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
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.”
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
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
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 🙂
As you open the card, there is a mechanism (optional) that pops up so your card becomes even more interactive! Too cute!
The paper is from the Saleabration pack – Best Year Ever. Perfect for water, snow or sky. You need some!! Hugs, Fran
It IS a Big Day in Stampin land! Today starts Saleabration and the Occasion Mini catalog! For every $50 you spend you get to select a free product from the Saleabration Catalog. This Saleabration set is called Big Day. I made up the sample shown in the mini with a change or two to make it my own. Colored with Blendabilities, it’s a sparkling wish for a happy birthday. I love this time of year! Hugs, Fran
Love, love, love this little bird in the Saleabration set – A Happy Thing! I used Blendies to color him, cut him out, and set me on the Hardwood background. The design is the same as this card. Hope you’re enjoying the Holidays – I am! But I’m glad to get back in my craft room too! Hugs, Fran
A Happy Thing will be available for FREE during Saleabration – January 6-March 31! For every $50 you spend, you will get to pick a free item from the Salebration catalog. It’s a really cute set, especially for Blendabilities. Here I stamped the image 3 times and colored it with Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi Blendies. The background is done with Harwood. Then I added some Dazzling Details to make the lemons sparkle! Hugs, Fran
