New Baby Charm Accordion Card

Just sharing a card today that I made using Karen Burniston's Charm Accordion die set, along with the gorgeous Baby Charms die set.

I love the little hanging charms, which I used with a bit of twine, and for the BABY blocks, I glued some clear acetate sheet to the back of the opening, to which I glued the blocks.
The patterned papers are all from My Mind's Eye 'Well Hello' 6x6 pad.

I used a stitched heart die from the Heart Pivot Panels set, to decorate each panel.

Circle Tag Book Pop-Up Garden Hello Card

Here's a card I made using Karen Burniston's Circle Tag Book Pop-up die set, along with the Garden Charms set.

I used the 'hello' die from the Word Set 6 - Summer set on the first little panel.

I inked the edges of some of the die cut pieces from the Garden Charms set, and layered up others.

On the card front I used Ovals - Crosshatch dies. All of the patterned papers are from Carta Bella's Spring Market 12x12 Collection.

Space Rocket Pop-Up Birthday Card

Here's a Rocket Pop-up card I made over the weekend, using Karen Burniston's brilliant Rocket Pop-up die set.
Most of my patterned papers are still in storage, so I made a background for the card using Tim Holtz Oxide Inks on black cardstock.
The Rocket Pop-up die set is straightforward to use, and comes together really quickly. When the card opens, the rocket is launched up above the card.

I teamed it with Karen Burniston's Happy Birthday die.

I added a little glitter cardstock space man from Karen Burniston's Space Charms die set, and used part of the moon from the Rocket Pop-up set. I added some black acrylic paint to all the moon pieces which I die cut from silver mirror card, and added stars with Tim Holtz's Crescent Moon and Stars Sizzix die.

For the card front, I used an oval from the Ovals - Crosshatch set, and the little alien and spaceship are from the Space Charms set.

Just a further picture to show the mechanism which holds the rocket up when the card opens - I think it's really clever!
