Seaside Shore Fish Mouth Pop-Up

My team member Carol M-C made a card  similare to this from a video she saw on YouTube. I found it and I cased the idea for the fish inside from the video and then created my card front.

I love how the rope goes through the anchor.  Secret:  Don't ink the top half of the anchor loop. Just draw it in with a marker. Voila!

Pretty Kitty – Pull Down Card

I was at a craft convention and saw a card with a pull down window ( I don't know what else to call it) and it had a pile of kittens.  This is my version of that card using Stampin' Up! products.

Pretty Kitty Jeannine Tarrio Stampin' Up!

This is the card with the wiindow pulled down:

Pretty Kitty Pull Down Jeannine Tarrio

I used Stampin' Up!'s Verticle Greetings stamp set and Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Kitty stamp set.   My window piece is about 2 1/2" x 5" scored at 1/4" on three sides and a 1/2 circle punched at the bottom.  You can make the window holder and pull down any size by working your dimensions out from the opening.  You just need to allow about a 3/8" border around the opening  on 3 sides and score. On the bottom end leave 1/2" and punch 1/2 a circle. Then allowing a 1/4" tab for adhering with Tear Tape, cut cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

I also stamped a kitty and saying on the inside.

Celebrate Birthdays or the 4th of July?

This was one of the cards I created for my June clubs.  I combined Stampin' Up!'s Jar of Love with Birthday Banners to create my card.

Jar of Love, Jeannine Tarrio, Stampin' Up!


It is a shaker card and is so much fun to make. I used the brights sequins and the Confetti Punch for the inside of the jar. Also, window sheets and Stampin' Up!'s new Foam Adhesive Strips.
