This Saturday's class at Scrapp'n Savvy will feature three cards using pop-up dies with an added technique or twist. As a bonus, students will also get to make a bonus card from my CHA class featuring the next release of Pop 'n Cuts dies - the Journey collection, which will be available in stores this June.
First up, let's celebrate this season of Love using the Bigz Raising Platform die with the added technique of using the platform to raise up attached items. In this case, I've used the Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes die, which he was nice enough to design as a near-spiral just for me! (Or so I tell myself) The papers ar We R Memory Keepers "Crazy for You".
The other projects will use Pop 'n Cuts dies. For this project, the Pop 'n Cuts Star Insert is used three times to create a cascade of pop-up stars. This also converts the Star Insert, which would typically be made as a vertical card, into a horizontal card.
The last "amped up" card uses the Frame Pop 'n Cuts insert with a version of the Floating Floor technique behind the frame. By using a floating floor, I was able to move the Flagpoles away from the frame for more dimension.
Other dies used on this card are the Pop 'n Cuts Base Die, Hello Sizzlits Set (vine), the Heart & Wing Movers & Shapers set (hearts) and the Label & Ribbon Movers & Shapers set (banners). For the front of the card I used Eileen Hull's Hydrangea & Borders die. Papers and cardstock are all Bazzill.
For the Bonus Card, students will get a taste of dies to come!
Dies used on this card (the dies will be available in June) are the NEW 5x5 Square Pop 'n Cuts Base Die, the Funky Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert, the Funky Label Framelits and the Heart & Flower Movers & Shapers set. I've also used the Eileen Hull Heart Flowers die (available now).
