Valentine card – loads of love

Oh yes, it’s that time again. New year just passed and yet we have another celebration. Valentine is coming, so don’t forget your loved ones! Ask Crealotte to create a special card for him or her. Show your loved one that you think about him or her all the time…

Valentine card - Loads of love by Crealotte DesignThis is a card for which I made a custom embossing folder. I did not have any embossing folder with hearts on it, so I decided to make one out of cardboard. I like the feeling of being able to create whatever I want with just my hands, glue and paper (and a couple of tools of course…). Once the embossing folder was made, the rest of the card came quickly. I colored the truck with my copics markers and used one of my border punches to add a delicate touch.

So, I am off again, don’t forget to order your cards and reserve a dinner table in time for Valentine!

Happy new year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!

Crealotte wishes you a Happy new year 2015

May this new year be full of happy moments with your family and friends. Don’t forget to be crafty too!!!



Merry Christmas doctor!


Today I have for you, a card made specially for a doctor. We often forget that many of them or on duty during Christmas, let’s have a special thought for them!IMG_8771This card came together quiet quickly. I used some Christmas themed DSP which I found in my stash, together with this Doctor image. I coloured it in with my copics (Oh I love those markers!!!). Hope you like today’s card… Have a nice Christmas preparation time!

Christmas pokket card: perfect as gift card holder

In the rush for Christmas? Still some last presents to get? Or worse, some ideas to find?! Do you know the feeling of not knowing what to give? Why not think about a gift card for Macy’s or any other big store? … You don’t like to give something so a-personal? … Me neither, so I propose you just put your gift in a handmade gift card holder!

This card holder has some space to write a personal message on the inside and has a pocket to put your gift card or a bit of money. Once closed, the card is a nice present to give to anyone you like!

Wedding card – Wedding rings with all the bling…

Wedding card - wedding wishes - handmade card by Crealotte Design


Today, I have another wedding card for you. This one was intended for a couple of friends whom just entered the love boat together. This card had to come quickly as I was (as always) a little late and I didn’t have much time left before the wedding. Although I made it very quickly, I like the result. The vellum creates this soft look and I made these two rings out of glitter paper and some pearls. Wedding card - wedding wishes by Crealotte DesignI got the stamp on eBay, so I can’t tell you from which company it is, sorry… I finalized the card by adding a pierced square around the main panel, I believe this adds to the sophisticated look.

Hope you liked it!

Minion card – Despicable me themed card

OK, this is gonna be a short post, but I thought that this little minion just talks for himself… Don’t you hear him giggling? I found the idea on pinterest (click on the link and find the minion and many other inspirations on my boards) and I just had to make one myself too. Minion card by Crealotte Design

I am off to do some more making… See ya!!


ssss one year already! – Serpent card

Eloha! I am back again with this card I made for the first birthday of Guillaume. He turned one and is born in the year of the Chinese serpent. It was my task to get all this info in one card. I found this serpent image and adapted it using inkscape. That’s a wonderful computer program, perfect to make and adapt drawings. And it is free! ssss one year already! - Serpent card - By Crealotte DesignI printed and colored the image using my Copics markers. I didn’t have the exact same colors as the cardstock, but I like that the green kind of pops out. For the text I used a Disney font. The card is pretty simple, so I decided to put the picture in a recessed window in order to create some volume. I like how it turned out! Hope you like it too… Any questions? Shoot and I’ll be happy to answer!

I’m five LEGO card

Hi everyone,

Today I have a LEGO themed card for you. I made this one for a little boy whom just turned 5. They grow so fast isn’t it? I chose this theme because when I think of little boys, it is the first toy that comes in mind together with little cars. Don’t get me wrong, I do not restrict LEGO to boys, I too have always loved LEGO and played with it for many years (and still love “helping” little ones to build their creations!).

I'm five LEGO card by Crealotte Design As you can see in the picture, I raised the LEGO “buttons” on 3d foam and added a bit of faux reflection using a gel pen. I have seen this kind of cards many times on pinterest, and I wanted to give it a try myself…

I'm five LEGO card by Crealotte DesignOn the inside I added an extra LEGO head to stay within the theme.

I'm five LEGO card by Crealotte DesignI liked making this card and it came quickly together too. Don’t you think this card would be the perfect along with a LEGO present or as an announcement for taking the child to legoland…? Hope you like it!

Wedding whishes butterflies

Today’s card is one I made for friends that just entered into married life. This simple wedding card came together very quickly and it does not involve much stamping. I used the honeycomb embossing folder from Stampin’up and folded some butterflies. I found this way of making butterflies by accident one day and I find myself reaching for it quiet often since. I Finished of by matting the stamped sentiment and layering the honeycomb on some very vanilla cardstock to make them pop.

I think it is a very easy card with a WOW effect. Just perfect for a wedding! Maybe I should add some bling next time… Don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!

Tuut tuut, firetruck birthday card on the way!

Firetruck birthday card by Crealotte

Don’t you hear the sirens already?  I made this firetruck birthday card for the nephew of a colleague of mine. He just turned 4 and loves all kids of trucks, police cars, ambulances etc. So I adapted a drawing of a fire truck I found on the internet and coloured it in with my copic markers. I had little firetruck stamps from Aladine, stamped them with versamark and heat embossed them with white. The card shape was made with the circle card die from stampin’up. As you maybe see (although I didn’t make a picture of that), the flap containing the sentiments can be folded open in order to write a message inside.
