PIU Cup Pop Stand 02

I thought I’d make a card for Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Can you see who’s hiding in my coffee cup?  Take a close look –

I used Stampin Up’s Botanical Builder Framelits for the flowers, the bird punch for the leaves and the English Garden Designer Series paper.  The cup is from Karen Burniston’s Cup Pop Stand, stenciled with her Medallion stencil and some stencil paste. When you open it up –

Lucky the Rabbit pops outs!  🙂  The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Helping Me Grow.  And hidden behind Lucky –

Is the Sleigh Gift Card Holder Pop Up by Karen Burniston.  It’s holding a wonder Starbucks card!

To make Lucky’s arm hang over the cup, I simply snipped where it was attached.  Instead of using a large pearl on the inside, I punched a small circle in white and use Crystal Effects over top of it.  This will keep the bulk down.  Enjoy your coffee!  Hugs, Fran

Cup Pop Stand

Here’s a card I did for the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. Today  I’ll be using the Cup Pop Stand to create a card.

PIU Cup Pop Stand 01

I started with the Swirly Flourish Stencil and Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words Hello. I die cut 3 of the words and glued them together to get some height.  Create a varied look with the stencil by changing the pressure of your sponge or ink applicator as you move from top to bottom.  Then I splattered over that with dark brown ink and sponged the edges.  Gold foil down the side and gold brads go with the gold filament behind the words.

Here’s the inside. Cut a 4 x 10 3/4 piece of paper and die cut the pop stand on the center fold.  I repeated the sponging with the stencil on just the 2 corners.

The cup has a vellum card stock “swirl of smoke.”

The cup is cut from red polka dot paper twice.  Flip the die for the second cut if your paper is blank or has a different pattern on back. The heart on the cup is from the Hanging Charm Pull Card tied with a little bit of Baker’s Twine.  Cut the saucer from red paper and sponge the design on with red ink. Then die cut the saucer with a circle die.

To hold the Gift Card, I die cut the flourishes from  the Oval Landscape Accordion and glued them down just at the three tips.  It’s so cute – but I ended up using a small glue dot on the card to keep it from slipping during mailing.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Pop It Up Wednesday!

A Cup of Tea

PIU Hor Oval 01

We are completely snowed in here so a cup of tea sounds wonderful to me!  These are Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups new Oval Landscape Accordion album mixed with the Gift Card Accordion, Flourishes Frame and Cup Pop Stand dies.

I made it to hold a gift card in the middle.

I repeated the sentiment from the front – Just a Note Clear Stamp – on the inside.  The snowflakes are from the All Seasons Tree.

Stay warm!  Hugs, Fran

Pop It Up Wednesday Sharing Coffee

A Coffee Gift Card holder card!

PIU Coffee 01

This is the front and….

This is the inside.

To make the inside of this card-

  1. Cut a piece of turquoise card stock 4 1/4 x 11″ and fold in the middle.
  2. Cut a piece of turquoise patterned paper 4 x 10 3/8 and fold in the middle.  Align the Sleigh Gift Card holder mechanism in the middle of the score line and run through your die cutting machine.
  3. Cut the cup out of pink card stock and the steam out of vellum.  Layer a 3/8 strip of white onto a 1/2 strip of black card stock.  The length doesn’t matter as long as it is longer than the cup is wide.  Die cut it from the cup where you want the band to be.
  4. Die cut 5 flowers from the All Season Tree in turquoise and adhere to the cup band.  Attach small pearls to the center of the flowers and attach to the cup. Adhere the cup to the Pop Up.
  5. Cut the edges of 2 pieces  4 1/4 x 5 1/2 of white card stock with the Paris Edges die.  This will give you plenty of room to place the white pieces on your card (see photo.)  Trim off the excess. Stamp the small cup from the Coffee & Tea Clear stamp set on the bottom edge of your card.

For the front of the card –

PIU Coffee 01

  1. Use the new Paisley stencil over a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of turquoise patterned paper and let dry.
  2. Cut the Paris edge the same way as you did for the inside and adhere to the front.
  3. Stamp the little cups the same way as you did for the inside.
  4. Cut a 2 x 4 1/2″ piece of white card stock and add a 2 1/2 piece of turquoise patterned paper to the bottom.  Wrap a pink ribbon around the paper. Stamp the images from the Coffee & Tea Clear stamp set as shown.  Punch a hole in the top and add ribbon.  Attach to the front using pop dots.

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
