How to Create an Easy Slider Card – Gerda Steiner Designs Guest Designer!


Hi its Therese from lost in paper and
I’ve got a fun card to share with you today for Gerda Steiner designs I’m a
guest designer there today and I’m using the Pool Piggies set which is a really
cool fun summer set and I thought it would be fun to have a little piggy
floating around in the pool so I do want to mask this image off because I just
wanted to be in one piece because this is going to be a slider card it’s
actually really easy to make, it’s a circle slider card so you probably have
the products already to make this card yourself at home if you’ve got a
die-cutting machine and some circle dies so this little piggy is going to be
moving around on the cards I didn’t want it to be in two pieces because he may
come apart but you could actually do this in two pieces and then adhere them
together if you’d prefer so I have just used some mask paper,
that’s some inkadinkado masking paper and the image that you want to be at the front
is the one that you stamped first so that was my piggy and then I placed a
mask over and then stamped the pool ring over top when you remove the mask
it looks like the pig is floating on the pool ring well he will when I finish
coloring and putting all the card together the image is stamped with some
tuxedo black and I’m going to be doing Copic coloring today we’ll show the
colors off to the side but I will have to speed this up because it does take me
a little while. I did also stamp out one of the pool floats but you’ll see that
in a minute and that’s going to be my sentiment piece. I’ll leave you with
the coloring now and we’ll be back when all that is done so here’s the pool float that I was
talking about and I have colored it with some Copics, I did actually when I stamped
it wiped a bit of the ink away from the center of the float because
I knew I was going to be stamping my sentiment over top and I just didn’t
want it to be too bold in the background and this sentiment comes from the go
wild stamp set and I’ve used some onyx black to stamp that out and I did fussy
cut both of these images out leaving a small white border but I didn’t share
that with you today I have a Bristol white cardstock here that is cut the
same size as the front of my card and I want to do some light distress ink
blending I’m not very good at this I don’t practice much and that’s because
you get inky fingers when you do this and I don’t really like getting inky fingers
I think I’m going to take up a different hobby that doesn’t involve ink or wear rubber gloves maybe I do do that sometimes I
have to admit but anyway in the background here I do find that Bristol
works heaps better than the other cardstock that I use for blending and I
did add some tumbled glass and I did actually add a few spatters with my
distress ink sprayer but I forgot to include that but it’s very subtle you
can hardly see it because I did do such light colors. This is the front
of the card and this is where the circle slide is going to go and I didn’t want
it to look white behind the die-cut so I did color that as well I’ve used two of
the Spellbinders nesties this is from the large circle set and I just made sure
that we are place two circles I was going to be able to move little piggy
around without him hanging off the edge of the card too much I’m adding some ATG
adhesive to the back of this panel and I’m going nowhere near
the actual large circle die cut because I want to make sure that my been on my
slider is going to slide around and to do that I do need to add a bit of depth
to the gap so this is just some 2 millimeter fun foam and I’m doing the
same thing here I’m just making sure that it’s not going to be anywhere near
where my slider piece is going to be and also do need to pop up a center piece
from my die cut and I have used some score tape on the back of the fun foam
here just because I know it’s got a really strong hold and it’s going to
work really well too while I hold it in place while the slider is going to be
moved around as well I’ve just got a small coin here in a throw that’s a 5
cent piece so I’ve set that in place sort of in the where the center of the
coin is going to be where the gap is on the die-cut circle and then I can just
adhere my Center circle in place with some scor tape as well now these are a
bit wider these foam dots I think they’re about three millimeters they’re
the this to that foam circles and I’m just trying to member who makes them they’re from American crafts and they’re
a nice strong foam adhesive circle but you could use any foam adhesive as long
as it doesn’t touch the edges of the die-cut circle you do want your slider
piece to be able to slide I did also color up one of the balls from the set
and I cut that out and then I can just pop up the sentiment floaty on the
bottom and just to make sure when you do this any elements they’re not going to
be in the way of your slider you want to still be able to slide the slider around
without hitting anything on the way around so fun is that I love it okay
that’s my finished card for today I do have two videos and two cards to share
with you today I’ll put the link in the description
below I always have such fun playing with the Gerda Steiner stamps and I hope
you enjoy watching these videos so till next time happy papercrafting bye

  1. Hi Terese. I really love the slider card. I've been trying for a while now to get sliders but when I place my orders I always seem to miss out on them. Regards Liz.

  2. love this card Therese. it is nice to know i do not need to buy a special die to make a circle slider card. you are so clever. TFS

  3. Therese!  Your coloring of the floats is so incredible – the shine you achieve in what seems to be a simple way of coloring is phenomenal!  OH the pig is darling, too!  So much fun!  I want to jump in!!!=]
