This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we are celebrating our country. I chose this adorable House Mouse stamp that I have used several times because it just beams patriotism to me - not to mention the little mice are just so darn cute!!!



This is a pop up card - yep, it is a card. It can be folded flat for mailing then it "pops" up to display! I had a blast making this and used the instructions from The Next Level challenge blog.


Patterned Paper - Scenic Route
Cardstock - Misc from stash
Stamped Image - House Mouse by Stampabilities
Stamped Sentiment - Paper Inspirations
Metal Tag - Brave by Making Memories
Stickles - Yellow and Diamond
Embossing Folder - Script
Die Cut - Thanks from With Gratitude
Other Misc Materials from Stash - oversized paperclip, ribbon, Stickles, gem

I hope you enjoy my tribute to my country and I'd love to see what you come up with!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

AWESOME Chica!! I love this little pop-up you did this week! But, you already know I love all your work!!



Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
