Blast off!

Howdy my crafty peeps!

Just stopping by to share my card for this month's Designers Challenge. This month, we were challenged with using the Train Pivot Panels or the Rocket Pop-up for a card of any theme.

For my card, I went with an outer space theme. Here is the front of my card. I have used the "crater" piece from the Rocket Pop-Up to create the planet that my alien is blasting off from. I love the stencil feature in the die to help create the craters. I used Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Inks on grey cardstock. The spaceship and alien are from the Space Charms die set.



Here is the inside of the card. I have added the Enjoy the Ride die set and you can see the rocket pops up into the air taking flight.


Here is a close up of the rocket. I have used 3 flames to create the flame burst out of the end of the rocket. The flames were cut with yellow cardstock and inked with Wild Honey and Barn Door Distress Inks.


Here you can see the card closes flat for mailing.


Thanks for stopping by!

Missing You

Howdy my crafty peeps! 

It is time for another Designers Challenge. This months theme is: Fun on the Farm, We were challenged to use the Barn Pop Stand and farm related dies.

Here is my card. I have used the Barn Pop Stand. I have also used the Farm Edges for the tractor and fence. For the sky I used Distress Inks to make the clouds using a die that I cut out as a stencil from the Nature Edges. I have also added the grass from the same die set. The pitchfork is from the Tiny Accessories 3 die set.

Here is the barn opened up. I have used the Triple Flip die set and only used the middle of the 3 "flippers" to animate the barn. In order to support the weight of the barn, I did extend the flipper with a scrap of paper from where I cut the whole in the barn. Also, in order to extend the Triple Flip layer piece, I did not place the top edge of the die on the cutting plate. I have also added the pig from the Chicken, Pig and Lamb die set and used the Tiny Accessories 3 to add the bandanna and the cowboy hat.

Avengers Assemble

Howdy my crafty peeps!

Just stopping by to share a card that I made for my little mans birthday. It is hard to see him getting older. But with getting older also comes more "big boy" cards. For this birthday, I have decided to go with an Avengers theme using the Snowman Twist Circle Pop-Up.  The card is 5x7.



Here is the card opened up. I have added the Happy Birthday die inside as well.



Here you can see the mechanism inside spin down which allows the card to lay flat for mailing. I did make sure that my images did not have any catch points by inlaying pieces so that they were smooth.


Here is close ups of some of the images used in today's card. I do have the all of the circular images on the dotted accessory circle included in the Snowman Twist Circle Pop-Up.
