Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Pop Up Slider Card + Blogger Tips + WOYWW

(Warning.. photo heavy post)
Hi there everyone, today sharing a blogger tip at End of this post - on how to link multiple cards from one post to any blog challenge site.
It’s Wednesday so time for WOYWW or What is on Your Workdesk Wednesday over at Julia’s at the Stamping Ground! To my desk!
Taken yest., about to start a Rudolph Day card, for Mo’s Christmas Challenge (here) that runs from 25th to end of each month. In centre I’ve a very pretty card received last Christmas for upcycle? Left a stamp set may use. Stamp and dies at back centre  standing up are waiting to be used. 😉
Far right is card shown on last week’s post (should be in mail). Under it, a pile of card bits left from making pop up Mario Kart card for very special 10th birthday!
Here’s the various stages of pop up slider card, I accidentally cut through too much but repaired it! 😉 
To cut rectangle you use rectangle die BUT don’t cut one end.. misjudged, cut just a bit. But all fixed!
This is other side of pop up slider mechanism scored + popped up; always seem to forget one part in steps. This time forgot to put writing piece that goes inside before attaching to base. Oops! Removed from base and corrected. For previous tutorial with great video link see here.. on video the crafter eyeballs it ... no measuring! Love it. ❤️
Finished card... *flat, (partially 3D'ed the image, it's courtesy of Google)
and *close up (font used is Mario Kart font, free from DaFont site),
then *popped up.
Below is Rudolph day card, a very simple upcycle! (*flower on Rudolph card is a Waratah NSW floral emblem, Sturt Desert Pea below is SA floral emblem)
Now to Aussie shots, continuing tale of special folk in centre of Western Australia. *Skip these if like.
Called into Sandstone after had been out to London Bridge.
Apparently London Bridge was wide enough for a horse and buggy in years gone by ... I wouldn’t be game to walk across it today 😳 The mauve wildflowers added to the colour palate of the landscape... very pretty! 
Set up camp between Sandstone and Mt Magnet. Needed to put on tea. 😋 Corn meat, white onion sauce, baked veggies... who says food on the road isn’t tasty?
Mt Magnet was much smaller than I imagined. It only has a population of around 500.
Next photo is out of order, from yest, these are Sturt Desert Pea, a stunning red bloom, the display went on for more than 20 km (12.5 miles)!! It’s spring wildflower time in WA. 
***Apologies to Marit,** last week I commented on all folk, but her. I tried three or four different ways and times to comment, but Wordpress blog insistence that my comment was spam each and every time, even if edited altered comment, caused me to give up. Sorry! 
Tip for Multiple Linking on Challenge Blogs.
 I complained to Linky folk and received a simple tip to solve it. Seems to work on all variety of link sites
Card one do normal link for first link
Second card you just add directly to the end #3 if more do #4 #5 and so on for some reason you don’t do #2.
So mine would be:
Card 1 https://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.com/2019/08/stencilled-oxides-and-butterfly.html
Card 2 https://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.com/2019/08/stencilled-oxides-and-butterfly.html#3
And next one #4, so on, hopefully that helps solve multiple linking from one blog post issue. 

Thought of Day:
Well, God bless everyone and thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat, may God richly bless you and those you love,
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. Xx
Thought of Day:
This verse really encourages me to keep on keeping on, it WILL be worth it all. He fails Not. He picks us up when (not if) we do.
*https://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/simon-says-clean-and-simple-3/ Christmas card is CAS. Dry embossed background, popped up Upcycled card from 2018, ribbon with die cut Digi verse hand edged in gold to match image. Rounded corners..done!
https://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/ S is for... Slider card!.. for Thomas' double  figures 😁 birthday!! And S is .... for Scarlet Waratah flower.

Neet said...

Thank you for everything. The quotes were such a big help and I loved Betsy's blog. Both have helped keep me going in the right direction. Bless you.
Love your Mario and Luigi card, what a pair of characters they are. Are they stamps? Also thanks for the tute, one can so easily forget the stages when you get to my age.
Great photos of Oz, was particularly good to see London Bridge, awesome! As for the Stuart Desert Peas, that must have been a wonderful sight. I so enjoy having a trip around Oz with you. Keep those photos coming.
Hugs and Blessings, Neet xx 2

Take care. God bless.

What a great card for Thomas Shaz - I love that mechanism, and how you used the google images :)
The Aussie pics are wonderful, as ever, and so fascinating too - wee don't see these images in tourist publications .
Thanks for the linking tips - I did try adding card 2 to the end of the address but it would not take it, so split the post...
Blessings

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Oh Shaz I have not made a slider card in ages, you've just given me an idea on a creation i've been pondering over for a while and Thank you for the tips on linking to challenges, I have had a few problems recently so I will take note of your tips, Thank YOU. I especially love your Mario Brothers card, reminds me of me & my Daughter this past weekend as we dressed up as them for a fancy dress event.. fun times :)
Fabulous photo's, you take us to parts of the world we will never visit in our lifetime.. BIG WOYWW blessings Tracey #15

Lunch Lady Jan said...

The Mario card is awesome! I bet the boy who gets that will treasure it. The sliding mechanism is clever and well done you for rescuing the accidental snip too far :-)

Betsy said...

Good morning my sweet sister Shaz! That is such a cute Mario card and I'm sure it will be well loved and appreciated by Thomas. I also loved the Aussie photos you shared. Your country is indeed lovely and parts of it look like the western U.S. to me. The bridge reminds me of the state of Utah and the many natural formations there. Thank you for sharing with us.
Thank you also for your advice on my blog. The dealership we bought the trailer from are supposed to pick it up and take it back to exterminate the mice. Dennis and I went out last night and packed a lot of things up from inside again. It's SO much work. I'm off in a few minutes for the MRI of my head. If you think of it, would you please say a prayer for me? I appreciate you and your caring very much. I hope your day is a blessed one my dear sister in the Lord.
Blessings always,
Betsy

Elizabeth said...

Hi Shaz, that's the cutest pop-up card I've seen in a long time. The young recipient is going to love it. As you know I so enjoy your Aussie photos and look forward to seeing them each week. I hope London Bridge has warning notices on it - it looks pretty chancy to me. We have something similar up north - called the Bullers of Buchan - which looks equally perilous. Your wildflowers are amazing - so colourful compared to the ones we see here. Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #19

Belinda said...

Love the cards. I hope to make more interactive cards this year. I think they are so cool looking. Oo and the floral one rocks my world!! I love flowers and thank you for sharing a link about the Sturt desert flower. It's so different. I am also in agreement with you, no way would I walk across that "bridge".
Have a crafty day my friend!
Belinda #23

Caro said...

Love the pop up Mario and Luigi card - my husband would love that! The photos of Australia are gorgeous, especially the sandstone bridge. Have a lovely week. With love & God Bless, Caro x (#11)

loz said...

Hello Shaz. I Love the Mario card.. and the state emblem card is so Beautiful. Fantastic photos..loz

Pia S said...

The Mario and Luigi card is such a fun make, both shape and design wise. Perfect for a young boy. I also find the recycled Christmas card to be an eye catching one.

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Shaz, Ooh that card is so special he will love that. and WOW it looks like a total adventure land you are traveling through too. I really don't know about the Poinsettia pronunciation because, I do say all the syllables too. :) ~Stacy #26

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

Great card collection Shaz, loving them and the glorious photographs. I had to smile at London Bridge. Have a great crafty week and a happy woyww, Angela x8x

Julia Dunnit said...

Clever you Miss ShazInOz, I bet Thomas will really appreciate your paper engineering. I do it - miss a step out when I’m repeating something for the third or more time...so I’m super impressed that you were able to rescue....I haven’t managed that part so well! The christmas card is beautiful. AS are your trip pictures...my word, London Bridge is looking a little crumbly, but what a fantastic area full of vibrant colours. Lovely.

Conniecrafter said...

You have been busy, so nice you were able to fix your accidents in the first card, the mario card is so fun, another great upcycle card :)
Loved your pictures, almost makes me think of Utah here in the states. The wild flowers are just lovely

Conniecrafter said...

I forgot to say thanks for sharing the tip on posting to links

Marit said...

I puzzled a bit over the pop-up card but think I 'have it' and see how it works... I love it and I bet Thomas Dylan did too!! Thanks for your visit the other day and happy - belated - woyww. Hug from Holland. Marit #14

Oooo what a great bit of upcycling & its lovely to see the NSW flower, as the image too, thanks for joining us at Augusts Rudolph Days Challenge, luv Sam x

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I loved going through the popup slider making process on your whimsical Mario card. I'd love to visit Australia sometime, so I thoroughly enjoyed perusing through your photographs. Happy belated WOYWW!

scrappymo! said...

Your photos are fabulous as always! 'i always enjoy seeing Australia through your eyes!

Love your upcycled card. That flower is beautiful on your pretty card.

Thanks for taking part in the August Rudolph Days Challenge.

Christine said...

I am determined to make one of those slider cards, it is on my todo list. I hope to make up one of my monthly swaps as a 'fancy fold' card, using a different card each month from my list.
I love the Mario design that you used.
Happy belated (very!) WOYWW

lovely cards. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Card Weekly Challenge - Myrna DT

Shoshi said...

Love the pop-up card, it's great. I bet it went down well. Your Aussie shots are fabulous as always, and I can't get over "London Bridge" - that is simply amazing! Like you, I wouldn't fancy going across it though. Thank you for your comments, and I'm glad you like my make-up remover pads. I thought I'd make plenty but I don't wear make-up every day and probably went overboard with them. I do use 3 each time, though. I have found they wash in the machine without being in a bag, which is great. They come out spotless! They work really well, much better than the cotton wool pads. Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers. I really appreciate them. I am going for my appointment at 9.30 tomorrow morning, and trying to be strong and keep leaning on the Lord! The system really sucks and it's causing so much suffering to so many people.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #17
