Shooting Star Spinner Card Video & Peaceful Peachaven

Hello, Crafters.
What an absolutely lovely time I had in Peacehaven yesterday. It was a lovely group of ladies, and everybody enjoyed the three projects I'd arranged for them - especially the 3D project, as they received a bar of chocolate to go with it! 
Before I headed home, I stopped at the top of the cliffs to breathe in some lovely sea air and to enjoy the view - see photograph number 4!
This morning I uploaded my video called Shooting Star Slider Card. I'm so pleased at how this card turned out because it slides side to side brilliantly. 

I also found the Confetti Stars Border Punch really came into its own on this card as well!

The first card was without any additional stamping because I was concentrating on making sure the mechanics would work alright. See photograph 3. 

The big secret for success using the die from the Sliding Stars Framelits Dies is to  cut the "slide" as a smiley face not as a scowling face! On the video, I showed the difference in the quality of the slide between the two - you may be amazed!  

On the second card I made, I stamped some stars on the layer behind the slider as well as on the top layer using one hollow and one solid star from the Shooting Star Stamp Set.

I think it made my card look more interesting than the first card. See photograph 2.

I changed the stamped stars on the card I made on the video because I wasn't sure that I liked the hollow stars on card number 2. The stars I chose for this card are from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set and I'm really pleased with the effect! See photograph 1.

There are two other extras I put on card number 1, which you may have noticed in photograph 3. On the sentiment I adhered some of the Dapper Denim punched out hearts. I also added extra Delightful Dijon stars on the tail of the shooting star - I'm planning on adding extras to cards two and three as well!

In yesterday's post I shared one of the cards I'd planned for the Peacehaven ladies and said that I would arrange the ribbons slightly differently and share a photograph of it today - please see photographs 5. I much prefer the three straight lines, what do you think?

That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
