I've created two different projects for today's blog hop. The directions for both of these projects can be found on the new 3D and Fun Folds CD from Technique Junkies.

My first project is this fun Standing Pop-Up Card. I've used the fabulous Birthday Rubz from Classy Cards 'n Such on the front of this card. This sentiment is perfect for what you're about to see.....



Watch what happens when you press on the card:


Isn't that fun?? The center pops up to reveal this adorable Mouse Carrying Cake image from Classy Cards 'n Such. I stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers. After looking at all those candles on that cake, I just had to use that sentiment. They were just meant to go together, don't you think? :-)


For my second project, I created a Flap Card. I got this sweet Mouse with Sunflower stamp from Classy Cards 'n Such and colored it with Copic markers. The butterfly is paper pieced with the same pretty blue paper that you see in the background.


This is what you see when you lift up the stamped image. I've used one of the sentiments from the same Birthday Rubz sheet from Classy Cards 'n Such and applied it directly to the designer paper.


This is the inside of the Flap Card. I've applied the matching Birthday Rubz sentiment in here for a finished card. This is ready to be signed and given to one lucky birthday gal. :-)


I hope you've enjoyed the projects I created for you. The stamps and the birthday sentiments can be found at Classy Cards 'n Such along with much, much more.

Your next stop on the hop is Chris Dickinson's blog, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:


Have a wonderful day! Enjoy the hop and come on back tomorrow for a new hop with a different company. :-)
