Ruby Rock-It is offering our beautiful Essence Empire Bebe collection to one lucky winner!

And the Elizabeth Craft Designs prize is a package full of fun Peel-Offs from their new collection, Stand Up Helpers Set 2 and a pack of Watercolor paper.

Hello and Welcome to the Blog Hop. I'm so excited to share the cards I created with the wonderful Ruby Rock-It papers and embellishments and the Elizabeth Craft Designs Products! 

For my first card, I decided to use the Lorna Label Pop Up Die to make a fun Happy Birthday Card. The Ruby Rock-It glittered embellishment diecuts needed lots of space to shine and the Loran Label Pop Up is the perfect base to do that. 

Here is the front of the card.

Here is the inside where the party begins!

To make this card, cut a standard A2 size, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, cardbase from red cardstock. Fold in half. Diecut the Lorna Label from the Meadow pattern paper from the Ruby Rock-It Handi Scandi Paper line. The trees are so cute!! Pop out the pop ups, trim a to fit inside the card base and adhere, making sure not to get adhesive on the actual pop up elements. Die cut a large Lorna Decorator Label in red and a small one in yellow cardstock. Adhere the Happy Birthday Peel-Off to the small yellow label. Adhere both to the pop up label with the yellow one on pop dots.  Add various diecuts to decorate. Diecut the Birthday Hat in yellow, blue and red from the new Props 2 die .Adhere to the bears head. Cut a piece of yellow cardstock to 5 1/4 by 2. Tie blue and white twine around it with a bow in the front. Adhere to bottom of inside card on pop dots. Add mushrooms. Decorate the card front with a 5 1/4 x 2 piece of Meadow pattern paper with a piece of yellow, red and blue twine tied in a bow on the front. Add on pop dots. Add mushrooms and bird to finish off.

Here is a close up of the pop-ups

My Second card is also a Birthday Card using the Ruby Rock-It Floriade Pattern Paper from the Handi Scandi Line. I love the blue floral print so much I had to make a card out of it. I used the  Accordion Oval Card Die to frame and highlight the embellishments.

To make this card emboss the front of a standard A2 size card made from white cardstock with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love this folder and use it a lot! Diecut one Accordion Oval Card panel from the pattern paper and trimmed out the center and cut off the tabs from the oval and the panel.  Tie a length of red and white twine around the right side of the oval frame with a bow in the front and then adhere the frame on pop dots to the card front. Adhere the pattern oval directly to the center of the card and add a smaller oval in red on pop dots. Add the adorable glittered Owl and Flowers to the center for the focal point. To complete the card  diecut Happy Birthday in white cardstock and adhered it above the oval following the curve.
