Woohoo! Hello my crafty peeps!  Today is the start of a brand new Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for Pop It Ups. This months challenge is  WHAT'S IN A NAME?.  Everyone has to incorporate at least two Pop it Ups dies according to your first and last initials. 


Since my name is hyphenated I will am using three die sets.

S- Spiral Circle Pull Card
H- Hay There Pop Stand
P-  Props 2 die set


Here is the closed card. I have used Virgil the Pig on the Spiral Circle Pull Card. The Hay There and Props 2 pieces was cut, glittered and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. 




When the card is open I have used Farm Greeting stamp set and selectively stamped part of the image with my MISTI and Hero Arts Ombre Ink.

Barns Barns Barns

Hellooooo my crafty peeps!  Today I am sharing a card for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for Pop It Ups. We were challenged with making a card using the new Barn die that was recently released at the Collins event. 


I know that Christmas is still far away, however with three munchkins and a full time career, I like to get a head start on my holiday cards. I thought it would be fun to incorporate some of the previously released dies with some of the new dies for my challenge card. 






Here I have used the Barn with Brownie the Cow. I have decorated my barn using the string lights and wreath from the Holiday House decorator die. I thought that Brownie needed some antlers so I used the feet from Cheepers, also a recently released die to make the antlers for Brownie. 





Here are the Supplies used:

Make 'em Laugh Day 2

Ok my crafty friends, it is day 2 of the  Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for Pop It Ups. We were challenged with making a funny card. 


I decided to follow Karen's wonderful technique and turned Honey into a Panda. I simply love how cute the Panda is. I you would like step by step instruction just watch Karen's YouTube tutorial here.



Here is the card in a closed state. I love having the tabs to keep the card closed.  I have used the Circle Pull Card with some additional accessories from the Accordion Circle and the Lorna Label Pop Up die.  The star of the show is Honey! 





When the card is open I have used a fun stamp from Pink and Main called Pandamonium. The background paper was also used in this set.
