Pop-Up ATC's

My Monthly ATC group made Pop-Up ATC's this month.....It was so fun to see all of the variations of the theme.  Warning- LOTS of photo's..... : )

Here are the Pop-Up ATC's I made:
  The hearts were stamped in Versamark, then Pan Pastels were added. The images are Embossing Arts- which are available at I Brake for Stamps.
 The inside colors are Gelato's, the cardstock was white to start off with. I did a little Cuttlebug Highlight with Pan Pastels on the inside too. The heart is cut with an exacto knife.

Next, I made a Birthday ATC:
  I stamped and colored the cake- which is from a $1.00 bin somewhere....and the sentiment is from Sweet Stamps (clear B-day set). The background is called Starburst and is a Technique Junkies technique.
 This background is made with Gelato's. I cut slits in the cardstock and added the DP for the gifts and added shimmery Washi and added a bow.

 This is my 1-4-1 swap card. The image and frame are from Sweet Stamps. I used Distress markers to color the image and added Distress Stickles.
 I cut this with an exacto knife, so the fan pops up when you open the card. The pattern was on the internet.....

Here are the trades I rec'd:
On the Lt is Mary's ATC closed- love the cool brown paper she used  and on the Rt- Deb M
 and on the inside:

Mary's pop-up is on the Lt- and the heart is attached to the door sides and the heart pops up when you open the doors. Deb's ATc open on the Rt.

On the Lt Marcie and on the Rt- Diane M

 On the Lt is Marcy's open ATC and on the Rt- Diane's open ATC.

 Harriet's ATC closed
And, open.  Harriet cut a circle and cut around in circles, attached it to her heart, and it pops up like a spring.
On the Lt- Carol and on the Lt is Mari
On the Lt- Carol created a little city scene, and on the Rt Mari's open ATC.
This is Joanne's Pop-out card.
And, finally, Linda made a darling Valentine Pop-up
The Gold heart is at the end of a popsicle stick (or you could use a coffee stirrer).
Here is Linda's open- when you pull up on the heart.
What a fun swap and a great day of inspiration- lots of great pop-up ideas!

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly these are amazing - and so lovely. i always thought ATC's were just a plain base of card, and that they did not open - I have learnt otherwise.
