You would not believe what happened this morning.....I posted at 8am. For some silly reason the post got deleted...a truly blond moment! Grrrrr. I realised only an 1/2 hour ago. At least I was able to get this posted before the computer went on a go slow! Grrrrr. Can't get the photos loaded. Grrrr
So I will post this and get the second card up and posted later today. Until then you will have to make do with photos posted at Heartfelt Creations.
Till then scrappy inky moments....

This was such a fun book card to make...

The finished size of this slider tunnel card is 8 1/2 “ x 11” ( 13.5 cm x 15 cm )
  Click  HERE to see all measurements and how to make the slider card base
Click HERE to see how to work with the dies
The card front for this slider card is 5 1/2 “ x 7 “ ( 14 cm x 17.7 cm ) Once you have made the card base, find the matting paper in the paper collection. Cut this a little smaller than the card base. You will only need to cover the card front 1” (2 cm ) down as the tunnel card book will be adhered to the rest of the card front base. Cut from the design paper 7 “ x 1 “ ( 17.7 cm x 2.4 cm ) for the tunnel card book spine.  Using the Mowed Lawn, ink all the edges of the design paper that will be showing. Adhere the prepared design paper in place. Put aside until you have completed the tunnel book card. Adhere the design paper to the tunnel book card spine, covering the spine and a little on the front. Here starts the fun! How to make the whole in the pages: Chose two papers for each page remembering you have a main page and a top page which I did not decorate for this card. Once the pages have been chosen and are cut to size, place the page onto the design paper and trace around the whole. Find the die to fit the oval whole and tape in place before die cutting. Place the tape to the inside of the oval in case the tape rips the paper when taking it off, then it will not show. Tape well as you do not want this to move in your machine! Emboss the papers you want embossed with the embossing folders. You can use either wet glue or double side tape to adhere the pages together and into the bookbinding. This project was started with the front page then went to the back of the book and worked forward. You can do what ever suits you. Note, there is no oval hole in the front page because it is covered; this is so it will look like a book cover. Take the largest oval die with the fancy edge and cut out from the front page. Cut a smaller oval. Cut a few extra from white card stock and adhere together so the ovals will be very firm and will not bend. These will be adhered back in place with foam 3d dots after the edges are inked with mowed lawn ink. Apply the white drying glue to the roof and water wheel then apply the crystal clear glitter. Leave to dry. When this is dry adhere on place once all the pages are done. Find the twin paper and fancy cut the two cardinal birds. Apply the glue and glitter to the snow on this fussy cut. This will also be later adhered with 3d foam dots. The berries are highlighted with a few drops of Red Berry crystal gloss drops. The sentiment is stamped onto the white card stock, cut into strips and the edges are inked. Two lines are adhered to each page of the book. The back page:  Find x2 the design paper with the large deer on it. Fussy cut the deer from one of these papers. The fussy cutting will be used for two pages. Stamp, colour and die cut the twigs from the window fillers sets. Make x4; apply the glue and glitter to the snow on the twigs. Use the same paper for the background. Adhere to the back page. Adhere the prepared sentiments. Use the remaining deer for the next page, building the picture as you go. Do the same for the remaining pages planning and fussy cutting as you go. Not forgetting to apply the glue and glitter before adhering the page to the book. It takes a little longer but then glitter will not get to where it is not wanted. The page with the window: This is stamped and die cut an extra 5 times. Adhere together then ink the window frame with vintage photo. Die cut the fancy frame from the window box elements die set from whit card stock to use as a window curtain, adhere to the back of the window frame before adhering the frame to the page. Stamp the flowers and mistletoe branch for the foot of the window. Arrange and adhere in place. Adhere all the sentiment s to the pages. To finish, add stickles to the snow on the trees and snowflakes on the front page. Adhere the book to the card front. Make a large triple bow and adhere to the top of the slider with a glue dot. To finish the card, adhere the mistletoe branch and flower to the knot of the bow.

Well I managed to get it all up and running for you....I think thats the down side of a vacation!
Getting the motor started again...yes I had so much fun in Spain...we felt like we could have done a few more weeks away...may be next year we'll take a month off.....?
Inky scrappy hugs to you all.

Hi,  this week is a new collection full of goodness and wonder...
...thats just the top of the ice berg...believe me as the month goes on... just gets better and better...wait and see!
This Wednesday I start with a winter card...I could not resist the cute little Reindeer family
and the spruce trees from a older collection...the main feature of this card...
...the new window frame from the 'WINTERS EVE' collection to make the card front pop.

The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4 “ x 5 1/4” (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm) 
Taking the white card stock make the tent fold card base. The two matting papers are found in the paper collection, blue and green stripes. Cut the first layer a little smaller than the card base, the second about 1/4 ” (.5cm) smaller than the first matting layer.  Ink the edges with the Peeled paint ink then distress the edges. 

Taking the white card stock stamp and die cut the spruce trees x 3, snowflakes x 4, mistletoe x 4. Bring colour to the die cuts.

Taking again the white card stock stamp and die cut the window frame x 7. 
Find the small animal winter scene in the paper collection. Cut the scene out so you can make 3 layers between the window frames. Adhere the first 2 window frames to the snow and tree background. ( There will be two frames between each layer. ) Arrange the fussy cut trees and animals between each frame layer to make a 3d scene, when pleased with the scene adhere in place. ( For a deeper 3d effect you could add 2 extra window frames between the layers ) Apply the white drying glue and glitter to the window frame and ledge.

Make a bow from the ribbon. Arrange and adhere all the embellishments made on to the card matting then card front. To finish apply the diamond stickles to the snowflakes.

I hope you get enough of those close ups to be able to make this card. A great winter card for those cozy snowy days...think of wishing some one a great winter sport vacation...or just because you want to add to a box of chocolates gift...may be some one went that extra mile and cleaned the snow off the car or pathway...or just because you want to put a smile on the face of someone you love.
Who really needs a excuse to play with these great toys anyway!'s called art from the heart.... 
Sussipoppins love and hugs
