These little treat boxes hold Tootsie Roll Lollipops and are super quick and easy to make. They really are wraps for the candy.
To make the wrappers cut a piece of Real Red to 2 1/4 x 7 1/2. Score the 7 1/2 side at 2 1/2, 4 and 6 1/2. Attach a 2 x 2 1/4 piece of the Sending Love DSP to the end of the Real Red paper and adhere the flap end over to close the wrapper. Use a hole punch to add a hold for the sucker and then add a 2 x 3/4 stamped piece (or you could use more patterned paper) to the flap. Insert you sucker and tie the top with a Real Red Sending Love ribbon bow. Add a heart from the Love Notes Framelit die and embellish with a rhinestone. I added a bit of glue under the rhinestone just to make sure it stays put. Hugs, Fran
This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card full of LOVE. Using the Largest Letters Framelits, I cut them out of the Real Red strip and then replaced them with white letters stamped with the line of hearts from Sealed with Love. The “In the Air” is embossed with white embossing powder. The heart border is made using the Love Notes Framelit dies. I cut a sliver of silver Glimmer paper to run through the middle of the hearts. Hugs, Fran
Live, Laugh, Love – it’s almost Valentine Day! This sampler uses all kinds of hearts and stamps to create a keepsake for someone special of for YOU! Each square is the largest stitched frame die. I’ll try to list all the products I used below. Hugs, Fran
Monster hugs! This little monster from Yummy in My Tummy is holding a string of Valentines and is on an action wobbler (like this monster) to greet you. The sentiment is from Falling for You. It’s hard to see, but background is the Falling Petals embossing folder. Hugs, Fran
Valentines! Yes, it’s time to start thinking about them. Using the new Sealed with Love, I created a special Valentine. On the front I used the new Sending Love Designer Series paper, Sealed with Love stamp set and the Sweet & Sassy heart dies. The heart behind the sentiment is cut from Glimmer paper.
Inside I made a heart pop up! Following Karen Burniston’s directions for a Twist Circle Panel Card, I changed the panel to hearts. All you need is 4 hearts that are approximately 3 inches tall. I adhered them together so they measure 9″ long and scored at the same measurements in the video. The “i love” was die cut from Sunshine Wishes and the “you” is from Hello You thinlits. The glimmer hearts are from my stash. I hope you’ll try it! Hugs, Fran
Here’s my version of the Salebration set Hey Chick. I used inks and an aqua painter to color the hens and Serene Scenery Designer Series paper for the card. Lots of fun! Hugs, Fran
This Rocking Horse is from Little Cuties and is colored with the new Watercolor pencils. I used the Lots of Labels framelits and some buttons from my stash to finish it up. The pencils are wonderful! Hugs, Fran
Do you ever buy a set because of one or two images? Yep, that’s why I bought Little Cuties! The kitten and puppy are so sweet I just had to have it! Colored with Copics, I used these two together to make a simple card. I stamped the puppy and put a mask over him so I could stamp the kitten behind him. I also masked off part of the sentiment. The balloons are from Bella & Friends. Hugs, Fran
This new set is Builder Birdcage and it comes with lots of pieces to create all sorts of birdcage scenes. For this first card I just made a basic cage with one little bird. The paper is Sweet Sugarplum and the Sweet Sugarplum Designer Series paper. To make the chain that holds the perch fit on the cage, I used a post it note to cover the top of cage (the chain is long) Hugs, Fran
Splashes of color make this gal look like she’s dancing in the sunshine. I splashed the color on Shimmery White card stock – drying it between each color – and then stamped the Beautiful You girl in Stazon. The little splatters are from Avant Garden. Colors used are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tangerine Tango.
For this card, I did the same technique using Pool Party, Island Indigo and Soft Sky. The splatter is done in Soft Sky. It’s addicting! Hugs, Fran
