More Birthday Step-Up Card Ideas

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with this Sizzix  Basic Step-Ups framelits die.  And, I am so happy I need to make a birthday card for my sister-in-law.  She loves flowers and I was thinking what a colorful flower/garden shop card I could create.

So using the Sizzix framelits die, along with my Cuttlebug and a lot of different paper flower punches I went to work and this is the finished card.

Here is a close up of the flowers, it amazing how much fun you can have creating with craft supplies that are just hanging around in your craft space .  I used numerous flower paper punches, scrap pieces of cardstock, foam to shape the flower with a stylis tool and some glue :)

For the flower pots I used rubber stamps that I had from Stampin Up and just covered up the flower images with my handmade flowers.

Step-Up Birthday Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

My nephew is turning 18 this week.  I really can’t believe how time flies, and if I am feeling like this I can only imagine how my sister is feeling :)

Anyway, I wanted this card to be fun, so thinking of fun I thought of candy, and this is what I created with those thoughts in mind.

I started with some candle stamps from the Stamps of Life, and colored with Copic markers.  (I made sure I stamped 18 candles..LOL)The saying was computer generated.

For the inside I used the basic Step-Ups die from Sizzix, and all of the candy and candy jars were stamped with a stamp set from Close To My Heart called Sweet as Sugar.  I cut each one out by hand.  All colored with Copic sketch markers,  and one candy jar was filled with different colored gumballs made from a circle paper punch.

This is the side view of the card so you can see how it really is 3-dimensional.   This die (Basic Step-Ups) from Sizzix is my favorite for the moment.  You can do sooooo much creating with it, so many possibilities.  Since it is a candy shop I wanted to create the look of an  awning that you would see outside on a shop in your local town.  So I used a border Framelit die and folded it around the base of the cardstock to get the look that I wanted.

I had so much fun making this card using so many different stamps and punches and dies, but I think it was worth it!

Having Fun With The Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with this Cricut Cartridge.  I have been seeing a lot of crafty bloggers talk about this exclusive Cricut Cartridge only available through Close To My Heart.

So, I had to find a demonstrator in my area and order this cartridge and get in on all the fun.  This was such a good purchase.  I think you have heard me say that before :)

There are so many images 700 to be exact, and the Pop-Up cards are too cool.  With Halloween coming up in the next few weeks I decided to play with this pop up function.  Using my Cricut Expression it cut perfectly.  The folding was a little tricky at first but with my score board it make it easier.

The inside of this card is so cool I don’t want to put anything on the outside but it looks sooo boring, so I decided to just make it super simple, and here is what I came up with.

Stickles added the perfect “bling” to this card.  I might have to add some to the inside too.  Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hope you have a Happy Halloween.
