Paper Pros Challenge – Halloween

Today is the Paper Pros Challenge and it’s Halloween! ¬†The first thing I thought of when I saw Stampin Up’s Season to Sparkle was The Phantom of the Opera ūüôā ¬†So here’s my Phantom card. ¬†The card is a 5 x 7 and has a circle die cut from the front. ¬†The chandelier ¬†is die cut twice – once for the outside (which is mostly trimmed away) and one for the inside. ¬†I covered the chandelier with Glossy Accents and sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds. ¬†The jewel border was die cut, colored with Copics and adhered to the top. The graveyard scene is from Karen Burniston’s Halloween Scene die. ¬†First I stamped the Basic Gray card stock using the Marbled background stamp, then I die cut it. ¬†The sentiment is embossed in white on black card stock.

On the inside I used Karen Burniston’s Katherine Label die so the chandelier swings above the cemetery as it’s opening. ¬†The little spiders dangle as it moves. ¬†The creates are an Art Impressions stamp – Spooktacular – colored with Copies and fussy cut. ¬†Make sure you check out all the other Halloween creations! ¬†Hugs, Fran

Amazing Rocky

PIU Rocky the Crab 02

Guess what I watched last night?  The opening ceremonies of the Olympics!  And it inspired me to make this card.  Whoever was the first person to figure out how to make the flag using the Swirly Bird dies is a genius and I salute you!  I used it for the front of my patriotic card.

Inside I used Karen Burniston’s Cake Pop It Up die to make a platform for Rocky – who has clearly won the gold! ¬†The bottom of the stand is just covered with a piece of Real Red. The sentiment is from Banners for You with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

The Olympic circles are and medal are punches and circle dies. ¬†(The punch for the circles is the 1 1/4″ with a circle die to the outside.) ¬†Doesn’t he look happy to win! ¬†Hugs, Fran
