Be My Valentine Pop Up Card

Pop-Up Cards. We all love them, but how do you make them you might ask. Today's post shows you how quickly and easily you can make your own pop-up cards. It's fun and easy to do when you follow along with my video demonstration. I hope you enjoy watching this Video Replay of my February 5th Facebook Live in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group and find it helpful in creating your own Pop-Up Cards! Trust me when I say the people who receive your pop-up cards will love them and be filled with delight and awe.

Black, White, and Real Red - a classic color combination for Valentine's Day and Love! The True Love Designer Series Paper is all black & white with floral prints on one side and geometric prints on the other side. Pair it with Real Red for classic Valentine cards as I did on these Pop-Up cards I made for my daughters or add a punch of your favorite Stampin' Up! color!

The stitches on the banner, the scallops on the black heart, and a single rhinestone adds lots of pretty detail to the inside of this pop-up card.

I made the treat boxes below for my daughters to coordinate with their pop-up cards above. I used True Love Designer Series Paper with the Love You Always Treat Boxes and filled with chocolates and a Graeters Ice Cream git card.

New Pocket Card for You

Check out this awesome Fun Fold Card I received from my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and friend Sue Thomas. This pocket card layout is new to me. I love it, and would like to share it with others too.

In this video replay below of my February 26th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make this style of fun fold card by CASEing the lovely card above that Sue sent me. I chose to use the same Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite she did. You'll see, however, that while we both used many of the same products with the same card layout, our cards are each unique and different. I hope you enjoy watching this video and find it inspiring and helpful in creating beautiful cards of your own.

Pocket cards are always fun to make and are a fun surprise for those who are lucky enough to receive one.

For the card below, I used the same paper from the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper pack but switched out the Merry Merlot and Basic White card stocks for Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. I like both pairs of card stock with this particular DSP equally well. Art Gallery Stamp Set & Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Yes, you can add multiple colors to a single stamp image. I colored on the butterfly and hummingbird solid stamps with Stampin' Write Markers. I used Sponge Daubers and Classic Stampin' Pads to color the flowers. Be sure to view the video above to see me demonstrate each of these coloring techniques.
