Hey Chick through the Pen

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

Avant Love

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

Lift Me Up Birthday

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

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

Reverse Words in the Air

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

Straightening Up Reverse Words

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 –

Reverse Words Birthday

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

Paper Pros – Shake It Up

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

Chicken Love

I needed a funny Valentine for someone special so I decided to use the crazy chicken in Hey Chick (Salebration) to peek out and send my love.  (You can click on the picture to make it larger ) This is a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 card with the “love” part done as a shaker.  I arranged the letters with a heart from Sweet & Sassy framelits and cut them out of Real Red.  The chicken is stamped on the backing of the shaker and a few hearts are attached to the top of the transparency.  The letters are filled with sequins.  Then I used the left over letters to make this card –

The DSP on both cards is Sending Love from the Occasions Mini.  Hugs, Fran
