A Birthday Slider Card

Happy Weekend! Today I have another interactive card to share. I can't stop making fall themed cards, the colors are so appealing! This one is for the MFT Birthday Project Challenge - Birthday Surprise.


I had a slider die in my stash, but wanted to determine myself how far it slides open, so I cut it out without a die. After I had constructed the white base rectangle, I cut out a matching piece for the front that extended into the tab to pull the slider. I inked the front pieces with an ink blending tool and added droplets of water. After I had die-cut the Die-namics Rolling Hills from the grass part, I assembled the card.


Now I inked a piece of white cardstock with red and orange colors and die-cut the Die-namics Trees in the Forest from it. I adhered the trees with a strong clear glue behind the fence.
Then I stamped all my images from the BB Fall Friends set, colored them with Copics and fussy-cut them. I adhered the girl with the leaves to the front and the cute quirrels to the inside for the surprise.


Finally, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Anything-but-Basic Birthday Wishes.


Here is a little video to see the card in action. Sorry for the bad lighting!


Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

A Watercolor Card Set

Hi there! A friend of mine likes to give cards without a sentiment on the outside. Because I usually add sentiments to the front, I decided to make her a set of cards matching this criteria for her birthday.

Here comes a watercolor card set with a bit of bling (so it fits the current SSS Wednesday Challenge: Bling it on):


I trimmed three panels from watercolor paper slightly smaller than the card bases and stamped the images from the new MFT set Wildflowers with waterproof ink. Then I colored everything with Peerless Watercolors, added ink droplets and little details with a white gel pen. After I had adhered the panels to the cards, I added sequins for a bit of bling.


A stamping tool makes it so easy to create a set of similar cards. I wanted to make a set of five, but ran out of time!


This clear stamp packaging I had kept is perfect to hold the set and the envelopes. I only added a strip of patterned paper to one side and my little gift was finished.


I hope she will like this! Thank you for stopping by today :)

MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master

Here I am again, sharing my card for the MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar contest for the category Innovation Master. I made this one today and had so much fun!! The cute BB Fall Friends set is just too adorable.

Brace yourself for a very photo-heavy post!


I decided to create a z-fold card. It offers a lot of space to add details to a cute scene. All my images are colored with Copics and the background of the card was ink-blended with an ink-blending tool.


I used various dies - the Die-namics Birch Trees, the Die-namics Grassy Hills and Die-namics Frightful Fence. My images are fussy-cut, because I didn't have the matching dies for all sets.






The card stands on its own, can lay flat...


... and can be folded to be put into an envelope.


I'll share a video later Instagram for you to see it in action. I hope you like this one as much as I do! It was so fun to try something new.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!
