This card is made with the Occasions set Everyday Hero and it has some great cartoon images! I made a card with a 1″ opening that shows the sentiment. I’ve made these before with acetate in the opening – but this one is just held together with the superman image.
It’s much easier to tell what’s going on from a side view. The bottom cityscape is popped up and the top is embossed with the star embossing folder. I went over each star and the lights behind superman with my Wink of Stella pen. Very fun! Hugs, Fran
Here we go with a trio of cards simply creaTed because I cut way too many butterflies. I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with Peekaboo Peach, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette and then die cut some butterflies using the Butterfly Thinlits. With the leftover piece I used the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches to punch the rest. This gave me a lot of butterflies!
Using Gorgeous Grunge and Suite Sentiments, I created 3 background pieces and placed all the butterflies around the sentiment.
That’s a little strip of Glimmer paper down the left side – hard to see in the photograph! So now there are 3 cards – similar but different. Hugs, Fran
This set is called Double Take and it has large letters! It’s a two step set that makes a bold impact. I paired it with the Urban Underground Specialty paper to make this masculine card. I tucked some black twine behind the words and added some sequins and washi tape – and that’s about it! Hugs, Fran
It’s a redo (with maybe another one coming soon!) of this card. So in case you can’t tell, it’s meant to have the feel of a postcard. I drew the box around the stamped images and used an old postage punch to make the stamp. The sentiment was done with a rotary stamp and the images are colored with Copic markers. This time I only put Crystal Effects on the beach ball and the sunglasses. So maybe next I’ll combine the redo of this card with the die cut on the old card and see where that takes me! Hugs, Fran
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
Here’s my version of the Salebration set Hey Chick. I used inks and an aqua painter to color the hens and Serene Scenery Designer Series paper for the card. Lots of fun! Hugs, Fran
This Rocking Horse is from Little Cuties and is colored with the new Watercolor pencils. I used the Lots of Labels framelits and some buttons from my stash to finish it up. The pencils are wonderful! 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
