Incy Wincy POP IT UP Challenge

 Isn't she adorable!!!
She is from Sassy Studios collection who is our sponsor this week.

Head on over to Incy Wincy and check out all the wonderful creations for some inspiration!

The is my first attempt at any type of step or "cut out" type card.  It was so easy!!!  I'll be making more, for sure.

Embossing the "LOVE" stamp I found in the clearance bin at Michael's a few weeks ago -
I think I paid $1.50 or less for it and boy have I gotten
of use out of it!  
If you don't believe me, just look through my blog photos!

This is Blushing Pink Pastel Opaque from
(LOVE the effect!!!)

These seem to be my "go to" dies - they are
A2 Matting Basics B. 
 (Someday I'm going to own the "A" set too :)


The heart was "double layered" primarily because I knew it needed to be
 "stable" and not
 flop over when attached to the top of the card,

I COVERED the back of the die cut heart
 (Cricut Best of 2006 cartridge)
 with feathers 

 The back was covered with another die cut, just to hide the "glue and feathered mess in the back".
  Oh, my bad, I'm supposed to say
 "for ascetic purposes". 

Close up of  the sentiment and bling.
(some Scor-Tape (1/8") and pink glitter and some
 great little flowers from
 (from my winning stash - Yahoo!!!)

The digi, the heart and the sentiment block were all attached with foam tape to "pop em up".

Have fun with the challenge.

  9. Again a beautiful romantic card, however, again I'm afraid entered over our limit for consideration in the Top 3. Thanks for sharing with us at Addicted To Stamps and More. Caz

    1. That's cool!!! I didn't realize there was a limit - a little difficult to catch AlL the requirements of all the company's posting challenges when they all have different rules. You would believe that a company would want as many blog entries as possible, not restrict them! But, alas, I will follow the rules and find sites that WANT to be promoted!
