You should have arrived here from our amazing friend, Kristina Werner! For the full hop list click HERE to start at The Daily Marker.

If you are new to the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Kathy has all the details on how you can take part HERE.

And now we have an amazing card by Megan! Her card combines multiple stamp sets, lots of dies, awesome coloring and her fabulous talent! Enjoy!

What appears to be just an absolutely adorable birthday card is only a hint of the awesomeness on the inside!

Wow! It’s a three-ring circus with lots of happy critters on a Pivot Pop-Up! Megan extended the beam of light from Beam Me Up to create a spotlight for the trapeze artist, who joins us from Bicycle Built for You!

Check out the supply list below for all the sets that were combined on this incredible card! Megan used the dog bowl from Critters at the Dog Park to make pedestals for the animals to sit on! Then she decorated them with the star from Spooktacular and a party hat from Party Animal!

The ruffle around the bear’s neck is part of the Hats Off to You Santa hat! How clever is that?!! Megan‘s coloring brings these happy performing critters to life!

Thank you so much, Megan! I love this amazing interactive card!

  10. Wow! That card is just amazing! Love that there are so many creative elements … I was wondering what the stand the animals were on was!

  11. Wow! It is amazing how Megan combined all these sets! I believed Lawn Fawn had created a Circus Animal set!!!

  12. Love how she took all the animals and made them a circus! I thought it was a retired set. Very very creative! Two thumbs up on this adorable card!

  13. This card is amazing! Don’t think I could ever have the patience to make a card like this, but Megan did a fantastic job. Her coloring is just perfect.

  14. This Pivot Pop Up card is fantastic! I cant decide whether this die or the Reveal Wheel is my favorite, but you are knocking it out of the park with these new ideas.

  15. Wow I love the Circus themed Pivot card! So many details… I would love to see the video. I have not ordered that die yet, as I just received my Reveal Wheel one, and need to make some cards like that. But I do love the idea of the Pivot card!!

  16. That is an amazing card–so clever how Megan used so many sets in unusual ways to achieve one fabulous circus! I checked out her Instagram account and was totally blown away by the things she creates!

  17. Wow! The card is amazing! You can tell so much work went into this card, it is stunning! Thank you for the inspiration. I really like that several sets were used. I have been trying to use different pieces from different sets together more.

  18. I love the circus feel and how you kept only the characters bright to bring the eye to the subjects. Beautiful happy card.

  19. This is so clever…I can’t even! The swing as a trapeze is my favorite, followed closely by the elephant on the bike. 😂🤣😂 And I would have never thought to use the dog bowls that way. This is why we need ALL of the Lawn Fawn sets. Well done!

  20. A fun and inspiring interactive card for a special little someone. Way to get more creative mileage from a collection of images!

  21. Wow, not only is Megan’s coloring amazing but her ingenuity is phenomenal! i love seeing how Lawn Fawn’s sets collectively work together and because Lawn Fawn doesn’t retire their sets so quickly, you can still capitalize on getting a set you may not have but now see the potential! i also love the snowy backdrop setting the scene inside and out, awesome job!

  22. Megan has such a knack for stretching images! Always so clever! Thanks for the generous prize on the hop! So much Lawn Fawn on my wishlist right now 🙂

    That is the most amazing card ive seen in my 20 years of stamping! Whoever gets it will be so lucky

  25. Fun, colorul cards, but what isn’t fun with Lawn Fawn! I am still getting a lot of mileage out of the interactive oven you released a few years ago!

  26. Oh my world, my jaw just dropped, and I can see from other comments that mine was not the only one! This is such an amazing card, and so fabulously executed that I am nearly lost for words! And that does not happen very often, trust me! 😉 Thank you so much for being part of Kathy’s wonderful hop and challenge!

  59. I LITERALLY gasped when I saw the card opened!! I thought the front was really cute – than bam!! That truly is a work of art. Ah-mazing

  60. I love how she combined so many stamp sets. Great circus themed card. I love the spotlights. It just so adorable.

  67. WOW! Your circus pop up card is just simply AMAZING! It is bright, cheerful, fun and creative! I am in complete awe! Thank you so very much for this inspiration! 💗

  68. This card is so fun that I had to show it to my two little girls and they went crazy!! Of course, now they want me to make one for their next birthday party but um, no way. I wouldn’t even know where to begin!!

  69. What an amazing card! I love how you used the beam me up as a spot light. It brought a huge smile on my face. But I am sad that Lawn Fawn no longer has the circus set. Maybe they can bring it back??!!!!

    1. Hi! Thank you for your sweet comment! I used different stamp sets to make this card. Lawn Fawn hasn’t made a circus themed stamp set that I’m aware of, but wouldn’t that be great! Maybe they will in the future. 🤗 Kelly listed the stamp and die sets that I used in the blog post if you would like to see exactly which ones that I used. Thank you again! All of the sweet comments on my card have been so special to me!

  70. Cool card! When I first saw the front, I thought, “oh, how adorable,” then the next picture knocked me right over! It was a wham/bam! And I love that upside down use of the spotlight. How clever! But, seriously, did she really use THAT many supplies?! Well, it was clearly worth the mess that I am sure having that many stamp sets out created…!

  71. Holy…this is the most amazing pivot card I’ve ever seen. Megan just made me purchase several more sets

  72. This card is more fun than a barrel of monkeys! I have been seeing a lot of pop up box cards like this, which would make wonderful table decorations as well!

  73. Wow!! This card is amazing, the colors are so eye catching. All the details and the pop out inside is just so wonderful

  74. I just love what you created–stunning. I have always been intimidated by coloring but recently purchased some Copics and am starting to enjoy coloring. I need to continue to practice to get better at it but will eventually get there.

  75. Megan, this card is INCREDIBLE! You have certainly taken these fabulous stamps and dies and took it up a few notches with your ingenious ideas! Love that you used the dog bowls for pedestals. Oh my goodness, you have def. thought outside the box and it is a great reminder for all of us.
    An amazing card!

  76. That is an absolutely amazing card – what a labour of love and so imaginative (dog bowls for pedestals!)

  85. This pivot die is ingenious! I’ve used it for several kids bday cards & they get the biggest kick out of it. I’m definitely getting the new Reveal Wheel die & stamps!

  86. I’m sure this work of art was a labor of love. I hope you made more than one. Lawn Fawn is so good at coordinating all their die sets to work with each other. I need to push myself to think outside the stamp set. It’s not just backgrounds that can mix and match. Thank you for the inspiration.

  93. Oh…….This card is absolutely incredible! You have shown such imagination and incredible talent. Thank you!

  94. Eeeek! that is just so much fun. I am blessed to have grands who love to get my first attempts at new techniques, and this is next on my list for the October birthday girl. The downside of creating cards ahead is that I keep finding new things I want to try and I already have cards made! Thank you so much for supporting Kathy this way.

  95. Wow! This is so creative and awesome! I love how she’s combined so many sets to make this perfect big top scene! Genius!
