Hello, and Happy Friday everyone!! At the Friday Mashup, we have a special treat for you this week!! Not only do you get the option of Mashing up 2 fun challenges with us, but we are joining the Paper Lovin' Gals this week also! WooHoo!
So here's your challenge:
- Make a Mother's Day project for Mom, Aunt, Grandma, etc
- Or Make a project with a Pop-Up element
- Or Mash it Up and make a project for Mom with a Pop-Up element
- Or join in BOTH challenges and make a project for Mom with a Pop-Up element, using the inspiration photo above!! Whew!!
Now, I have to admit that I was intimidated by the pop-up element. So much so, that I kept putting this off. So tonight, I told my dear hubby about the challenge(s). He, being a silly, goofy guy who likes puns, advised me to use a play on words. Well...I have this popsicle from the just-retired Occassions Mini catalog. Other than that, it's just plain weird! LOL! My colors are based on the inspiration photo. I have a crumb cake base with a layer of cherry cobbler. My layer of whisper white is stamped with an old stamp from "So Very" set, using pretty in pink and cherry cobbler ink. I also used the adorning accents impressions folder, then lightly sponged the hearts with pretty in pink ink. The popsicle is from "Mouthwatering" colored with my regal rose and crumb cake markers. You can't tell in this dark picture, but the rose part is embossed and smells like watermelon! I cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals. My "Up" is simply crumb cake and rose red card stock shaped in an arrow, also embossed with hearts and popped up. The other sentiment is from a retired SAB set "Best Yet", punched out and layered over a heart. Finally, seam binding in rose red and crumb cake finish it off.
This might be the strangest card I have ever made. But Bruce likes it. Maybe he'll give it to his mom! ;-)
Be sure to checkout the other inspiring REAL pop-up cards at the Friday Mashup blog, and join the Paper Lovin' Gals too!! Can't wait to see what you create!
