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
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.
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!
