Just Add Ink #343 Pop Up or Interactive Blog Hop

Hey Everyone

Welcome to our first challenge of 2017 at Just Add Ink.  We’re starting off 2017 with a blog hop.  Our challenge for you is to:

Just Add Pop Up or Interactive


This is probably the first pop up card I’ve made in over a year.  Challenges like this are great for me, they really get me creating out of my comfort zone.  This card with it’s neutral colours could be for either a male or female, but I probably had a man in mind when I made it.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Balloon Adventures.  Don’t you love this big sentiment?  I am loving the size of this sentiment and I love it combined with these hot air balloons.


I’ve used Balloon Pop Up Thinlits Die for the centre of my card.  Instead of the balloons that the thinlits cut, I added hot air balloons and clouds from Stampin’ Up!s Lift Me Up. I had to trim down the balloons the thinlit cut just a tad so you wouldn’t see the outline behind my hot air balloon. I had some pieces of Urban Underground DSP sitting on my desk when I made this card, so after trimming them to fit, I added them to my card.


The next hop along the way is the uber talent Rochelle Blok.  Rochelle creates the most gorgeous projects – click on her name or the button below to continue hopping.


Thanks for stopping by.
