Snowman Nuggets

There is a cute video by Linda Bauwin showing how to make these nugget snowmen.  They use Snow Day and the fingers from children/women’s gloves.  I put them in a cello bag with a Top Note topper and my favorite sentiment from Christmas Messages.  It was from this idea that my mind wandered to the idea I showed yesterday – how to use the rest of the glove!

I guess I really showed these backwards   But now you know how to use the entire glove.

Really Good Greetings Pop

It’s the Soho Subway Designer Series paper again   I used the exclusive Stampin Up Pop N Cuts base for the card and the Apothecary Art Framelits to make the tag.  The border is That’s the Ticket and the Ticket punch.

For the insert I used the suitcase from Sizzix’s Journey collection.  I stamped with Beyond Plaid (last day to get this stamp!!) and added some Vintage Trinkets. 

I used Early Espresso Core dinations paper and sanded it for the details.  Love how it gives the look of worn leather. 

The top piece is from the Top Note die.

Goodbye Established Elegance

There are actually 3 of my favorite sets retiring in this card – Established Elegance, Elements of Style and Netting!  Seriously, are they allowed to do this to me?  Oh well – I’m sure I’ll find some new favorites, but I’m really, really going to miss these sets!

Do you have a “Go To” set retiring or something you’re really going to miss?  Tell me I’m not alone!  Hugs, Fran

Goodbye Aviary

I will really miss Aviary!  This was a swap I did (maybe a year ago) for convention (or Leadership!)  The sweet little birds are hanging from a branch made with the Bird Punch. 

It’s hard to see our favorites go – but I know I’ll have new favorites soon!
Stamp Sets – Aviary, Curvy Verses
Card stock – Cherry Cobbler, Old olive, Whisper White
Ink – More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Jet Black Stazon

Off to play with something NEW!  Hugs, Fran

Dahlia Christmas

Love the little Dahlias!  Aren’t they cute as a Christmas tree?

Stamp Set – Tiny Tags
card stock – Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Champagne Glitter paper,  Be of Good Cheer DSP
Stampin Write Markers – Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Etc – Tasteful Trim die, Dahlias, Linen Thread, Top Note die, star punch, Little Label punch

The dahlias can be applied with glue dots.  I used glue so that I would have a little wiggle room in getting them lined up straight.  Use a ruler to line up the bottom row. 

Hugs, Fran

Brace yourself for more versions   Hugs, Fran

Scentsational Quilted Card

Lots and Lots of texture going on here.  I’m not sure if you can see it but I put the squares on the Top Note die, cut it out and ran it through the Big Shot using the Fan embossing folder.  Not to mention that the Early Espresso layer is embossed with the Square Lattice folder, the mug is heat embossed with the yummy Sugar and Spice embossing powder and there are rhinestones.  Overboard!  But I like it. 
Stamp Sets – Scentsational Season, Greetings of the Season
Card stock – Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP
Ink – Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Etc – Fan and Square Lattice embossing folder, Sugar and Spice embossing powder, Top Note Die, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 square punches, hobby blade, rhinestones
Hope you do too!  Hugs, Fran

Layered Labels

This is an easy card using the largest label stamp in Layered Labels.  I stamped the image in Early Espresso and colored it with Pink Pirouette. Then I stamped it Pink Pirouette using an Early Espresso Stampin Write Marker over the “Heartfelt” and cut that out – yes, with scissor!

Stamp Set – Layered Labels
card stock – Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Subtles Pattern Pack
Ink – Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette
Stampin Write Marker – Pink Pirouette
Etc – Large pearls, Top Note die, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

Casing the Catalog 4

Cased from page 47 – It’s a Wrap.  I added the flowers from Betsy’s Blossom (because my white Stazon pad has died a sad death!)  The topper is the Top Note die cut in half and scored to fit over the top.  You can make two from one Top Note while you’re at it!

Stamp sets – It’s a Wrap Occasions, Betsy’s Blossoms
card stock – Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green
Ink – Midnight Muse, Gumball Green
Stampin Write Markers – Midnight Muse, Daffodil Delight
Etc – Big Shot Top Note die, small brown bag (3 x 6″)

This will make a nice gift bag for a summery treat.  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
