Here is the Inky Impressions Bio:"Inky Impressions is a rubber stamp company carrying images of the cutest little girls and animals.

Each Wednesday Inky Impressions has an Inky challenge hosted by their own Inkettes and if you participate each week, you are eligible to win a special goodie bag from the store at the end of the month. You can also catch some daily inspiration from all of the Inkettes on the Inky Impressions Inspirational Blog! Come play along with the fun and get inky..we dare ya!"

'Stitchy Bear Stamps was created when a good friend of mine Sue from Beary Dust Stamps and I (Stitchy) were selling our products in the same store. One day we got an unexpected email saying that the store was shutting down and when we went to the store, poof it was gone...So, after the dust cleared and several emails later, Stitchy Bear Stamps was born. We gathered all the other creator's from the original store and away we went. It has been quite a learning experience but none the less we are growing everyday with new fabulous creators. I have always believed when God closes one door another Bigger and Better one opens ;)... Thank you all who have read our little story, I do hope you enjoyed ;) stitchy aka stitchy stamps."
My pop up card tutorial

Supplies needed:
Paper cutter
4 1/4"x11" piece of card stock for base
21/2" x 5" piece of card stock for tag
2 3/4" x 5 1/4 " piece of card stock for tag matting
(If you're doing like me you're gonna need extra patterned paper for decorating)
Double sided tape
Hobby blade
corner punch for the tag

Step 1
Score the 4 1/4"x11" piece of card stock at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4" and 10"

Step 2
Turn the same cardstock around and find the middle and mark at 5/8" in from both sides and cut between the marked lines to make room for the tag

Step 3
Add the double sided tape to the front side at each end. One at the top of the last score and on the bottom side at the other score line at the very other end

Step 4
Make your own tag using the 2 1/2" x 5" piece of cardstock and adhere to the mat that is 2 3/4" x 5 1/4". Use the crop-o-dile and the corner punch.

Step 5

Decorate the box using cardstock and patterned papers. I just decorated the panels that are going to show. Here's my cardstock

Step 6
Then I attached my tag. Make sure it's centered and in lines up with the bottom

Step 7
Here it is all finished with embellishments

and here it is closed:

Now it's your turn. Have a go. It's really fun to make this card. I enjoyed every minute of it. Now pop into our challenge blog and join in on the fun and you have to see all the beautiful projects my teammates have made to get you inspired;)
