Party With Cake

Party with Cake 01

Party with Cake?  Is there any other way to party?  This is my take on a card on page 6 of the Occasions mini.  The front uses the new Party with Cake set and the Lots of Labels Framelits.

And the inside uses the Party Pop Up Thinlits die.  To easily attach the letters to the die, I just ran them through my Xyron and made them into sticker.  The pop up only has one fold so it’s easy to make.  Have I said “easy” enough?  Hugs, Fran

Creative Circle February Hop – Hearts


Welcome to February’s Creative Circle Blog Hop.  This month is all about hearts.    Groovy Kind of Love 01

I chose Groovy Love and Hello Life stamp sets with the new Watermelon Wonder ribbon for my card.  The background is the Happy Hearts embossing folder.  This is a cute Valentine – but can also be used for any other occasion.

Make sure to check out the rest of the Creative Circle – and find more ways to use hearts!  Hugs, Fran

Cupid’s Bow

SVG Cupid Arrow

Valentine’s Day!  This Cupids bow is from and is a decorating piece.  I think I’m going to hanging it in my wreath.  It’s large – about 7 x7  – and very sturdy.  I made a change to the assembly and instead of using a dowel rod for the arrow, I used a cute Valentine’s straw.  Hugs, Fran

Quick Valentine Treats

Bear Hugs 01

Need a quick Valentine treat?  Use the Bear Hugs, stamp set found on page 40 in the Occasions Mini catalog.  Stamp the big bear in Chocolate Chip ink on Crumb Cake card stock.  Die cut the bear, flip him over and stamp him again.  Stamp the heart in Real Red ink on Real Red card stock and die cut.  Fill a skinny cello bag with treats, swipe a bit of adhesive across the bear’s chest and stick the cello bag down.

Bear Hugs, 01 detail

Gently curl the bear’s arms around the bag and use glue dots to attach the heart between his paws.  Hand them out and watch people smile ! Hugs, Fran

Party Pop Up

Party Pop Up 01

Another catalog case using the new Party Pop Up dies.  These easy to use dies make your cards hold a fun surprise.  I used the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has 48 sheets of cute designs!  That’s a lot of paper :)

Inside is the other die – popping out to celebrate.  That’s a fun card!  Hugs, Fran

Over the Rainbow

Over the Rainbow 01

First – I apologize for the terrible photo.  It is so hard to take a picture of white cards and I need to change my background.  Having said that, this is Over the Rainbow from the annual catalog.  Cute!  Simple coloring and a fun card.  Do you know the rainbow song?  (red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue.  I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too.)  Those are the colors on this card :)  I tried to explain this to a friend, and she just looked at me like I’d lost my mind.  Do you know this song?  Hugs, Fran

Coffee Charm

PIU Charm Pull 01

Coffee is charming!  This Pop It Ups Hanging Charm Pull Card by Karen Burniston features the coffee cup charm.

PIU Charm Pull 01 open

When pulled up it says “Coffee solves everything” which is my motto in life :)  This one is a postcard style and your message can be written on the back.  Love this die !  Hugs, Fran

Beautiful Ride

Beautiful Ride 01

This is my take on the Beautiful Ride card shown on page 15 in the Occasions Catalog. I used Pacific Point and Pool Party. (I believe the sample is Bermuda Bay and Pool Party – but hey!) I stamped the car in Pacific Point on Pool Party yardstick and added some color using a blender pen.  The suitcases were colored with Stampin Write Markers, fussy cut and adhered to the top of the card.  Hugs, Fran
