Karen Burniston's December Designer Challenge

For Karen Burniston's December Designer Challenge, I was challenged to use the Label Window Pop N Cut insert.  I decided to use the exclusive Stampin Up base with Monster Maniacs and Bombs Away Birthday stamp sets & some Sale-A-Bration DSP from last year.  HINT: SAB will soon be upon us!

I stamped all the images with Versamark, applied black embossing powder then colored all images with Stampin Write Markers.  I used the companion die called Butterflies & Labels to die cut the Crushed Curry piece behind my monsters - I simply traced around the edge with Rich Razzelberry Stampin Write Marker.  Where the 2 DSP seams meet, I used some Epic Day Washi Tape.  For the end pieces I used the scallop from Adorning Accents to make a nice decorative edge, I even used the matching embossing folder but unfortunately you can't see it too much.
Open the card & the magic happens....the labels are folded on a mountain so they extend out of the card when opened - really cool things can be animated there.  

Now you can see that my little monster is holding a birthday bomb!
On the inside I have more Monster Maniacs & the sentiment from Bombs Away Birthday stamp set.  You can see the scallops better here & maybe even notice the embossing.  
If you don't have any Pop N Cuts of your own, I say you need to remedy that & get some - Pop N Cuts are SO much FUN and easy!  To purchase any Stampin Up proudcts, simply go to my online store (see lihk at the top right)
Thanks to Karen & all the other wonderful designers for including me in the designer challenges.
Happy Stamping,
