Polka Dot Pieces

Polka Dot Pieces 01

Here’s my last catalog case (for now!) from page 139, using Polka Dot Pieces.  The catalog did some sewing on the bottom of the card.  I chose to machine stitch a piece of Craft card stock and then adhere it to the front.  Instead of just a piece of washi tape, I put mine across the entire front.  The ribbon on my card was Blushing Bride 1/4 cotton that I ran over my Cantaloupe Crisp ink pad.  I should have started with Whisper White ribbon – but the Blushing Bride worked.  I think I’m going to LOVE this ribbon!


Stamp Set – Polka Dot Pieces

Card stock – Crumb Cake, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloup, Gold Gimmer, Whisper White, Gold Vellum, In Colors DSP

Ink – Baked Brown Sugar

I love the combo of looks and feels on this cards.  Hugs, Fran

Mosaic Beauty

Mosaic Madness 05

This catalog case is from page 163.  I stuck to the card shown with just a few exceptions.  First of all, I embossed the Shimmery White card stock backwards.  I’d like to say I did it on purpose, but….well….you know how it goes!  So I just went with it.  The funniest part of this story is that my embossing folder had been used repeatedly with Versamark and glitter – which wasn’t completely cleaned off – so it left a beautiful soft glitter/sparkle all over the front of the card!  Love it when that happens!!

I really like how soft this card looks – though I’m not sure I can recreate the sparkle again.  Hugs, Fran


Hot Diggity Dog Catalog Mix

Hot Diggity Dog 02

This is a semi – case card from page 109 of the catalog.  That card features Just Sayin’ – I mixed it up by featuring Hot Diggity Dog instead.  Instead of embossing the card front, I used a separate layer (5 1/2 x 3 3/4) of Smokey Slate, embossed it and adhered it to the front.  I tried a Whisper White circle for the little puppy but ended up using Crushed Curry for more color.


Stamp Set – Hot Diggity Dog

Card stock – Smokey Slate,Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush, vellum card stock, Back to Black DSP

Ink – Memento Tux Black

Etc – Tiny Triangle embossing folder, Word Bubble framelits, 2 1/2 circle punch, Itty Bitty Accent punch


This color combo makes me happy!  Hugs, Fran

Do you like Minions?  This is what I thought of when I first saw the new stamp set What’s Your Type!  He’s stamped except for his eyes, which are punched.  I stamped the body and arms separately and then put it together on the card.
