Welcome everyone to another Global Trip Achievers Blog Hop! This month the theme is our new FAVORITE  thing from the New Catalog that just went live on June 1st, 2017.

Gosh, so many!

I loved the This Little Piggy stamp set, I mean, really.

How cute is this little piggy?

Adorable!

So that set was really high on the list.

I decided this blog post should include my new little friend.

But there was one thing I was really anxious to try out and it turned out to be just as cool as I had hoped.

You Move Me Photopolymer Bundle 145322 Price: $49.50

It was the You Move Me Photopolymer Bundle.

This bundle was demonstrated when I was at the Stampin’ Up! Global Onstage in Amsterdam in April.

WOW!  HOW COOL!

And I have been waiting (not so patiently) to play ever since!

I have always loved cards that are a little bit out of the norm, and cards with some kind of ‘motion’ certainly meet that criteria!

So I combined my 2 new favorite things into a super card that makes you smile.

If it doesn’t make you smile, I am worried about you, but I just know it will!

Here is the card in motion!

So, how did I do it?

 

I figured out how to combine the 2 stamp sets!

First I stamped the butterfly wings on a scrap piece of cardstock, and trimmed the top left of the wing off.

I had stamped stamped and sponged the card components including my little pig without her own wings.

It was, however, easy to take my portion of the butterfly wings and stick it onto my little piggy.

There was LOTS of playing with this technique.  let’s face it, not everything works to have the butterfly wings stuck on it like my little piggy.

But LOTS of things would be cool in motion!

I played and tried things and threw lots of attempts away but I figured it out.

And I learned TONS of things along the way that I have consolidated into a PDF along with measurements and other projects.  No need for you to spend as long figuring this out as I did, just benefit from all my trials.

Here is a sneak peek of the other projects I have right now, and the pdf will have the details on both of these.

And while I am on one of my favorite subjects… doggies, there are just some stamps that NEED to have motion added to them!

I recently did a post using the Bella and Friends stamp set, and it was begging to have motion added!

So here is that motion card as well.

Like I said, I have created a PDF with lots of pics and tips of what I learned playing with the You Move Me bundle and other stamp sets.  Get the benefit of my many, MANY hours of crafting trial and error by purchasing the PDF for $8.00 USD.

Good News!  When you purchase from the link above, it is now automated to send you an email with the download info for the tutorial.  Another learning experience, but I got it working before I left on the trip.  Now I won’t be a delay at all, yay!
