June Pop It Ups Designer Challenge – Ahoy, Dad

Day 2 of the Pop It Ups Designer Challenge brings me to Father’s Day.  I used Karen Burniston’s Circle Accordion Album  and Stampin Up’s Swirly Bird to make a fun Father’s Day card for any sea loving dad!

I also used Stampin Up”s Guy Greetings for the middle of my card.  I love how the Ring Album die lets you chose the length of your card!  Hope you enjoy this nautical look.  Make sure to check out Karen’s blog to see the other summer cards!  Hugs, Fran

To a Classic

The challenge for Karen Burniston’s design team continues today to use 3 or more Pop It Ups die to create a card.  For this card I used the Star accordion die, Star Edge, and Circle Accordion die.  The stamp set is Guy Greetings from the Occasions Mini.

To get the “Grandfather” in the center of the card, I masked off the “pa” part of Grandpa and stamped it with “Father.”  Since I was using Photopolymer stamps – it was easy.  The Star and Circle Accordion dies go together nicely (no fiddling around – the just work together!)  This was fun to make!  Hugs, Fran

One of the Splitcoast Creative Crew challenges this month is to take a frame and repurpose it with stuff from a guy’s garage.  Funny – because my garage contains cars and stamps!  I decided to play along and created this framed piece using stamps from Guy Greetings and the Typeset DSP.  Here are some close ups –

I sponged the squares with Crumb Cake and added some Real Red to just a few places to highlight some of the details.  You can play along too using the key word CCREW0115SF
