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
I have done something that I hate – no not the card – but I saw this idea somewhere, wrote it down on my grid paper and promptly threw it away. But this card is based on another one! I started with Serene Scenery DSP and die cut a square from the middle. I added a copper foil square behind it and a strip of Whisper white across the card – and a stamped and embossed strip across the square piece. Then I cut a copper foil dragonfly and adhered it with Dimensionals. Isn’t this a great idea for all those pretty papers that you hate to cut up? 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
I thought I’d change my Valentine sampler to an Easter Sampler. I used the Circle Spring, Basket Bunch and Suite Sayings stamp sets along with the matching dies to make this one. The matting is Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral. You can click on the image to see the squares. Hugs, Fran
