Ruby Rock-It is offering our beautiful Essence Empire Bebe collection to one lucky winner!

And the Elizabeth Craft Designs prize is a package full of fun Peel-Offs from their new collection, Stand Up Helpers Set 2 and a pack of Watercolor paper.
I've made 2 cards for the hop, my first card is a Pop It Ups featuring beautiful paper from Ruby Rock-It's Handi Scandi collection.
For the card front  I've used some tea cups from the Die Cut Pack, a Wood Veneer tea cup that I colored with alcohol based markers, a gold peel-off sentiment placed onto a tag from the Tag Pack.
The inside was cut using the Lucy Label Pop It Ups designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Pop ups are so much fun!  I used the Lucy Label to animate a pretty glittered flower from the Die Cut Pack & a tea pot peel-off sticker.  Using peel-offs are easy.  Apply Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock, remove release sheet to reveal the adhesive, now place your peel-off sticky side up onto the release sheet, then place your adhesive sheet on top to transfer the peel-off sticker.  Now cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, polish with your finger and color with desired medium (I used alcohol based markers).  To the left of the flower I adhered another glittered flower from the Die Cut Pack.  I added Gold Border Lines at the top and bottom of my card for a bit of extra glam.

For my second card, I made a center step easel using Elizabeth Craft Designs' Stand Up Helpers and Ruby Rock-It's Handi Scandi card stock.  Here is my card flat.
The inspiration for this center step easel came from a card Karen Aicken posted on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog.  I followed her directions but made all portions into an easel by die cutting the Stand Up Helpers 3 times.
I used Handi Scandi Tag Pack, Die Cut Pack, 3-D Sticker, Twine Pack & Droplets from Ruby Rock-It to decorate the front of my card.  The boots are cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs' Rainy Day using Light Blue Metallic Shimmer Sheetz & paper from Ruby Rock-It.
Thanks for stopping by & I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and the hop.
