Also part of the Seasons in Motion special, which we used to create our example cards, is the Holiday Stack! The Holiday Stack is a pack of 48 6″ x 6″ patterned papers with designs from some of our past favorite 12″ x 12″ patterns.
These are not the original 12″ x 12″ papers cut into quarters, keeping the patterns the same size, but, rather, shrunken down versions of the classic favorites made to fit a 6″ x 6″ square!
Download our two free animated cardmaking patterns, here, and delight your loved ones with animated cards this coming holiday season!
Now that National Stamping Month is underway, it’s time to celebrate! This year, we’ve pulled out all the stops with our Creativity in Motion special, which introduces a brand-new line of animated stamps! These animated stamps create images that literally dance on the page and provide a fun, interactive crafting experience you’ll have to see to believe!
The Creativity in Motion special includes three animated My Acrylix® stamp sets—Animated Sentiments, Animated Butterfly Kisses, and Animated Safari Animals. These stamps add a touch of magic to any project and allow you to create artwork like no other.
Check out this playful safari animal dance party! You can almost hear the music playing as these little guys show off their moves!
Looking for something a little more sophisticated? The Animated Butterfly Kisses set has just the right balance of sweet, delicate, and refined, giving you the perfect recipe for an unforgettable card.
If whimsy is what you’re after, go with the Animated Sentiments stamp set! These stamps will bring your words to life and are sure to delight!
Animated stamp sets are a ton of fun, but they need a little bit of help to really dazzle. Along with the three animated stamp sets shown above, the Creativity in Motion special also includes specialized Animation Sheets. These acetate sheets are printed with thin, black lines. These lines cover portions of the animated stamp images, but when they are pulled, the lines cover different parts of the stamp, creating the illusion of movement.
The Creativity in Motion special also includes the Border Tab stamp set and Thin Cuts metal dies. Together, they allow you create pull tabs to help guide the animated stamp experience. With simple instructive sentiments like “pull here” or “SLIDE,” and a few more fun options like “fancy,” “surprise,” “OOOH,” and “AAAH,” the Border Tab stamp set gives you plenty of options to create personalized pull tabs for your animated artwork. The Border Tab Thin Cuts metal dies allow for even more personalization with four fun shape options!
The Creativity in Motion special also includes our brand-new 6″ x 6″ Bright Stack; we’ve taken some of our favorite paper patterns from past collections and shrunk them down from their original 12″ x 12″ versions to create this adorable mini paper packet!
Creativity in Motion has a ton to offer, and all of it is designed to give you the best crafting experience possible. To help guide you through the process of creating an animated card from start to finish, we’ve developed a handy step-by-step guide, which you can download here.
We’ve also put together a short instructional video, demonstrating how each component fits together. Check it out to see this animated crafting action for yourself!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this glimpse into the world of animated stamps, and we can’t wait to see how you innovate your own artwork with animated stamps. Got any ideas about how you want to use these stamps? Tell us about them in the comments below, and happy crafting!
