Hello, Connie Nichol here today with an easy birthday card made from an Art Impressions stamp and die set.    Art Impressions has a huge selection of different interactive stamp sets which need to be pulled, unfolded, twisted, spun or shaken.  Go check them out. The designs will be sure to bring a big smile to your face.    Who doesn’t love to get a card that flutters or wobbles?

I played with the Birthday Fairy set to create a couple of cards – the set comes with the stamps, dies and an action ‘wobble’.  You can see from the side photo that the fairy’s skirt is dimensional and mobile. Here’s another slightly different version of the Birthday Fairy card in royal blue.

I stamped the fairy and her skirt with Clearsnap Top Boss ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  I find that embossing an image helps me stay within the lines when I colour.  I used Chameleon markers to colour the fairy.  These innovative alcohol ink pens allow you to get different colours and shading from just one pen.  Try different colour combos for the fairy’s dress and hair.
For my second card, I made my own wobble.  You can buy a package of wobbles, but I needed one right away, so I twisted some dollar store craft wire around a pen to make a coil, then adhered it to two punched circles with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Tape (it’s got a good strong hold).  This worked really well and was a quick cost effective option for making additional wobbles.
I hope you are inspired to make your own Art Impressions interactive cards.  They are so much fun.

Supplies:  Stampin Up! cardstock, circle punches and embossing folder,  Art Impressions stamps and dies, Chameleon pens, Clearsnap ink and embossing powder, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner and crafty power tape, sequins, ribbon.

Have a crafty day, Connie
