Stretch it Oout

Hello my crafty friends! 

It is time for  our second Pop It Ups Designer Challenge for the month of July. The second challenge for the month is issued by a Designers Challenge team member. This month the challenge has been issued by Kelly Booth. 

And the challenge is .....

"Stretch it out!" - use any of the Accordion dies for a project of any theme.

Here is the card that I made for the challenge. I have used the Oval Accordion Card die featuring Jinks the Monkey. Jinks is hanging from a branch from the All Season's Tree.  I have added decoration to the pages with the Bananas Embossing Folder and Oval Dots Frame Edges. The sentiments are from the Cheeky Monkey clear stamp set. 

Make sure you stop by and check out the projects from the other designers today. Do not forget to check out Karen's blog tomorrow to see her project for the challenge.

Thanks a Latte!

Hello my crafty friends!

 Today I am sharing a card using the Gift Card Accordion die from the Pop It Ups line at Elizabeth Craft Designs

With the card closed, you can see Lucky The Rabbit holding a coffee cup. The cup was made by trimming the pot accessory from Honey The Bear. 

When the card is open, you can see the slot for a gift card. Such a fun way to give a gift card.

Up Up and Away

It is time for another Designer's Challenge for Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups. Starting this month and going forward, we will have two challenges a month. The 2nd Tuesday of the month is a theme picked by Karen and the 4th  Tuesday is a theme picked by one of the Designers Challenge team members. The theme for first July is "Up".  We are free to interpret the theme however we choose with cards featuring the sky.

For my card, I was inspired by the movie UP. I created a sky background using my Distress Inks. I used balloon from the Spiral Circle Pull Card. The card is long and fits in a standard letter envelope.

I love the Hanging Charm Pull Card. I elongated the pull mechanism making it possible to have a double pull Card.

Happy Birthday Ms. Stephanie!

Hello my crafty friends!

Ever since I watched Karen's video on the Cascading Tag Card, I could not wait to try it. So when the time came to make a card for my bestie's birthday, I knew this would be the perfect technique.

Here is the front of the card. I measures 3" X 8.5" and fits in a standard letter envelope. The end was cut using the Tags & More 1 by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is the card opened up.

The card is so long, I needed to take photos in sections the capture it all. Here is the left side of the card. The background paper totally reminds me of a 50's wallpaper.

Here is the left side of the card. The jukebox is a die from Sizzix. The "Happy Birthday" is a sentiment from Elizabeth Craft Designs as well. The guitar is an embellishment from the ephemera pack that coordinates with the paper pack I used from DCWV. 

 Here is the video by Karen on the Cascading Tag card.

Summer Lovin'

Hello everyone!

It is time for another Designer's Challenge for Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups. The theme for June is Summer Lovin'! Make a project to celebrate Summer - this could be nature, or beach or 4th of July or anything that means "summer" to you. For this months challenge, I decided to make a Beach Adirondack Chair Pop Up card.

For the front of the card I used the Beach Edges from the Pop It Up collection along with the Dotted Scallop Squares and the Fitted Squares from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The words were created using the "It's a Boy/Girl die", Alphabeth 1, and Alphabet 2 dies.

For the inside of the card, I used the Adirondack Chair Pop IP die along with the Beach Edges, Outdoor Edges, Baby  Charms and the Rainy Day die sets. I have added the sun from the Oval Pull card die along with the pail from the Palm Tree and Pail die set.  The birds were stenciled with the Stage It Stenciles.

Here is a side view of the inside of the card.  You can see the sand piles made with the snow bank die out of the Garden Bench Pop Up die.

Stage It!!!

Good Evening my crafty friends.

I am sharing with you today a project for this month's Designers Challenge. The theme this month is: Stage It. We are to create a project using the Stage It Stencils from the Pop It Ups line from Elizabeth Craft Designs and Karen Burniston.

 For my project, I decided to make an altered memory book. the book is a paper mache book from a craft store. (I have recently spotted some at Tuesday Morning as well)

Here is what the book looked like at the the start.

Here is the book in progress. You can see the new Gears stencil using some of the Antique Gold glitter from ECD mixed with some Transparent Texture Paste from Ranger. I have also used some Distress Paint and the Mediallion Stencil, as well as the Chocolate glitter and the Flourish stencil.

Here is the completed cover. I have used gears from the Clock and Gears die and the New Steampunk Charms. The photo frame is from the Hanging Charm Pull Card Die.  I have also incorporated the a foil diecut from the Chicken Wire Die and some chains from the ECD Chains die set.

Here is a closer look at the front of the cover.

I decided to also alter the spine of the book. I created some faux leather from chipboard and used the Trendy Tiles embossing folder to complete the look.
