This simple card was made using the Stylish Stripes embossing folder on each end of the card stock so that there is an empty spot to decorate in the middle. It was inspired by one on Pinterest done by Kerry Bunting. She used a different EF and stamp set – but the idea is the same. For the Birds would make a cute set of cards using this technique.
I masked off the words, stamped the image and then stamped the words to the side and colored the image with Blendabilities. Hugs, Fran
You’ve seen this one before but yesterday was class 7 in my Blendies classes and this was the sample.. Wow, these ladies have gotten very good with their Blendies! I thought I’d show you 4 more variations on this card.
This rose is Calypso Coral.
This is Melon Mambo.
This was done with Copics and….
This was done in “sepia” tones using Copics.
What a wonderful stamp! Hugs, Fran
When I first saw this stamp set – Perfect Peacock – I knew I would have to order it just so I could sit and color! Very therapeutic 🙂 I colored him up with Copic Markers and used a sentiment from Trust God, punched with the large oval punch, to finish the card. Of course I added some Dazzling Details to the flowers and rhinestones down the side. The tiny flag behind the sentiment is from the Banner Framelits – just a little piece of the smallest banner. Coloring peacocks is actually part of the Animal class at Kit and Clowder (if you want to learn more about coloring!) Copics used – B12, B14, B24, B28, B29, B99, E33, Y15, Y38, YG03 and BG 49. Hugs, Fran
BYOP – Buy Your Own Present! This set is perfect for the front of a gift card enclosure card! I colored the letters with Blendies starting with the darkest color at the bottom of the letters and moving up to the lightest. I even colored the Back to Black Designer Series paper!
Bet you know someone who would like this! Hugs, Fran
I love this Valentine set from the Occasions Mini – Hey Valentine! For this card, I colored the fish with my Blendabilities and used Karen Burniston’s new Rectangular Pull Card for the card. The “wave” edge is her new Beach Edges. The glasses on the yellow fish are filled with Crystal Effects 🙂
As you open the card, there is a mechanism (optional) that pops up so your card becomes even more interactive! Too cute!
The paper is from the Saleabration pack – Best Year Ever. Perfect for water, snow or sky. You need some!! Hugs, Fran
This card is the new Tags Pivot Card from Karen Burniston. I paired it up with Stampin Up’s Love is Kindness in the Occasions Mini. The card base is stamped with the Dictionary background stamp and the image was stamped, colored with Blendabilities and fussy cut. A little Typeset Designer Series paper and some Chevron ribbon finishes off this card.
There is a little, tiny piece of one of the flowers that was added to the front to keep the bouquet full. Hugs, Fran
Time to Celebrate is one of the hostess choices in the Occasions Mini catalog. A friend of mine and I love these images and she “challenged” me to make something with them. I did some very clean and simple cards – simply stamping the images in Momento Tux Black ink and coloring them Blendabilities. The only addition are some Candy Dots in the corner.
So there you have it! Clean and simple! Hugs, Fran
Love, love, love this little bird in the Saleabration set – A Happy Thing! I used Blendies to color him, cut him out, and set me on the Hardwood background. The design is the same as this card. Hope you’re enjoying the Holidays – I am! But I’m glad to get back in my craft room too! Hugs, Fran
A Happy Thing will be available for FREE during Saleabration – January 6-March 31! For every $50 you spend, you will get to pick a free item from the Salebration catalog. It’s a really cute set, especially for Blendabilities. Here I stamped the image 3 times and colored it with Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi Blendies. The background is done with Harwood. Then I added some Dazzling Details to make the lemons sparkle! Hugs, Fran
This beautiful set is called Indescribable Gift. I stamped the flower twice and colored the background and flower using Blendabilities. The ribbon goes through a slit in the front, cut with a craft knife.
Then I fussy cut the flowers and popped them up and added some Dazzling Details.
