Twist Circle Snowman Card - version 2!

Interesting story about this card.

My original Twist Circle Snowman Card was sent to Els for her shows. It did a fair bit of traveling and I believe it now resides in London at the offices of The Craft Channel, where you may see it on future shows featuring the Twist Circle Pop-up die set.

I was invited to demo at the recent CKC in Houston, and since the original Twist Circle Snowman Card had been so popular, but was, at the time, somewhere in The Netherlands, I decided to make a second version of the card to show in the booth.

Except the card never made it to the booth.

Or it did, and got immediately stolen. Not sure.

Because that card vanished! When I realized during my Friday demo that it was missing I just assumed I had left it at home and would bring it for the Saturday demo. I searched for it that night but it didn't turn up. Yesterday I did some cleaning of my office (vastly overdue) and still held out hope that the card would show up . . . but no! 

A mystery!

At least I took photos of it before it vanished. The Fancy Pants patterned papers are years old, from my stash, so you'd have to substitute something from this decade, but any festive winter papers would work well as a backdrop for a fun twist circle snowman.

TwistCircleSnowmanMittens

The card measures 5" x 6" when folded and features a foldover flap with hidden magnets as a closure. I combined the large label dies from the Labels & Circles set with one of the large circles from the Twist Circle set to make the front decoration. It also features the Holiday Charms and some fussy cut mittens from the leftover patterned paper.

TwistCircleSnowmanMittensClosed

What's cool about the Twist Circle die set is the action on the mechanism. In the closed position the snowman sits face up and sideways flat in the card. As the card opens, he starts to raise and twist into the center of the card. The greeting inside the card is made with the Labels & Circles die set and the Holiday Clear Stamps.

TwistCircleSnowmanMittensPartial

Once the card is open the snowman floats in the card. To make the snowman I used the large stitched and medium circles from the Twist Circle set, and then the circle charm from the Sports Charms for his head. There are pop dots between the layers for dimension. The hat is from the Steampunk Charms set and the arms and carrot nose are trimmed branches from the spooky tree in the Halloween Scene set. The snowflake is from the Holiday Charms. His eyes, buttons and smile are black/silver glitter dots.

Halloween Charms Pop-up Card

A great option for the new Anita Frames Pop-up die is to use the included decorator label dies to cut windows from the pop-up labels and hang charms in the openings. Here's a Halloween card using this technique. (See this post for a Christmas version)

HalloweenCharmCardOpen

For the front of the card I used the new Candy Corn Layering Stencil to make a border and then added a stamped greeting from the Halloween Clear Stamps, cut out with the dies included in the Anita Frames set, and then added the jack-o-lantern charm from the Halloween Charms.

HalloweenCharmCardClosed

1200_Halloween_Charms_Pack

Speaking of the Halloween Charms, you can see the dies that come included in the set at the bottom of the packaging. The three ghosts that combine to make the 3D ghost are all on the same die, making it quick, easy, and paper-saving to construct the ghost. For the jack-o-lantern charm, there is a solid pumpkin die (cut from black) and a face overlay die (cut from orange), plus a die to cut the stem and vine (green). For solid pumpkins, perfect for harvest themes, simply eliminate the face overlay and cut the pumpkin charm from orange cardstock.

For today's card I used jump rings to hang the charms in the openings of the pop-up. I further embellished with spiders and webs from the Halloween Scene die set and the "31" stamp from the Halloween Clear Stamps, which can be cut out perfectly by the oval die that comes included in the Anita Frames set.

Pop it Ups Anita Frames & Holiday Charms

Today I'm sharing a fun way to use the new Anita Frames Pop-up die set with any of the Charms sets in the Pop it Ups line.

The front of my card is very simple - just layered squares of cardstock and paper wrapped in a ribbon to resemble a present. I hung two of the Holiday Charms from the knot in the ribbon. The patterned papers I used on my card are retired designs from Basic Grey that I found in my stash. But of course any patterned paper would work for this type of card.

AnitaCharmsFront

When the card opens the Anita Frames pop-up is revealed and the other two Holiday Charms hang in the openings. I also used one of the banner dies that comes in the Anita Frames set for added decoration. The greeting is from the new Holiday Clear Stamps, cut out with the decorator labels that come in the Anita Frames set.

AnitaCharmsOpen

Here's a close-up so you can see more detail on the charms. The Candy Cane charm comes as a solid and an overlay, making it very simple to create the stripes. The tree charm features decorative dots around the perimeter and is easily decorated with Glitter Dot ornaments.

AnitaCharmsDetail

The Anita Frames pop-up die will cut solid labels that can be decorated for any theme. When you want to create openings for hanging charms, simply cut the pop-up in the usual manner and then use the largest decorator die over each pop-up label to remove the centers. This will work for any charms, any theme.

August 2016 Pop it Ups Designer Challenge #2: Girly or Ghouly

We are loving this new format for Pop it Ups Designer Challenges. Challenges are now posted twice a month - on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. The first theme of the month will be set by me and the second theme of the month will be set by a team member. For each challenge the team will post one card on their personal blogs on Monday of challenge week. This way the same amount of great Pop it Ups inspiration is posted each month, but spaced out on two dates so it's not so overwhelming. 

The theme for this team challenge was set by Shelly Hickox and is: "Girly or Ghouly" - think pretty, shabby, feminine or French, OR think creepy, crawly, spooky or eerie.

In addition to a new card and video from me, plus cards by the 9 members of the DC team, Shelly's good friend and designer extraordinaire, Cyndi Watkins, has joined us as a guest and just wait until you see what she made - amazing!

For my card I wanted to combine both sides of the challenge to make a card that transforms from a feminine Parisian scene into a ghoulish Halloween version. The new Twist Circle die set worked perfectly for this effect. Here is the video tutorial for my card, which I'm calling a Hidden Halloween Card:

 

Obviously I made this card specifically for Shelly's challenge theme, of Girly/Ghouly, but the idea of transforming a scene using the Twist Circle is universal. Because the Twist Circle changes position upon opening the card, it is the perfect choice for a card with a transparency layer that allows you to see the pop-up's location in the closed position and then watch it move as the card is opened.

For the front of my card I kept it simple, with a glittered Eiffel Tower and some pre-made flowers from my stash. I added Glitter Lines around the perimeter of the pink paper for some extra sparkle. The elastic closure keeps the card closed tightly so there's no hint of the spooky scene that will be revealed inside.

Boonjour_ClosedMove the elastic to open the card. The Twist Circle will start to raise and twist the moon.

Boonjour_PartialOpen

When the card is opened the Paris scene has been completely transformed into the "Ghouly" version, complete with a pop-up moon, purple bats, spiders and a spooky graveyard.

Boonjour_Open

I was pretty proud of my idea for the greeting. I did selective inking on the "Bonjour" stamp by first inking just the "Bo", then just an "o" and then the "njour". A small spider stamp from the Halloween Clear Stamps added the perfect dot above the j. I also used the Halloween Clear Stamps for the "Trick or Treat" greeting that's attached to the pop-up. Midnight the Bat is the newest Character die and works well as the host of this Parisian graveyard scene.

The Designer Challenge team, plus our esteemed guest, Cyndi, have made some delightfully demure/dreadful creations for the Girly or Ghouly challenge. Make sure you click on their names to travel to their blog posts, where you will find more photos, instructions and supply lists. 

Shelly Hickox chose the Girly side of the challenge for this amazing soft and pretty Twist Circle project. I did not realize at first that the pretty flowers were made by hand using the decorator dies in the Flower Pot Pop Stand. Drop the mic! You should definitely check out Shelly's blog post for more information on how she made the flowers and this Shellypiece. 


SH_Girly_shelly hickox circle spiral card

Shelly Hickox set the theme this challenge so she decided to do both sides of the challenge. She used the Twist Circle again to make this devilish delight featuring a very distinctive vintage witch stamped image. I like her use of the bat die for modesty! The front of this card, with the Iron Fence and Bats stencil, is spooktacular!

SH_Ghouly_Wicked

Cyndi Watkins is a good friend of Shelly's and they get together for crafting sessions in which Shelly is always singing the praises of Cyndi's work. Cyndi had taken a break from blogging but decided to return so I asked if she'd like to join Shelly's challenge as a guest designer. WOW! She absolutely ROCKED this challenge! Cyndi made a Staggered Fancy Accordion and decorated one side girly and the other side ghouly! Check out all the fabulous details. She used the Iron Fence and Halloween Scene as well. I'm blown away! 

CW_Girly_Karen Burniston Staggered Accordian

Summer Hills-Painter is the mother of 3 boys so she jumped at the chance to craft for the Girly side of the challenge. Summer used the Flower Pot Pop Stand and added a bamboo trellis die to the pot to make an amazing structure of pretty pink flowers. She also used the Occasions clear stamps and Labels & Circles dies. Stunning!

SHP_Girly_FlowerTrellis

Caz Counsell also turned to the Flower Pot Pop Stand for her creation, but went for the Ghouly side of the challenge. I love how Caz made Midnight the Bat hang upside-down on the front of her card, and her delightfully spooky pot featuring Hoppy the Frog and a hanging spider! 

CC_Ghouly_MidnightHoppy

Karen Aicken made this elegant masterpiece of a tea-themed Cascading Tag Card for the Girly side of the challenge. I love all the details and the vintage styling of this card. The card itself is made with the Adirondack Chair and Tags Pivot Card and then she embellished with the Cup Pop Stand and Coffee & Tea clear stamps. Karen is a master crafter and this is simply stunning!

KA_Girly_TeaCTC

Sandy Diller knocked my socks off with her Steampunkin' Hanging Charm Pull Tab project. I just love the use of the Clock on the HCPT and then hanging the new Halloween Charm in the opening. The gears, the Props 9 Witch hat, the googly-eyed Midnight pull - I'm in love! She even combined two stamp sets for a custom greeting.

SD_Ghouly_HCPTClock

Raquel Mason also went with the Ghouly side of the challenge for this fun Halloween Card featuring a lot of the new items. I particularly like her purple candy, made with the Candy Corn Layering Stencil, and check out how she added monster scars to the Characters using laces from the football in the new Sports Charms set! I mean brilliant! Love her arching Iron Fence with 31 placard. Fab-boo-lous!

RM_Ghouly_KBDC Aug Girly or Ghouly 2

Frances Byrne went with a pretty Paris-inspired theme for her Girly card. It features the new Anita Frames Pop-up, which is completely generic and perfect for any theme. Frances decorated it beautifully with the Paris Edges, Eiffel Tower and Just a Note clear stamps. As always, Frances found the perfect patterned paper for her theme. Exquisite! C'est magnifique!

FB_Girly_ParisAnitaFrame2wm

Kelly Booth had a brilliant idea! She used the Anita Frames in the center of a wide card, which created two new folds to be able to animate the Iron Fence on both halves of the card! This is amazing! She created such an interactive scene inside the card between the fences arching, the pop-up popping, and the 3D ghost charm expanding! Wow! Wow! Wow!

KB_Ghouly_DoubleFenceAnita

Fran Sabad created a sensational peek-a-boo Circle Accordion card by cutting the centers from her first two circles to allow a view of all the decorations in the closed position. In the first vignette she created a spooky fence scene and then the 3D ghost charm hangs in page 2. She finishes with an eerie graveyard on page 3. This is amazing!

FS_Ghouly_PIU-Circle-Accordion

Well I hope you feel inspired to try a Girly or Ghouly (or both!) project of your own. Join us on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 for MORE ghoulish inspiration because our theme for the first September challenge, set by me, is Halloween! 

Happy Crafting!

Pop it Ups #1206 Anita Frames Pop-up VIDEO

Happy Saturday, fellow crafters!

Today I have the final assembly video for the new interactive dies in the Summer release. This is the Anita Frames Pop-up die set, named in honor of Anita Izendoorn, who was a big fan of a similar die called the Floating Frames from my early Sizzix days and has been requesting for years that I bring it back.

This is going to be a great all-purpose generic pop-up die for any theme. Watch this video to learn how to assemble it:

 

The card I make in the video is a simple card design using just a few supplies.

The card front is very simple, using a harlequin patterned paper from BoBunny with glitter dots to highlight all the diamonds. The banners are stamped (Occasions Clear Stamps) onto white cardstock and then cut out with the matching dies and strung onto a piece of twine. I attached them to the front of the card with pop-dots. 

AnitaFramesFront

I layered the two smaller decorator labels together and then die cut a crown with double-sided adhesive on the cardstock so it could be glittered. I embellished the crown with glitter dots and lines.

AnitaFramesCloseup

When the card is opened the Anita Frames pop up is revealed. The oval provides a spot for me to sign the card. 

AnitaFramesOpen

In the video I show the die cutting of the "Happy Birthday to you" stamped label using the medium label die included in the set. This will leave a slight shadow around the stamped black border. The banners are attached to the card with miniature paper clips.

Pop it Ups Halloween Collection - pop-up Iron Fence card

Happy Halloween! (Yeah, yeah, I know it's mid-August, but the days move quickly, ya'll! It'll be here before you know it. Don't wait too long on the candy, either, or you'll be giving out boxes of raisins and believe me, word spreads quickly among the trick-or-treaters!)

Today I'm sharing a card I made to show off several of the new dies (and stamp set) from the Pop it Ups Halloween Collection.

image from karenburniston.typepad.com

This card is a standard A2 size (4.25" x 5.5" when folded) and features a card front made by combining the jack-o-lantern charm (Halloween Charms) with the witch costume from Props 9. A circle from the Labels & Circles die creates the body (and the stitched label backdrop) and the circle is stamped with a greeting from the Halloween Clear Stamps. The spider and web are from the Halloween Scene set and the small bat die from the Midnight the Bat set will perfectly cut out the small stamped bat.

IronFenceGhostFront

When the card opens the Iron Fence pop-up arches up. I also included more elements from the Halloween Scene die set and stamped greetings.

IronFenceGhostOpen

One thing that's fun to do with the Iron Fence is to take advantage of the pop-up to animate other things. In this case I wove the Props 9 broom through the spokes of the fence and glued the pumpkin charm to the end. As the fence arches, the broom pops up with it and the jack-o-lantern is suspended in the air. The arching fence also allows the 3D Ghost charm to expand behind the fence. So much interactive fun in this card!

IronFenceGhostPopUp

The Iron Fence comes with an anchor sleeve for under the fence. If you cut your sleeve from the same pattern as the background it's easy to disguise. In fact, if you have a black slider arm but a lighter background (like this card) you can add two sleeves to the slider arm instead of one. Two sleeves creates the perfect length to cover the slider arm below the fence. You also always have the option to eliminate the sleeve(s) entirely and use a larger piece of paper to anchor the slider arm. I did that for this card, which you can see in the close-up below.

IronFenceGhostAnchor

Twist Circle Snowman Card

Last Tuesday was our first Designer Challenge of August and I shared a video tutorial for assembling the BRAND NEW #1207 Twist Circle Die Set. Today I'm sharing one of the sample cards I showed in the video.

TwistSnowmanFront

This card measures 5" x 7" when folded. I started with a 7" tall by 12" long strip of light blue cardstock and scored it at 4.75" from the left side, then 5" from the first fold. The remaining 2.25" on the right side became the fold-over flap and I scored the paper a few times close together to make the flap have dimension. I hid strong magnets between the layers as I covered each flap with patterned paper.

TwistSnowmanOpen
Because a Big Shot die cutting machine is only wide enough for a 6" card, I cut my inner paper card to 6" tall before die cutting the Twist Circle. After folding the mechanism and attaching it inside the card I added the remaining patterned paper along the bottom to complete the paper. Then I covered the seam in the cut papers with coordinating washi tape.

The Twist Circle die set had two of the circle sizes I needed for the Snowman - the large stitched circle and the medium solid one. For the snowman's head I turned to the decorator circles in the Ring Accordion, which had a nice 1.2" diameter circle that would fit the top hat nicely. The top hat is from the Steampunk Charms die set - I simply cut off the hang hole at the top. The carrot nose is from Lucky the Rabbit, trimmed down slightly. The eyes and mouth are black rhinestones and the arms are branches from the All Seasons Tree. I used pop dots between the layers of the snowman.

The remaining decorations are snowflakes from the Holiday Charms set, circles from the Labels & Circles set, including the medium stitched one used to frame the stamped greeting. 

TwistSnowmanPartial


I spent some time trying to find the originator of the stacked snowman idea that ended up all over Pinterest. I believe it may have originated in a paper crafting magazine, but I was unable to find the original or the designer. I am not a fan of generic "inspired by Pinterest" credit, but I'm afraid it's all I have in this case. Thank you, whoever first thought of this idea for a stacked snowman.

Here is the video tutorial for the Twist Circle Die Set:

 

The new release had an unfortunate shipping delay but is expected to arrive early next week and start shipping immediately to independent craft stores worldwide. You can also find Pop it Ups products on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website:


August 2016 Pop it Ups Designer Challenge #1: Flower or Flour

Welcome to our second month with a new format for Pop it Ups Designer Challenges. Challenges are now posted twice a month - on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. The first theme of the month will be set by me and the second theme of the month will be set by a team member. For each challenge the team will post one card on their personal blogs on Monday of challenge week. This way the same amount of great Pop it Ups inspiration is posted each month, but spaced out on two dates so it's not so overwhelming. 

Here is the challenge I issued to the team:  "Flower or Flour" - Make a card with flowers OR make a card with a baking/cooking theme - you decide!

For my card I'm sharing the project I made for the packaging of #1207 Twist Circle Pop-up plus a general assembly video for this new die. The front of my card is a very simple lead in using patterned paper, the scalloped edge from the Pull Card Edges, and a ribbon bow. As the card is opened the circle starts to twist up into the center of the card.

TwistCircleJollyClosed

The "Hi" circle comes with the set and works so well with the other circles to create a fun center decoration. I added flowers from the Flower Pot Pop Stand die set and a greeting from the Occasions Clear Stamps. Jolly the Mouse hangs out inside the card and I created a rickrack border using the Pull Card Edges.

TwistCircleHiJolly

Ready to learn how to assemble this die? Check out this video tutorial for the Twist Circle.

 

The video card is such a quick and simple design. I used mostly just the pieces from the Twist Circle die set to achieve this look, adding greetings from the Just a Note clear stamps and one additional circle die from the Labels & Circles set (to frame the "just a note to say" stamp).

Sandy Diller also used the Twist Circle for this month's challenge and created an amazing cupcake-a-ganza! I am in love with all the details in this amazing card for the "flour" side of the challenge. I especially love the cupcake that fell - what a clever touch!

SD_CupcakeTC

Kelly Booth is the queen of color and this card is no exception. I love her combination of pinks and reds for a sweet and pretty Flower Pot Pop Stand card. Kelly added the Paris Edges as doilies inside the card and I love her yellow butterfly.

KB_flowerpotbirthday

Fran Sabad made a vertical card using the Flower Pot Pop Stand. What a great idea! To create visual balance Fran added a wide accent strip to one side of the card. This card is so classy and light. I love Fran's use of the Flower Stage it Stencil on the sides of the pot. Gorgeous!

FS_AnniversaryFlowerPot

Summer Hills-Painter's Flower Pot Pop Stand uses such a beautiful color scheme. She added the Occasions Clear Stamps "Happy Birthday" greeting, which can be cut out perfectly using a die from the Anita Frames die set. Inside she made her pot match the gorgeous patterned paper.

SHP_FlowerPot

Raquel Mason used the Flower Pot Pop Stand die set but repurposed it as an oven for Buster the Dog's favorite cake .... uh oh . . . it's made with Whiskers the Cat! Ha ha ha. This card cracks me up! (No cats were harmed in the making of this card) Love Raquel's use of the Props 8 baking items plus the Props 6 bandana.

RM_OvenFlowerPot

Caz Counsell needed a special card for a departing co-worker and created a beautiful bouquet. This card features the Flower Pot Pop Stand being built closer to the back of the card and collapsing inward - another great way to use this die. Caz also put Poppy the Owl in the pot. Adorable!

CC_FlowerPoppy

Karen Aicken did a marvelous job creating a fun scene for the "flour" side of the challenge. Karen used Baker the Beaver, Props 8 and the Cake on a Rectangle Pull Card repurposed as an Easel Card. I just love the colors and all the fun details in this. 

KA_FlourEasel

Frances Byrne made a pretty in pink Flower Pot Pop Stand card using a custom plaid paper that she created using the new Stripes/Plaid stencil. I love the pop of greenery in her sweet bouquet. Using the plaid as big chunky corners is a fabulous look!

FB_PinkFlowerPot1wm

Shelly Hickox got very creative with repurposing the Flower Pot Pop Stand into a tombstone! Then she added pieces from the Halloween Scene die set, including a row of tombstones, trees, bats and a hanging spider. Amazingly this all folds down flat in the card and you can see it in action by watching a video posted on her blog post. Spooktacular! 

SH_shelly hickox pop it ups tombstone card

Well I think we can all agree that this team is amazingly talented! Join us in two weeks for the second Designer Challenge of August. Shelly Hickox set the theme and it's a good one - "Girly or Ghouly" - you'll see feminine pretty projects AND creepy crawly projects - pick your poison! Heh heh heh.

Happy Crafting!
