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

Reverse Words in the Air

So after I did party balloons with the Reverse Word set, I decided to do hot air balloons. The balloon is die cut using the Up & Away Thinlits and the background paper is the Salebration paper Carried Away.  The Reverse Words is stamped in Mint Macaron.  I’m sure you can create a prettier hot air balloon!  Hugs, Fran

Straightening Up Reverse Words

Does it feel like Deja vu?  This is the same card from yesterday – just straightened up and popped up.  This time I fussy cut the balloons (there is a punch for balloons – I just forgot!) and used the die for the ribbons.  Then the balloons are popped up with Dimensionals.  Now you decide!  This one –

Reverse Words Birthday

Starting on the February 21 there are 3 more Saleabration items to pick – Glimmer paper (!) and 2 stamp sets.  This is one of the upcoming sets called Reverse Words.  The two stamps say “hooray” and “cheers.”  I paired it with Balloon Adventures to make this card.  The base is Tempting Turquoise and the colors are Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.  I added some sequins and drew the lines with a marker. Hugs, Fran

Paper Pros – Shake It Up

Today I’m participating in a Paper Pros challenge – Shake it Up!  I chose a birthday shaker featuring Rocky the Crab popping out of the ocean to wish you a great day!  I used a nestled stitched square for the shaker part and Karen Burniston’s Rocky the Crab, Palm Tree & Pail, and Beach Edges and Agatha Edges (bottom of card)  to decorate it.  The Happy Birthday is from the Stampin Up SAB set Designer Tees.  Perhaps a bit too much shaker bits (again!) but boy does it shake!  And that’s the point 🙂   You can find all the shaker madness by clicking the links below.  Hugs, Fran

Butterfly Birthday

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

Jar of Love Fish

Little fishes wishing you a happy birthday!  I stamped the background using Playful Backgrounds in Soft Sky and Marina Mist.  The little fish from Jar of Love are stamped in Tangerine Tango, die cut with the matching die and popped up on the front.  The balloon is from Confetti Celebration.  It’s fussy cut and popped up – with the string cut above and below the sentiment.  I added Crystal Effects on the open circles, stamped another background image on the strip in the middle and it’s ready to celebrate!  Hugs, Fran

Little Cuties

Do you ever buy a set because of one or two images?  Yep, that’s why I bought Little Cuties!  The kitten and puppy are so sweet I just had to have it!  Colored with Copics, I used these two together to make a simple card.  I stamped the puppy and put a mask over him so I could stamp the kitten behind him.  I also masked off part of the sentiment. The balloons are from Bella & Friends.  Hugs, Fran
