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.

Fancy Folds Blog Hop #11 : Pop-up book card

FF banner bigToday is our blog hop #11, and we’re showing a Pop-up Book 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!
I didn’t know what a pop-up book card was, so I had to “Pinterest” it 😉 Turns out it’s another fun fold card : when you open the card, the inside shows a kind of book in the center… how fun is that! 😀
Here is my take on it:

this card showcases the beautiful set Jar of Love. I think it’s a very versatile one, and I enjoyed playing with flowers. The colours I picked are Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. Oh, and a little bit of Mint Macaron <3. The DSP is “Blooms and Bliss”.

Shimmer and Shine - Bear Hugs - Dream Theme Blog Hop : Christmas

I used Fa-la-la-la Friends from Stampin’up, with the coordinating dies. I love the festive fish lol, had to make it the star of my background 😉 The bears were coloured with Promarkers. The little star comes from the Totally Trees stamp set.

This is the inside. I like to create a matching inside, I think it gives a really nice finishing touch.

Circus birthday

Hello!

Long time no see… I miss it!

Here’s a card I made for my daughter, who has been invited to a birthday last week, and the theme was “the circus”. So, of course I had to make a matching card 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Circus Birthday

I used the colours (red stripes, blue and yellow stars) on the invite to create my card. I thought the cute lion with his little hat would be perfect for a little boy !

Shimmer and Shine - Circus Birthday

This is my daughter’s writing… she’s learning and she’s eager to write on her own 🙂 I’m so proud of her!

Supplies:

  • stamps : Lawn Fawn Critters on the Savanna, LF So much to say, LF Birthday Tags, LF Starry Backdrops, My Favorite Things Striped BG
  • Inks : SU! Real Red, SU! Tempting Turquoise
  • Papers : SU! Crushed Curry
  • Promarkers

Thanks for visiting!

Anniversaire et cirque

Hello!

ça fait longtemps que je n’ai pas posté… beaucoup de travail en ce moment, j’aimerais bien pouvoir crafter plus pourtant. Donc je saisis toutes les occasions : cette carte était destinée à un petit copain de Daphnée qui l’avait invitée pour son anniversaire. Le thème de l’anniversaire était “le cirque”, donc bien entendu il fallait que ma carte soit coordonnée 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Circus Birthday

J’ai utilisé les couleurs de l’invitation (rayures rouges, étoiles bleues et jaunes) et j’ai pensé que le mignon petit lion avec son chapeau de fête serait parfait pour un petit garçon !

Shimmer and Shine - Circus Birthday

C’est l’écriture de ma fille… elle apprend et a hâte de savoir écrire et lire toute seule 🙂 je suis très fière de ses progrès !

Produits :

  • Tampons : Lawn Fawn Critters on the Savanna, LF So much to say, LF Birthday Tags, LF Starry Backdrops, My Favorite Things Striped BG
  • Encres : SU! Real Red, SU! Tempting Turquoise
