Best Thoughts

Best Thoughts 01


Another beautiful hostess set coming your way – Best Thoughts!  LOVE the font!  I stamped this in Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush on watercolor paper and then used my aqua painter (and a little bit more ink) to do a fast wash of color.  I added lots of splatters, rhinestones and some sequins too.  The background in Hardwood.  A little piece of paper doily and some new, soft, yummy ribbon and it’s ready to send. This will be another favorite set of mine :)  Hugs, Fran

I Think You're Great 02


New catalog Open House!  Today we will be playing with some new product, chatting, eating – and stamping, of course!  This is one of the cards we will be making with the new set, I Think You’re Great, new washi tape, new paper – fun!  This card is made with the notecards and matching envelopes.  I love how nicely these notecards go together.

Ink and Paper

Work of Art 03


And a few rhinestones :)  Today I did a card using only the new In Colors and the stamp set, Work of Art and Perfect Pennants.   Love when a card comes together so quickly!  You’re going to love these new In Colors!  Hugs, Fran

Another Bravo Bag

Bravo 04

Here’s another gift bag made with the new Gift Bag Punch Board and the Bravo stamp set.  This bag is tall (large score line, 12 x 12) and uses the retiring Back to Black DSP with some Glimmer paper.  The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo.  The large banner is made with the Banner Framelits – the small was just snipped.   There is a new black and white DSP coming, but I”m going to miss this one!  Just a few days left until the new catty!!  Hugs, Fran

Party Bag

Bravo 03

There’s a new Punch Board – Gift Bags!  It makes all kinds of cute bags for gift giving.  This on uses the new Bohemian Designer Series paper and the stamp set Bravo.  The colors in this DSP are Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla.  I opted to use a tie in the middle (tied with Blackberry Bliss ribbon – retiring!)   This board is easy to use (yea!) and makes lots of different sizes.  Coming VERY SOON!  Hugs, Fran

You’ve Got This

You've Got This 01

Cuteness case from Carrie Cudney!  (Say that three times fast!)  These notecard sized cards not only show off the beautiful new In Colors, but also a wonderful new stamp set called You’ve Got This.  This is going to be a favorite of mine – simple and pretty.  Little bits of In Color ribbon and some Baker’s Twine finish off the cards and don’t forget the matching envelopes made with the new Envelope paper!  Sweet!  Hugs, Fran

Congrats from Cheepers

PIU Cheepers 02

Running late today, but I wanted to share “Cheepers” and her Pop It Ups Rectangular Pull Card.  On the outside I used Karen Burniston’s Farm Greetings Clear Stamps and Cheepers, along with a Stampin Up Star Framelit.

PIU Cheepers 02 open

Inside is the double of Cheepers and Itty Bitty Banners on the Pop up part.  Fun – and useful this time of year!  Hugs, Fran

Out on a Limb

Sprinkles of Life 04

Wow – the photo is kind of off kilter!  (Oh well – not my favorite card of the bunch)  This is a notecard with the new Bohemian Designer Series paper and Sprinkle of Life stamp set.  I wanted to use the branch and bird so I cased another of Sara Gardner’s cards.  I used different paper and it really changes the feel of the card.  Maybe if we all tilt our heads to the left it will work better :)  Hugs, Fran


Available June 2nd

Amazing Birthday Hamburger Box

Amazing Birthday 04

This Hamburger Box die is made using the Irresistible DSP that was available in the SAB catalog – and it’s “cousin” is making it’s debut in the new catalog!  I decided to brayer the paper in the new In Color – Delightful Dijon.  I actually love this new color!  It’s a deep mustard (think More Mustard) and is a nice compliment to the other yellows in the color families.  Here I paired it with Bermuda Bay – Amazing Birthday stamp set – and some strips of card stock to look like ribbon.  They are glued to the box so that it opens without any fuss.  The bow at the top is 4 Bow Builder punches just stacked on top of each other with a Paper Doily underneath,  I topped it all off with a pearl.  This started out as a case of a project in the New Catalog – with a few turns along the way :)  Hugs, Fran
