Card Maker/Sizzix Blog Hop



I  am a big fan of using die cuts on cards, so I was happy to learn that CardMaker magazine and Sizzix were partnering for this blog hop.  Sizzix very generously provided all the blog team members with products for the hop.  My cards today were all made using a fun Triplits set, Hello, Sunshine -- as well as a couple of other Sizzix die sets.  That happy little sun is just too fun!

The first card I have for you today is a center-step card on which I used some cloud patterned paper as well as both the sun and the chevron cloud from the set along with the shadows for each one.  In addition, I also have some strips made with another Sizzix Thinlits die set -- Borders.


I didn't include the sun on my second card, but I put that cute little happy face into the cloud for this get-well card.  The words are part of another Sizzix set -- the Circle Flip-Its Card #4.


My last card was the most fun to make.  I think flip cards are so creative, and I watched a video on Stephanie Barnard's website on how to add a "hidden panel" to one.  Again I used the Circle Flip-Its Card #4 for the base of my card, and the "Happy Birthday" greeting is from the Regal Stand-Up Card die set.



And, when you open up the hidden panel, this is what you get!


As a “thank you” for taking the time to follow our little card-making thread, Sizzix will be giving ONE LUCKY WINNER a Sizzix Big Shot Machine, their choice of 3 Stephanie Barnard dies from her latest cardmaking Sizzix collection as well as a YEAR subscription to CardMaker magazine! All of the details for the giveaway and how you can enter for a chance to win can be found on Sizzix’s site.

Tomorrow Jennifer Priest will be presenting some creations using more Sizzix dies.  Be sure to check out her blog.  Here's the link.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I was so happy to share my creations with you.

Love seeing something besides the usual "square" card.
the cards look difficult to the recipient - but we know that there are tricks to making it so easy.
thanks for sharing some great cards.

Your trio of cards are delightful!! All three are so fun but my favorite it the third card! LOVELOVELOVE the secret panel!! Great color and paper choices on all three but that flower paper is lovely! This is such a fun hop!! It is so cool that we only have to do one a day and then have to hang in suspense waiting to see what the next designer has created!! A little suspense is a good thing in my opinion! Looking forward to seeing Jennifer's card tomorrow! TFS!

Couldn't find your post yesterday but am leaving a comment anyway. I love your cards but my favorite is the flip-it card, mainly because it is so bright and cheerful. Interactive cards are so much fun to make and receive.
