Hooray Hamster Dies
To make this fun slider slimline card, I’m going to start with the Slimline Pull Tab Dies and the Stitched Slimline Trio Dies. I am using the Colored Cardstock from Heffy Doodle as well as 80 lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock.
Using the Grassy Lass Border Dies, I’m going to create 2 little hills for the hamsters to roll down. I am using G00, G40, and G12 Copic markers to color my hills.
I’m positioning the Wavy Water Slides Dies so that they’re hidden behind the grass.
I am stamping my little Hooray Hamster Stamps and then coloring the images with my Copic markers.
I am using: 0, BG32, BG11, BG10, BG0000
E00, E50, E30, E31, E34, E11, E13, E40, E42, E43
For the slider portion, I’m going to cut 2 extra wheels, plus 2 small circles (these are from Lawn Fawn’s Reveal Wheel dies), and grab 2 brads.
First, I’m attaching my colored hamster to the colored wheel.
Next, I’m attaching my extra wheel to my small circle with a brad.
Now, I’m going to put foam squares on the wheel and attach both wheels to each other. This will allow the hamster wheel to turn in circles.
I’m cutting down a small circle to be my slide and then attaching a strip of acetate to it.
Once I adhere my grass to the front of the card, I will adhere my hamster wheel to the acetate strip.
I stamped my sentiments, adhered my grass using 3D foam strips, and then attached my hamsters. Now my hamsters can turn in circles and slide down the hill at the same time!
CARD 2 – Wingman Toucan Shadow Box
For this tropical card, I’m starting with the Big Shadow Box Die and some dark cardstock. Using the UnbeLEAFable Stencil and embossing paste, I’m creating the pattern on both sides (letting it dry before flipping over to the other side.)
While that dries, I’m going to stamp my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color my images with Copic markers. Click on any photo to view it larger.
After die cutting my images, I’m ready to start assembling the card! I am using liquid glue and 3D foam squares to adhere all the images. I am using double sided tape to construct the shadow box.
For my bird swing, I am using a small hole punch to put a hole on top of the swing and then using yellow and white baker’s twine to make a bow. I’m attaching it to an acetate strip. I am also attaching my yellow bird to an acetate strip so that he can fly back and forth.
