Hello and welcome to our March 2018 Release Blog Hop. This release includes 9 new Clear Stamp Sets and 5 sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 new stand alone Creative Dies, 2 new Stencils and 12 new Embellishments!
First of all I colored stamped Kobi and bouquet from Kobi’s Hugs & Kisses. Then cut them using coordinating dies. After that I cut square background and frame using Dotted Patterns: Nested Squares | Creative Dies.
Background I toned with blue distress inks and pink inks by Altenew. Next I applied Floral Trimmings stamps on vellum using white embossing and cut it to size of square background; stuck them together.
Next I stuck Kobi and bouquet on the right of square frame and put it all on foam tape. After that I cut rectangular background from white cardstock and stuck the square with vellum upon it. Covered it by frame with Kobi.
I used pink, yellow, mint colored Altenew inks to tone my workpiece. To cut out the window I took another die from Darling Ribbon Stamp; Dotted Frames. Stamped the figure of Kobi from Winter Kobi set and cup of coffee from new Sweet Latte set using Memento inks. And colored all elements with alcohol markers Copic Sketch and Touch Twin.

Stuck the sheet of transparent plastic above and the cover of card. Using white embossing powder and Watermark Stamp Pad I stamped “Sweet many thanks” sentiment and cut on a contour with scissors. Then stuck all the elements on frame and in the middle I place the sentiment using washy tape. Such a simple card it turned out.

And now, let me entroduce you my cards.
When I knew what kind of stamp set (Best Dad) will be the main in this Blog Hop, I realized that I will make interactive slider card and nothing else. But the thing that I couldn’t decide was how to decorate the front page. I considered a lot of options and spoiled a lot of paper before I found the suitable look. It’s the mirror frame and the imitation of bath tile around it. I am satisfied with my work because of its brevity and … interactivity)))
Here is the video of my card to show how it all works.
The second card, made with Extra Special and Wild Hibiscus stamp sets, came easy to me, like the flight of spring butterflies, that pictured on it.
Hope you have enjoyed watching. Now hop to the next blog. Bye-bye.
