I had a piece of card stock that I’d stamped with the Saleabration set Avant Garden left over from another project and I decided to die cut some letters from it. “Love” fit on the paper (!) so that’s what I went with! After die cutting the letters from the Large Letter die, I adhered it to a Whisper White stitched rectangle and mounted it on a larger Stitched rectangle with a piece of Blushing Bride. I added the sentiment from Best Birds in Early Espresso. Hugs, Fran
Here’s a 6 x 6 Shower card made with Karen Burniston’s Stage It Stencils – Rain, and Baby Charms. The Night of Navy base was cut 6 x 11 and scored at 6″. This leaves you a 1″ area at the bottom for your sentiment. The rain was done in a Micorbead Embossing paste and Wisteria Wonder ink.
This is the inside (and kind of the outside too!) The sentiment is computer generated. Hugs, Fran
It’s almost the wedding season and these new new bride and groom Hanging Charms from Karen Burniston for the Pop It Ups Hanging Charms Pull cards are perfect!
This card is 6 x 6 and the middle square is edged in pearls. The bride and groom are separate charms, so you can use them as you need them! The sentiments are from Karen’s new Best Wishes Clear stamp. I kept my card “postcard style” – with a white back so I can write a nice message.
The card stock is the beautiful Irresistibly Yours from Stampin Up! and it has beautiful patterns embossed on them – hard to see. It’s all tied off with white satin ribbon. Hope you’ll find lots of uses for these darling charms. I will! (hint, hint!) Hugs, Fran
This is my take on the Beautiful Ride card shown on page 15 in the Occasions Catalog. I used Pacific Point and Pool Party. (I believe the sample is Bermuda Bay and Pool Party – but hey!) I stamped the car in Pacific Point on Pool Party yardstick and added some color using a blender pen. The suitcases were colored with Stampin Write Markers, fussy cut and adhered to the top of the card. Hugs, Fran
This is Beautiful Ride ( Occasions catalog page 15) It has this cute car and lots of fun images that go on, in or on top of it! I used Island Indigo and Pool Party card stocks. The car is stamped on the Pool Party and colored by lightly using a Blender pen and Pool Party ink. Hugs, Fran
The front of this 5 x 5 card features the new Back to Black Designer Series Paper and the set Something to Say. The inside has Mr and Mrs Chilly in their bridal splendor sitting on top of Karen Burniston’s new Lorna Label Pop it Ups die. If you look closely, you’ll see that she is sporting a bridal veil and he is wearing his glitter glasses! To get the different paper on the Lorna Label, I simply cut the DSP off of the label, flipped it over and used the reverse side! To make the writing surface for the inside, just die cut a large heart to carry out the theme.

This card is a case of one of my own ballerina dress cards – altered to work for a bride. I used Celebrate With Us from the Occasions Mini and a spray of small, silk flowers on the front of the exclusive – and soon to be retired!- Pop Up Card die.
Instead of a tutu, I made a long train of tulle. You can see it better from the side –
I will sorely miss this die – but it will remain in my “stash” forever

A friend is having a bridal shower and I am helping her with a few things. These are the table gifts she has decided to use. They are the Quatrefancy Specialty paper window sheets die cut with the (now retired) Pillow die. These window sheets die cuts beautifully! (we used 2 plates instead of the crease pad)
The pillows are sealed with the sticker strips from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit and decorated with both butterfly punches. The rhinestones are self adhesive but we ended up using some glue so that it was easier to bend the butterfly wings to give them some lift.
So grab those windows sheets and start die cutting! Hugs, Fran
Blooming with Kindness is such a pretty stamp set. The top card is a wedding card in Cherry Cobbler and Baja Breeze. I used Dazzling Details on the flower. The bottom card was me just fooling around I tried using a sponge dauber with a lighter color to highlight the flower. Do you have a preference?

Yesterday a friend and I got together to make treat boxes for her daughter’s bridal shower. Such a cute bride – and she’s using Pool Party as one of her colors! We used the Pop Up Posies Designer Kit and the Fancy Favor die to make 14 of these for the event. Even with a lot of chatting, laughing and eating chocolate – it only took us 2 hours to knock them out.
Everything is included in the kit except the box, adhesive and shimmer spray. We used 2 kits – which was perfect because we each got to keep on of the darling Just For You stamp sets! (don’t you love the font!)
