New Baby Slider Card Video

Hello, Crafters.

This morning I uploaded my video which shows how to make slider cards using the Stampin' Up! Sliding Stars Framelits Dies.

I've shared photographs today of the three sliders I've made so far. 

They are the paper aeroplane, the bees, and the new baby card. 

They are just so easy to make using these dies.

The Sliding Star Framelits Dies and the Shooting Star Stamp Set are currently available in the 2016 - 2016 Annual Catalogue as a bundle which saves 10% off the price. 

The first card I made was the paper aeroplane flying around the globe. 

I had an Australian friend very much in mind when I made this slider. 

Last week, Carol had asked if I've made a Bon Voyage card using Stampin' Up! products. 

The answer was no but it started me thinking and this is the result. 

Unfortunately, I didn't have a Bon Voyage sentiment so used a birthday greeting but the idea is there!

The main thing I learned from making this slider is that our one-penny pieces here in the UK are too big for the images in the Shooting Star Stamp Set.

They're three quarters of an inch in diameter, which is approximately 2 cm. 

I had to punch a circle to go behind the plane to conceal the coins. 

After this, I went onto using our five-pence pieces which are a tad over half an inch, approximately 1.5 cm.

I then made the bee's slider card and am totally in love with these images! 

There are dies to cut them out, which makes life delightfully easy! 

I chose to use Delightful Dijon because I had a few 6" x 6" squares of the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (DSP) left over from our recent Team Training. 

The design is absolutely spot on for this card. 

I decided to make the New Baby Slider Card for the video because I wanted to show the versatility of Stampin' Up! products. 

You can use the dies to make the slider cards and then choose any stamp set that has suitably-sized images. 

I decided to use the cat from the Made With Love Stamp Set, the boottees and bow from the Something For Baby Stamp Set, the ducks from the Barnyard Babies Stamp Set, and the sentiment from the Baby Bear Stamp Set. 

I think they have worked well together. 

Now I have this set of dies, I won't be getting rid of them, ever! 

They will always come in handy for cards for all occasions. 

I already have my eye on Foxy Friends and the Fox Builder Punch, flowers from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals, flowers from the Botanical Builder Dies, the baby snowman from the Snow Place Stamp Set for Christmas. 
The possibilities are endless!

That's about it for today. I'm off to work now and will be back later.

Happy crafting.
