Twisted Pop Up Card

 Here is another new technique I decided to try out; the Twisted Pop Up Card.  There are a lot of great tutorials out there and tons on Pinterest for inspiration.  Check out this one on Kylie's Cards and Things.

I used a lot of different techniques on this card.  I stamped, colored with Copics, used my Big Kick to die cut the donuts and mini coffee cups, paper punched hearts.....what I didn't get to do was use pop up dots.  If you follow me, you will know how much I love pop up dots and put them on everything.  But due to the style of this card, I didn't think that they would fit, once I twisted it back together.

I decided to use some of my favorite things on this card, coffee and donuts!  Not to mention I used My Favorite Things stamps on it as well!

The donuts were cut out using a tiny die from Taylored Expressions and then I added some Diamond Glaze onto the frosting.  The big coffee cups were made using a few paper punches and a trimmer.  You can find templates, dies, and SVG cups for them on-line, but it was very easy just to make them by hand.

Once the card is folded and twisted to the A2 size, I made a belly band to hold it all together.  You can see it in the first picture at the top of this post.

Right now, I wish I had a donut, but it looks like it's going to start to storm again, so I  will not be venturing out!

Happy Birthday Easel Card

Just working on replenishing some of stash of cards.  I love making easel cards, I just think they are fun.

This card was made by combining the Pure Innocence Happy Banner with the Papertrey Ink Birthday die.  The cake was made with my Cricut.  Flower and balloon embellishments were made with paper punches.  Lots of pop up dots (as usual), stickles, diamond glaze and hand drawn ballon strings finish off the card.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day! 

Here is another fun and exciting folded card that I tried out.  I've done side step cards before, but this time I decided to go big!  I found this tutorial on Pinterest.

 My sister and I went to the Scrapbook Expo a few ago and I picked up a few new Paper Nest Stamps.   This one is Cupcake Avery.  I colored her with Copic markers.  The flowers and the heart border were cut with Papertrey Ink dies.

Mother's Day Z-Fold Card

Mother's Day is just a few days away and I've been working on learning new techniques to make cards more exciting.  This is my first attempt at a Z-Fold card.  I used this card as my inspiration.

There is a lot of cutting in this card.  I used a variety of dies to cut the flowers, leaves, clouds, and the grass.  Additionally, I used my Cricut to cut the tulips.  There are lots of pop up dots, buttons, and diamond glaze to add dimension.

Paper:  My Favorite Things, Jillibean Designs, Bazzill, The Paper Studio, Echo Park
