Fancy Folds Blog Hop #11 : Pop-up book card

FF banner bigToday is our blog hop #11, and we’re showing a Pop-up Book 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!
I didn’t know what a pop-up book card was, so I had to “Pinterest” it 😉 Turns out it’s another fun fold card : when you open the card, the inside shows a kind of book in the center… how fun is that! 😀
Here is my take on it:

this card showcases the beautiful set Jar of Love. I think it’s a very versatile one, and I enjoyed playing with flowers. The colours I picked are Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. Oh, and a little bit of Mint Macaron <3. The DSP is “Blooms and Bliss”.

Valentines Sheltering Tree

Hello everyone!

The card I share today came up very quickly. I had a precise idea in mind and it all came together nicely: don’t you like it when it happens? 🙂

I love tag cards, I think they are perfect to put into relief your image or your sentiment. And I wanted to make the stunning tree of the Sheltering Tree stamp set very special, because it’s so beautiful.

Shimmer and Shine - Valentines Sheltering Tree - #StampinUp, #ShelteringTree, #ValentinesDay

First of all, I stamped the tree in Soft Suede (the photo makes it darker, but in reality it’s a nice warm brown), then the leaves in Blushing Bride. Before stamping, I used a sponge dauber to ink some of the leaves in Calypso Coral. Then I fussy-cut the tree. I made a tag from a piece of cardstock and added faux-stitching with a gel pen. The white cardstock of the tag seemed a bit harsh so I toned it down with a light cover of Blushing Bride, applied with another sponge dauber. I punched a hole, looked for a ribbon in my stash to find a colour similar to the pinks I used. Too bad I didn’t have any Stampin’Up! matching ribbon, this is precisely what I love in this company, every products goes together!

The card base is a retired colour cardstock, Pretty in Pink, because I didn’t have any Blushing Bride left! I really have to put an order soon 😉 but I think it went well with the other shades of pink anyway. I randomly stamped the standalone “pack” of leaves with Blushing Bride ink to give a bit of texture and adhered the tad, the tree and the sentiment (also stamped in Soft Suede and hand cut) with foam pads. Of course there had to be some bling, so a few rhinestones were added here and there…

I’d like to link this card to the Inkspirational challenge: Rose colours

Teachers gift – Christmas 2014

Hello!

Today I’ll share the little gifts I made for my daughter’s teachers. If you have seen my last post, you’ll recognize the design! I loved the card so much, I had to make a variation with different colours.

I made a star-shaped box and a matching card for both teachers. I figured out how to make the star box myself, learning from my (many!) mistakes, but you can follow this very convenient tutorial from my friend Tracy. A little time consuming, but simple and effective 🙂

I made the first one in Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate :

and the second one in Pool Party and Smoky Slate :

Shimmer and Shine - Teachers gift Christmas 2014 - #StampinUp #Star #Framelit Dies - Pool Party and Smoky Slate

 

The sentiment is not from Stampin’Up! : I don’t have any French greetings for Christmas… yet 😉

Of course, I filled the boxes with chocolates 🙂 and Daphnée “wrote” a little message for her teachers inside the card.

Supplies (Stampin’Up!):

  • Stamp set: Many Merry Stars
  • Inks: Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Smoky Slate
  • Dies: Stars Framelit Dies
  • Papers: Whisper White cardstock, Smoky Slate cardstock
  • The Rhinestones were coloured with alcohol markers. You can use the wonderful Blendabilities to match whichever colour you want : how cool is that?
