Love You

Valentines Day?  Yep!   This card is made with the new Hexagon Dynamic Textured embossing folder and the “love” from Sunshine Wishes framelits.  The heart was was cut from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Glimmer paper.  I sponged on ink – Real Red, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette onto water color paper and then embossed it.  The love was cut from Black card stock and then fun foam, layered together and covered in Glossy Accents.  Very simple.  Hugs, Fran

Love On Stage

Love & Affection 04











This is a make and take from On Stage using Love & Affection.  It’s a cute card that uses a lot of new product – including the darling embossing folder.  It really shows it off.

It’s a fun folder!  Hugs, Fran

Color Me Acorny

Acorny Thank You 02

















This is a case of a card on page 36 of the new catalog!  Such pretty colors!  I changed up the embossing folder and used the new Floral Affection folder.  The doily is a gold doily – just flipped over to the white side.  The colors are Wild Wasabi, Sweet Sugarplum,  and Pool Party on a Crumb Cake base.  Love these colors 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Picking Flowers

Flower Shop 10















Pick a flower (card!)  Both of these cards use Flower Shop and the same colors.  One background is embossed with the Honeycomb embossing folder and the other

Flower Shop 09
















uses a stencil and Soft Sky ink to create the background.  Which one do you like better?

Hugs, Fran

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

Wondrous Wreath

Wondrous Wreath 01

Here’s a project that I did for the Splitcoast Creative Crew 🙂  The challenge is for the Scrapbook and More Focus: Make a treat and package it. Come play with us!

I used Wondrous Wreath and the new Cafe Bags to make this.  First I ran the bag through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain embossing folder then I stamped the wreath. I punched a tiny hole using the smallest hand held punch to attach the Wooden Essential leaf. All the supplies are listed here.

Wondrous Wreath has a matching die set and markers on the stamps so you can line them up.  It’s very easy to do.  The tag on the bag was made with For All Things which is a beautiful Fall set.  You can play along with all the challenges this month by heading here –
