Thanks Stenciled

Fabulous Four 03

Do you ever play with stencils?  The background on this card is made with the Happy Patterns stencil on page 157 in the Annual Catalog, stencil paste, reinkers, and Dazzling Details.  The colors I used are Pear Pizzaz, Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Blushing Bride.  The stamp is Fabulous Four – which is fabulous!  The glitter really takes this over the top.  Hugs, Fran

Make it Tall

Fabulous Four 01


Here’s another Gift Bag Punch Board bag made with a 12 x 12 piece of Designer Series paper (this one’s retired – but any paper will work!)  I cut a long strip of Whisper 3 1/2 x 11 and stamped the Celebrate from Fabulous Four, masking off the the small words underneath except for the last one, In Mint Macaron.  Flag the end and attach it to the top of the bag.  Cut a butterfly out of Perfect Plum and add some rhinestones to the body.  Add a few flags at the top of the banner and tie it off with the super soft Mint Macaron ribbon.  Love this color combo – Mint Macaron, Perfect Plum, Kraft and Whisper White.  Hugs, Fran

Virgil Birthday


Day 2 for Karen Burniston May Designer Challenge – Barns, Barns, Barns!  Here is Virgil the Pig wishing you a happy birthday.  I used the new Clear stamp, Farm Greetings, stamped in Memento ink and colored with Stampin Write Markers.  The Designer paper in Flower Pot.


The angle on this picture is sort of wonky but when you open the card, Virgil and his barn pop up!  I left the doors of the Barn open so he looks like he’s walking out to greet you!  Love that about this barn!


There, that’s better!  His barn is decorated with a little Flag Punch banner. Fun!  Hugs, Fran

Ooo La La

Eifel Tower 02

Ooo la la!  It’s Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Paris Edges on the front of a Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Basic Black card!  The girl image is Julie Nutting Doll Stamp 1.  This is a 6 x 6 card and the color combo is one of my favorites.

And of course the inside is the Pop It Ups Eiffel Tower!  Sentiment is Stampin Up’s Fabulous Four – and it’s perfect for this card!

I just love how the card lays flat when it’s opened!  Hugs, Fran

Banner Banter 01

This was my card for an organized shoebox swap at convention!  A shoebox swap is where everyone cuts out all the pieces for their card and everyone makes them instead of just swapping.  I used Banner Banter to create the swag across the top and the Maritime Designer Series Paper.  Love the color combo 🙂

Well Worded Friends

Well Worded 01


Well Worded has a cute mustache and a framelit to match!  I wrote the sentiment out in My Digital Studio, leaving a space for the mustache, and added to the front of this 5 x 5 card.

Dotty Angles

Dotty Angles 01

Just playing around with some new stamps!  The background on this card is done with Dotty Angles – a new photopolymer stamp.  I stamped it first in Strawberry Slush and then stamped it again without reinking.  The next color is Blushing Bride and then Pink Pirouette.  The sentiment is from Fabulous Four – which is aptly named because it’s fabulous!  I used some of the new 1/4″ cotton ribbon and the new Fun Flower punch as an accent.

Cardstock – Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White
