Tiddly Inks Challenge #27 - Spinner Card
I'm so glad you're here with me again this week as I get to show off this week's SUPER FUN challenge!!! Spinner cards!!! I know some of you may be intimidated to make this but it's SUPER easy, I promise!!! There are so many tutorials out there. I knew how to do this but I wanted to find an easy tutorial for you all to check out so please check this one out if you need step by step help.
I used the following images in my project:
After coloring him in I then cut out the blanket from the image printed on DP and I ran a small stitch around the edge to make it more dimensional.
I then adhered it to my image and trimmed it out. I then created my spinner card track. I free hand cut for the opening but it is easier to use the word punch as displayed in the video example above. My opening was cut wider so I used nickels in lieu of pennies.
Once I was happy with how smooth it glided I then added my image to my spinning mechanism. I had extra room in the corners from where I cut so I added 4 white brads that I think add a little extra something something visually.
Once I had my entire spinner piece ready I worked on the background of my card. I added the polka dot paper after I'd stitched a quick little border. I then trimmed out the clouds from the foggy background and added them to the back along with the star from my original image.
I used the Harmony Border for the background behind my spinner track for added visual interest.
I hope you enjoy and have been inspired to try this fabulously fun and super WOW factor card!!! Please come and play along!!!
I cannot wait to see what you create!!
