Polar Fun Slider Cards

 Hello friends!  I just gotta say what an incredible honor it is to wake up to an email like I did today from Gail S., sharing with me that she was inspired by one of my interactive cards and she gave it a go!  How FUN is that?!!  Gail created this fun SLIDER card featuring the Polar Fun digi set in the shop and followed my video tutorial here.  So I (Kris) joined her today, using the same set in a slimline version this time.  

Let's take a look at Gail's card first...


How CUTE is that?!!  Gail sponged a beautifully sunny sky, added a couple glistening snowflakes and even added some glitter to this sitting penguin's earmuffs, feet and beak (precolored images were printed) I just love this!  

I had a li'l play with her photos and created this fun video too...

 
You can hop to Gail's Blog to see her card details HERE.

And here is my Slimline version of the penguin slider....


and of course... a li'l snowy video ta-boot :)  

 
 Remember to enter our Digi-of-the-Month Challenge HERE before the end of October to receive November's set in your inbox!

Thanks so much for looking today!  Happy Crafting ♥

Fun with Magic Iris Cards

 Hi friends!  I've been at it again... creating with this month's Digi-of-the-Month, "Lizzy's Umbrella"!  This time I created a Magic Iris card where the iris opens up to reveal a hidden message, and then Lizzy and her cute li'l ducky friend pops up when you open the card!  Take a look...


You might recognize the image on the front of my card -- it's called Piggy Tulip Boot PlanterI printed it out and colored with Copics, cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals.  

For inside the magic iris, I printed a sentiment and rainbow from this month's DOTM set, Lizzy's Umbrella.  

For the inside of my card (pic below), I printed off the girl and duck image (also from this month's set)  and created a li'l pop up tab and taped behind her so she pops up when you open the card. :)  What do ya think?


You can find more details and a list of my supplies for all 3 cards on my blog HERE.

New- Truckin' Pupkins

Happy Fall y'all!  This is my latest digi in the shop and is on sale for a limited time (only $2.99)!


I colored the outline image with Copics, including the ground and shadow.  Then I masked the image and blended ink using blending brushes in shades of yellow, pink and purple.  Added some white highlights.  

In this digi set, you get the truck without a sentiment on the sign, then 5 different sentiments that fit on it so you can choose which sentiment you'd like for it to say!  OH... and in case you didn't get the title... they are PUPS, so I had a fun play on words... instead of Truckin' Pumpkins, it's PUPkins!  Heehee.  

Head on over and get your cute digi stamp set for only $2.99 for the next few days only!!  


Happy INKing!
