Love You

Valentines Day?  Yep!   This card is made with the new Hexagon Dynamic Textured embossing folder and the “love” from Sunshine Wishes framelits.  The heart was was cut from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Glimmer paper.  I sponged on ink – Real Red, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette onto water color paper and then embossed it.  The love was cut from Black card stock and then fun foam, layered together and covered in Glossy Accents.  Very simple.  Hugs, Fran

Weather Together Shaker

Weather Together 01

Let’s shake up the weather!  This card uses Weather Together as a Shaker card.  I started by die cutting a circle and used the adhesive foam strips around the circle to make the holder for the sequins.  The easiest way to do this is to remove the paper from both sides of the strips.  Then it goes around any shape without any cutting or stress.  Add a window sheet to the back and stamp your sentiment in Stazon.  Stamp and die cut the umbrella and place it on top.  Use more adhesive foam strips around the edge of the front piece and adhere it to your card base.

Then shake it!  So cute and easy!  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

This set was one I really wanted – Pineapple!  It’s large.  The image is 5 1/4″ tall so it’s considered a background stamp.  I did the coloring with sponges.  I sponged Crushed Curry on the fruit and edged it with Delightful Dijon.  On the leaves, I sponged Old Olive and then edged it in Garden Green.  *I will reverse that on the next one!!

The sentiment is from Pop of Paradise.  And the background paper is from the In Color paper pack.  Hugs, Fran

You might have seen this card – everywhere!  It uses the new set Marque Messages!  This design was shown OnStage and is so cute and easy.  I did mine on a notecard.

The best thing about this design is that all 3 cards are made from just 3 pieces of scrap card stock.  You simply stamp the design 3 times, cut the different pieces out and reassemble in 3 different color combos.  It’s like a puzzle.

I used Rose Red, Old Olive and Peekaboo Peach. This is going to be a fun one!  Hugs, Fran

Cup Pop Stand

Here’s a card I did for the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. Today  I’ll be using the Cup Pop Stand to create a card.

PIU Cup Pop Stand 01

I started with the Swirly Flourish Stencil and Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words Hello. I die cut 3 of the words and glued them together to get some height.  Create a varied look with the stencil by changing the pressure of your sponge or ink applicator as you move from top to bottom.  Then I splattered over that with dark brown ink and sponged the edges.  Gold foil down the side and gold brads go with the gold filament behind the words.

Here’s the inside. Cut a 4 x 10 3/4 piece of paper and die cut the pop stand on the center fold.  I repeated the sponging with the stencil on just the 2 corners.

The cup has a vellum card stock “swirl of smoke.”

The cup is cut from red polka dot paper twice.  Flip the die for the second cut if your paper is blank or has a different pattern on back. The heart on the cup is from the Hanging Charm Pull Card tied with a little bit of Baker’s Twine.  Cut the saucer from red paper and sponge the design on with red ink. Then die cut the saucer with a circle die.

To hold the Gift Card, I die cut the flourishes from  the Oval Landscape Accordion and glued them down just at the three tips.  It’s so cute – but I ended up using a small glue dot on the card to keep it from slipping during mailing.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Pop It Up Wednesday!

Flower Patch Birthday

Flower Patch 04

This card uses Flower Patch and the matching die, Flower Fair Framelits.  I tried several color combinations – Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party, So Saffron and Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Real Red, Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder and Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango.  The centers are embellished with the Metal Rimmed Pearls.  Can you think of any other good color combos?  Hugs, Fran
