Scurry Over Spinner Card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Y'all know how I love creating interactive cards, so today's is another spinner card!  This time I made a "wreath" (sorta) using the pine needle die and the pinecone image from the Scurry Over rubber stamp set, both are part of November's Club La-La Land Crafts kit.  These spinners are so easy to make, and I'll show you how I did it below, but first here's a short clip showing how easily it spins!

Button spinner card, November Club La-La Land Crafts

Additional products used:

  • Cut your Kraft cardstock base at 5.5" x 11" and score in half at 5.5"
  • Cut white cardstock mat to 5 1/4" square and adhere to card base.
  • Cut your designer paper to 5 1/8" square and adhere to white layer.
  • Find the center of your designer paper layer (you can do this by using a T-ruler) and place a mark.  
  • Glue a button  that is a li'l bit smaller than the SMALLEST die in the Double Stitched Circle Dies.  Be sure the button is not humped in the middle - it should be somewhat flat across the top.
  • Create a doughnut as the spinner 
    • Stack a 5" piece of copy paper onto your wood grain designer paper (or solid color cardstock of your choice)  and CUT together using LARGEST die from the Double Stitched Circle Die
    • Fold the copy paper circle in half and again in half again to find the center of your circle.  Pierce a small hole in the center of that circle where the lines intersect.
    • Unfold that circle and place on top of your wood grain designer paper circle and either pierce the center hole in that circle, or make a mark using a pen 
    • Place the SMALLEST circle die in the center of your larger circle and add washi tape or other low-tack tape to hold the die in place.  Add the copy paper circle directly behind that circle, lining it up (you might add a li'l piece of washi tape to adhere the 2 circles together) and CUT
    • Now, using the copy paper circle, place both the Largest and Smallest circle dies onto the paper circle and place on top of a piece of cardstock (can be white cardstock) and CUT
    • Glue your 2 cardstock circles together with the BACKS facing each other.  (This step just helps the spinner to move better, so you don't have the rough side after die-cutting on the backside.)
  • Place the doughnut over your button and with your finger on the button, spin the doughnut to make sure it spins nicely.
  • Glue a stamped & colored image to the top of your button, or you can glue a circle cardstock with a sentiment on it.  
  • Decorate around the doughnut!  Be careful not to get your items too close to the image on your button or it will get caught up and not spin freely.  
Copic Colors:
Squirrels - E40, E41, E43, E50, W3
  • Cheeks - R20, R00
  • Scarf  & Cup - B00, B02
  • Pinecone - E40, E41, E43, E29

Multi-Tiered Pop Up Penguins

 Welcome friends!  I had a great time last night on a Zoom call with my SU! upline and 8 others in her downline group - so fun to "meet" them and put faces to names and craft together - for 3 hours!  :)  We all worked on our own projects and they were so diverse, love it!   For my zoom project, I created a multi-tiered pop up box card --- no surprise there, right guys?!  BUT, this one was on a much larger scale and needs a 6 1/8" square envelope, which I had to make myself, but with the help of my nifty envelope punch board , it was pretty easy... PRETTY being the operative word as I used some the same Whimsy & Wonder dsp from SU! as I used on my card!   I will include the measurements for making this card below my photos, so keep scrolling :)  The Whimsy & Wonder dsp has holographic striped paper that I used on the sides of my box.   These cute penguins and matching punch are bundled in the new Holiday Catalog, July - Dec. 2021, and so is the Whimsy & Wond

Tutorial - Box Cards W/O Dies

 Hello again!  I'm back with 2 more box cards using some brand new stamps and dies from the upcoming SU! Holiday mini catalog & SAB and a tutorial on how you can make these without using special dies! First I'll show you a card that uses special dies that make it super quick & easy to create the basic box base to showcase all your fun images, and then I will show you how you can make a very similar card without using the dies.  This is a fun new stamp set featured in the upcoming SU! Holiday Mini Catalog called "Penguin Place" - I bought the bundle, so it has a punch that goes with it to punch out the sitting/standing penguin outline, the white inner piece, and the feet.  I had to fussy cut the trees, gifts, hats & scarves and the sliding penguin.  This is one set I wish they had made a die set to match for all those smaller pieces.   The Box base is created with dies by  My Favorite Things  called " Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics ".  My

Multi-Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Origami 4-Drawer Easel Card

 Happy Sunday crafty friends!  I was asked for instructions after posting pictures of this box card on a FB group, so here it is!   While I am not the original creator of the 4-drawer easel card that were all the rage 10 years ago, I thought of a way to create the drawers from designer paper ,  when others were creating it using cardstock.  Some had dies that cut the drawers and others were clever enough to come up with the correct measurements to cut and score and tape, but I couldn't wait to find what I was looking for so I just made a simple origami fold box for the drawers and wha-la!  It worked ... and is prettier than plain cardstock IMO.  :)   So I'm here to share it with y'all again, this time using Stampin' Up!'s Ornate Garden Suite (stamps, dies and paper!)   Supplies Needed: - (4) 6-inch pieces of designer series paper - (2) 4 ¾” coordinating designer paper (or can use same   as 6” pcs.) - (3) 8 ½ x 11” sheets of cardstock – can be same or different color
