Something fun! The image is from a Copic class I took at Kit and Clowder from La La Land (Heart Cupcake Marci.) I paired her with Sweet Sugarplum paper and some washi tape dotted with white Nuvo Drops. There’s a glitter gem in the center of the flower punch. So, of course, she had to go with………
Karen Burniston’s Pop Up Cupcake! The sentiment is from Birthday Blooms. This was sent to my niece to celebrate her birthday today 🙂 Hope it makes her smile – Hugs, Fran
I read about this fun technique using a credit card to drag Distress Oxide Inks across your card stock to create patterns and thought I’d give it a try. I started with a combo of blues and yellows – and it was a hot mess! But I kept dragging colors and when I added white paint and black ink, I was happy with the results!
I used the Happy Birthday Thinlit in Daffodil Delight and die cut it 3 times. stocking them together so it would be strong enough to go across the circle opening. Then I added some black enamel dots.
For the left over piece, I embossed a background and just added the circle and another Happy Birthday to the front of the card. 2 card for 1!
In other news, the annual garage sale is coming up the 15-16th. If you live in the Lexington, KY area – you are invited to attend! There are lots of us gathering together to create one of the best crafting garage sales you’ll ever see!
My craft room looks like a complete mess! And this was early in the process!! Hope you can stop by 🙂 Hugs, Fran
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
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
This set is Birthday Blast and it has not seen as much love as it should have. Not only is it really cute – it has a matching die:) This card is pretty much a case of the catalog done in Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. Hugs, Fran
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
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
It’s a colorful cake! I love how this set – Cake Crazy – has patterns that work together or separately. I used the colors in the Party Animal Designer Series paper to create the cake. And lots of Dazzling Details 🙂 Hugs, Fran
This is a notecard (3 1/2 x 5) covered with Succulent Garden DSP and using the Big on Birthdays stamp set. Very simple and so cute! Just stamp the ribbon above the sentiment and you’re good to go! Hugs, Fran
Pay no attention to the color cast on this photo. I changed my battery on my camera and ……well, I’m not sure! But her’s a trio-fold card using the Hardwood background and Circle of Spring stamp sets.
The wreath is on the left panel and as you open it ……
You have a pretty inside to write your greeting. Hugs, Fran
