Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

This Elf is not on a shelf, but is having trouble with his hat!

I hope my catchy title sparked your curiosity!  Some of my stampin' friends made a cute card this week in class that features the spinner design.  It's a mechanical card with a moving part. Here's my card and then I'll talk some more about it!

It's always hard to see moving parts in a still picture, but I'll try to explain it!  The elf is glued down to the background piece of paper, which is adhered to the card with Foam Adhesive Strips.  I made a penny sandwich with 2 pennies and a round adhesive dimensional in the middle and adhered the elf's hat to that. I carefully tucked the hat into the slot created by a framelit. The hat rolls back and forth along the slot and spins as it rolls. It's a fun concept and such a great idea for kids especially. Stampin'Up! has the framelits with coordinating stamps to create your own spinner card or you can do what I did and use the framelits with some Christmas stamps to create a seasonal look.

Here's a really helpful video from Stampin'Up! that explains the whole thing!

I hope you can find some time and a couple of pennies and create your own spinner card soon! They will bring a smile to anyone's face ;)

Have a fabulous weekend!
