Crazy for Challenges Summer Fun

I was asked to be a guest designer for Crazy 4 Challenges this month and the first challenge is Summer Fun.  What is more fun than beach time?  Using Seaside Shore and Karen Burniston’s Katherine Label die, I created an underwater scene.  The background is done with Distressed Oxide inks and the fish are colored with Copic markers.  Nuvo Jewel drops create the bubbles.  The frame around the window opening is stamped with Playful Backgrounds and the acetate is dry embossed with the Seaside embossing folder.

Can you see the waves?  (Kind of hard to photograph!)

Here’s the inside scene.  Be sure to check out the challenge and share your Summer Fun card!  Hugs, Fran

Crazy 4 Challenges All White

PIU C4C All White 01

I am the guest player at Crazy 4 Challenges this month and the theme for today is “Don’t Wear White after Labor Day!” So we were challenged to make an all white card 🙂  I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base (5 1/2 x 11)  and embossed the background layer with Stampin Up’s Gently Falling embossing folder.  The beautiful layered sleigh from Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Sleigh Gift Card Holder and some snow flakes from her All Season Tree.

Inside is a winter white scene adding in  Pop It Ups Iron Fence and Holiday House. The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s new Holly Berry Happiness

It’s hard to see the sparkle but trust me, it’s there!  I went kind of crazy with the glitter!

All the Crazies have created beautiful white cards so make sure to check them out!  And let me know if you follow the “don’t wear white” rule.  (I do – at least with shoes and purses!)  Have a great day – Hugs, Fran
