Good Morning!
Today sees the start of my last GDT at House-Mouse & Friends..So it's going to be more
of a Squeak today lol instead of an EEEEEEEEEK! 
I've had a Wonderful time..Met some new bloggers  friends..  


The Challenge ....'Pop it Up' [You must have at least one element that  is popped up}

I chose one of the boxes I've been seeing out here in Blogland!
Balloons made with a punch suspended with Acetate...Believe it or not I stamped my little meece fed it through my Cameo, to make a blank off cut  of the shape ..Then...stamped my image on the 'cut shape' must admit my stamp now sports a pointed top lol..I did think that if the image was copied and sent through the  Cameo wouldn't be a true stamp! Would it... {Hope that makes sense} Coloured with Copics....Papers from stash..

Chrissy, This came out perfect. Very interesting how you made your little mousey friend. A job very well done as has been the case with all of your fantastic entries as a GDT member. We will certainly miss your special touches but hopefully we will get to see your cards as a weekly participant in our challenge. It has been a lot of fun. Thank you so much.

Hi Chrissy, what a sweet card in a box. I am going to attempt this later today...have had the stuff sitting on my table for a week. This is darling and what a great grad card it makes. Love the floating balloons, such fun. Has been fun having you designing along side us for the past couple of months, and we have enjoyed your House Mouse creations.


Pia S said...

This is such a fun design for a graduate! Love how you popped those different colored balloons, and the image is so sweet!

Lauren Hatwell said...

This is really smashing Chrissy. I love the way you've used acetate to make the balloons look like they are floating. Clever! Lx

Becky said...

Gorgeous card Chrissy :-) I never made one of these pop up cards but think I might just have to have a go now ! I also haven't used my Cameo to do a cut out for a stamp either ,,, another thing to add to my 'must have a go' list :) The whole design of this is just brilliant !!

I am sorry that your GD spot has come to an end but we'll be looking forward to seeing your entries into the challenges :-)
Lols x x x

I love this design! Great job on this card! I've been wanting to try one of these...maybe today with your wonderful inspiration, I'll get the courage to try...Hope you have a great day!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my gosh! What a cute idea for the card in the box. I just learned how to make one and made one Monday night. Like you said, they have been all over Blogland and I've admired them so. So far I've only seen them with bunches of candles and/or balloons or flowers, so seeing an image with other stuff added into really opens doors in my brain. Thanks for sharing your lovely creation!!!
