Pop Up Card Using Hedgehugs

For my birthday, I was given a die that makes pop ups (non SU) and it makes a pop up card so easy to do.

For my friend who gave me this die, this card is for you

I used the Stamparatus to place and stamp the images from "Hedgehugs" and then added extra interest by using "Timeless Texture"

This Whisper White art piece is layered with Picture Perfect DSP

I just love these little Hedgehogs and the skunk is "stinkin" cute!  After fussy cutting them out they were added to the pop up mechanisms using dimensionals.
Tip:  When die cutting the inside, die cut the DSP at the same time.  The DSP then fits perfectly around the pop ups.

Above are close ups of the starring characters.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Hedgehugs, Beautiful Day, Timeless Texture
Inks:  Chocolate Chip, SU Markers (Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Always Artichoke, Berry Burst), Black Memento, Crumb Cake Stampin' Blender
Papers:  Early Espresso, Whisper White, Picture Perfect DSP
Accessories:  1/2" Early Espresso Seam Binding (retired), Dimensionals, Lucy Label Pop Up Die (non SU)

You Are Awesome - SUO Challenges #192

This week's challenge with SUO Challenges is to create a project using only one colour.

For this challenge I made a triple layer card using the stamp from the Occasions Catalogue "Epic Celebrations" using the colour Night of Navy.

I used the tutorial with Splitcoaststampers as my guide to make this triple layer card. However, I  did make some adjustments to the measurements of the layers to fit an A2 card.

Layer dimensions:

Whisper White:  4 by 5 1/4"  card base layer
                           Layer 1:  4 1/2 by 3 1/4"
                           Layer 2: 3 1/2 by 2 1/4"
                           Layer 3: 2 1/2 by 1 3/8"
                           Sentiment: 1 5/8 by 5/8"

Night of Navy:  Card Base 4 1/4 by 5 1/2"
                          Mat for layer 1 4 5/8 by 3 5/8"
                          Mat for layer 2  3 3/4 by 2 3/8"
                          Mat for layer 3  2 5/8 by 1 1/4"
                          Mat for sentiment 1 7/8 by 7/8"

After the images were stamped and the layers put together using dimensionals,  the images were coloured with an aqua painter using a Night of Navy marker applied to a stamping block and then shaded using a blender pen.

Clear Wink of Stella was applied to most of the images.

To finish the card I added some retired Urban District Embellishments and a bow made using  Night of Navy Baker's twine.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Epic Celebrations
Ink:  Night of Navy ink pad and marker
Papers:  Whisper White, Night of Navy
Accessories:  Stampin' Dimensionals, Night of Navy Baker's Twine, Urban District embellishments, Clear Wink of Stella, Aqua Painter, Blender Pen

A Framed Mountain Scene that lights Up

Cards that light up are something enjoy making.  I'm certainly getting better creating electrical circuits for the Chibi lights.

The scene I created using the Mountain stamp set from the Occasions catalogue was inspired  by several similar ones I have seen on Pinterest.

However, I went several steps further.

After adding a Chibi light I framed it.

I started with a 5 by 5 piece of Whisper White card stock and used the stamp set and various colours of ink and sponging to create the above scene. The colours of ink used are listed below.

To add Chibi lights on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock I used the tutorial by Splitcoaststampers here

Here's a picture showing the light activated.  You'll see my thumb pressing on the battery that activates the light.

How did I create the stars"  Prior to starting sponging the sky I splattered some liquid embossing fluid with a paint brush flicked over my hand.  Once dry I sponged over top of it, and when I was finished I took an eraser and removed it revealing the stars.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Waterfront
Mountains and Horizon  Basic Gray
Sky:  Pool Party, Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Trees:  Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
Accessories:  Chibi lights (non SU), 5 by 5" frame, Stamparatus
