April Designers Challenge - Designing with Friends

Woohoo! Hello my crafty peeps!  Today is the start of a brand new Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for Pop It Ups. We were challenged with making an Accordion card using any of the Accordion Card dies. 


Here my closed  card. I have used the new Fancy Label Accordion Card die  along with the capital Alphabet die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. 











Here is the open card. I have added the Francy Frame Edges and word from the Best Wishes and Happy Anniversary dies. Right there in the middle panel isthe brand new Virgil the Pig character die. Isn't he/she cute? This die was just released at the Collins event last week and will be shipping to your local stores soon.

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.

Meet Buster

Howdy yall!

I am back with another one of the samples I created with the new Karen Burniston/  Elizabeth Craft Designs die releases!

Today I'm showing you a retirement card. On the outside I have used the Lorna Label for my sentiment.


But, when you open it..... there is Buster the dog cut with Velvet Adhesive sheets. Another one of the new character dies. For the inside I used the Garden Bench from the original Pop It Ups release. I "slip-covered" the bench converting it into a couch. I also used the new Props 4 die for the paw. The postage stamp die from the Rectangle Pull Card die was used to make a picture frame.
