About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Best thing ever: Pop-up cards!!

Okay, maybe not the best thing ever (Braum’s limeade on a hot summer day, my Texas friends?), but still pretty stinking cool. See, this is the outside:

And this is the inside:

Neat-o, right?

The best part is that they’re simple to make. Stampin’ Up!’s Pop ‘N Cuts dies make a card base in one step and the pop-up insert in the next step. They’re so easy but look really hard and make the giver look amazingly talented.

I chose the colors and papers so I could play along with the Fab Friday color challenge.

I’m in love with Sweater Weather paper, as you know. I even bought the digital download for My Digital Studio so I can use it in my hybrid scrapbook pages. Look at the close-up of this paper.

The pattern looks like a knit sweater; I adore it.

The “twigs” behind the leaves on the pop-up are from the yummy Burlap ribbon in the Holiday catalog. I pulled it apart strand by strand, then glued the strands onto the pop-up using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then I added the leaves, using Dimensionals between each layer.

The sentiment and the other stamps on the card are from the Best of Autumn stamp set. Stampin’ Up! has released a Best-of stamp set each month in 2013 to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary. If you buy six of the sets, you can send in a card with your proofs of purchase and receive a seventh set for free.

So these pop-up cards have a big wow factor but not a big work factor. I love tools that make things so easy! You can purchase any of the items used to make the card in my Stampin’ Up! store, 24/7.

There are so many fabulous things on this card that I don’t even know what to mention! I love it! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday! And hmmm…this Texas girl hasn’t tried the Limeade at Braum’s, but the one at Sonic is pretty darn good.

Love that pop up, it does look very impressive! The “twigs” are a great touch! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Thanks, ladies!
Amy, my mom and stepdad like the Sonic limeade the best, but I like my limeades TART, and Braum’s delivers on that. :) That and the chocolate almond ice cream, but I can’t eat dairy right now, so I try not to think about that.
