Foodie Card

Hello my crafty peeps! It is time for our June Paper Pros challenge. This month our challenge is hosted by Caz Counsell who has given us the theme is "Food & Drink".

For my card, I decided to go with watermelons for my theme. Here is the front of my card.  I have used the Alphabet die set for my letters matted on a piece of cardstock cut with the Rectangles-Crosshatch die set. I have also added a slice of watermelon from the Sweet Treats Charms die set.



For the inside of my card, I used the the Upsy Daisy Pop-Up die. For the sentiment, I used the "thanks" from the Word Set 1 die set and the "a" from the Word Set 2 die set. I have carried the letter theme from the front of the card to the inside of the card as well. For the "O", I have used the ball die from the Beach Charms set to make the watermelon rind. The "white" of the watermelon is from the "O" in the Alphabet die set. The "pink" is made with the base from the donut in the Sweet Treats Charms die set. I used the watermelon charm to stencil the seeds on.  I have also added elements from the Charm Accordion die set to the card as well.


Here is a side view of the card. You can see that instead of me using twine to join the pieces together, I used the charm frame from the Charm Accordion die set. I made the tiny watermelons from the base of the donut in the Sweet Treats Charms die set and the center piece of the sun from the Tropical Scene die set.

A Card For Dad

Hello my crafty peeps!

It is time for another Karen Burniston Designers Challenge. This month the theme is "THE GREAT OUTDOORS". For my card today, I used the new Tent Pop Up die along with the new Upsy Daisy Pop-Up.

On the front of my card, I have used the Outdoor Scene die set, Rectangles- Crosshatch, and the Tent Pop-Up dies. I have inked the background using Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress inks. I have also flicked on some Dr. Ph. Martin's Pen-White ink to make the stars.








On the inside of my card, I have used the Upsy Daisy Pop-Up, Squares Cross-Hatch, Rectangles- Crosshatch, Camping Charms, and Alphabet die set. I love the Upsy Daisy Pop-Up. Here is have opted to change the dies that are suspended on arms of this die. Here is the inside of my card. I have inked the panels that the lanterns are on with the same colors of Distress ink from the front of he card to carry the "night" theme throughout the card.


Here are the KB Riley supplies used:

Motivational Graduation Card

Hello my crafty peeps!

I am back today with another card project. Today's card is a graduation card using my adaptation of the Z-fold card.

Here is the card in the flat position. You can see the Palm Tree Pop-Up accessories and the Beach Charms die set. I have also used the Nature Edges to make a stencil for the clouds. I have also added elements from the Tropical Scene dies.


Here is the card open. In the Z-fold, I have added the slats from the Flower Pot Pop-Up card. I have also added the Palm Tree Pop-Up in the center. The sentiment is stamped on the Squares- Crosshatch die set.


Here is a view down into the Z-fold where you can see the mechanism I used.

Happy Birthday (with sprinkles on top)

Good Morning my crafty peeps!

Today I am sharing a card that I made with the new KB Riley dies, Circle Charm Pop-Up and Sweet Treats Charms.


Here is the front of my card using the Happy Birthday die.



On the inside of my card, I have created a double pivot with the Circle Charm Pop-Up and suspended the ice cream cones from the Sweet Treats Charms dies.



As you can see, the card still lies flat for mailing. This card measures 6" x 5" and can be mailed in a 5" x 7" envelope.

A Monster Bash

Hello my crafty friends!

 The week the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge team is doing a blog hop with Brutus Monroe. You should have arrived here from Kelly Booth's blog.
For my card, I used the  Twist Panel Pop Up die to create a monstrous birthday card for my little man who turns 6 tomorrow.

Here is the front of my card. I made the patterned paper using the Monster Party stamp set by Brutus Monroe. I have also included a sneak peek of the newly released Rectangles Crosshatch die set


Here is the inside of the card with the Twist Panel Pop Up. The images were colored using Copic markers. 


Here is a close up of the panels 



And as you can see in this picture, the card still closes flat for mailing. 


The Twist Panel Pop-Up is a very univeral Pop-Up card, and since I used for my card, that is what I'm offering for a PRIZE! Simply leave me a comment telling me why you like my card and be sure your email address is valid so I can contact you if you win. I will use Random.org to choose a random number from the comments and will draw for the Twist Panel Pop-Up Prize on Thursday May 24th.


 
Make sure that you stop by and check all of the other blogs that are hopping along. Your next stop on the hop would be back at Karen Burniston's Blog if you started hopping with me.
