Amazing Rocky

PIU Rocky the Crab 02

Guess what I watched last night?  The opening ceremonies of the Olympics!  And it inspired me to make this card.  Whoever was the first person to figure out how to make the flag using the Swirly Bird dies is a genius and I salute you!  I used it for the front of my patriotic card.

Inside I used Karen Burniston’s Cake Pop It Up die to make a platform for Rocky – who has clearly won the gold!  The bottom of the stand is just covered with a piece of Real Red. The sentiment is from Banners for You with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

The Olympic circles are and medal are punches and circle dies.  (The punch for the circles is the 1 1/4″ with a circle die to the outside.)  Doesn’t he look happy to win!  Hugs, Fran

Artsy Swirls

Swirly Bird 07

Fun, messy times in the craft room!  I used a piece of watercolor paper for this Swirly Bird card and stamped it in Peek a boo Peach, Blushing Bride, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum.  Then I watercolored all over the piece to soften and blend the colors.  Splatter the colors over the finish piece and once it dries (important – let it dry!) I stamped the sentiment in Stazon and some more swirls in Stazon and Tangerine Tango.  I also added some die cut swirls.   To finish it off, I added the washi tape (told you I was using it!) to the side.

And sequins – always add sequins!  Hugs, Fran

Hello Swirls

Swirly Bird 06

You’ve probably seen this design all over the place – cause it’s cute! 🙂  This uses more of the Swirly Bird stamp set and die and this time I inset the die pieces.  By using the positive piece I was able to quickly place the negative pieces.  I used the Hello You Thinlit  covered in Crystal Effects for the Hello and Crazy about You to finish it off.  And sequins – lots of sequins!  Some things just need to be repeated.  Hugs, Fran

Peek a boo Thanks

Swirly Bird 05

Swirly Bird Thanks!  I used the Swirly Bird stamp set (again) to make some background paper in Peek a boo Peach and added some swirly roses in Peek a boo Peach and Calypso Coral.  The “Thanks” is the Hello You Thinlits die cut in Peek a boo Peach and covered with Crystal Effect. I just snipped off the “s” and added the “you” from Crazy About You in Calypso Coral.  Hugs, Fran
