Twist and Pop Chickens Pop Up Card

I found my new favourite pop-up card! Once you know how to build this one, it’s super easy and doesn’t take very much time at all! I had a look at a few tutorials for this particular card and found this to be the easiest way with the least amount of measuring and fuss.

When I first had a look at the Stampin’ Up Sale-a-bration brouchure for 2017, I squealed with delight when I saw the funny little chickens in the Hey Chick stamp set! I think they are so fun and silly and I fell in love with them immediately. Believe it or not, this card is the first time for me to use this stamp set.

Here’s the simple card front:

The chicken image is stamped with Jet Black Stazon ink and coloured with Blender Pens using Smoky Slate ink, Crushed Curry ink and Watermelon Wonder.

Here’s what happens when you open it:

You can see that I did more of those hand-drawn lines with my Project Life pen on each of the inside panels of this card. I used some Tangerine Tango ink with my Blender Pen for the crazy chicken’s “hair” and tail feathers, some Crumb Cake ink for the body of the crazy chicken and the body of the looking back chicken. Smoky Slate ink accents the pecking chicken and the cracking egg images.

Twist and Pop inside by Amy Jasper www.inkingonthefly.comThe best part about this pop-up card is that it is super easy to make. I started with preparing the piece for my inner mechanics, Thick Whisper White cardstock measuring 3-1/2″ x 8″. This piece was scored lengthwise at 1-3/4″, then I used my Simply Scored tool to make a notch marking at 2-1/4″ on the long edge of the cardstock. I did four of these marks, then used them as guidelines to score the X needed for these magical inner workings of this pop-up card. The So Saffron panel piece measures 3-1/2″ x 10″ and is scored at 2-1/2″, 5″, and 7-1/2″, then folded in an accordian fold style.

It’s not easy to explain this fun card in writing. Are you confused, yet? LOL! I thought you might be, so I made a video! Check it out on my youtube channel by clicking here.

Happy Birthday Pop-up

This week’s As You See It Challenge is an assortment challenge! Check it out!

131I wanted to use the Party Pop-Up thinlits this week. I love how easy it is to make a cool pop-up card with these! So fun!

Birthday Pop-Up Card by Amy Jasper www.inkingonthefly.comThe outside of the card is simple layering, but I used a partial die cutting technique to only cut part of the Happy Birthday die for the front of the card. Sorry, I don’t have a tutorial for you (yet). The striped washi tape at the bottom of this card is from the “This is the Life” Project Life Accessory pack. It almost looks like the paper has been cut out!

I used Lost Lagoon cardstock from the 2014-16 In Colors, which are retiring at the end of May! (Oh, how I will mourn for the loss of Blackberry Bliss!)

Birthday Pop-Up Card by Amy Jasper www.inkingonthefly.comSoft Sky and Basic Black Cardstock along with stars of Gold Glimmer, Gold Foil paper, some Gold Sequins, and a splash of Gold Metallic Thread, adorn the front. I used Archival Black ink with the spatter from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. In fact, this is the ONLY stamping I did on this card.
