Pop Up Bouquet

SSIC-2-pop-up-hydrangea-fro

Hello my friends!  Happy Sunday!  With Sunday comes another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge!  This week, our challenge hostess is the talented and sweet Kristine!  Kris has chosen 2 Samuel 6:14 "And David was dancing before the LORD with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod." 

Her challenge is DANCING - Make a card that "moves" (ie. tilt card, slider, pop up, waterfall, etc. - LOTS on scs resources)

I decided to make a pop up card, and I put my main image inside instead of on the front.  I wanted it to feel like I am giving the recipient a bouquet of flowers, so that is why I wanted the image to pop up rather than a sentiment.  I used this month's release from Our Daily Bread designs, Hydrangea.  I love this image! I love coloring it in all different colors!  I also have mounted it on a Cheery Lynn Die, French Pastry Doily.  For the pop up itself, I used acetate because I didn't want colored card stock to show through the doily.  For the front of my card, I used Our Daily Bread designs Mini Tags 1 and the Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 3 that it was custom made to fit.  I also used an MS Shell edge punch and a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and Lattice frame.  LOVE these dies!!!   On the inside I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the future message.

I do want to mention that Cheery Lynn is having a Design Team Call and if you love dies, this would be a great team to be on!  Check it out here!

My papers are: SU! Marina Mist, SU! Very Vanilla, SU! retired Certainly Celery dp, K&Co Cottage Garden dp.  I stamped the sentiment with Marian Mist, then the tag itself with Certainly Celery.  The image is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics: B37, B34, B32, G99, G82, G40.  The ribbon is SU! and the little rose buds are ZVA Creative.

Our Sponsor this week is  Designed2Delight
The prize is a $10.00 store credit!
Please be sure to stop by the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog for the full devotional and challenge details.I know Kris will bless you with her thoughts on today's verse.  I love thinking about the joy with which David expressed his love for the Lord.  He as all out for his Lord and wasn't ashamed to show it.  Perhaps that's just one of the reasons God said he was a man after His own heart! 
For more inspiration please visit my DT Sisters:
Chris, Linda, Peggysue, Miesje, Rebecca, Lisa (on break), Kris, Sabrina, & MariLynn
Randi (on leave)

This is awesome Grace, I love that image also and who would have thought to use acetate..:)

Gorgeous colors Grace! What a great idea to use acetate, this would look great for any pop up, thanks. The embossed panel for the message is perfect, it matches so well with the dp and flowers.

Kristine said...

This is such a "Grace" card... and by that I mean it so looks like you! The colors, flowers, lattice on the front--matches your blog and just has that gardeny feel. Very lovely to send someone a bouquet in the mail! The front is just as gorgeous as the inside!!

I hope you have a wonderful time catching up with your sister--cherish your time together and have a blessed week!

Thanks for your continued prayers for Randi!!! We all love her so much!

Adeline Ng said...

hey Grace, this is such a pretty pop up card! i love how the soothing colors of green and blue, how clever to have pop up a bouquet of flowers.

Bette said...

What a beautiful card, Grace! Thanks for sharing. Do you have tutorial for it? Enjoy your visit with your sister, I know how special that is.

Peggysuez said...

Hi Grace! I pray that you already are enjoying a much needed and long anticipated visit with your sister! This is one of the most beautiful pop up cards I've ever seen, and what a great thought to use the acetate so it wouldn't show through. I agree that I believe this is one of the reasons that David was a man after God's own heart, celebrating fully and unashamedly! Lovely card, have a blessed week!

MaxineD said...

Hi Grace, this is such an elegant card - what a blessing for the person who will receive it.
Blessings

Lovely, as always, Grace! I've been missing your beautiful creations! They are a joyful feast for the eyes, and a lovely encouragement to the soul. I love the fact that so many other women care enough about the loved ones in their life to create beautiful 'packages' for the words they want to share.
It's good to be back. =)

Beautiful card! Thanks for taking part in the CYDA challenge xx

Traci S. said...

Wow Grace, this is stunning! I love how you colored it...so vibrant and alive...David was so full of life and love for the Lord...I love the leaves and vines and the lattice on the front of the card...as well as the tag and that gorgeous hydrangea paper! Beautiful with the ribbon!

You open it up and...VOILA!

Out pops that beautiful bouquet, with the wonderful "lace" to hold it all together. I love all of the coloring, and those leaves are so beautiful. I love the embossed sheet on the base...it is so incredible! It reminds me of days gone by when people were often treated to bouquets of flowers fresh from the garden for dates and such. Thios is one of my all time FAVORITES of your cards. Amazing work...from Amazing You!

He IS Able!

I love your color combination! I certainly miss that designer paper from SU! too. My favorite color is brown, so I couldn't get enough of that pattern in Close To Cocoa.
Kindest regards,
