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!
Twist and Pop card are all the rage at the moment, so there was plenty of inspiration on Internet. I tried to step out of my comfort zone and try a new colour combo for a baby. There are lots of baby coming late December and in January in my family or friends, and I love to create baby cards.
Here is my take on it:

I used the Balloon Celebration set. These little stars and the clouds are lovely! The front sentiment comes from Jar of Love. I like to mix stamp sets…

The Twist and Pop card is quite easy to do. It folds and open really well and gives an element of surprise to the receiver, that’s fun 🙂

The sentiment comes from the Circle of Spring stamp set. It fits perfectly with a baby card 🙂
The “banners” were made with the Project life dies and the Little Letters thinlits.

Circle of Spring Happy New Year

Hi!

I realised I didn’t share the card I sent to wish my family a happy new year. This year I had so little time to craft that I only sent cards to our grandmothers and parents.

I chose a very simple design but I’m very pleased with the result, the colours are so soft! I felt after the horrid events in Paris in November we all needed sweetness.

My card uses the Circle of Spring stamp set and the sentiment comes from Petite Pairs. The card base is made with Pumpkin Pie cardstock and a Very Vanilla panel. The wreath is coloured with Promarkers and die-cut with the matching dies. To finish off, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella on the bow.
Shimmer and Shine - Happy New Year - #StampinUp, #Circle of #Spring, #Petite #Pairs

The back of the envelope is stamped too, in Wild Wasabi.

A little gift for you… (decorated envelope)

Hello there!

Last week a crafty friend of mine and I exchanged some trading cards for our kids, so I sent her a little package. Of course it had to be pretty 🙂

Funny thing, this is the first time I actually made an envelope with the Envelope punch board, as I always used it to make boxes! How fun is that!

Here is my decorated envelope:

Shimmer and Shine - For you : Decorated envelope - #StampinUp, #Envelope #Punch #Board, #Butterflies Thinlits, #Perpetual #Calendar, #Spring #Circle, #Dotty Angles

The package consists of the envelope and a little card in front. A paper stripe with a big butterfly holds everything together.

Shimmer and Shine - For you : Decorated envelope - #StampinUp, #Envelope #Punch #Board, #Butterflies Thinlits, #Perpetual #Calendar, #Spring #Circle, #Dotty Angles

On the card, I stamped the little butterflies from the Perpetual Calendar in Blushing Bride on Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment comes from the set One Big Meaning. I like that I can hide it under the paper stripe 🙂

The envelope is stamped tone on tone with the dots from Dotty Angles.

Shimmer and Shine - For you : Decorated envelope - #StampinUp, #Envelope #Punch #Board, #Butterflies Thinlits, #Perpetual #Calendar, #Spring #Circle, #Dotty Angles

Shimmer and Shine - For you : Decorated envelope - #StampinUp, #Envelope #Punch #Board, #Butterflies Thinlits, #Perpetual #Calendar, #Spring #Circle, #Dotty Angles

The butterfly die cut from the Butterfly Thinlits is one of my favourite. I love how intricate it is. I put a heart rhinestone on the center. The sentiment “For You” comes from the Circle of Spring.

I really like how it all turned out. It is sweet and delicate, perfect for a very nice lady 🙂

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Perpetual Calendar, Dotty Angles, Spring Circle, One Big Meaning
  • Dies: Butterfly Thinlits Dies
  • Inks: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Papers: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride
  • Tool: Envelope Punch Board

A Big Thank You – from cardigan to paper

 

Hi there!

The card I share today is the paper “transcription” from my daughters’ cardigans… how fun is that? Inspiration really strikes anywhere, any time 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - A big Thank You : from cardigan to paper - #StampinUp, #Butterflies Thinlits dies, #Circle of #Spring

 

Here you can have a look at the cardigan. The collar has silver glitter on it, so I kept this on my design with a silver glitter stripe.

Shimmer and Shine - A big Thank You : from cardigan to paper - #StampinUp, #Butterflies Thinlits dies, #Circle of #Spring

I really love this big bold tone on tone butterfly… so pretty! The sentiment is silver embossed. I added a bow from a silver string I found in my drawer.

5th Poulettes’ Blog Hop – Autumn Colours

Hello,

Today is the release of our beautiful new Autumn Winter Catalogue ! You can find more information on the menu on the right.

And it’s also our Blog Hop day! We have chosen a great colour combo: Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss. Aren’t they beautiful together?

If you’re coming from Didine you’re already hopping. If not, you can hop anytime by clicking on the list below.

Here is what I came up with:

Shimmer and Shine - Autumn Gift Bag - Poulette's Blog Hop - #StampinUp, #Gift #Bag #Punch #Board, #Circle of #Spring, #Wonderful #Wreath #Framelit, #Decorative Mask

A nice Autumn Gift Bag… the Gift Bag Punch Board makes it really easy, and you can choose your size. I used the Stripes Decorative Mask with Hello Honey to create a tone on tone effect on the paper.

Shimmer and Shine - Autumn Gift Bag - Poulette's Blog Hop - #StampinUp, #Gift #Bag #Punch #Board, #Circle of #Spring, #Wonderful #Wreath #Framelit, #Decorative Mask

The flowers have been coloured with Promarkers. I tried to find the closest hue to Stampin’Up! papers. Both the flowers and the bow have been coated with Wink of Stella and Crystal Effect to add interest.

Funny thing, while I was looking for the English name of the stamp set, I came across this little bag… I pinned it long time ago but totally forgot it… it must have inspired me in my subconscious! Isn’t the Mint Macaroon version lovely?

You can now hop to my friend Val‘s and discover her creations 🙂

Supplies (Stampin’Up!) :

  • Stamp Set : Circle of Spring
  • Inks : Memento Tuxedo Black, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey
  • Dies : Wonderful Wreath Framelit Dies
  • Tool : Gift Bag Punch Board
  • Papers : Hello Honey, Whisper White
  • Embellishment : Crystal Effect
  • Promarkers : Crimson / Cardinal Red – Sleigh Bell / Caramel – Marsh Green / Olive Green – Orange / Burnt Orange – Aubergine / Sugar Plum
