Home for the Holidays!

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

DECEMBER - Home for the Holidays - Let's see how you can interpret the phrase. Use the House, Holiday House or Barn (or are you making a tree house?) or some sort of "home" on a Holiday card.

For the outside of my card, I have use the Holiday House decorator die along with the Flourish Gift Frame die.






Here is the card open. I kept the inside pretty simple using the Merry Christmas Pop Up die.

Our Love Is On Target

Hello my crafty friends!  It is day 2 for this month's Designers Challenge for Pop It Ups.

This months challenge is : Characters in Costume - We've seen amazing Character transformations (Steampunk Poppy, Cocoa Unicorn, Cocoa Zebra, Rudy White Stag, Vampire Hoppy, Honey Pooh, Hoppy Tree Frog, Reindeer Brownie, Sleeping Dutch, Monster Mouse, etc.) and now it's time to show off your costuming skills to transform a Character.

For my 2nd card, I chose Lucky the Rabbit and transformed him into Cupid.

Here is the front of my card closed. I have used the Circle Pull card and Lucky has been dressed up using the Heart With Wings die set. The bow was made using the Accordion Fancy Label and the arrow uses the diamond from that die set.


Here is the card opened. I have layered circles from various die sets. I cut the spiral from the Spiral Circle pull card out of acetate. The arrows were cut from the Rectangle Pull card die set.

Here is the front of my card closed. I have used the Ring Accordion die and Honey has been decked out using the Props 5 set. I love those glasses! I cut Honey in red and white and layered the pieces together to form the suit. Around the frame I have added snow flakes from the All Seasons Tree die set.

 
Here is the card opened. I have added the scallop frame accessory that comes with the Ring Accordion card. I have added some snowflakes from the Sleigh Gift Card Pop Up die. The stamp is from the Merry and Bright stamp set. I loved that you can bend the stamp to curve the sentiment.
