Peek A Boo Double Slider Card with Motion Crafts Dies and Stamps

**If you are here for the Motion Crafts Blog Hop, check out this card I also made and then click here to go to my Blog Hop blog post for a chance to win and for the next link**

All week long I have been sharing cards I made with the newest stamps and dies release at Motion Crafts by Uchi's Design. I just received the brand new Double Slider Die and watched this video to find out how to make a card with it. Then I made this peek a boo card for my grandson who loves playing peek a boo. Look what happens when the two "pull here" tabs are pulled:

The little animated bear moves up and down playing peek a boo and the heart changes to LOVE! I also used the bee and heart flower stamps and dies from the Be Happy Stamp and Die Set and the LOVE you is from the Vertical Butterfly Set all by Motion Crafts. 

I did not have this card done in time for this week's video, but to see more Motion Crafts cards and how they actually move, click here. I am going to do a video soon showing how to make more cards with this fun double slider die. 

If you watch my newest video and read this blogpost, you will also see where this week you have two opportunities to win dies and stamps from Motion Crafts and my Celebrate March Grand Prize will be given away this week as well. All of these contests close March 31st, so hurry and check them out. (Pix on the right side of the blog for the Grand Prize drawing opportunity.)

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

I am posting new cards made with Motion Crafts by Uchi's Designs animated stamps and dies all week here and showed this card and others in my newest YouTube video here. 

I was able to personalize this animated card for my grandson with a new ABC Animation set from Motion Crafts. Look at the heart above and then look at this picture:

 See how it changes to LOVE? The hearts also move back and forth and the letters move too when the tab is pulled. I love the animation in these cards and they are so easy to make with these innovative dies and stamps. Here is a look at the back of this card:

I love how this card turned out and think my grandson will too:)

I am so happy to be participating in a blog hop today with my friends at Motion Crafts by Uchi's Designs. I am a huge fan of their animated stamps and dies and their new release is full of innovative dies and many fantastic animated stamps. I made this Bear Hugs card using the Animation Card Pull Slider Die and a cute animated bear and Hello  and the Bear Hugs from the new Critters Animated Stamps and Die Set.

Here is a picture of the inside of the Bear Hugs card and another card I made with the Animation Card Pull Slider: 

My Hello Friend card was made with the Animation Grid Die Cut so I was able to use color in the grid and stamping. I stamped the sweet animated mouse from the Sunshine set of animated stamps and the animated star is from the Essentials Set. Watch this short video to see the awesome animation of the stamps and dies from Motion Crafts (you can click the little box on the right bottom to make the video larger):

Tonic Studios Craft Kit Flower Dies and Gorgeous Papers

 I recently found out that Tonic Studios USA still has a bunch of the Tonic Craft Kit 05 available to order and I got my crafty hands on one of them! And you can too! The Tonic Craft Kits are hugely popular and sell out very quickly in the UK and here in the USA, but the Craft Kit 5 was received here in the USA a little late and so there is  still stock available to order. The Crafted Corsage Die Set is worth the $39.99 price alone, but just look at some of the gorgeous paper you get:

I am in love with this paper and made the card above using pieces of almost all the paper I received in the box. I did not do the embossing- much of the paper is already embossed and is just lovely. Here is a look at the inside of this card with more of the gorgeous paper and flower dies: 

I have been playing with attaching napkins to cardstock with my new Mini MINC and made the flowers on these two cards using napkin paper:

The background on the first card was made with another new Tonic Nuvo product called Fresh Pear Mica Mist through a Tonic stencil called Sunray Scallop. The Mica Mist is a spray and is very pretty to use through stencils or to color anything. All the flowers were created with the Crafted Corsage Die Set from the Tonic Craft Kit 05 and shaped with the tool you would also receive in the kit. I cut the background in the second card with a Jaded Blossom Card Layers Die and added Easter Blessings from Kat Scrappiness.

In this Craft Kit 05 you would also receive a stamp set, some ink, glitter drops and a glue pen. You can see it all here.

**If you are loving these dies and paper and want this Tonic Craft Kit 05, just call the Tonic USA service department at 844-866-4287 and tell them you heard about the availability of this Craft Kit 05 from me. Gary, who is the head of Tonic USA, said they are available to order but not on line at this point. New kits are sold every month and all include Tonic Studios dies, stamps, papers and Nuvo goodies. Those do sell out, so if you want those, you may want to consider a subscription or jump on them when you see them.**

Swimming By to Say Hi Shaker Card

When I saw the Ocean View Sparkle Blend mix of sequins and cute little fish from Doodles Paper Playground, I knew I wanted to make an aquarium shaker card with them and this is the result. I die cut the card front aquarium using some Cutplorations stitched rectangle dies and the fish using dies from Penny Black and Impression Obsession. I stamped the cute stamp from Joy's Life on a light blue dp sheet and glued down the die cut fish before creating the shaker with the fun Ocean View DPP mix. Here are a couple more views of the card:

The cute stamp on the inside is also from Joy's Life and I attached a few more IO fish. These shaker cards are so fun to make and I hope you try some with these great sequin mixes from Doodles Paper Playground!

Celebrating with Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends!

I am continuing to have fun as a guest designer diva at Doodles Paper Playground designing with their Sparkle Blends which are packages of fun sequin and bead mixes sold exclusively here at White Rose Crafts LLC. 

I used a My Favorite Things Balloon Shaker Die set and Balloon Pouch to make the fun balloon on this card along with a pretty DPP Sparkle Blend mix called "Orange You Glad". I die cut a "celebrate" die from Penny Black and sponged some orange ink on just half of it and attached some confetti orange pieces too. 

On the inside of the card I stamped a fun sentiment from Gina K Designs and added a couple more cake pieces.

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This year, all challenges at SAS4Kids are Anything Goes 4 Kids! We will usually have an alternative theme that you can choose to follow, but are not required to.

The theme for this challenge is: Anything Goes 4 Kids OR Cards for Boys! It is not required that you send in your card if you enter our challenges, but our kids would sure love it if you did!

I created a cute card for a special boy using new dies from Karen Burniston. As is always the case with Karen’s dies, the real fun happens when the card is opened:

A castle with a dragon pops up to wish the special boy Happy Birthday! Too cute for your favorite little boy!

Day Three Therm O Web Designer Stencils Easter Card

I have been sharing cards all week made with Therm O Web's new Designer Stencils and I think this is my favorite of the cards I made. I love the look of the positive acetate foiled patterns over the negative foiled patterns die cut with Gina Marie Designs Big and Little Pierced Chain Oval Layered Dies to create these sparkly Easter eggs. I simply attached them to a older Easter dp I had in my stash and my colorful fun Easter card was done. Here is a closeup look at the sparkly Easter eggs:

For more details on how to do these techniques and links to the products used, scroll down here on my blog or watch Monday's video here.

I am entering this card in the Easter/Spring challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday. Thanks for visiting and helping me #share the joy of creativity!

Happy St. Patrick's Day with Doodle's Paper Playground Sparkle Blends

I am so happy to be continuing as a guest designer diva at Doodles Paper Playground and to be able to play some more with their Sparkle Blend sequins available exclusively at White Rose Crafts LLC. The new Test Your Luck sequin and bead mix is perfect for St. Patrick's Day which is this Saturday. I created a four leaf lucky clover shaker card using heart dies from Tonic Studios and then created a shaker in just one of the heart windows where I dumped some of the Test Your Luck Sparkle Blend mix. I attached a little green flower from the mix on each of the other acetate windows just for fun. Here is a close-up look at this fun Sparkle Blend mix:

I added a couple more sequins and a fun sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to the inside of my card. I love how this card turned out! Happy St. Pat's Day everyone!

Having a Play with Therm O Web Stencils Day Two

As I shared yesterday, I recently received the new Therm O Web Deco Foil Designer Stencils and have been playing with different ideas with them. I wondered how it would look to apply Deco Foil Transfer Gel through a pinwheel stencil onto a Gina K Designs Foil-mate and then foil the whole thing with Rainbow Deco Foil and this was the fun result. It is bright and colorful so I thought maybe a kid would like to give it to a special teacher and used some alphabet dies to say "thanks" in the eclipse technique way. The "teacher" die is from Simon Says Stamp. Here is a look from the side to see the "thanks" a bit clearer:

After making a pretty Deco Foil background, there is always so much lovely foil left so I had to use a toner sheet to make another rainbow background that I used in this card:

Foil is always so hard to photograph, but here are a couple more shots including the inside where I used more of that gorgeous rainbow foil:

I used a stitched rectangle die from Stamplorations and a Happy Birthday frame from Memory Box on the front, and a Celebrate die from Tonic Studios and an old candle punch from Martha Stewart on the inside.

Links to the other products used in these two cards:
Deco Foil Designer Stencils (Pinwheel)
Deco Foil Transfer Gel
Deco Foil Rainbow 
Deco Foil Toner Sheets
TOW/Gina K Designs Where's the Party Foilmate
Kat Scrappiness Condensed Uppercase Alpha Dies

Stop back again Friday for my favorite of the cards made with these fun new products from Therm O Web.
