Pop up Slider Card & Video

Hello everyone todays post is for Heartfelt Creations and I promised a video on the Pop up Slider card, so I've attached 2 video's at the end of todays post. 
Supplies Used:
HCD 701 Posy Patch Die
Really Reasonable Ribbon Lace
Other: Copic E43 for airbrushing around oval Scalloped oval Oval spellbinders Dries Clear Glue Card Measures 6 x 5

2 cream 6 x 5 card stock pieces 1 for front and 1 for back 1 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 Design paper, and attach to front cream 6 x 5 piece now add sewing Now for cutting Measure 1" in from the side and 1" up from the bottom and cut from 1"-4" do this on both sides Now you will cut along the bottom 1" up(meet both sides so you will have a flap) cutting from 1" -5" will do this. Now to score, I used the scorpal and scored at 2 1/2" from the botton of the card. Pull tab piece
4 x 4 1/2 this will be attached to the back of the piece you just scored, attach it to the bottom with red tape you can now add lace around the edge of your front piece and then add the backing. for the main image panel cut a piece of cardstock at 3 x4 and I distresssed it and added sewing and lace, and then attached it to the bottom part of the fold this is so it will move up and down. I used the posy patch diecut for the 4 smallest flowers. The center flower is 2 large, the 1 next size down, then 1 of the next size down. For the 4 small pink in the corners, I used the smallest flower die cutting 8. Now for the 2 cream I used the 2 smallest diecuts and cut 4 of the bigger, and 2 of the smallest to make them. I distressed all flowers using pink ink and then antique linen from tim holtz. I glued pearls in the centers. All sentiments are stamped in memento black ink, 1 on the pull tab, next is under the pop up panel and then the other is on the oval
 I came across this You tube video that Dawn had done, so I thought since I do larger cards that it would be nice to change it up a bit. I think I've done the slider a little different too.
Video Part 1

Video Part 2

Here is another card that I believe measures 5 x 5 1/2 its the smallest one I've done yet.
I will be back in the morning to add my challenge list for my slider card above, thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Sewing station Lamp

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share a Lamp I bought at Hobby Lobby and then altered a bit. When I saw this lamp I LOVED the base, but the shade looked kinda YUCK! It had tulle and ribbon and looked like it was thrown on  :)
So the Dotted tulle was sewn up by my mom in about 5 spots, to give some poofyness to the tulle,, and then I made some Pink Ribbon Roses, and White Rosettes out of Really Reasonable Ribbon Satin ribbon. I replaced the ribbon that was on here with RRR Satin Ribbon with Grosgrain edge.

For around the roses I used RRR Scalloped Trim Green and then hot glued them onto the rosettes I made with the hot glue gun. I did this around the entire lamp I think my last picture on this post you will see a side view of the lamp.

Next I added some gems,with beads that I also bought at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section, I cut them down and hot glued them to behind the bow.
On this last picture you can see the side view, and more of my handmade ribbon roses. I also took this last pic, because I wanted a picture of my kitties resting by our new lamp
Boots & Boomer are resting! Hehehehehe
Thank you for looking and have a lovely weekend!
