Shoot for the Stars

Hi Everyone,

How are you all today? I have been busy busy what with the school holidays and Coffee and a Card. It just seems that during the holidays every time I sit down to craft, my children want to do something……….not that I mind though as I think that, In a year or two it will probably be uncool to hang out with Mummy!! So I will treasure it while it lasts.

Anyway on to today’s card. I am using the Shooting Star stamps from Stampin! Up with the matching Sliding Star framelits. I love playing with these framelits and you can stick just about anything on to spin!



The dimensions I used are pretty much my standard.

All dimensions are in inches

Soft Sky Card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 scored at 4 1/8

( The reason I do this is I like to use Stampin Up Crumb cake medium envelopes)

Night of Navy card stock 5 1/4 x 3 7/8

scrap of whisper white and a scrap of Daffodil delight.

All I simply did was stamp the little star randomly all over the card in versa mark. Then cover with Silver embossing powder. I love the effect that embossing gives. It makes the background extra special! Then I placed what i like to call the smiley face frame lit at the top portion of the card and cut out using the big shot. I then stick this layer to the base layer of the card using Dimensional. I use 6 with also sticking some in the middle, be careful though as you don’t want to interfere with the mechanism.

For the Star spinner I simply stamped it on to whisper white and using a blender pen coloured the image in. Once that was done I used the 1 inch circle punch for the star to rest on as I found it I did not use anything you could see the pennies below.




For to make your card slide you need two 1p pieces and a dimensional. YOU NEED TO TRIM THE DIMENSIONALS CORNERS OFF TO MAKE IT MORE ROUNDED SO THAT IT WILL SPIN FREELY. So sorry for shouting!! I have forgot to do that important part quite a few times and wondered why it would not spin! Stick the pennies together using the same dimensional and squeeze it into the gap so the penny has the card sandwiched in the gap where the dimensional is. TIP YOUR CARD TO MAKE SURE IT MOVES.  (again sorry with the shouty! I have done the next part a few times and had to rip it off to start again) Once it moves freely you can stick your star on top of the pennies. Walla!! Spinner card.

Now all you have to do is your greeting and you are done. So fast and so simple to do. As I said I love doing these cards and my children love making them too.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. I will catch up with you on Friday hopefully with a video linked to my post on my final spinner card for the week.
