Animation Trio from May SSS Kit

My first card is all about fluttering butterflies.   By using my square die set I created a film strip like effect for the motion section of the card.   The tiny butterflies are from a paper punch by Recollections, that I purchased at Michaels several years ago.  I also used a 3/4 " circle paper punch from EK Success to create the tab detail.   Though I rarely use punches these days, for this card I made use of two paper punches.  They were just the tool I needed.

For the card above I went with the heart theme from one of the patterned papers in the kit.  When the heart stamp from the kit is combined with the grid line acetate it seems to dance across the card.  Again I made use of the circle paper punch for the ends of my pull strip.  The frame for the motion feature was created using a Spellbinders die "Labels Twelve" combined with a square die.   The stitched line was added using a die from SSS "Bundle of Stitched Shapes".
This sentiment is one from Hero Arts called "Good Friends".   If you look closely you will see that I made a mistake on this one that I didn't notice until it was fully assembled.   The hearts on the patterned paper are upside down.

This last one is my favorite of the three.  I made a tag  using Die-namics "Tag Builder" that slides into a pocket with the grid acetate.  The vertical element makes a great place to add a fun greeting.  This one is made using a stamp and die set by Lawn Fawn called "Happy, Happy, Happy", really one of my favorites.

Going Wild With SSS April Kit

I have been making lots of children's cards lately and this month's kit from Simon Says Says is perfect for these cards and makes my card making time more like play time for me.  Love this newly released stamp set from the kit called "Wild Cuddly Critters" . 

I put the cute giraffe on a die cut tag for this first card.  All of the dies that I used for this card are in my supply list below.  This card and the one below will be going to the charity "Cards for Hospitalized Kids" .   This set is, also going to be great for making birthday cards for my many grand nieces and nephews.

The card above is a see thru shaker card.  The see thru shakerw have been showing up on online lately and I thought I would give it a try.  The shaker mix is one of my own creation from my stash of sequins.  I tried to make a mix that would match the colors in the card.
