Yesterday was a bit of a banner day… a Stampin’ Up! shipment was delivered with new goodies. 😁 I couldn’t w-a-i-t to play, but had to as we had choir practice last night with a concert next weekend. But… first thing this morning I got busy and played with these dies first. And here’s what I created.

Pretty Pop-Up Dies.1

What these dies do is create an impression that can be ‘pushed up’ from behind to give the image dimension. I chose to color some of those with various Stampin’ Blends: Cajun Craze for the large butterfly, Granny Apple Green (should have used the Parakeet Party but forgot!), and the new Orchid Oasis. I used a Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color the butterfly body. I added a single Classic Matte Dot for the head of the large butterfly and three smallest of the Basic Rhinestone Jewels for flower centers. I used the fine tip of the Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add dots for some of the flowers. But I AM ahead of myself…

Steps:

  • On a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 square of Soft Succulent, place the appropriate die (I used the oval from the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies) in the center & run it through the Cut & Emboss machine.
  • With the largest square from the fabulously Stylish Shapes Dies, run the panel through again so that it is 3 x 3 with a stitched border.
  • From the back of the panel, push up the flowers & butterflies to raise them. Color as desired.
  • Adhere the square to a Basic White piece cut 3 14 x 3 14 and set aside.
  • Prepare the card base: Soft Succulent 5 1/2 x 6 3/8, scored at 4 1/4.
  • Cut 2 panels of Basic White (5 1/4 x 2) & run through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Stitched Greenery Die. Adhere to the card front and the small panel inside, both with liquid glue.
  • Close the card and center the Pop-Ups piece, with glue only on the left side of the square.
  • Add a small Linen Thread bow with a glue dot.
Pretty Pop-Ups Dies.2

For the inside… Cut a panel of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4. Run the panel through the Cut & emboss machine with some of the small flower dies and a butterfly from the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies. Color the butterfly lightly with Soft , adding the body with Black Stampin’ Write Marker, then antennae. Stamp the sentiment in Soft Succulent ink using another NEW PRODUCT – Charming Sentiments stamp set. (This has a coordinating die set but I did not use it for this project.). Adhere the panel to the inside of the card & d-o-n-e!

Pretty Pop-Ups Dies.3

I used the same Stitched Greenery Die to create the impression on the envelope flap – and that was it. The card is soft and gentle and precious. I love how it turned out! Can’t wait to try out some of the other dies in this set 👍 Lovely, Lovely.
