How Sweet Animation Is for The Joy of Sets April Blog Hop!

April 2020

Hello to those hopping over from Tricia Butts‘s blog! I just love the monthly The Joy of Sets Blog Hop! Scroll to the end to see the complete list of bloggers. Our theme this month is Birthdays. A special lady in my life will be turning 77 at the end of this month, so she is my inspiration for this card, too, just like she was for last month’s!

How Sweet Animation Is

With all the down time we have right now, I’ve been watching a LOT of crafters on YouTube. To my amazement, I discovered a product that has been around about 3 years, but I hadn’t seen it until now. Animation stamps! They are so cool! The stamp set and grid I used are from Uchi’s Designs. There are several videos you can view to learn more about them.

With this being my first dive into animation stamps, I will tell you the third time’s the charm. The first “pocket” I made, I didn’t glue my flaps on correctly. On the second try, the pouch was a little too puckered. But with the third time, I finally got it right! Check it out!
