Howdy my crafty peeps!  Today is the start of a brand new Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for Pop It Ups. This month we were each given a month and a challenged to make a project that relates to that month. For my first card, I have used Karen's tutorial on using your Accordion Card dies in a landscape format.


My month is June. As we all know, that is a major graduation month. So I chose to do a Grad card.

Happy Birthday!

Hello my crafty friends. I know, I have been quiet. But I have been crafting. I wanted to share with you a card that I made for one of my Co-workers. She loves purple and butterflies. When I decided to make her card, I knew just which die to use.

For this card, I used that new seamless background tutorial posted by the fabulous Karen Burniston. If you would like to watch the tutorial yourself, you can see it here.


I used the Butterfly Pivot die with it accessories. For the body, I decorated with Elizabeth Craft Designs Glitter Dots. 



For the inside I used the Katie Label Accordion Card die accessories for the sentiment. We needed plenty of room for birthday wishes from the rest of my co-workers.

And the color is.... White

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 a monochromatic card in either Red, White or blue. For this challenge I  chose white for an elegant birthday card.  


Here is the front of the card.



 The background was embossed using the Trendy Tiles 2 embossing folder. The leaves are from the Rose and Daisy Elizabeth Craft Designs dies. The flowers are from the Spiral Circle pull card. I rolled the spiral using a quilling tool and voila, fabulous roses.  



On the inside, I have again embossed with the Trendy Tiles 2 folder. I have used the Happy Birthday Pop Up for the sentiment. The Katie Label Pivot card accessory dies make the perfect spot for a little note. 


Here are some of the supplies used:

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.
