Hip Hip Hooray, It’s Your Day

08 500pxl 2016 OC Party Pop-Up 1

What an amazing football weekend.  Saturday’s morning game was a blow out (bummer), the afternoon game was a nail biter and kept me watching.  Sunday’s morning game (Seattle vs Vikings) what an AMAZING game.  We were on the edge of our seats the second half and did a lot of yelling and cheering until the very end.  Go Hawks!!!

I had a chance to play with my new Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and here is my first design.  The pink, black and white color combo is secretly my favorite!  Lol!  So, I decided to use some of my Black Glimmer to give a boat load of sparkle.  [I had a hard time getting it to “shine”.]

CARD BASE:  As I said earlier, I just love the pink, black and white color combo.  So, the card base starts with Pink Pirouette layered with Basic Black and then the Black & White stripe from the  Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.  I was on a “more height” day and popped this layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lol!

FOCAL POINT:  Woohoo!  I was excited to play with the new Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies in the Occasions Catalog.  I ran the “hip hip hooray” die through my Big Shot with Pink Pirouette and then decided to finish cutting out the rectangle shape.  [TIP:  This die leaves the sides attached so it can be placed into the interior of your card to create a pop-up.  Sweet!]  Then I ran the die thru again with my Black Glimmer.  Next I popped out the Black Glimmer letters and shapes then glued them into the open Pink Pirouette spaces.  [TIP:  I adhered the Pink Pirouette die cut layer to a slightly smaller piece of whisper white cardstock.]  Again, I was on a “more height” kick and popped this layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well.  Lol!

SENTIMENT:  I felt it needed just a little something to finish up the “Hip Hip Hooray” and decided on “It’s Your Day” from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set, also in the new Occasions Catalog.  I stamped the words onto a narrow strip of Melon Mambo and nipped the endd to look even more banner-esk.  AND guest what……I popped this with a couple Stampin’ Dimensional halves as well.  I told you I was on a “more height” day.  Lol!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and have a sparkly Monday!  Thanks for stopping by today.
