Be Inspired

Hello my crafty friends!  It is time for another Designers Challenge for Pop It Up.

This months challenge is : Inspired Creations - we've all been blown away by each others work month after month and here's your chance to show a fellow teammate how much they've inspired you. Pick any project from any Designer Challenge going back to the beginning and use it as inspiration for a new card. You could be inspired by a technique, a color scheme, a combination of dies - anything. For this challenge, I cased a card by Helen Cryer which you can find here. I love butterflies and have wanted to try out this card for a while. Here is the front of my card



On the inside is an array of butterflies cascading down the card.



Make sure you stop by and check out the cards from the other members of the designers challenge team.

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:





















Thanks for stopping by! Make sure that you check out the blogs of the other designers for more inspiration using the Barn die.
