Hi Everyone my post today is a 6" X 6" pop up card using Susan Tierney-Cockburn's new release CountryScapes Backyard 5 - Wash Day die set.  I knew when I saw this die set for the first time that I wanted to do something a little different with it.  Growing up we had a clothesline like this.  We not only hung laundry on it but on occasion we hung blankets to make a tent.  We begged to spend the night in it but of course we never quite stayed the whole night.  Fond memories for sure.  This was one that was a little bit difficult to photograph since it is long so you get some blurring and I am sorry about that.   Here is how I constructed the card. Using a 12" X 12" sheet of white cardstock cut it in half.  Take (1)  6" X 12" piece cover with clear double sided adhesive and adhere grass pattern paper.  Do the same for the other 6" X 12" piece of cardstock.  Now to form the pop stand with floating floor card base use Karen Burniston's video

Sweet 16

Hi Everyone - phew we missed the big snowstorm here in Maine and my heart goes out to all of you that are in the middle of it.  I designed this card for my Susan Tierney-Cockburn Design Team post as well as for our granddaughter who is turning "Sweet 16" this week.   The card is an A2 (4-1/4 X 5-1/2).  The roses were made using Susan's Garden Notes Rose 2 die which is from her first release at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Susan has so many great dies and I love them all but the Rose 2 is one of my very favorites.   Here is how I created the card.   Cut the rose 6 times (I like to have extra petals to fill in) from a light pink cardstock using #998 Garden Notes Rose 2 die.  Add shading to the petals with PanPastels Kit 1 dark pink.  To shape the roses Susan has a great tutorial here Using a light to medium green cardstock cut several leafy branches using ECD die #1033 .  Using the #811 leaf pad and the leaf tool from #808 Susan's garden 4 pc Tool Kit make a vein line i
