Peek - a - Boo

Today I would like to share a couple of cards I have made for Christmas using the fantastic new Peekboo Frames die from Stampin' Up!

This die is a Bigz L and cuts five different aperture frames with one pass through your Big Shot  (or other die cutter) machine.

There are three square apertures of different sizes and in three different designs, one circle aperture and one rectangle with "double doors" 

The card above shows the largest square frame closed, and to the right is the same frame opened to show the stamped image and message inside.

The frames were cut from cherry cobbler card and card front and frame decorated with Festival of Prints designer series paper stack. On the outside I used  the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching die and on the inside of the frame I stamped images from the Happy Hour Stamp set. I also used a sentiment from the same set on the inside of the card itself.

For the card on the left I used the same frame again in cherry cobbler card and again used the Festival of Prints Designer series paper stack.

I also used the Mixed Medley (hostess exclusive) stamp set  and the 1.25 inch scallop circle &  3/4inch circle punch for the layered sentiment


The sample on the right shows the same card with the aperture opened to reveal the stamped image from the Greeting Card Kids stamp set  which was coloured with  marker pens.

 The Peekaboo frames die is perfect for making Advent calendars and I hope to have a sample to share soon, but it is also great for adding extra interest to cards and scrap pages, boxes and gift tags...and the peekaboo panel can hide or reveal an image or a secret message...the choices are endless.

If you would like to get your hands on any of the products featured here, or you would like to know more about Stampin' Up promotional offers and opportunities please do get in touch

Until next time, take care.
