Pop It up Sneak peeks part 2

Hello my crafty friends! We have shown you sneak peeks of the new Pop It Ups Collection. Guess what ???? That was not everything!  There are even more amazing designs being released. Here is one that was made using the new Lorna Label Pop Up die.


I have glittered Chilly with Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter. The Lorna Label has so much room to add images and scenes. Here I have stamped the ice on acetate and covered in glossy accents. I have also combines the Agatha Edges as well as the snowflake from the All Seasons tree. Have you spotted another new die? The other snowflakes are from the new Circle Pull card die.

The Stamping Chef Challenge


Hello everyone! Well a new weekly challenge has begun at The Stamping Chef.  The current challenge is Anything Goes! 

For this project I used the new Katie Label Accordion die (available in mid-July).  I have colored up an image called Alyce( Special Celebration Image). This cute little image has been colored up with my next generation Spectrum Noir markers. And here is my finished card ... 


Here is a close up of the image. She was such a blast to color up.





The colors used: 
Hair: GT1 GT2, GT3, BT4
Skin: FS2, FS5, FS9
Purple: HB1, HB2, HB3, LV3
Blue:IB1, IB2, IB3, BT7


I love using the Pop It Ups dies for my cards. It is a fast and fun way to add movement to your projects. On this card I added the scalloped edge fancy frame to each of the inside sides.  I used the included accessory dies to make background and frames for my sentiment. The sentiment was cut using an Elizabeth Craft Designs Die. 
I hope that this inspires you to join in on the fun here!
