Hello, Judy Woodland here. It's my pleasure to be hosting the challenge this week. Today I have a little paper tole for you. All you need to do is take an image, make at least 3 copies, and cut out smaller and smaller bits of it to layer together.

Here is my card:



For this card I stamped 3 images of the flower on watercolor paper, die cut them out,  and then colored them with watercolors. Then I cut smaller and smaller parts of them, and layered them on top of each other with foam tape. Very fun!!!

Here are the ingredients:
GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Charcoal Brown Card Stock
Stampendous Lovely Garden Stamp Set and Die
Hot Off The Press Emma's Garden Patterned Paper
GKD Stamper's Favorites Stamp Set for Sentiment
Spellbinders Lotus Die
Stash Pearls

PRIZE 
The prize is some Gina K Designs Duo Sets. I have 3 sets to give away and maybe some other goodies:-)

There is no sponsor this week so no bonus entry.

WOW, we had some really great entries last week for the pop-up cards. Many of you it was your first pop-up card ever. Perfect...that is what a challenge is all about...to get outside our comfort zones and to try something new.

Today's RANDOM WINNER is:

Kathy Krug with this gorgeous card.


TOP 3 in no particular order

Graciellie, with this adorable popup. Be sure to visit her blog to see the gorgeous front.

Welcome to the Mod Squad Challenge! Thanks to everyone who participated in last weeks "All About Water" challenge.

This is a sponsor week!! Our sponsor this week is Stampendous and they have a GREAT PRIZE for 1 lucky random winner!



The PRIZE !!


Stampendous Build A Bouquet Dies

Please show your support and check out the links and participate!


THE CHALLENGE:

Make a pop-up card of any kind.
Here is a video if you need help.
Step cards and box cards qualify since they have elements that pop-up once opened. 
I only ever made 1 pop-up card. With this new die I can see that I will make more.

You may use any company's images to qualify for the prize but if you use an image from Stampendous you get an extra entry! To see how that works see the "Winners" link above.

Heartfelt Creations paper
Hot Off The Press Lace Stickers
Pure Luxury Navy Cardstock



For the vase I used Encrusted Jewels blue. I used the glittery embossing over the water and added the fragments over the base only. It is more glittery then seen here. I also covered the roses with Wink Of Stella.

Welcome and I am so glad you are here.  For sneak peaks at upcoming challenges be sure to join the Mod Squad Challenge Group on Facebook. You do not want to miss next week;-)

It is a prize week, with a Gina K Designs grab bag!



The challenge this week is to include "water" on your card. It could be inked, stamped, actual water...go for it! You can use any vendor stamps and supplies. But if you use at least one of the sponsors images (Gina K, StampTV) you get a second entry by putting MSC in front of the link name. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

My card for this challenge is my take 2 on the case I did of Theresa Momber's card. I used all Pan Pastels on the background instead of ink. Check my blog for more details.
