Punched Birthday

I was sorting through some old punches and thought I’d try this card.  It’s a 3 x 8 card and you can make an envelope for it using the Envelope Punch Board. The  colors from left to right are Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Cucumber Crush, Pear Pizazz , Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, and Real Red.  I drew a straight line across the card stock and lined them up.  That’s it!  Now to search through the rest of my punches and see which other ones will work with this style card!  Try it!  Hugs, Fran

Something Pretty

Just going through some of the stuff in my craft room and I came across these stickers from Elizabeth Crafts and thought I’d better use them.  I made the card with Karen Burniston’s Spiral Pull card die and used a retired SU stencil for the background.  I added the dots with a white gel pen and white embossed the sentiment – Love & Affection – on to some black card stock.

Here’s the inside…………and another card!

Same idea – just Calypso Coral for the card stock.

You should be warned that I found a lot of these stickers!  You might see some more designs soon!  Hugs, Fran

Get Well Hero

This pretty Get Well Soon card is made with the My Hero stamp set – which benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  The raindrops are these little plastic thingies that go in the bottom of vases 🙂  These are flat on the back and are easy to use.  The paper is Blooms & Bliss DSP and the card is tied off with some Mint Macaron ribbon.  Hugs, Fran

Moon Baby

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

Serene Dragonfly

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

Detailed Floral Thinlit

I did some card stock inlay with the Detailed Floral Thinlit and created 3 cards.  I die cut the Thinlit once in Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron and 3 times in Whisper White and Pear Pizazz.  Pop out all the pieces on the White but leave the colors in the their places. Back the Whisper White pieces on a double sided adhesive sheet and fill in the design with the colors.  I use a paper piercer to pick up the pieces.  It seems tedious, but once you get going it is pretty fast.  Once all the pieces are in place, use the die that cuts out the top of the design (that squiggly line piece!) and you are ready to make your cards.  The more colors you use, the more cards you can make!

This is a Heavy White 4 1/4 x 11 base

This is on a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 So Saffron base.

And this one is on a 4 1/4 x 11 Pink Pirouette card.  They are stamped with sentiments from Flourishing Phrases andI tied  with Blushing Bride ribbon.  Hope you try it!  Hugs, Fran

Balloon Adventure Shutter Card

I’m working on shutter cards – because I usually get stuck on an idea!  This on uses Balloon Adventure and the matching die set.  The sentiment was punched out with the Duet Banner punch.  The paper is Party Animals – one of my favorites!

Inside is the stamped balloon.  For this one I punched the ends of the shutter part with a circle punch.  It worked fairly well – so I might have to try more shapes  Hugs, Fran
