Balloon Shaker

I love shaker cards but have a terrible time deciding how much filler to put in them.  This one is stuffed!  But boy, does it shake!  I used the Balloon Adventure stamp set and matching die and Tasty Treats Specialty paper to make this card.  The Sprinkles Embellishments inside match the paper.  Very fun – if a little too full.  Hugs, Fran

Window Shopping

I’ve been playing with the Window Shopping suite.  These little boxes with all their inserts are really cute – and easy!

This one has a piece of Gold foil in the top.

On this one I made a banner (a bit large!) and did candles on the side.

I used DSP behind the candles and card stock on the  flame.

While I had the stamp set out, I made a card cased from the catalog.  Nice suite and one that will be useful!  Hugs, Fran

Vertical Greetings

 

I meant to do this card in Cucumber Crush – but somehow used Emerald Envy instead!  I used markers to ink up the image from Vertical Greetings using Emerald Envy, Cajun Craze (pot) and Chocolate Chip.  I added some red berries using the Owl  punch and a bit of Dazzling Details.  It’s finished off with some Real Red twine.  Hugs, Fran

Special Reason

A combo of Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Cucumber Crush – using Special Reason from the Occasions Mini.  This is my case of the catalog.  A few changes but nothing way different.  I really like this color combo 🙂  Reminds me that summer is coming up if we can ever just have spring!  I hope you’ll try it!  Hugs, Fran

Sitting Here

Here’s my cat, Max, waiting for you to come sit with him and give him some love!  I stamped this scene from Sitting Here on watercolor paper in Stazon ink and watercolored.  The cat, pillows and pot of plants are stamped separately and fussy cut.

I went around each piece with a black marker and then created the scene.  The top of the card is stamped with the leaves from Sheltering Tree (you could pick any greenery you have) and is on a piece of Calypso Coral Patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases.  Hugs, Fran

Happy Celebrations

Sometimes we just need a cute, quick card for someone.  This one uses the Celebrations Duo embossing folders.  You get two of them – Celebrate and Happy – and there is a matching stamp set called Happy Celebrations,  I used just the Celebrate folder, which de-bosses the paper and stamped some circles around the image in Pool Party, Island Indigo and Crushed Curry.  Add some enamel dots and Bakers Twine and you’re good to go!  Hugs, Fran

Time to Color

Coloring is all the rage right now and Stampin Up has it covered with the very cute Inside the Lines Designer Series paper.  There are 4 different patterns – but it’s only available for one more day!  We did this one at Card Club, colored it with the new Watercolor pencils, and paired it with a sentiment from Falling For You.

We added some gel pen and some Wink of Stella to create these cards but they could be left blank and sent with some colored pencils to someone who likes to color.  That would be fun!  Hugs, Fran

Avant Garden Blue

Here’s a card using Avant Garden that I combined two different cards I saw on Pinterest to create.  One was a sketch and one was these colors and stamps.  I used Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizazz and Soft Sky for the flowers and Daffodil Delight for the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.  I used Wink of Stella on the stamping – just because – and did some background interest with Dazzling Details, some clear elements and candy dots.  The sentiment is from Lift Me Up.  Hugs, Fran
