New Pop it Ups Release - Spiral Circle Pull Card

Hi all! Today Karen Burniston shared the second half of her Pop it Ups Summer release. Two of my favorite dies from this collection have to be the Clock and Gears and the Spiral Circle Pull Card. When combined, these dies are absolutely jaw-dropping!

The clock face is one of the coolest dies I've ever seen. The die even cuts the numbers out! To give the clock a vintage look, I stamped the face of it with Tim Holtz's Crackle stamp, and added lots of Brushed Corduroy Distress ink to the edges.

Here is the card in its open position. Amazing, right?! It's hard to see in the pic, but there is an accessory die that cuts a spiral that you attach to the back of the card that unfurls when you open the card. You can attach anything to the spiral, making it look like it's floating or flying. So cool!

The gears were all cut from thin chipboard and given my Faux Tarnished Silver technique. I am totally in love with these gears! They are sized perfectly for cards and tags and I know I will be using them a lot.

I dove deep down into my stash to find the perfect paper for this card. It's from Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante collection and I'm pretty sure it's probably collectable by now, but I couldn't resist using it! I also remembered I had one of the coordinating stamp sets, so I used the little butterfly stamp to add even more movement to the card.

Static pictures can only show so much. There's nothing like a quick little Vine video to really show off these motion cards. One of my favorite features of the Spiral Circle Pull Card die is the little tabs that keep the card closed. I used the ejection holes from the large gear as faux brads on them. I think it just adds to the industrial look of the card.

All the new dies will be available in mid-July. The other supplies I used can be found at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Remember to use my coupon code - stamptramp - to save 10% on your order!
