Oz Waterfall Card


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing another Waterfall Card I created using Karen Burniston's Frame Pull Pop-up die set. It is really easy to adapt the Frame Pull Pop-up to make it suitable for a Waterfall Card, Karen Burniston showed us how a few months ago in her video here.


Here is a quick video to see my card in action.


To decorate my card I used Craftin' Desert Divas' Trolls of Oz stamp set which was released earlier this year. 
For the background of each panel I used the rectangle die included in the Frame Pull Pop-up die set to die cut patterned paper. To create the flower and grass background I used dies from Lawn Fawn's Shadow Box Card Spring Add On & Shadow Box Card Park Add On die sets 


For the background on the base of my card, I created a "Yellow Brick Road", by stamping Simon Says Stamp Deco Diamonds Background Stamp onto white cardstock and embossed using white embossing powder and then sponging on three colors of yellow/orange Distress Oxide inks.


Here is a look at the final waterfall panel as you pull the tab further out. As each waterfall panel flips over it reveals a new image and sentiment.


I decided to keep this card as a flat card rather than adhered to a folded card. On the back of the waterfall panel I have added another white rectangle panel which is die cut using the largest rectangle from Heffy Doodles Imperial Stitched Rectangles die set.

I also added a couple more images and the last sentiment included in the stamp set.

Magnolia Thank You For Your Kindness


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Thank You card I created recently.

To create the pink background I used Alcohol Inks & Yupo Paper. To create the fancy edge along the bottom of the panel, I used one of the border dies from MFT Stamps Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges die set.


I used Clearly Besotted's Magnificent Magnolia Clear Stamp set which was a limited edition stamp set created for Stamptember 2018.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set and was die cut using Honey Bee Stamp's Banner Builder die set.


For the inside of the card I added the bottom section of the alcohol inked background along the bottom of the card. 

I added another of the flower and sentiment to the card.

Zap, Boom Super Cats


Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a birthday card to share with you today.

To create my card I started by die cutting the Paper Rose Studio's Brick Wall Border into the front of a White Side Folding Card. I then sponged on some Gina K Designs Faded Brick ink onto another piece of white cardstock and adhered this to the inside of the card so it shows through the brick border.

Along the bottom of the card I added some grass using Lawn Fawn's Grassy Hillside Border die set.

To decorate my card I used MFT Stamps Super Cat Clear Stamp set.


For the inside of my card I added two sentiments which have been stamped onto aqua cardstock and then die cut using Honey Bee Stamp's Banner Builder die set. The sentiments are both from MFT Stamps Super Dog stamp set. I also added one of the super cats to the top right hand corner of the card.

Cold Hands Warm Hearts


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have a wintered themed birthday card to share with you. We are in the middle of summer where I live, however as I recently managed to get hold on this cute "Bundled Up" stamp set from Concord & 9th I decided to create a winter scene card.

The kids are stamped using black ink and then I used the coordinating solid clothing/accessory stamps and Altenew inks to add color to the whole image. I wasn't sure whether I would like this type of coloring, but it was pretty easy to do.


For the background of my card I used Ellen Hutson's Snowfall Backdrop die which I die cut using white card stock and then colored using Distress Oxide inks in a number of different blues.

I added the snow to the bottom of the card using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders.

To finish off the front of the card I added a few of the sentiments from the stamp set.


For the inside of the card I added two more of the sentiments and added the boy and girl to the bottom of the card.

Swinging By


Hi Crafty Friends,

t’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As challenge hostess for March, I continue to issue the challenges.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for a sketch challenge.



To create my card I started by created the stencilled background on the two panels. For this I used Altenew's Beveled Squares Stencil using Distress Oxide inks.

I used Neat and Tangled's Swinging by Clear Stamp set, which I adhered to a Wonky Stitched Circle from MFT Stamps. 

For the panel which goes across the card I used Crafter's Companion Edge'ables Word Dies - Thinking and then stamped the "Of You" in pink along the bottom edge of the sentiment.


For the inside of my card I added stencilled panels to both edges of the card.

I created a pop-up card using the KB Riley LLC's Rockin' Rectangles Pop-up die set,  turning the die so it is in a portrait orientation and so the rectangle is at the top part of the card. 

I added the "Swinging By" sentiment which is also included in the stamp set used on the front of the card.

For the "Hello" and sentiment on the lower part of the card, I used Crafter's Companion Edge'ables Word Die - Hello. The "from me to you" sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and then die cut using the Honey Bee Stamps Banner Builder die set.


Here is another photo of the inside of my card taken at a different angle, so you can see the pop up portion of the card a little better.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Divinity Designs - Have A Wonderful Birthday


Hi Crafty Friends,

 I am sharing 2 more projects using some of the Divinity Designs March Release products. Today I am  focusing on the new Test Tube Trio die set along with the coordinating Treat Tag Sentiments 3 Clear Stamp set and also the Birthday Stamp/ Die Duos set. 


For my card I used Divinity Designs Center Step Card and Center Step Card Layers die set to create my card. 

To decorate my card I used papers from the Beautiful Blooms 6 x 6 Paper Pad. As the paper I used for my card and treat box, features some beautiful flowers it seemed a shame to cover those up, so I kept my card fairly simple.


For the sentiment I used Divinity Designs new Birthday Stamp/Die Duos. This set features two birthday word sentiments (one with a capital B and the other with a lower case B). I also added a sentiment which is included in the stamp set.

To finish off the front of the card I added a bow which is from the Treat Box Trio die set.


For the inside of my card I die cut the back of the main Center Step Card die and trimmed it down slightly to fit inside the card. I added the patterned paper along the bottom of the card.

For the sentiment I used the Circles and new Scalloped Circles die sets and then added the 'birthday' and stamped sentiments.


I used the Test Tube Trio die set to create this fun test tube holder which could be used for any occasion, this one obviously is for a birthday.

This die set includes the dies to create the Test Tube Holder, the layers, four different tag dies and the cute bow.


I used some of the sentiments from the Treat Tag Sentiments 3 Clear Stamp set to create the tags which I attached to the test tubes and to the front of the holder. I also added a bow to the front of the holder.


I added patterned paper to the back of the Test Tube Holder. This gives you a place to add a hand written greeting if desired.

Boot Scootin' Birthday


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Tomorrow is National Shoe the World Day.  Many teens and children around the world do not have a pair of shoes to wear, despite the climate or terrain, they walk barefoot.  Let’s create a card using any type of shoe – cowboy boots, heels, flip-flops, to help the awareness to donate any shoes you may no longer need.

For my card today I created a Sliding Window Card or Sliding Pop-up Card using Sunny Studio Stamps Sliding Window die set. 
To create the wood floor base I used Hero Arts Wood Floor Bold Prints stamp which I embossed in white onto white cardstock. I then applied Age Mahogany, Abandoned Coral and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide inks for an ombre look.

To decorate my card I used Art Impressions new Cowgirls Clear stamp set, as soon as I saw this stamp set I knew it would be perfect for this challenge. 
I added two sentiments to my card which are revealed when you pull the tab at the top of the card. One is under the image (Warm & Cozy" and the other is on the top section of the pull out panel just under the pink pull tab.
The pull tab is from Lawn Fawn's Double Slider Surprise die set.

I kept this card as a flat card rather than adding it to a folded card, so I decorated the back of the card by adding some more of the wood floor in ombre fashion along the bottom of the card. I also added two sentiments from the Cowgirls stamp set and stars from Altenew's Halftone Stars stamp set.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

I used the A Way With Words Gable Box die set to create the treat box die cut using ModaScrap My Little Girl and My Little Boy Patterned Paper Pack.

Hello Spring


Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our February Paper Pros challenge. This month our challenge is hosted by Sandy Diller who has given us the theme .... Spring Fever.

I decided to create another Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up card using the acetate window on the front. You can find Karen's tutorial on how to create this style of card here.



Here is a quick video to see my card in action.




For the background of my card I used Altenew's Pinstripe Stamp set, stamping onto white cardstock using black ink and then turning the card by 90 degrees and stamping again to create a diamond pattern.

For the flowers I again used an Altenew stamp set ... this time Ruffled Flowers. The 'sweet friend' sentiment is also included in the set.


Along the left side of the card I added a Crafter's Companion Hello Edge'ables Word die set. To color the sentiment I sponged the same two orange inks I used for the flowers to give an ombre effect.


I used the scallop rectangle included in the Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up die set to add a sentiment which is from Stampendous. 

I also stamped and die cut a few more flowers and cut them up to add to the sentiment panel, the background and the left panel on the front of the card.

You can see what the other "Paper Pros" created for this challenge on their blogs:
