Easy Slider & Stamp Manipulation

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing this card that I love so much! I had this idea in my head for awhile but when I went to the stamp set, I realized that the bear was actually holding the pie in his hand. I really wanted to make it so he would pop up from a window peeking at the pie.

This happens a lot when I have an idea for an interactive card in my head so sometimes I just have to mask and manipulate the image a bit.

Also, for this particular slider, I don’t need a slider die. I just create a channel using foam tape.

Thankfully, it’s easier to show you than explain in words, so I have a video for you!

Circle Spinner | Sweet Stamp Shop

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a fun card using the new circle spinner die from Sweet Stamp Shop. This die is pretty versatile because you can use it as an interactive card or you can use it as a frame to spotlight a scene. I am using it interactively today paired with the Reel It In Stamp & Die set.

I have gone fishing once in my lifetime and I thought it was pretty fun once I got the hang of it. Of course, I think casting and reeling in a fish was the most fun. Touching a fish… not so much, but I digress. I wanted to mimic the reel and the casting using the spinner card.

I also used one of the wave border dies that haven’t been released yet, but I find this a versatile die as well. You can use it for waves or to create a scalloped edge. In this case, I used it in the obvious manner for the waves in the ocean.

I have a video tutorial for how I created this card from start to finish. I hope you enjoy it! Everything I use will also be linked below. Have a great day!

Beam Me Up | Lawn Fawn

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope the week has been treating everyone well so far (halfway to the weekend!). Today, I’m sharing a card from one of my favorite sets from the newest Lawn Fawn collection, Beam Me Up. Of course, when I first saw this set, I wanted to do a pull up slider tab with the spaceship beaming up aliens. I’ve seen a lot of these wonderful cards, so I wanted to do something a little different.

 

Be sure to check out how I created it over at Drive By Craft’s blog.

And as an added bonus, I have a video as well.

Love Cynthia – Hidden Slider

Hi everyone! I just had to share this fun card I made. It was one I created for my coworker who is leaving. She loves all the superhero movies, and why not make her into one! The best part is that she flies!

I used distress inks to color the background and the cloud on top. Using a white gelli pen, I scattered stars everyone. I die cut a retired Clearly Besotted item for the cityscape, so it was so easy to put this card together. The clouds on the top of the card hide the slider, so the little girl can move freely and look like she’s flying.

Here is the video tutorial too:

Hope you enjoy this card. I think it’s one of my favorites so far!

Planner Street – Fly High

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?
