Push, Pull, Flip Card in Motion

Hi there,
Yay, I am soooo pleased that I was in the Top 3 at Midweek Magnolias! 

Here is my first Push, Pull card!
 I'm really pleased with how my Guard of the Castle has turned out, this Edwin is new (I've wanted him for a while & as a Pom I had to have him lol) I went to the Paperific Expo in Melbourne last weekend, I found him and lots of Tilda's there - yippee, I haven't treated myself to new Magnolia stamps in ages! 

I did think that push, pull cards were very tricky to make but after doing a little research I realised they are quite simple.

I wanted to have the guardsman standing outside the palace walls with the turrets behind him, 

 there had to be a red Telephone box as well (love this) 

here is the card open

side view, I used some organza ribbon on the slide to pull it out.

Magnolia Guard of the Castle, Phone Booth, Edwin's Knight Castle
Magnolia Doohickeys Paris Night dies
DP's Maja Design Summer Crush 'Off to meet him' & 'Dancing the Bop'
Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Ruby Rock-it Droplets 'Country Cookin'

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

White Stardust Lantern

Hi everyone,

I hope that where ever you were for christmas you had a wonderful day, as I did with my family.

I'd like to share with you a lovely White Stardust Lantern that I've made at least 7 times for family and friends this Christmas, the template came from Sandra's Scrapsels it is a really lovely template and I have added my own slant on it.

The lantern template was cut twice from AC craft card on my Silhouette Cameo, I did this to give it a little more stability as I wanted to have lots of embellishing especially this time of the year, Christmas with lots of White except the Mini Tilda (Fairy Tale Collection) which I coloured Lilac with Copic markers.

I have used heaps of Puff White 3-D paint (Jones Tones) dusted with Snow white fine glitter dust (Ruby rock-it) I love watching the paint puff up its quite magical. I've used a La-La Land Christmas tree die dotted with white pearls, Joy Crafts Winter Wishes Snowflake die on the side with Ranger Stardust Stickles, Ma…

Book Page cards

I recently watched a youtube video using old book pages!
I've torn pages out of a book I'd read but didn't like, so I wasn't feeling too bad about tearing it up to make a card lol!
I gessoed the pages, stuck them to a card front, once dry put some distressed inks here and there on it 
dried it off with my heat tool and decorated it with bits and bobs.

this one has one of my Foamiran flowers on it 

this blue one I used Kaisercraft mists to colour the flowers.
Until next time, happy crafting, stay safe..
