New Baby Pop Up


Welcome My Crafty Friends,

hoping that you are all staying safe and healthy during these trying times.

Today I have another Karen Burniston Surprise Pop Up Ball card for you. My card was created using Boel Ask’s card which she posted March 1, 2020.   These pop up balls are addicting.

Have tried several times to upload the video for this but it will not upload – sorry!  You can see it on Facebook – Karen Burniston Pop-Up Peeps page.

Made 2 Surprise Pop Up Balls from flesh colored cardstock.  Karen Burniston has a great assembly video for making the ball.

For the arms I drew and fussy cut from flesh colored cardstock I did single layer but another time I would double up to make them a little sturdier.

For the feet I actually had cut out a baby from flesh colored cardstock then  cut the lower half attach to bottom ball.

For the diaper decorative pieces were cut from white cardstock then attached around the bottom attach a small safety pin to 1 piece add that to center front of bottom half of bottom ball.

Bib was cut from light blue cardstock on Cricut then trimmed up.  Small heart was attached to center then attached to center top of bottom ball.

Pacifier was created using a couple of circle dies from light and medium blue cardstock.  Attached using dimensional dots.

Hair was created using wool roving.

Words were cut twice from cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back – once from white once from medium blue.  Adhered blue first then added white offsetting just a little to give shadow effect.

I do hope that this is an inspiration for you to try making a Surprise Pop Up card – there are so many great designs on Karen Burniston Pop Up Peep Facebook Page.

Graduation Pop Ups

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Hope you all are enjoying your summer.

‘Tis the season – Graduation I had 3 our granddaughter graduating from college, our grandson from high school and my regional manager’s daughter from high school and she was magna cum laude WOW.  I decided to make some pop up cards using Karen Burniston’s Surprise Pop Up Ball along with some of her other dies.  I must give the maker of the original graduation  card acknowledgement her name is Cynthia Johnson-Dailey her card was my inspiration.  I used Karen Burniston’s YouTube video for the double ball  for assembly only then created from there using picture of Cynthia’s card as a guide as she did not have a tutorial.  Fun card but doing 3 at once was a bit overwhelming at times.

I have video on my Facebook page but can’t seem to get it from my phone to my computer.

This Surprise Pop Up Ball die set is so much fun and has so many possibilities.  I have posted links below for dies I have used just click on the item it will take you directly to site.  If you should purchase I do get a small commission but you do not pay anything extra.

Thanks for stopping by today hope these cards have inspired you to make a Pop Up Ball Card as they are really fun and the recipients really do enjoy them.

Until Next Time – Happy Crafting!

Card is 6 X 6 from white cardstock.  Black cardstock cut 5-3/4″ square attached to card front using clear double sided adhesive.  White cardstock cut 5-1/2″ square embossed then adhered to card front.

Susan’s Garden Notes Galvanized Bucket cut twice once from black cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on back.  Adhered 1 on top of other.    Texture paste was spread over bucket left to dry.  Fresh Copper Nuvo Embellishment Mousse spread over bucket and handle.  The very center of handle was cut 3 times from black cardstock then adhered to center.  Couple of pop dots adhered to back center of bucket then adhered to right side of card front leaving opening at top.  Adhere handle to bucket.

Several Garden Notes Ladder Ferns were cut from green cardstock shaded and shaped then adhered in bucket using Kids Choice Glue.

5 Daffodils were created using Susan’s Garden Notes Daffodil / Narcissus die set cut from white cardstock, colored with Copic Markers then shaped (Susan has great videos on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club).  Daffodils were adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.
