Pop 'n Cuts

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for taking the time to stop in today. I just looked at my  followers count and I am so close to 100. AWESOME!!!

Today I finished up on my stamp purge. I have gone thru a lot of stamps and have decided which ones I can get rid of. Hopefully these stamps will find a new home with someone who will use them. Most of the stamps I am selling off haven't been used for a while. So it's time to move them out.

On my last post I mentioned that I took a class from Karen Burniston, the licensed die designer from Sizzix. I want to share with you the 4 cards we made in the class.(I just finished the 4th card that we did in the class. After 4 hours, I was a little tired. I just had to color the embossed areas.) Let me show you that card first.

Here is the card closed.

And the card opened

(I just finished coloring the rug and the table lamp and the picture behind the chair.)
The rug and the items behind the chair are in embossing folders. So I just had to color those embossed images 

This next card is just so festive

A cute birthday card, or maybe another event

I really love the papers shed chose to use on this card
This card is so unique on the inside

Here it is opened. Can you see the cool feature??? NO......

OK here is a closer view.
We used mirror paper and cut out the HELLO (and we cut it out backwards) so when you look at the mirror paper you see it correctly and can read it.  See the Hello is right under the stars.

Last but mot least......


This class was so much fun and Karen really makes using the dies she's designed, so easy.
Well I ordered so many dies to start out with, I had to take out a loan. LOL

Well I know looking at the cards is not quite the same as being at the class but  I hope you enjoyed peeking in at the cards that I learned to make. 

Hope you all have a great week and I will be back soon.

These are amazing Barb! I can't pick a favorite, the mirrored hello is so cool, but that comfy armchair is super too. What a great class that must have been.

OH OH OH! I can just visualize you making these cards, Ms Lover of Paper Engineering. WHAT FANTASTIC cards!

So did you buy all the goodies needed to remake these fabulous cards at home? I love them! So proud of you for getting all your "stamp items" ready for sale. I need to part with some of mine, too, but want to use them, first LOL

Thanks for sharing your class! hugs, de
