After a lovely Christmas/New Year break, we are back with an exciting array of challenges lined up for the year, at Just Add Ink.

To kick off our challenge schedule for 2017, we have a blog hop highlighting projects by the Just Add Ink Design Team ... we've all made a pop-up or interactive project.

You may have come to my blog from the very talented Karren's blog, but if not, you can see her creation as you make your way around the 'loop'.

I have made a masculine card, as it's my favourite kind - plus, I'm in love with the new Urban Underground suite of products in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalogue.

Here's the front of my card:

When you first open it, this is what you see:

.... and this is the full pop-up component in the middle, courtesy of the fabulous new Balloon Pop-Up thinlits dies:

Listed below are all the Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card ... if you would like to buy them for yourself, just click on one of the thumbnail images, to be taken to my online store (Australian residents only).

Next up is Tina ... click on the "next" graphic below, to see what she has made.

We hope you have a lot of fun "hopping" around the creations we've made.  If you get lost, or hit a broken link, anywhere along the way, just go back to the Just Add Ink home page, where you'll find a complete list of all the participants in the blog hop.
