Rectangular Pull Card 03

Here’s another practice piece made into a Pop It Ups Rectangular Pull card.  It was a long, snowy winter and I did lots of these – hope you don’t get bored!  The image in Saturated Canary’s Reader colored with Copic markers.  I used Real Red card stock and Marina Mist Designer Series paper and ribbon for the card.

Rectangular Pull Card 03 open

Inside is the Pop It Ups piece that comes with the Rectangular Pull Card die.  The sentiment is from Four You in Real Red.  This has become one of my favorite dies because so many things fit on it!  Hugs, Fran

Flower Vintage

Flower Shoppe 07

This card is for the Splitcoast September Creative Crew challenge to focus on the Typeset Designer Series paper.  I embossed the Very Vanilla with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake,  On the Typeset panel I sponged and added my sentiment (heat embossed) and flowers from Flower Shop.  Then I splattered Espresso ink on the card by tapping an aqua painter against my bone folder.

Just a Note

From a million layers yesterday to a “flat” card today!  This note card uses the lovely background set Swallowtail.  The great thing about this stamp is that it stands alone – background and focal image!.

Ink – Smokey Slate, Jet Black Stazon
Etc – Subtle Candy Dots, Dazzling Details
I couldn’t help adding a little bit of Dazzling Details to the butterfly!  We all need a little sparkle in our lives  Hugs, Fran

Four You

And one more Scallop Tag Topper punch fancy fold!  This one uses 2 techniques on top of the fold – a fringed flower and a Chevron punch lattice.  The lattice piece is done by punching 2 pieces of cardstock 1 1/2 x 6 with the Chevron punch.  You will end up with 2 pieces of “arrows.”  Flip one over and tuck the points of the top one (now facing downwards) under the points of the bottom one (facing upwards)  Then you can slide them until you get the look you want.  The fringed flower uses the Fringe scissors.  Cut a 1 1/2 x 12″ piece of DSP and fold it in half long ways so that it is now 3/4 x 12.  Use the fringe scissors and cut the fringe down the long side.  I use a bamboo skewer to start rolling it and use hot glue to hold it together.  Once the glue has dried, start curling the fringe with your fingers until it looks like a flower.

Four You

Four You saved my swap last week   I had die cut all the pieces for a swap at my team meeting when I suddenly realized that the HI in the set wouldn’t die cut.  I didn’t really have time to start over – so I started scanning my shelves in search for a set that would fit on the label and convey the same feeling.  I embossed the Hello in white – and it was ready to go.

Stamp Set – Four You
Card stock – Whisper White, So Saffron, Real Red, Pool Party, I Am Me DSP
Ink – Versamark
Etc – White Embossing Powder, small heart punch, Real Red Ribbon, staple, Label Thinlit

My new Thinlits are on their way here – but in the meantime, I have this card.  Hugs, Fran
