Sunburst Thanks

Bright and sunny!  For this card I used the retired SU sunburst stencil and sponged it in Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is stamped on both the Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight circles and then matched up.

The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and is stamped in Versafine Onux Black and heat embossed in clear. Then I got out my Wind of Stella pen and just went crazy – seriously – maybe a bit too crazy!  And sequins (again.)  Well, if nothing else, it sparkles!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Stretch it Out

PIU ROcky the Crab 01 front

This challenge is Stretch it Out – which means accordion albums to me!  I chose the Pop It Up Rectangular Accordion die and Rocky the Crab along with Stampin Up’s By the Shore Designer Series paper.

I used Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter on Very Vanilla card stock for the sand.  The “Thanks” dangling from the top is stamped on both sides so you can read it open or closed.  I also used Pop It Ups Palm Tree and Pail, Oval Pull Card, and Props 3 to create the different scenes.

The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Thankful Thoughts.  Don’t you wish you could stretch out summer like an accordion?  Check Karen’s Facebook page to see all the Stretch it Out designs!  Hugs, Fran

Touches of Texture

Touches of Texture 01

Touches of Texture is a wonderful set!  The textured look of the stamps can be used on their own of paired with other sentiments or stamp sets.  This card uses the brick embossing folder on the background and lots of grungy stamping.

I paired it with Thankful Thoughts and added some Crystal Effects on the flower.  Linen thread finishes it off.  Hugs, Fran
