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…

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.

Little girl’s pocket card

handmade pocket card by Crealotte DesignLast week I showed you a card I made for a customer featuring the zodiac sign and ascendancy of a newborn baby. Today, I have another card featuring both these signs, but this time it is for a two year old girl. As I thought it would not be so funny for a little girl to have “adult” symbols on her card, I decided to make a girly pocket card and to put the signs on the inside. This way, both the adults and the girl would get something they liked.IMG_8706I like the little folded ribbon on the top which keeps the pocket closed! What do you like about this card? Have a nice day!

Fotoshoot gift card with motion lens

Today I share with you a custom card I made for someone who will receive a fotoshoot as birthday gift. I had to make a kind of gift card where the surprise read “Good for a photoshoot with Bernard delhalle photography”. I thus made this envelope card with a big camera inside from which the lens could be moved to the left and the text would appear. I like the idea of “hiding” info on cards or scrapbook pages! personalized card for fotoshoot - by Crealotte DesignHope you like today’s card and don’t hesitate to leave me your idea’s on how you would have done it…

Honeycomb thank you card

Today I have a very quick thank you card. This one came together very quickly as I used some assorted scraps and the hexagon punch. The background in embossed with the honeycomb texture plate.

I added some faux stitching just to finish off certain tiles and I put the thank you note on dimensional adhesive to make it come out. The stamp was inked with markers instead of an inkpad in order to be able to switch colours between the words in the middle and the hexagone dots on the outside.

I hope this easy card gets you inspired to make some quick cards yourself…

New baby card: Hanging baby clothes

Today I have another baby card for you. I made this one for some friends who just got their second child.

New baby card by crealotte DesignThe background of this new baby card is embossed with little clouds and I added two clouds made with the cupcake punch from Stampin’up. The clothes are made with the owl builder punch. I like to use my punches in a different way than the one they were initially intended to, it allows for so much more creativity…

Hope you liked it!

Flowers all around

Hello everyone! Today I’m here with lots of flowers! This card was meant as a thank you note for someone active in horticulture. I stamped the background with the wood grain stamps and stamped flower pots in every cube. I thought this card looked like sunshine, don’t you think? I hope the person will like his handmade card!

How to use of vellum on a card?

This card was made for baby Anthony. I wanted something simple but at the same time different from what I usually make. I thus decided to use vellum on this one. Vellum gives a soft touch to the card, perfect for a newborn baby card. As you know, vellum is semi translucent. This means that also the glue can be seen through. I therefore used some brads on both top and bottom of the card and added some glue behind the center piece, to keep everything in place.

I decided to make this card completely cream and blue to keep the classic baby colours. As this card was meant as baptism card, I did not use a standard baby stamp, but added this little bird as sign of peace between earth and heaven.

Hope you liked this week’s card. Have a nice day!
