Spinning Penguin Card!

Today, I wanted to share the cutest card ever and a quick video.  I made this card last Friday night at my friend Jeanne's stamp night.  This idea blossomed from a video I saw Connie Stewart doing on a spinning snowflake card.  Click on her name to watch that video too!

Here are the products you will need to make this card:

Creating the Spinning Penguin Card  

1. Card base – Tempting Turquoise – A2 size 8.5 by 5.5, scored at 4.25 
2. Emboss top half of turquoise with the softly falling folder 
3. Real Red Layer is cut at 4.5  by 3.25 
4. Whisper White is cut at 3 by 4.25 – punch the 1” circle in the lower right corner of white 
5. Now you can adhere the white to the real red (Note: Do Not adhere red to turquoise yet) 
6. Stamp penguin in black onto a scratch piece of Whisper White, color in beak and feet with Tangelo marker. 
Then cut your penguin out using your framelit.
7. Cut about 12” of turquoise baker’s twine 
a. On one end place twine between 2 dimensionals – kind of spread it out between sticky dimensionals (do not remove outside paper on dimensionals) 
b. On other end place twine between the 2 – ½” red circles you punched 
c. Place brad down between middle of the 2 dimensional side 
d. Now place brad through the middle of circle and real red.  Do not tighten brad too much or penguin won’t spin. 
e. Adhere your real red layer now to the turquoise embossed cover 
8. Now you need to adhere the penguin on top of double dimensional surface 
9. Wrap twine gently around penguin and pull gently. 
10. He should spin!!!!  

Note: Just be patient sometimes the sticky dimensionals or adhesive you used on penguin get him stuck a bit.  The more you play with it the better it gets.  I also found that it brad is too tight on back of real red you may need to loosen it a bit.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions.

Winter Pillow Box Video!!

Happy Day!!! I'm so excited to share this project with you!  I know I will be doing a lot of these over the holiday season.  Why? Because who doesn't love gift cards!  Shopping for others is not my forte but listening and knowing what they love is!  Which means I know exactly where to get them a gift card or certificate where they can pick out whatever they love.  Hmmm, which means I should probably leave a hint here for my kiddos and hubby..stamp n storage gift card please ;) I digress. 

Pool Party - I think I may be addicted. :)  I am loving this color with everything lately.  This pillow box can be used all year long - it is so versatile.  So, to show you how versatile it can be - check out my 2 pillow boxes below.  Totally different colors but both look great and actually this box would work in any color. 

Here is a list of the products used:

Flurry of Wishes Card!

Hello!  Today I have a winter card to share and a video.  Now some of you may say, this card looks familiar...well that's because I shared a picture of this same card earlier in the month but in a different color.  This time I used Pool Party versus Elegant Eggplant the first time.  I actually can't decide which one I like best :)  What do you think?

Here is a list of the products I used in this project.

Fall Card!

Happy Monday! Today, I have a video for you.  Yay!  I know it took me a while but my camera was giving me trouble.  I finally ordered a new battery so hopefully that will do the trick. Today's project features Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set. This is by far one of my favorite sets.  It is so versatile and can be used with many color combinations.  Not to mention I love the font on the sentiments.  I hope you enjoy the video and the project.  This is only my 2nd video ever so I'm still learning but I will share another Winter Video later this week.

Here is a list of the products I used in this project.
