Hi Stampers. I’ve been looking for ways to expand my Stampin’ Up! business, find new items for my Etsy store AND have fun new ideas for my classes and blog. The Pop on By bundle fit that bill amazingly! I designed this card with a Realtor in mind. Wouldn’t this be awesome for Realtors to give to new home owners when they close on a house?
This card starts with a Balmy Blue card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I cut a 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip of Smokey Slate CS and glued it along the bottom of the card front to resemble sidewalk. Using the house from the Pop on By stamp set, I stamped the house in Memento Black ink onto a 4″ x 3 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. The house is colored with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. The roof and door are Soft Suede, the house is Pool Party, the curtains are Soft Sea Foam and the inside window lighting is the light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then used the paper snips to fussy cut out the house.
The inside of the card starts with a 5 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ layer of whisper White CS. I scored in from each side about 1/4″ (note – do not go all the way across the card – it will put a score line across the front of your house). I then placed the pop up house die onto that score line and run it through the Big Shot. I used the same die to cut a 5″ x 5″ layer of Early Espresso CS and a 5″ x 5″ layer of Balmy Blue CS. Then I fussy cut the Early Espresso to extract the roof and front door and glued them onto the white house layer. I then fussy cut the Balmy Blue layer to extract the front of the house and glued it over the white house layer.
Using scraps of Whisper White CS I stamped the curtains three times in Memento Black ink, colored the with the Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends. Then using the Pop Up House Thinlit dies again I used the coordinating framelit to cut them out. The curtains were then glued to the Whisper White layer of the house on the back side of the house. This layer is then carefully folded so it goes flat when the card closes. I adhered the Whisper White layer to the card base with tear and tape adhesive. This will all make a lot more sense when you watch my video below:
