This cute accordion card is a new die by Karen Burniston. The card base is the Charm Accordion and it’s 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches and the die cuts both pieces of this accordion at the same time. The squirrel is one of her new Woodland Animals (there’s a squirrel, fox and raccoon!) The little packages at the bottom are from the Birthday Charms die set.
The squirrel is two pieces – the body and the tummy. The arms are free so it was east to add a package. The face is drawn on using the openings in the die.
Here’s the inside. The sentiment is from SU’s Painter’s Palette. See the birthday hat? It’s held onto the smaller piece with a jump ring die 🙂 Cute!
The packages are all from the the Birthday Charms too. The entire set is darling! You can find more information about the dies here. Hugs, Fran
Sometimes we just need a cute, quick card for someone. This one uses the Celebrations Duo embossing folders. You get two of them – Celebrate and Happy – and there is a matching stamp set called Happy Celebrations, I used just the Celebrate folder, which de-bosses the paper and stamped some circles around the image in Pool Party, Island Indigo and Crushed Curry. Add some enamel dots and Bakers Twine and you’re good to go! Hugs, Fran
This set is Birthday Blast and it has not seen as much love as it should have. Not only is it really cute – it has a matching die:) This card is pretty much a case of the catalog done in Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. Hugs, Fran
I was sorting through some old punches and thought I’d try this card. It’s a 3 x 8 card and you can make an envelope for it using the Envelope Punch Board. The colors from left to right are Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Cucumber Crush, Pear Pizazz , Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, and Real Red. I drew a straight line across the card stock and lined them up. That’s it! Now to search through the rest of my punches and see which other ones will work with this style card! Try it! Hugs, Fran
Just a quick post! I really liked last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. This long pull cards hold gift cards and the sentiment continues as you pull the slider piece down. Very cute! Hugs, Fran
It’s a colorful cake! I love how this set – Cake Crazy – has patterns that work together or separately. I used the colors in the Party Animal Designer Series paper to create the cake. And lots of Dazzling Details 🙂 Hugs, Fran
This is a notecard (3 1/2 x 5) covered with Succulent Garden DSP and using the Big on Birthdays stamp set. Very simple and so cute! Just stamp the ribbon above the sentiment and you’re good to go! Hugs, Fran
Pay no attention to the color cast on this photo. I changed my battery on my camera and ……well, I’m not sure! But her’s a trio-fold card using the Hardwood background and Circle of Spring stamp sets.
The wreath is on the left panel and as you open it ……
You have a pretty inside to write your greeting. Hugs, Fran
Here’s another Perfect Mix card. I found this very retired piece of Tempting Turquoise patterned paper and put it to use. The egg carton image is colored with Copics and one egg is paper Pieced with the reverse of the flower paper and then covered with Crystal Effects. Very easy! Hugs, Fran
Here’s a very simple card for you! I used Perfect Mix from the Occasions catalog to make this birthday card. I stamped the mixer twice – once on Pacific Pint and once on the Whisper White and then fussy cut the blue one and popped it up over the sentiment. I went over the lines on the mixer with a silver gel pen. The background patterned paper is from Party Animals DSP. Hugs, Fran
