Rainbow candles for a Happy Birthday!

Hi there!

I know… three posts in a row? 😉 crazy times, hehehe 😉

Today I want to share a card I made for a dear friend of mine…

Shimmer and Shine - Rainbow candles happy birthday - Stampin'up, Big News, star mask, Project Life cards and labels framelits

I wanted it to be cheerful because he’s truly an inspiring person. Happy birthday, Jimmy 🙂

The candles are from the Big News stamp set, stamped in rainbow colours. They’ve been mounted with foam tape and the “flame” has received a coating of Wink of Stella. The white panel is die cut with the Project Life framelit. The card base is made with a Basic Grey cardstock and I used the star mask to draw the little stars with a gel pen.

Supplies:

  • Stamps : Big News
  • Dies: Project Life Cards and Labels framelits
  • Paper: Basic Grey, Whisper White,
  • Inks: Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point, Gumball Green (retired), Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry

Fancy Folds Blog Hop #2: Gatefold Card

Fancy Folds Design TeamToday is our second blog hop, and we’re showing a Gatefold Card ! This one is really easy to make and it brings a bit of novelty for the person who receives the card.

If you’re coming from the talented Tanja, then you’re already hopping. If not, you can find all the blogs list at the end of this post. You don’t want to miss one as everybody’s got some fabulous cards to show you!

Here is what I came up with: a card for a baby!

Shimmer and Shine - Fancy Folds Blog Hop - Gatefold Card - Your baby is big news! - Honeycomb Happiness, Awesomely Artistic, Big News, Circle of Spring

I found the egg shape on Pinterest, printed it on a Soft Sky cardstock and fussy cut it. I sponged the edges with Soft Sky ink and also stamped little droplets from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set to make it look like a real egg. I stamped “Congratulations” in Marina Mist, from the set “Big News”. The bow comes from the Circle of Spring stamp set and it has been die cut with the Wonderful Wreath coordinating dies. The ferns are from Awesomely Artistic, they have been stamped in Pear Pizzaz, like the bow.

The gatefold card in itself is made with Crumb Cake cardstock and the lovely Love Blossoms DSP.

Inside comes a sentiment from Big News in Pear Pizzaz, on a white panel. The DSP is also Love Blossoms. The cutest little chickadee ever is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Promarkers. It sits on a fern nest 🙂

I think that’s a really cute way to celebrate a birth, or even create a card for Easter with the little chickadee… I absolutely love it 🙂

I made a “girly” version, I’ll show it later…

Floral Thanks in 3 colours – New Catalogue 2015-2016

Hello!

The new 2015-2016 Stampin’Up! Catalogue is available, and it’s full of beautiful stamps, dies, punches, ribbons and so many other lovely products!

As a demonstrator, we got the privilege to order a few products before the official release, and today’s cards use the stunning flower of “You’ve got this” stamp set.

I chose to colour the flowers with alcohol markers, but you could totally play with watercolour (wich I intent to do later) to get a softer effect. I made three cards, in yellow tones, peach tones and velvet red tones. All three cards are made the same, mated on kraft cardstock and a soft background of little leaves from the Perpetual Calendar stamp set stamped with Baked Brown Sugar ink. The flowers are fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesive. A few rhinestones coloured with alcohol markers complete the cards.

In yellow:
