Santa Paws

I think the new Santa Paws stamp set from Stampin' Up! is so adorable!  I also wanted to try out Karen Burniston's new Christmas Tree Pop Up.....so here's my card for the animal lover.
I colored the images using alcohol based markers.  I traced around the image with a gel pen by leaving the card stock in the die and traced around the edge.
OMG look at that adorable tree stamped with all the animals!  The sentiment also comes in the Santa Paws set.
Assembling the tree is very easy - much easier than I anticipated I'll admit.  Instead of a star, I thought it fitting to have a paw topper.


Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  

For the background I used the new Marbled background stamp from Stampin' Up!.  I inked up the stamp using Night of Navy, Cucumber Crush, and Tangelo Twist Classic ink.  I wanted to make a bright card so I added some flowers and a butterfly using the You Move Me bundle.  What I really like about the butterfly is the detail die is separate from the bold image so you can have a solid butterfly or use the detailed die for an inlaid look.

Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Monochromatic

It's a monochromatic theme with Crazy 4 Challenges today.  Make a card that has different shades of one color - you may use white or black as an accent.
I love how this card came out.  I saw a similar card on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect for the monochromatic challenge. Since purple is my favorite color that's what I chose to go with.  And not only that, I was gifted some of this beautiful purple cardstock from one of my customers (thank you very much Pattie).
I stamped the flower from Helping Me Grow onto a piece of Wisteria Wonder.  I stamped the flower from Birthday Blooms onto a scrap piece of the purple and fussy cut it out.  This is a very simple card to make but it's just SO pretty!  Or am I just biased because purple is my favorite color?

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros challenge - Monochromatic

I set the theme for this months' Paper Pros challenge - Monochromatic.  It's easy enough to pick a color and use many shades of that color.  The idea for this card came from taking my son to see the new Emoji movie.  We were talking about the commercial we saw about the poo saying we're #2.  We missed our nephew's birthday and he wants to see the movie too.....ok see where I'm going here?


 I used the frosting die from Cupcake Pop Up to make the poo.  I thought the sentiment was very fitting to my belated situation LOL.  I used several labels from Katherine Label to adhere my punny sentiment to.

For the inside, I made a family of poo wishing my nephew a happy birthday.  I think he'll get a kick out of this card or at least I hope so because I couldn't stop laughing as I was making it.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Summer Fun

Let's have some Summer Fun with Crazy 4 Challenges!  I am hosting the challenges for the month of August.  Our guest designer is Fran Sabad.
Who doesn't like to take it easy and relax in the summer?  That was my thinking for our challenge this month.  The team was told to make a bright and cheerful card - easy right?
I used Karen Burniston's new Flower Pot Pop Up and Twist Panel Pop Up to create this beauty.  I stamped the sentiment from Five for All onto a die cut.  The front is a simple lead in for the bouquet inside!
WOW!  When you open the card, the flower pot opens up to reveal all those pretty flowers.  I love it, and I mean who wouldn't love to receive this card?

Five for All

I saw a similar card to this one on Pinterest and I knew I had to make one.
 I used one of my new favorite stamp sets from Stampin' Up! called Five for All for the perfect sentiment for a kid.  I die cut some fun foam to make the shaker ring.  I had these fun candles from Elizabeth Craft Designs already die cut and ready to go.  I had some blue acetate in my stash - I thought the color added a bit more fun to the card.
And a simple sentiment on the inside completes this card.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel
