let’s get moving

This week has been just flying by. So much for lazy summer days. I guess it’s so much easier to have them when you’re the child rather than the mother. I’m looking forward to some lazy days at the cottage once hubby can get a few days off work.

It’s Thursday again and time for another Ways to Use it Challenge.  This time it’s going to be more of a Ways to MOVE it challenge. I’m challenging you to find ways t o make your cards interactive and have moving parts. I chose a rather simple idea with making moving wheels on this sweet little Hero Arts bike stamp. You might want to make it more complex. How about a pop up card? Perhaps you could have an envelope that you had to open for the sentiment. However you decide to move it, I hope you’ll play along with us today. Find the challenge here.

Let’s Catch Up


Quick Tip: To get the wheels to turn smoothly I place two tiny washers on the brad between the two paper layers.  This also pops the wheels up slightly.


Supplies: kraft and white cardstock by Bazzill, twine, patterned paper by Crate Paper, Leaf Trinket Pins by Maya Road, Bicycle stamp by Hero Arts, sentiment from Oceans of Joy stamp set by Hero Arts, Jet Black Archival Ink by Ranger, Memento and Tombow markers, flocked brads by Doodlebug Design, Clear Glaze Pen by Sakura, White Opaque Pen by Ranger, Tim Holtz Washers

Happy creating!
