A “fairy” sweet Tinkerbell birthday party for my daughters

Hello!

October is a busy month for our family, as our two daughters were born in October, 2 years apart. This year, I wanted to make a party for both as they are in the same preschool and they share friends and fun during school days 🙂

My daughters are fond of princesses, fairies and magic, so I went for a Tinkerbell theme for their birthday party. These are the invites they gave to their friends:

Shimmer and Shine - a "fairy" sweet birthday party

The little fairy comes from the Pixie Dust stamp set from Avery Elle. The cloud border is from Lawn Fanw, and so is the star background stamp. The “Invitation” die cut is from Toga.

I had lot of fun setting up the table, everything had to be color coordinated.

So green clear plates, golden glasses, green butterfly sequins, green and gold glitter… you name it. The girls were all dressed as princesses or fairies!

We even had some “Pixie Dust” for real in these little glass drops… so cool!

The 8 little girls made their own magic wand, and sprinkled some pixie dust on them…

Well… we’re all exausted but happy tonight… the girls had a blast! I wonder what I’ll make next year for their birthday party… but until then, I’ve got Halloween to keep me busy hehehe 😀

thank you for visiting!

Circus birthday

Hello!

Long time no see… I miss it!

Here’s a card I made for my daughter, who has been invited to a birthday last week, and the theme was “the circus”. So, of course I had to make a matching card 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Circus Birthday

I used the colours (red stripes, blue and yellow stars) on the invite to create my card. I thought the cute lion with his little hat would be perfect for a little boy !

Rose Garden Happy Birthday

Hi!

Today I’m sharing the card I made for my mum’s birthday.

We both love flowers and I thought she would like this beautiful rose die-cut, as I do. Especially in soft tones and glitter!

Shimmer and Shine - Rose Garden Happy Birthday - Stampin'up, Blushing Bride Glimmer paper, Cottage Greetings

The card base is made from Blushing Bride cardstock. A piece of the cute Love Blossoms DSP makes a sweet background, and I soften it even more by adding on top a piece of vellum because I really wanted the rose to be the focal point of the card.

The rose was die-cut on the stunning Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. It is so shiny!

Shimmer and Shine - Rose Garden Happy Birthday - Stampin'up, Blushing Bride Glimmer paper, Cottage Greetings

The sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set, stamped in Blushing Bride. Little pearls suround the sentiment to give a glamour touch without competiting with the glitter on the rose die cut.

The inside has another stamp from Cottage Greetings and a butterfly from Best Thoughts. Sadly I forgot to take a photo of the inside…

My mum loved the card, and I do too: I love the intricate die cut, the shine of the glimmer paper and the soft, muted tones… ❤

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Cottage Greetings, Best Thoughts (inside)
  • Dies: Rose Garden
  • Inks: Blushing Bride
  • Papers: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Love Blossoms DSP, Blushing Bride Glimmer paper
  • Embellishment: adhesive pearls

Happy birthday – SU You’ve got this – part 1

Hello!

Today’s card is a CASE from one I spotted on Pinterest. You can have a look at the gorgeous original here. The rich colours and the beautiful colouring made me want to make my own version:

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - You've Got This, Hey You

The peony from You’ve Got This stamp set is coloured with Promarkers, fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesives on a white “tag” from Spellbinders. While the “tag” was still inside the die, I pierced all around the shape to get this pretty framed effect. I love it!

The sentiment is from a retided SU stamp set, Hey You.

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - You've Got This, Hey You

The card base is made with a Simon Says Wide Stripes stamp, in Pacific Point on a Pacific Point cardstock.

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - You've Got This, Hey You

I used this pretty peony before: here or here, in different colours. I absolutely adore it. I’m currently waiting for real ones to grow up in my garden… I brought them from UK because they were being eaten down by voracious slugs. Last year they grew up but no flowers bloomed, I guess they needed to recover as they were never able to see the light before these nasty slugs ate them! So I’m hopping this year they’ll bloom 🙂

Please come back tomorrow as I’ll share another version of this card!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: SU! You’ve got this, Hey You (retired), Simon Says Wide Stripes background stamp
  • Inks: Pacific Point, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Markers: Promarkers
  • Papers: Pacific Point
  • Embellishment: Rhinestones

American Football jersey card

Hi!

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday, a very good occasion to go back to my desk and play with papers. It felt good, it truly is a craft therapy for me.

My husband is a big fan of american football. He has played for years and now he’s playing with the Templiers d’Elancourt. So I decided to make him a jersey-shaped birthday card. Let me tell you that was not easy as I had lots of tiny parts to cut by hand… I wish I had a die for that 😉

Shimmer and Shine - American Football jersey card - #StampinUp #Little #Letters #thinlits

I’m quite chuffed with the result, to be honest 😉 and most importantly: he was happy too 😉

Supplies:

  • Dies: Stampin’Up! Little Letters Thinlits
  • Papers: SU Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
  • White gel pen
