A Fairy Spinner Card

Interactive cards are so much fun…to make and to give…I don’t know why I wasn’t making them more often…today I’m sharing my very first slider card…

I chose a light blue textured cardstock for the card base and then die cut watercolour cardstock for the front of the card using a stitched rectangle die….I then sponged in some distress inks to create the background of the front panel..I have used shaded lilac,wilted violet and seedless preserves here…then using blueprint sketch distress ink and stars stencil, Printed the stars all over the panel…I also splattered some white paint on it..
Next,I started to assemble the spinner part of the card…firstly I cut out a coloured in image of the little fairy and then prepared the spinner disc by adhering two circle die cuts on each side of the disc…one circle gets attached to the back of the fairy image…
I then die cut the spinner channel out of the top layer I prepared earlier and adhered craft foam behind the front panel…I slotted in the fairy into the channel and then adhered the panel to the front of the card…
The spinner part is now ready,so all I had to do now was to add the sentiment and a few embellishments…
I have added a small video on my Instagram account if you’d like to see how this spinner card works/spins..
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Happy crafting…!!

Post#188 – Card For A Friend

This card was a mixed bag in terms of how I wanted it to turn out….though still quite close to how I planned it, one step didn’t give good results and another one turned out fantastic….
The card base is plain black 4.5 x 5.75 inches…the top layer is made from watercolour cardstock on which I have used a stars stencil to dab Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder…somehow the stars didn’t come out that well and that was a bit of a disappointment but I carried on…..I then washed the top layer with three shades of blue and let it dry….
Then I prepared the Polaroid frame for the sentiment….since the sentiment was a bit wider than the original frame,I die cut only half the die and moved it a bit and cut the rest of it….this is a technique I have seen in quite a few tutorials by Jennifer McGuire…I hadn’t tried it much and when I saw the results,I was extremely pleased…I used a grey paper as the backing of the frame and stamped the sentiment on it…
I then used a small paperclip to attach a note paper with the Polaroid frame and attached these to the card…I have used a few silver star sequins to decorate the card as well…
Hope you liked this card…

On the top layer I have used distress inks and stars stencil to create a background….and stamped a ‘hip hip hooray’ stamp with Grape Soda Ranger Dye Ink….I used a tag die and stamp to create a tag to decorate the card..the top tag also has a die cut word ‘celebrate’….

Post#122 – Reindeer & Stars Card

I’ve started my Chirstmas cards with a simple one this year….and I used one of my favourite stamps for this card….I love this flying reindeer stamp from Hot Off The Press Inc.
I chose a plain blue card base and a white top layer for this card….on the top layer I used the stars stencil with blue ink and covered about 3/4th of the space….I then stamped the reindeer stamp in a way that it seems to be flying among the stars…
I stamped the sentiment on a white banner and added a wider blue banner underneath….
Hope you liked this card…
