 Fancy Folds Blog Hop: Center Step Card!
I know that everyone in the Stampin’up! world will show you some cool products from the new catalogue. I would have loved to put an order, sadly I haven’t been able to for the moment. So I decided I needed to give a little bit of TLC to some old stamps, and the one I love but haven’t played much with was the Sheltering Tree. I don’t really know why, but now I have decided to showcase it 🙂

Fancy Folds Blog Hop #3: Shutter card!

FF banner big

Today is our third blog hop, and we’re showing a Shutter Card ! I discovered this type of card a few weeks before and indeed it’s great fun to make one!

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:

Shimmer and Shine - Fancy Folds Blog Hop #3: Shutter card - Mother's Day

(sorry for the poor quality of the photos, my husband changed the settings and I didn’t know how to put the usual settings back! )

I must say I love decorating belly bands. I think they give any box or card an elegant finishing touch, and this one is one of my favourite… The pretty peony from You’ve Got This goes so nicely with the frame tag from Everything Eleanor, you’d think they were designed to work together…

The frame tag is stamped in Pool Party on a Pool Party cardstock and then fussy cut. The peony is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with alcool markers. It has then received a coat of Wink of Stella. A few rhinestones were added as dew drops.

The base of the shutter card itself is from Pool Party cardstock and I created a “DSP” with the butterfly from You’ve Got This stamp set in Pool Party ink and the little snowflakes from Sheltering Tree in Mint Macaron. If you’re familiar with this blog, you know I love to create my DSP… maybe it is because I don’t feel as guilty when I cut it as I do when I cut a real DSP paper?

The inside has got a panel from the same handmade DSP. I adhered a Wisteria Wonder panel above, on which I die cut a circle, with the circle framelits. Two Perfect Plum banners make the shutter part below the Wisteria Wonder panel. To decorate the shutter, I stamped one of the tags from Everything Eleanor. Inside, there is a little sentiment from Circle of Spring for Mother’s Day (which occurs in May in France). The butterfly inside reminds of the ones on the outside.

  • Stamps: You’ve Got This, Everything Eleanor, Sheltering Tree, Circle of Spring
  • Dies: Circle framelits, Banner framelits
  • Papers: Pool Party, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum
  • Inks: Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Perfect Plum, Memento Tuxedo Black

Fancy Folds Blog Hop – Easel card

Fancy Folds Design Team

Hello everyone!

Today I’ve got some very exciting news to share with you… I’m taking part in the Fancy Folds DT!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read the message the lovely Patrice sent to me, but of course I said yes! I feel greatly honoured to be playing with a bunch of incredibly talented ladies!

This is our first blog hop, and we’re making an Easel card ! I must say I never made one before, so I was happy to discover how to do it. It is quite simple actually, I wonder why I never tried. Something to do with my comfort zone, maybe? 😉

If you’re coming from Tanja’s blog, 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!

So here is my card:

Shimmer and Shine - Fancy Folds Blog Hop - Easel card - #StampinUp, #AWorldofThanks, #Botanical #Builder, #Pansy, #PetitePetals, #Fabulous #Four

I used Crumb Cake as my card base. I made a frame with another piece of Crumb Cake, that I die-cut with a square framelit. I pierced all around the aperture with a paper piercer.

The inside is also made with a piece of Crumb Cake, heat embossed in white with the background stamp “A world of Thanks”.

The fluffy flower is made with three Real Red pansies punched out and a Petite Petal flower stamped in Tangerine Tango. I hand cut it as I didn’t want the white edge to show. A pearl coloured with alcohol markers gives a nice finishing touch to the flower. The leaf is from the Botanical Bloom stamp set and die-cut with the Botanical Builder framelit.

To make the card stand up, I addhered a thin strip of Crumb Cake cardstock and another one in Real Red. The heat embossed sentiment comes from the Fabulous Four stamp set.

Here you can see the card closed :
