Ta-Da! Seasons Tweetings.


Hey Terri here! Today I am sharing another Ta-Da! Diorama project but this time there is a more, I'm sharing a couple of adaptions I've made. Let's take a look.



I started by die cutting all of the elements of the Ta-Da! Diorama mechanism. I used a combination of Into The Woods Remix and Knit Picky Winter 6x6 paper pads. I cut the internal pieced from construction weight acetate as I want my images to look like they are in the sky.



Here's where I made my first adaption, I used the die that cuts the slots twice on each door. This allows me to be able to have some images at the top of the diorama and some at the bottom, of course if you just wanted things at the top you can just cut the slots at the top of the doors.



Next I stamped all of the cute Winter Birds images onto 80lb super smooth cardstock using an alcohol friendly ink. I then coloured them using alcohol markers. I chose to keep them looking like Red Cardinals but changing the colours can give so many different looks. I cut the images using the Winter Birds Die Set.



I added some ink blending and stickles to the doors of the Ta-Da! Diorama and then started to put the scene together. I like to have image on the front that give a nod to whats inside, making sure that when the doors are open the scene flows and makes sense.


One thing I have noticed that really bugs me with the Ta-Da! Diorama is that the front window can slide about when you open and close the doors. This is where I made my second adaption! I created stabaliser pieces to hold the front panle still. They work brilliantly. I cut some 110lb card to measure 1/4" by 1.75", I fold it half length ways and crease with a bone folder, I then score 1/4" from either end.



I attach the small 1/4 tabs on to the back of the door slots as in the picture below and then the other small tabto the back piece, this allows the card to fold flat but when opened stop sand sliding and misalignment.


Lastly I stamped a sentiment from the Winter Birds stamp set onto the stitched banner included in the Ta-Da! Diorama and then added some stickles tohats, scarfs and snow. I am really happy with how this card turned out and can't wait to give it to somebody special this christmas.
