Uchi's Watch Me Move Animation Card

I sat down and gave my May Simon Say's Stamp May Card Kit the Uchi's Watch Me Move Animation Card Kit a try (now in July, I'm only a few months behind LOL). It must be "my eyes" because I only see the movements when I have the card a certain direction. But my partner thinks its the coolest thing and can play with the card forever! So I know I lined it up straight and that it works correctly.

I die cut the background with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames from Strathmore Bristol smooth paper and ink blended it using Tim Holtz Distress Inks twisted citron, picked raspberry and spiced marmalade. I then created a pocket using my Fuse tool and a project life pocket, for the grid to slide back and forth in. Flat taped half a 1" circle on the side and stamped it with slide me from Lawn Fawns, Push Here stamp set and double layer foam mounted it onto a card base.

Party Animal | Peek A Boo

I've been trying to get a head of the game, so to speak as there are a lot of summer birthday's that I like to send cards too. Here I was finally able to play and practice with my Tim Holtz Distress Oxides. I created my background on Bristol smooth paper, using peeled paint and broken china. Then spritz it with a distress sprayer and dried it with a heat gun. I then misted it with sheer shimmer sparkle spray and created my own glittery paper!

I then die cut the front panel with the MFT Peek a Boo die, and also die cut the background with MFT Blueprints 13 frame die. Stamped the Party Animal images onto Spectrum Noir Card Stock and colored them in with Copics and die cut them. Stamped my sentiment, and started assembling it onto a Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock base. Fancied it up with glossy accents on the party hats and added a few Pretty Pink Posh clear mix sequins for embellishments.

Bella and Friends | Interactive Card

I just recently found a fellow card crafter Lesley Oman and her CCWM challenges. I liked her evening craft of this interactive card and needed one myself for an upcoming event I thought I would try one of my own.

I first created my clouds with distress ink and a template moving upwards. Then turned it around and did the grass with another template and sponged the same way. I then set the background aside to dry and stamped my images on spectrum noir 100lb paper. I colored the puppy and the parrot with copic markers. Put some wink of stella onto the balloon and spectrum noir sparkle on the parrot and the puppies collar. Gave the balloon a coating of glossy accents and set aside over night to dry.

Then I cut the background out and the placement for the slider with blueprints 31, adhered everything together and made sure the slider worked. Glue my stamped image on and stamps the sentiments, raised the card front panel with fun foam and attached it to the turquoise card base.

Neat and Tangled | Cottontail Cuties

I made quite a few slider cards for Easter, and they were a big hit. Interactive cards are a lot of work to make but the end result is they are a lot of fun to play with. This stamp set, Cottontail Cuties by Neat & Tangled was so very cute to color and there were so many color combinations you could do with it.

Birthday Flyby | Magical Dragons

Here is a super cute card I wanted to share with you that I made for a dear friend for her birthday. This set is the Magical Dragons by Birdie Brown. It was all the craze this summer and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. It sold out like crazy on all the online stores but I finally got mine.

I created the background clouds with Tim Holtz distress inks, and colored the dragons in with copic markers. Sponged the clouds with distress inks to help them stand out. The dragons wings have spectrum clear sparkle marker on them. I then pop dotted the dragons and the clouds up for some dimension. Added PPP clear mix sequins randomly over the card for more twinkling effect.
