Challenge # 150: What's New

Hi Ai Fans!

There's a new Challenge over at the Ai Blog called "What's New". This Challenge is about using something new, whether it's a new stamp, new paper or maybe a new technique. I decided to use the Ai Pop-Ups. The set I chose is called Art Deco Set 1 and comes with 4 sheets of 2 designs.

I have never used a product like this before. Ai Pop-Ups are a DIY Decoupage set that is simple and fun to create a project with. You just punch out the images and pop them up on your project. You can make it fun by adding patterned paper and your own embellishments.

I just added foam squares and some foam tape to the punched out images. Then all you do is layer the images as per the instructions included with the package. 

I also used some of the images on the inside of the card to finish it off.

This was easy, quick and fun, a new way for me to design a card!

Now that the New Year has started, did you make any New Year's resolutions? I made a few "crafty" ones. On the top of my list is to clean and organize my craft room. I also want to use things I have purchased that I just seem to stock pile or "hoard" as my Hubby says. Lastly I would love to take some classes to improve my Copic colouring!

Try something new and then head on over to the Ai Blog for our new Challenge and play along! We'd love to see what you come up with!

Happy Stamping!
