Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop 2017

 
I planned ahead this time, and ordered this just released set from Art Impressions especially for today's hop :o)   These made a huge splash at CHA, I have lots of photos to share, and a video at the end of my post shows how they're assembled.  This is Oldie PopCard (Sku #4859) one of the new Ai Pop Cards - a stamp set that comes with all of the coordinating dies to create a 3D card.
Here's what the outside looks like... since the main image is on the inside of the card, I wanted to be able to see her when the card is closed, so I used the Window Deco Die stamps and the Window Die, along with a couple of coffee cup dies:
And when the card is opened... the 3D coffee drinker pops up!  I really love the curlers, the slippers and the bottle that she's using to spike her coffee :o)
Here are all the different stamps that I've coloured with Copic markers, and cut out with their matching dies.  You also need to get the PopCard Template die (Sku #4862) that you see there on the left (this comes separately but works with any of the six PopCards:
The dies cut the slits right into each piece.  You fold up the two sides on the template, and then thread each of the pieces onto it like this:
Here's the sideview once all the pieces are threaded on; see the little arrows left pointing out of the last piece?  When the card is closed, they lay flat, but when you open the card, the two arrows kick up her front leg.  I ran a strip of adhesive down the center of the template, and glued it down to the card:
After making a couple of quick cuts to my card base, and adding a little pull strip, it was done!  Here is a shot to show you how perfectly flat the card is when shut:
There are six new PopCards available - check with your local stamp store!
Here's a video from Kate at Art Impressions, showing how the PopCards are assembled:
