Funky Insects Slider Card

This is the first of my makes using the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 2 dies, Flower Field and Funky Insects. 

I tried something different when I made this card and I recorded it on video as I worked. I edited out some of the slow parts so you weren't watching ink dry and such, but you get to see a little of the process I go through when working through a design.  There is also a little sewing on paper tutorial in the middle for those who haven't tried it yet.

Also, I was inspired to make this card after seeing a YouTube tutorial from Jennifer McGuire Ink. She is a genius! I love to turn her youtube channel on and just let her creativity play hoping some of it will infuse into my mind. Her Open-and-Slide card tutorial was really fun to watch and easy to follow. I highly recommend watching it here: Jennifer McGuire Ink Open-and-Slide Card

Here are some close-ups so you can see some of the details a little closer.

Thanks so much for checking out this Jennifer McGuire Ink inspired card using the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 2 dies.

Tami, a huge thank you for sharing this incredible tutorial. I loved every minute, Especially the sewing. I learned a lot from that. And having you combined with Jennifer is like having cake AND ice cream. You are my favorite designer, and I so much appreciate you sharing your work and the tutorials.

When I saw this card on Tim's live, I instantly fell in love with it. I wondered if you got the slider idea from Jennifer's video! What you've done really steps the technique up quite a bit!! Although I've heard of stitching on a card, I don't think I've ever seen anyone actually do it before. As a visual leaner, I found it very helpful to watch you. Can't tell you how much I appreciate and enjoyed the video as well as you sharing your brilliant and beautiful design. Thank you, Tami!

This card was a favorite from Tim’s live. I love the interactive feature and knew immediately where the inspiration came. I love how you took Jennifer’s basic clean and simple technique and stepped it up to make it work for you. I really enjoyed the video, and especially appreciated the segment on stitching. I have never sewn, but bought an old machine to learn to sew on cards. Your instruction was super helpful. Thank you! I’m thrilled you are on You Tube. I appreciate you sharing more of yourself on that platform.
