How-To Video: Pop-Up Greeting

Hello out there. 

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you have TONS to do, but instead find it necessary to take on a huge project that could have waited?  Oh, yes.  I decided that I needed to redo my scraproom.  And this project keeps growing and growing.  I need to stop!  Ha. Meantime, the work piles up.  Eek.

Anyway, here is a video that I did for pop-up greetings.  This is an old technique in the cardmaking world, but it is a favorite of mine.  Easy to do.

Again, the wonderful music of my brother-in-law, Keith Chapman.  More about him below.



Hero Arts stamps (big tree, bird and greeting), notecards, flowers, tag and black gem
Ranger Diamond Stickles (this the must-have one)
Versafine Black Ink

Chocolates and Blueberries Chalk Ink Queue
Stampin’ Up Slot Punch (for scallop edge)
Jute, trim, colored pencils and Gamsol

Back to the music guy – Keith. 🙂  He is married to Ken’s sister and they have three cutie kids who I scrapbook about often.  They had been doing dental mission work throughout Africa on the Mercy Ship.  But they decided to move to Liberia just recently and are currently trying to make a house a home there.  (At this moment, ithas no power, etc.)  We love them and miss them, but we are super proud.  They are opening a dental clinic there and living as missionaries.  Amazing.  Anyway, he has always loved music and created a few cds.  They are available for purchase – just email me if you are interested. And feel good knowing that the money will be going to support them as they help people in need.  (BTW… I am sharing all this because I have had a few people already email me.)

  7. Fabulous video! I always forget about pop-ups and this one is so easy to do and looks great. Good luck with your scraproom – I keep saying I’m going to get my in order. One day…..

  8. Great Card!!! I love the pop-up in the inside and will have to try that sometime. I also love the story about your brother-in-law and his family. That is so great that they are dedicating their lives to helping others in need. I would be so proud of that fact as well. Good for them!!!

  9. Thank you so much for your videos. I truly had a “aha” moment when you showed how to get rid of a small inky fingerprint on a finished piece. That hint is worth the price of admission, LOL!

  10. Jennifer, thank you for that video. What a great card and thanks for the pop-up instruction. I always wondered how that was done. After viewing your videos, I always walk away with a big smile, and a sigh and saying, “Gosh, I love her…she’s so inspirational.” Ask Sean! I think he’s going to finish that remark from now on. Oh, and the getting rid of the smudgy fingerprint…you get a reward for that one!

  11. Fabulous, Jennifer! The pop up element is such a fun surprise for the recipient…must remember to do one of these. Love the trim you used on this…goes with the jute perfectly…you are the jute queen. 😉 Ok, you asked for video ideas last week…well I have one now…a guided tour of your scraproom! 😉 I love seeing how other people are set up.

  12. I LOVE the card!!!! if someone tells me pop-ups are oldfashion I’m going to give her a link to your blog, and I’m sure she’ll change her mind!!!
    you have a wonderful family, wieh all is well with them!!!

  13. I also tried Versafine for the first time recently and LOVED it! 🙂 Your card is so beautiful, I really liked the sparkle on the flowers and birdie!

  14. Thank you for the “pop-up” reminder, I just counted, and I made my last one six years ago… time for a come-back!

    Here is another request to see your Craft Room, when you are finished re-doing it~ I would love a tour!

    Lovely story about your Brother-in-Law…. I wish him and his family great blessings for their selfless works! Erin
