Happy Valentine’s Day + Slider Card

Buenas Everyone,

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! May this day and everyday be filled with tons of happiness & love! Today I’ll be sharing with you another Valentine’s theme slider card. I must say this one is my favorite. I used different products from some of my favorite crafting companies to create this card.

First, I started out by cutting a front panel which measures 4.24 x 5.50″ (standard size A2) with my fiskars paper trimmer and my card base. I then used Concord & 9th Layers of Love Die to cut out the heart shape (I die cut out two). I used one the negative cut out and stamped the cute puppy from Mama a Elephant Lunar Animals Stamp Set with Antique Linen and colored him with my prisma colored pencils and the second one I used for masking. See photo below.

I used distress ink Fire Brick for the ombré look from dark on top to lightest on bottom. I adhere some double sided tape to the back of my panel to hold the negative piece (with the stamped puppy) in place and added foam tape to give some dimension for my slider piece.

I cut out my slider piece, rounded off the bottom using my We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board, and stamped my sentiment just in the bottom of the slider piece. For the tab to pull the slider I used one part (larger tail) of Reverse Confetti Layered Bow Die Set. At this point I already adhered my main panel to my card base and was testing the slider piece. I notice that the sentiment on the slider was showing through my front panel. At first it was fine but then it kept bugging me. I believe I slide the slider about four to six times and finally decided that I need to cover it. I didn’t want to start over so I ended up adding Yes or No to the slider piece. See photo below.

After adding the Yes No note I testing the sliding and it came out perfect! For the finishing touches I added a small heart confetti to the puppy, added some wink of Stella to the puppy and a ribbon. I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks again for stopping by! Products used will be listed below.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful day!

Xoxo,

Lydine

Hero Arts Challenge: Fabulous Flowers 

Hafa Adai Everyone,

Today I will be sharing with you (I’d call it)”Card One” for the Hero Arts Challenge: Fabulous Flowers. I used a mix of different products from all my favorite crafting companies. I am challenging myself to enter all the challenges and making up to the allowed card entries. For Hero Arts, I could enter up to five cards and I have till February 29th. For the next four days I’ll be creating the cards for Hero Arts and also add another card entry for a different challenge.

It sounds a lot of work but I’m willing to do it and gain more (I’d say) artistic brainstorming going on. I’m one of those peeps that work really well under pressure and knowing there’s a time limit. It makes me brainstorm faster & better (well, I’m hoping better!) Lol… So… Here goes… See below for my entry “Card One”


And here’s a close up

That’s all for today! Thank you for stopping by! Have a beautiful day!

Xoxo,

Lydine

Slider Card + Mama Elephant Products + Another entry for SSSW Challenge

Hafa Adai All,

I’m back with another card post. Today I will be sharing with you a slider card I did recently using Mama Elephant’s Three Amigos stamp set. I must say Mama Elephant creates such cute critters! Love all their products!


I colored these guys using my prisma colored pencils. After I colored them I cut an opening in the area where you usually stamp the cute little messages/words on. I used my craft knife to carefully cut the opening. After that was done I took my card base and places my main panel on top and did my markings so I know where to stamp the little sentiments. See photo below.


Then I added some die cut hearts on my main panel. As you can see in the photos. To add some color I used my distress ink Barn Door. I also stamped a valentine sentiment to my slider panel to add another surprise for the receipient. This slider card was first and I must say I did pretty alright for my first try. If you want to see a short video on the card slider card please head over to my instagram page https://www.instagram.com/creativetouch_gu/ and I appreciate if you follow me for more creations!

First Blog Post & SSS Wednesday Challenge

Not many people heard of Guam but for people that had the experience of traveling or vacationing on Guam loves the tropical feel of it. Please forgive me if my post is not making sense or is not that appealing. I am still new to the blog world and will be learning more from all of you!

For my first post today, I wanted to share with you some valentine’s day cards. I will be entering Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Have a Heart using Reverse Confetti products.
