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
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
This set needs a sentiment that says “just chicken on you!” I used the Woodgrain background from the front and die cut a rectangle through the front panel and the card. I sandwiched a piece of some kind of plumbers tape (I don’t know what it’s really called!) and tucked the chicken in to peek out.
Inside I put a piece of Crushed Curry so the chicken doesn’t get lost.
This set is so much fun! Hugs, Fran
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
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
Make a Medallion is another stamp set you can choose as a Salebration freebie starting tomorrow. For this card I stamped it multiple times in Versamark on Whisper White and then heat embossed it white embossing powder. (You could also use clear) Sponge on Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party from bottom to top and add a sentiment strip from One Big Meaning. Add a little bit of 3/8 Metallic Ribbon and some sequins and mount on some Heavy White card stock. Hugs, Fran
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
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 –
or this one –
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
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
