Pop-up Card

I am back with another entry for the SSS Wednesday Challenge : Use More Than One Die or Punch.

Last night I celebrated the 40th birthday of a friend with some girls (boy, I am too old to stay up that long!) and I wanted to make her a special birthday card, because she is one of those who really appreciate a handmade card and know how to value it.

It was so much fun to create this 3D card and I fear I won't be able stop myself from making more of those in the near future. There are so many ideas in my head, it's like creating little stories on paper.

Here comes my very first box card:





The stamps are from MFT, I colored the images with Copics. Paper, fence, grass, birch tree are MFT, too, the box dies are Lawn Fawn.

Thanks for stopping by!

Aloha {Paper-Piecing Mini Tutorial}

Hi everybody! I played around with my stamps and made a card for another MFT Sketch Challenge.


Someone recently asked me how to do paper-piecing, so I took step-by-step pictures for a mini tutorial. Here is the finished card:


And here is the tutorial:


1. I stamped the penguin image onto white cardstock and onto patterned paper
2. Now I colored the image with Copics and fussy-cut the shorts from the patterned paper. For more depth, I added shadows to the shorts
3. Then I adhered the shorts to the penguin and
4. adhered the image to my card with foam tape.


I'll also enter this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Use more than one die or punch, because I used at least three: the square, for adding the clouds with my ink blending tool and the hill the penguin is standing on.

Happy weekend everyone!
