Two Folds - the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi everyone,

Today is the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge and Karen has asked us to make a card with two folds.  Of course with two folds there is more room for pop ups.

I cut my card base 6" X 12" and then scored on the long side at 2", 4", 8" and 10"

When you slide off the belly band - there are two folds to place a pop up in.  One for the tent and one for the tree.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team made by stopping by the FB page, Karen Burniston Pop Up Peeps.

See you soon,

Live Like Someone Left The Gate Open

Just stopping by for a fast, clean and simple birthday card.  You don't need to stress over making cards with pop ups - I used the Rockin Rectangle die set and some adorable paper to create this card for a friend.

To create this card all I needed was two dies from Karen Burniston, the Happy Birthday and the Rockin Rectangle.  Throw in a little paper and glue and it's good to go.

Have a Creative Day,

Vintage Vignettes

Hi Friends,

Want to have some fun?  I had a blast making these adorable vignettes from projector slides.  If you don't have any slides, no worries, I have provided a link below so you can purchase some.  

Your can see all the details in my video below.  I plan to use mine to make card fronts or add them to mixed media projects.  

Many thanks to Monica from taylormadecards4u for sharing this idea.  You can buy the slides in her store and also see her video.

This project is for the Vintage Journey monthly challenge, you can see what the team made by 

Have a creative weekend,

The Challenge Is?

Hello my crafty friends,
Today is the first Tuesday for the month and, of course, that means it's time for the Karen
Burniston Designer Challenge.  This month it is all about the new Pattern Plates.  A while back
I shared the new release from Karen and talked about how to get the best cutting results
from these fabulous plates.  You can see that video here.  I showed three card fronts (shown 
below) and promised to finish the inside and share them with you.  I'm sharing the third and 
final one today.  I got lots of good comments about this design including my color choices.

For this card, I decided to finish it for a friend that I have not seen since the beginning of
the stay at home order.  We are still staying in as much as possible but hope to be able
to travel later this summer.

This bold choice of purple and lime green is one of my favorites and I'm happy that you like it too.

Here is my finished card using the Upsy Daisy Pop Up die set and also some decorative strips from the Tile Pattern Plate.  As you can see, the Pattern Plates can be used for more that a card front.  Ok, who
doesn't love these adorable hedgehogs?

To see how to assemble this die set - see Karen's video here.

Below you will find a link to the products I used.

Until Next Time,

You're the GOAT (greatest of all time)

Hello friends,

It is graduation time and it's just not the same as it used to be. What is?  Instead of getting all bothered about it I decided to poke a little fun.  I'm a huge Jeopardy fan so I got this idea after seeing Ken Jennings talk about it on TV.  

You will find all the products I used linked below if you care to click around.

I made my card using dies from Karen Burniston featuring the Rockin Rectangle.

Here it is in action -

Congrats to all who graduated this year,
