Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #66 Furry Friends Dog Pop-up Pivot Card [03.01.2018]

Hi! Today's card for Cardz 4 Galz is Furry Friends! My favorite furry friends are dogs, so I made a card with a few puppers in it! Let's bark and check it out!

Supply List:
Lawn Fawn Pivot PopUp Die
Lawn Fawn Critters at the Dog Park stamp set and dies
Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Collection Pack
Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Meadow Collection Pack
Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Detail embossing powder
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Versafine Black Onyx ink
Tonic Tangerine machine
Copic markers
Wink of Stella glitter pen
Tim Holtz distress ink

I stamped out the furry friends with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I removed the cardstock I stamped the images on, colored them with copic markers, then re-inserted the cardstock into the Stamp Platform. I re-inked the images with Versafine Black Onyx ink and stamped the images again, exactly over the colored images! This makes the black lines of the images pop, plus the Versafine ink (which isn't super copic-friendly) is tacky enough that embossing powder can adhere to it. I sprinkled on some Clear Detail embossing powder, and heat set it. Then, I die cut out the images using my Tonic Tangerine machine. I also die cut Lawn Fawn's new Pivot Popup die and assembled the pivot popup mechanism (pretty easy!).

Here is a close up of one of the pups, with his sweet bow tie. I also die cut some tress and clouds from the Pivot Popup die and placed them on the popup piece as well.

And, more dogs on the other side of the popup. This sweet pup on the right is launching off the edge of the popup! So fun!

Here is the fire hydrant. I added on some Wink of Stella and Tonic Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to it. So sparkly in real life!

And, here is the pup on the base of the card. She is enjoying her treats!

I am also entering this card into Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Try a New Technique. My new technique was the Pivot Popup ... I have been coveting this die since I saw it debut at Creativation, and now I finally have it! It is really fun to use, and really makes a fun interactive addition to a card! I can't wait to see what you create and post in the Cardz 4 Galz Furry Friends challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
