Welcome to the Neighborhood Front Pop Up Panel Card ft. MFT's Stamps and Dies


Hey Everyone!

Today I'm sharing with you another fun Interactive card ft. stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.  I made this Welcome to the Neighborhood Front Pop Up Panel Card for one of my very best and oldest friend's Susana. We met as children, she was 6 and I was 7. We grew up together and for a very long time we were neighbors, and now here we are 30 years+ becoming neighbors again as her family just moved into the neighborhood.

These cute little houses I used come from MFT's Home Sweet Home die set. 
Normally, Pop-up cards have their pop up elements on the inside of the card. But if you know me I like to be different and experiment with designs.

So instead of a pop up inside the card, I thought it would be fun to do it on the outside panel. This way it the best part of the card could always be seen if displayed!

Here is a super close up of all the tiny little extras and details.

I love playing with the liquid applique, I always find it so magical when it puffs right up.

Added this coordinating sentiment to the inside of the card from the No place like Home stamp set .

So Happy Together Interactive Spinner/Shaker Friendship Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps


Hello Crafty Friends, 

I am beyond excited to share with you my very first project for Honey Bee Stamps, I'm calling this my So Happy Together Interactive Spinner/Shaker Friendship Card.... What a mouthful! The perfect card to send a friend you are really missing 😁

Hard to see but this little beauty is not only a shaker, but it has an arm beneath the hive that spins all around to give it the illusion that the little bees are flying around it.

So Happy Together Interactive Spinner/Shaker Friendship Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps

As you can see in the image below the bees are in a different position now.

So Happy Together Interactive Spinner/Shaker Friendship Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps

The hive turned shaker was created by stacking 7 of these hexagon bunches together and adding an acetate layer before adhering the top die cut. I then filled each hexagon with a few Sunny Day Sequins and added a back layer to hold them all in place. The little bees are glued onto the end of an acetate arm that has a hole in the center which allows for the arm to spin around a disk.

To finish off the inside of the card I thought it would be cute add the missing you sentiment to make it appear like the little be was lonely without her friend from the front of the card.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card


Today was a sad day for me...
I said my goodbye to a long time friend, colleague and mentor. I had worked with Jan for almost 20 years. She was super smart, so funny and sarcastic, beautiful, and one the best Nurses I've ever worked with. She was for a very long time our Charge Nurse and go to person for all our questions and always someone I looked up to and admired.  When I first started at the hospital one day at lunch, I remember a comment Jan made to me. She said that I looked like I was just a kid and that I could be her daughter, (she probably would of had to have me at 16, lol) but from that point on she became my work mom. Today was her celebration of life and though she left us too soon, she had a beautiful one. I will miss her terribly as we all will at work 😪 

So on to today's card...
As sad as the situation is, I always like to look for the beauty in things, and as I made this card I thought of Jan. I think Jan would of loved this card and hopefully her family will too.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

The card was actually quite simple to put together. I began by stamping out the background with versamark ink and then added some Raven embossing powder and heat set it, then die cut my panel.
Next, I cut out the prayers word die 4 times. To the top prayer die I stamped the coordinating stamp on top again using versamark ink and this time used gold embossing powder and heat set it. I then stacked and glued 3 of the word dies together. Finally I cut out the velum layer, stamped and heat set the images and then glued the prayers in place. Right behind where I had glued the prayers stacked dies, I then glued the last die cut behind the vellum. This created a larger surface area to adhere the vellum layer to the front panel and it also lifted the vellum off the card ever so slightly.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

To the inside, I just finished the card with this simple sentiment.


Hope this card Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card has inspired you today.
Goodbye Jan 💔
