Motion Crafts by Uchi's Designs Blog Hop Animated Cards and Prizes!


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):


Here is what you can win on this stop of the blog hop simply by leaving a comment on this blog post before March 31st at midnight: the Motions Crafts Sunshine Animation Stamp Set valued at $14.99 AND the Motion Crafts Pull Slider Die Set valued at $19.99! I used this die set in both the cards I am sharing today and the cute mouse from the stamp set in the blue card. 

AND you can also win one of three $50 gift certificates to Motion Crafts by leaving a comment here on their blog. Each stop of the blog hop has a prize generously provided by Motion Crafts, so be sure to visit each stop this week!

It is my birthday week and I am celebrating all week! Tomorrow (Monday March 26th) I am posting a new video featuring more cards made with Motion Crafts stamps and dies and I have another valuable prize package of Motion Crafts goodies to give away there. It is also the last week to enter my grand prize drawing (just click on the picture at the top right of my blog for details on how you can win that one.) The winners for all three drawings will be picked by Random.org after the contests close on March 31, 2018 at midnight CST. 

I am entering the first card the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land.
