Magical Fairy with Hidden Slider
by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  I hope everyone is enjoying the slider week so far!  I have really enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful and fun designs.  I've always loved sliders, but they have seemed intimidating to me, so I never tried one until now.  I'm so glad I did!  They are not at all as difficult as I had imagined.  Super easy and fun.  I used the Straight Slider Grooves craft dies to create the slider track.

The slider track on this card is hidden behind the front frame.  The ribbon on the right pulls the message tab out, moves the fairy, and also reveals colorful dots of "Show" along the way!


When closed, there are no colors, but as the fairy slides along, colorful dots of "snow" are revealed along the way.



The Wintertime Fairies set is so cute and has so many possibilities.  I can't wait to incorporate more of these adorable designs perfect for sider cards!


Video for the slider card below shows how to incorporate the basic idea of this slider card mechanism into your dies and design ideas:

Sliding Into Fall with Poppystamps
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Sept 8 Slider Full

It's almost Fall and I'm still wondering where this year has gone! My Fall slider card features the new Autumn Fairies stamp and die sets and the Slider Grooves die set.

PS Sept Slider CU1

My Fall leaves are from the Stitched Maple and Oak Trio die sets. I used the large leaves, left over from my Fall wreath project, on the bottom of my card.

PS Sept Slider CU2

The Autumn Fairie and Acorn appear to fall into the pile of leaves. My sentiment, from the Autumn Fairies stamp set, was heat embossed onto a piece of chocolate cardstock.

PS Sept Slider CU3

The following video will show you how to assemble this slider card AND just to let you know...this is the first slider card I have made! It was much easier than I thought it would be, so give a slider card a try! 


Thanks for stopping by!

Under the Sea Slider
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everybody!

We are so glad you could join us this week for our amazing Slider Week from September 2-12! Today, I am showing you a card I created with the Straight Slider Grooves! Take a look!


The Straight Slider Grooves are so easy to work with, and give you so many options too!  The set contains three separate, straight grooves in three different lengths. I used the smallest groove to create the three channels for my cheerful jellyfish. Up and down they go, happily bobbing in the sea!


Creating the jellyfish was the easiest part! I used the I'm a Narwhal Stamp set to stamp the jellyfish on cardstock, then I colored them with copic markers. After I cut them out with the I'm a Narwhal die set, I added a tiny circle on the back, then adhered the jellyfish to another tiny circle on the other side of the slider groove. Not only do the jellyfish move up and down, but they spin in a circle too! The background panel was created with Distress Oxide Inks and water droplets.


This will make a fun card for my sister, who lives in Florida, where you can find jellyfish of all sizes! Do you know someone who loves the sea? They would love a fun jellyfish slider created by you!

Thanks so much for joining us today! Check back all week long to find tons of great inspiration and ideas for our super exciting Slider Week from September 2 -12! Be sure to leave a comment and you might be randomly selected to win your choice of a Poppystamps Clear Stamp set and coordinating die set, and a Memory Box Slider Grooves Die!

Wintertime Fairies Slider Card
by Nancy Penir


Hi there! Nancy here, and I have an interactive card to show you today. It's Slider Week at Poppy, and Memory Box has released a new die set to help you create a slider.


The set offers 4 sizes and shapes, and is used with your stamps. Let me show you.

If you've never done a slider card, You Tube has several videos and how-to's. My slider is made with 2 pieces of foam fit together within the cutout, and attached to my fairy. A pulltab with ribbon slides the image through the slide.


The stamp set I used is from the darling new Wintertime Fairies, (coming soon!) and has a coordinating set of matching dies.


The sweet holiday fairies set has 3 fairies in different poses. I stamped, cut and colored my fairies and images first, 

and created my background card base from Distress Oxide Inks. On the bottom of the card I created a stencil by tearing a piece of paper in the shape of a hill before spritzing it with white spray. 


The scene has the flying fairy starting at one end of the card, and flying to the other end, lighting the Christmas lights banner.


I hope you enjoyed my slider post today. Remember to check back to see how each designer  used this useful and fun die set!

And don't forget to leave a comment to win a stamp set of your choice. Good luck!

Little Kindness With Slider Groves
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi! Marybeth here with a new die from Memory box called Slider Groves! Its a fun way to make this little bee from the Poppystamps  : (Little Kindness Clear Stamp) set, bumble around. It's so cute to see the bee tumbling around the blooms on the card!


After I assembled my little Slider Grooves die  onto the card I also cut , fun foam backing to raise the panel to give it movement. I added more fun foam to the back then trimmed as needed.


 I stamped my images in a light colored ink.The pretty blooms and leaves were colored in with Zig Brush pens .


This is showing you a few of the colors I used and the water brush pen. I also added a bit of shimmer with Wink of Stella.

Narwhal Slider
by Jeanne Jachna


Thanks for stopping by!  I've got some SUPER EXCITING NEWS to share!  Our parent company, Memory Box, has introduced new slider dies!  We'll be showing projects made with sliders  September 2-12.   You'll see designs from each of the design team members using several different Poppystamps images.  We've got a little candy to share too -I'll tell you more at the end of this post. 

I'll be honest.. I've never made a slider card before.  I've seen tutorials where you have to do a bit of measuring and cutting with a craft knife and it all seemed a bit complicated to me.   The Memory Box slider die made this a quick and simple process.  And if I can do it so can you!
I wanted to create an underwater scene for the I'm A Narwhal images.  I was concerned about the area that would peek through the cut grove for the slider so I made two identical patterns with distress ink.  It was easier to work on two panels at the same time so I could repeat the process  one step at a time.  I inked in Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron.  I added Salty Ocean around the outer edges of the panel.  I spritzed each panel with water, and then spritzed it again with some watered down Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  The finishing touch was a splash of white ink.
I attached one of the panels to my card base.    A little planning is important!   I laid out all the images on the second panels to decide where each image would go before I cut the slider groove.     I didn't want the sliding narwhal to cover any of the other images as it moved along the groove.    To attach the narwhal in the slider goove, I cut a small rectangle of foam adhesive tape to fit in the groove easily.  I attached a penny to the reverse side, and the narwhal die cut on the front.   Next I adhered the entire front panel to my card base with adhesive foam tape.  You need the open space between the two panels to allow the slider to move.        
Now it's time to adhere the rest of the images in the scene.   I kept some flat (the small fish), and raised the rest with foam tape to add dimension.

This  card is so fun and was so easy to make!   I know I'll be making lots more now that I've given it a try! 

Do you love interactive slider cards?  Maybe you're new to this technique just like me!   As mentioned, we'll be showing you more slider projects through the 12th.  And we've got a special prize to give away!  At the end of our slider event,  we're going to randomly choose one comment that was left on any of the posts featuring sliders as a prize winner.  The more posts you comment on the better your chance of winning.   You have until 12 am US EST September 13 to leave comments on the posts. 

The prize will be....

  • Winner's choice of any one Poppystamps Clear Stamp Set
  • The Coordinating Dies for the Stamp Set of your choice
  • And  a Memory Box Slider Grooves Die

So please leave me a comment!  That's how you can enter to win!
