Interactive Element with an Action Wobble + Simon’s United We Craft Blog Party!

Just because we’re all home right now doesn’t mean we can’t get together virtually and craft! As part of their #SSSUnitedWeCraft movement, Simon Says Stamp thought it would be really awesome to gather together over 100 different designers and have a blog party! Everyone is crafting some awesome projects using Simon brand products and today I am featuring the April 2020 Card Kit, Follow the Rainbow!

I had such a great time creating with this kit (click here to see the card I shared recently using the kit), that I just had to make a second card. This time I decided to add an interactive element to the umbrella by adhering it with an action wobble!

When you tap the umbrella, it wobbles; I love the cute effect this gives the finished card!

Be sure to watch the video at the top of this post to see how I put this card together!

One of the most special parts of this blog party is that Simon is encouraging us to share behind the scenes at how it is to craft at home! If you don’t know already, I have four cats; Allie and Maddie, the two girls just turned 1 a couple days ago and the boys, Oscar and Thomas will be 1 at the end of May.

My studio is one of their favorite places to hang out in the house. Every time I am in there they are too! They are far from helpers and often create messes on top of the mess I make when I’m crafting but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Here’s a peek at my fur babies hanging out in my studio…


If you haven’t already, I hope you will check out the Simon Says Stamp United We Craft blog party – there is so much inspiration to be found!

    Clever idea to put the umbrella on a wobble! I also love your little helpers, even if they make an occasional mess. They are simply putting their signature on your cards.
