Pop and Wobble – Adding Dimension to Your Projects

I am often asked how I know what to do to make a project stand out. Since I am not content to create a page or card and leave it flat; I have an arsenal of ways to add depth and realism to my designs. I always add inking or chalking, layers and other dimensional elements to my project. I am constantly on the look out  for new products that can add a fun element to my project. Check out the rest of this blog to see my latest find. Be sure to read to the end to find out about our Crafty Special for Craft Room members.

As I was thinking about ways to help people think dimensionally, I realized there are some things that I do without even thinking. It was good to stop and consider how I could explain my thought process.

The number ONE thing I do to add dimension is to create layers. This starts when I am designing my card or page. My second favorite way to add depth is to ink or chalk the edges of the cut pieces. This hints at shadow and curve which fools the eye into thinking there is depth.

Then there are all of the Dimensional add ons. This list keeps growing but here are just a few ideas:

Glitter and glitter glue

Embossing powders

Lacquers and crackle mediums

Rhinestones and dew drops

Color mists

Pop Dots  and foam tape

and now my latest find:  WOBBLE SPRINGS™!

Wobble Springs™ make your design wiggle and wobble. I love, love, love these little springs! I keep coming up with more ways to use them. You can make an elephant’s  head sway, a basketball jiggle in the basket, a butterfly flutter and so much more. For my video tutorial, I made a bunny wriggling under a fence and a baby swinging in a blanket bundle. (Luann’s new granddaughter was my inspiration.) The cutting files for both cards are below so be sure to download them.  (The Bunny Card is included with the videos.)

    Misty- you have to sign in to the store to see the Wobble Springs. It is a Craft Room members only special. Sorry- but I don’t know if the free shipping extends overseas.)

  • Christine Post author

    Cheryl, the font is a True Type font called Baby Kruffy. I am sure you can find it free on the internet. It is one of my favorites.

    Sharon, Even if you are logged into the Craft Room you will need to sign in to the store. Look for the words “sign in” in the top right area of the screen.


    Hi Christine, the internet wasn’t loading anything properly last night, but all is well today. I “need” (ie. want!) a few other products as well, so will add wobble springs to that order. They look like fun.

    Hi Christine,
    I went to the store & signed in, but it said that the crafty special had expired? I searched the site for them as well & it said product not found. Is there another place that the wobble springs can be purchased?

  • Amanda

    The wobble springs were so popular that we have already sold out! Keep an eye out though because we will have more specials on awesome product in the future!
