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!

Oval Accordion 03

This Pop It Ups Oval Accordion card uses Saturated Canary’s Secrets digital stamp.  I sized it to fit my card and then cut the image apart so I could use part on the front and part on the back.  I used the Lattice die on the front – first in Pink Pirouette (which was too dark) and then in Whisper White – leaving just a bit of the underneath showing.

The sentiment in the middle is one of my absolute favorites from the Spring Catalog called Build a Bouquet.  I’m using it all over the place!  I replace the drawn line on the image with Baker’s Twine and added some hearts. The flower paper is unknown – very old from my stash, and the pink is from the Subtles Paper Pack. I colored the images with my Copic Markers.

Funky Cakes Big Day

SAB Big Day 03

Sparkly, birthday fun!  This is the Sale-a-bration set, Big Day, combined with some EDC Peel Offs called Funky Cakes – and lots of glitter- on a Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Rectangular Accordion die and Oval Accordion die.  The paper is Birthday Bash Specialty paper and all the colors are taken from this color combo.  I colored the cake with Blendabilities and Copics. I masked off half the sentiment, stamped it twice, and popped up the “celebrate.”

Bright and happy!  The Oval Accordion has the rest of the sentiment from the front.  (Again, mask off and stamp)  Looks like a party to me!  Hugs, Fran

Poppy Halloween

Poppy 05

Here’s Poppy hanging out for Karen Burniston’s September Challenge!  He’s sitting on an Oval Accordion die just waiting for the fun to begin!  The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Tee Hee Hee and it says “People call me a witch…..like it’s a bad thing.”  Too funny!  I used Karen’s Cloud Edges die for the edges.

Photo Fun


Oval Accordion 03

It’s challenge time for Karen Burniston’s Design Challenge team and this month’s challenge is photos on Accordion dies!  I chose pictures from a very trip to Universal Studios and kept my Oval Accordion neutral in Basic Gray and Smokey Slate so I could add lots of fun colors and accents.

To begin my album I embossed Smokey Slate with one of Karen’s new embossing folders, added my Basic Gray strip across the middle and then die cut all the Oval Accordion Album pages.  On the front I added lots of stars, arrows and ribbons.

Can you see the lines of stars going from page to page?  Those are little stars glued to fishing line!

I tied Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry ribbon in the folds and added bits of Bermuda Bay ribbon to that.

The talk bubble in this photo was actually in the picture – it just didn’t fit – so I fussy cut it and added it to the top.  (One of those “I can make it fit” moments!)  I backed all the accordions with Basic Gray.
