I was inspired by the Pop-Up Mermaid Card that is featured at Michelle’s Craft Corner (check out her YOU TUBE video). Here is my tropical version which just goes to show how versatile Stampin’ Up! products can be!
INKS: OLD OLIVE, SOFT SKY, PEAR PIZZAZ , CAJUN CRAZE, CRUSHED CURRY, MOMENTO BLACK
PAPER: CALYPSO CORAL Base card (5.5″x 4.25″), WHISPER WHITE (front) (5.25″x4″), WHISPER WHITE (inside) (8″x5″–score at 4″), OLD OLIVE (for pop-up)
BIRDS: Stamped with Momento Black on Whisper White card stock and colored with STAMPIN’ BLENDS Markers (DAFFODIL DELIGHT, CALYPSO CORAL, SMOKEY SLATE, BERMUDA BAY) and a BLACK Stampin’ Write marker for the beak. They are not hard to fussy cut; but I used a Brother “SCAN-n-Cut” machine to cut a sheet of stamped images. I find it worth the investment for those stamps that do not come with dies/framelits. Leave a comment if you are interested in more information.
I cut the “sentiment” out with this label punch. I have used it with other cards featuring the Bird Banter set (see previous post) because it looks like a dialogue “cloud” from a cartoon strip! It you consider buying…check out the coordinating “Label Me Pretty” stamp set. And, remember…I think you can never have enough good punches! Worth the investment!
These stamps were used to create the background paper for the pop-up feature. If you go to my YOU TUBE video I demonstrate how to use stamps from each to create a tropical paradise reminiscent of the retired Botanical Garden DSP.
Here are all the other great products which I use regularly to create any projects:
