Here Comes the Bride

This card is a case of one of my own ballerina dress cards – altered to work for a bride.  I used Celebrate With Us from the Occasions Mini and a spray of small, silk flowers on the front of the exclusive – and soon to be retired!- Pop Up Card die.

Instead of a tutu, I made a long train of tulle.  You can see it better from the side –

I will sorely miss this die – but it will remain in my “stash” forever  

Stamp Set – Celebrate With Us
Cardstock – Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Pink Pirouette DSP\
Ink – Rose Red
Etc – Dress Form die and framelits, Pink Pirouette ribbon, tulle, pearls, small flowers, Dazzling Details

This was made for a sweet bride -to- be’s shower – who’s big day is tomorrow!  Hugs, Fran

Easter Dress

Feeling very springy today – even if it snows.  This card base is the exclusive SU Pop N Cuts Base and Sweet Sorbet Designer Series paper.  The tag was made with the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  The words are from Blessings From Heaven.  I masked off sections and made the sentiment tighter so that it would fit on the tag. 

And here she is with her Easter Eggs.  The eggs were done with the small oval punch.  I punched them and then put them on a sticky note back into the punch so they would have a more “egg” shape. 

Stamp Sets – Blessings From Heaven, Petal Parade
Card stock – Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sorbet DSP
Ink – Jet Black Stazon, Crisp Cantaloupe
Etc – SU Pop N Cuts base and Dress Form insert, small and medium oval punches, Oval Framelits, Pistachio Pudding ribbon, pearls, Scallop Tag Topper punch, Doilie tape, Itty Bitty Shapes punch

The photo quality isn’t great – sorry.  The Crisp Cantaloupe seemed to “glow” while I was taking pictures.  Hugs, Fran

Beautiful Butterflies

More Pop It Up Butterfly Pivot meeting Venetian Romance Designer Series paper!  That just go together   The base of this card is Karen Burniston’s Square Pop N Cuts base with edge and then I used her new Butterfly Pivot for the insert.  The sentiment is from Four You, stamped in Soft Suede.  The accents on the butterfly are Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede.

The butterfly on the front pivots to the inside!  All the beautiful accents, little butterflies and flowers are included with the pivot – just add Venetian Romance DSP.

Stamp Set – Four You
Card stock – Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Suede, Venetian Romance DSP
Ink – Soft Sues
Etc – Pop It Butterfly Pivot, Square Base and edge

If you missed the other Butterfly and Venetian Romance card, you can find it here.  Hugs, Fran

Birthday Pop

Another Great Year 02














Here’s another card featuring Another Great Year on the front and using the same technique that I showed you here to do the banners.  The only difference is that I colored the “loops” before I added the Dazzling Details.  The card base is the SU exclusive Pop N cuts base die with Birthday Basic Designer Series paper. There are lots of fun prints in this one!

Another Great Year 02 inside














Inside I used Karen Burniston’s new Pop It Up die – which work perfectly inside any size card – called Lots of Pop.  The owl is the owl punch (!) and the presents on the floor are just square punches.  They are mainly there to hold up the balloons because they are on wires.

Another Great Year 02detail












“Happy” is from Countless Sayings II – a photopolymer stamp set.  I’m eating my words on these photopolymer stamps.  They are fun to use.  Change – it takes me a while

Another Great Year 02 side
















Here you can see the “innards” of the card.

Stamp Sets – Another Great Year, Countess Sayings II
Card stock – Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Island Indigo, Birthday Basics DSP

Now to clean up the mess around me – and maybe try to stick to one stamp set at a time for a while.  Maybe.  Hugs, Fran

Hello Sailor

Love this new Designer Series paper from the Occasions Mini – High Tide – and the stamp set Hello Sailor that goes with it!
I used my SU exclusive Pop Up base to make this card!

The image is die cut using the Deco Label Framelits – and the little banner is really the new banner punch (coming for SAB!)

She’s a sailor girl looking for her man   I used my Pop Up Dress insert and followed the color scheme in the DSP.  So yes, it really is Calypso Coral instead of Red!

To make the dress, I die cut it in Pacific Point, Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Pacific Point DSP and just layered the pieces so that they would show on the bottom.  I did hand cut the collar – but once you have the white piece the way you want it, just adhere the next color and trim away.  I used the Word Bubble Framelits to make the talk bubble.  The hat is hand cut front with a circle behind it.

The sentiment on the bottom is from Best of Love – it’s a good one to have!

Stamp Sets – Hello, Sailor, Best of Love
Card Stock – Pacific Point, Whisper White, Calypso Coral, High Tide DSP
Ink – Pacific Point
Etc – Pop N Cuts Base and Dress Form insert, Deco Label and Word Bubble Framelits, gold brads, banner punch, Baker’s Twine

Got my baby off to England, finally!  That made for an eventful week – glad it’s the weekend!  Hope you have a wonderful day!  Hugs, Fran

After Christmas Pick Me Up

Let the clean up begin!  Or not.  This little card is for a friend that happens to be in town for the holidays.  The front is a dead Christmas tree and lots of wrapping on the floor   The tree is an Elizabeth Craft die, the card base is the SU Pop N Cuts base and the packages are a 1″ punch. 

To do the tissue paper, I punched some 1″ squares and wadded the paper up – and glued it down.  See the poor star nestled in the mess? 

When the card is opened out pops Karen Burniston’s Mug & Heart insert (which fits beautifully inside the SU Pop N Cuts base.)  I also used her Gift Card holder  and Banner & Borders framelits.  Use your imagination to see the Starbucks gift card inside the holder! 

The steam in the cup and the hearts on the front are Movers and Shapers dies and the center of the hearts is a Neutral Candy Dot. 

I only adhered the tag at the bottom so that the gift card is removal without tearing up the tag.  I printed all the sentiments in MDS2. 

Stamp Set – Woodgrain background
Card stock – Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Season of Style DSP
Dies – exclusive SU Pop N Cuts base, Mug & Hearts insert, Banners & Borders framelit, Gift Card Holder framelit, Hearts Mover and Shapers, Elizabeth Craft Design 5 part Christmas Tree framelit
Etc – Neutral Candy dots, 1″ square punch, tissue paper, Itty Bitty ornament punch and small star, gold gel pen

So now I have to go to Starbucks to get that gift card – ha!  This is a two-way gift!  Hugs, Fran

Sparkling Deco Christmas Pop (N Cuts)

Lots of sparkle going on over here!  This Christmas card features the exclusive SU Pop N Cuts Base and Deco label dies (both by Karen Burniston)  and the beautiful Modern Medley Designer Series paper. On the front I stamped part of one of the sentiments from Delightful Dozen in Versamark and embossed it in gold.  It’s die cut using the Deco label die and layered on Silver Glimmer paper.  The stars on the bottom are punched using the small star punch and the larger star is from the Star #2 die. 

The Deco Labels and the larger star are popped up (’cause it’s a pop-up card!)

The Deco Label insert and lots of different sparkle inside! 

The top sentiment is the other part of the Delight Dozen sentiment of the front.  It’s stamped in Versamark and embossed in gold.  I die cut it out using Sizzix’s Banner & Boarders designed by Karen.  It is backed on Silver Glimmer paper.

The champagne flutes are from Easy Embellishments.  I stamped them on a 4″ circle of window sheet using a Glue pad and covered them in Gold Glitter.  Then I went around the circle with small stars in Silver and Champagne Glimmer paper.  The 2014 is die cut using the Timeless Type dies and they are popped up on the window sheet.  The window sheet is glued to the Deco Labels behind it just underneath the numbers.

Can you see it? 

The bottom sentiment is from More Many Messages and is again embossed in gold and accented with more stars.  I find it easiest to adhere Glimmer Paper with glue. 

Stamp Sets – Delightful Dozen, More Merry Messages
Card stock – Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Silver and Champagne Glimmer papers
Ink – Versamark
Dies – SU Pop N Cuts Base and Deco Label insert and dies, Sizzix Banner & Borders, Star #2, Clear Circle die, Timeless Type
Etc – small heart punch, window sheet, Gold Glitter, Glue pad

What a glittery way to send your Best Wishes!  Hugs, Fran

I (heart) Santa

This card starts with a Cherry Cobbler exclusive SU Pop N Cuts base embossed with the Sassy and Circle Label embossing folder by Sizzix.  I added some wide Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Silver ribbon under a Silver Glimmer paper die cut from the Sassy Label & Stitched Frames Framelit.

If you look closely you can see the Stitched accent I added on the front.  The final element is a tag from Tag 4 You stamped in Old Olive and punched out with the matching punch. 

And the inside!  I used Karen Burniston’s House insert and matching framelit, her Ribbon Tree die and Banner & Borders Framelit, Season of Style Designer Series paper and the “mini Frosty” from Best of Snow to create this little scene.  The sentiment is from the November My Paper Pumpkin

I needed the tree to be taller so I cut two of them and pieced them together.  They are accented with Silver Glimmer paper.  The lights on the house are Basic Rhinestones colored with Copic Markers.  The house is accented with Dazzling Details and the heart on the door is coated with Crystal Effects.  I also added some tiny snowflakes on a few of the dots in the background paper.  (yes, my desk was covered with stuff!)

Oh – and the tree was topped with using the Tiny Heart punch in Red Glimmer paper. 

To keep the tall tree from flopping around, I added an extra support to the back.

Frosty was stamped in Jet Black Stazon and colored with Stampin Write Markers.  To make the sign, I adhered some Season of Style Washi tape to Whisper White cardstock and cut the tiniest strip – to look like a candy cane.  The sign is from Very Merry Tags – stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched out with matching punch.  The doorknob is a Candy Dot.

The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and die cut using the Sizzix Banner & Border Framelit. 

Stamp Sets – Best of Snow, Very Merry Tags, Tags 4 You, November Paper Pumpkin
Card stock – Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Season of Style DSP
Ink – Cherry Cobbler, Jet Black Stazon
Etc – SU exclusive Pop N Cuts Base, Karen Burniston’s house insert, Banner & Border framelit, Ribbon Tree, Sassy Label Stitched Framelit and embossing folder, Label Bracket punch, Petite Curly Label punch, Basic Rhinestones, Season of Style Washi tape, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Details, Regal Candy Dots

I think I might love this little Frosty even more than his original counterpart!  Hugs, Fran

Clearly Winter Wishes

This picture is something of an optical illusion – there really is no bend in the card but the light makes it look that way!  This is the exclusive SU Pop N Cuts base, the Warmth & Wishes stamp set, and Winter Frost Designer Series paper.  I also added some of the foil card stock – and this card really shines!

On the inside I used Karen Burniston’s new Multi- Tier insert cut out of acetate.  The Winter Frost DSP had a beautiful design on the flip side and I didn’t want to cover it.  I cut the acetate with the insert, stamped it using White Stazon and let the design shine through. I also added some rhinestones to the some of the snowflakes. 


I stamped the trees in Versamark and embossed them with silver embossing powder. 

Here you can see the mechanics of the card.  Love how the trees float! 

Stamp Set – Warmth & Wishes
Card stock – Whisper White, Silver Foil, Winter Frost
Ink – Versamark, Coastal Cabana, Soft Suede
