Bird Ballad Pop Up Card

Today I was able to place an order from the upcoming Holiday catalogue. You could too if you join my team and add product from the Holiday catalogue to your starter kit!

The Holiday catalogue will be available to customers on 4 September 2019. But while I wait and stalk AusPost over the next few days, I have some more gorgeous projects to share.

This one is really feminine and flowery. The Bird Ballad DSP is super pretty and creates the perfect, easy background for cards.

I then die cut one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies from the bundle is white card and stamped the Hello sentiment. I stamped the bird and flowers onto scrap white card and coloured them using the Stampin’ Blends Combo packs; Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut them before adhering to the card with dimensionals. Pretty simple, hey?!

But wait til you see the inside…

This is the pop up part of the card on the inside. I saw this technique done by Jennifer MacGuire and thought it was pretty cool, however I wasn’t keen on the way she created the mechanism… I got glue everywhere! I think I will try something similar but alter it next time.

Springtime Foils with Pop Up Gold Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card that we made on Saturday at my class. This one uses the absolutely stunning Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper, one of the second release items in the Sale-a-bration brochure. You can earn it for free with any $90+ order!

Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper
* 12 sheets: 3 each of 4 single-sided designs 
* In 3 colors: Gold foil, Rose Gold foil, Silver foil
* 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free & Lignin free

I was inspired by Terri Gaines, a SU demonstrator in the USA who shared a video of this card and I fell in love with it straight away. It really showcases this DSP beautifully and who doesn’t love a gold butterfly, right?!!! What I also love about these papers, apart from the metallic shine, is that it is so thick; you can cut it to size, fold it in half and use it as your card base!

I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets and applied it to the back of the gold foil sheet before die cutting the intricate butterfly. I also cut 2 solid butterflies from the Bold Butterflies framelits dies in Whisper White card. Score each of the butterflies down the centre and fold them in half. Watch Terri’s video to see how to put it all together. It’s much easier than trying to put it down in writing!

When you open the card, the butterfly pops through the slot and is actually adhered to the inside of the card!

Here it is opening:

I have used a sentiment from the Cake Soiree stamp set and inked it with Smoky Slate ink. I can see myself recreating this card using many different items to pop through the slot!

Let the Good Times Roll on Australia Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share this card using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue. You may remember I shared one earlier in January that was a feminine one, but today is my dads 70th birthday and I thought this was an appropriate card for him, as it brought back wonderful memories of the times he would take me on the rides at the theme parks while my mum & sister looked on in terror!!!! Dad & I loved them!!!

The base card measures 8¼” x 5⅞” and is folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Are you ready to see the magic happen as you open up the card to reveal the 3D pop up inside?

Who wouldn’t get a thrill out of opening this card?!!!! Isn’t it just so cool?!!

This is a 14 piece photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the stamped images as well as using the coordinating dies to cut them out so no more fussy cutting! I have used lots of colour as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Remember, here are the tips I found when using this bundle:

  1. use whisper white, not the thick whisper white card, it’s easier to fold the tracks
  2. do not score your white card all the way through. Only score each side about 1/2″, line up the die and then cut, then use a ruler to score across to the edge of the die cut
  3. Score along each edge of the tracks and the bottom edge before trying to fold them
  4. Add an extra layer over the framework of the roller coaster for strength
  5. it will fold flat, you just need patience in the manipulating of the tracks
  6. I made a quick 30 second video to show how it folds flat, view here. (I’m not into making videos, so no instructions with it, lol).
  7. You can also view the YouTube video by Brandi at the Stampin’ Up! home office here to see more about how to create the pop up section!

Birthday, Techniques & Tutorials

Birthday Pop Up Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share my Build a Birthday card with a difference. This is a pop up card, so slightly more advanced technique, but still easy when you follow the steps.

Let’s get started!

Here is the front of the card, and yes, it just looks like a normal C6 card, but wait til you see inside. I started with an A5 sheet of Watermelon Wonder card stock folded in half. I embossed a piece of Whisper White card with the Decorative Dots TIEF and adhered that to the front of the card. Then I added a smaller piece of Designer Series Paper from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack.

Build a Birthday Stampin Up!

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and used the Note Tag Punch. I also used the Chalk Talk framelits to die cut the Watermelon Wonder piece, but cut one end off. It fits perfectly under the Note Tag Punch!!!!

On the inside top of the card, I glued another piece of the Cherry on Top DSP Stack paper before winding some twine around and through the tag and tying in a bow.

Now here is the fun part!

Check out all these candles that pop up when you open the card. How cool is that!

Build a Birthday Stampin Up!

I stamped all the candles and cut them out and punched the top of each one above the flame by placing it in the Modern Label punch!

Here is a side view of the open card.

This was not my original idea although I did need to change the measurements from Foolscap to A4 dimensions. I need to thank Georgia Giguere for this idea and you can view her video here https://youtu.be/iBD0r_V9YmE
