Stamp Review Crew – Flower Shop

Flower Shop banner

Good morning!  It’s cold here (as you would expect during winter!) – what’s the weather like in your part of the world?

Today brings another Stamp Review Crew post and we’re taking you on a Flower Shop journey.  It’s another fabulous coordinating set with a stamps and a matching punch!!!

 

These hops go around (and around), so if you’re after the full set of inspiration, keeping clicking ‘next’ until you end up back here – or wherever you started.

Maybe you started with Betty over at Kitty Stamps – which means there’s a lot lot of fun to go!

Or maybe you started with Shana’s Stress-Free Stamping and I am your last stop – did you love all the projects???

Or maybe you hopped backwards and I’ve got that all wrong!

No matter which way you go, these hops are so much fun, with lots of talented designers and there’s {ALWAYS} a heap of projects that are on my ‘CASE’ list.

Many thanks to Tanya for her tireless & super proficient organisation of the hops!


This project started for me as soon as I opened my packet of Affectionately Yours DSP.  It contains 2 sheets of 5 double sided designs and 2 sheets of amazingly fancy single sided designs.

My card uses one of the fancy designs.  Although possibly too beautiful to cut up, I wanted to show off the fabulous copper colour that’s new to the Stampin’ Up! range this year.

So, with my big-girl-brave knicks on, I cut the pretty DSP and made a Flower Shop spinner card using the coppery floral DSP & a copper embossed Flower Shop flower.

I’ve used money (2 x 10c pieces) to keep my flower on the circular track – but washers of the same size also work.

Many thanks to Cheryl who saved the day by sending me a copper embossed flower to finish my project.  I had it all planned out… but my embossing powder didn’t arrive in time!  I’m thankful for all the lovely stamping friends I’ve made simply by sharing a love of paper.

I wanted to show off the full effect of this card with a video.  This is my first time taking, editing & uploading a video.  It’s super simple, but gives you an idea how the spinner card works.


How to make your own spinner card:

  • Cut a piece of cardstock/DSP to fit your card base (mine is 3-5/8″ x 5-3/8″)
  • Run through the Big Shot with the circle framelit from the Sliding Star set or if you don’t own this, with 2 circle framelits (one large, one small placed where you want your ‘track’)
  • Remove the “O” shape left by the framelits and stick the remaining two pieces (your card front and circle) to your card base using dimensionals or foam tape.
  • Sit a coin/washer under the “O” gap created by your circle and card front.  Attach a dimensional to the coin/washer and place another coin/washer on top.  This will create a fixture that runs around the ‘track’.
  • Attach your flower (or other embellishment) to the top coin/washer with glue dots.

Did you notice the Sliding Star Framelits & Shooting Star stamp set in the new catalogue?  This cute little set lets you make spinner/slider cards with all the hard work done for you.  I’m working on some more spinner cards this week and will share soon!

Until then, keep hopping!  Next stop is Shana!  Kelly x
