You Move Me for Global Design Project

Over at Global Design Project, the challenge this week is an absolutely gorgeous colour combination that I couldn't ignore! I had to play along and I decided to make use of a really fun and unique stamp set and thinlit bundle called You Move Me, which has the unique feature of some images that actually appear to move when you raise and lower them behind the specially designed grid. I previously tried out the butterfly images here, but had not yet inked up the hummingbird, although hummingbirds are some of my favourite feathered friends. I thought that the colours in this week's challenge would really suit a hummingbird.  Here's the challenge banner:

And here's how my project turned out:

Now to get the full effect, you really have to see the action of the hummingbird in the grid so watch the short video below:


  • I die cut the grid in a 3 3/4" square of Bermuda Bay cardstock, then punched a thumbhold in it using a 3/4" circle punch so I could grip the 3 3/8" x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock holding the special hummingbird motion image, stamped in Night of Navy ink, and move it up and down to make the wings appear to flutter.
  • The Bermuda Bay cardstock with the grid cut in it is mounted on the card front using Foam Adhesive Strips on the bottom and sides. This leaves room for the Whisper White piece to move up and down within it. When die-cutting the grid, it is imperative that you use the Precision Base Plate or you will not get a clean cut of the strips in the grid.
  • The Bermuda Bay hummingbird, all the flowers, leaves and sentiments are all images from the You Move Me Photopolymer stamp set and they all, except the sentiments, have framelits to die cut them using the Move Me Thinlits that are part of the bundle.
