Mama Elephant Instagram Hop – Flying With Friends

January 21, 2019
Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be a part of the very first ever Mama Elephant Instagram Hop!  If you want to join in on the fun and see all of the crafty inspiration and have a chance to win some amazing prizes, head on over to my INSTAGRAM feed to get started!

I have a fun, interactive Double Slider Card today (see quick video below of card in action) that features the brand new and super adorable Flying With Friends Stamp Set.  This set can compliment the previously released Fly With Me Stamp Set or easily stand alone.  To start, I first stamped my images with black ink onto a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock.  I then used my Copic Sketch Markers to color them.

Colors Used:

  • Grey: C0, C1, C2, C4, C5
  •  Pink: RV000, RV52, RV55, RV66
  •  Green: G20, YG01, G24, YG67
  •  Teal: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG18
  •  Purple: V000, V01, V04, V06, V09
  •  White: 0, C00, C1, C2, C4

Once I was finished coloring my images, I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Here is a picture of what my card looks like prior to pulling on the interactive reverse slider tab.  To create the hidden slider, you can google videos on Double Slider Cards.  I simply used a craft knife to cut out my slider slots and a strip of a plastic bag for the mechanism itself.  When you pull on the tab, a little mouse with a purple balloon comes floating up out of the clouds!

I blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for my background sky and then added some clouds cut from white card stock using the Landscape Trio – Creative Cuts.  I used a double layer of 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to attach them to the base of my card (which measures 8.5″ x 3.5″).  Lastly, I added some small clouds from the Fly With Me Stamp Set that I had also lightly shaded with Copic Markers.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Don’t forget to head on over to INSTAGRAM to join the hop and see the amazing projects created by so many talented designers!
