Thrill Ride with Paper Craft

I made so many inserts with the Thrill Ride dies for yesterday’s card while I tried to master pop-up. Instead of putting them all in the same kind of card I found another sketch to use for a new card front.  This sketch challenge is from Paper Craft Crew found HERE.

Let the Good Times Roll

This new stamp and die set by Stampin’ Up may not be very versatile but it sure is fun!  The pop-up die is a bit challenging, in the end I ignored the placement guide that is on the die and then everything worked out. After making about nine of the pop-ups I think I’m ready to teach others how to make it in my next card class.  For the card front I used the sketch at Glodal Design Project found HERE

More Than Chocolate

Time to think about Valentine’s Day.  I made these two cards with the help from three challenge this week. The sketch is from Stamp Ink Paper, and the inspiration for the “edible” valentine came from Hand Stamped Sentiments. Over at Try Stampin on Tuesday I found my color and lace idea from their tic tac toe challenge. I selected the diagonal row of pink, heart and lace. 














And on the inside of the card.....
