Fade in and rotate element - Add Elements

Now let’s add some CSS rules

Code   
  1. .img-overlay-container
  2. {
  3. position: relative;
  4. display: inline-block;
  5. margin-bottom: 30px;
  6. }
  7.  
  8. .img-overlay {
  9. width: 100%;
  10. height: 100%;
  11. display: block;
  12. background-color: rgba(225, 123, 123, 0.5);
  13. position: absolute;
  14. left: 0;
  15. top: 0;
  16. text-align: center;
  17. padding-top: 100px;
  18. overflow: hidden;
  19. }
  20.  
  21. .img-overlay > .fa {
  22. color: white;
  23. font-size: 50px;
  24. padding-left: 20px;
  25. padding-right: 20px;
  26. cursor: pointer;
  27. }
  28.  
  29. .img-overlay > h3 {
  30. color: white;
  31. font-weight: bold;
  32. position: absolute;
  33. width: 100%;
  34. padding-top: 25px;
  35. padding-bottom: 25px;
  36. bottom: -20px;
  37. background-color: rgba(225, 123, 123, 0.6);
  38. }

Image Overlay - Add CSS

Now let’s add animation settings, select the link and go to the ACT panel and click on Animation 1, change the trigger to Hover and the target to > .img-overlay, the grater than sign (>) means that I want to effect an element inside this element (in our case inside the link) and it doesn’t have to be a direct child, under the ANIMATION STEPS section let’s change the Init state to opacity:0;, Step 1 to opacity:1; and under the HOVER OUT section change the Step 1 to opacity:0;

We want to rotate and scale up the icons when the user hover it, so select the link again and click on Animation 2 to create a new animation, set the trigger to Hover, the target to > .fa, change the Init state to transform:rotate(20deg)scale(0.9); and Step 1 to transform:rotate(0)scale(1);, under the HOVER OUT section change the Step 1 to transform:rotate(20deg)scale(0.9);

Save it and test it !.

Finally, we want to animate the h3 to slide up, now you get it !

Trigger: Hover
Target: > h3
ANIMATION STEPS
Init state: transform:translateY(30px);
Step 1: transform:translateY(0px);
HOVER OUT
Step 1: transform:translateY(30px);

Save it and test it again !
