Arriving soon

Hi everyone! You all probably know that I have my own blog but I also do this one for my hubby. And sometimes I forget to post samples on here. This is a card that I made yesterday using a new Hello Kitty die that is shipping out this week and will be in the store soon.This die is called Aloha Hello Kitty. I used tan colored cardstock for kitty because she's wearing a bikini and needed some color on her. The embossed background on the card is also a new Hello Kitty embossing folder set that will be in the store later this week. And of course the scallop border die is one that I like to use a lot for my projects. One can never have too many scallop borders. The word "hello" is a Hello Kitty sizzlit die that was released a couple months ago.

Don't forget that the 30% off sale ends tomorrow at the store closing time. Hope you're having a great Tuesday!!!

Hippo bag

Hi everyone! I had some free time today after finishing up a project this afternoon and played with some of my new dies.

This is a new XL die from Sizzix called bag with scallops #2. It looks small but it's kind of wide on the sides. You can fill the bag with Hershey kisses or m & m's. The hippo is also a new die from the baby release for May. I also picked up the ladybug die and hope to make something with it soon. We have more hippo's coming in probably next week.

Supplies:

Sizzix XL bag with scallops #2, Sizzix hippo, birthday #2 embossing folder, Bazzill cs, Hero Ars gemstone and ribbon.

Have a great weekend!!!

Sizzix 3-D pop-up dies

Hi everyone! I did this make & take at the Sizzix booth while we were at CHA this past January. This is the front of the card. The pop-up die goes inside the card.This is the platform, spinning die. We have these dies in the store now and they are quite easy to make, once you try it. The scallop circle does not come with the pop-up die. This is a separate die that is used to put the Hello Kitty die cut on. You can use other shaped dies in place of this scallop circle die. Hope I'm not confusing you but I wanted to show you this pop-up card and how it works.And guess who's birthday it was today??? Yep, he was born on tax day. I love this new stamp background from Hero Arts. It makes your paper look like a grid.
Supplies:
Pop-up card-platform, spinning by Sizzix, Hello Kitty flowers, Hello Kitty sitting, Hello Kitty scallop border, Hello Kitty word phrase, Scallop circle #2, glitter and ribbon.
Quickutz hedgehog die, Hero Arts stamps, American Crafts ribbon, and MS punch.
Hope you're having a great evening and see you this weekend if you're coming to the make & take!
