Project Life Stamp Your Own Cards

PL 03

Have you used the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelit die yet?  (135785)  These dies are fun to make your own Project Life cards.  For this card, I used the Snapshot die – because photos are what it’s all about – and created a little card that fits perfectly into a pocket on my page.

Stamp Sets – Snapshot, Dotty Angles, Project Life Remember This

Card stock – Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay

Ink – Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush, Memento Tux Black

Etc – Project Life Cards & Labels Framelit, Arrow punch, Candy Dots, Crystal Effects

You can keep to the color pallet in the card sets or create your own.  Hugs, Fran

Spooky Holiday Home

Holiday Home 01

Here’s another Halloween idea using Karen Burniston’s House Pivot die and Stampin Up’s Holiday Home.  The tree and clouds are from Karen’s Garden Bench set.  (The clouds are really suppose to be snow)

Holiday Home 01 inside

The sentiment inside is from Ghoulish Greetings.  Lots of black – making it hard to see the details in the photograph.

Mingle All the Way

Mingle All the Way 01

My favorite new thing in the Holiday Mini?  The Gift Box Punch Board of course!  This wonderful tool makes the cutest boxes is many sizes – the largest being 4 x 4.  Here I used the new Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series paper to create a Christmas box.  The paper is really heavy – perfect for these boxes! Around the sides I added trees.  There is a new punch in the mini that makes trees – but these were made with the banner punch.  I topped it off with the new Mingle All the Way stamp set and the Banner Framelits.


Stamp Set – Mingle All the Way

Card stock – Under the Tree DSP, Whisper White. Garden Green DSP, Not Quite Navy

Ink – Jet Black Stazon

Etc – Stampin Write markers (Real Red, Garden Green, Not Quite Navy) Gift Box Punch Board, Pennant punch, Banner Framelits, Cherry Cobbler Linen ribbon, Linen thread

Don’t forget that you still have 5 days left to join Stampin Up and get $150 of product for $99!  That’s a great deal!  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

Oh My Goodies

Oh My Goodies 01

This card features the new  Striped Scallop Framelit and the really cute Oh My Goodies stamp set.  The framelit is very easy to use but you need to put wax paper between your die and the card stock.  Then you can gently pull it away.  (If you don’t use the was paper it will still come apart – just not as easily!)  I embossed the sentiment with Basic Black embossing powder and die cut it with the Modern Deco Framelits.  The strip down the side is the Sweet Sadie washi tape over some Basic Black card stock.  Use your bone folder to burnish it down.  Add some Glimmer paper stars and you’re ready to go!


Stamp set – Oh My Goodies

Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer paper

Ink – Versamark

Etc – Striped Scallop framelit, Modern Deco Framelit, star punch, Sweet Sadie washi tape, Black embossing powder


I am in the process of having my blog moved (by Angel Elmer!) from one platform to another so if things seem a bit wonky, this is why.  (Not to mention, I’m learning a new system!)  Hugs, Fran
