Okay, I'll stop with the plays on words now... ;)
WELCOME to the November new release MFT Blog Hop! If you're arriving here from the very special Melody Rupple's Blog (who has some very exciting news to share, by the way), you're all set! Otherwise, you should start from the beginning at Kim's blog and check out all the eye candy along the way! Hidden along the way is some blog candy for you too, so it's totally worth your while!
As promised, I'm back with pictures of my other project that I made for this week's HTDT Tutorial in the MFT forum on SCS. In case you missed my earlier blog post today, the tutorial is on using your MFT clear stamps to stamp on acetate! I have some hints and tips to share as well as two fun projects that you can make with step-by-step instructions! So if you haven't yet, head on over there as soon as you're done hopping! :)
Tonight I want to share with you a super fun way to send someone a greeting! Remember when you were a kid and there were those things that came in magic kits that had a picture that would miraculously turn to color when you pulled on the tab? I feel like no one knows what I'm talking about, but I'm sure as soon as you see my card, it'll jog your memory. Magic cards are so fun (and surprisingly not that hard) to put together!
Here's the card:
And here's this baby in action!
When you slide the tab up, Flopsey immediately appears in front of you in full color! And when you slide it back down, he returns to the original, paler version on himself. Abracadabra! Presto Change-o! Cool, right?
The slider tab also comes completely out of the card, if you want to display it as two pieces...
or you can slide the whole slider piece into the front part of the card, to always display Flopsey in his full-color glory!
Remember, there are full instructions over at the tutorial, so you can make one of these yourself! So try it out! I'd love to see what you come up with!
I wanted to show you one more thing before I go...a close-up of my blinged-out letters for the card front:
My goal was to make the letters look like they were lit up by Christmas lights. I colored in each empty hole with brightly-colored Copic Spicas. Then I topped each one off with a dab of Glossy Accents. I think they make pretty good Christmas lights, eh? :)
