Hello all, its December already, the last month of 2018!! Is it just me or are the months just flying by faster than before? Time to go chop down our tree, put up those decorations and as the German tradition goes, bake cookies for the 4 Sundays of Advent, although mine never get that far, so I have to bake double this year! Its also the start of a new challenge over at a2z Scrapbooking blog where our last theme of the year is “Winter Wonderland”. So I hope to see your wintery cards over at our blog and you might just win the prize this month which is the Hero Arts Holiday Tags digital stamps!
So for this challenge I decided to make a fun slider card with Hero Arts Winter Time Fun stamp set. I first created the background by sponging in Wilted Violet, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry & Mermaid lagoon distress inks and cut it with a rectangle die. For the snowy bit, I added white watercolour from the Prima Marketing metallic range so its nice and shiny! The snow hill was created using a white chalk marker. I then stamped all the little critters, the tree and the sleigh onto a white card stock and cut it with my Brother scan and cut. Next I coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers.
All I had to do now was to stick the little critters on the sleigh and assemble the slider part which I did by cutting a little rectangle on the card and adding a foam tape between my sleigh and a coin. To see a video of how I create slider card you can see this post here. I adhered the fox and the tree on the card, adding some Nuvo crystal drops to create snowlike effect in the tree. To finish I adhered this panel onto my card base with foam tape so that the coin would have space to move between the coloured panel and the card base.
Here’ s a video of my slider card in action! if you liked any of the Hero Arts stamps in my post, you can get it from a2z Scrapbooking store and if they’re sold out, you can custom order it! Make sure to use my code Gwendolyn15 to get a 15% discount on any of your orders $25 and above.
