Gang’s All Meer Double Slider Easel Card

Hey Guys,

I’m sure that you have seen around the Double Slider Easel Cards, I saw them too, and tried my hand at it! Using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was a no brainer for me. They are so stinkin’ cute! Plus, the sentiment says “Happy Birthday to a STAND-UP friend”, thought it would be perfect to have a stand up card! LOL

Also I used the SU! set Mountain Air, because I thought they would make a great backdrop for those adorable MeerKats! The Belly band is stamped with the cactus and colored with Blends. I tried so hard to find a fitting Designer Series Paper (DSP) that would fit with these cuties, but alas I couldn’t! So, what is a crafter to do? Make their own DSP! 🙂

Here is my card, you’ll see a few pics since I want to show you all the angles:

This can open fuller, the sentiment is on the pull out. Can you see that this is open on it’s own?

Cute right? I like it, depending on what everyone says at my classes is whether or not we make this in a class. It’s a little over the top, meaning it takes some time to get all the pieces together and put in the right place. BUT, it was super fun once I got the gist of it! Thanks go to Frenchie for her video! I may make a video if you would like to see it, just let me know!

Here’s a GREAT Masculine card!

Hey Guys!

I know that you must think that I have backslid from my promise that I would continue posting. Two weeks ago, I went to Disney World with my family and near the end of our trip, I got sick. 🙁 Ends up, that my husband and Son got the flu, thankfully I ‘think’ I just got a cold. I’ve been trying to catch up on making cards so I can show them to you!

Here is the first card I made when I came back……. I was thinking that I wanted to play with the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called By the Dock…..but I also thought that the dimensions of the set would work great with the set Best Catch. And it did! It totally looks like they are from the same set! Ya think?

Don’t you think the little fish peaking out at the fisherman is so cute?! I had to chuckle when I decided to put him in. Water scenes are one of my favorite things to stamp. Not sure if it’s because I was brought up fishing with my dad, or any kind of water just makes me calm and happy.

Here are the specifics for this card:

By the Dock
A Good Man (for the sentiment)
Best Catch

Night of Navy
Pacific Point
Early Espresso (all stamps were inked with this ink)
Blends: Dark/Light Crumb Cake, Ivory, Balmy Blue for rings around man/fish
White Gel pen

Night of Navy 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
Seaside Spray 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap for sentiment

Classic Label punch
1″ circle punch (for moon)
Post-It Removable Labeling Tape (for making horizon and moon)
Mini Dimensionals
