Motion Crafts Spring Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the first Motion Crafts Blog Hop EVER!

Motion Crafts Blog was created for the crafting community to share their animation creations and inspire others to make unique projects.

What better way to kick off the launch of our blog that with a Blog Hop featuring our new release?! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from Miriam Prantner's blog.

We are showcasing the Spring Release which features 3 New Animation Die Cut Sets, and 6 New Animation Stamp/Die Cut Combo Sets.

My sweet friend Lindsey Larsen from Occasional Crafting was originally scheduled to post today. She hasn't been feeling well and asked if I would fill in for her for this blog hop! I hope you'll say a little prayer for Lindsey - she was so kind to think of me and I feel horrible that she missed out on this wonderful opportunity!!

I made this cute card with the Bee Happy stamp and die set. The set is a great value because for the price of a regular stamp set you're getting the coordinating dies too.
Whats so fun and unique about Motion Crafts is the motion you capture when using the slider die and special animation grid transparent sheets. Check it out.. You pull the little bee slider and here's what happens.... 
Here's how the card looks with both slides open.
And seriously I think these are amazing. If you know me.. I love to craft but when things get complicated - pop up cards, sliders and shakers I get a little nervous. These dies are well thought out and instructional videos on You Tube are easy to follow.
If I can do it I PROMISE that you can do it!
The second card I made with the Critters stamp set. I inked up the raccoon inside the slider window with orange ink.

Here's what happens when you pull the slider...
All the sets include all the little extras too.. a cover die for the pull, and accessory stamps like the hearts and arrow along with sentiments.
I'm so glad I had this opportunity to participate in this hop. The dies are easy to work with and the images couldn't be cuter! I hope you give them a try! I know I'll be back for more! 
Would you like to see more designs with these innovative slider dies? You're next stop on this hop is Keren Baker, but before you go PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT. Lindsey will pick one random winner from my blog! But you have to leave a comment by midnight US EST on March 30 to be entered to win. I'll post the winner on my blog on Tuesday April 3, 2018.  Trust me.. you're going to want this prize... it's valued at $35!!
