Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop Entry









Hi, everyone, this is my first PTI blog hop! The challenge for this month is to create a birthday card.























































Here is my entry. It is a Surprise Pop-Up Card. The instructions may be found HERE. I used two of my fave PTI sets, Pond Life and It's a Celebration, both designed by Candice Aguilar. It also uses two of my favorite PTI colors, Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet. I stamped the pennants from It's a Celebration on Sweet Blush CS in Sweet Blush Palette Ink. I stamped the cupcake image on PTI's Stamper's Select White, added stickles to the dots, then I masked it and stamped the turtle shell in Certainly Celery (SU) and the detail in Ripe Avocado (PTI). Then I overstamped the detail in Versamark, easy to do with clear stamps and embossed with a mix of clear and hologram highlights EP for some sparkle. I stamped the head, feet, and tail in Ripe Avocado, stamped, embossed and cut out the party hat and popped it up. I added a googly eye to Mr. Turtle. Ribbon is PTI.



"Inching by just to say (hi)" is from Pond Life Sentiments.















When you pull the tag, the front panel opens to show the inside, in this case, "Happy belated Birthday", also from Pond Life Sents. This is very appropriate for me, since I usually remember the birthday of a person 500 miles away on the actual day of his/her birthday! I am the world's worst at getting cards in the mail on time!





I hope you like my blog hop creation; can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with! Thanks for looking!
