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

I’ve been playing with the Window Shopping suite. These little boxes with all their inserts are really cute – and easy!
This one has a piece of Gold foil in the top.
On this one I made a banner (a bit large!) and did candles on the side.
I used DSP behind the candles and card stock on the flame.
While I had the stamp set out, I made a card cased from the catalog. Nice suite and one that will be useful! Hugs, Fran
For this card I used the stamp set Special Reason in Calypso Coral and White Craft ink. It mutes the color a bit to give a softer look. I added lots of sparkly splatter and rhinestone and used a sentiment from Hero Arts. The background paper is from the Brights Patterns. Hugs, Fran
A combo of Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Cucumber Crush – using Special Reason from the Occasions Mini. This is my case of the catalog. A few changes but nothing way different. I really like this color combo 🙂 Reminds me that summer is coming up if we can ever just have spring! I hope you’ll try it! 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
Coloring is all the rage right now and Stampin Up has it covered with the very cute Inside the Lines Designer Series paper. There are 4 different patterns – but it’s only available for one more day! We did this one at Card Club, colored it with the new Watercolor pencils, and paired it with a sentiment from Falling For You.
We added some gel pen and some Wink of Stella to create these cards but they could be left blank and sent with some colored pencils to someone who likes to color. That would be fun! 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
Here’s a card using Avant Garden that I combined two different cards I saw on Pinterest to create. One was a sketch and one was these colors and stamps. I used Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizazz and Soft Sky for the flowers and Daffodil Delight for the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri. I used Wink of Stella on the stamping – just because – and did some background interest with Dazzling Details, some clear elements and candy dots. The sentiment is from Lift Me Up. Hugs, Fran
Here are two cards using Reverse Words (one of the new SAB offerings) and Moon Baby (Occasion Mini.)
I stamped the baby and fussy cut her out. The Hooray is stamped in Pink Pirouette and die cut with a stitched rectangle, placed on a Pink Pirouette stitched rectangle and then all put on a background embossed with the Large Polka Dots embossing folder.
And here’s the baby boy version done in Marina Mist. Hint – if you have trouble fussy cutting the umbrella stick – just cut off the top of the umbrella and then reassemble. Only a few more days to get Reverse Words! Hugs, Fran
