Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Lawn Fawn Magic Slider

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello crafters, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today for a new Studio Monday video! Have you tried out Lawn Fawn’s fun Magic Slider dies? These make the creating of slider cards SO easy! Today I am going to share this Fall-themed scene slider, which reveals a sentiment on the inside of the slider!

The Magic Slider dies can be used in a variety of ways. I wanted to use it to reveal the sky behind my scene, as well as the sentiment… I also love how the Push Here stamp set from Lawn Fawn allows you to add cute prompts on interactive cards for the recipient. Check out the reveal of the full scene below:

Isn’t that so cool!? All of the images I used in this card were from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Harvest stamp set and I colored everything with Copic markers. If you are interested in the colors I used, I have them listed below.

  • Scarecrow; B32, B23 (overalls), YR12, YR09 (shirt), Y15, Y38 (straw), E51, R00, E93, YR18 (face), E53, E55, E57, G24, G94 (hat), E59, E57 (stick)
  • Sunflowers: Y11, Y15, Y35 (petals), Y32, Y28, E55, E57, E59 (centers), YG05, YG25, YG09 (stems)
  • Pumpkins: Y38, YR16, E57

 

Because the main focus of the video was building the slider itself and not the scene piece-by-piece, I wanted to touch on a few of the scene/card details that I didn’t get to touch on in the video.

The grass areas were cut with Lawn Fawn’s Simple Grassy Hilldsides dies and I popped those up with foam tape off of the slider housing piece (the navy blue frame). I love how these have a sloped appearance to them!

The scene INSIDE the slider was very simple; I cut down a piece of blue cardstock with the rectangle included in the Magic Slider die set. Then with some clouds from Lawn Fawn’s Plane and Simple stamp set, I stamped the entire piece to make a cloudy sky. I used some pigment ink and an ink dauber and randomly added spots of white in the clouds; I didn’t bother to try and stay inside the lines for this.

The sentiment is stamped used two stamp sets; the thanks is from Happy Harvest and the “you’re awesome” is from  Plane and Simple. I heat embossed “thanks” and stamped the other sentiment in Indigo Bold ink from Hero Arts.

The cute plaid patterned paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Fall collection matched so well with the colors in my card! I cut my slider from this paper and I love how it looks.

I also stamped some of the wheat stalks from the Happy Harvest stamp set onto my Neenah Desert Storm card base and added some stitching details using My Favorite Things’ Basic Stitch Line dies.

I again want to quickly touch on one of my favorite aspects of the card; the cute “slide me” message! The Push Here stamp set from Lawn Fawn is a must have if you make a lot of interactive cards! I heat embossed this one onto orange cardstock.

I hope you will watch the video to see the Magic Slider dies used to make this cute Fall-themed thank you card! I’m so glad you stopped by and visited with me today; I’ll be back again very soon with a new tutorial to share with you!
