Happy Birthday Elyssa

March 6, 2013

My beautiful granddaughter Elyssa turns 5 today.  I made her birthday card using the Stampin’ Up! exclusive  Pop ‘n Cuts Dies.

005I cut the inside of my card using Whisper White card with the Dress Form insert in place.   I cut the top of the dress form off so that I could create my cup cake pop up.  I stamped the cupcake bases from the Create-A-Cupcake stampset onto Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink.  I punched the images using the Cupcake Builder Punch.  I used the same punch to cut the “icing” from Pretty in Pink card.  I embossed theses pieces using the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder.  I attached the cupcakes to Whisper White card which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.   004I punched the little hearts from Rich Razzleberry card using the Owl Builder Punch.   The embossed Whisper White card is attached to Chocolate Chip card and then the dress form piece.  I cut another piece of Whisper White using the Pop ‘n Cut Base and embossed it using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I trimmed the piece so that it fitted behind the cupcakes and covered the “hole” where the dress form pops up.  I cut another piece of Whisper White and embossed it again using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, attached it to Pretty in Pink card which has both long edges punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and then to the card base.  007I stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set onto Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink and punched it using the Extra Large Oval Punch.  I attached it to one of the tags from the Lots of Tags Sizzlits and then to the card base.

To cover the holes where the die pops up, I cut a piece of Pretty in Pink card which is only 6″ x 4″ and scored on the 6″ length at 1-3/4″.  I punched one long edge of a strip of Chocolate Chip card using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, attached it behind the edge of the Pretty in Pink card and then attached the base inside. 001 I stamped “wish big” from the Bring on the Cake stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner of Whisper White card, embossed it using the Perfect Polka Dot Embosing Folder before attaching it to the card front.  I stamped the “dotted” image from the Pennant Parade stamp set onto Whisper White card using Pretty in Pink ink.  I used the Pennant Builder Punch to cut them out and attached them to Chocolate Chip card cut with the same punch.  I stamped the hearts from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set onto Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink, punched them out using the 1/2″ Circle Punch and added them to Chocolate Chip  3/4″ Circles.  I attached all these pieces together and attached them to the card front.

It is so addictive, thinking about all the ways you can use these Pop n’ Cuts.  Let me know what you think.

Bye or now, Kris.
