Crazy 4 Challenges - Favorite sketch 2016

Decorate a card using your favorite "Crazy" sketch from our Crazy 4 Challenges 2016 sketches.  I chose C4C323 as to showcase the fun pattern in the Candy Cane Lane DSP from Stampin' Up!.  I stamped the sentiment from Suite Seasons onto a stitched circle.  I also added a cute peppermint lollypop.
I used Early Espresso and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers to make the dual color sentiment.
Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - STAR

Stars decorate our Christmas trees, so for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge this week we are using the word 'STAR' - incorporate something starting with each of the letters in the word.  I chose spoon, teal, aroma and round.....let's see how I did it.
I pulled out a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set called Treat Yourself for the sentiment.  I used Karen Burniston's Labels & Circles to stamp the sentiment onto.
I used Karen's Cup Pop Stand along with the frosting/whip cream top from Elizabeth Craft Designs' Cupcakes.  Who wouldn't want to smell a cup of coffee that also has whip cream too?  To make the saucer, I used the Cup Pop Stand die that makes the pop up and die cut it onto scrap paper and then used the circle die from Clock & Gears to cut it out.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Cake Day

According to the calendar, today is cake day!  The Crazy 4 Challenges team was asked to please add some cake to your card.  Well ok, no problem but can I eat some too?
I used Karen Burniston's new Labels & Circles with the coordinating Occasions Clear Stamp on the front of my card.....a few strips of pattern paper and a bow and the card front is done!
I used the Cake Pop Up die of course.  I followed the theme with the pattern paper and it was so simple to put together.  I stamped the sentiment from Just a Note Clear Stamp onto the bottom of the pattern paper strip.
Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - "Charmed I'm sure"

It's time to be "Charmed" with Karen Burniston!  Karen Aicken sets the challenge this week with "Charmed I'm sure".  The team members are to use any of the charm dies to make a card.  
I kept the front of my card simple and used the Iron Fence covered with White Microfine Glitter.  I added a few wreaths courtesy of Holiday House.  The sentiment is from Holiday Clear Stamps stamped onto a Katie Label Pivot Card decorator die.
I got the idea to add the Iron Fence and Evergreen Pivot to the Flower Pot Pop Up following Karen's tutorial.  To get the fold in the correct spot, I laid the fence on the Flower Pot die cut itself and then folded them both.
I added the little box just like Karen did to animate the charm presents.  I added the little snowflakes, included in the Holiday Charms, to the tops of the trees.
I used the stencil portion of the Evergreen Pivot die to trace in the swirls, lines & dots with a Stampin' Write Marker.


Happy Stampin',
