Golden Pineapple

Pineapple 02
















Nothings says “Thank You” like a golden pineapple!  This wonderful background stamp was stamped in Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.  The gold sequin are a fun embellishment.

The card stock is the Shimmery White card stock paired with Gold Foil.  Again, I stamped the sentiment on vellum.  (I’m seeing a pattern here!)  Hugs, Fran

Painter’s Palette – Catalog Copy

Painter's Palette 03












This is a case of the Painter’s Palette card on page 119 on the new catalog.  I used Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach inks with Playful Palette Designer Series paper.   Isn’t the vellum strip so pretty behind the easel?  I love how it softens the Sweet Sugarplum DSP.  This is a design I will use over and over!  Hugs, Fran

Gift of Love

Gift of Love 01
















Gift of Love is a new hostess set –  a 2-step stamp and it’s so pretty!  I used the Watercolor Wash background stamp along with Gorgeous Grunge.  The sentiment is stamped on vellum and the flower is stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Flirty Flamingo.  Those new Adhesive strips made it so easy to pop up the flower 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Watercolored Marquee Sneak Peek

Marque Messages 04


















Coming soon to a stamp room near you!

Stamped in Stazon on watercolor paper and watercolored with an aqua painter and ink – it’s a catalog case of the new set Marquee Messages.  An easy background on the base of the card, I simply stamped in Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake ink.  Add a little washi tape – and you’ve got a great card!  I bet you can’t wait to get this set!  Hugs, Fran


Sneak Peek Pineapple

Pineapple 01
















This set was one I really wanted – Pineapple!  It’s large.  The image is 5 1/4″ tall so it’s considered a background stamp.  I did the coloring with sponges.  I sponged Crushed Curry on the fruit and edged it with Delightful Dijon.  On the leaves, I sponged Old Olive and then edged it in Garden Green.  *I will reverse that on the next one!!

The sentiment is from Pop of Paradise.  And the background paper is from the In Color paper pack.  Hugs, Fran






Sneak Peek Marque Messages

Marque Messages 01

















You might have seen this card – everywhere!  It uses the new set Marque Messages!  This design was shown OnStage and is so cute and easy.  I did mine on a notecard.

The best thing about this design is that all 3 cards are made from just 3 pieces of scrap card stock.  You simply stamp the design 3 times, cut the different pieces out and reassemble in 3 different color combos.  It’s like a puzzle.

Marque Messages 03


















I used Rose Red, Old Olive and Peekaboo Peach. This is going to be a fun one!  Hugs, Fran

Sneak Peek Pop of Paradise

Pop of Paridise 01
















Something new!  Pop of Paradise stamp set and the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series paper.  Stampin Up show this basic design on a gift bag.  I turned it into a card with very little fuss.  The leaves are embossed in gold – which is hard to photograph!  This cute, flamingo set will be in the new catalog starting June 1 🙂  Hugs, Fran


Sneak Peek Pun Intended Day 3

Pun Intended 02

















It’s the camera again!  This time I drew search light beams and colored them with Copics.  Again, I stamped the camera 3 times and fussy cut the different pieces and coated them with Crystal Effects.

And so is bling!  Rhinestones add a sparkly touch to the front.  And remember – you can only get this set by hosting a party 🙂  Hugs, Fran


Sneak Peek Pun Intended Day 2

Pun Intended 03 front

















Pun Intended Day 2!  Yesterday I showed you all the cute images in the set and today I’m showing you my favorite (current favorite) – the camera.  I paired it with the current Everyday Chic Designer Series paper.

Pun Intended 03 side







I stamped the camera 3 times and cut out different layers to add dimension to the card.  The lens, flash bulb and view finder are all coated with Crystal Effects.

Pun Intended 03

















I did some shading around the lens with a Smoky Slate marker and repeated the front design on the inside.  Keep in mind that you can only get this new hostess set by hosting a party 🙂  Hugs, Fran
