This week’s challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges is Back to School which always makes me think, red, white and blue and Labor Day. This image is a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl. The stars in the background are made using Stamping Up’s Oh My Stars embossing folder. The image was colored with Copic markers.
On the inside I used Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die (again, yes I know!) and her wonderful Words 2, Birthday Die Set. The little stars are attached to fishing line so it shakes when opened. I also used Karen Burniston’s Nature Edges dies for the bottom of the area where you write your greeting. Enjoy celebrating and I hope you’ll join in this challenge! Hugs, Fran

Today’s challenge at Crazy 4 Challenge is a sketch challenge! I used Stamping Up’s Tranquil Tulips on the front. This card is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/4. And here is the sketch –
And when you open the card……
I used Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die, opening at a different angle (!) with a butterfly. You can do anything with this die 🙂 Join the challenge this week by using the sketch for inspiration! Hugs, Fran

This challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges is a Monochromatic Challenge. I chose yellow with black as my accent color. The background on the front of the card is done with a stencil and shimmer spray. The sentiment and diet are from Stamping Up’s Sunshine Sayings and matching die, Sunshine Wishes. I added rhinestones and metallic stars and a scallop boarder from the Colorful Seasons die.
Inside I used Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die to create the sun popping up! I added sunglass from SU’s Pocketful of Sunshine die and lot of shimmer 🙂 I repeated some of the accents from the front on the inside. This is such a fun challenge and I hope you’ll play along! Hugs, Fran
The challenge this month is Summer Road Trip and I’m taking a motorcycle 🙂 This set is called One Wild Ride and I used some retired DSP to make a Joy Fold card with a surprise inside. The image and sentiment are embossed on the DSP and the little sign is popped up to hold the card shut.
On the inside is Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle pop up die! It pops up the badge that is also embossed, this time in white.
So I’m hitting the road with my Twist Circle die! Check out the other Summer Road Trip ideas. Hugs, Fran
