Let’s Get A Cup of Coffee with Mug & Heart Pop `n Cuts

It’s Friday! Who’s ready for the weekend? I know I am! Today I am sharing the last of the samples I made for CHA-W 2013. All the samples feature Karen Burniston’s new Journey Pop `n Cuts collection she designed for Sizzix.

Let’s Get A Cup of Coffee with Mug & Heart Pop `n Cuts by @gscrapbooks

Today’s card features the Mug and Heart Pop `n Cuts Insert (item #658374), the coordinating Flower & Heart Movers & Shapers dies (item #658368), and the Bigz Edge & Scroll die (item #658365).

On the front of the card, I left the negative space from the PNC, that is the heart you see. Instead of covering it up, I left it open to give the card a different look. I also used the Edge from the Edge & Scroll die to make a border. I just trimmed down my paper after I die cut it to make it fit.

On the inside, you can see the Mug & Heart PNC which I decorated with the Flower & Heart Mover & Shapers dies. I combined the PNC with the original Pop `n Cuts A2 Base Tray. The cute coffee themed stamps that are on the front and inside of the card are the coffee4two stamp set from The Stamps of Life.

Keep Calm and Relax On with Chair Pop `n Cuts

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing another sample card I made for CHA-W 2013 using Karen Burniston’s Journey Collection.

Keep Calm and Relax On with Chair Pop `n Cuts by @gscrapbooks

This card features the Chair Pop `n Cuts Insert (item #658370) and the coordinating Foyer Textured Impressions Set (item #658381).

I used the original base die to create this card. I kept the front simple and just used some patterned paper and cardstock and added a sentiment using the Heyday Thoughts stamp set.

On the inside I used the Chair Pop `n Cuts (it’s super cool right?) and the Foyer TI Set. I colored the Foyer accents using chalks. Such a cool set, it’s made to fit perfectly with the Chair. Love it! The sentiment on the inside is from the Heyday Thoughts stamp set… Ferris Bueller anyone? :-)

I’ll have one more card to share from my original Journey samples on Friday. Stay tuned!

Hope you’re having a great week!

a new venture: About That Story

I’m starting a new venture! I’m an avid reader and would be lost without my Kindle, so I’ve decided to start a book review blog to share my love of reading, books, and what I think of them. 

aboutthatstory.blogspot.com

I like to read a variety of books: Paranormal - Romance, Vampire, Fantasy. Young Adult Dystopia. Science Fiction Fantasy. New Adult. Contemporary Romance. Adult Fiction/Romance. I plan on reading whatever interests me and sharing my thoughts.

About That Story will be a completely separate blog than this one. I will, of course, still blog here because I’d be just as lost without paper crafting as I would my Kindle.

But wait! There’s more! I started an About That Story Facebook Page too. It would be awesome if you would “LIKE” me!

Thanks For Being So Thoughtful with Wavy Frame Pop `n Cuts

Happy Monday! I will be sharing a few more samples this week from CHA-W showcasing Karen Burniston’s Journey Pop `n Cuts Collection. Without further ado, todays card…

Thanks for Being So Thoughtful by @gscrapbooks

Today’s card features features the Wavy Frame Pop `n Cuts Insert (item #658371), the coordinating Wavy Labels Framelits (item #658363), the Bigz Edge & Scroll die (item #658365), and the Birds & Banners Textures Impressions Embossing Folders (item #658379).

Thanks for Being So Thoughtful by @gscrapbooks

I used the Banner TI folder on the front of my card and then chalked each flag. I created this card using the original PNC base die.

Thanks for Being So Thoughtful by @gscrapbooks

On the inside of the card I used the Wavy Label Framelits to create a die cut piece to cover the Wavy Frame PNC as well as the oval. I decorated the top and bottom of the inside using the Scroll from the Edge & Scroll Bigz die.
