A Magic Iris Camera Card with Christy!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Interactive Challenge. I had so much fun playing with the Magic Iris Camera Add-on! This die really takes the Magic Iris to a whole new level!

I started by stamping out a little scene using Ocean Shell-fie and coloring it in with my Copic markers. Then I set that aside and built the Magic Iris mechanism using Narwhal cardstock and made sure that was in good working order.

Once I had those two pieces done, it was time to start building my camera. I die cut that out of Narwhal cardstock as well, then used a strip of Hello Sunshine Remix patterned paper to brighten up the center. I added a strip of Dolphin cardstock to the bottom for some contrast. I added a record button by gluing a tiny square of Raspberry cardstock behind the hole on the left, and used Sticky Note for the flash. And I used Mermaid and Dolphin cardstock for the pull tab and shutter button.

I stamped my little sentiment with Jet Black Ink, then glued the Magic Iris to the back of the finished camera, and my scene to the back of the Magic Iris. I adhered some aqua blue Spiffy Speckles patterned paper to my Mermaid card base, then added my Magic Iris Camera over top. To finish off the card, I added a bunch of images and another sentiment to the inside with Peacock Ink.

And then comes the best part! When you get to pull on the tab and reveal the adorable Ocean Shell-fie critters! So fun.

This kind of card is really best showcased in a video, so I’ve created a tutorial for you on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. I really hope you enjoy it! And if you feel inspired to play along in our Interactive Challenge, you still have time! It’s open until Sunday, July 5th at 11:59PM ET. Have a great day. 🙂

A Pull-Tab Pop-Up Card with Samantha!

Hi Fawnatics friends! Samantha Mann joins us today to share a cool interactive pull tab card featuring the critters of RAWRSOME!

Samantha created an amazing inked backdrop for this cute prehistoric scene using Stitched Hillside Borders. She cleverly used the balloons from Really High Five as the “lava” on the volcano! When the volcano erupts with the help of the Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On the balloons become a birthday surprise! Samantha added amazing color to these images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

To learn about how to use the Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On die, check out the intro video at our YouTube channel. There is also a playlist for great pull-tab card ideas, click HERE.

Thank you so much for sharing this truly fantastic inspiration with us, Samantha!

The Interactive Card Challenge will be open until Sunday, July 5th at 11:59PM ET. We are loving all the amazing creativity we are seeing in the challenge gallery!

Mayra’s Interactive Toy Story Trio of Cards

Hi Fawnatics friends! Today we are featuring three amazing interactive cards by our talented Guest Designer, Mayra to inspire your creativity!

Mayra created this trio of fabulous cards with a Toy Story theme! She made a Magic Iris card, a shaker/slider card and an adorable pop-up design! I love how Mayra used tiny clouds from Pivot Pop-Up to decorate the Andy’s room scene on the cover of the pop-up card! How cute that she included the desk from You’re Just My Type!

Mayra combined images from lots of different sets to create this amazing western scene! In the background are Stitched Mountain Borders, then Stitched Hillside Borders with some cute cactus from Stuck on You and Year Ten! The sheriff office is created using the Build-A-House die set and the water hole is the Stitched Pond! Check out the supply list below for all the sets used on these cards!

The Magic Iris opens behind the Andy’s room scene to reveal the western sheriff’s office! Mayra included lots of the Toy Story characters including RAWR as Rex, Buzz is the astronaut from Out of This World, Hamm is from Hay There, the little alien from Beam Me Up and of course Woody and Jessie are from Screen Time!

This fun slimline design depicts Pizza Planet! You’re Claw-some is filled with the little aliens. The claw slides back and forth to grab the aliens. The Sweet Smiles gumball machine and How You Bean? mason jar filled with stars are both shakers!

Thank you so much, Mayra! These cards are just amazing and absolutely inspiring! You have been an amazing Guest Designer!

There are still two weeks left for the Interactive Card challenge! It will be open until Sunday, July 5th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!
