Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Sticker Slider Card + Hopping Along Card Kit!
Hello everyone and Happy Monday! As most of you know, we released our latest, Special Edition Card Kit called Hopping Along last Thursday. I thought this would be a perfect thing to feature this week for Studio Monday; so I am going to use the kit and show you how to make a sticker slider card!
As a note, the Card Kit has sold out but most of the items are available for individual purchase. You’ll find them all listed at the bottom of this post.
There are a bunch of fun stickers included in this Special Edition Kit from Doodlebug; I used the Easter Express stickers and Bunny Shape Sprinkles today. I paired them with the Train Track slider die, which is the CUTEST slider die ever! The slider die is actually shorter than it appears in my card; in the video I will be showing how I used the partial die cutting technique to lengthen it for this card!
Because I love creating scenes, I wanted to do that with the elements I was using in my card. And all of the items in the kit make it even easier to do just that! This is one of my favorite aspects about every Simon Card Kit; all of the items are hand selected with the intent that they can be used interchangeably with one another. You can also get creative with the uses of the items in the kit… let me show you how!
I was able to use the pattern papers (from Doodlebug) to make my grass and the Sea Glass metallic envelope for the clouds. The subtle, metallic shimmer of the Sea Glass envelope adds the perfect amount of interest to the sky. I also tinted the grass a matching green color to make it a bit more subtle. The dies I used were the Grassy Hills from My Favorite Things and our Simon Says Stamp Happy Days dies.
The Easter Express stickers were easily turned into “faux die cuts” by attaching them to transparency sheets. You could also have used white cardstock instead. Aren’t those bunnies adorable???
I also used the Bunny Sprinkles Shapes stickers to add flowers and carrots to my scene! The carrots were turned into “faux die cuts” too, which added some additional dimension and separation from other elements in the scene.
For the simple sentiment, I used the mini Easter Greetings stamp set and heat embossed it onto some yellow Simon Says Stamp cardstock. The card base was created with some of the Sea Glass cardstock included in the kit.
I hope this video provides inspiration to you for creating some fun cards with our Hopping Along Card Kit! Be sure to check out the video below to see how this card came together.

It looks very cute, I’m sure it will be interesting for any child! It’s great that now you can make stickers for both adults and children, in any version. Just to get started, what’s the difference between kiss cut and die cut stickers? And then you can come up with anything you want
