House Pivot Panels & Tag Book Pop-Up Gingerbread House Christmas Card

Yesterday I shared some pictures of a New Home card which I made using the House Pivot Panels and Tag Book Pop-up die sets.
I used exactly the same die sets today, but this time for a Christmas gingerbread house card.

 I also used dies from the Rectangles - Crosshatch set, and hearts from the Katherine Label Pop-up die set.

The front of the card uses Karen's Merry Christmas die, and a little gingerbread man from her Christmas Charms die set.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!

House Pivot Panels & Tag Book Pop-Up New Home Card

I just wanted to share with you some photos of a card I made a while back, which ended up being published in the Die Cutting Essentials magazine, edition 45.
The dies are all from Karen Burniston, and there was a whole segment in the magazine on cards made with her super dies.

I absolutely love this House Pivot Panels die set, which I used inside the Tag Book Pop-up

I think all the elements which make up the little houses are so gorgeous!

I also used dies from the Rectangles - Crosshatch set, and the 'happy' from the Word Set 7 - Autumn  die set.
The stamp is from Reverse Confetti's 'Whole Lotta Happy' set.

The papers are all from First Edition's 'Floral Pavilion' 12x12 and 6x6 pads.

This picture shows the mechanism of the card better.

Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge - Oxide Ink Christmas Sleigh Pop-Up Card

 It's Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge day, and the theme this month is
We have to incorporate inks, paints, sprays or pastes into our card.
I decided to give myself the challenge of using zero patterned papers, and so I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks with foam applicators to create the graded background, and all the other coloured card stock on my card.

These are the colours I used.

I then splattered some Minc Reactive Mist Medium spray on the background, and heat embossed silver embossing powder over it.
I also added some snowflakes from the Sleigh Pop-Up die set to the background, then cut out the sleigh parts and gifts from some silver cardstock and my inked linen texture cardstock.

I cut a square from paper-backed red satin, using the Crosshatch Squares die set, then layered inked and plain squares on top, along with Karen Burniston's Merry Christmas die.

I had a little help from my new puppy Freddy while photographing!!

Upsy Daisy Pop Up 70th Birthday Card

Here's a card I made a while back for my lovely Mother-in-law's 70th birthday.
I used the unique Upsy Daisy Pop-Up die set from Karen Burniston, to create the three floating panels.

I used Crate Paper's Flourish 12x12 pad for the backdrop, and added some Stampin' Up ruffled ribbon.
The flowers are from Karen's Flowers and Bees die set, and also the leaves on the back of the card.

The 'birthday' is from Karen's Word Set 2 die set, the '70' is from a Sizzix/Stampin' Up Alphabet set, and 'Mum' is from Sizzix's Female Occasions die set.

I used the Crosshatch Ovals die set for a place to write a message.

Everything folds down beautifully!

The outside of the card is simple, with more patterned papers, ribbon and a tag from the Tag Book Pop Up die set.
