This new die for the Big Shot is phenomenal!!! I’m loving it! You can create pop-up card (or 3D cards however you want to call it!) so easily! There’s a Card Base Pop’n Cuts die (item #130099) and an insert die that goes in the middle of the first die, called Dress Form Pop ‘n Cuts (item #130100). I’m pretty sure that other inserts dies will be available shortly to make different pop-up cards! (Patience! it’s coming in the new catalogue!!!) Check this one out p.32 of the Occasions mini-catalogue.
So here’s the card I made. I used the Dress up Framelits Dies to cut the dress in the beautiful Print Poetry Designer Series paper stack (you can still get this for only $8.50 for 48 sheets of designer series paper, 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ until the end of May only! p.16 in the Occasions mini-catalogue). I also used the Cute Clips (“Hung up” p.28 in the mini catalogue) for the hanger and a rose from the Flower trim (both items available in the mini-catalogue. Hurry up it’s only available until May 31!)
And here’s for the inside:

Lately my parents celebrated their 40th Anniversary! This called for a very special card! This is the card I made for them. As they both love birds, I thought that it would be a nice touch to incorporate birds inside my design! I used the Bird Builder punch for the birds, the Heart collection Framelits and 2 embossing folders, Elegant Lines (which is on sale right now, on the retiring list for $7.46) and Framed Tulips. I used Crumb Cake ink to sponge over the embossed parts as well as to outline the birds. A little rose from the Flower trim and the Crochet Trim complete the card.
Stamp set: Jolies pensées
CS and paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Soft Suede
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Tools: Bird Builder punch, Big Shot, Elegant lines folder, Framed Tulips folder, Heart Collection Framelits, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die; sponge daubers
Accessories: Crochet trim, Flower trim

Here’s a perfect Mother’s Day Card for your children to make! Do you see what was used to make the tree? If you guessed by tracing the child’s hand, you’re right!!! Children can used their own hand to trace the tree! How awesome is that!
I then embossed it with the Woodgrain folder for added texture. I used the Boho Blossom punch to cut flowers and you can use the “Little Leaves” Sizzlits die to add some leaves to your tree. You can add some “flower centers” with some crumpled tissue paper. I cut a small heart with the smallest Heart Framelits and add it to the trunk. I used a full 8-1/2″ x 11″ inches, fold in half to make the card.
This one is my daughter’s creation (under my supervision) as she was trying out my craft for my lastest Daycare Providers Workshop.
CS: Pretty much any colors you want!
Tools: Bigh Shot, Hearts Collection Framelits, Little Leaves Sizzlits die, Woodgrain embossing folder, Boho Blossom punch
Stamp: Voeux mignons
Ink: Wild Wasabi

I made this card for my son’s friend who turned 11 years old, and he loved it! The background paper is from World Spectacular DSP and I thought it looked just perfect! (It’s on sale right now, 25% off!!!) I colored the jet plane with the Watercolor Wonder crayons and sponged some Baja Breeze in the sky with a sponge daubber.
