An Awesome Pop-Up Card for Him

Marquee Messages

 Hello Stampers,

Today's card is a pull out all the stops kind of card.  It's a stepped up card all about the details.  It's a Pop-Up Card.  And finally, it's a card that works equally well for a guy or a gal.

Let's Talk About the Marquee Card Front

Marquee Messages is the focal point stamp set.  I stamped the marquee on Real Red Card Stock and embossed the whole thing in white.  

The "You Are" and the "awesome!" were stamped with black ink.  Hint:  Then, I went back and added white embossing powder to the word awesome before the ink dried.  I intentionally left a little of the black showing.

The Writing Notes Background Stamp was perfect for adding the look of notepaper.

And the accessories were created with the Sealed with Love stamp set and the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

 Let's take a peek at the inside.  It may surprise you. 

Balloon Pop-Up Card

Bet you thought that this card was going to be a Valentine.  Nope, it's a Pop-Up Birthday Card for my sweetheart.  It's not very often that I use 4 stamp sets on one card, but this one is for Joe. He's worth going the extra mile.

I am really digging the Balloon Pop-Up Dies and the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set.  See the Video below for Tips and Tricks for using the Balloon Pop-Up Dies.


Watch Stampin' Up! trainer, Brandi, give some tips and tricks on using the Balloon Adventure Stamp Set, Balloon Bouquet Punch, and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits.
Balloon Adventures
 I was having so much fun with the Balloon Adventures bundle that I decided to make a gift bag too with my Gift Bag Punch Board.

This was a nostalgic color challenge for me, because Red, White and Black were the School Colors for my sons when they were growing up.  My washing Machine oozed Red, White and Black in those days.
