Friends of Speedy TV challenge #144 - Movement Card

The Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week is make a movement card.  Join us here for a chance to win a stamp set and for all of the details on the latest challenge.

I fell back on an old standby that I learned to make in first grade for my motion card.  I folded two strips of paper to make a spring for my hummingbird, so that he will pop out when he comes out of the envelope and look like he's hovering near the pretty new chrysanthemum from Mark's Finest Papers.  The images were heat embossed and water colored with re inkers and a gingham ribbon and knot added along the bottom.

Mark's Finest Papers Images: Chrysanthemum, Hum Along
Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, foam tape, re inkers, heat embossing, water pen, .

For more inspiration for this challenge, check out the blogs of my friends.

Have a great week!



  1. Fun idea - I have to admit I have never used that idea on a card. Like the lovely colours you have used.

  2. LOVE your beautiful card DJ!! Great idea for using the spring on the hummer, perfect with the chrysanthemum! I love both images and the look wonderful with the turquoise and black checks :)

  3. LOVE THIS IDEA!!! The card is just lovely and the hovering hummingbird is just a fabulous addition!!!
