National Card Making Day Blog Hop!

I am so excited! Today at Scrapbook Star, we are celebrating our first annual Blog Hop to celebrate National Card making day!  Hop along with us for some awesome inspiration, new techniques, prizes and most of all fun! Along the way the participants will be giving you a word – when you get to the last stop at the Scrapbook Star message board and have figured out the sentence send an email to and you will be entered in a draw for a prize.

Today I have a few things for you. First is a card that I have been wanting to make for a long time. Thanks to this hop, I got it done! Yeah Me!!! It is called a Criss Cross Card! You can guess why by the design on the front! LOL!
Do you see the Criss Cross on the front? I know a little hard to see with the belly band on it sorry! Basically this is an envelope with an insert in it. I love how it turned out!

Here is the insert. I coloured this little elephant while at a Copics course. I wish I own it! Don't you think he is just the cutest little thing! I used some Kaiser papers for this one, some mists and of course Copics. Along with some Prima flowers!

Here is the second card I made for you. This is another one that I have been meaning to try to make as well for some time. Finally got it done! Here is secret pop-up card.

Here it is as you would see it just out of the envelope. Kinda boring I think!

But once you pull the tag, this is what you get! A pop-up image and a secret message. Isn't she cute?

Here is a side view!

I have been playing around with my stamps lately, trying to create a 3-D image. Here is a close up of sweet Tilda, showing you the 3-d"ish" image. I still need to practice some more, but I think I am getting there!

And lastly I just wanted to share a little box that I altered to put all my cards into as a gift. It was made out of an old Purex box!

This is the before!

And here is the after!

I am so happy that you decided to join me! I guess you are looking for your secret word now! Well it is............CARD!

I also have a little something for one lucky blog hop participant. If you leave me comment, your name will be entered into a draw for a mini K&Co album with some embellies and papers to match!

Thanks for stopping by and playing along.

Don't forget to write down your secret word and hop on over to all the blogs, and get the rest of the words, to able to win a prize at Scrapbook Star!!!!
