This is a 9 x 4 inch card – a BIG birthday wish! Using Build a Birthday and Perfect Pennants, it’s a stack of birthday goodness. Since Build a Birthday is a photopolymer stamp, it’s easy to stack them up. I add some stitching up and down one side and some Crystal Effects. The Designer Series Paper is Cherry on Top. And the Envelope Punch Board makes an envelope for this side! Hugs, Fran
And a few rhinestones 🙂 Today I did a card using only the new In Colors and the stamp set, Work of Art and Perfect Pennants. Love when a card comes together so quickly! You’re going to love these new In Colors! Hugs, Fran
This summer I did a “wow” presentation at a group get together using embossing folders and heat embossing. This idea was inspired by a conversation with Lisa Tedder. I brayered over the Chevron embossing folder with Versamark and then ran Silver Glimmer paper through the Big Shot. Immediately pour embossing powder (I used the now retired Melon Mambo on this one) over the embossing and heat emboss. You get a beautiful background! Double embossing!
Stamp Set – Perfect Pennant
Card stock – Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Ink – Versamark, Melon Mambo
Etc – Chevron embossing folder, rhinestones, silver ribbon, Melon Mambo and Silver embossing powders, Pennant Framelits.
Sparkly! Hugs, Fran
Oh my bleeding heart! I saw this idea on Pinterest – but I did the “foundation” of it in a very different way and got a VERY different look. The one I saw used watercolors on smooth paper. I used reinker on watercolor paper. My card turned out much darker (much, much darker!) I punched the hearts out of watercolor paper and glued them down. After dried I used reinkers in the the lids of the stamp pads and an aquapainter to start the ink flowing. The sequins are colored with Copic markers – which worked very well.

Try it and let me know how it works for you! Hugs, Fran
This card was made for a good friend of mine and this sentiment from Perfect Pennants was, well, perfect! I based the colors on the Retro Fresh This and That Washi tape.
On the inside I stamped one of the tape looking stamps across the bottom. This could easily be more washi tape if you aren’t in the mood to try and stamp a straight line!.
