Avant Garden Blue

Here’s a card using Avant Garden that I combined two different cards I saw on Pinterest to create.  One was a sketch and one was these colors and stamps.  I used Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizazz and Soft Sky for the flowers and Daffodil Delight for the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.  I used Wink of Stella on the stamping – just because – and did some background interest with Dazzling Details, some clear elements and candy dots.  The sentiment is from Lift Me Up.  Hugs, Fran

Punched Birthday

I was sorting through some old punches and thought I’d try this card.  It’s a 3 x 8 card and you can make an envelope for it using the Envelope Punch Board. The  colors from left to right are Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Cucumber Crush, Pear Pizazz , Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, and Real Red.  I drew a straight line across the card stock and lined them up.  That’s it!  Now to search through the rest of my punches and see which other ones will work with this style card!  Try it!  Hugs, Fran

Something Pretty

Just going through some of the stuff in my craft room and I came across these stickers from Elizabeth Crafts and thought I’d better use them.  I made the card with Karen Burniston’s Spiral Pull card die and used a retired SU stencil for the background.  I added the dots with a white gel pen and white embossed the sentiment – Love & Affection – on to some black card stock.

Here’s the inside…………and another card!

Same idea – just Calypso Coral for the card stock.

You should be warned that I found a lot of these stickers!  You might see some more designs soon!  Hugs, Fran

Get Well Hero

This pretty Get Well Soon card is made with the My Hero stamp set – which benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  The raindrops are these little plastic thingies that go in the bottom of vases 🙂  These are flat on the back and are easy to use.  The paper is Blooms & Bliss DSP and the card is tied off with some Mint Macaron ribbon.  Hugs, Fran

Moon Baby

Here are two cards using Reverse Words (one of the new SAB offerings) and Moon Baby (Occasion Mini.)

I stamped the baby and fussy cut her out.  The Hooray is stamped in Pink Pirouette and die cut with a stitched rectangle, placed on a Pink Pirouette stitched rectangle and then all put on a background embossed with the Large Polka Dots embossing folder.

And here’s the baby boy version done in Marina Mist.  Hint – if you have trouble fussy cutting the umbrella stick – just cut off the top of the umbrella and then reassemble.  Only a few more days to get Reverse Words!  Hugs, Fran

Serene Dragonfly

I have done something that I hate – no not the card – but I saw this idea somewhere, wrote it down on my grid paper and promptly threw it away.  But this card is based on another one!  I started with Serene Scenery DSP and die cut a square from the middle.  I added a copper foil square behind it and a strip of Whisper white across the card  – and a stamped and embossed strip across the square piece.  Then I cut a copper foil dragonfly and adhered it with Dimensionals.  Isn’t this a great idea for all those pretty papers that you hate to cut up?  Hugs, Fran
