Cheerful Owl Pull Card

Good morning friends

It's Flip-It Friday here on my Blog, and I have a quick and easy Z-fold card made using my favourite Pop it Ups die - the Spiral Circle Pull Card. Two notches hold the card in the closed position until the recipient pulls the sides to open it.


I simply cut the SCPC from this bright patterned double sided paper, added a little die cut branch and a 3-d owl sticker. I love how the owl coordinates with the colours in the paper even though they are from different companies.


Of course I used my MISTI stamping tool for the stamps inside, so there were no 'oopsies'.


Supplies:
Spiral Circle Pull Card, Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Patterned paper - Echo Park, Creative Agenda
White card stock
Owl 3-D Sticker - Life's Little Occasions
Branch die - Paper Smooches
Stamps - Avery Elle
Copic Markers
MISTI - My Sweet Petunia
Card size - standard A2

Glossy Flourish Christmas Card

Good morning friends

Today is a scheduled post, as we are spending the day with friends from Arizona!! I'm so excited - it's been 20 years since they've been to Canada, and today is the day they've allowed to spend with us. They want to see our cabin and enjoy time in the mountains so we have a fun day planned.

For my Throwback Thursday, I have an older Christmas card to share. I remember wanting to use this gorgeous green embossed flourished paper with some (then new) dies.



I added a decorative panel inside as well as a stamped Christmas verse. This is a 4-1/2 x 6" card and I love the scalloped edge that cuts with the BigZ die. The layered frame is an older Karen Burniston die ... and I have my fingers crossed that she comes out with a similar one through Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Supplies:
Scalloped Card Die - Sizzix 
Fancy Frame Die - Karen Burniston (Sizzix)
Label Die - Prima Estate
Merry Christmas - Hero Arts
Patterned paper - Recollections

Happy Canada Day

Good morning friends

I have a Ring Accordion card to share today, that I mailed to a friend to celebrate Canada Day.


I found these chipboard scrapbook embellishments and thought they would make a great card I also added one of the coordinating Frame Edges to the panels in white. They were easy peasy to adhere, as I attached the ECD double sided tape sheet to white card stock before die cutting. This is the front of the card in the closed position ...


... and the back of the card in the closed position.


This is the back of the card...


Finally, here is the top view...



Happy Canada Day!!!

Hello Summer Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

I have a summer Pop up card to share today, that I made for a friend. A friend who loves the ocean.


I found this sheet of patterned paper in one of my stacks and that is what inspired the card. Here is a peek at the inside:


I wanted the Palm tree to face to the left, so I simply flipped the die cuts over and used the back side of them.  Here is a side view so you can see the pop up better. I used Lots of Pops, a Pop it Up die by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Rocky the Crab is one of her Character dies, and he is SO fun to make. I'm always happy for a chance to use Rocky.




The sun and beachball are stickers from the same pack as the patterned papers, and the 'Hello Summer' was fussy cut from a different sheet in the stack. I added Stickles to the palm tree, since Rocky was cut from glittered paper.


Finally, I used the labels from the Katie Label Pivot as a place to add our signatures and a summer greeting.


Supplies:
Lots of Pops, Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Palm Tree, Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Rocky the Crab, Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)

Peach Pop Up Sympathy Card

Good morning friends

I have another sympathy card to share today - there has sure been a need for them lately and I hope that stops soon.

For the floral embellishment on the front, I simply cut the floral from a different sheet of patterned paper in the same stack as the outer card using a circle die from the Spiral Circle Pull Card die set. The larger white circle was cut using the Clocks & Gears set - both Pop it Up sets were designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I also tucked a stitched scalloped border under the stamped peach panel.


Inside, I made it a Pop Up using the Lorna Label Pop it Ups die. I'm getting a lot of use out of my HUGS dies these days too.



 Another floral circle decorates the Pop Up label, and I fussy cut a little flower from the patterned paper to pop up on the peach banner.



Supplies:
Lorna Label Pop Up, Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Clocks & Gears (Large circle), Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Spiral Circle Pull Card (Small circle), Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Hugs die - Papertrey Ink
Stitched scalloped border - My Favorite Things
Patterned paper - American Crafts

Happy Card Duo

Good morning friends

I have a couple of cards today, made when I was playing with my new Blueprints dies. I had this pretty glittered floral paper leftover from a different project - in fact, both cards were made entirely from scraps!


The butterflies were punched out of the orange print, but I used a butterfly body from Karen Burniston's Butterfly Pivot card for the largest one. The 'smile' die was a freebie from a large Copic marker order at Taylored Expressions, and I think it's going to be fun!



Into my stash with these two.

Supplies:
Butterfly Accessories (Butterfly Body), Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Elizabeth Craft Designs Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape lg 6" roll.
Cream card stock - the Paper Studio
Patterned paper - DCWV

Blueprints #23 (smiles and banner) - MFT
Smile die - Taylored Expressions

C4C292 Challenge Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges blog. Our June hostess is Danielle Lounds and here is her challenge:  I'm a big fan of trees and over the last handful of years I have planted 6 apple trees around my house. My challenge to you is to plant a tree, er, well, just include a tree or branch on your project. That might be easier. ;) Debra Hensley is our Guest Designer for June.

I made a Thanksgiving card using the Tag Pivot card die designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs, and some pretty embossed and gold foiled patterned paper.


I had picked up this Thanksgiving stamp and label die set in the Spring when I was visiting Arizona ... it's hard to find actual Thanksgiving verses so I grabbed this set.


I also used the stitched edges dies to create some interest on the inside as well as add some stability to the edges since the patterned paper wasn't sturdy enough for my liking.


To cut the label, I stamped Happy Thanksgiving on a strip of white card stock (Using my MISTI!) and then used a portion of the label die to cut just the edges.

To finish the inside, I used more of Karen Burniston's Pop it Ups dies;  the All Season's Tree with a sprinkling of die cut leaves (that come with the tree die set) and the small Hay piece that comes with the Hay There Pop Stand set at the base of the tree.


Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge, and to get the information on our June Guest Designer. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C292.
