Paper Pros May Challenge – A Few of My Favorite Things

The Paper Pros are at it again with a new challenge – A Few of My Favorite Things!  One of my favorite things is Karen Burniston’s Heart Pivot die.  Using a new Stamping Up Designer Series paper, Delightful Daisy, I created a Mother’s Day card.  I die cut the heart in Wisteria Wonder and stamped the background with another new stamp, Wood Words, and heat embossed “with love” over the top.

On the inside I repeated the background stamping and stamped the sentiment from the retiring Oh So Succulent, on Whisper White and die cut a banner from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The Pool party strip is embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder and the Wisteria trim is punched with a border punch and placed underneath another strip of the DSP.  The Heart Pivot die is a “forever” die in my collection!

Make sure to check out what the other Pros have created this month!  Hugs, Fran


First Sight

First Sight 01

This is a case of the card on page 36 of the Occasions Mini – First Sight.  To make this card, I stamped the flourish image in Blushing Bride on a Blushing Bride card base.  Then I spritzed it with some shimmer spray (alcohol and shimmer paint. And since I can never stop when spraying stuff, I splattered some gold Encore ink over that 🙂

Using a banner framelit, I stamped half the sentiment on top in Crumb Cake and the rest of the sentiment on the bottom.  The heart is Calypso Coral stamped in Calypso Coral and punched out – with the Mother on a strip.  I wrapped gold thread behind the heart.  The stampin part is a bit fussy – get out your stamp a ma jig – but it’s not hard.  Try it!  Hugs, Fran

Sweet Laughter

Sweet Laughter 01

Sweet Laughter is a Mini Catalog stamp set with some little line drawn images and cute sentiments. I chose to do a clean and simple card for this one using only Whisper White, some Sweet Sadie washi tape and a button.  The image was colored with Blender pens and ink.  I’ve kind of overlooked this set up until now so you might see a few more before Mother’s Day – it’s really cute!  Hugs, Fran

Sweet Laughter 01

I seem to be focusing on laughter this week 🙂  This is the Sweet Laughter set in the Spring Mini.  This clean and simple card is a 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White base with a 3 1/2 x 3 center piece stamped with the image and colored with Copic markers.  I added some Sweet Sadie washi tape and a Subtle button – done!  Clean and simple – and sweet!  Hugs, Fran

Mother’s Love Accordion

Mother's Love 01


Lot’s of new things here!  The stamp set is Mother’s Love and is in the Occasions Mini.  It has great sentiments – and some beautiful flowers.  The paper is the Something Borrowed Designer Series paper (also in the Occasions Mini – page 42 – check it out!  It’s beautiful!)  AND the Katie Label die from Karen Burniston is a wonderful die to showcase all these pretty products!

I even added some of the Sahara Sand Lace Trim – just because it all goes together so well.  Hugs, Fran
