Pop it Ups Winter Garden Bench Card with Floating Floor

I'm back from CHA and unfortunately have been sick, which is why you didn't see a nice blog recap post from me with the two photos I took while at CHA. (OK, I took more than two photos, but barely - we were so busy!)

Today I felt a little better so I decided to make a card. I'd been wanting to style the Garden Bench in a winter theme to use the little snow bank that comes with it and the All Seasons Tree with the included snowflake. Here's what I came up with:

Winter_Bench_Pop_it_Ups_Open_Angle

I added a Floating Floor to the base of the card to allow for the little Penguin stamp to pop-up as well. If you're already familiar with how a Floating Floor works, then here's a template to use with the Garden Bench. If not, you'll have to wait until I have a chance to make a video. (Sorry . . . cough. . . cough. . . wheeze . . . cough)

Download Garden_Bench_Floating_Floor

I didn't give you any side edges to the template so you can make it match the width of whatever card you're using. With Pop it Ups dies YOU choose the card size and YOU choose the pop-up placement, so when using this template, cut your Floating Floor piece wider than your card, cut out the leg slots, slide the floor onto the card, mark the edges of your card, and trim away the excess.

Winter_Bench_Pop_it_Ups_Floor

The above photo will show how the Floor attaches to the card - use a strong adhesive on the fold-down tabs and glue them to the back wall and the two bench legs. Make sure you've cut slots in the floor for any pop-ups before adhering the floor to the card. Use "L" supports through the slots. I used the Slot die from the Lucy Label Pop it Ups die to cut a perfect slot for my penguin.

Winter_Bench_Pop_it_Ups_Front

I was able to bring home the one and only set of my new Embossing Folders from the show. There are four folders and they are in transit expected to hit the warehouse by the end of the month. This is #KB102 Trendy Tiles 1. I used it for the backing card as it looks good both embossed and debossed. For the front of the card I kept it simple, with just a Lucy Label (slot dies used again to make a ribbon slide) and a few snowflakes from the All Seasons Tree die, plus a colored and fussy-cut stamped image by Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs.

Winter_Bench_Pop_it_Ups_Open

Inside the card are more Stacey Yacula images, including the penguin, fox and bird. I attached the fox's tail to the bench. Warm Winter Wishes is computer-generated and then cut out with a Lucy Label. The snow bank that comes with the Garden Bench was used along the front of the floor and along the back wall.

Winter_Bench_Pop_it_Ups_Details

 

I went stash diving to style the bench and the tree. On the white bench I rubbed in some metallic rub-ons with my finger to make it pewter. Then I dumped some dimensional embossing powder over the bench and heat set it. For additional texture I used a Marvy Snow Pen, which you let dry and then heat to make it puff up. I cut two trees - one from corrugated cardboard and one from real wood. Both were stained brown and then embellished with the Snow Pen. I tucked my stamped bird on a branch and added snowflakes from the All Seasons Tree (embellished with glitter dots) throughout the scene.

Here are some shopping links for the main items used in my card. The Pop it Ups dies are shipping now to stores throughout the world, so check with your local store to see if they have been ordered. Otherwise, if you do not have a local store (oh how sad!) then you can buy through the links below.

*NEW* Pop 'n Cuts House - Video Tutorial

Today I'm blogging on the Sizzix blog with a video tutorial for using some of the new dies from the Sizzix Snippets collection.

Snippets is shipping to stores now, so keep a look out. If she hasn't sold out, Simple Pleasures had some of the House Inserts last weekend when I was there teaching. 

House_Thankful_Pin

Click below to watch the video tutorial for making this card. You'll learn how to cut and fold the House insert, how to use the companion House Thinlits set, including the optional embossing step, how to use the Stitched Framelits to create a raised stitch, creating an easy Floating Floor to allow animation of other objects (in this case, two leaves cut and embossed from Shimmer Sheetz) and see the new Trellis and Swirls embossing folders in action. Whew! That's a lot for 12 minutes!

 

Here is a printable version of the folds for the Floating Floor for the House insert. Note - you can add pop-ups anywhere on the Floating Floor by cutting slits and adding "L" supports. Watch last month's video for a visual of using a Floating Floor this way: Ribbon Tree Floating Floor Video

I made this project as part of my September Designer Challenge. This month I challenged ten fabulous designer/bloggers to use Karen Burniston dies in a project for an upcoming holiday. You will see amazing creations from Shelly Hickox, Raquel Mason, Kelly Booth, Helen Cryer, Gretchen Schmidt, Frances Byrne, Fran Sabad, Donna Wright, Caz Counsell and Anna-Karin Evaldsson. All of the links are on the Sizzix blog here: Karen Burniston September Designer Challenge: Holiday Projects 

Here are some shopping supply links for the products used in my project. As of now, the four Snippets dies are not in stock yet at Scrapbook.com so the links will go to the product pages at Sizzix. As soon as they become available I will update the links.

Hopefully with all the wonderful Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas ideas you'll be inspired to put a little "pop" into your holiday cards!

Happy Crafting!

Halloween Flying Easel Card w/*FREE* Ghost Template

I love it when I post a card idea and it inspires other people to try it. In the case of the Flying Easel Card, I posted a photo about a month ago of the Pop 'n Cuts Butterfly Flying Easel Card that I designed for UStamp with Dawn & Friends' Cards with Cool Moves event. That card has a video and PDF tutorial, but they are only available to the registered students of the CWCM event.

Not that you really need a video, mind you. It's one of those cards that you can just look at and figure out, which is what Frances Byrne did when she posted her beautiful Merry Christmas Flying Easel Card complete with flying Christmas tree.

This week Shelly Hickox posted a gorgeous Birdcage Flying Easel Card using her signature Faux Finishes. 

So now, in one of those "inspiration full circle" sort of things, my friends have inspired me to make another Flying Easel card, this time with a basic picture tutorial and a *FREE* template for the ghosts.

This card is heavily influenced by Shelly's. Her Faux Finishes are so beautiful that I took a baby step in that direction by embossing my hanging ghosts and frame to give them more weight and shine. Shelly also mentioned wanting to make a FEC that also pulled up a fence, and we discussed how that might be done using a combination of mechanisms. In my case, I took the lazy way out and just glued a fence behind the bottom section of the frame. The mechanism combo idea has great promise, though, and I'm hoping Shelly attempts it!

Flying_Easel_Ghost_Pin

Both Shelly and Frances cut the inner (smaller) shape out of the Pop 'n Cuts Base and then glued a full frame around the opening, using adhesive only on the bottom half of the frame. This is a great way to make the card and for a photo tutorial of that method, check out Shelly's post

Mine is a little different because I also cut a half-outer-frame from the Pop 'n Cuts card base. This gives me a double layer for the upper frame so I can sandwich the fishing line between the two layers. Either way works and the card will look essentially the same regardless of the method you choose.

If you'd like to make my version of the card, first you'll need the template for the ghost. Click the link below to open the file and then you will be able to save it to your computer. (Personal use only!)

  Download Hanging_Ghost_Template

 Here's how I made my card:01_FEC

To make the outer frame, I used the largest two Wavy Labels Framelits. I used strips of Washi Tape over a piece of white cardstock until I got an area large enough to cut the frame.

02_FEC

For my ghosts, I cut them from white cardstock and then pounced them with Versamark ink, covered them with white embossing powder and then heat set. I repeated this three times to get an enamel look. To assemble the Ghosts, I started by sliding #2 into #1, getting the bottom notch in the slot, and then folding down the back of #2 to get it through the slot. Unfold on the other side to lock the pieces together.

03_FEC 

The third Ghost goes in the same way - start by getting the bottom notch through BOTH of the previous ghosts until the bottom notch is in. Then fold down the back half and slide it through the slot, unfolding on the other side and locking the pieces together. You'll now have a triple ghost that will open and close.  

04_FEC

The solid Ghost can be used as an Easel Stopper. I flipped the ghost to the back, added strips of black Washi Tape over the eye holes, and then on the front I stuck small googly eyes to the sticky side of the tape. To make sure the eyes stayed permanently, I also added Glossy Accents around them.

05_FEC

To make the card, I first die cut a Pop 'n Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edge using no Pop 'n Cuts insert, so I had a solid card. I cut the oval from the front of the card.

06_FEC

For the outer frame, I only wanted to cut the upper half, so I stopped my upper cutting pad at the halfway point of the Framelit and then rolled it through. 

07_FEC

Now fold the front of the card as shown. The outer frame will stand up, providing a place to attach the fishing line that hangs the triple ghost. I also glued a die cut fence to the back side of the frame.

08_FEC

Then I glued the Washi Tape frame, which I had also pounced with Versamark Ink and embossed with clear powder until it was enameled, to the front of the card. I also added the solid ghost, on pop-dots, to the interior of the card in a position where the googly eyes would be viewable through the holes of the triple ghost when the card was closed.

Flying_Easel_Ghost_SideView

You can see how the card operates in this side view. Notice the solid ghost elevated on pop-dots so the easel has a stopper.

Flying_Easel_Ghost_TopView

The moon is just a 2" circle with a black stamped bat and some ink brushed around the edges. I attached it behind the upper part of the frame so it will raise and lower with the card. The greeting is from a Stampin' Up! stamp set called Best of Halloween. A lovely gift from my friend Fran Sabad. 

Flying_Easel_Ghost_Flat

I cut another Pop 'n Cuts Card Base from black cardstock and added it to the back of the card to make it sturdier. I attached it lower than the other card so I would have room for some little photo turns to keep the card closed. It lays pretty flat without a closure, but it's nice for getting in and out of the envelope without an accidental reveal.

Flying_Easel_Ghost_Closeup

You can see in this close-up how I attached the fishing line. I used a crimp bead over the line to seal the loop and then just attached the ends between the two upper frames.

*FREE* Uncle Sam Template for Stampin' Up! Dress form

Summer is right around the corner and I know the Stampin' Up! demonstrators are busy preparing for the new Annual Catalog and the treasures within. As you are planning your classes and workshops I thought I would provide another masculine option for the exclusive Stampin' Up! Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts insert and Pop 'n Cuts Card Base.

Uncle Sam Pop n Cuts Inside Front

This Uncle Sam outfit will obviously be great for 4th of July cards, but could also be used for any type of Patriotic card, especially for the troops.

Uncle Sam Pop n Cuts Close Up

I'm giving you some options for this *FREE* template. You can download it as a PDF for hand-cutting, like I offered for the Tuxedo Template, or you can also download an SVG file with the pieces ready for your e-cutter. If you have an eclips and eCal software, you can download the SCAL3 file, where I have separated the four colors onto separate tabs and changed the shoulder lines to scores. 

PDF for hand-cutting: Download Uncle Sam Template

SVG file for e-cutting:  Download Uncle Sam SVG (instead of clicking this, try hovering over it and right clicking and seeing if you have a "Save" option - not sure what Typepad thinks this file is!)

SCAL3 file for eclips/eCal users:  Download Uncle Sam eCal

Now you can definitely use Uncle Sam on his own with the Dress up Framelits Dress form for a card front or on a layout, etc. In that case, you can choose to put his hat higher and/or have him hold the hat in his hand. Have fun with it!

However, if you want Uncle Sam to fit, with hat, inside a Pop 'n Cuts card, here's the best way to ensure it:

Uncle Sam Steps 1 2 

STEP 1: Hand or e-cut all the pieces from the appropriate colors and assemble these three layered parts:

Upper Body - white shirt, followed by blue vest, followed by coat sides. Tuck white shirt sleeves under the coat sleeves and secure. Add the blue lapels. Add the bow tie, making sure it is low enough to leave room for the hat. Draw black buttons on the shirt and white buttons on the vest.

Pants - white pants followed by red stripes.

Hat - white hat, followed by red strips, followed by blue hat band, then white stars and white hat brim. Use a craft knife to cut a slit below the hat brim as shown.

STEP 2: Slide the hat over the body and secure on the back with glue or a piece of tape.

Uncle Sam Steps 3 4

STEP 3: Turn the piece back to the front.

STEP 4: Die cut and fold a Pop 'n Cuts Dress form. Trim off the shoulders of the pop-up dress form.

  Uncle Sam Step 5

STEP 5: Add the pants to the bottom of the dress form, just slightly above the ground so they won't bunch in the fold. Add a strip of Sticky Strip to the front of the dress form. Lay the upper body piece flat in front of the dress form and arrange it so the hat is within the card. Center it in front of the dress form.

Uncle Sam Step 6

STEP 6: Peel up the liner on the tape and carefully bring the top of the card down to stick the dress form to the back of the upper body. Trim any part of the top of the dress form that still shows on the front of the card.

Uncle Sam Pop n Cuts Inside Side

For my card, I used a Whisper White backing card and embellished the card's interior with Polka Dot Parade DSP and some stamped images from the retired Independence Day stamp set. I also used the Adorning Accents Edgelits to make some decorative borders.

  Uncle Sam Pop n Cuts Details

I had already added the backing card before deciding that I wanted my firecrackers to be on pop-up platforms. This meant that I couldn't do a simple parallel-slits box cut on the "shelf" area of the Pop 'n Cuts, so I made simple box pop-ups from scrap cardstock instead. 

Uncle Sam Pop n Cuts Closed

The front of the card is a very simple flag-inspired design using the leftover DSP and another stamped star banner.

Demonstrators, you may distribute this template to your customers and use it for samples, workshops and classes as long as you are using it as a sales tool to promote the Pop 'n Cuts and Dress Up Framelits dies. Please give credit for the source as karenburniston.com. Thanks!

Pop-up 2Torial: Stampin' Up! Pop 'n Cuts Floating Floor *FREE* template + video


PU2logo

If ever a Pop 'n Cuts insert was calling out for a Floating Floor template it is the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts insert. (Floating Floor templates for the Sizzix Base Die and the Frame inserts can be found by scrolling through the category of "Free Templates")

With all of Stampin' Up!'s stamp sets there are endless combinations of cute items waiting to be animated with a Floating Floor!

Since I didn't want to hide any of the dress form to support the floor, I drafted a template to build the floor underneath the Pop 'n Cuts piece.

Learn how to use the template in this video:

 

You can download a copy of the template here:

Download SU Floating Floor Template

Demonstrators, the answer is YES! You may use this template for classes (leave my logo on it, please) and you may embed my template and video on your own sites. Did I mention that I'm here for you? I'm here for you! *grin*

PRINTING NOTE - with PDFs, your printer may default to "shrink to fit" or something similar. When you send the file to print, just take a look-see and make sure it says "no shrinking" or "no page scaling" or "scale=100%" or "print full size" - however your printer likes to say it. If you're printing templates for a class, then you print ONE first, take out your ruler, check that the width is 4.25", and then print the rest. 

Here are some photos of the Queen of Hearts card that I make in the video. 

01 Stampin Up Queen of Hearts Card 

For the front of my Queen of Hearts card, I used the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions folder, some bakers twine and a single stamped heart.

03 Stampin Up Queen of Hearts Card Details

04 Stampin Up Queen of Hearts Card Details2

Inside the card I've fashioned a Queen of Hearts dress from the Dress Up Framelits and used stamped & colored hearts popping up throughout the floating floor. 

I used all Stampin' Up! products on my card.

This is going to be a great way to use the Stampin' Up! Pop 'n Cuts in a more masculine way. Today I made a Valentine's Day Card for my husband, John.

01 My Guy Closed
Stampin' Up! #130099 Card Base, Pop 'n Cuts

For the front of the card, I did something different with the Card Base. Instead of using the built-in closure, I folded my card before die cutting and used the decorative-edged end to cut through both layers, resulting in an A2-sized card with matching decorative edges. (Note: this technique works for making solid and/or backing cards, but not for the pop-up part of the card, which requires the staggered folds created by the insert. For the pop-up part you need a long flat strip with no folds.)

02 My Guy Open
Stampin' Up! Item #130100 Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts Insert and Free Tuxedo Template from karenburniston.com

 

This card would also make a great Father's Day card, or Anniversary Card, or Groom's card, or Prom card, or Mardi Gras Ball card (add a Mardi Gras mask and prepare to be awesome!)

I actually took some photos as I was making this card (yay me for thinking ahead!) so I'll share those steps:

 

04 Wall Texture
Trim the ends of the pop-up card and use Post-it notes to mask

For die cutting, I first cut a strip of cardstock to 4" wide. This is a little trick I often use if I'm starting with 12x12 cardstock. By using 4" strips, I can get three Pop 'n Cuts interior cards from one sheet of cardstock. It only works, though, if you're planning on trimming the ends shorter and using a "full" backing card. With a 4" piece, you won't be able to cut a working closure, so plan on trimming at least an inch from both ends. This trick also gives you a little interior side border, so it looks great when you're using contrasting colors/patterns for your pop-up/backing cards.

Next, use Post-it notes to mask off the table and the floor. I also masked off just the top of the dress form. No need to mask the rest of the form because the tuxedo will cover it. To make my wall paneling, I first added strips of thin graphic art tape (office supply store) and then sponged ink and stamped a woodgrain texture. When I peeled up the tape some of the freshly sponged texture peeled up too, but I decided I liked it!

05 Table
Put paper over just the table portion of the die and trim out with scissors 

To change the color of the table I put a piece of DSP over just the table portion of the die and ran it through the Big Shot. I used scissors to isolate and remove the two halves of the table and then glued them in place. 

06 Floor Texture
Re-use the same masks for the floor

Post-it notes make such great masks and can be used over and over. I masked off the floor and stamped a spotted texture.

 

07 Backing Card
A tape runner works great to add PNC insert to backing card

My general method for adding a Pop 'n Cuts insert card to a backing card is to coat one half with tape runner, then line it up in the fold and press to one half of the backing card. Then I flip the card over, add adhesive to the other half of the pop-up card, and press it to the other half of the backing card.

Next I constructed a Tuxedo using the template and glued it to the front of the dress form. Since this is a Valentines Day card, I added a heart button as a boutonniere, but on the right side, to be a rebel! (Actually, I didn't know it was supposed to go on the left. I discovered that just now when I was Googling how to spell boutonniere!)

 

08 Tuxedo
If accuracy is important, move the heart to the left side!

Floating Floor 2.0 Template to fit Pop 'n Cuts Frame

Yesterday I was blogging on the Sizzix blog, which is a Blogger blog. (It's fun to say "Blogger blog") As I looked for the "insert file" button to add the PDF for the Floating Floor 2.0 template, I discovered that there was no such button. A Google search told me that to upload PDF files on Blogger blogs (go ahead and say it a few times, I'll wait) that you must first upload it elsewhere, like to Google Drive, and then link it in. 

So I did.

And this process has been not-so-easy for some folks, who say they can't download the template.

If you're one of those poor unfortunate souls for whom the template would not download on the Sizzix blog, you can get it here instead:

This template fits the Pop 'n Cuts Frame Insert to add a floating floor behind the frame that can be used to animate flagpoles or a multitude of small pop-up items as explained in the first Floating Floor Tutorial. You can see more photos of this project and a supply list on the Sizzix Blog here.

Pop-up 2Torial: Pop 'n Cuts with Floating Floor

PU2logo

When I taught in the Chicago area this summer I was thrilled to be presented with a "Yo-Yo Original" from my friend Yolanda Moran. She made me this Wonderland card, colored to absolute perfection, and employing a technique for a floating floor that allows pop-ups to be placed anywhere in the floor.

Yo Yo Wonderland Card
I thought her idea of hiding the mechanisms under a floating floor (versus having simple box pop-ups behind each element) was a brilliant idea and I could hardly wait to try this effect with the Circle Label Base Die Pop 'n Cuts.

My initial idea was to make tombstones pop-up for an eerie Halloween card. I went so far as to craft the Zombie Mary Poppins before I decided that the video should probably show a holiday card, so I put Zombie Mary aside.

I wanted to use new Lawn Fawn Fa-La-La papers and was delighted that their Let it Snow clear stamps perfectly matched the trees in one of their papers. With a stroke of genius that I assumed was original, I set out to make some trees pop-up for a lovely winter scene.

It is quite probable, however, that my idea of the trees was really not so much a unique idea as craft Inception, as I now recall Shelly Hickox mentioning something about wanting to make a card with trees popping up all over the place when we were admiring a card by Pete Hughes with trees popping up all over the place. I think Gretchen has also made a card with trees popping up all over the place.

So there ya go. I firmly believe that it's far better to err on the side of too much credit than not enough, so I must thank Shelly and Pete and Gretchen for the craft Inception that led to this card.

Trees Summary

 

Did you watch the video? I completely abandoned the whole "under 3 minutes" thing, huh? Ha!

Looking for the template for the floating floor? Here you go: Download Floating Floor Template

Now one thing you need to check when you print a PDF is whether the print settings say "shrink to fit" or anything disastrously similar. The width of the template should fit the A2-sized backing card just perfectly. (4.25") If the template is too small, then you have to reprint, making sure your print settings say "print full size" or something fantastically similar.

Here are some additional photos of the card from the video:

ALTERNATE CARD:
ZOMBIE MARY POPPINS GIVES 
 CEMETERY TOURS

The lovely thing about making the alternate cards is that I can throw caution to the wind and just play with as many supplies as I want to, thank you very much.

The front of this card features my new Fancy Frame die, turned vertically to house a couple of my favorite old Halloween stamps from my stash. 

01 Cemetery Closed

 

A Karen Foster Pin-up was the perfect thing to hold the ends of the chain and the skeleton key. Initially I had just cut the frames from black cardstock, but they seemed a little boring and dimensionless, so I coated them with black powder and embossed a few times. 

 

02 Cemetery Side

 

The inside of this card thrills me! I had picked up this spooky graveyard paper from Moxxie's last year's Midnight Dreary collection. My plan was to carefully hinge some of the tombstones in the floating floor and then add supports behind them to make them raise and lower. I needed to back the excess hole left by the cut tombstones so I used black cardstock.

 

04 Cemetery Mechanism

 

Check out Zombie Mary Poppins! Mwaaaah haaa haa! Mary is a Lost-Coast Designs stamp that I recently ordered, but for Halloween I felt that she needed a new identity. After rejecting a Frankenstein stamp as too green, and a skull stamp as too white, I settled on this creepy little zombie head. 

I fashioned the spooky tree using a Tim Holtz Twigs On the Edge die and stamping a woodgrain texture on it. The Graveyard Tours sign was clipped from a piece of Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor paper, shaped, inked and hung with jump rings from the flagpole die.

 

03 Cemetery Open

 

Here are the main supplies used on both cards:

 

So there you have it - Yo Yo's Floating Floor adapted to fit Pop 'n Cuts. What will you create?

Happy Crafting!
