Speech Bubble

A customer of mine gave me this super fun stamp!  I die cut the word bubble using a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Speech Bubble Edgy Options.  I added some pattern paper, colored in the words using Stampin' Write Markers and the card is done.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Shaped Card


The Crazy 4 Challenges team members are making shaped cards this week.  The shape can be anything other than a rectangle, circle or square.  I thought I'd use Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop Up die to create a cupcake shaped card.  It's so smallishly cute that it could be used as a gift tag as well.
I used the pop up die to trace around a folded card and hand cut the shape out.  I then used the coordinating dies to actually die cut the cupcake shape.  I put double sided adhesive on a piece of Whisper White to die cut the words from Word Set 2 and sponge them with Blueberry Bushel and Call me Clover.
Happy Stampin',

Karen Burnison's Paper Pros Challenge - In a name

It's time for Karen Burniston's Paper Pros challenge.  The theme was set by yours truly and it's "In a Name".  Basically we are to choose a die that has the initials in the name of the die.  I chose rectangles and there's rectangles in the Twist Panel Pop Up.
 Here's a view of the Twist Panel starting to open and twist.  There's lost of excitement when opening this card!  Slowly seeing the paper twist and then expand into a spectacular reveal.
 I found some glittered embellishments in my stash that made decorating this card very quick.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Window

The Crazy 4 Challenges team members are being inspired by windows this week.  We are to use an actual cut out window in front of a card, acetate see through window or even a clear card, shaker, images of building or cars with windows.  I went with a cut out window using Karen Burniston's Snowman Circle Twist die.
 I used the 2nd largest circle to die cut the circle opening on the front.  To line it up exactly where I needed it to be, I placed the circle in the card and placed the circle die with the cut side up and ran it through my Big Shot.  I used Word Set 2 to create the curved sentiment.
I found this stamp in my stash - I had forgotten I even had it.

Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Inlaid Technique

The "Inlaid" technique is very popular at the moment, so it's no surprise that the Crazy 4 Challenges team are making inlaid cards this week.  I adhered the gray and the foil paper together and then die cut the "Thanks".  The DSP is fairly thick and it was a bit tricky to get both layers out of the die....well it tore and I ended up putting only the gray layer back in.  I stamped a flower from Serene Garden and used the Garden Scene Framelits to die cut them out.  I am a bit disappointed that you can see all the cut marks on the front panel.  I would suggest using a new cutting pad for this technique to avoid the scratchy look.

Foliage Frames

I was playing around with the new Botanical Tags Thinlits and Foliage Frames Framelits die sets and created this card.
I adhered the flower die cuts to a piece of yellow and red paper and then cut out the flowers so there's a pop of color inside the flower.  I used the Foliage Frames to die cut the white piece for my sentiment along with a few leaves.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Ombre

It's an Ombre themed challenge this week with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I sponged Pineapple Punch, Peekaboo Peach and Grapefruit Grove on a piece of Whisper White and then used the new Garden Scene die to emboss the corner.  To color the embossed areas in, I used an aquapainter and Cucumber Crush and Rose Red Classic Ink Pad.

Botanical Tags Thinlits

I made these tags using the new Botanical Tags Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!
The thinlits lets you decide the length of the tag as it cuts the top portion only.  The flower and sunburst have a coordinating die that allows you to cut the shape out so you can adhere the shape over the tag.  I used several Blendabilities to color in the flower.  The Botanical Tags Thinlits are very fun to create with!

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's a sketch challenge with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I used a cute stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Hedgehugs, along with the new Tufted embossing folder.  I stamped the squirrel using Early Espresso and used a Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker to color him in.
For the inside, I used Karen Burniston's  Spinner Square Pop Up and Word Set 2 - Birthday.  By placing the pop up mechanism to the left, I have a lot of room to sign the card.

Paper Pros Challenge - Food and Drink

For this months' Paper Pros challenge, the theme of Food and Drink was set by Caz.  I created a window in the front of my card and stamped a sentiment onto a window sheet.  I stamped several flowers from Happiest of Days colored using Stampin' Blends an then fussy cut them out.
A view of the card opening.
I die cut the window 1" from the fold in the card per Karen's video.  I also used the Charm Accordion die for the swirls and the stitched square.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Masculine Card

We're making Masculine Cards with the Crazy 4 Challenges team today.  I chose to use a stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Birthday Wished for You.  I colored in the sentiment using Brusho and an Aqua painter.  I put some Brusho onto my craft mat, sprayed with water, and used my Aqua painter to color it in.
The inside sentiment is from my stash.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Go Barefoot Day

Take those shoes off because it's Barefoot Day with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I created this cute bear "Got Cake?" card because bears don't wear shoes.  I stamped the bear onto an oval die cut from Stampin' Up! called Stitched Shapes Framelits and colored him in using Stampin' Blends. 
For the inside of the card, I thought it suiting to use Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop Up and Word Set 2.

Accented Blooms

It's a sneak peak of a stamp set called Accented Blooms from Stampin' Up!'s new annual catalog.  I love that this set coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch from the Occasions catalog.  I am also using a new In Color card stock called Pineapple Punch and a returning color called Blackberry Bliss.
I stamped the image onto a piece of Whisper White and colored it in using Stampin' Blends.  I used a Rich Razzelberry Stampin' Blends marker to color in the White Perfect Accents (on the top corner of my card).  I added a border using a ruler and a Journaling Pen.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I had a piece of Brusho Layered Leaves embossed card stock laying around, so I based my card around that and the sketch.
I stamped the images onto Whisper White, colored the bird using Stampin' Write Markers and then fussy cut them out.  I used my paper piercing tool to pierce around the edges of the punched circles.
A simple sentiment and image for the inside.

Brusho

I had this piece of Brusho piece in my stash for quite a while and now it's finally on a card.  To make the Brusho panel, I embossed a piece of water color paper using the Brick Wall embossing folder.  Then I misted the paper with water and sprinkled on Brusho.  I moved the paper around to get the color to move within the grooves of the brick pattern.  I added a die cut and the front is complete.
For the inside, I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop Up.  I stamped the presents from Happiest of Days onto a label - they're colored using Stampin' Blends.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Train Day

The theme for this weeks' Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is to add a train to our cards to celebrate Train Day.  I couldn't find any trains in my stash so I thought I'd use the mode of transportation that I did have.  Zoom Zoom!  
I think the juvenile paper and stickers work perfectly with the punny stamped sentiment.  My son has outgrown these and I am glad that I found another use for them.
I used Karen Burniston's House and Fence Pop Up to make the floating floor.  The banners and rectangle signature area are from Karen's die called Twist Panel.
