I cased this card from www.tenealewilliams.com
Thank you! I used Cherry Cobbler CS. It measures 41/2"x 51/2". I stamped a swirl using versa mark on the red CS, then added the old piece of music which I brushed the edged with gold ink. Next the red dotted ribbon was added, then the black dotted ribbon; all from Michaels.
I stamped the red heart then on top of that the birdcage then added a bird sticker. I drew the line holding the cage up. The love sentiment was stamped underneath, it is from a set by Stampin' Up called "Wonderful Words". The edges of the white CS are brushed with gold ink and mounted on a piece of black CS. I made the flower myself and added a black brad to the center. It is adhered with a dimensional.

Inside of card. I stamped a swirly in gold at the corner on white CS. Added a piece of old music brushing the edge with the gold ink. Adhered it to the white CS. Then added the red dotted ribbon from Michaels. I cut out the birdcage, which was purchased at Michaels. Added it to the card with a dimensional, and drew the line so it would appear to be hanging.
Thanks for looking.

I apologize, somehow my cards are in reverse order.
One day I'll figure out this blogging thing.
The owl , elephant and giraffe are all double stamped and adhered with dimensionals for a 3-D effect. The owl and elephant are attached to the pop up part. The sentiment is from "Making Memories".
Another pop up card, kids birthday. The dimensions are again 4 1/2" x 4 1/4". The CS is "American Crafts Patterned Paper, Metropolitan". Again I cut two pieces from this. That way it hides the pop up part on the inside of the card. The flower is I think from K&Company.
I love these flowers. I used a "Stampin' Up" set called, "Animal Stories". I stamped the animals twice, once on colored CS and then on white. I attached the two pieces with dimensionals. The butterflies were some I had laying around. The sentiment another sticker set.
This is the inside of the Celebrate card.
Yep, it's a pop up card. I love these cards.
I took a second sheet of white CS cut to the same dimensions as the front piece.
The best place to see how to make a pop up card is on Splitcoast Stampers. I then adhered a present glittery sticker to the pop tab with a dimensional. The word Happy is from K & Company. Thanks for looking!
Just made this one. The card measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/4". The paper is from "Me & My Big ideas pack.
The swirl is from EK success stickers. Celebrate is also a sticker. On the white CS I used the Apron Lace border punch from Fiskars. Some ribbon I found at Michaels. This card was cased from one of the blogs I visited this morning, I can't remember which one, but Thank you. Great idea.

I just visited the neatest blog.
This site has been up for almost one year, so in celebration she is giving away
blog candy.
Check out her blog at: www.craftyhazelnut.blogspot.com

As of September first I will no longer be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. SU! Is a great company but cost wise I cannot afford the minimum...
