Christmas Trees Pop Stand Card

Karen Burniston has a great new release, and one of the die sets is her re-released Christmas Trees Pop Stand set, which I used for this card.

The papers are from an old K&Co pad, along with paper backed wood veneer.
The stars, trees and tree decorations all come in the Christmas Tree Pop Stand die set.

I used the Ovals - Crosshatch die set on the card front and inside.

To decorate the rest of the inside of the card, I used the Sizzix Originals Beautiful Flourish die, a couple of Tim Holtz's Mini Paper Snowflakes Thinlits dies, and some wooden snowflakes from Brutus Monroe.

My Minds Eye 'Well Hello' Sizzix Circle Flip-its Llama Card

 I wanted a card to send to my daughter Lucy (she's currently away from home as a missionary for our church), and she loves llamas! I'd bought these absolutely perfect papers from My Mind Eye, and teamed them with the Sizzix Circle Flip-its 4 Card.

I fussy cut the llama and cactus from 12x12 papers, and used letters from the Sizzix Thinlits Paper Cuts Alphabet.

Aren't they just the cutest papers ever!!

Explosion Pop-Up Birthday Card - New Karen Burniston 2018 Release

Here's a card I made using Karen Burniston's brand new Explosion Pop-Up die set!
The set provides the die cuts with fold lines for the concertina sides, plus the pop-up platform in the centre. It also comes with some lovely balloon decorator dies, one of which I used on the card front.

Also on the card front, I used Karen's Happy Birthday die, and some Squares - Crosshatch dies.

On the pop-up platform I added the large cupcake from the Cupcake Pop-up die set, with a candle from the Cake Pop-up set.
The 'Celebrate' is another of Karen's new release dies. I love these large word dies by Karen.

Karen Burniston's Design Team 'House' Challenge: Pop-Up New Home Card

It's Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge today, and the theme is 'House'!
Karen's house dies have always been among my favourite ever die sets, and I used two of them for this card - the House & Fence Pop-up, and the new House Pivot Panels die set.

I used the floating floor and large house from the House & Fence Pop-up set, then added some hand cut hills to the back of the card, and some smaller houses from the House Pivot Panels set.
All of the papers are from Carta Bella's Flora 2 12x12 and 6x6 pads.

I added some shrubbery to one pop-up piece in the floating floor, cut from the cloud/tree die that comes in the House Pivot Panels set. On the right hand pop-up piece, I added a tree from the Tree Pop-up die set. I cut down the tree trunk and branches to create a smaller tree, and used the cloud/tree die again for the foliage.

The card front features the house from the House & Fence Pop-up die set again, with 'happy' from the Word Set 7 - Autumn die set.
The stamp is from Reverse Confetti's 'Whole Lotta Happy' set.

Finally, I added some Ovals - Crosshatch, for a space to write a message.

Autumn Adirondack Chair Pop-Up Card - New Karen Burniston 2018 Release

Hurray! New Karen Burniston dies are available for pre-order, one of which is the Adirondack Chair Pop-Up!!
I used it for this Autumn card, which also uses Karen's new Autumn Elements die set, and Word Set 7 - Autumn die set. I went for slightly non-traditional Autumn colours!

For the card front, I layered up paper from My Mind's Eye 'Find Your Wings And Fly' collection, cut with dies from Karen's Squares and Circles - Crosshatch die sets. The pumpkin is from the Autumn Elements set. I cut it from cream textured card and coloured it with Tim Holtz Oxide Inks and a blending tool.

The Autumn Element die cuts inside the card were also cut from cream cardstock and coloured with Oxide Inks. I loved doing this - the inks blend so gorgeously, and the die cuts are so pretty!

To make the chair, I cut an extra chair piece out from pink card, stamped it with a Stampin' Up woodgrain stamp, and blended the edges with Oxide Ink.
I cut out a pillow by hand, and for the sentiment used the Word Set 7 - Autumn. I cut the words from cream cardstock, and again, blended them with Oxide Ink.
