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…
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.

Today 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!
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…

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… ❤
- Stamps: Cottage Greetings, Best Thoughts (inside)
- Dies: Rose Garden
- Inks: Blushing Bride
- Papers: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Love Blossoms DSP, Blushing Bride Glimmer paper

Today’s card is a CASE from one I spotted on Pinterest. You can have a look at the gorgeous original here. The rich colours and the beautiful colouring made me want to make my own version:
The peony from You’ve Got This stamp set is coloured with Promarkers, fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesives on a white “tag” from Spellbinders. While the “tag” was still inside the die, I pierced all around the shape to get this pretty framed effect. I love it!
The sentiment is from a retided SU stamp set, Hey You.
The card base is made with a Simon Says Wide Stripes stamp, in Pacific Point on a Pacific Point cardstock.
I used this pretty peony before: here or here, in different colours. I absolutely adore it. I’m currently waiting for real ones to grow up in my garden… I brought them from UK because they were being eaten down by voracious slugs. Last year they grew up but no flowers bloomed, I guess they needed to recover as they were never able to see the light before these nasty slugs ate them! So I’m hopping this year they’ll bloom 🙂
Please come back tomorrow as I’ll share another version of this card!
- Stamps: SU! You’ve got this, Hey You (retired), Simon Says Wide Stripes background stamp

Today the Poulettes have decided to take up a challenge: create a shutter card. It looked like something fun to make, so everybody wanted to give it a try. Let’s see what each one has created by hopping from one blog to another!
You should have arrived from Mylou’s blog. If not, head to the end of this post to start at the beginning.
Here is what I came up with: a masculine Valentines shutter card!
I used this tutorial from StampInTexas to make my shutter card. It’s very easy to make and I’ll make more in the future because they are really fun! I did not want to play with traditional Valentines colours, because my husband likes more masculine colours and patterns.
I used Sahara Sand cardstock as the card base. The front panels were stamped in Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand, with a stamp I never used before: the “angle” one from the Dotty Angles set. I have been wondering how to use it from quite a long time, so I’m really chuffed to bit to have found a nice project for it. I like to use all the stamps from a stamp set and I frequently use the “dotty” stamp, so now I feel happy 🙂
The inside is made with another panel, stamped in the same colours as above, but this time the little dotty lines are from the Watercolour Wings stamp set. The panel was die cut with a circle, to create a window for my sentiment, wich is die cut too with a smaller circle.
The “shutter” part is made with two banner die cuts in Pacific Point. They show the sentiment when you open the card!
Lastly, a Sahara Sand belly band holds everything together. I added two stars in Pacific Point and Marina Mist and another sentiment from Watercolor Wings. The stars have been decorated with a blue gel pen.
That’s it! Now I hope my photo addict husband will like it! 🙂
Stamps: Dotty Angles, Watercolor Wings,
Dies: Stars thinlits, Banner thinlits, Circle thinlits
Inks & Papers: Sahara Sand, Marina Mist, Pacific Point
