Make it Move Technique Challenge

Zoe November 10, 2010 10

Hi Everyone,

It’s that time of the month again at Make it Crafty and it’s my turn to host the challenge and look after you for the next couple of weeks. 🙂

Now, could you imagine me doing something other than challenging you to make something that MOVES? heehee

I have created a group in the Learning Community called Make it Move where you will be able to come and ask for help or bounce ideas.

I have also designed a step by step guide showing how I made my card below which I have called a ‘Sliding Pop Up Easel card“.


This means that you may receive feedback that you were not expecting or even wanting to read.
The designers will try their best to offer their suggestions in a respectable understanding manner.

Let’s get Inspired!!

I am very excited to have one of my super gorgeous crafty friends play along with us this challenge. We have been friends from early on when I started this blog and I asked if she would play with my new 3D Wishing Well Kit and tell me what she thought of it.

How GORGEOUS is this creation? For more details and gorgeous close ups jump over to Kylie’s blog.

This is the Sliding Pop Up Easel card I made for the tutorial

I didn’t go overboard with embellishments as I wanted to keep it simple and show the functionality. But as you can imagine you can have a lot of fun with this.

I used the new ‘Sandstone Citadel‘ and ‘Lily Pads’


Beccy must have done an all nighter as I was very late with my tutorial (slaps wrist)
and she managed to follow the instructions and create this fabulous card

Images used are, Christmas Elves House, Cheeky Santa & Cheery Santa


Mag created this gorgeous pop up card


Carisa created this unique flip open pocket card.


Sandy created this stunning Christmas card where the front can be spun around and the snow flake pops open when you open the card

Sandy incorporate ‘Cheery Santa


Barbara created a spinning style card too. When you open the card the centre front image will flip into place as well as the characters pop up!

Barbara incorporate the new ‘Sandstone Citadel

For all the details on how the creative team made their projects this week, please visit their individual blogs.

Being a technique challenge there will be a few prizes up for grabs!

I am very excited to be offering an…

Encouragement Award!

I am also going to have a ‘Zoe’s Pick’ award
