Memento ink so the black doesn't bleed.

School Kids stamp and thincuts 

The second card for this hop I made is a birthday card - Bonne Fête. the word fête is so cute and small that I stamped it several times across the pink band.

You can use the Shin Han alcohol markers to colour in the sequins too. The camera doesn't pick it up but they are now hot pink on both cards. A girl can never have enough pink or shimmery sequins right?

  1. Super cute. Love the school girls! So fun.

    1. those girls are so cute - even if you don't have kids in school.

  2. Awesome-sauce!
    Love the little amies (beautifully coloured) and the hot-pink B-day card. Using sentiment stamps to create patterned paper is brilliant.

  3. Even more inspiration along the hop! Fun creations you have here, Dominique!

  5. So perfect. Those kids are the best in any language...Love it.

    1. thanks - and the thincuts make it so easy to cut out those kids - I hate fussy cutting

  6. Those school girls are my favourite - so cute! Love the use of colour in your cards and the sentiment stamping as background. Great job! - Charlene Weiss-Colgan
