Hello everyone! Eloise here and I'm here to show you my creation for this week. For the recent blog hop I just made a slider card and honestly, I just can't get enough. They're so much fun so I decided to just make a mini slider card today, since I wanted my fox to look like she's sweeping up the leaves. I'm using a mixture of stamp sets on my card today - I'm using the new Woodsy Creatures and Halloween Cuties, along with Harvest Happiness, Summer Picnic and Backyard Bugs. I love mixing in sets together!
To begin my card today I stamped out all the images on some watercolour paper and clear heat embossed the images. I used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers for todays colouring, since they're quick and easy and I knew I had a lot to colour! Once everything was coloured I used the coordinating dies to die cut all my images out.
Now it was time to work on the background. I used several Distress Inks to make this background along with a curved die - but you could just as easily use your scissors to cut the different layers. I made a blue layer, brown layer and green layer to make my scene feel complete. Once that was done I moved onto my slider portion. As I've done before I used a die to cut this - but since this one is super easy and is straight, you can just use a ruler and a craft knife. Once the slit was die cut out I used 2 circle dies to cut out some circles and used some foam tape piled up in between the two circles and that created my slider part. I did this twice also.
Now it was time to arrange my card and pull it all together. I first started with adhering all my leaves together to make a pile of them. I then used liquid adhesive for all the pieces since I knew my fox was going to be popped up because of the slider and I needed it to be able to go over all the images. Once everything was mainly stuck on I needed to adhere some of the extra leaves I had onto the broom - to give that look of sweeping and then I used a few extra smaller leaves that I had and stuck some of those down flat and some popped up as to show them falling from the tree. For a last finishing touch I stamped the sentiment 'autumn greetings' from the Woodsy Creatures set and white heat embossed it onto a black banner I die cut. I popped that up on the right hand side of my card and that finished it up.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and got inspired. Make sure you check back on the blog this week to see the other amazing cards the team will make!
