Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be on the Planner Street design team. Even though I’m definitely more of a cardmaker, I love to using these planner stamps to create.
I just recently spent two weeks flying in and out of different cities/airports in Europe, so when I first saw the Fly High stamp set, it resonated with me and I knew I had to create something special with it.
With the Planner Street sets, they really push my imagination and I find that they are perfect for me to create scenic cards with them. This one had to be at an airport and when I think of airports, my mind immediately goes to moving walkways. They just make you feel like you’re walking so fast or help you out when you’re running late to catch a flight.
I drew out my scene. In this case, it was really easy. It’s just a few lines here and there using a pencil and a copic multiliner pen.
For the movable walkway, I wanted to add a 3d effect so one side of the walkway is drawn on but I used two strips of paper glued onto acetate to create the handrail and bottom portion, that will be raised by using foam tape.
I drew in the airport windows, which are huge and stamped in two planes. I masked them off and used distress ink to color the white spaces. For the walkway itself, I used Spectrum Noir markers.
I colored and fussy cut the girls. I expected only to use two images but once the card was almost done, I wanted to fill in the empty space with the little animals.
To take the card a step further, I wanted the girl to “move” on this walkway. I cut out a slider channel and she can now move!
I die-cut a frame and added foam tape to give the card dimension and also to allow the girl to move easily. I’m a big fan of interactive cards because I love surprising the recipient with something unexpected so hopefully you like this card. Isn’t this one super fun?
