World of Thanks gift box and card

Hello!

Today I want to share a gift box and a card I made as a present for a wonderful lady, who happens to be my SU upline : the lovely Tracy May. She is the sweetest person ever. She sent me some chocolate at the beginning of the year, and I wanted to thank her for everything she did for me.

I thought it was the perfect time to use the World of Thanks stamp, as I never inked it before. I love the design of this stamp, especially how it can appear as a simple background or be the star of the show, depending on how you work with it.

So here is what I made for Tracy:

So World of Thanks is stamped in versamark and heat embossed on a Whisper White cardstock, and then I sponged some Tangerine Tango very lightly on the cardstock. It was then mated on a Tangerine Tango cardstock on a Kraft base.

The butterfly is die cut with the Butterflies Thinlits on a Tangerine Tango cardstock. I added 3 red pearls to add interest.

The little hexagon box is made with the same Tangerine Tango and kraft cardstock. I used the hexagon framelits to create the top panel. You can find the tutorial on how to do it here at Craftyhallett (althought I slightly changed the dimensions). I loved the little boxes she made and they caught my eye on Pinterest : go have a look! 🙂

The flower is made with 3 pansies punched and glued together with a Petite Petal on top. The center of the flower and the leaves are made with other punches, not SU though. Again I added a pearl at the center of the flower. If you’ve visited my blog a few weeks ago, maybe you remember seing this flower before : it’s almost the same I put on my easel card.

The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and it fits perfectly on the smallest banner die cut.

Of course if you were wondering, I put some chocolates in the gift box 😉

I hope you like it 🙂

thanks for visiting!

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.

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

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 :

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:

12279118_10153398548569541_8915410668296798815_n

and here is what I created…

Shimmer and Shine - Sparkly Noël - #StampinUp, #Wonderful #Wreath, #Petite #Petal #Punch, #Pansy Punch, #Cottage #Greetings

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

Here is a close-up:

Shimmer and Shine - Sparkly Noël - #StampinUp, #Wonderful #Wreath, #Petite #Petal #Punch, #Pansy Punch, #Cottage #Greetings

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… 😉

Shimmer and Shine - Sparkly Noël - #StampinUp, #Wonderful #Wreath, #Petite #Petal #Punch, #Pansy Punch, #Cottage #Greetings

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

Thanks for visiting!

Pansy Favour Box

Good Evening!

Today I was invited to a crafty afternoon with the wonderful Lola. I wanted to bring her a little present, and I thought Linda’s lovely little gift box was the perfect opportunity for that. Not only is it beautiful, but it doesn’t need any adhesive so I was eager to give it a go. Go and watch Linda’s video on how to make it 🙂
Shimmer and Shine - Pansy Favour Box - #StampinUp, #GiftBox, #Pansy #Punch

I used Basic Grey cardstock for the box, the flower is made with the Pansy punch and the Petite Petals punch.

Shimmer and Shine - Pansy Favour Box - #StampinUp, #GiftBox, #Pansy #Punch

The cardstock colours I used are Basic grey and Smoky Slate for the box and Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon for the flower.

Shimmer and Shine - Pansy Favour Box - #StampinUp, #GiftBox, #Pansy #Punch

A few pearls were added to add a glamourous touch to the flower. A ribbon (from my stash) closes the box.

This favour box would be perfect for a wedding or a baby shower : it’s not too big but you can still put a lot of sweets inside 😉

Hope you like it 🙂

Supplies (Stampin’Up!) :

  • Stamp sets : Tiny Tags
  • Inks : Smoky Slate, Soft Sky
  • Papers: Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, soft Sky, Lost Lagoon
  • Punch: Pansy, Petite Petals, Tiny Tag
  • Embellishment: Pearls Basic Jewels Embellishment
