Happy Saturday, everybody! I am so sorry for not uploading a Saturday Stamp Day video last week. College has been keeping me extremely busy and I am looking forward to my Summer Break (end of June) so I can make as many videos as I want. In today’s video I am creating a spinner/slider card since these are very in trend lately. Amy Lee from The Craft Bunny blog inspired me to make this project. She is so talented and I love any of her cute creations! Be sure to check out her blog because she is so talented.
I used the adorable Willy & Friends set from Waffle Flower along with the Claire stamp set to stamp a fruit background. I colored all of the images with Copic markers. When I finished the card, I noticed my shading for the strawberry isn’t that clear. However, I will be expanding my Copic collection soon so hopefully I cannot wait to experience with different color combinations. After coloring my pretty background, I colored and die cut one of the monkeys from the Willy & Friends stamp set.
Next, I moved on to the sentiment. My mom is turning 48 tomorrow so I used the ‘t Is Je Verjaardag (translation: It’s your birthday) stamp set from the Belgian company Els Brigé Designs to stamp my sentiment. The word ‘jaar’ means year so technically the sentiment means ’48 years old’. 🙂 I sprinkled on some Daytona Sands embossing powder from WOW. It’s quite rare that I use yellow/gold embossing powder but I really like that color and I think my mom will like it as well.
Afterwards, it was time for the spinner part! I have never ever created a spinner/slider card before so it was a bit of trial and error but I’m pleased with the outcome. First, I created two borders with foam squares: one on the back of the fruit piece and one on the back of the sentiment circle. These borders will make sure that the penny won’t fall out. I used two pennies in total. I adhered both pennies on top of each other with a little piece of foam. Finally, I adhered the monkey on top of the stacked pennies with more foam tape. It’s a bit hard to explain it in a post so it’ll be much clearer when you will watch the video. 🙂
That’s it for now! Thanks so much for taking your time to read my post and to watch my video. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel because I am getting closer and closer to 10,000 subscribers. I will be organizing a video hop filled with talent and giveaways once I reach that milestone! 🙂
