For the Birds

For the Birds 01

This simple card was made using the Stylish Stripes embossing folder on each end of the card stock so that there is an empty spot to decorate in the middle.  It was inspired by one on Pinterest done by Kerry Bunting.  She used a different EF and stamp set – but the idea is the same.  For the Birds would make a cute set of cards using this technique.

I masked off the words, stamped the image and then stamped the words to the side and colored the image with Blendabilities.  Hugs, Fran

Four Corners

You’ve seen this one before but yesterday was class 7 in my Blendies classes and this was the sample.. Wow, these ladies have gotten very good with their Blendies!  I thought I’d show you 4 more variations on this card.

Corner Garden 02

This was done in “sepia” tones using Copics.

Love is Kindness

Love is Kindness 02

This card is the new Tags Pivot Card from Karen Burniston.  I paired it up with Stampin Up’s Love is Kindness in the Occasions Mini.  The card base is stamped with the Dictionary background stamp and the image was stamped, colored with Blendabilities and fussy cut.  A little Typeset Designer Series paper and some Chevron ribbon finishes off this card.

There is a little, tiny piece of one of the flowers that was added to the front to keep the bouquet full.  Hugs, Fran

Time to Celebrate

Time to Clelbrate 03

Time to Celebrate is one of the hostess choices in the Occasions Mini catalog.  A friend of mine and I love these images and she “challenged” me to make something with them.  I did some very clean and simple cards – simply stamping the images in Momento Tux Black ink and coloring them Blendabilities.  The only addition are some Candy Dots in the corner.

So there you have it!  Clean and simple!  Hugs, Fran

A Happy Thing 02

Love, love, love this little bird in the Saleabration set – A Happy Thing!  I used Blendies to color him, cut him out,  and set me on the Hardwood background.  The design is the same as this card.  Hope you’re enjoying the Holidays – I am!  But I’m glad to get back in my craft room too!  Hugs, Fran

This beautiful set is called Indescribable Gift.  I stamped the flower twice and colored the background and flower using Blendabilities. The ribbon goes through a slit in the front, cut with a craft knife.
