Paper Pros May Challenge – A Few of My Favorite Things

The Paper Pros are at it again with a new challenge – A Few of My Favorite Things!  One of my favorite things is Karen Burniston’s Heart Pivot die.  Using a new Stamping Up Designer Series paper, Delightful Daisy, I created a Mother’s Day card.  I die cut the heart in Wisteria Wonder and stamped the background with another new stamp, Wood Words, and heat embossed “with love” over the top.

On the inside I repeated the background stamping and stamped the sentiment from the retiring Oh So Succulent, on Whisper White and die cut a banner from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The Pool party strip is embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder and the Wisteria trim is punched with a border punch and placed underneath another strip of the DSP.  The Heart Pivot die is a “forever” die in my collection!

Make sure to check out what the other Pros have created this month!  Hugs, Fran

 

Balloon Shaker

I love shaker cards but have a terrible time deciding how much filler to put in them.  This one is stuffed!  But boy, does it shake!  I used the Balloon Adventure stamp set and matching die and Tasty Treats Specialty paper to make this card.  The Sprinkles Embellishments inside match the paper.  Very fun – if a little too full.  Hugs, Fran

Happy Celebrations

Sometimes we just need a cute, quick card for someone.  This one uses the Celebrations Duo embossing folders.  You get two of them – Celebrate and Happy – and there is a matching stamp set called Happy Celebrations,  I used just the Celebrate folder, which de-bosses the paper and stamped some circles around the image in Pool Party, Island Indigo and Crushed Curry.  Add some enamel dots and Bakers Twine and you’re good to go!  Hugs, Fran

Punched Birthday

I was sorting through some old punches and thought I’d try this card.  It’s a 3 x 8 card and you can make an envelope for it using the Envelope Punch Board. The  colors from left to right are Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Cucumber Crush, Pear Pizazz , Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, and Real Red.  I drew a straight line across the card stock and lined them up.  That’s it!  Now to search through the rest of my punches and see which other ones will work with this style card!  Try it!  Hugs, Fran

Balloon Adventure Shutter Card

I’m working on shutter cards – because I usually get stuck on an idea!  This on uses Balloon Adventure and the matching die set.  The sentiment was punched out with the Duet Banner punch.  The paper is Party Animals – one of my favorites!

Inside is the stamped balloon.  For this one I punched the ends of the shutter part with a circle punch.  It worked fairly well – so I might have to try more shapes  Hugs, Fran

Easter Sampler

I thought I’d change my Valentine sampler to an Easter Sampler.  I used the Circle Spring, Basket Bunch and Suite Sayings stamp sets along with the matching dies to make this one.  The matting is Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral. You can click on the image to see the squares.   Hugs, Fran
