More Birthday Cards

 Howdy friends,

I am continuing to make birthday cards as I have several to celebrate this month.  Here are two cards I made using the Cupcake Pop Up die set from Karen Burniston.  They are the same card in two different colors.  I have been practicing my Copic coloring and needed to use some of the things I've colored.  The image on the front of the cards is the adorable House Mouse.

I've linked the dies that I used below so you can click on the photo to get more information.

Have a great week,

Triple Flip + 2

 Hi all,

Today is the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge and this months theme is Thinking of You.  I made a card that is for the new year and converted the Triple Flip die set into a 5 panel card for a slimline.  Here is my video on how to do it - enjoy!

See you soon, and Happy New Year,

Time for Birthday Cards

 Now that it's too late to make and mail Christmas cards for this year - it's time to think about Birthday Cards.  I have plenty of birthdays in November, December and January.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for a November birthday.

I used fall colors but you could use any for this card.  Karen Burniston's great "Happy Birthday" along with the Rectangles Crosshatch to make the front go together quickly, just add a little ribbon.

I used a couple more Crosshatches on the inside for the greeting and then used the Rocket Pop Up to animate the butterfly on the inside.  I used acetate for the mechanism so it appears that the butterfly is flying up when the card is opened. 

I finished off the card by adding a few flowers from the Flower and Bee set.

See you soon and Merry Christmas,

Happy Hanukah

I want to wish all my Jewish friends a Happy Hanukah.  Each year I make one Hanukah card for our good friends who celebrate the Season of Light.  This year I used the Karen Burniston Swap n Pop die set to create this card where the Star of David disappears as the Minora appears.

For this card I cut two triangles from glittered paper to create the Star of David.  For the Minora I simply cut a section from scrapbook paper and printed the phrases on my computer.

May love and light fill your home,

 Happy Holidays my friends,  

I recently got some new dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs so thought it would be a good time to share one of my cards with you.  I used the Create a Wreath from Suzanne Cannon and the Joy stamp from Sue Smith.

All the paper I used today is from Stampin' Up.  I just like there paper and use it quite a lot. 

This is a 5.5" square card.  I began by layering my paper on the front and then using a circle die to make a template.  This circle will be completely covered when I'm done so just ignore the dots.  I stamped and embossed the word joy using red embossing power.  

I used the Craft Drops from Elizabeth Craft to make the berries on each leaf.  I did this step the day before so the drops would be completely dry for assembly.  I layered the leaves and added the bow which is included in the Create a Wreath die set.

Happy Holidays,
