Hey Buddy card using the NEW House Pivot Die

Check it out! Elizabeth Craft Designs and Karen Burniston are pre-releasing one of Karen’s dies from the summer collection. Check out the super cute House Pivot Die Pop It Ups! The new die will be shipping mid-April. I can’t even tell you how much I adore that fence.

Front

Instead of using all the traditional pieces that come with the House Pivot Die (because there are a ton!) I just used the roof piece and made a door for my dog house using the stitched oval from the Accordion Oval Card die set.

The fun “hey buddy” sentiment on the front is from the Simply Said stamp set from Paper Smooches.

 

Inside

The cute doggies and and fire hydrant are from the Critters at the Dog Park Lawn Fawn stamp set. I can always find the perfect set to use from them.

Happy Trails | card

Happy Trails card by @gscrapbooks

I decided to make a card with the Pop It Ups Accordion Circle die set. When I see it I automatically think mini-album since you can extend the pieces to however many pieces you want but I LOVE how it looks as a card. I will definitely being doing it again. I think it’s a fun interactive twist. :-)

I decided to add a backing card to my card, something I’ve never done with this style of die but I really like the look of it. Adds a quick and easy extra touch.

I used the matching Pop It Ups Square with Circle Frame Edges to decorate the inside of the card.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Irish You a Magical Day!

Irish You a Magical Day! card by @gscrapbooks

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from me to you! I decided to get my green on (my favorite color by the way) and join in the Irish fun. I made this card using the Lucy Label Pop It Ups and two fun stamp sets from Paper Smooches.

I was dying to make a green beer using the Paper Smooches A Magic Spring set. I grew up in a place where they had green beer all the time to help celebrate St. Patrick’s day and as a kid I always found it fascinating.

For the inside, I combined the A Magic Spring set with one of my newer stamps sets from Paper Smooches, it’s called Spectrum. The Spectrum set contains the fun rainbow.
