Pop Up Birthday - Stampin' Up! Pretty Pop-Ups Dies

   The designers over at Global Design Project have a fun theme for their challenge this week; Beautiful Bugs.  Definitely can do that with my new Pretty Pop-Ups dies!  Don't sleep on this fun die set.  You might overlook it in the new catalog because it isn't paired with a stamp set in a bundle but these dies are really cute and different from other die sets we have right now.  Check them out on page 17 of the new catalog.

  I used the die along with a pretty color combo I had noted from a bedding catalog.  

  The delicate petals and wings all have a lovely dimension to to them when you fold them outwards.  I found the easiest way to do this is with my piercing tool and poke them out from the back.  After coloring the images with Blends I die cut the image I cut it out with a retired oval die set and then cut another for the backing.  I popped the top layer with dimensional for extra dimension.  Then added a larger oval in Calypso Coral for a matte.

  The sentiment layer is also cut and colored and popped across the card front.  I added a bit of Petal Pink ribbon and linen thread as well as some Iridescent rhinestones to some of the small flower.  Some details on the main image are highlighted with Wink of Stella but it doesn't show in the photo.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
