Spring Is In The Air

With all the craziness going on right now, I thought a little cheeriness would be in order.  Today I'm sharing the second card I made for the Karen Burniston Hochanda launch.
I've used the Flower Pot die set along with the Flower & Bee set and words from Word Set 1 and the  Circles - Crosshatch.

Hope you like it.

Stay happy and crafty,

Hello friends,

I'm dropping by to share a card that I recently made using the Explosion Pop Up from Karen Burniston.  Karen Burniston "in Cahoots with Riley and company" just had a fabulous launch with Hochanda, a craft TV channel in the UK. The design team made cards for her first broadcast, this is one of the cards I made.


Happy Crafting,

In Case You Missed It!

Hi everyone and welcome,

Today is the first Tuesday of the month and it is time for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This month Karen has asked us to make a do over or repost something that we especially like.  I have lots of birthdays this month so I have started with a do over card that I made for my friend Susie in December.  This time the card is for my son who has a birthday on March 20th.

Since this one is a masculine card, I decided to go with this cute little truck.  I added some gifts in the bed and added some cute "little" bows from the Cake Trims.  The squares are the Crosshatch Squares.

 I used coordinating colors on the Gift Pivot Panel on the inside for a cheerful card.  These bright colors are perfect for a Spring Birthday.

Here is the inspiration card that started the whole thing.

Don't forget to check out all the great cards from my talented team mates on the
Karen Burniston Pop Up Peeps.

Stay Crafty,

"Double" That's The Challenge

Hello friends and welcome back,

 It's the first Tuesday of the month and, of course, that means Designer Challenge Day! YAY!

Here is Karen's Challenge to the team - Theme: "DOUBLE" - make a card of any theme using a doubling technique. 

I decided to take it one step further and do a "DOUBLE", "DOUBLE".  I used two different pop-up dies with a, you guessed it, double Pivot Panel.   For my card, I combined the Fancy Label Accordion with the Heart Pivot Panel.

I have made a full instructional video for you.  It's not as hard as it may look. Please take a look, I try to keep my videos as short as possible so you can learn all about it and rewind as much as needed.

Be sure to stop by and join the fun on the Facebook page - Karen Burniston's Pop Up Peeps.
Tune in tomorrow to see Karen's new technique.  I will have a link for you here.

Stay Crafty, see you soon,
