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

Circle of Spring

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

Perfect Mix Birthday

Here’s a very simple card for you!  I used Perfect Mix from the Occasions catalog to make this birthday card.  I stamped the mixer twice – once on Pacific Pint and once on the Whisper White and then fussy cut the blue one and popped it up over the sentiment.  I went over the lines on the mixer with a silver gel pen.  The background patterned paper is from Party Animals DSP.  Hugs, Fran

Lift Me Up Birthday

I’ve been doing a lot of this style card recently!  This time I used Lift Me Up to create a birthday card.  The balloon and clouds are die cut with the matching framelits and the Salebration paper Carried Away was used for the card.  (Actually the dots behind the ballon are Mint Macaron from the In Colors paper pack). The clouds are stamped in Smoky Slate and the balloon in Night of Navy.  Hugs, Fran

Bunch of Blossoms in Blue

This set is called Bunch of Blossoms and it’s a three step stamp set that makes beautiful flowers.  I used Marina Mist and Soft Sky to stamp the flowers and Old Olive on the stems and leaves. There is a matching punch for the flowers.

The flowers are popped up on Dimensionals and the ends of flowers (where they meet the stems) are held down with glue dots.  A gentle curl with my bone folder gives them lots of dimension.  Then I added sequins and dots of Dazzling Details and gold jelly roll pen dots 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Super Reverse Words

One more Reverse Word – this time pairing it with Everyday Hero.  The balloon is from Confetti Celebrations.  I stamped the superman, colored with Copics and fussy cut him out.  The bottom of the card is stamped (with a mask) over and over and a few of the buildings were quickly colored with some W Copics and little stars stamped in Smoky Slate.  The balloon is covered with Crystal Effects.  Perfect masculine birthday card!  Hugs, Fran
