This card is a re-imagining of this card with some color added! I embossed the Calypso Coral piece using the Petal Burst embossing folder, stamped the flower in Coral and heat embossed a gold greeting. Gold sequins were added to finish it off. It’s an easy card with a nice presentation. Hugs, Fran
This stamp is from a new Stampin Up line called DisINKtive. It’s a Saleabration stamp that is free with a $50 purchase and looks like a photograph when stamped. I stamped it in Smoky Slate and adhered it to a piece of Smoky Slate a little offset. Then I simply stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray and scattered some sequins. Such a simple card! Hugs, Fran
This may well be my favorite Saleabration set – Party Pandas I used these cute little guys to create two shaker cards. There are a few differences (besides the colors!) so let’s take a look at them.
I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to make the openings on both cards. This one is a 4 x 5 1/4 white piece with some Tangerine Tango DSP behind it. The hat, ballon and heart on the envelope were colored with Stampin Blends and the openings were filled with some retired beads and sequins. After I die cut the openings, I put the die back over the opening and used a Tangerine Tango Stampin Write Marker to make a stitched line around the hearts.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
For this card I switched to Calypso Coral and used the Diagonal Stripe stamp to create a tone on tone background. The piece is slightly smaller- 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 – because I wanted to add a black mat to the back. And I ditched the patterned paper on this one and just used white. The Party Pandas will be available on January 4th. Have a favorite? Let me know! Hugs, Fran
Saleabration starts January 3rd and this is one of the choices that is free with a $50 purchase. For this card, I stamped the shoes from Epic Celebration in Momento Tuxedo Black in and colored them in with Stampin Blends. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The guitar card was colored with colored pencils on Crumb Cake card stock. It didn’t really come out like I had imagined in my head – so I added shimmer pen (because that should make it better, shouldn’t[‘t it?) I think I will try it again with the Stampin Blends 🙂 Enjoy! Hugs, Fran
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
This set needs a sentiment that says “just chicken on you!” I used the Woodgrain background from the front and die cut a rectangle through the front panel and the card. I sandwiched a piece of some kind of plumbers tape (I don’t know what it’s really called!) and tucked the chicken in to peek out.
Inside I put a piece of Crushed Curry so the chicken doesn’t get lost.
This set is so much fun! 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
One more Reverse Word – this time pairing it with Everyday Hero. The balloon is from Confetti Celebrations. I stamped the superman, colored with Copics and fussy cut him out. The bottom of the card is stamped (with a mask) over and over and a few of the buildings were quickly colored with some W Copics and little stars stamped in Smoky Slate. The balloon is covered with Crystal Effects. Perfect masculine birthday card! 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
