Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I am sharing the Love of Leaves and Stitched Leaves Dies with you. How perfect for this time of year? The leaves on the tree in my front yard are just starting to change. We have already had our first frost, so we are in for an early fall I think. For this blog post I have combined the Love of Leaves Bundle with the Plaid Tidings paper.
Love of Leaves and Plaid Tidings
This simple pop-up card was inspired by a video I just happened to catch on a Facebook live by Ronda Wade. I thought the simple pop-up mechanism was genius and can’t believe I have never done it before. That changes today! You are going to love this technique too. I will be making this card and a few others on my weekly Facebook live video on my new Prime Time With The Pampered Stamper group. Here is my card:
Inside of Love of Leaves Pop-Up Card
Here you can see the inside of this great card. Don’t you just love the colour combination of Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Early Espresso? I think I would like a shirt in this plaid.
Here you can see an even closer view of the leaf popped up.
Here is the simple mechanism for the pop-up feature in this card. Simple cut two snips 1/2″ apart, 3/4″ deep along the centrefold of the card.
Push the snipped section into the centre of the card. Add some Stampin’ Seal to the left hand side of the “bump out” section. Attach the leaf to this so that when the card is closed it lays flat inside the card, but when the card opens, it pops up!
Prime Time With The Pampered Stamper
In response to the COVID situation I have been looking for ways to keep my business viable and I have come up with this great new private Facebook group. If you enjoy the longer tutorial videos where I make the cards from start to finish with all the tips and tricks you need to be successful, then this group is for you. It is only ten dollars a month which is approximately the cost of a cup of coffee per week! Besides the weekly live videos on Thursdays at 3pm, you also get a monthly 16 project pdf tutorial AND a weekly draw. As one of my followers said, it is also a great safe place to interact with other stampers. I hope you join! The first draw happens at ten am today.
If you want to join Prime Time With The Pampered Stamper just click on this link and follow the instructions. This group is a free perk for my team members, another great reason to get the amazing deal on the starter kit before the end of September. Read more about it here.
I am so happy that you stopped by today. Enjoy the fall weather and happy stamping too. Have a super day!
