Easy Peasy Double Slider Card:

Hi Folks,

It’s great to be back to my blog. It’s taken quite a time working with Microsoft Technical Support to resolve Malware issues on my PC. Fingers crossed, that’s all now sorted.

Anyhow, I thought I would share with you this fab card mechanism that I was shown about a year ago by my lovely Upline Clare McDonnell. I’ve actually made the card a little smaller than the original and my weekly classmates love it. I hope you like it.

Check out the video and full details below.

You can of course create your own design by using different cardstock and colours however if you do wish to copy mine, and you don’t already have these products, you need to check out my online shop ASAP as these products are retiring 2nd June.

For my customers with current S.U Catalogue, please remember that the catalogue retires on 2nd June, 2015 and not end of June.

The current Seasonal Catalogue also retires on that date.

So get shopping for those gorgeous Retiring items that you’ve just ‘got to have’ and enjoy the discounts too!!! 🙂

Swallowtail – perfectly romantic

Beautifully romantic image

Beautifully romantic image

Good evening my lovelies. I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I’ve been playing about with some new stamp sets and getting into the ‘romantic’ frame of mind. (easy on now lol)

The attached pics are of a little card made with the beautiful Swallowtail Stamp from Stampin Up. Check out my online shop for more detail.

http://card-crafts-by-lilli.stampinup.net

A simple, classy little card to make. Novice card makers will easily be able to make this and feel justifiably proud of their efforts. I have graded it as ‘medium’ skills simply due to the necessity for heat embossing that novice card makers may not have tried before. If you don’t wish to heat emboss, simply stamp using the classic ink pads however ensure to allow enough time for the ink to dry on the vellum as this can smudge.

I should point out that I cannot take credit for the original layout of this card as I know I’ve seen it somewhere else before however I can’t remember where so I’m unable to direct credit to the appropriate person at this point in time.

NB: – For reference; I’ve listed every single Stampin Up item used to make this card however most card makers will already have the basic tools etc required for making this card.

Enjoy!
