Cupcake Pop Up

Oh how sweet this new Cupcake Pop Up die is!  I had the cupcake ribbon in my stash and the perfect stamp to match - yay.  The stamp is from Riley and Company.  Add a few sprinkles to the cupcake and viola the front is complete.
 Now here's the big cupcake - so fun!  The Cupcake Pop Up die set comes with all the coordinating dies to decorate the cupcake.  I also used another die set called Nature Edges.  What's great about Nature Edges you ask?  Well, you can get both pieces for the top and bottom of your card with one cut!  The stitching is on both sides of the die so you can use both pieces for a positive/negative look.  The "Celebrate" fits perfectly in the bump.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's time for a sketch challenge with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Everyday Hero sunburst looking stamp to create a background using some of the new In Color colors - Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, and Powder Pink.  I stamped the little flower from Birthday Blooms with Berry Burst.  I stamped the sentiment onto a Banner Framelit - to make the black layer smaller, I simply hand trimmed it.
Happy Stampin',

Katherine Label Pop Up

Here's another of Karen Burniston's new dies called Katherine Label Pop Up.  I followed the same design as shown on the packaging.  It's simple to follow and has such a fun element of surprise when you open the card.
 When you open the card, the "Thanks" pops up and hovers on the right side of the card.  The Katherine Label Die would be great to use just for the decorative labels on flat cards.
Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros Challenge - Masculine Birthday

It's time for Karen Burniston's Paper Pros Challenge with a theme of masculine cards for the team.  I found this stamp set in my stash that has "Hey dude" and that's where my card started.  I knew I wanted cake on the card so out came Props 8.  Next, add some pattern paper and the front is done!  I used a black gel pen to color in the "Hey" and outline "Dude".
I used Lucy Label for the pop up and used a Fancy Label to stamp the sentiment.  I was pleased to find out that the Fancy Label fits the shape of the Lucy Label base pretty well.  Since I used a taller label, I adhered the cake to the tallest point of the little bump.  I colored in the sentiment using an Aquapainter and Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze Classic Ink.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Roses

June is Rose month and the Crazy 4 Challenges team was challenged to have a rose as one element or the only element on our cards.  I immediately thought of this stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Rose Wonder.
I swiped my paper with an Embossing Buddy first, then stamped the rose with Versamark.  I heat set using black embossing powder.  I colored the rose with an aquapainter and some of the new In Color colors called Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide.  Once the rose was dry, I fussy cut it out and adhered it to a panel of Tempting Turquoise that was embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.
I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to selectively ink the part of the sentiment that I wanted and then die cut using the Rose Garden Framelits.  I kept the paper in the die and traced around the edge with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel
