Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday Card with Numbers

It's time for a birthday challenge with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I've challenged the team to make a birthday card and put numbers on it.  I admit that I have an ulterior motive for setting this challenge - it's my son Jake turns 12 next week!
So I set forth to search my stash for pattern paper with numbers and got busy creating.  He can climb trees like nobody's business and I used to say he can climb like a monkey.....hence the monkey stamp.

I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop Up to animate another monkey and the sentiment.  I also added another strip of the numbered patterned paper and made the "12" stand out by adding a star as I did on the front.
When the card opens fully, the sentiment panel and monkey move up to the top of the card!  It's so much fun and I love the up-side-down monkey with the googley eyes.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's a sketch challenge with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I chose the artistic freedom to swap the circle for a square LOL.  I stamped the trio of flowers using the Petal Palette stamp set from Stampin' Up!













Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros - Spots

The Paper Pros are seeing spots!  The team was challenged to make a card using spots since they work so well on cards.  I found this glittered spotty pattern paper in my stash.....and I was off creating my spotty card!
I wanted to make a sweet kitty card, so I pulled out Karen Burniston's Cat and Dog die set.  My kitty is ready to celebrate with her party hat and present using the Birthday Charms die set.  I stamped a sentiment from my stash onto a Katherine Label.
For the inside I made a cupcake filled tree using the Tree Pop Up and the Birthday Charms die set.  I used Word Set 2 for the sentiment and adhered it following the curve of the paper that was cut using Nature Edges.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Grandparents Day

Welcome back to my second week of hosting the Crazy 4 Challenges team!  It's grandparents day this month, so I challenged the team to make a card to show someone you love them or to show appreciation for what they do for you.  I know that my son is truly blessed to have such wonderful grandparents.
I used the interactive stamp and Thinlit set called You Move Me.  When you pull up on the center piece, the hummingbird appears to be fluttering!

Crazy 4 Challenges - Technique

I am hosting the Crazy 4 Challenges this month!  I set the challenge to make a card using any technique.  I thought I would try out the Bokeh technique as a masculine card.

Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder

I just had to try out the new Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder in the new Holiday catalog from Stampin' Up!.  The samples that are in the catalog look just like real tin.  
I embossed a piece brushed gold cardstock with the Tin Tile EF and then dragged black Memento across the top of the raised areas.  I think this card is perfect for a man or a woman - and that's great because you get more bang for your buck with this folder.
I also used the Tailored Tag Punch for my sentiment. I swiped the punched piece with my embossing buddy, stamped the Accented Blooms stamp using Encore gold.  I covered my piece with gold embossing powder and then heat set.


Happy Stampin',
