Twas the night before Christmas and the mice were getting ready to Deck the Halls! The Challenge today at Crazy 4 Challenges is to put 10 of anything on your card. I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card decorated for Christmas using Stampin Up’s Merry Mice.
Inside you find 10 mice getting ready to celebrate along with Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Twist Circle and Clocks & Gears.
I colored the little mice with my Copic markers – the left side is just stamped as is. But the right side……
was stamped on a window sheet and flipped over so they could all face towards the clock! Have fun seeing what all the Crazies did for this 10 challenge! Hugs, Fran
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 say “Ghouly!”
This challenge is a Halloween challenge – Girly or Ghouly. I started with the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Accordion Circle Card die, the Bat Stencil, Iron Fence Pop Up AND the Halloween Scene die! Yep – I went a little crazy!
And as you peer through the card, you’ll see it just gets worse 🙂
On the left inside panel I continued with the fence and spider – cutting out the center of the Accordion Circle die.
The center panel uses the Halloween Charms dies – ghost and pumpkins. Love the 3-D ghost!
The bats and spiders are cut from Stampin UP’s Black Glimmer paper and the sentiment is from Spooky Fun. And it was fun putting this scene together. Make sure you check out Karen’s Facebook page and blog for more spooky or girly inspiration! Hugs, Fran
I’ve combined some of my favorite things on this card – Christmas, Pop It Ups and Gingerbread Men! The front of this card uses some of the new Stampin Up Holiday Mini sets – Candy Cane Christmas and Cookie Cutter Christmas and a new Pop It Ups die – Anita Frames Pop It Ups!
Isn’t the Anita Frames Pop It Ups fun? And it’s really easy to assemble – love that! My gingerbread men are enjoying it too 🙂 They come with a matching punch that made this card super easy to put together! Hugs, Fran
This month’s group challenge is “Up!” so I decided to work with Bella & Friends again to create an encouragement card. I started with Karen Burniston’s cloud stencil on some Soft Sky card stock. The image is watercolored.
I love the stencil on this color. It creates such a soft, pretty background.
Inside I used the Lots of Pops die – one of my favorites because it works with so many different situations. I left the two side “pops” in and just used the ones in the center. This Bella is the one with the turtle. She’s riding in the Hot Air Balloon die (another very versatile die!) with clouds floating in the background
The banner is just scraps from the Subtles Designer paper pack. Up, up and away! Make sure to check Karen’s blog to see all the other designer’s cards! Hugs, Fran
Who’s that hiding in the background?
This was a thank you card I made using Karen Burniston’s Snowball the Sheep and Lots of Pops die. I used some now retired SU Designer paper and the banner punch.
Looks like Snowball is a part of the group now! Hugs, Fran
This is an easy shaker front for a cute Congrats card. Little shaker hearts using the heart from Karen Burniston’s Oval Pull card! But there’s a surprise inside!
Hoppy the Frog – otherwise know as Prince Charming 🙂 He sits on a Pop It Ups Lucy Label Pop It Ups.
This sentiment is computer generated and place on some Silver Foil paper.
He looks happy to see you 🙂 Want the tutorial on how to make this card? Head over to the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. Hugs, Fran
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
Today starts the June Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Challenge – Summer! What does summer mean to you? My first card is the Butterfly Pivot card with a twist – it’s a shaker! I stenciled the front with the new Stage It Stencil – Blossoms Layering. This is a 2 step stencil that let me do the petals in Calypso Coral and the centers in So Saffron. And, of course, I had to add some Dazzling Details to the centers!. The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Watercolor Wishes.
Because there are layering pieces in the Butterfly Pivot die, it was easy to cut a frame for my shaker. I used a sponge to add the ink in an ombre style.
On the inside I repeated the stenciling and added a banner that matches the front of the card. This is my idea of summer! Make sure to check out the other summer ideas on Karen’s Blog. Hugs, Fran
