Here are two cards using Reverse Words (one of the new SAB offerings) and Moon Baby (Occasion Mini.)
I stamped the baby and fussy cut her out. The Hooray is stamped in Pink Pirouette and die cut with a stitched rectangle, placed on a Pink Pirouette stitched rectangle and then all put on a background embossed with the Large Polka Dots embossing folder.
And here’s the baby boy version done in Marina Mist. Hint – if you have trouble fussy cutting the umbrella stick – just cut off the top of the umbrella and then reassemble. Only a few more days to get Reverse Words! Hugs, Fran
I have done something that I hate – no not the card – but I saw this idea somewhere, wrote it down on my grid paper and promptly threw it away. But this card is based on another one! I started with Serene Scenery DSP and die cut a square from the middle. I added a copper foil square behind it and a strip of Whisper white across the card – and a stamped and embossed strip across the square piece. Then I cut a copper foil dragonfly and adhered it with Dimensionals. Isn’t this a great idea for all those pretty papers that you hate to cut up? Hugs, Fran
I recently got some Brusho pigments and wanted to try them. I used Remarkable You heat embossed in white and then applied the pigments and misted them with water. It’s a color explosion!
I embossed the sentiment in white on a piece of Black card stock and tucked the dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits in Tempting Turquoise and vellum behind it. That was fun! Hugs, Fran
Here’s another Perfect Mix card. I found this very retired piece of Tempting Turquoise patterned paper and put it to use. The egg carton image is colored with Copics and one egg is paper Pieced with the reverse of the flower paper and then covered with Crystal Effects. Very easy! Hugs, Fran
Here’s a very simple card for you! I used Perfect Mix from the Occasions catalog to make this birthday card. I stamped the mixer twice – once on Pacific Pint and once on the Whisper White and then fussy cut the blue one and popped it up over the sentiment. I went over the lines on the mixer with a silver gel pen. The background patterned paper is from Party Animals DSP. Hugs, Fran
One more in this style – Nailed It. I used the Serene Scenery DSP for the card, stamped and die cut the hammer and popped it up on the panel. Funny how this was my least favorite of this style card and one of my daughter’s favorite! The Congrats was stamped on the inside. Always great to have some more masculine cards around. Hugs, Fran
I’ve been doing a lot of this style card recently! This time I used Lift Me Up to create a birthday card. The balloon and clouds are die cut with the matching framelits and the Salebration paper Carried Away was used for the card. (Actually the dots behind the ballon are Mint Macaron from the In Colors paper pack). The clouds are stamped in Smoky Slate and the balloon in Night of Navy. Hugs, Fran
Make a Medallion is another stamp set you can choose as a Salebration freebie starting tomorrow. For this card I stamped it multiple times in Versamark on Whisper White and then heat embossed it white embossing powder. (You could also use clear) Sponge on Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party from bottom to top and add a sentiment strip from One Big Meaning. Add a little bit of 3/8 Metallic Ribbon and some sequins and mount on some Heavy White card stock. Hugs, Fran
So after I did party balloons with the Reverse Word set, I decided to do hot air balloons. The balloon is die cut using the Up & Away Thinlits and the background paper is the Salebration paper Carried Away. The Reverse Words is stamped in Mint Macaron. I’m sure you can create a prettier hot air balloon! Hugs, Fran
