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 –

Here’s my version of the Salebration set Hey Chick. I used inks and an aqua painter to color the hens and Serene Scenery Designer Series paper for the card. Lots of fun! Hugs, Fran
It starts today! Salebration! And this card shows off 2 of the free sets available when you spend $50. Avant Garden and So Very Much. I stamped a flower from Avant Garden in Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango on to water color paper and then added leaves in Wild Wasabi and Garden Green. Using an aqua painter, I got the flowers and leaves wet and let them blend a little bit. After they had dried, I stamped on top of it with the So Very Much sentiment in Stazon. Think of all the color combos you could use! Hugs, Fran
I was playing with my stencils from the Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks and the Salebration set Hello and came up with these cards. They are simply stenciled darker at top and lighter to the bottom to create a faded look. Hello is stamped with Soft Suede.
I had finished the stripes when it occurred to me to try the Dots. Did you get this set during SAB? It’s no longer available – but there are some new stamp sets and products to take it’s place. You can see what’s new –US SAB_2016_2nd Release_print-friendly
So while I was wandering around Pinterest, I saw a beautiful card done by Jennifer McGuire (I think!) using the resist technique. This is where you heat emboss your image and sponge (or brayer) ink over the image and the ink “resists” your embossing. I tried it with the Saleabration set Hello. I stamped the image over the front of the card, embossed in white, and sponged with Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay. The result was a bright, happy card! The sentiment is from Timeless Love – one of my favorite sentiments!. This Hello set is only available for a few more days! Need it? Yes you do – and you need to hurry! Hugs, Fran
