Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I used This Little Piggy stamp set from Stampin' Up!  I stamped each pig and used a 1 3/8 circle punch to punch them out.  I used Stampin' Write Markers to color them in and then traced around the edges with a black pen once they were adhered to my base.
I used Karen Burniston's Tree Pop Up for inside of my card.  I used the pop up die to cut two pop ups - one for the tree and another for the cute little pig.  I stamped some clouds in the background, added a die cut for my signature area and my card was done!


Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston Paper Pros Challenge - Winter Birthday Card

It's time for the Paper Pros Winter Birthday Card challenge.  This sentiment came into my head & I just had to make this card.
I used Word Set 2 Birthday to make the sentiment - I cut several extra "r's" to make the Brrr.
 For the inside, I used Snowman Twist Circle Pop Up.  I added a little present from Birthday Charms for the snowman to hold.  I added a little die cut from Katherine Label for an area to sign my card.
Here's a view of the card as it's opening.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Pleasant Poppies

The Crazy 4 Challenges team members are to make cards with poppies on them today in honor of Remembrance Day.  I have the perfect stamp from Stampin' Up! called Pleasant Poppies.
I stamped the poppies using black StazOn onto Irresistibly Floral DSP, then colored with Stampin' Write Markers.  I gently blotted the ink away from the embossed areas and sponged the entire piece with Pool Party and Dapper Denim Classic Ink Pads.  I inlaid the "Hello" die cut using Greetings Thinlits.  Next, I added a few rhinestones and ribbon to finish off the card.

Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Layer it up

It's time to layer it up with Crazy 4 Challenges!  The team members are to use many layers on their cards this week.  I thought this die from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Fitted Frames 5 Lace Circles would give me lots of layers.
 The frames were the perfect size for this Stampin' Up! image from You've Got Style stamp set.  This very classy lady was colored with alcohol markers.
I used some more layers from the Fitted Frames for the inside sentiment.

Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Pink

It's a pink day with Crazy 4 Challenges!  Since October is breast cancer month, the team is bringing on the pink in support.  I was looking through my stash and found this die cut chevron border and my card took off from there.  Whilst looking in my stash I also found some stickers and bubble shakers.  I used Karen Burniston's Word Set 2 - Birthday for the sentiment.
What fun!  I used the Twist Circle Pop Up for this inside of my pink card.  I also added more of the chevron die cut and lots of those stickers I found.  I think this is a super cheerful birthday card don't you?  I mean look at those bubble shakers with little birds in them!



Happy Stampin',

Halloween Twist Circle

I found some Halloween stash and decided to try out a technique that Shelly Hickox did of making flying ghosts.  I have a lead in on the front of my card to the fun that's on the inside.  I used several dies from Karen Burniston's Snowman Twist Circle to decorate the front.

BOO!  There's flying cats up in here!  I really had fun making this card as Halloween is my favorite holiday and there's purple in this card.  As you open the card the center oval and cats twist and then open fully.

When fully open, the cats move a little bit as they are attached to acetate.  I used a tiny stapler to adhere the acetate to the oval and also the oval to the mechanism.  

Happy Stampin',
