Sparkly Pink Cake

PIU Cake 02

Pretty Pink!  The sentiment on this card is from Remembering Your Birthday and it’s perfect for this card. I used the retired Hearts Framelits to make a series of hearts – one stenciled with Karen Burniston’s Flower stencil and glitter, one with the sentiment and one small heart.

Open it up – and you have a pink Pop It Up Cake with lots of glitter!

Karen has a great video showing how to make this background.  But be careful – glitter is addicting!  Hugs, Fran

Birthday Pull Card

Rectangular Pull Card 09

It’s been snowing here – really, really snowing.  17 inches of snow!  So I’ve been coloring 🙂  This is Saturated Canary’s Ellie’s Birthday on a Pop It Ups Rectangular Pull Card using Remembering Your Birthday as the sentiment on Best Year Ever Designer Series paper – colored with Copic markers!  Did I mention we had a big snow?

When you open it up, balloons from Pop It Ups Props 2 and packages from the Evergreen Pivot card decorate the inside.

And the sentiment says it all!  I’ve pulled everything I own out while doing this card! (Did I mention it snowed?) Hugs, Fran

You’re a Star

Pictogram Punches 03

I needed a birthday card so I decided to try out one of Karen Burniston’s videos on making a Spiral Pull Card with a character. I chose to put Poppy the Owl on the front and used the very fun Flashback Designer Series Paper with Pictogram Punches for the sentiment.

Zoo Babies

This card is a combination of several baby cards I’ve seen using this stamp set.  I chose to make it into a birthday card – a belated birthday card!  Unfortunately, I need lots of these.  This is an easy card – and an easy layout.  It’s great for show casing all kinds of images.

Etc – Pennant die, 2 1/2 circle punch, ABC embossing folder, button, baker’s twine

I’m cleaning up my office today.  Between old and new – it’s a mess!  Hugs, Fran

So What Got You Started

Stamping?  Did you go to a workshop or party?  Try it on your own?  I saw some cute images in a store one day and decided to give it a try.  My first images were a cute hedgehog from Penny Black and some little kiddos from Me & My Big Ideas.  I still have them.  They led me to want to find out more about this art – and here I am.  So since today is my birthday, I decided to pull out some of these very old images and make something new.

An odd color combo on the front – Wisteria Wonder, Real Red and Basic Black.  The sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday was the perfect font and saying for this card.
On the inside I used Karen Burniston’s Lot’s of Pops die and the cute little triangle punch from the Occasions mini.

So now it’s your turn!  What got you started stamping?  Hugs, Fran

Hip Notes

So what do you do when your daughter brings you a package of wooden camera shapes?  You pair one up with the Essential Wooden Elements out of the Spring/Occasions Mini and make a card!  And doesn’t this paper from I Am Me work perfectly with this?  I also used the On Film Framelits and Arrow embossing folder – plus some Washi tape.  (Gotta use washi tape!)

The elements are very light weight and fairly thin.  I adhered them with some Tombow Multipurpose adhesive.  To finish off the camera, I filled the camera lens area with Crystal Effects.

The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday.

Card stock  – Basic Gray, Pool Party, Whisper White, I Am Me DSP
Ink – Jet Black Stazon, Basic Gray, Pool Party
Etc – Essential Wooden Shapes, Crystal Effects, On Film Framelits, Candy Dots, Epic Day This & That Washi tape, Arrows embossing folder

The wooden elements are really easy to stamp on. I even used a Stamp a Ma Jig to line up the words with no problem.  Fun, fun, fun!  Hugs, Fran

Birthday Accordion Album

This bright and cheery card is LATE for my niece’s birthday!  Sheesh!   I used the Sizzix Accordion Flip Album die designed by Karen Burniston (who also designed the SU exclusive Pop N Cuts die and inserts!)  The color combination comes from the Designer Series Paper I Am Me. 

Here it is opened – the mirrored paper just will not photograph.

I used Flower Shop to add the So Saffron flowers.

Now to get this in the mail!

Stamp Sets – Flower Shop, Remembering Your Birthday
Card stock – Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Pool Party, I Am Me DSP, mirror paper
Ink – So Saffron, Real Red
Etc – Accordion Album Flip die and Frame, Flower punch, 1/2 circle punch, 2 1/2 Circle Punch

I’ve been running behind for a few days now so I’m taking today to try and get things together.  Wish me luck!  Hugs, Fran

More Sketched Birthday

Still searching for that perfect card using Sketched Birthday!  Here I tried it with the very fun Designer Series paper – Birthday Basics.  I just love the color combo in this DSP!  On this one I stamped the sentiment directly on the paper and it’s a bit busy. 

So on this one I turned the card and stamped the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla.  Better.

Card Stock – Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe, Very Vanilla, Birthday Basics DSP

Stampin Write Markers – Crisp Cantaloupe, Bermuda Bay, Summer Starfruit

Our Stamping Garage sale went great – and I’m glad it’s over   We had almost cold weather which was very nice (and very different for the sale.)  Hugs, Fran
