Popping out with KB Riley

Posted by Bethany Duff on

Welcome to the Karen Burniston (KB Riley) & Sassy and Crafty Blog Hop! Our Design Team members are excited to share their inspiring creations using some of the fabulous products from both these companies.
Beth here with a fun project! For this card I used the KB Riley and Co Bitty Ball Pop-Up to create two fun projects! Look for the second one on Instagram later this weekend. 
When using the Bitty Ball I definitely suggest watching the video by Karen to see exactly how to put it together. She explains it beautifully and it makes your whole project go together SO much better. 
I put my bitty ball together first and I die cut the ball 4 times, twice on a heavier stock white cardstock and then again with a lighter weight patterned galaxy paper. I knew the patterned paper would not hold up to the stress of the ball so I used the white cardstock to bear the brunt of the work. 
I used the Ultra Bond glue from Thermoweb to hold this thing together. A very important note is to use the #12 rubberbands. Unfortunately I did not have any and I got very crafty with a thicker rubber band. I ended up having to trim my rubber band in half to make the mechanism work properly.
After I got my bitty ball put together, I started coloring my aliens from Ew, Humans. 
Ignore the mess but I also decided to create a little moon to give my flying alien a backdrop. I attached my alien with acetate to give the appearance of flying. Because my bitty ball was a little bulky (thanks wrong size rubber bands) I decided to create a paper band to hold my card closed. I finished my card with the sentiment Believe from our set and added a few sequins just to give a little shine. You can see the final project below! I hope you enjoy and make sure to check out below for all the details on how to win!
