"Pop it Up" !





I made this card for "Pop up card" swap in the yahoo group I belong to. I also saw this challenge at the Pixie Cottage. At Cute Card Thursday, they are also running "Animal Crackers" challenge. I'd been wanting to use this Stove stamp for a very very long time. I mean, I think I bought this stamp like 8 years ago, but never inked it before! lol!! Anyways, I found "chef Amanda" from House Mouse this summer. I knew I would be making a card with these stamps soon :-) Finally the right time came, and I made this card! :-) The Pop Up parts are Chef Amanda & the image of flour sack. You can see where I used the "stages" in my 2nd picture. The flour stamp is also an OLD CTMH stamp! ...like old as the stove stamp! LOL! The little cupcake in the middle is the center of sentiment stamp I found at Michaels ($1!). I stamped, colored and cut another mouse on the right. I colored the mouse image with a truffle, cut it from a larger stamp with 3 mice but I used only this mouse. I used color pencils, copics, paper piecing, perfect pearls, glaze pen... it is more shimmery in certain parts of this 'kitchen scene', in person. The sentiment stamp is from All Night Media . I used another dollar stamp for the front. I paperpieced the cupcakes and watercolored the cupcake stand. I found the pink CS with white dots heat embossed from my scraps. I used scallop circle nestabilities on this scrap. I used two dp from DCWV, cut them in triangle. Those yummy looking round embellishments are from my winning prize of Bingo game, from Peggie :-) It took a while to make this card but I enjoyed making it! :-)

Hope you all are having a great weekend. It's been a gloomy, cold weekend here...
