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.

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Weather here in Maine has turned cold and we have had a little snow – has gone now but I know that we could get the big one anytime so all gardening will be in paper for the next several months.

Susan Tierney-Cockburn as many of you know has teamed up with Tonic Studios and has come out with her first release of flower dies under Tonic logo and they are beautiful as always. Tonic Studios has a lot of great supplies.

Today my card is for a card I designed for a dear sweet friend that has just become a Mom for the first time – It’s A Girl!

Step 1  Cut 2 Beauty Berry Bush from green cardstock.  Shade with ink shape leaves.  Using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Plum Pudding add berries to branches set aside to dry.  When dry add berries to back side set aside to dry.

Step 2  Cut 3 layers graduated in size (Tonic’s Memory Book Maker Layered Cascade Die Set used here) colors of your choice.

Step 3  Using Tonic 6″ X 6″ White Card Base or form your own base.  Using Nuvo Tape Runner add decorative layers to front of card base.  I embossed the card front.

Step 4  From green cardstock die cut 2 Japanese Painted Ferns (I did not use as painted ferns I just used as regular ferns) use green ink to shade.  Bend fronds up to shape.  Use Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to adhere at bottom of card front.

Step 5  Adhere Beauty Berry Bush to card front ( when berries are dry).

Step 6  Cut, color and shape 1 Pom Pom Dahlia.  Using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive build Dahlia on lower center card front.

Step 7  Cut sentiment twice.  I used Tonic’s Tiny Treasures (not sure that it is still available) but another sentiment would work. Adhere one on top of other to give dimension.   Adhere to center of card front.
