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
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 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
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
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
