Happy Birthday to my hubby!

Today my fantastic husband turns 36! So to celebrate I made him a card using the fabulous new Karen Burniston Pop It Ups dies.

A few new dies were released at the Collins event and are now available for purchase. This is my take on a couple of them.


For this card I used the new Happy Birthday Pop Up die and the new Honey The Bear character die. The bear was cut from the black velvet adhesive sheets available at Elizabeth Craft Designs so he is nice and fuzzy.

Karen Burniston October Designers challenge

Hello my crafty friends!  Today is the start of a new Karen Burniston Designer Challenger for Pop It Ups. This months challenge is to make it masculine! 

For my first project, I have used the Spiral Circle Pull Card die.









The image is from Art Impression and is on an Action Wobble. 







When the card is opened, you can see the message is revealed.  There are so many ways to use this die. Was super simple to make.

Pop It Ups Designer Challenge Day 2

Hello my crafty friends!  Today is the 2nd day of the  Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for Pop It Ups. For my second project, I made a little more challenging project.  I created an easel card topped gift box. The box was made to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. In this case, I have made it into a wedding gift. 


Here is the front of the card/box 



 Here is Poppy. I have used the Props 1 die set to create a bride and groom. The background scroll work is the coordinating frame edge from the Square with Circle Accordion card.
When the card is placed in the easel position... it is held in place by an ECD Congratulations die cut which I have cut and adhered together multiple time to create a thickness to act as a stopper. 



Here are some of the supplies used:

Karen Burniston August Designer Challenge Day 1

Hello my crafty friends!  Today is the start of a new Karen Burniston Designer Challenger for Pop It Ups. This months task is to use one of the character dies, Hoppy, Poppy, or Chilly.

For my first project, I have designed a simple treat/ gift bag. This is easy to replicate for birthdays, thank yous, and anything else you can think of.


 Here is Hoppy sitting on a lily pad with a gift in hand. I also tried to make the design as unisex as possible. Using the Props 1 dies, you can easily alter this to be more feminine or masculine.

Here are some of the supplies used:
