Anything is possible ...

Hello my crafty peeps!  It is time for the Karen Burniston August Designers Challenge. This month, the theme is "Charmed". We were challenged to make a card using any of the Charm dies.

For my card, I used the Tag Book Pop-Up Die. The patterned paper was made using the Coffee Cup Clear Set from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. I have added some rectangles from the Crosshatch-Rectangles die set. The coffee cup is from the Coffee Charms die set. I have also added a sentiment using the Words 4 die set.


 

Here is the card opened up. I have added additional stamped patterned paper from the stamp set used on the front of the card. I have also included more elements from the Coffee Charms die set. The sentiment is a stamp from Riley and Company and I have added die cut coffee beans from the Coffee Cup Pop Up die set.



Make sure to stop by and check out what the other team members are creating.

More Collaboration Fun

Hello my crafty friends!

I am posting another card for the KB Riley/Darkroom Door collaboration. For this card, I went with a simple card. I used the French Script Texture stamp from Darkroom Door Stamps. I heat embossed in clear and that went over the with Distress Inks. I cut my panel out using the Crosshatch-Rectangles die. The sentiment is using the Happily Ever After die. I cut the sentiment three times and layered them together for added dimension. I also cut the heart out of glitter cardstock to make it pop.

Hello Summer Tag

Hello my crafty peeps! 

I am just stopping by today to share a tag that I made for a recent meet-up group.

I have used a Julie Nutting image - Cat Girl and colored her with Copics. The cloud background was created by making a stencil using the Nature Edges die set.  I have also used the grass die from the same set to make the grass and the stems of my flowers. The stitched clouds are from the Outdoor Scene die set. The sun is from the Tropical Scene die set. For the flowers, I used the flowers from the Tree Pop-Up die set. The sentiment is from the Words 6 die set.

I have also added a rectangle from the Rectangles-Cross Hatch die set. The "hello" is from the new Word Set -6 die set.




On the inside of my card I have used the Twist Panel Pop-Up die set. I have repeated the square frame from the front of the card. I have also added the "sweet" and "friend" from the Word Set-6 and Word Set- 1 die sets.
