After seeing something similar on a YouTube video I couldn't wait to try making these wiper pop-up cards.
I'm really happy with how they came out and how many different ways they can be used. As with everything crafty your imagination is your only limit.
Oh What Fun, might be the name of the paper packet used but it's also very apt for these interactive sliding pop-up cards.
A frame can really make your card stand out and OH BOY! have I got a treat for you!
I've created 3 very different cards using the same frame, shared the 'how to's' and given you the link to make some yourself with Cricut Design Space.
This is my first ever entry for a sketch challenge. I hope to make them more regular, time permitting of course. Challenges are a great way to get some creativity flowing when you're stuck for ideas or want to try something new and see how it comes out.
This Sketch challenge is from CAS(E) this Sketch #290
The Boutique collection has some gorgeous stamps, papers and embellishments.
This simple card is made using the cardboard cut-out, "sweet", from the Boutique Compliments, the Bunches of Love stamp set and an acetate sheet. Often referred to as clear PVC front binding covers, available from places like Officeworks.
The acetate helps support the "sweet" cut-out and gives the card some strength.
Augusts stamp of the month is "For the Love of Crafting".
Its available only during August for $27 (+GST). When you spend $75 you can purchase this stamp for $7.50
Its such a gorgeous stamp and can be used on a scrapbook layout or card. I've made this card for a team swap using the Documented paper, bashful card stock and Cricut cut for the notepad background. If you have a Cricut you can open the cut file for the background and create your own here: Cricut Cut File
I'm a huge tea lover so when Close To My Heart released this collection I was really excited to have a play.
This layout was made using the new Beautiful Friendship collection. It features tea cups, a tea pot and gorgeous flowers and butterflies from the following Cricut Bundles (Art Philosophy, Flower Market, Artiste).
Luckily for me my gorgeous niece is also a lover of tea and has her own tea set. The pot is filled with water so she can play and make teas for everyone, sometimes she makes potions too. hehe!
Today's Quick Tip Tuesday shows you how to make 3D flowers to embellish your cards.
It comes as no surprise to anyone that I am super excited for my first wedding anniversary. Traditionally the gift for a first wedding anniversary is paper, and I LOVE PAPER !!!
Now it's very unlikely that my husband will see this post or card I've made for him before tomorrow so I think I'm safe sharing it with you here today, as long as you can keep the secret with me for a day ;-)
It's been made using the Close To My Heart, Artbooking, Cricut Cartridge (Floating Hearts Overlay). By playing around in the Cricut Design Space I was able to join the floating hearts to a card front, cut it out of Bashful cardstock and then cut a second layer of floating hearts, in the Bashful Glitter paper. The stamp is from the Cricut Flower Market Collection. The circles have been cut with generic stitched circle thin cuts.
I've added a circle to the inside of the card so I know where I can write (and will probably write on the back of this one too).
The products used in making this card are listed below. If you have the cricut cartridges I've saved the design for you to use by clicking here
