Blog Hop: Father’s Day

Dear Crafters,

AWHT Logo-001

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are presenting some fabulous Father’s Day ideas to inspire you. We also have our brand new 2015 Holiday Catalogue available from 1 September, with some amazing Christmas inspiration for you. Be sure to request a catalogue today!

You have come to my blog from the very talented, Genna Gifford.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project today is a Shutter Card using up some retired products; I just love these colours together. You can use any colours in the Stampin’ Up! product range and this card will be awesome. That’s what we love about our coordinating products!

Watch as you open the card to reveal the hidden message!

And I even made a coordinating envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

My next project is a Slider card, using the Guy Greetings stamp set and the Go Wild Designer Paper Series Paper Stack.

Pull the ribbon tab and reveal a special message and watch the vintage car move.

Magic Window Shutter Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card that is something a little bit different ~ it has a hidden message!

It is called a Shutter card or some call it a Magic Window card, but either way when you google it, you will find loads of instructions on the internet how to create one of your own.

The finished size of my card is 4″ x 4″.

Shutter Card #Stampin' Up!

I have used Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Pool Party as my colour combination. The new Designer Series Papers come in stacks in their colour families, eg. Subtles, Neutrals, Brights & Regals. Here I have used the Subtles stack.

You begin by creating a gatefold card.

You will notice when you open the card, a secret message is revealed!

Here is the card fully opened. The diamond in the centre opens wider as the card is opened. When you close the card the diamond becomes smaller to non-existent. It is such a clever technique, and I know I will be making many more of these cards!!!!

Please leave a comment below if you like my card.
