On every page of the 4 page bookbinding cards I show in the new video is decorated with 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Rub-on Transfers and on the front and 2nd page on this wedding version I used layered sentiment dies from Honey Bee Stamps. Here are pictures of the 3rd and 4th pages (both sentiments from Dies...to Die For) and also a side where I added a gift card (or cash or check) holder for the newly married couple:

This is the card I create in the new video. The fisherman Clear Views Transparency is from a beautiful set called New Day (for John) in memory of Jill's husband John and the dotted squares were created with dies from Crealies. Here is a side view and more photos that shows a great new fun fold I learned from a Pinterest post of a card by Lisa Curcio:
Do you remember Rub-on Transfers? I used to have a bunch years ago but never used them. I just discovered a gorgeous pack of Rub-on Transfers from 49 and Market called Travel Hike More and used several in this card. I put a three layer lighthouse picture on the inside with dies from the Lighthouse Looking Glass die set from Hero Arts and another gorgeous Clear Views Transparency from New Day (for John.)
Combining the Hero Arts Looking Glass layers with the Clear Views Transparencies make easy gorgeous cards, and I hope my cards in my newest video encourage you to give some of these ideas and products a try!

The background paper on this card is from Whimsy Stamps and the sentiment strip is from Taylored Expressions. The shaker windows were created easily with the Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Plaid die set out of silver and blue cardstock and I added snowflakes and seed beads in the shaker windows as I show in the video. I suggest not tossing all the pieces from the plaid diecuts and I used them to add color and glitter to each of the corners. This Kaleidoscope Plaid die set can easily create many different plaid patterns as you can see from this picture:
This slimline holiday card shows three different configurations of the Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Plaid die set cut out of non-traditional Christmas colors along with some punched snowflakes and a clear sentiment sticker from STAMPlorations.

I popped up a hand of cards on a simple pop up made with a die from Karen Burniston. Here is a side view:
This card and the others I show in my new video here are all made so much easier with the dies from many of my favorite companies. I hope my cards inspire you to give some of these ideas and products a try!

I have been a huge fan of Motion Crafts and their animated stamps and dies for years and was thrilled recently when they released two huge sets of dies and stamps. I made this card with the new You Melt My Heart set which includes 28 stamps, 28 dies, animation grids, double sided skinny adhesive strips and complete instructions all available for only $31 here at HSN. I show how to make this card and how the wheels move and the ice cream sign pulls up to reveal a message in the new video. Here is another view of this adorable interactive ice cream truck:
To see how this card is made and several other unique interactive cards, be sure to watch the new video here. But here is a mini-video showing how the wheels move and the sign goes up and down to reveal the secret message:
I hope my cards and video inspire you to give some of these ideas and products a try!

I made my thank you card with Deco Foil Rainbow Shattered Foil through a slimline stencil from STAMPlorations called Twisties. The sentiment dies are also from CUTplorations (a division of STAMPlorations) as are the stitched rectangle dies.
Be sure to check out the rest of the cards from TEAM SAS here and we would love it if you entered our challenge.
