This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card full of LOVE. Using the Largest Letters Framelits, I cut them out of the Real Red strip and then replaced them with white letters stamped with the line of hearts from Sealed with Love. The “In the Air” is embossed with white embossing powder. The heart border is made using the Love Notes Framelit dies. I cut a sliver of silver Glimmer paper to run through the middle of the hearts. Hugs, Fran
Splashes of color make this gal look like she’s dancing in the sunshine. I splashed the color on Shimmery White card stock – drying it between each color – and then stamped the Beautiful You girl in Stazon. The little splatters are from Avant Garden. Colors used are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tangerine Tango.
For this card, I did the same technique using Pool Party, Island Indigo and Soft Sky. The splatter is done in Soft Sky. It’s addicting! Hugs, Fran
This Beautiful You card was done with ink and an aqua painter. Very simple water coloring and the sentiment on vellum. The background is just a light wash of Pool Party. The Daffodil Delight umbrella really stands out! Hugs, Fran
Balloon Adventures is a fun set with a matching die that makes a pop up card! I started with a shaker front using the Party Animal Designer Series paper and the pop up insert as a flat piece. (I probably should have shown this card inside to front!)
This is the inside. So now you can see that the piece can be used on the front or inside. Bright, happy colors ! Hugs, Fran
Who doesn’t love a sweet monster with a birthday wish? This Yummy in my Tummy set is from the Occasions Mini and I’ve paired him with the Cool Treats set and Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series paper. Plus he’s on an action wobbler!
His popsicle is covered with Glossy Accents so it shines and he is colored with Copic Markers. Hope you enjoy! Hugs, Fran
The Occasions catalog and Sale a bration start tomorrow and I think this set – Beautiful You – will be a winner! These are some of my first samples. The larger “squiggle” image fits on her dress! Simple stamping at it’s best!
Or some paper piecing for her dress in a monochromatic color scheme. The polka dot paper is from Pop of Pink – so I added a pink belt to her outfit. Easy! Hugs, Fran
I have a “thing” for tall, skinny cards! ( 4 1/2 x 8 1/2) I’m not sure why I love them, but I do. And this new Cake Crazy set makes them! I used Cake Crazy and Big on Birthdays with the Party Animal Designer Series paper to make this.
Cake Crazy is a builder type of set – you use the different pieces to make any style cake. I wanted the cake in the background so the sentiment would be front and center.
Once the cake and sentiment were stamped, I went over some of the details with some left over Dazzling Details.
And added some banners and a button to the top. You can kind of see on the left where I stitched the Pacific Point card stock with my sewing machine. Must be for someone special since I had to practically dig out my machine 🙂
Tomorrow is the day that the Occasions Catalog goes live and Sale a ration starts! Big day! Hugs, Fran
Happy New Year! Today I’m sharing a card using a stamp set called All Things Thanks from the upcoming Occasions catalog. For this card I used the Bokeh technique. I took the colors from the new Succulent Garden Designer Series paper – Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral, and Sweet Sugarplum. The mat around the water color paper is Gold Foil and I added some gold sequins and small dots using a gold pen. It’s a nice way to show off some of the large sentiments. Wishing you the best! Hugs, Fran
