I LOVE this new spinning card die! And of course the stamp set that goes along with it. I had the honor of demoing the bundle on Saturday at Terri's Catalog Extravaganza. It was such a great time. I demoed back in February and had a great time then too. I'm hoping to be asked again to demo. I LOVED every minute of it! I got to sit between two fabulous ladies, Colleen and Julie! The day couldn't have been better!
This was one of the cards I made for the event. I stamped the beehive using Crushed Curry card stock and ink. There was a Framelit to cut it out for me! All of the bees were stamped using black Memento ink. All were cut using the coordinating Framelit dies. Had there been no die for those little bees, there would only be three on my card!! After fussing cutting 3 I would have quit. I could have cut hundreds with that die! SO fun and super easy!!!
Stampin' Up! has some new fun foam tape in strip form. It's twice the thickness of a Dimensional. It's perfect for making these cards. Plus it's perfect for shaker cards. You can go around the whole circle on a shaker card without a single gap! For this card I did have a gap on the center left and right sides. You need to have room for the pennies to spin around. It's not fun if they don't spin. A little gap on the back is fine, it isn't that big, so there was still a lot of support for the weight of the pennies. You can use washers, but sad to say, pennies were cheaper. I just love how the bee in the circle would just spin around the area. It's SO darn cute.
I LOVED playing with this set. I have more cards that I will share with you soon.
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
