Are you thinking “Valentines” yet? The Sure Do Love You set in the Occasions catalog is perfect for making some quick, but pretty, Valentines. I paired the set with the Painted with Love Specialty paper to make this card. The base is Melon Mambo ( 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 for a top fold card.) The front is Powder Pink and the Painted with Love paper. The little layered squared is Powder Pink and Calypso Coral, die with the Layering Squares framelits. The ribbon is from Saleabration! It’s free with a $50 purchase 🙂 I finished off the card with Metallic Enamel Shapes and Gold Glitter Flakes (from the Occasions catalog.) Hugs, Fran
Something different to show you today – a Fairy Cottage. The cutting file is from SVGCuts and is made using all kinds of patterned paper and lots of little succulents, toadstools and flower. I made this for my soon to be daughter in law for Valentines Day.
The back is open so you can insert lights and the top of the tree house comes off for more lights,
Isn’t it fun? So many little things to look at!
I had a great time putting it together! Hugs, Fran
I needed a funny Valentine for someone special so I decided to use the crazy chicken in Hey Chick (Salebration) to peek out and send my love. (You can click on the picture to make it larger ) This is a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 card with the “love” part done as a shaker. I arranged the letters with a heart from Sweet & Sassy framelits and cut them out of Real Red. The chicken is stamped on the backing of the shaker and a few hearts are attached to the top of the transparency. The letters are filled with sequins. Then I used the left over letters to make this card –
The DSP on both cards is Sending Love from the Occasions Mini. Hugs, Fran
More treats! While I still had my embossing paste out from yesterday’s project, I decided to try to use it on some of these little glassine bags. You have to work quickly on glassine so the paste doesn’t spread. I was still using the Hearts mask and was able to do two bags at a time. Once it was dry, I added a red Glimmer paper “love” and tied it off with some pretty red ribbon. Filled with treats, they look pretty! Hugs, Fran
This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card full of LOVE. Using the Largest Letters Framelits, I cut them out of the Real Red strip and then replaced them with white letters stamped with the line of hearts from Sealed with Love. The “In the Air” is embossed with white embossing powder. The heart border is made using the Love Notes Framelit dies. I cut a sliver of silver Glimmer paper to run through the middle of the hearts. Hugs, Fran
Valentines Day? Yep! This card is made with the new Hexagon Dynamic Textured embossing folder and the “love” from Sunshine Wishes framelits. The heart was was cut from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Glimmer paper. I sponged on ink – Real Red, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette onto water color paper and then embossed it. The love was cut from Black card stock and then fun foam, layered together and covered in Glossy Accents. Very simple. Hugs, Fran
Are you a Paper Pumpkin subscriber? This month’s kit are these cute treat holders! And I’m in love with the cute little Valentine stamps that come with the kit. I arranged my treats in a Berry Basket die – decorated with the Hearts & Stars stencil. These will be fun to hand out next week. Hugs, Fran
I cased the little 2 x 2 box in the Occasions Mini – so cute! I stamped the image in Stazon and added a little heart using the Owl Builder punch. What would we do without that punch?
Then I punched a little bow with the new Bow Builder punch. Good idea – easy to copy – fast to make! Hugs, Fran
