Wishing You the Hoppiest Birthday Ever - MFT December Hits & Highlights

How do you step up your cards with interactive elements? There are so many different techniques, but some of them are much more time consuming and require a lot of brainpower to bring your vision to life! If your next project requires a little bumpy action to make your scene come to life, you can’t beat the usefulness of the Movin’ & Groovin’ Die-namics options. This month, our team is sharing innovative ideas for integrating these action-packed dies into their projects.

Here you can see my card in action. I don't show the mechanics of card construction--you can see a great video showing how to construct a card with these Die-namics here. I didn't see any reason to reinvent this excellent wheel ;-)

I'm using Jumping Giraffe Stamp Set and Die-namics for the action figure. Watch him pogo his way across the card.

The sky was done with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Blue Yonder Dye Ink, and I added a sun cut with A2 Circle STAX Die-namics and Petite Clouds Die-namics.

Grassy Hills Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple card stock and sponged with Sour Apple dye ink gave me a place to stamp the sentiment and Mr. Giraffe a place to hop :) The image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers before being added to the scene.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by--see you soon!
