You Make My Heart Happy

Good morning friends!

I  made a second card for Karen Burniston's August 2014 Designer Challenge, which was to use one of the new Character dies. I chose Poppy the Owl (named after the entire Pop it Ups Design Team, since most of us love owls). I paired Poppy with the Heart Pivot for this one.

I perched Poppy on a trimmed All Seasons Tree, turned on it's side to use as a branch. Before adhering it down though, I stamped it with a custom background stamp. After it was attached I stamped my favourite dot stamp in pink and brown.

I love showing different ways to use the Heart Pivot, other than just for Anniversaries and Valentine's Day. This one says "U" and "make my heart HAPPY".

The words were done by hand lettering, and the tiny heart cuts with Poppy.

The cloud dies come with the All Season's Tree, and I cut them from white textured card stock and layered them with foam tape.

The PROPS die set has such fun additions for the Characters, such as these eyeglasses.

This was one of those cards that practically made itself - into my stash it goes!
