Isabel Cristina Stamps - Howdy - Double Slider Card

mercredi 13 février 2019

Hello there,

Today I'm very happy to share with you this double slider card showcasing a brand new digital stamp set by Isabel Cristina Stamps called Howdy.

When you purchase and download Isabel digital sets, they always come with easy print pages. So i first started by printing it on Neenah solar white cardstock using my Epson XP 225 printer.

I cut the elements I wanted to use and colored them using my spectrum noir markers.

Next i built the slider. I die cut 2 pocket pieces, one track piece and 2 panel pieces, all from bristol cardstock.  I folded along the score lines on both pocket pieces, used my bone folder to get sharp edges and then applied 3mm double sided tape on the thin tabs. I took the track piece and applied the same tape at the top and bottom, and did the same thing at the back.

Next I took a poop bag from my dog, cut a 2.25 inches strip and attached it around the track piece.

I applied tape on the seam of the plastic strip, turned the track piece and did the same thing but at the opposite side.

I die cut another pocket piece and another panel piece from bristol cardstock and used them to die cut hill borders. And next one more pocket piece and one more panel piece to die cut grass borders that coordinates with the hill borders.

Now some colors. I took my homemade cloud stencil and peacock feathers distress ink to create the sky on the three panels. To color the grass borders I used shabby shutters and peeled paint distress inks. I covered the whole border with the light green and applied the dark one the top only. For the hill borders I used antique linen as a base and gathered twigs to darken it and make shadows.

When all the elements were colored I attached them on the sky panels using double sided tape.

Next I assembled everything. I took the track piece, removed the back of the tape, aligned it with my grid mat and then attached the right panel. Turned the track piece and did the same thing with the other panel. I took the pocket pieces and attached them together. And before I forgot I die cut notches on the left and right sides of the pocket pieces.

Next I removed the back of the tape at the back of the track piece, made sure everything was aligned, and attached it inside the pocket piece. Removed the remaining tapes and closed the pocket.

I run the slider a couple of times to make it was working smoothly and from craft cardstock I die cut two pull tabs that I attached on the sides.

I cut a card base out of kraft cardstock, and die cut a scalloped rectangle from cream cardstock and a stitched rectangle from plaid paper. I attached those three elements on top of each other, and then the slider panel. And finally all the images were attached using glue dots.

  1. This is really fun, Marine. I especially love how you created the slider yourself and used a stencil for the clouds. An excellent reminder that we don't have to always get the dies! Your coloring is wonderful and the scene is just adorable. Excellent work that makes me smile.

  2. Oops! I goofed. Watching your video...see you used dies. Which is terrific. I just incorrectly thought you didn't use dies. Still...fantastic card! :)

    1. Thank you, Jeanne! Yes this die set is really amazing but I think it's possible to build that kind of card without it, it may not be too difficult, maybe I should try some day ^^
