TMS#90: Surprise Pop-Up Card



Good Tuesday morning! No sketch from Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week, but a technique challenge instead. I will have to admit, I am not much for techniques.... I don't have a lot of patience.... Surprisingly, I will concede that I did find this one to be rather fun though! You can view a tutorial here; there is also a YouTube video link towards the end of the tutorial. I had more luck watching the video. Also, I would recommend using a piece of scratch paper to practice with before breaking out the "good stuff"!


I colored my image with pencils and then applied a LOT of glitter.... Glitter...it makes me happy! Since my DP is pretty busy, I kept the layering and embellishing to a minimum; just some simple felt flowers with buttons. The real fun with this card is when you pull up the tag to expose the hidden message. How fun is that? Now that I have learned how, I think I may be using this technique again....


Image/Sentiment: Stamping Bella

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen

Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Fine Linen and Dark Chocolate, Heidi Grace Designs DP

Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Doodlebug Glitter (brown), PTI Dark Chocolate Twill and Buttons, PTI Raspberry Fizz, Fine Linen, Simply Chartreuse, and Hawaiian Shores Felt

Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Corner Chomper, The Cat's Pajama's CutUp Die, DMC Floss, Red Line Tape, EK Success 3D Dots


I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has crafted using this fun technique; I hope to see you play along too!


Thanks for stopping by today!

This is adorable! I love that image and the way you glittered the flower petals. Surprise pop-up cards are pretty easy--they take a little extra time but the WOW factor is worth it!
