Sleigh Pop Up

I found some embellishments and pattern papers in my stash and put together a quick Christmas card using Karen Burniston's Sleigh Pop Up.  I used Nature Edges to make a snowy edge, added a ribbon and embelishments and the front is complete.

I added a tree embellishment in the sleigh, stamped a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Season Like Christmas and the inside is done too!  The mechanism for the sleigh is sandwiched between the two sleighs (makes it easy to add panels to the top and bottom of the card).

Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros Challenge - Let's Twist Again

Let's twist again said Frances Bryne to the Paper Pros.  The Pros are to use any Twist Pop Up to create our cards today.  I found an old stamp set and thought of a different round man other than Santa.....Frosty.
 I got the idea of a melting snowman when my son was playing with his Melting Snowman" and we all know snow and Florida don't go together.
When you open the card fully you can see the melting snowman and the die cut greeting.  This is a super fun Floridian holiday card!  To make the melting snowman, I used the largest circle from Snowman Twist Circle Pop Up and just hand cut around the edges in a scallop-like pattern.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Past Sketches

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are choosing a sketch from all of this years' previous sketches.  I was gifted this adorable patterned paper and my card started from there.
I used Karen Burniston's new Tag Book Pop Up for my base card.  I added a little gingerbread man using Winter Charms - oh so cute!  The sentiment is a Stampin' Up! stamp set called Suite Seasons and it's stamped onto a decorator die from the Tag Book.
It's so easy to decorate the Tag Book Pop Up because there are so many decorator dies included.  I have several areas to write a little note or a little photo could even be placed there.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Color Your Day!

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are coloring today.  The team was challenged to color an image.  I was gifted this pretty patterned paper and I thought it would be the perfect background for Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Blooms.  I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock and colored it using Watercolor Pencils and an Aquapainter.  The sentiment was stamped onto a die cut from Karen Burniston called Katherine Label.
For the inside, I decided to make a pop up using Cupcake Pop Up.  The flower is fairly large and covers up most of the cupcake and being that I used patterned paper it also blends into the background nicely.  I used the bottom bump for a place to put an inside sentiment.

Tag Book Pop Up

I recently got the new Tag Book Pop Up from Karen Burniston and it's so much fun to create with!  There are lots of decorator dies included in the set that aids in decorating the book so easily.  I found this cat themed stamp in my stash to go along with Karen's new Cat & Dog die.  Aren't those glasses the cutest?  There's a new die called Tiny Accessories 1 to jazz up all the animals.
Mewow!  Look at how fun this die is!  The decorator dies are great to use by themselves too.  Assembly is very easy.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Christmas or Winter Card

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are making Christmas or Winter themed cards this week.  I pulled out my Santa Paws stamp set from Stampin' Up!.  I stamped the poodle directly onto a die cut from Karen Burniston called Gift Card Label.  Since the label was large enough, I decided to stamp the sentiment on there too.
 What dog wouldn't want his or her dog house as fancy as this one?  I used House & Fence Pop Up to create this festively furry friendly scene.

Charm Accordion card

Are you ready to see a super cute card?  Isn't this litter polar bear adorable?  I used the Charm Accordion for my base and added a polar bear from Winter Animals.  The sentiment is from Word Set 2 and the present is from Birthday Charms.
Here's a view of the card fully open.
This Charm Accordion die makes such a cute card and it's so easy to decorate because the set comes lots of decorator dies that coordinate.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I used This Little Piggy stamp set from Stampin' Up!  I stamped each pig and used a 1 3/8 circle punch to punch them out.  I used Stampin' Write Markers to color them in and then traced around the edges with a black pen once they were adhered to my base.
I used Karen Burniston's Tree Pop Up for inside of my card.  I used the pop up die to cut two pop ups - one for the tree and another for the cute little pig.  I stamped some clouds in the background, added a die cut for my signature area and my card was done!

Karen Burniston Paper Pros Challenge - Winter Birthday Card

It's time for the Paper Pros Winter Birthday Card challenge.  This sentiment came into my head & I just had to make this card.
I used Word Set 2 Birthday to make the sentiment - I cut several extra "r's" to make the Brrr.
 For the inside, I used Snowman Twist Circle Pop Up.  I added a little present from Birthday Charms for the snowman to hold.  I added a little die cut from Katherine Label for an area to sign my card.
Here's a view of the card as it's opening.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Pleasant Poppies

The Crazy 4 Challenges team members are to make cards with poppies on them today in honor of Remembrance Day.  I have the perfect stamp from Stampin' Up! called Pleasant Poppies.
I stamped the poppies using black StazOn onto Irresistibly Floral DSP, then colored with Stampin' Write Markers.  I gently blotted the ink away from the embossed areas and sponged the entire piece with Pool Party and Dapper Denim Classic Ink Pads.  I inlaid the "Hello" die cut using Greetings Thinlits.  Next, I added a few rhinestones and ribbon to finish off the card.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Layer it up

It's time to layer it up with Crazy 4 Challenges!  The team members are to use many layers on their cards this week.  I thought this die from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Fitted Frames 5 Lace Circles would give me lots of layers.
 The frames were the perfect size for this Stampin' Up! image from You've Got Style stamp set.  This very classy lady was colored with alcohol markers.
I used some more layers from the Fitted Frames for the inside sentiment.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Pink

It's a pink day with Crazy 4 Challenges!  Since October is breast cancer month, the team is bringing on the pink in support.  I was looking through my stash and found this die cut chevron border and my card took off from there.  Whilst looking in my stash I also found some stickers and bubble shakers.  I used Karen Burniston's Word Set 2 - Birthday for the sentiment.
What fun!  I used the Twist Circle Pop Up for this inside of my pink card.  I also added more of the chevron die cut and lots of those stickers I found.  I think this is a super cheerful birthday card don't you?  I mean look at those bubble shakers with little birds in them!

Halloween Twist Circle

I found some Halloween stash and decided to try out a technique that Shelly Hickox did of making flying ghosts.  I have a lead in on the front of my card to the fun that's on the inside.  I used several dies from Karen Burniston's Snowman Twist Circle to decorate the front.

BOO!  There's flying cats up in here!  I really had fun making this card as Halloween is my favorite holiday and there's purple in this card.  As you open the card the center oval and cats twist and then open fully.

When fully open, the cats move a little bit as they are attached to acetate.  I used a tiny stapler to adhere the acetate to the oval and also the oval to the mechanism.

Crazy 4 Challenges - sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I followed the sketch to make this fun masculine card.....well I'm thinking masculine because of the colors LOL.
I stamped the image, colored him and then cut around the tail a bit.  Then I placed an oval die around the image with the tail portion on top of the die - so the little tail part wouldn't be cut off.  I hadn't colored in a long time and boy was it fun.
I decorated the inside just a bit with some more pattern paper the same as the front and a sentiment.

Crazy 4 Challenges - National Desert Day

Did you know that today is National Desert Day?  So you know what that means?  It means that the Crazy 4 Challenges Design Team are making cards with any sort of yummy dessert on it.
I had these cake Peel-Off-Stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs and thought they would be the perfect yummy treat for this challenge.  I placed Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto white cardstock, removed the liner and placed the sticker (sticky side up) onto the liner and then put the sticky white cardstock on top.  Doing it this way ensures that your sticker stays flat to the sticky white cardstock.  Then I covered it all with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and colored with markers.  Add a die cut sentiment from Karen Burniston Word Set 2 Birthday - and the front is done.
I wanted to use the negative portion of the peel-off-sticker so to do that, I used a Transfer Sheet.  Basically you pick up the peel-off-sticker with the sticky Transfer Sheet and then burnish it onto your project.  To burnish it, I used a bone folder.

Karen Burniston Paper Pros - Holiday Cards

It's time for the Holiday themed Paper Pros challenge.  Caz Council set the challenge this month to make a holiday themed card.  With some help from Karen Burniston's Snowman, I chose Christmas themed card.
I had just enough room on my snowman's body to stamp a sentiment from Stampin Up!'s  Season Like Christmas stamp set. 
Oh what's that on the inside?  Well keep opening the card and you will see lots of snowmen!
I used the Christmas Tree Pop Up as a base for all those snowmen (8 to be exact).  I did snip a little bit of the bottom of the tree off, otherwise they fit on there very nicely.  I followed the guidelines for a tree with a star because I wasn't sure how much room I needed for the hats.  To ensure that the hats were within the confines of the card, I adhered them while the card was slightly closed.  You can see the hats aren't taller than the tree itself; however, they are wider.
Happy Stampin',
