Darkroom Door / Karen Burniston Blog Hop ~

Hi guys!!
I'm super excited to be hopping with Darkroom Door and Karen Burniston.
 Showing you how these beautiful Pop~up dies work so well with the gorgeous red rubber stamps by Darkroom Door will be a blast!!!

I have created three card examples using these fun products together.
  The possibilities are endless and so fun!!

Here is the front of card#1 But everyone knows with a Pop-up card
 it is all about what is on the inside~

Products used:
Karen Burniston: 1056~ Squares-Crosshatch
Other: Ranger:Archival Ink
Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk inks (shading)
Paper: Authentique
Scrapbook Adhesives ( foam squares)
X-Press It (high tack double sided tape) ~ a must!
wet glue

Card#2~
The front cover on this one, just kept it real simple (I love simple)~

I love shells, love the beach so I had to create a Summer beach card using the
 House & Fence Pop-up die and Darkroom Door's Seashell stamps (my favorite).

Products used:
Karen Burniston: 1015~ House & Fence Pop-up
Other: Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk inks (shading) and Adventure Waits.
Ranger: Archival inks
Scrapbook Adhesive (foam squares)
X-Press It (high tack double sided tape)

Card#3
I did one last card to show how valuable the floating floor is, that comes with the
 House & Fence Pop-up die.  If you have the floating floor the sky is the limit.  You can use stamps, die cuts and ephemera to create the focal for the card.
