Shake & Celebrate

Shake & Celebrate 01

It’s almost time for the Holiday Mini catalog to be released!  This little card is made with the Shake & Celebrate set for the sentiment. Since this set is photopolymer, it’s easy to bend it slightly on the block to fit it in the Bunch of Banners die.  The star is cut with with the Star die and outlined with a gel pen.  I used the Cable Knit Dynamic embossing folder for the background and some burlap behind the star.  The little berries are pearls colored with an alcohol marker.  Very simple but very sweet.  Hugs, Fran

Cookie Cutter Pop It Ups

Cookie Cutter Christmas 02

I’ve combined some of my favorite things on this card – Christmas, Pop It Ups and Gingerbread Men!  The front of this card uses some of the new Stampin Up Holiday Mini sets – Candy Cane Christmas and Cookie Cutter Christmas and a new Pop It Ups die – Anita Frames Pop It Ups!

Isn’t the Anita Frames Pop It Ups fun?  And it’s really easy to assemble – love that!  My gingerbread men are enjoying it too 🙂  They come with a matching punch that made this card super easy to put together!  Hugs, Fran

Hang Your Stockings

Hang Your Stockings 01

This is one of the cards we are making this morning in my Christmas Stamp a Stack.  It uses the soon to be released Hang Your Stockings and matching die.  The colors are Emerald Envy, Real Red and Mint Macaron – which I wasn’t sure about but is very pretty.  There is a sweet holly trinket attached to the top of the stocking.  The stocking dies will be a favorite!  Hugs, Fran

Christmas Pines

Christmas Pines 01

Christmas Pines is a huge set – 22 pieces – with a matching die!  There are several different sizes of pine boughs and pine cones.  It also has some very pretty sentiments.  This simple card also uses a cut out from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series paper.  Hugs, Fran

Holiday Mini Sneak Peek Twinkle Trees

Twinkle Trees 01

Coming September 1! This sweet tree is from a set called Twinkle Trees.  It has several stamps that create a kind of Bokeh effect when used together.  My card is done on a notecard (3 1/2 x 5) and uses Emerald Envy, Mint macaron, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler – and sequins!  🙂  I can’t wait to show you more samples of this set!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 2

PIU Christmas front

Everyone is coming for Christmas!  Today my card features all the farm critters (plus Jolly) in true Home for Christmas style.  This 6 x 6 card is big – but so’s the family 🙂

PIU Christmas left front

Brownie is sporting a Santa-stash and glasses.  Cheeper is holding a candy cane.  And Jolly is bringing a present of cheese.  To attach the characters, the bottom layer (Brownie) is flat on the card.  The next layer is (Cheepers) is attached to Brownie.  And then Jolly is up on pop dots.  This gives it looks of dimension without being crazy.

PIU Christmas right front

William is helping with the garland and Snowball is wearing his Santa hat.  All the presents are popped up. The sentiment is from Project Life by Stampin Up Seasonal Snapshot 2015.

Inside, Cocoa the Horse is already home!  The garland  – which is pieces from the wreath in the Sleigh Gift Card die set – surrounds the Agatha Edge at the top.

Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 1

This month the Karen Burniston Design Challenge is “Home for the Holidays.”

PIU House Pivot 02

For my first card, I went with the House Pivot die and did a triple pivot.  The papers are EDC Shimmer Sheets on the left and Stampin Up’s Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that the two greens matched perfectly! Since each paper is delicate, I started with a white card base and adhered them to that.  And yes, on the foil vellum I added the tiniest bit of glue under each tree and let it dry!  It’s Christmas!  The greeting is Lots of Joy.  The bottom “snow” is EDC Cool White glitter.

It’s very shiny!  That’s my reflection in the center 🙂  On the inside we find the neighbors – Jolly and Jolly – singing Christmas carols!

The neighborhood has an embossed tree.  Very fancy for these parts!

Rockin’ Around the Sleigh

PIU IPhone Sleigh 01

I’m still using sparkly, shiny card stock!  I need a gift card holder for the season – always need them – so I pulled out some Brushed Silver card stock, some retired silver embossed Designer Series paper and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups dies and made this one.

PIU IPhone Sleigh 01 open

Jolly the Mouse and Rudy the Reindeer are rockin’ out as they help Santa load the Pop It Up Sleigh with gift card holder!  The sleigh is Red Foil and Red Glimmer paper.  Rudy’s IPod is hand cut and the little records are circle punches.  The nice thing about this Pop It Up is it has a little side Pop It Up stand for Rudy.

Jolly has his Santa glasses on 🙂  Rudy’s nose is coated with Crystal Effects.  Lots of shine – lots of fun!  Hugs, Fran
