Perfect Mix Birthday

Here’s a very simple card for you!  I used Perfect Mix from the Occasions catalog to make this birthday card.  I stamped the mixer twice – once on Pacific Pint and once on the Whisper White and then fussy cut the blue one and popped it up over the sentiment.  I went over the lines on the mixer with a silver gel pen.  The background patterned paper is from Party Animals DSP.  Hugs, Fran

Stylized Birthday

Totally inspired by a Jennifer McGuire card, these feature the Stylized Birthday stamp set.

For this one I stamped the background using Paisleys & Posies stamp set in Versamark and then sponged ink over it.  (Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight)  The sentiment was stamped on a stitched Framelit and the top Paisley stamped above it.  Little enamel dots and Dazzling Details were added.

This was done the same way using Garden in Bloom with Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi.  Very fun to make!  Hugs, Fran

Sunburst Thanks

Bright and sunny!  For this card I used the retired SU sunburst stencil and sponged it in Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is stamped on both the Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight circles and then matched up.

The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and is stamped in Versafine Onux Black and heat embossed in clear. Then I got out my Wind of Stella pen and just went crazy – seriously – maybe a bit too crazy!  And sequins (again.)  Well, if nothing else, it sparkles!  Hugs, Fran

Nailed It

One more in this style – Nailed It.  I used the Serene Scenery DSP for the card, stamped and die cut the hammer and popped it up on the panel.  Funny how this was my least favorite of this style card and one of my daughter’s favorite!  The Congrats was stamped on the inside.  Always great to have some more masculine cards around.  Hugs, Fran

Lift Me Up Birthday

I’ve been doing a lot of this style card recently!  This time I used Lift Me Up to create a birthday card.  The balloon and clouds are die cut with the matching framelits and the Salebration paper Carried Away was used for the card.  (Actually the dots behind the ballon are Mint Macaron from the In Colors paper pack). The clouds are stamped in Smoky Slate and the balloon in Night of Navy.  Hugs, Fran

Bunch of Blossoms in Blue

This set is called Bunch of Blossoms and it’s a three step stamp set that makes beautiful flowers.  I used Marina Mist and Soft Sky to stamp the flowers and Old Olive on the stems and leaves. There is a matching punch for the flowers.

The flowers are popped up on Dimensionals and the ends of flowers (where they meet the stems) are held down with glue dots.  A gentle curl with my bone folder gives them lots of dimension.  Then I added sequins and dots of Dazzling Details and gold jelly roll pen dots 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Make a Medallion

Make a Medallion is another stamp set you can choose as a Salebration freebie starting tomorrow.  For this card I stamped it multiple times in Versamark on Whisper White and then heat embossed it white embossing powder.  (You could also use clear)  Sponge on Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party from bottom to top and add a sentiment strip from One Big Meaning.  Add a little bit of 3/8 Metallic Ribbon and some sequins and mount on some Heavy White card stock.  Hugs, Fran

Super Reverse Words

One more Reverse Word – this time pairing it with Everyday Hero.  The balloon is from Confetti Celebrations.  I stamped the superman, colored with Copics and fussy cut him out.  The bottom of the card is stamped (with a mask) over and over and a few of the buildings were quickly colored with some W Copics and little stars stamped in Smoky Slate.  The balloon is covered with Crystal Effects.  Perfect masculine birthday card!  Hugs, Fran

Reverse Words in the Air

So after I did party balloons with the Reverse Word set, I decided to do hot air balloons. The balloon is die cut using the Up & Away Thinlits and the background paper is the Salebration paper Carried Away.  The Reverse Words is stamped in Mint Macaron.  I’m sure you can create a prettier hot air balloon!  Hugs, Fran

Straightening Up Reverse Words

Does it feel like Deja vu?  This is the same card from yesterday – just straightened up and popped up.  This time I fussy cut the balloons (there is a punch for balloons – I just forgot!) and used the die for the ribbons.  Then the balloons are popped up with Dimensionals.  Now you decide!  This one –

or this one –

Hugs, Fran
