Punch Art Slider Snowgirl


I was really excited when Peachy Keen came out with the newest set of face stamps called Piles of Smiles. This set is available in both a 1" and 3/4" size, perfect for punch art!  The set contains all of my favorite faces from the past few Stamp of the Month sets.  You will definitely want to add the PK-146 Piles of 1" Smiles to your collection.   Check out this awesome assortment!

Here is my card with the slide in both positions.  If the instructions I provide are not detailed enough, you can check out the original double slider tutorial at the Splitcoast Stampers site HERE.  Obviously I modified the card to show my pop up character on the front instead of a sentiment.


Supplies:
Note: all punches, ink pads and card stocks used are from Stampin' Up!

1-3/8" Circle, Full Heart, Boho Blossoms, Cupcake Builder, Modern Label, 1/2" Circle, Word Window punches
Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi, Shimmery White card stocks
Designer papers of choice
Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Not Quite Navy, Garden Green ink pads
Pentel white gel pen, quicky glue pen, dazzling diamonds glitter
Dimensionals, sticky strip, tombow liquid glue

Instructions:
Step 1
To create the girl, punch the following pieces:
(1) 1-3/8" Circle from pink pirouette - HEAD
(2) Cupcake Builder (top) from chocolate chip - HAIR
(3) Modern Label from polkadot print - SCARF
(1) Full Heart from red print - HAT
(1) 1-3/8" Circle from red print - BODY
(6) Boho Blossoms from Shimmery White - HAT
(2) 1/2" Circles from cherry cobbler - MITTENS

Stamp the face with basic blank ink.  Color in whites of eyes with gel pen.  Color pink onto nose with blender pen and stipple/sponge pink onto cheeks.  Sponge edge of head with pretty in pink ink.


Step 2
Glue hair onto sides of head.  Glue hat onto top of head.  Glue 5 boho blossoms along hat brim and add blossom with dimensional to top of hat.  Glue head onto body.  Cut one modern label in half and glue at neck.  Glue other modern labels onto scarf at neck.


Step 3
Cut bashful blue cardstock 4-1/4" x 11" and fold in half.  Using word window punch, align side of punch at score line and slide towards center of card as far as it will go and punch.  


Step 4
Repeat step 3 on other side so you have 2 slots side by side.  Punch four 1/2" circles from scrap card stock. Add a dimensional to the center of 2 circles.  On each slot, place dimensional into slot from back and attach other 1/2" circle to create sliding circles.


Step 5
For the slider card, cut a piece of wild wasabi 3-1/2" x 5-3/8".  Decorate top of card as desired (keep in mind how much will show when card is assembled).  Glue 1-3/8" punched circle folded in half at top of card.  With the card base open and slots positioned on bottom half, lay card onto top half.  Add glue to the two slider circles and close card.  The circles will stick to the slider card.  Allow glue to dry.



Step 6
Open card back up and add sticky strip along outer edges as shown.  Close card to adhere sides.


Step 7
On front of card, glue snow girl body to one of the sliding circles.


Step 8
Cut a 3-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of Shimmery white card stock and tear along the top.  Apply glue and glitter along top torn edge.  Attach to front of card (along side and bottom edges) with dimensionals.  Tear several other pieces of shimmery white card stock.  Add glitter to edges and layer onto front of card to create "snow bank".  The snow bank should cover most of the girl.  Attach mittens at top of snowbank on each side of girl.  Stamp a greeting onto the front of card.  Note: I changed the design of my sliding card after the pictures were taken. Adding layers to the top of sliding card has a tendency to "catch" the upper edge of the card base when sliding in and out.

Peachy Keen October Release

October brings on another adorable and heartwarming Stamp of the Month set from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I've always had a soft spot for little furry critters, so this set instantly captured my heart!  Check out the sweet little chipmunk in this set.  Of course, there is a selection of fun faces and coordinating greetings to top it off.  The Peachy Picks paper kit has a wonderful selection of fall color papers and embellishments.  If you have been thinking about joining the club, now would definitely be the time!

My first card features stamps from the Stamp of the Month set and papers from the Peachy Picks kit.  Be sure to come back tomorrow to see all of the images in the new sets coming out.  Oh, and I'm so excited that a new face set is coming out that you will all definitely want to have!!!

For my second card, I used a stamp from another new release set called Lil' Tweets Thanksgiving.
