Pop it Ups Wednesday With Shelly – Steampunk Birthday Pull Card

January 11, 2017

Hi all! It’s Shelly Hickox here today to share a grungy masculine card that is perfect for any man in your life. I’ve started with one of my favorite dies from Karen Burniston – the Oval Pull Card – then incorporated more of my favorite dies, stamps, and stencils to create a steampunk birthday card.

When the card is in the closed position, it hints at what is hidden inside, but the real magic happens when the recipient pulls it open! Continue Reading

Remember by Suzanne Cannon

Hello! It’s Suzanne here today to share a simple layered card.  This patterned paper has been beckoning me for weeks.  Once again it called softly as I caught a glimpse of it. Finally, I said, it’s your turn!  It leapt out of the packaging and practically assembled itself.

If I can make a card with an unspoken or simple message then I’m usually pretty happy. The balloon breaking free could represent any number of life changes…. It could be significant for someone leaving someplace or someone, or starting a new phase of life. What about a graduation? You don’t want them to forget you!  What does it represent to you?

Here is how this card made itself!

Pop It Ups Wednesday with Kelly – Happy Birthday

March 23, 2016

Hi It’s Kelly Booth

One of my very favorite things to do with cardstock that has a white core (White on one side and colored on the other) such as the New colored Soft Finish Cardstock, is to emboss it and then lightly sand the surface.  I am just loving all the fun colors of the Soft Finish Cardstock  so thought I would play with this favorite technique of mine.

Here is the front of the card with fun colors and Happy Balloons!

Hot Air Balloon Shaker Card

March 4, 2016


Hello!  Summer Hills-Painter here today with a shaker card project.   In the new CHA collections, Karen Burniston released a hot air balloon die and I just knew this would be perfect for a shaker card. This project would be great for students going off to college, a coworker who is moving to a new company or position, and many other life events.

Here is how to make the card:
