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', 
Raquel

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.
Happy Stampin',
