Fun, messy times in the craft room! I used a piece of watercolor paper for this Swirly Bird card and stamped it in Peek a boo Peach, Blushing Bride, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum. Then I watercolored all over the piece to soften and blend the colors. Splatter the colors over the finish piece and once it dries (important – let it dry!) I stamped the sentiment in Stazon and some more swirls in Stazon and Tangerine Tango. I also added some die cut swirls. To finish it off, I added the washi tape (told you I was using it!) to the side.
And sequins – always add sequins! Hugs, Fran
You’ve probably seen this design all over the place – cause it’s cute! 🙂 This uses more of the Swirly Bird stamp set and die and this time I inset the die pieces. By using the positive piece I was able to quickly place the negative pieces. I used the Hello You Thinlit covered in Crystal Effects for the Hello and Crazy about You to finish it off. And sequins – lots of sequins! Some things just need to be repeated. Hugs, Fran
I’m going to share some Swirly Bird cards over the next few days. This one has a slice down the middle to show the card stock underneath. It came about when I couldn’t find any matching ribbon in the size I wanted! The colors here are Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry. To do this design, I just cut the Whisper White piece 1/4″ smaller than I wanted the front to be, stamped away and then sliced the paper underneath the sentiment. When I layered it on the Mint card stock, there is a 1/4″ space showing. I adhered it flat to the card stock and popped it up on the card front.
For this one, I only subtracted an 1/8″ and used Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry. Then I popped the stamped pieces up on the Crushed Curry and adhered it to the front. Slightly different looks. Hugs, Fran
Day 2 of the Pop It Ups Designer Challenge brings me to Father’s Day. I used Karen Burniston’s Circle Accordion Album and Stampin Up’s Swirly Bird to make a fun Father’s Day card for any sea loving dad!
I also used Stampin Up”s Guy Greetings for the middle of my card. I love how the Ring Album die lets you chose the length of your card! Hope you enjoy this nautical look. Make sure to check out Karen’s blog to see the other summer cards! Hugs, Fran
Ahoy, stampin friends! Swirly has a cute, little boat image and the matching die makes waves! I chose Dapper Denim, Real Red and Daffodil Delight for this scene. The bottom of the red mat and Whisper White piece were also cut with the wavy die. Just line it up below the piece you want to cut and it makes a nice curve. I embossed the sentiment in white. Hugs, Fran
This set is addicting! Here’s a sweet card – design copied from an On Stage display board and colors totally changed. I chose Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo with a touch of Peak-a-boo Peach. Linen thread is wrapped around the circle for a nest. The swirled background paper is from the stamp set. Hugs, Fran
