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

Does it feel like Deja vu? This is the same card from yesterday – just straightened up and popped up. This time I fussy cut the balloons (there is a punch for balloons – I just forgot!) and used the die for the ribbons. Then the balloons are popped up with Dimensionals. Now you decide! This one –
or this one –
Starting on the February 21 there are 3 more Saleabration items to pick – Glimmer paper (!) and 2 stamp sets. This is one of the upcoming sets called Reverse Words. The two stamps say “hooray” and “cheers.” I paired it with Balloon Adventures to make this card. The base is Tempting Turquoise and the colors are Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. I added some sequins and drew the lines with a marker. Hugs, Fran
I’ve been cleaning my stamp supplies and came across this stencil that I think was a freebie in a magazine. I sponged it with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise. Then I stamped the girl over the stenciled paper in Versafine and embossed it with clear embossing powder. To make the girl stand out a bit I painted over her with Clear Wink of Stella.
The hint of sparkle gives her just enough …..something…..to stand out. Sparkle? I used my Signo gel pen to add some accents around her. I am hooked on this color combo for the moment! Hugs, Fran
It’s a redo (with maybe another one coming soon!) of this card. So in case you can’t tell, it’s meant to have the feel of a postcard. I drew the box around the stamped images and used an old postage punch to make the stamp. The sentiment was done with a rotary stamp and the images are colored with Copic markers. This time I only put Crystal Effects on the beach ball and the sunglasses. So maybe next I’ll combine the redo of this card with the die cut on the old card and see where that takes me! Hugs, Fran
This is one of the hostess sets in the Occasions Mini – Thankful Life. I paired it with A Little Foxy DSP and made some cards.
This stamp is photopolymer so it’s very easy to match up the designs. One stamp, one stack of DSP – 3 cards. Hugs, Fran
It’s dark and dreary here so a sunny card makes my heart happy! This is Day at the Beach colored with Copic markers and masked all over the place! I used post it notes to mask off each piece and then colored away – eventually covering most of the images with Crystal Effects. The die is Sunshine Sayings. I’ll be adding to the card in the future! Hugs, Fran
Live, Laugh, Love – it’s almost Valentine Day! This sampler uses all kinds of hearts and stamps to create a keepsake for someone special of for YOU! Each square is the largest stitched frame die. I’ll try to list all the products I used below. Hugs, Fran
Monster hugs! This little monster from Yummy in My Tummy is holding a string of Valentines and is on an action wobbler (like this monster) to greet you. The sentiment is from Falling for You. It’s hard to see, but background is the Falling Petals embossing folder. Hugs, Fran
