Birthday Basics Pop-Up Card

Hi, Stampers!!!

 

I wanted to share with you two pop-up cards that I have made using the same technique.  Any time I have received a pop-up card in the mail, especially as a child, I was always excited … so I was glad when I learned to to make my own.  I actually CASEd the balloon card (that means I copied it) from Dawn Olchefske. She is one  of my favorite resources for different techniques used in making greeting cards.  (All supplies have been purchased from Stampin' Up! and are available in my store.)

 

SUPPLIES:

Stamp Set:    Chalk Talk

Paper:    Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper

Ink:    Raspberry Ripple

Accessories:   Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Chalk Talk Framelits, Small Oval Punch, Owl Builder Punch, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals

 

This card (left) was made using the Topsy Turvy stamp set (retired).  The inside featuring the pop-up is pictured below.  The top box didn't pop up here but … it was supposed to.  =)  You can't see it very well, but there is a small bow on top of the top box.  You can change the ribbon if you like to a wider ribbon.  I kept it small to keep the card from being too bulky.

Making the inside of this card can be somewhat of a challenge once you learn, it is really quite simple.  I have included Dawn's video tutorial on the steps to do this (tips to make it easier are also included on the video).

I hope you enjoy making this card as much as I did.

TECHNIQUE TUESDAY: Using Peel-Off Stickers

Hey, Everybody!!

 

I hope you all had a GREAT weekend.  I did though … it's been quite rainy in SUNNY Savannah!!    And what can you do on a rainy day … STAMP!!!

 

Today and every Tuesday, I will be featuring a new technique that we can use in stamping.  Some awesome resources for that are paper-crafting magazines.  While I enjoy all types of paper projects, I'm especially partial to cardmaking.  So much so that I subscribe to CardMaker Magazine.  The current issue features an article on Using Peel-Off Stickers on our cards.  I thought this would be really neat with the Soda Box Tops, available in Stampin' Up!'s Spring Catalog.  In fact, this picture features them (I think).

 

I hope you enjoy the article.  Let me know what you think!!
