BoBunny Layout

Today I would like to share with you a layout I made using only BoBunny paper and embellishments.

I used distressed stains with gems to make fireworks. The clouds are made with the Sizzix cloud die, and then I distressed the edges. This gave the clouds a soft look.
I made the balloon from the Cricut Everyday Pop Up Card Cart. It was cut at 21/2 in. And pop dot to make it look like it is floating. And I did the same with some of the clouds that are in the background.
I used the flourishes to make it look like it is tethering the balloon to the ground.

If you like to see the full layout and live in central IL, come to the Paper Forest in Washington IL. I have entered this layout in their BoBunny Challenge. And if you like give it a vote!
For those of you that live out of the area you can go to my instagram link to see a picture.

Thank you for reading and have a crafty day.     Kristi

Dad's Birthday Card Part Two

 First I would like to say that my dad is 83 not 84 like I put in his card.

I used MME Lost and Found 2 for the inside of this card. And Karen Burniston Pop-in-Cut Die. The clouds are made with sizzix cloud die, and the hot air balloon (dad thought it was a Christmas ornament) was made with Everyday Pop-Up cards (cricut cart). The mustache tape is from Teresa Collins He Said She Said line. And the cupcake and 84 stickers are from Authentique.
I tried to make a spinner card to make the hot air balloon look like it was floating away. You can find the directions to make this HERE.
My balloon did not float vary well, I think I made it backwards, but I did get it to float. Karen makes everything look so easy. I'll have to give it another try. At a later date!
My motto is if you don't succeed try try again.

Thanks for reading and have a crafty day!

Birthday Card for Dad

Today's card is full of all the new trends. It has Washi Tape, Trendy Twine, Chalkboard Art, Banners, Chevrons and of course Sizzix Pop-in-Cut. This card was for my dad's 83rd birthday, so I pulled out all the stops.

  I started the base of the card with black card stock and the rest of the paper is from MME "Lost in Found 2". I love this paper collection, I have had it for some time but could not bring myself to use it. It has a nice vintage look to it, just fitting for my dad :)  

I used the Sizzix chevron die to cut a mask. then used Broken China and Picket fence Distress Paint, to make a chevron pattern.
I used the On the Edge die for the front of the card.
Next I used the Sizzix banner die and broken china paint.
I used picket fence for the stamp and some clear embossing powder. Then I fussy cut and pop dot it to the front of the card.
I finished the banner with more MME paper and clear stickers. Then added some Wahsi Tape mustaches and tied a banner with some Trendy Twin to the bike.
 This is all I have time for right now. I will be back later to show the pop-up on the inside.

Thanks for reading and have a crafty day!
