I finally made a double slider card! Thanks for the great Resources tutorial, Beate! These kinetic/motion cards are always so much fun to make. This is a birthday card for a 12 year old daughter of a good friend.
The flowers on the front panel started out as just being masked and watercolored, but it looked too plain to me. So I ended up stamping them again, cutting them out and making them all 3D. The large flowers are made from Pretty in Pink cardstock and watercolored with Regal Rose, accented with the Regal Rose marker. The small flowers are stamped on Apricot Appeal cardstock and watercolored with Apricot Appeal (I like intensifying the color of the cardstock this way). The left one is on one dimensional and the bottom one on two.
You really can't see it in the photos, but I used the white Souffle pen and DD glitter on the centers of the small Apricot Appeal flowers, and the Sakura Quickie glue pen and DD glitter on the centers of the little blue flowers on the lattice background. And I had great fun using the Sakura stardust pen all over the flowers. The tab is made with the one inch circle punch.
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Versamark, Classic Bashful Blue, Gable Green & Apricot Appeal, Craft Ballet Blue (on lattice layer), reinkers for watercoloring: Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal
Accessories: detail black EP, aqua painter, Regal Rose marker, DD glitter, Sakura Quickie glue pen & Stardust pen, white Souffle pen, corner slot punch, corner rounder punch, 1 inch circle punch, dimensionals, mini glue dots

Linda, first of all, that's a very pretty background you created with the Lattice and Fresh Fillers. I would have thought it was designer paper if I hadn't paid more attention. I can just imagine what it looks like with all the sparkle! The Climbing Leaves background is so pretty and delicate and one of my favorites that I'll have to try to work into a card soon now that you've reminded me how much I love it. Great idea to watercolor on the Pretty in Pink to get such rich color and I can see the glitter there--it looks wonderful! The Apricot flower centers you added give this lots of dimension and extra pretty appeal. I know your 12 year old friend will be enchanted by this sparkly beauty!

When I first saw that background I thought it was some wonderful patterned paper. But then I recognized the Lattice Backgrounder because I have it. WOW!!! It is just an awesome background! You are an incredible stamper, Linda. The flowers are so cool. This card is amazing!
