Guest Designer for the Karen Burniston March 2018 Designer Challenge - Coffee and Cake!


I am thrilled to be part of Karen Burniston's March 2018 Designer Challenge as a guest designer today and her theme this month is Coffee and Cake. Who doesn't love coffee and cake, right? And you will also love the new Coffee Cup Pop-up Die Set and the Cake Pop-Up Die Set and all the wonderful cards Karen and her design team made with those two sets in this challenge. They will be featured today on the Karen Burniston Facebook page and tomorrow on Karen's blog here. I am sharing a card I made with the Coffee Cup Pop-Up Die Set for this challenge and on Thursday I am showing a wedding card with the Cake Pop-up die Set. 

To see all the cards I designed with all the new dies in this latest release and all their interactive pop up movement, be sure to watch my newest YouTube video here.



The front of my card features a sweet mini coffee cup from the Coffee Charms die set as well as some coffee beans, a little heart and a perfect sentiment stamp from Crackerbox Palace. But as is always the case when designing with Karen Burniston pop-up dies, the real fun happens when the card is opened by the lucky recipient:


The coffee cup in the middle stands up and there is a Starbucks gift card tucked in for the birthday girl or boy to enjoy! I think the new Happy Birthday die in this Karen Burniston release is my favorite birthday die yet, and I have many of them. The font is so pretty and cheerful!

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday and the Coffee/Tea challenge at TCP Tuesday.

I had fun designing this coffee cup pop-up card and being part of this month's Designer Challenge with Karen Burniston and her design team. I share many more interactive cards in this video and will be showing all of the cards I designed throughout this month, so be sure to watch the video and stop by again here on my blog. Thanks for helping me #share the joy of creativity!
