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
We had a team meeting recently and I had challenged my team to use the egg cartons for a project. Some of the gals took me up on my challenge and I want to share the results with you today! Send out some love for……..
Our beach loving friend, Anne! She did a home decor egg carton.
The carton is decorated with Swirly Bird and the matching dies and filled with…..
sea shells! Brilliant! Next up is Lynne……….
She used the Salebration set Hey Chick and made the chicks stand up on the top of her colored egg carton!
Can you see how they stand up?
Inside she made an Easter treat box. Cute! Then there was Elena’s carton – which made everyone gasp!
Yeah, I know! She used paper succulents and some store bought succulents to create a rock garden!
There were so many gorgeous things going here! See her cute sign? I played along too……..
I used Bunny Basket to make a traditional Easter egg carton.
And that’s it! Thanks to gals who participated and hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all these ideas. Hugs, Fran
Sweet little lamb! He’s from Little Cuties in the Occasions Mini. I stenciled the background using Pear Pizzazz, colored the lamb with Copic and die cut it out with a stitched circle die. On the right side I added some Pear Pizzazz paper and a little strip of Pink Pirouette. Very simple. Hugs, Fran
Here’s another Perfect Mix card. I found this very retired piece of Tempting Turquoise patterned paper and put it to use. The egg carton image is colored with Copics and one egg is paper Pieced with the reverse of the flower paper and then covered with Crystal Effects. Very easy! Hugs, Fran
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
One more in this style – Nailed It. I used the Serene Scenery DSP for the card, stamped and die cut the hammer and popped it up on the panel. Funny how this was my least favorite of this style card and one of my daughter’s favorite! The Congrats was stamped on the inside. Always great to have some more masculine cards around. Hugs, Fran
