Team Egg Cartons

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

Creative Circle April Blog Hop -#Imbringingbirthdaysback

Creative-Circle-Blog-Hop-Resized

In honor of Shannon West’s (from Stampin Up) campaign – I’m Bring Birthday’s back – this month’s Creative Circle Blog Hop is a darling, perpetual calendar!

Creative Circle 4:2016 group

The box has two cubes that can be rotated for the days of the month (remember that the 6 is also the 9), a flip top for the months, and a space int he back to hold your birthday cards so you can actually mail them out!  (I am the worse!)

Creative Circle 4:2016 side

I used the Whisper White Heavy card stock and the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Pack to make mine.  This paper stack has 48 sheets of double sided paper in it!  My balloons on the front are from Balloon Celebration and are punched out with the matching Balloon Bouquet Punch.

Creative Circle 4:2016 Rose Wonder

This card uses the bow from the Cutie Pie Thinlit, more It’s My Party paper and the Elegant Dot embossing folder.

Creative Circle 4:2016 Picture Perfect

This card uses the Picture Perfect stamp set and Blushing Bride.

Creative Circle 4:2016 Happy Birthday Everyone

And last, but not least, this card uses the Bokeh technique.  You can find it on Splitcoast here.

You can get the pattern here:

To see all the other wonderful designs for this pattern, follow along on our hop!  One lucky person who leaves a comment will win the pattern 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Party ’til the Cows Come Home

PIU Brownie 02

Today is day one for Karen Burniston’s Design Team May Challenge – Barns, Barns, Barns!  And I bring you Brownie the Cow getting ready to party 🙂  The stamp is from Life’s Adventure (a Stampin Up hostess set that’s getting ready to retire!) on some very fun Birthday Bash Designer Series paper.

PIU Brownie 02 detail

The cake was colored with Copic markers and the party hat is from Karen’s Props 2 die set.

PIU Brownie 03

And here’s the herd at the barn- what a celebration!  The barn Pop It Ups stand fits perfectly into the fold – holding up the barn (which is holding up the cows!) The word bubble is computer generated and the sentiment is from Sassy Salutations.  The balloons (from the Spiral Pull Card die) are on fishing line.  You can easily face the cows in any direction by simply flipping the die cuts over.

PIU Brownie 03 open

I added 1 3/4″ to my barn to make it higher by simply gluing an extra piece of yardstick on the bottom of the front and back barn. You can check out all the other cards on Karen’s Facebook page!  Hugs, Fran

 

Sweet Laughter

Sweet Laughter 01

Sweet Laughter is a Mini Catalog stamp set with some little line drawn images and cute sentiments. I chose to do a clean and simple card for this one using only Whisper White, some Sweet Sadie washi tape and a button.  The image was colored with Blender pens and ink.  I’ve kind of overlooked this set up until now so you might see a few more before Mother’s Day – it’s really cute!  Hugs, Fran

Pop It Up From the Herd

PIU From the Herd 02

 

Karen Burniston has come out with a new line of Pop It Ups – and they fit perfectly with the stamp set From the Herd!  One the dies is the Barn Pop Stand (1021).  I used it on the front of this card!  And the doors slide open and closed!

PIU From the Herd 02 open

Inside is Cheepers the Chicken (1023), Brownie the Cow (1022), and Virgil the Pig (1024)!  And they are all celebrating 🙂

PIU From the Herd 02 detail

The party hat is from Props 2 and the balloons are from the Spiral Pull Card.  What a fun, fun set of dies!

Easter Berry Basket

Big Shot Berry Basket 01

Double your fun with this Berry Basket 🙂  I made this one out of Coaster Board and it is sturdy, sturdy, sturdy!  To do this, I cut the Berry Basket Die 4 times and assembled them 3/4 of the way – meaning on one piece for each basket I cut off one flap.  Cut a piece of Coaster Board 3 x 6 and layer the 3/4 baskets on top of it.  Line the inside with some of the Best Year Ever DSP and make a long edge to go around the basket.  The handle is a 1/2 x 12 piece of Coaster Board.  Decorate and fill with lots of Easter candy – it can handle it!  Hugs, Fran

Sweet Laughter

Sweet Laughter 01

I seem to be focusing on laughter this week 🙂  This is the Sweet Laughter set in the Spring Mini.  This clean and simple card is a 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White base with a 3 1/2 x 3 center piece stamped with the image and colored with Copic markers.  I added some Sweet Sadie washi tape and a Subtle button – done!  Clean and simple – and sweet!  Hugs, Fran

Make ‘Em Laugh (or maybe just smile)

Bathtub Pop Stand 01

Second day of the Make ‘Em Laugh Challenge for the Karen Burniston Design Team.  This card might just “squeeze by” as funny.  The card is 6 x 6 and uses the Beach Edges and Palm Tree and Pail dies along with some of the words from the Photopolymer stamp set Countless Sayings #2.

Bathtub Pop Stand 01 open

The inside finds Rocky taking a bath in the Bathtub Pop Stand die under the palm trees!  The sentiment is from So You.

The tub and bubbles are made from white Shimmer Sheets.  Pop over to Karen’s Facebook page to see the rest of the cards for this challenge!

Beautiful Sympathy

Rectangular Accordion 05 front

This is a Pop It Ups Rectangular Accordion card using some Elizabeth Craft Design Flower Quartet peel off stickers, Silk microfine glitter and Copics to color it.  The Designer Series paper is from the SU Spring Mini – Painted Blooms – and it’s all tied off with some Hello Honey ribbon.  The paper is so gorgeous it’s hard to decide which piece to use!

Rectangular Accordion 05

I used the sentiment in Love & Sympathy for the inside.  It’s stamped in Wild Wasabi.  Els has a great video on YouTube on how to use the stickers with glitter and Copics.  They really make a card sparkle!  Hugs, Fran
