Crazy 4 Challenges - Hammock Day

The Crazy 4 Challenges team members are creating cards with the theme of relaxation.  So I ask you, who wouldn't be smiling at this sweet little piggy image?  He's relaxing walking through the grass holding a flower.
I stamped the pig from Stampin' Up!'s stamp set called This Little Piggy onto Blushing Bride card stock and fussy cut him out.  I did add a little bit of Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker to the ears and snout.  I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop Up die set to die cut the sentiment.
Look at how much fun This Little Piggy is having!  The Katherine Label lifts up to reveal the balloons.  I used Nature Edges for the grass and edges.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the 3rd Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.
When I first saw this new stamp set from Stampin' Up!, I knew I had to have it.  The images and sentiments in this set are very humorous.  I stamped her onto watercolor paper and used an aquapainter to move the ink around just a bit.

Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston's Paper Pals Challenge - Summer Road Trip

It's time for a summer road trip to sunny Florida!  I know it's not a long drive for me LOL.  I used some bright and cheerful pattern paper and added "Hello" die cut from glitter paper.
 I used Snowman Twist Circle for my card base and added a taco truck.....because you get hungry when you travel LOL.
 Here's a look at the card as it's opening.  The circle folds flat for mailing and flips up when you open the card - so much fun!

Crazy 4 Challenges - Travel Destination

The Crazy 4 Challenges design team is traveling this summer - with our cards that is.  The team was challenged with the theme of travel.  I just got this new stamp set from Stampin' Up! and it makes me think of the British TV show called Ab Fab.  So yes, I'm off to cheery ole England.
 I used some Union Jack washi tape from my stash to decorate the front.  I colored my fab lady using colored pencils.  I stamped the sentiment onto a Stitched Fishtail Banner.
The inside is simple with Stitched and Dotted Scallop Rectangles.

Happy Stampin',

Hop a Park Day

The Crazy 4 Challenges group is park hopping today!  The team is to create a card with something you'd see in a park.  Of course Karen Burniston's new Woodland Animals and Tree Pop Up dies are perfect for this challenge.
 I used Nature Edges to die cut the clouds in different pattern paper and the grass and hill too.  Isn't the little squirrel cute?
For the inside, I used Tree Pop up and added a tire swing (included in the die set).  I also added a Katherine Label so I can sign the card.

Happy Stampin',
