Today I created a card with a fun spinning element using the Mama Elephant stamp set “Little Snowman Agenda.”
I started out by stamping all of the snowmen in the stamp set. I stamped them with my MISTI onto Neehnah Solar White 110lb card stock with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink. Next I colored them all in using my Copic markers. Once they were all colored in I cut them out with my new Scan N Cut 2, which I got from my husband for our anniversary! Check out the video to see all of the coloring and for a fun announcement!
I die cut a circle out of Neenah Solar White and put it in my MISTI to stamp a sentiment. I chose a sentiment which says “Have a Magical Holiday” which is from another Mama Elephant stamp set that recently came out.
I am going to try explaining how the spinning element was created, but the best way to understand is to see the video. First I cut a piece of Desert Storm card stock to 5.5 by 5.5. Using two different sizes of circle dies I created some rings out of white card stock. I made two small rings and one large one. I used the inner circle of one of the rings as a guide to lay down a ring of doubled up foam tape on the middle of my Desert Storm card stock. I then placed the two smaller rings around the tape and then the larger one. The smaller rings keep the larger from laying completely flat against the Desert Storm card stock. I then adhered my circular sentiment piece to the foam tape, locking in the three rings.
I used Gina K Connect glue to glue snowmen all the way around the large ring. This ring spins around making the snowmen go around the sentiment. I glued my Desert Storm panel to a 6 by 6 white card base. The last thing I did was go around the border of the Desert Storm panel with a white gel pen doing some dashed lines.
