I am the guest player at Crazy 4 Challenges this month and the theme for today is “Don’t Wear White after Labor Day!” So we were challenged to make an all white card 🙂 I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base (5 1/2 x 11) and embossed the background layer with Stampin Up’s Gently Falling embossing folder. The beautiful layered sleigh from Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Sleigh Gift Card Holder and some snow flakes from her All Season Tree.
Inside is a winter white scene adding in Pop It Ups Iron Fence and Holiday House. The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s new Holly Berry Happiness
It’s hard to see the sparkle but trust me, it’s there! I went kind of crazy with the glitter!
All the Crazies have created beautiful white cards so make sure to check them out! And let me know if you follow the “don’t wear white” rule. (I do – at least with shoes and purses!) Have a great day – Hugs, Fran
I thought I’d make a card for Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Can you see who’s hiding in my coffee cup? Take a close look –
I used Stampin Up’s Botanical Builder Framelits for the flowers, the bird punch for the leaves and the English Garden Designer Series paper. The cup is from Karen Burniston’s Cup Pop Stand, stenciled with her Medallion stencil and some stencil paste. When you open it up –
Lucky the Rabbit pops outs! 🙂 The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Helping Me Grow. And hidden behind Lucky –
Is the Sleigh Gift Card Holder Pop Up by Karen Burniston. It’s holding a wonder Starbucks card!
To make Lucky’s arm hang over the cup, I simply snipped where it was attached. Instead of using a large pearl on the inside, I punched a small circle in white and use Crystal Effects over top of it. This will keep the bulk down. Enjoy your coffee! Hugs, Fran
I’m still using sparkly, shiny card stock! I need a gift card holder for the season – always need them – so I pulled out some Brushed Silver card stock, some retired silver embossed Designer Series paper and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups dies and made this one.
Jolly the Mouse and Rudy the Reindeer are rockin’ out as they help Santa load the Pop It Up Sleigh with gift card holder! The sleigh is Red Foil and Red Glimmer paper. Rudy’s IPod is hand cut and the little records are circle punches. The nice thing about this Pop It Up is it has a little side Pop It Up stand for Rudy.
Jolly has his Santa glasses on 🙂 Rudy’s nose is coated with Crystal Effects. Lots of shine – lots of fun! Hugs, Fran
Let’s Celebrate! I used the Sleigh Gift Card die flat on the front of the soon-to-be-released Gift Card Holder Acordion die. The beautiful frame fits as one piece on the front. The sleigh is done in Stampin Up’s Silver Foil and Red Glimmer paper. It really shines.
The inside holds a gift card! The tabs to hold the card are built in so there’s no guess work involved. I love to give gift cards! Pop over to Karen’s Facebook page to see the rest of the designs for this month. Hugs, Fran
This card is fashioned after one Caz Counsell made when these dies were first introduced. I used the Merry & Bright stamp on the front and…
2 Jollys on the inside! They are loading Santa’s sleigh – with a gift card behind them. This Sleigh die is so much fun and I just love Jolly! On the right “Jolly”, I snipped off his tail (“cut off his tail with a carving knife” – sorry, couldn’t help it!) and tucked it in behind him so it wouldn’t stick out of the card.
I could have made a card for each member of the team and hopefully we’ll do something like this again. In the meantime, check out everyone’s creations on Karen’s Facebook page! Hugs, Fran
I have more family birthdays coming up and so I got out Celebrate Today and the matching die to make this card. The Designer Series paper is Schoolhouse and I love the color combo in this paper. I used Karen Burniston’s Agatha Edges to add an accent.
Inside I used the Pop It Ups new Sleigh Gift Card – without the sleigh! I simply added a piece of window sheet in the opening so the balloon basket would have a little more support.
Here’s what it looks like from the side. I love that this die can be used on it’s own! So versatile! Hugs, Fran
