Counting the Years

Number of Years 03

This card is made with the Large Number Framelits dies and a new Saleabration set coming out of the 15th of this month – Party Pants.  The 1,3 and 5 are die cut and colored underneath and the 2 and 4 are popped up.

Number of Years 03 side

Then I added lots of Candy Dots!  Inspired by one I saw online (I think it was Mama Elephant) that used little numbers, I knew I could make this with the Large Numbers (just fewer numbers.)  I think this would make a cute kiddos card or switch up the numbers, have it say 29 – and send it to me 🙂  Hugs, Fran

There are some new things coming out after that but if you want these, you need to hurry 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Birthday Blooms

Birthday Blooms 02

Birthday Blooms and Timeless Textures – both in the upcoming mini catalog – are so pretty together!  I used Smokey Slate, Basic Gray and Archival Black to create the background.  The flower was stamped in Stazon on watercolor paper and watercolored with an aquapainter and ink pads in Blushing Bride and Garden Green.  After it dried, I used my Wink Of Stella clear to sparkle the entire flower.  I got carried away and added Dazzling Details in the center of the flower and around the highlights 🙂  These stamps will be available on the 5th!  Hugs, Fran

Happy New Year

SAB Hello 02

Happy 2016!  Let’s start the New Year with a Sale a bration card.  This is Hello and it’s available free with a $50 purchase from January 5 – February 15.  The little flowers are from another SAB set called Botanicals For You.  It’s available from January 5 – March 31.  Check those dates!  There are some products available for a limited time during the limited time sale!  I wanted to do a multi-colored Hello, but didn’t have a multicolored pad.  So I inked the stamp up with Lost Lagoon and then used a sponge to sponge on Blackberry Bliss from one side, letting it blend as it reached half way.  The colors are taken from another free SAB product, Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.  Lots of freebies going on here!

Best wishes for the New Year!  Hugs, Fran

Goodbye 2015

PIU Farm Animals all front

It is true that the older I get, the faster the years fly by!  This has been a fun year – full of Stampin Up, Pop It Ups, Copics, 3-D and lots and lots (and lots) of paper.  Thought I’d share a few favorites from 2015 and get ready for 2016.  The card above was a favorite Pop It Ups.  Love the animals – love creating scenes.  Love what’s coming 🙂

2CuteInk Scarecrow 01

I’ve had fun with my Copic markers.  The image above is form 2CuteInk.  I’ve traveled to classes, work online over at Kit and Clowder, and just really enjoy the “coloring craze!”

Creative Circle September 2015

Then there’s 3-D with the Creative Circle.  These have been lots of fun and there’s more to look forward to in 2016.

And FRIENDS!  That is what has made this year the best!  All the people who play with me in my classroom and all the people I play with online.  That’s the best of 2015.

So looking forward to 2016.  SAB starts soon – the best fun of Stampin UP!

SAB Hello 02

Wishing you the best of times in the New Year!  Hugs, Fran

Berry Basket

Butterfly Basics 06

This is a new die in the Mini Catalog called Berry Basket.  It’s a Bigz die and makes a lovely basket that is a nice size for all kinds of things.  To do this basket I adhered a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Whisper White and Best Year Ever Designer Series paper together and run it through the Big Shot Whisper White side down.  You need to do this twice so you have 2 pieces.  Assembly is simple and the basket is very sturdy when assembled.  I added half a Doily, a Coastal Cabana butterfly from the Butterfly Framelits and a Calypso Coral stamped from the Butterfly Basics set and die cut.  The center is a Calypso Coral pom-pom.  I assembled my basket using the hand-held stapler.

Still snowed in with more snow coming tomorrow.  Going. Stir. Crazy.  Hugs, Fran

Funky Cakes Big Day

SAB Big Day 03

Sparkly, birthday fun!  This is the Sale-a-bration set, Big Day, combined with some EDC Peel Offs called Funky Cakes – and lots of glitter- on a Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Rectangular Accordion die and Oval Accordion die.  The paper is Birthday Bash Specialty paper and all the colors are taken from this color combo.  I colored the cake with Blendabilities and Copics. I masked off half the sentiment, stamped it twice, and popped up the “celebrate.”

SAB Big Day 03 open

Bright and happy!  The Oval Accordion has the rest of the sentiment from the front.  (Again, mask off and stamp)  Looks like a party to me!  Hugs, Fran

Celebrating Birthdays

Celebrate Today 01

We stamped a lot of birthday cards yesterday!  This one was inspired by one done by MandyPandy on Splitcoast.  I loved the angle on her card – and though I changed quite a bit about it – I kept the general layout.  And for yesterday we changed the Candy Dots to Salebration buttons!  Hugs, Fran

Sweet Valentine

Hey Valentine 01

I love this Valentine set from the Occasions Mini – Hey Valentine!  For this card, I colored the fish with my Blendabilities and used Karen Burniston’s new Rectangular Pull Card for the card.  The “wave” edge is her new Beach Edges. The glasses on the yellow fish are filled with Crystal Effects 🙂

Hey Valentine 01 opening

As you open the card, there is a mechanism (optional) that pops up so your card becomes even more interactive!  Too cute!

Hey Valentine 01 detail

The paper is from the Saleabration pack – Best Year Ever.  Perfect for water, snow or sky. You need some!!  Hugs, Fran
