I knew I had to add this to my ever growing collection of kitchen dies as soon as I saw it.
Base card is whisper white with a layer of Daffodil Delight CS embossed with Simple Stripes EF. Add a doily- cut in half to stretch out to either side of the Lots of Labels framelet cut white CS.
The apron was cut using a red check paper from a picnic packet from years ago. then the strings from real red CS and the apron front as well.
A piece of Daffodil 1/4 inch double stitched ribbon to finish. If I had a Daffodil button I may have used that instead. I love the clean look of this.

take and 8x 4 1/4 inch cardstock in Smoky Slate.
Score it at 1 1/2, 3, 5, 6 1/2" along the 8 inch side.
Punch out the crenelles ( I had an old hand held square punch perfect for this but you may need to hand cut if you don't.
Stamp the sentiment in the center with versamark and emboss with black embossing powder.
I used the Pattern party Decorative masks with the brick pattern with the Silver embossing paste to make the outside brick look. Not too much detail makes it look better so don't be too neat and avoid the sentiment.
I made the castle door with the Everyday Jars framelits upside down on the Wood Textured DSP to make the door. I cut several strips of black CS and put some glue dots on them and sprinkled black embossing powder on them and heated it to make it look like nails ( I was planning on using brads but SU does not carry brads anymore that would fit this so had to improvise ) and it worked like "magic".
I cut a 1"x strip of Garden Green using Finishing Touches Edgelits die (retired) to created the zigzag grass. put one on the back under the wizard and the opposite piece on the front of the card to make the "bridge"
Stamp, color and diecut the wizard, knight and the dragon. Mount them with dimensionals.
punch out a ball from silver glimmer paper to create a magic ball.

I love popup cards. For some young men in my life who are graduating I wanted to make them a special graduation card and what better for that than the Truly Tailored Suite?
I did not have enough matching small buttons so I made them using an old punch that has 2 holes in it and then punched it out with a 5/16 inch circle punch. Put it on the shirt with the mini stampin dimensionals- the perfect size!

I can't believe that this set came out and did not make it into the new catalog. I know - I know- how pricey it was but I had to have it before it disappeared. I love the sweetness of the image and the ease of the diecuts.
I took a 12x12 sheet of whisper white cs and cut it down to 5 1/2 inches and scored it at 4 and 8 inches to make a triple fold. Start from the front of the card, stamp the image, diecut. The front sentiment from Petal Palette. I like to use the Stamparatus for the next part. Put the stamp where you want the next image and then let the lid stick to the stamp, then open the card and stamp. then same thing with the next layer. The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday. I stuck the card on a quarter sheet of tempting turquoise to make it out to A2 size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 but also because the blender pen went through to the back and I wanted a nice and neat back of the card.

I just love this kit- I have been playing with the kit and the flower pieces that are supposed to be used on the envelope are so pretty I had to use it on the card. Then the pieces that are left over from the letter I had to use in another card. So much fun. The card above had a layer of pink pirouette CS added.
I would love a whole sheet of these stickers to buy separate.

The base is Pool Party - I dauber'ed some whisper white ink to make some clouds in the sky although hard to see. Stam the sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet in Soft Suede.
I diecut the fence- I collect all these dies so not sure which company this is from- I let the end not cut so I could extend the fence the whole 11". the tree is from the retired Beautiful Branches but I guess you
The little flowers, leaves and branches are from a Tim Holtz die, retired SU Botanical blooms framelit and little flower stamps I got from Michaels for a $1 over the years.
scallop punch- see image end of this post. I colored in the center with bronze Stampin Blends to contrast. The leaves below are from retired Botanical Blooms in different green CS. I used a 1/4 inch strips of clear plastic- cut from packages with glue dots on both ends to keep the blowers from drooping. They are clear so pretty invisible.
