Design Decisions

This was design #1.  Crazy About You and Sassy Salutations.  The Basic Black is 4 1/4 x 11, Real Red 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4.  Simple design for a Stamp a Stack.

Crazy About You 03


Design #2 – Real Red 4 1/4 x 11, Basic Black 4 x 5 1/4, Whisper White 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and “the other” flower from Crazy About You (and a blurry pic – sorry!)

Crazy About You 02


And this is the one I chose – Basic Black 4 1/4 x 11, Real Red 5 1/4 x 4, Whisper White 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I could have gone either way – Black or Red base, but my kids liked the Black base best.  How about you?  Hugs, Fran


Beachy Thoughts Challenge Day 2

Setting Sail 02

Today is the second day of Karen Burniston’s Designer Challenge and I’m showing you my “cute” card – Rocky on the beach!  He’s having a great time while I’m sitting in the snow 🙂  This is a 3 x 6 card using the EDC die Tags and More 3 as the base.  The stamp set is a SU Photopolymer set called Setting’ Sail.

Setting Sail 02 open

On the inside I added the Pop It Ups mechanism from the Rectangular Pull card so that Rocky pops out into the water when you open it.  The little trees in the background are the Beach Edges dies.  The colors used are Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight.  I hope you are enjoying the teams artsy and cute cards!  Hugs, Fran

Bloom For You Petal Card

Bloom For You 01

This is sort of an “inverted” case of the little card on page 139 using the Single Stamp, Bloom for You.  The catalog used the envelope punch board – but I used the new Gift Card Enclosure Pack card (page 194. (136662)  This are precut, pre scored gift card enclosure card – 10 per pack.  I put the design on the front and added Sassy Salutations for the sentiment.  The little flag is made with Itty Bitty Banners and glued to a toothpick.  This is really easy to do by using the Silicone Craft Sheets (127853) under the flag.

Bloom for You 01 open

This is what the inside looks like.  The gift card fits in the slits below the sentiment.  Then you just fold it up!

My Digital Studio Fun

There’s so much going on in the Stampin Up world!  Let’s start with some My Digital Studio fun.  I saw a card like this in a magazine online and knew I could recreate it using MDS and my ecutter. 

This is how the original card was done – and then I decided to add more color –

I just imported the Timeless Type Numbers punches into my ecutter’s software and pushed a button!  That’s fun!

Stamp Set – Sassy Salutations
card stock – Basic Gray, Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP, (Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Delightful Daffodil, Lucky Limeade)
Etc – My Digital Studio (Timeless Type Numbers punches) corner rounder, Owl punch and Cupcake punches (for those little tiny circles!)

And there’s FREE SHIPPING this weekend!  I’ve been with SU for 10 years and I think this is a first for me
It applies to any size order – big or small – so HAPPY SHOPPING!  Because you might want to stock on theretiring cardstock colors

Change the Look with Sentiments

At one of my stamp clubs we were talking about how to use a Valentine design into a card you can use for other occasions.  I told them I’d take up that challenge – so here you go ladies!  The same card with different looks simply by changing the sentiment  Above is Sassy Salutations – and below is Delightful Dozen. 

The next three are sentiments found in Vintage Verses – a Sale a bration set! 

I think I like the birthday sentiment from Delightful Dozen best.  How about you?  Hugs, Fran
