Stamp Review Crew: Watercolor Wings

Welcome to the newest edition of the  Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.    Watercolor Wings is our featured stamp set for this round.  With every new catalog there is usually one stamp set that really stands out to me as a favorite and Watercolor Wings was it for me this time.  If it is not already one of your favorites I am sure it will be after you see the projects the Crew have created!

My card this time has a Clean & Simple front
with a surprise pop-up on the inside.

I am rather excited about the pop-up mechanism.  It is super simple!  I enjoy figuring out alternative ways to use products-especially dies and framelits.  I often think I am more logical than artistic when it comes to crafting.  My background is science and math...can you tell?  :)

Here is a side view of the pop-up.
I did make video for this card as it is easier to demonstrate than explain.  This is only my third video and it has been so long since my last one that I completely forgot how the editing software works!  I fumbled my way through so please excuse all the flubs.

Thanks for joining us today!  Please click on the links below to see more wonderful Watercolor Wings creations!
