Umbrella Man Pop Up Card Tutorial at Stamp Club

The April Stamp Club meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 10th, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at the Scrapbook Page.  I will be doing this month's Stamp Club Tutorial which will be featuring one of the Sizzix Pop-Up Dies, the Scalloped Circle Die.

Here is the card we are making Tuesday

Please watch this video which is the Scalloped Circle Die Tutorial.  It is by designer Karen Burniston, and you will see how easy, fun and versatile these dies are!  I will bring my own Scalloped Circle die to the meeting so everyone can use it.
The card we are making is the Clock/Umbrella Man Card that features various Tim Holtz dies, (as seen on the Scalloped Circle die Tutorial Video above.)  
This is the front

Umbrella Man with Clock Dies

Finished card with embellishments

 To make this card, we use the Umbrella Man die, the Clock die, and the decorative trim die, shown in the video.  I will bring all of these dies plus the Tim Holtz stamps that coordinate this card as well.  I will ask that everyone bring the supplies listed below.
Supplies each person should bring:
(1) 8 1/2 x 11" or larger sheet of patterned cardstock...choose something that has a TIME or CLOCK theme. Karen uses paper that resembled text, or newsprint.  Bo Bunny, DCWV, Graphic 45 and Tim Holtz all have paper with a clock theme that would work nicely.
You will be making a 6 x 6 inch card, so you want enough paper to make the card itself, and enough so if you wanted to cut out any images like a clock, or another image to use as embellishments, you can.
(Look at the example in the video to get inspiration and ideas.)
(1) 12"x12" sheet of black cardstock for use in cutting out the Umbrella Man, the clock and the clock arms.
(1) 8 1/2 x 11" sheet clear cardstock for use in cutting out the scalloped circle.
Tape runner or ATG gun
Black embossing powder-we are going to emboss the Umbrella man and clock.
Heat gun
Versamark ink
Black Archival Ink
Tim Holtz trinkets or other embellishments, as many as you would like to use on your card.

I will provide all the dies for this project, so we will just all take turns cutting out our die cuts.  If anyone wants to bring a Big Shot, that will speed up our cutting process.  Some of us can be cutting the circle while others are cutting out the Umbrella Man, and so on. 
For fun I will bring a few additional dies, so that if anyone wants to, they may cut out die cuts they may not have at home.  Time permitting, you can make another card using my "Floating Frames" die.  The tutorial for this die is HERE:  Look at these samples and if you have an idea to make a card, and wish to use this die, please bring the paper you want to cut and you may use it!  I will also bring my chandelier die, and any other dies I feel might be good for using on a pop-up card.  
 *****If you have a Sizzix Pop-Up die not listed above, please bring to share!******
Look up Karen Burniston or Sizzix Pop-Up Dies on You Tube to view several helpful videos useful when making these lovely pop-up cards!
See you Tuesday April 10th at the Scrapbook Page, Shawnee, KS  
6:30 p.m. sharp!
