Welcome to the Lawn Fawn Summer Release May Inspiration Week! Today I am so excited to share with you my favorite die set from the Summer Release, the Magic Color Slider Die Set! If you've been wanting to create a magic color slider card easily (because I have tried the old fashioned way and failed!) this die set is for you, and me, and for everyone! Color sliders are all the rage and this set is phenomenal and I can't wait to show you how I've used it for my card share today! Let's jump in, shall we?! (No sharks will bite, I promise!)
For the background, I die cut a piece of the new Lawn Fawn Moonstone Cardstock with an Outside In Stitched Rectangle Die and then used the Ocean Wave Dies to create wave "slots" in the background. I inked up the edges of the panel with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and then spritzed the cardstock with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted it dry with a paper towel. Once dry, I stamped the "Duh-Nuh" greeting from the Duh-Num Stamp Set all over the background with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.
I stamped the shark fins and fish from the Duh-Nuh Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink, colored the images in with Copic Markers and then die cut them with the coordinating Duh-Nuh dies. I tucked the images in the die cut Ocean Wave Accents and then secured the entire panel to a white top fold card base.
For the Magic Color Slider, I die cut the slider and slider track from Moonstone Cardstock, the background and slider from smooth white cardstock, and the window transparency panel.
On the background panel and transparency panel (both cut from the same die), I stamped images from Duh-Nuh and Fintastic using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink for the smooth white cardstock and StazOn Black Ink for the transparency. I used the MISTI to perfectly line up the images. It's super important when you're creating a magic color slider that the images on the window and the images revealed line up perfectly. The images on the white panel were colored in with Copic Markers.
***TIP * When creating these Magic Color Slider cards, use masking or only stamp on the background (inside scene) of the magic slider. You won't want to use die cut or other dimensional items because the slider track won't move well with any dimension.
Assemble the magic color slider as shown in the video below. I stamped the "slide me" greeting from the Push Here Stamp Set at the top of the tap of the slider so the recipient knows the card is interactive.
On the front acetate window of the slider I added some Simon Says Stamp Eyes On You Shape Stickers and Glossy Accents to the water bubbles. By adding those dimensional elements to the window instead of inside the slider, you still have the fun dimension but the slider doesn't catch on anything! Plus you see the fun eyes and bubbles even when the slider is closed!
The Magic Color Slider was adhered to the front of the card and a banner was die cut from Blue Jay Cardstock using a Magic Color Slider die and stamped with greetings from the Duh-Nuh Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder!
