Teacher Thank You Spinner Card | Lawn Fawn

Hey y’all! Today I am sharing a thank you card for a teacher and this card is special because it is a spinner card!! The stamp set I used for this card is the Thanks a Bushel set from Lawn Fawn.

I started this card by stamping a bunch of the apples and the basket of apples on Neenah cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I then stamped faces from the set on each of the apples. I colored in the images with Copic markers and then cut them out with my Scan N Cut.

I die cut a circle out of Lucky Clover cardstock from Gina K and a ring out of Green Apple cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I then stamped the Plank background from Simon onto a 4.5 x 4.5 piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock from Gina K. I adhered that background to a 5 x 5 card base made from Kraft cardstock.

Using foam tape around the inside of the Green Apple ring of cardstock I started making my spinner on the card. I closed it up with the Lucky Clover circle. I then glued the apples all around the spinner and the basket of apples to the center.

For my sentiment I stamped the Thanks a Bushel stamp on Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it to a strip. I popped that sentiment up with foam tape on the card. I then added a second sentiment to the inside of the card which says “for being a great teacher.”

For the finishing touches on the card I added highlights to the apples with a white gel pen.

Interactive Mermaid Spinner Card | Mama Elephant

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a really fun interactive card using the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant. First I stamped all of the images from the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set on Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them in using my Arteza watercolor markers and then I cut them all out with my Scan N Cut.

1.jpg

On a large piece of Bristol Smooth paper I blended a background with Distress Oxide inks. I used the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch. I then placed the Waves stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the background and blended over it with white pigment ink. Once that was dry I went over it once more with the Distress Oxide ink to darken it up a little.

2.jpg

I cut down my background panel to be 5.75 x 5.75. I then cut two different size rings out of Bristol Smooth paper with the Hero Arts nested circle dies. I blended over these circles trying to match the same blending on my background panel. I also cut a ring out of some thick, durable plastic which I cut from some packaging. I took the smaller of the two blended rings and glued it to the middle of the background.

Using the ring on the background as a guide I very carefully placed a long piece of doubled up foam tape around the inner circle to make a shaker area. Next I placed the plastic ring around the foam tape ring. I glued a piece of acetate to the second blended ring to make a window. I filled up the shaker area with clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe and Sea Glass sequins from Simon Says Stamp. I then closed up the shaker with the window piece.

I glued the little mermaid images that I colored all the way around the plastic ring. This ring is able to spin around because of the way it is put together. I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Mermaids stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on some Neenah Solar White cardstock with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. I popped up the sentiment on the bottom of the shaker and glued one of the mermaids on the shaker window.

For the finishing touches I first took a white gel pen and added highlights to all the mermaids. I also added some dots on the shaker ring to look like small bubbles. I glued three of the little fish images from the Little Mermaiden Agenda set across the shaker. Lastly, I added a few Raindrops embellishments from Lucy’s Cards.

Spinning Train Shaker Card - Mama Elephant's Little Agenda Trains

Today I created an interactive card using the Little Agenda Trains stamp set from Mama Elephant.

1.jpg

I started out by creating a background with Distress Oxide inks. I was going for a milky way look. I used the colors Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot. Once the blending was done I used a paintbrush with clean water to add some soft cloudy areas to the center of the sky. I soaked up the water with a paper towel with pulls up some of the ink. Next I used a small paintbrush to add some stars to the sky with my white Gansai Tambi paint.

2.jpg

I stamped a bunch of the images from the Little Agenda Trains stamp set from Mama Elephant onto some Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K amalgam ink. I colored these in using my Arteza Real Brush pens. Check out the video to see the coloring in detail! Once all of the coloring was done I used my Scan N Cut 2 to fussy cut all of the images.

3.jpg

The creation of the spinner and the shaker on this card is fairly complicated, so I highly recommend watching the video to get a better understanding. First I used my Hero Arts nested circle dies to cut out all of the circles and rings that were needed. On the acetate circle I stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Scripty Xmas stamp set with Versamark ink. I embossed it with a white embossing powder. Using one of the rings that I created as a guide, I laid down a ring of doubled up foam tape on the sky background. This is going to be the shaker area. Next I placed three of the rings around the foam tape circle. I added some sequins to the shaker area and then closed it up with my circle of acetate. To finish up the spinner/shaker I glued a ring to the acetate to cover up the foam tape.

Using my Gina K Connect glue I adhered all of the images that I colored to the spinner on my card. Next I added some details and highlights with a white gel pen. I added little dots with the gel pen connecting the train cars. To finish up the card I took a sliver paint marker and added some dashed lines around the inner ring.

Spinning Snowmen Card - Using Mama Elephant Stamps

Today I created a card with a fun spinning element using the Mama Elephant stamp set “Little Snowman Agenda.”

1.jpg

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!

4.jpg

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.

3.jpg

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.

Mama Elephant Dragon Wishes - Interactive Card

Today I have another interactive spinner card using the Mama Elephant stamp set "Dragon Wishes." This spinner card is slightly different from my last one though.

47.jpg

The first thing I did was stamp all of my images on Bristol Smooth paper using my misti tool. The reason I used Bristol Smooth paper is because I colored in these images with my Arteza Real Brush Pens, and they work best on this kind of paper.

46.jpg

The background is some very simple Distress Oxide blending using Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick. To create the spinner portion of the card I used my circle dies to die cut a ring out of the blended background. I then used the circle dies and cut out a ring in some white card stock where the inner portion of the ring was one size smaller than the inner ring on the background, and the outer portion of the ring was one size bigger than the outer ring on the background. To understand this better see the video I have posted below. I then blended some Fossilized Amber on the white ring so that it would match the background.

45.jpg

This ring that I created is the spinner of my card, which all of the little images are glued on. So If you look at the video you can see how all the little dragons and the clouds spin and go around in a circle.

Check out the video below to see how this card was made:
