Just in case you’re celebrating National Bathtub Day tomorrow, I thought I’d share a card! The challenge is to make a card for “another” holiday in December – and I chose this one. Using the Bokeh technique, I created a bubbly background with Island Indigo, Marina Mist and Pool Party inks. The sentiment is from Amazing Birthday. To make the bubbles on the tag, I used my Stampin Mist and Dazzling Details bottles as stamps. Then, since it was out, I added Dazzling Details to some of the bubbles.
The inside sentiment was created in My Digital Studio. To play along with the Creative Crew, upload your own “holiday” card using the keyword CCREW1214HF CreativeCrew SUO. To see all the projects for this month, head over to the Splicoast Creative Crew Gallery. Hugs, Fran
The Designer Challenge for Karen Burniston continues with “white” – white as snow. I chose to use the Evergreen Pivot die and do a Triple Pivot Card Technique. The front of this card uses several different embossing folders, Karen’s Agatha Edges die and Stampin UP’s snowflakes found in the Frosted Sequins.
It’s so hard to see white on white in a photo!
The sentiment is from Beauty of the Season.

The fourth challenge this month for the Creative Crew at Splitcoast is packaging. I chose the Decorative Window Gift Box with a wreath over the opening. The “ribbon” is a strip of card stock wrapped all the way around. I didn’t want the box to collapse so I lined the bottom with Real Red and make a punched doughnut to cover the opening on the inside.
Stamp Sets – Wondrous Wreath, Merry Stars
Card stock – Real Red, Whisper White
Ink – Old Olive, Garden Green, Real Red
Etc – Decorative Windows Gift Box, Wondrous Wreath Framelits, 2 1/2 and 1 3/4 circle punches
Can’t wait to fill this box! Hugs, Fran
It suddenly turned Fall around here this weekend! A perfect time for Karen Burniston’s Halloween challenge – and a great time to start creating those spooky creations. I used the Accordion Circle die with the solid edge and the new Tee Hee Hee set from the Stampin Up Holiday Mini. On the front, the cauldron, bubbling away. (Those bubbles are some old floral/vase fillers)
Do you think the witch was doing her laundry before the big day? Or just conjuring up her spooky attire?
Stamp Set – Tee Hee Hee
Card stock – Basic Black, Whisper White, Back to Black DSP
Ink – Memento Tux Black, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz

There will be lots of spooky inspiration on Karen’s Facebook page. Grab your broom and head over to see what the other designers have created! Hugs, Fran
This card is for the Splitcoast September Creative Crew challenge to focus on the Typeset Designer Series paper. I embossed the Very Vanilla with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake, On the Typeset panel I sponged and added my sentiment (heat embossed) and flowers from Flower Shop. Then I splattered Espresso ink on the card by tapping an aqua painter against my bone folder.
