New Home 1

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have another card that I created for my sweet young co-worker that left for a new job.  Her and her hubby recently purchased a new home so I wanted to do something to celebrate that great event.  For this card I have used Karen Burniston’s House & Fence Pop Up as well as an old Pop It Ups All Seasons Tree Die set and dog is from Susan’s Garden CountryScapes – Critters 5 and daffodils from Garden Edges Daffodil.  The Congrats is Suzanne Cannon – A Way With Words stamped sentiment is Close to My Heart Happy for You set.

Another fun card hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy Crafting!


Good Luck

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card that I created for a sweet co-worker who has taken another job.  I chose to use Karen Burniston’s Circle Tag Pop Up die set for my card also using the Garden Charms.  Fun card to create but wish I had used the same color for card base as I did on the Pop Up that white just seems to jump out at me.

Thanks for stopping by!



Rudy the Reindeer

Wk 7 Reindeer 1Wk 7 Reindeer 2

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I am posting a card I created for my Christmas Card Challenge group.  This is week 7 of the challenge and the theme this week it is reindeer.  My card was created using Karen Burniston’s new Rockin’ Rectangle Pop Up, Border Blends – Argyle along with an old die of her’s Rudy the Reindeer.  My sentiment was stamped using ECD Classic Christmas Sentiments clear stamps the tree is Stampin Up In The Woods Framelits Dies.

Oh what fun I had creating this card this will be another very versatile die set like the  Square  Spinner Pop Up that I have been making so many cards with.

If you are like me and can’t buy all Karen’s dies (Oh how I wish I could) I really believe the Square Spinner Pop Up and the Rockin’ Rectangle Pop Up will give you the biggest bang for your buck!

Thanks for stopping by today – soon I will be posting some more of my flower cards.

Until next time – Happy Crafting!

Here are a few more Square Spinner Pop Up cards I have been creating using Karen Burniston’s #1042 Square Spinner Pop Up Die Set along with some of Karen’s old discontinued dies as well as the baby chick from her new #1074 Spring Animals and #1090 Border Blends – Argyle.  It is great that they can be used together to create lots of cards.

Hello my crafty friends,

Welcome to my blog. It has been a while since I posted I am working on some new flowers which I will be posting soon but until then  I have a quick Valentine I have made for my dear friend’s grandson who is 3 and yes it is another Square Spinner Pop Up I just can’t help myself.

Along with Karen Burniston’s Square Spinner Pop Up set I have used one her new releases the Border Blends – Argyle and Jinks the Monkey which is an old die set that is no longer available.

I show the back of the card in this video – sometimes things happen when you forget to put cover back on ink pad.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy Crafting !



Merry Christmas From Buster

Welcome my crafty friends,

Today I have another Spinner Square Pop Up card for you.  This card is so much fun I just can’t help myself.  Funny thing is I bought this Karen Burniston Die Set to make an altogether different card which I have not made yet as I have been having so much fun making these cards.  I believe that this is going to be one of those dies I will get my money’s worth out of it.  I did not do a tutorial as it would basically be same as the chicken card I previously posted.  Buster the dog is another old die of Karen Burniston’s which has been discontinued but I am sure you can find another dog die.  Hope you enjoy this card.

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time – Happy Crafting!

Brownie the Cow Pop Up



Hello My Crafty Friends,

Just a quick post of latest card I created.  I have been having a blast using Karen Burniston’s Spinner Square Pop Up die set.  There are so many possibilities for this set.  Tonight I have created barn with Brownie the Cow inside for our grandson who milks cows nights after school and weekends.  Besides the Spinner die set I have used a couple of old Karen Burniston dies that have been discontinued.

Hope you enjoy this card I have been anxious to do it since I did the chicken card for his sister.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy Crafting!
