Hello Beautiful

 Today's card is a Fall-inspired pop up box card that I created as a pick-me-up after a long week.  Let's just say the last 10 years of digital memories and family cookbook, my store's digital art files and more... gone!  Very heartbreaking.  Luckily, with the help of my creative projects team, I got most, if not all, of my art files back.  Huge thanks to Deanne and Helen ♥  

So I had a play with my new Box Card Bouquet dies and some Rainbow Glimmer paper and made this collapsible pop up card and it cheered me up a bit!

The rainbow glimmer paper I used for the front stitched label, the "hello beautiful", the side layers and the stitched piece in back of the flowers are from Stampin' Up! and it's pretty thick, but so so pretty when the light hits it!  

Nothing is inked with this card - it's all die cutting with MFT Die-namics!  (A complete list of supplies used are at the end of this post.) 

Thank you for looking today.  If you have used a great data recovery place and would recommend them, I'd love to hear about it!  :)  Happy INKing!!

OH NOOOOOOO! Kris, if I can send you any of the digi sets I own, please let me know! I do have a bunch of your genius! ;-) I swear by Carbonite, have used them for gosh maybe almost 10 years now, right after they first came out, and survived one desktop crash because of them. Well, if anything can cheer one up after that, your box card definitely can! Just screams "Cheer Up!". This has been a sad and jolting week for many in my life as well. Spousal deaths and cancer diagnoses, COVID breakthroughs -- my friends are not having much fun. Then the tropical storms, fires around the country. Then the Afghanistan crap. And me with a horridly irritated sciatica nerve I just wanna wrench outa my bod! hahaha Things just gotta get better. Anyway, let me know if I can help you, I have 36 of your sets. xoxo
Oh Kris, what a week... you have my sympathies. Loving this vibrant and cheerful garden box, and I am glad to hear that it's construction cheered you up
Stay safe

Multi-Tiered Pop Up Penguins

 Welcome friends!  I had a great time last night on a Zoom call with my SU! upline and 8 others in her downline group - so fun to "meet" them and put faces to names and craft together - for 3 hours!  :)  We all worked on our own projects and they were so diverse, love it!   For my zoom project, I created a multi-tiered pop up box card --- no surprise there, right guys?!  BUT, this one was on a much larger scale and needs a 6 1/8" square envelope, which I had to make myself, but with the help of my nifty envelope punch board , it was pretty easy... PRETTY being the operative word as I used some the same Whimsy & Wonder dsp from SU! as I used on my card!   I will include the measurements for making this card below my photos, so keep scrolling :)  The Whimsy & Wonder dsp has holographic striped paper that I used on the sides of my box.   These cute penguins and matching punch are bundled in the new Holiday Catalog, July - Dec. 2021, and so is the Whimsy & Wond

Multi-Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Origami 4-Drawer Easel Card

 Happy Sunday crafty friends!  I was asked for instructions after posting pictures of this box card on a FB group, so here it is!   While I am not the original creator of the 4-drawer easel card that were all the rage 10 years ago, I thought of a way to create the drawers from designer paper ,  when others were creating it using cardstock.  Some had dies that cut the drawers and others were clever enough to come up with the correct measurements to cut and score and tape, but I couldn't wait to find what I was looking for so I just made a simple origami fold box for the drawers and wha-la!  It worked ... and is prettier than plain cardstock IMO.  :)   So I'm here to share it with y'all again, this time using Stampin' Up!'s Ornate Garden Suite (stamps, dies and paper!)   Supplies Needed: - (4) 6-inch pieces of designer series paper - (2) 4 ¾” coordinating designer paper (or can use same   as 6” pcs.) - (3) 8 ½ x 11” sheets of cardstock – can be same or different color

Pop Up Flip Card - Interactive Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Today's card was inspired by several I've seen recently on Pinterest and Youtube and it's one I hadn't tried yet, so I created one with February's Paper Pumpkin kit called, "Bouquet of Hope." These are super simple to make but yet has that "wow" factor for your recipient.  This is one I will definitely come back to again and again. Here's a view from the side.  It does have a box-y mechanism and a li'l flap that helps the oval POP when you open it.  The mechanism is a piece cut at 3" x 4" and scored along the 4" side at 1", 2", and 3".  The li'l tab on top is cut at 2 1/4" x 3/4" and scored at 1 1/4".  If you prefer to watch a video, Dawn has an excellent one here .    ♥ ♥ ♥ Stamps:  SU! - February 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit: Bouquet of Hope; Butterfly Gala Dies & Punches:  SU! - Butterfly Duo punch; Stitched Shapes Dies Paper:  SU! - Flower & Field (SAB Jan-Feb 2021); Poppy Parade, &am
