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!

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!

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

Sparkly Noël

Hello!

I’m usually not a “sketch” kind of girl. I honestly struggle to follow a sketch, but when I saw the creations of the other “Poulettes”, I had to give it a try.

Of course, I did not follow the sketch exactly, but you can still recognise it, right? right???

Here is the sketch:

and here is what I created…

Let’s say some elements decided to move to other parts of the cards 😉

Here is a close-up:

Too bad I didn’t have any beautiful Gold Soirée DSP from SU, it would have been great… I had to find a way to “fake” some, so I made the golden stripes by hand, with a ruler and a gel pen… 😉

I like how intricate this Noël die from Wonderful Wreath is… The “Joyeux” is from another set, “Cottage Greetings”. The little star-flowers are from Wonderful wreath too, I think it goes very well with the Petite Petals punch, doesn’t it?

Supplies (Stampin’up):

  • Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Gold Glimmer paper, gold foil sheets
  • Inks: (not SU) Delicata Golden Glitz
  • Die: Wonderful Wreath, Circles
  • Punch: Pansy, Petite Petals
  • Embellishment: (not SU) Uniball Gold gel pen, (not SU) black pearls
