Floral Upsy Daisy

I was asked to make a card and was not sure what to use.  Would I choose the New Julie Hickey Designs from Crafts U Love?  Or would I choose the Karen Burniston die set? Then it dawned on me that I didn't have to choose which to use and I would simply use both!  The dies work effortlessly with the stamps to create and card that not only has the beauty of the stamps, but the sure genius of Karen Burniston's paper engineering. :)  

I love nothing more than to colour,  and I coloured these gorgeous designs using the
Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a waterbrush.  I used the FABULOUSLY FLORAL stamp set
on Pre Order at Crafts U Love.   I also used the wording from the Essential Sentiments Happy Birthday set.  I decided I wanted my words separately so I snipped them apart with scissors a bit scary but I can choose to stamp them together in one line now or in two.

The image was stamped on the Karen Burniston Crosshatch Rectangles.   
Such a fabulous go to die set.  

For the inside I used the flower from the Happy Birthday Essential Set and masked it with a post it note to use other flowers together to form little bunches.
Other flowers used were from the Heartfelt Wishes   & Essential Sentiments Thank you set. 

Of course the inside has all the WOW that  Karen Burniston die set can inject into a card and I used the Upsy Daisy die set.   IN STOCK AT CRAFTS U LOVE.

There are many ways to use and decorate the Upsy Daisy.
  Check out Karen Burniston's blog   for more ideas where her amazing Design Team and herself work their magic.

I hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Until next time!

Special discount

Alongside my blog post today  There is a special discount at Crafts U Love on the KB Riley range.

Paper Pros challenge - August - Anything goes

Its the Paper Pros challenge today and my card today did double bubble and was my card for a work colleague Charlotte who's birthday was yesterday.  Charlotte loves all things girly, unicorn, Disney and Princesses so I thought I would go with a card fit for a princess by using the Circle Charm Pop up die set.  

I used some beautiful Bo Bunny papers from the Early Bird Collection.

I kept the inside really simple and just let the pretty Princess take centre stage.
I used a piece of acetate to sandwich between the centre piece to hold the heart.
There are various ways you can suspend things inside and indeed various ways to use this set  so check out all the ideas over on Karen Burniston's Blog and Facebook page.

Pretty Princess. added lots of glitter glue to her.

You can purchase all the dies I have used from 
Crafts U Love where they are IN STOCK along with lots of others


Karen wants to add 2 more people to her Design Team.
I had pondered re-applying but I don't really think I am worthy a place
due to my recent lack of blogging so I am leaving it to you to apply and
take part in this fabulous Design Team.  Being part of the KB team really was the cherry on top of my crafting highs and I will never forget it.
