VIDEO: Surprise Pop-Up Diroama Card Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Four Feathers Surprise Pop Up Diorama Card VIDEO Tutorial #stampinup www.juliedavison.com
I am having so much fun with this Surprise Pop-Up Diorama Card. (Did you see the Festival of Tress Diorama Card I posted yesterday?) It is much easier than it looks! And once you start, you won't be able to stop! I love that it folds flat (so it can mail in a regular envelope!) and it automatically pops open into a diorama when you open it.

Folds Flat for Mailing! Fits in a regular envelope.
How to Make the Surprise Pop-Up Diorama Card:
  • Cut cardstock to 5-1/2"  x 10-1/2".
  • Score at 3-1/2", 6-1/2", 7", and 10".
  • Add Sticky Strip to the 1/2" tab on the end.
  • Punch a 2" Circle window in the 3" panel next to the 1/2" tab.
  • Peel off the Sticky Strip liner and fold the card front flat to glue the tab inside the card front.
Watch my video tutorial to see how it comes together! 
I have also made a slightly larger version of this card. The finished size was 4" x 5-1/2". The larger size requires a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock or designer paper. Click here to see an example of the larger card and a PRINTABLE TUTORIAL with cutting and scoring measurements.

Holiday Control Freaks Blog Tour: All is Calm Ornament & Pop-Up Diorama Card

Welcome!!! Whether you came from Mindy Backes' Bada-Bing Paper Crafting blog or if you just arriving, you're in for a treat! This month, the Control Freaks are creating showcasing holiday projects on our monthly blog tour. It's been cold and snowy here in Central Illinois, so it's definitely feeling like Christmas!

I have two great projects to share with you using the All is Calm Designer Paper from the Holiday Catalog.

For the first project, I used 3" x 1/4" pieces of the designer paper and wrapped them tightly around a skewer (you can use a pencil too). I put all the curly pieces inside a clear ornament bulb and added some of the gorgeous Lost Lagoon ribbon and Snowflake Embellishment. I can't wait to put up our tree so I can hang up this ornament!

For the next project, I used the All is Calm Designer Paper on a fun pop-up card.

Stamp of the Month Club: Four Feathers

I picked the Four Feathers stamp set from the Annual Catalog as my November pick for Stamp of the Month Club. By the time club members receive their package, it will be the 1st of December, so I decided to switch gears from holiday crafting and focus on a stamp set that could be used for many occasions. Four Feathers fits the bill! I have seen some beautiful projects using this stamp set. Make sure to check out my Holiday Catalog Pinterest Board for more ideas!

Here is the first of three cards for the November Stamp of the Month Club.

AW29: Kind Koala Surprise Diorama Card + PDF Tutorial

http://aroundtheworldstampinchallenges.blogspot.ca/2014/11/aw29-colors-couleurs-colores.htmlIt's time for another Around the World Challenge! Our Design Team is made up of one talented demonstrator from each country/market where Stampin' Up! operates. I love seeing how stampers Around the World interpret each new challenge. I hope you'll play along with us! Click here to see all the details of the newest challenge.

This month, we're doing color challenges. Here is design for AW29. The colors for this challenge are Real Red, Hello Honey, and Crumb Cake. I struggled a little bit at first getting the right ratio of colors, but I think I finally got it right with this Kind Koala card.

I used the Crumb Cake Blendabilities. It seems a little dark for Crumb Cake, but it works well with the Real Red and Hello Honey Designer Paper.

When I went to pull out Real Red cardstock for the card base, I found the pre-scored piece for a surprise diorama card. This card is super easy. I love the WOW factor of opening the flat card and having it turn into a diorama.
