Butterfly Slider Card

August 25, 2017

Hello, it’s Anita here today with a butterfly slider card. Please be sure to watch the YouTube tutorial showing how to construct a slider. It is very easy, thanks to the die that cuts the channel in the card front. The butterfly flutters across the card, anchored by a coin or a metal washer that helps it slide. It’s a fun project that can easily be turned into a birthday card or used to celebrate other occasions. Just substitute the sentiment for a different one!

It’s Karen here!  I’m getting ready to move.  I’m not terribly excited about it, so much work, but I am excited about having a reason to create special cards to express gratitude for those who help me.  Today’s card project is created for my son who LoVeS Starbucks.  He has been with me every step of the way and SO helpful.  Using the Sliders and Spinners die set, I designed a card with a special surprise that slides up.  Continue Reading

Summer Fun Slider Card with Glittered Beach Ball

July 8, 2017

Hello!  Diana here with a Summer Fun card I made after the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly.  I had such a great time helping out at the ECD booth with the Silk Microfine Glitter demonstrations that I got some and continued to play with it once I got home.  At the Expo, I also picked up the Slider and Spinner die set. Here’s my card combining the two.  It’s been a while since I made a slider card and what I love about this die set is that there are four different shape slots you can make for the interactive feature instead of just the usual straight line.  The A Way With Words Dies ‘Summer’ and ‘Fun’ dies are the perfect topping for this card.

Happy Easter Penny Slider

March 13, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here today with a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. With Easter only a month away I thought it would be fun to create an Easter Card using the Krista Schneider Woodland Pals stamp set and coordinating dies. There is a cute little rabbit in this set, making it perfect for Easter.

As you can see, I decided to create a Penny Slider card using Joset Designs Sliders and Spinners die set. It is optional as to whether you use pennies or cardboard circles for the spinner mechanism, however the weight of the pennies does make the image spin and slide better. Instead of a coin, substitute a metal washer. (Cover the hole in the washer with cardstock.)
