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.
