My First Slider Card!
I made my first slider card and sent it soaring using one of the Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up stamp set sentiments. Using Stampin’ Up! stamps and dies was a BIG help while I was learning how to make a slider card. There is something just a little magical about Stampin’ Up! products. They work so well together even when they come from entirely different sets or catalogs. For example to make this card, I used the Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Stamp Set, the Up & Away Framelits dies and the Sliding Star Framelits dies. They combined perfectly to create the sliding balloon. The decorative paper is the Carried Away Designer Series Paper from the 2017 Sale-A-Bration event. I really liked the map-like image on the bottom of the card front as the balloon soars overhead.
Stampin’ With Pixie Tips and Ideas
- Did you know that each set of Stampin’ Up! decorative paper is packaged with a list of coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors? I am definitely not the best at coordinating colors. That little list on each pack of decorative paper helps me so much!! I know what cardstock and ink colors to use. I can relax and have fun creating knowing that they will look great together!
- You can create a “sponged sky” background for your card by die cutting a cloud image and using it as a mask. Die cut the image using a post-it note so that it is easily repositionable. Adhere the image to your blank background cardstock. Use a Stamping Sponge to daub the Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink of your choice lightly around the image. Reposition the image and repeat as many times as you like to create the sky.
- To create the decorative paper hills, I traced the edge of a curved die onto the paper and then fussy cut inside the line to create the slopping shape. I layered two of these fussy cut shapes to create the hills.
