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.

Happy birthday – SU You’ve got this – part 1

Hello!

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:

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - You've Got This, Hey You

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.

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - You've Got This, Hey You

The card base is made with a Simon Says Wide Stripes stamp, in Pacific Point on a Pacific Point cardstock.

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - You've Got This, Hey You

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!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: SU! You’ve got this, Hey You (retired), Simon Says Wide Stripes background stamp
  • Inks: Pacific Point, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Markers: Promarkers
  • Papers: Pacific Point
  • Embellishment: Rhinestones

Pivoine violette

Hello!

La carte d’aujourd’hui met en scène la superbe pivoine du set “You’ve got this”. Les pivoines font partie de mes fleurs préférées alors il me fallait ce set 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Purple Peony - #StampinUp #YouveGotThis, #OneBigMeaning

J’ai d’abord tamponné la pivoine avec l’encre Memento Tuxedo Black, pour pouvoir la colorier avec des feutres à alcool. J’ai utilisé différentes nuances pour un rendu plus réaliste. Puis je l’ai découpée à la main.

Shimmer and Shine - Purple Peony - #StampinUp #YouveGotThis, #OneBigMeaning

Pour créer le fond, j’ai tamponné la pivoine plusieurs fois sur le papier, en faisant attention d’enlever l’encre de la tige. Puis j’ai colorié le fond tout autour des fleurs en gris très clair (toujours feutre à alcool). J’ai découpé des feuilles dans du papier blanc et du vélin, créé une bannière pour mon sentiment, monté la fleur grâce à des mousses adhésives. Quelques sequins apportent la touche de bling requise.

Purple Peony

Hello!

My card for today shows the beautiful peony from “You’ve got this” stamp set. In real life, peonies are one of my favourite flowers so I had to have this stamp 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Purple Peony - #StampinUp #YouveGotThis, #OneBigMeaning

First I stamped the peony in Memento Tuxedo Black, to be able to colour it with alcohol markers. I used various shades to give a more realistic look. Then I fussy cut it.

Shimmer and Shine - Purple Peony - #StampinUp #YouveGotThis, #OneBigMeaning

To create the background, I stamped the peony multiple times, carefully removing the ink on the stem. Then I coloured all around the flowers with a very light grey alcohol marker. I die cut some leaves in white cardstock and vellum, created a banner for my sentiment and mounted the purple peony with foam adhesives. A few sequins were added to give the mandatory bit of shine.

I hope you like it 🙂

Supplies (Stampin’Up!) :

  • Stamp Set : You’ve got this, Le sens de la reconnaissance (One Big Meaning)

Floral Thanks in 3 colours – New Catalogue 2015-2016

Hello!

The new 2015-2016 Stampin’Up! Catalogue is available, and it’s full of beautiful stamps, dies, punches, ribbons and so many other lovely products!

As a demonstrator, we got the privilege to order a few products before the official release, and today’s cards use the stunning flower of “You’ve got this” stamp set.

I chose to colour the flowers with alcohol markers, but you could totally play with watercolour (wich I intent to do later) to get a softer effect. I made three cards, in yellow tones, peach tones and velvet red tones. All three cards are made the same, mated on kraft cardstock and a soft background of little leaves from the Perpetual Calendar stamp set stamped with Baked Brown Sugar ink. The flowers are fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesive. A few rhinestones coloured with alcohol markers complete the cards.

In yellow:
