As I write this, we embark on the beginning of school holidays here in Western Australia. It’s been a rollercoaster of a term – moving through the phases of social distancing, adapting to a new way of interacting everywhere we go and becoming comfortable within a transitioning world where COVID is both a threat and no threat at all. There has been a lot of change over the past 15 weeks – which is how long we’ve been participating in these Social Stamping Blog Hosts, and seemed like a good theme to finish the COVID series of Social Stamping Blog Hosts. You can see all the themes, the full participant list and the final goodbye to the COVID series by clicking here.
Like all humans, I like a little certainty in life, but I am actually not adverse to change. In many areas of my life I like and welcome change that serves a purpose. Change can be a really positive thing. Without change, we cannot move forward, we cannot progress.
Change brings us new catalogues and new products – which we all find exciting! Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators got access this week to the upcoming August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue. That’s the kind of change we can get on board with! I’ve placed a sneaky order and will share some of my new catalogue favourites soon. Until then, I’m having fun sharing some Annual Catalogue newbies, like the Moving Along stamp set.
When thinking about a project that highlighted change, I couldn’t go past a Magic Slider card.
When you pull the tab on the right, the panel moves and reveals more images and the helicopter magically changes colour!
This style of card is great for kids cards and this stamp set is perfect for little engine lovers!
A Stamparatus is a must to be able to make this card. You’ll also need Window Sheets and StazOn ink. I found this video super helpful to breakdown the instructions. I’ve made this type of card before, but there’s a few steps, so it helps to have a refresher on the technique.
Here’s a video showing the card in action…
Thank you for hopping with us today. Click on the next button to keep ‘moving along’ and enjoy the change of scenery at Nicole Wilson’s blog!
Although this is the last in the COVID series for Social Stamping, we’ll be continuing on the last Saturday of each month with more Social Stamping blog hops, each featuring a popular sentiment or greeting theme.
Have a great weekend, and if you have small people at home – a wonderful school holidays!
