Pop it Wednesday with Caz – Snowman Soup

November 16, 2016

Hi Crafters,

Caz back again and I am continuing my Wednesday With Pop it Ups theme of Sweet Treats with this cute Snowman Soup gift idea.

Most people love Hot Chocolate and what a fun way to give this little gift. I have made Snowman Soups for friends for many years and it is now something of a tradition. So now, moving on to the project.

Judi Loves Berries: A Strawberry Tutorial

April 3, 2016

By Judi Kauffman

Hello, all! It’s Judi Kauffman, back as today’s Guest Designer. I love strawberries, so imagine my glee when I saw the Joset Designs Strawberries die set. It’s irresistible, just like the berries that will soon arrive at the farmers’ markets and make their way to our kitchens. With ice cream, starring in shortcake, chocolate-dipped, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or straight out of the box – this is a fruit that defines summer and happiness!

It’s Kelly Booth here with a sparkly fun coffee card using new dies and a stencil from Karen Burniston!  I’m a big fan of coffee and am loving all the possibilities of the new Cup Pop Stand and the Stage it Stencils. I just can’t put them down….

Here is how the card looks when it’s closed and ready to be mailed:

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Sandy – Tea Time

February 17, 2016

Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a gift I made for a friend who likes tea.  I constructed this box, with a drawer, using chipboard but you could do the same thing with any box, simply by covering it with patterned paper. The top folds flat for mailing and then pops up for use in the kitchen.  I combined the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die with the Cup Pop Stand to create a cute and useful gift.


Here’s how I did it.  Let’s get started!

Silver Spoons

Silver Spoons
By Judi Kauffman

SilverSpoonsCOne of my favorite yard sale finds is a tarnished silver spoon, once loved but now neglected and ready to be rescued. I rarely pay more than a dollar or two because these days nobody likes to polish silver, but I find it relaxing and the end result is well worth the work.

When I spied Karen Burniston’s Cup Pop Stand die set in the new release I was drawn first and foremost to the spoon (though the cup and saucer, steam, embossing pattern and coffee bean were incredibly appealing, too!). I’ve had a chance to play with all of the dies in the set, but it is still the spoon that has captivated me most.

I made three cards with silver spoons. The first, shown above, pays homage to those tarnished spoons I rescue. The different patterns on the handles were created with embossing folders and brought to life with a mix of black and silver alcohol inks. The other two, shown below, incorporate Karen’s new Coffee Stencil and Coffee Bean Embossing Folder, as well as die cut beans. The card bases for the coffee bean cards were cut from rescued manila folders, giving them the nice trio of scored lines down the left edge!

How about tucking a coffee shop gift card or an invitation to stop over for a cup of joe inside one of these cards? I’m going to frame the one with the tarnished spoons. I think it would be fun to display in the kitchen.
