Go Wild

 Hi friends,

I'm here to share a card I made for no particular reason other than to cheer a friend.   My friend Susie came over to my house for a crafting day and she brought along some fun Art by Marlene papers and punch out images and she was so generous to share with me.  I made this card that day using her supplies along with the Photo Collage and Go Wild dies from Karen Burniston. It was a fun day with a generous friend.


This paper collection is so wacky and colorful that I just had to make my card a little outside the box.  I used the eyes from another cut out over the girls face and then added some glasses where her boobs go.


On the inside I used some of the colorful paper on the background and then on the arms of the Photo Collage I used lots of glasses and stars.  The eyes have it!


Have a great week,

S@ndy

Set the Scene - June challenge

 Set the scene - that's the June challenge so I decided the farm is the place to be.  This fun Fancy Label Accordion card is packed with all sorts of farm elements.  I started with the farm house and went all the way over to the cow pasture.

Happy Birthday Slim Flap card

 Hello friends and welcome back,

Today I have a fun card to share that is yet another way to get more use from your favorite dies.  I have used the Slip Flap die set from Karen Burniston here but have used a large flap on the top that comes down over the other flaps to create a different look.  This card was for our son who had a birthday in March.

Have a great week and be creative,

Here are my cards for the hop -


I used Karen's Triple Flip for this card along with the Petunia Chicken Tales from Sassy & Crafty.  I have a friend who likes to get together for crafting - with the pandemic we haven't been able to get together until recently - all being vaccinated.  I made this card for her as an invitation to come over. I stamped the adorable chickens on panels from the Waterfall die set because they are a little larger than the panels from the Triple Flip.  Because they are larger - I decided to add an egg in the center stamped with some little flowers from the stamp set.

When the card is flipped - you see another great stamped image as well as some charms from the Office Charms die set.  I used my label maker to add "Crafting Forever Housework Whenever".



For my second card I used the Sassy Girls - Sing Stamp along with the Comic Book Stencil 2 pack.  I stamped the Sassy Girl and the Sing -  then cut them out with the Scan & Cut, popped them both up with foam tape.  I used white for the background and the stenciled the rays from the Comic Book stencil going in lots of different directions.  
 

For the inside of the card I used the stamp for the sentiment, added some color with the stencil and made it pop by using the KB Riley Rocking Rectangle.

NEW DIES - That's the Theme

 Hey Karen Burniston fans - it's time for the monthly designer challenge and this month we are to make something using dies from the new release.  I decided to use the Waterfall die set along with one of my all time favorite stamp sets.  I have had this stamp set forever and still love it and it goes perfectly with the Waterfall.  I did have to make the panels larger than the ones on the die set but the mechanism works exactly the same way. 

You can see how this card work in the short video below and check out the products I used as well.




Have a creative week,

S@ndy

Here is Karen's assembly video - she explains it much better than I can.

Tiny Light Up Mushroom House

 Hello friends,

Earlier this week Karen Burniston released 12 new die sets.  It was an exciting day with a blog hop and chances to win prizes, it just doesn't get any better.  I shared my Tiny Mushroom House in a Fairy Garden but I did not reveal all the charm of this card.  Today I have more details to share about my card as well as a video on how I made the Tiny Mushroom House light up!  Since Karen is so good at making instruction videos I decided to let her do that part and I would show you the alterations that I made.  Karen's videos are linked below as well as all the products I used to make this card.






I used the new Sim Flaps for my card.


Inside I added the Tiny Trees and the Mushroom house.  There are some additional decorations from other die sets to make it even more magical.  



So here it is - I'm in love with this set and just can't seem to stop making them.  

See you soon, 
S@ndy
