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…

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…

Hi stampers,

I am back for a paper player challenge this week. At first I found the recipe challenge quiet difficult, but I think I got it: 3 kinds of patterned paper, 2 kinds of ribbon, 1 punch and a bit of bling (difficult to see, but it is there!) … I used a sketch from “just us girls” and  a color combo from “Lily pad challenges“. This is what I came up with:

Hi everyone,

Today a very quick post. The card I share today is a card I made this week for a 50th birthday. It took me quiet some thinking before my fingers wanted to make this one, but I finally managed to get it done. Getting the letters in a nice circle resulted in a lot of frustration, I can tell you I was happy when those finally got stamped!!! The central scalloped circle and numbers were made using my cricut. Hope you like it!


See ya later…
