"Popping Up" to Create Some Christmas Fun!

Have you learned a bazillion ways to Create Christmas with the new Jumbo Stamps and Dies from Stampendous? We have a few more for you today!

I've created a Pop Up Christmas card using the Pop Up Dies set. This enabled me to add more dimension and fun to the card. The images were stamped and die cut. I used the edge of my palette knife to dab some Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste along each layer of the tree. I sprinkled the wet paste heavily with Stampendous' new Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder, and heated the whole thing. Now it's puffy and sparkly and snowy! For the inside base I ink stenciled the Dreamweaver Holiday Greetings design. Then I paste-embossed just sentiment portion on contrasting cardstock, and sprinkled it with the Sparkle Puff as well. A stamped and die cut star was layered using green and glitter white cardstock from Core'dinations, and adhered to the very top pop up tab of my pretty plaid paper. I stamped words and ink distressed a section of flag trim with the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Joyful Phrases. All of the same images, sentiments, embossing powders, and stencils were used to decorate the front of the card as well. The Pop Up cards make such an impact and display for the holidays...or any time of the year.

More creative Christmas fun coming your way...
