Card Ideas: Framelit Openings

We had such a good time at our Stamp Divas meeting last night! (My team meets to talk business, learn techniques, share ideas and create projects once a month — just a perk of being in my downline.)

We did four projects based on the very first presentation last Saturday at the Chattanooga Regional meeting. Here's the original project:

HappyBirthday.Template

The presentor ran the card base through the Big Shot with a Framelits die, added Designer Series paper behind the opening and used the cutout piece inside. She finished it with a tag to go on the front and embellished with a bow and brad.

So, using that card as a template, we did two cards and two mini cards.

This one uses the same Framelits die, but we used the card in a vertical format.

The next card is the same format but with a very different look…we've flipped it horizontally and used a different Framelits shape.

GraduationMini_092812ButterflyMini_092812Two quick 3" x 3" mini notes — suitable as gift tags — use the same idea, but we created the cutouts with punches instead of Framelits. Super quick!

The Designer Series paper is Fan Fair (#126918). The note on the left uses Teeny Tiny Wishes (Wood #115370; Clear #127802) and Clockworks (Wood #127290; Clear #127292) stamp sets. The one on the right uses Papillon Potpourri (Wood #123757; Clear #123759).

If you'd like to make some of these projects at your very own Stampin' Up! party, call or email me. I'm booking November dates now!
