DSCN1971Hi Everyone! Day 3 of the Blog Hop already 🙂 This card features 3 of the new 2012-2014 In Colors of Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse as well as the Designer Paper Patio Party. DSCN1968
It's a hello and goodbye card for me. Hello! to the new In Colors but a big goodbye to the old Butterfly Punch and the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set – both retiring at the end of the month. They will remain in my personal stampin' collection. And they were my first Stamp and Punch love fest!

It's a pop-up card! At convention last year, Shelli (Shelli Gardner, co-founder of SU) showed this super-easy way to make a pop-up card. Before that, I always did a lot of special cutting on the inside paper liner to make a pop up!  The trick is to make a little 4 sided strip and adhere one side to the top inside card and adhere an adjacent side to the bottom inside. Mine are all 1/4" wide strips. One can vary the width and length to get all sorts of different combinations. DSCN1965

3 strips of Whisper White all 1/4" wide.
 *(2) cut at 4 1/2".  Score at 1/2", 2", 2-1/2", 4 – these are the taller ones on the side
 *(1) cut at 5". Score at 1/2", 1-1/2", 2-1/2", 3-1/2", 4 1/2" middle.

Let me know if you want me to make a quick video tutorial on how to make pop-up cards!
