Haunted House dies from Diamond Press

Monday, August 17, 2020

 Hello friends! Just popping in to share some fun designs that I created with the new Diamond Press Haunted House dies. These dies are simply amazing! It's a shame they sold out so quickly on HSN but here's some looks for those who were able to snag them!


For my first card, I decided to use the stamps and dies to create a fun 3D background collage with my sentiment as the focal point.

Next for this house, I inked up a starry sky background and added the tree and fence die cut from the Halloween Pop Up set.

For the next card, I used some patterned paper as a fun background and created this card around the colors of the papers.

For my final card, I just love purple and lime green together so I thought it would make a fun card!

I can't wait to see what others are creating with this fun set! I'll definitely be having a friend over to craft some of these before Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by!

Anna Griffin Tea Cup Pop up cards

Thursday, August 6, 2020

Hello friends! I know it's been a while. I hope you're all doing well through this difficult time. I've tried to keep myself busy with as many craft projects as possible which is why I haven't been sharing on my blog as much.

Today I wanted to share some cards I made using the Tea Cup Card kit from Anna Griffin. This kit is so beautiful!

For this card, I thought it would be a great technique to emboss the card base with an embossing folder. I love the way the design looks!

For the inside, I wanted to add a butterfly so I cut this cute die twice and layered it with a foam dot. So pretty! If you want to learn to make this card, Anna did a Charm school video on her blog featuring similar pieces from the kit here. She walks you through each step to create your own pop-up card. She also shows other advance cards using the kit that are just stunning.

For this card I used a die behind the sentiment and flowers to make the front of the card stand out.

and filled my tea cup inside with a variety of blooms.

Another fab front with a die from Anna's library of designs. There are so many now you can really mix and match!

and I added another sweet butterfly to the flowers

I kept it fairly simple for this card.

But filled the tea-cup to the brim with flowers.

I had some flocked cardstock tucked away and I thought it would be perfect for the tea cup dies.

I love how the cup turned out with the embossing and flock. So delicate and pretty.

My last card features a little inking of the teacup on the inside.

It looks so delicate and fun right?

Thanks for visiting today. I promise to have more action here going forward. Aren't we all just trying to figure out our new lifestyles? 

I'll have some fun news coming soon too!
