Splitcoast Tutorial: Sentiment Strip Pop-Up

I wasn't able to find a tutorial author for this week's slot so guess who gets to come to the rescue when that happens?! This week's tutorial is a Sentiment Strip Pop-Up card, and it's also a twofer, because I have a video for the background panels as well!
Can we talk about this adorable stamp set first though? How cute is that puffer fish? This set is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and it's Fin-tastic Friends (there's a mermaid too - go peek!).
The card design has a little pop-up column in the center, which you can use to prop up all kinds of sentiment strips - there are so many cute ones in this clear set, so I got to show off a bunch of them!
On to the background panels - A Colorful Life Designs put out a massive release of all sorts of scenic stencils! I've used 9 stencils total here, and documented my process in a video for you in case underwater scenes are your thing. There are underwater stencils as well as mountain and desert stencils, and some others for grounding and other backgrounds. Here are all the scenic ones: 
.....and there are a couple of fish designs PLUS a sentiment set to kick off a line of clear stamp sets! Each of the stencils has both positive and negative pieces, so there are multiple ways to use each piece plus kabillions of combinations for scenes. So fun. As always, please use my coupon code for 10% off your order - or if you'd like the entire lot check out the Master Creator section for bundle discounts of 20%!

You can find my background video HERE and the card fold video HERE! Come back here and let me know what you think!

Our AC went out on Saturday and we have heat advisories until Thursday night... I actually put on Hawaiian music yesterday to try to trick my brain - at least if I'm going to be this warm, I need to feel like it's worth it! 

Tomorrow I'm attending an artist's reception at the MO State Fairgrounds - my Bel Air Reflections drawing was juried into the Top 50 gallery, and I'm excited to see it, along with the other honored artists and their work. Then back to work on a commission, if I can keep from sticking to it! This humidity is no joke! Bleh. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm in San Antonio, Texas and we understand humidity. At 4am, it was at 94% so we get you. ☺ We had a pretty wonderful Summer, though, until now. Since May until last week, we were cloudy, rainy, and cool. One day we were 75*F. In the middle of a Texas Summer? Unheard of! I hope things get better soon. Warm hugs from San Antonio. ☺ Marisela
