Wednesday’s Card: Loads of Love Pop-up!

Good Morning All!

I posted a card using this stamp set HERE a couple of weeks ago. I just love it, so I had to use it again. I thought the truck was perfect for a pop-up. So cute! It’s a very simple pop-up – just one cut, but it really makes the card. I created the clouds and the sun using masking tape, so it’s all one flat card piece.

I bought the masking tape at the Great American Scrapbook Convention a couple of weeks ago – the big kind that will mask any size. It wasn’t cheap – I think $17 for the roll, but I was getting tired of piecing together post-its. I’m loving it.

Enjoy and have a great week!

SONG: “Halfway Home” and “Closed Down” by Billy Pilgrim. One of my FAVORITE bands. I haven’t been able to use their songs on YouTube for copyright reasons, but for some reason, with the voice-over it was ok!

    OMG!!! I love this card!! I bought the loads of love set when it first came out and used it all the time, I think it might be time to dust it off and start using it again! Also love the foam applicator idea with the stampin up inks! I actually made little applicators for my girls and showed them the technique at my stamp class last Saturday night!! Love love love your cards and am soo glad you share them!

    Hiiii Darlene!… This card so cute. I love the idea of the “pop-up”. I haven’t done pop-up in so long. You did a fabulous job with the masking techniques too. And I LOVE the wire! SO clever. 🙂

    I love this card. It pops and moves. You are so creative!! What is the mat that you are using? I love how it wipes off.

      @Chris – its a craft mat by Tim Holtz. It’s indestructible! You can get it at your local craft store.

    LOVE this card! Loads of Love was the first Stampin’ Up set I ever bought and I still love it and use it often. It’s always nice to see fresh ideas with something that’s been around. I wish I had your kind of creativeness!! How long did it really take you to make this card? I think it would take me all day. Thanks so much for all the great inspiration!
