I love making Slimline cards and finding ways to use Karen Burniston's Pop-up die sets in them. So for my first card today I created a Landscape Slimline card with a 3/4 length front. This card measures 3 7/8 inches x 8 1/2 inches when closed.

This style of card works well  for the Paper Frames Pop-up die set which is what I used for my card today. I had to go with the wider sized slimline, so that the pop-up element would fit into my card.

I love owls, so when I saw this fun stamp set from Sassy and Crafty ... You're a Hoot stamp set, I knew I needed to use it for my card. I stamped each of the owls and the clothing twice and the branch four times and cut them out so I could decorate my card inside and out.

All the sentiments on this card are also included in the Sassy and Crafty stamp set.


I added the rectangle and Frame from the Slim Flaps and Frames die set to use to add a space to write a personal message.


The front of my card measures 3 7/8 inches x 5 1/2 inches, so that the right side of the inside of the card can be seen when the card is closed.

I used the Crosshatch Ovals die set to add to the front panel, adding the sentiment in the centre. I decorated the oval using two of the owls, branches and flowers.


I used a speech bubble from the Spinner Square Pop-up to add the "whoo whoo" sentiment which part of the sentiment "Guess Whoo" from the owl stamp set.


For my second card today I have a  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

When I was looking at Sassy and Crafty's stamps to select which ones to ask for for the hop, I came across this fun Plushies - Friendly Pugs Stamp set. As I have a grand puppy that is a pug, I just had to ask for this set. 


I used Karen Burniston's Alphabet die set to add the "PUG HUGS" sentiment to the narrow strip at the left side of the card. I also added two scallop borders using the Border Blends Argyle die set.


I used the "flying by" sentiment on the inside of the Rockin' Rectangle arm which is  from Sassy and Crafty's You're A Hoot Stamp set ... as the pugs are in a plane it was perfect to use with the image I used on this card. I used oval dies from the Oval Frames Pop-up die set.

The blue background with the white strips was created using Sassy and Crafty's Party Time Stencil. I used Versamark ink to add ink through the stencil onto white cardstock, which I then covered with white embossing powder and heat set. I then used Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass; Broken China and Faded Jeans to add a ombre effect with blue inks.

I also used the speech bubble again for this card, this time stamping the "Celebrate" from the pug stamp set. The speech bubble is from the Spinner Square Pop-up die set.

Well that is about it from me today, thank you for dropping by. The next stop on the hop is the amazing Justin

I love the 3/4 front panel on your slimline card -- am going to have to try that in the future. And we all knew you'd use an owl!

The owls are fantastic. My daughter loves it too.
Your second card is also great with those 2 flying ones

The big eyed owls are adorable. I love all of the details on them.

These are both stinkin' adorable! The owls are sweet and I really liked the idea of using acetate for part of the front of the 2nd card (the pugs). Good stamp choices, for sure, and design execution is point-on. Thanks.
