Gingerbread Man Spinner card using Scentsational Seasons from Stampin' Up!

Happy December My Stamping Friends! I LOVE this time of year, its getting colder outside (well, not today since its heading to 70 degrees in Northern VA!) and the anticipation of Christmas is so much fun. I LOVE making Christmas cards and sending them off to friends and family.

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my stamp club this month. Its a Spinner Card made with the gingerbread man from Scentsational Seasons stamp set from Stampin' Up!.

Holiday Collection framelits dies, Big Shot and colored Basic Rhinestones

My card base is gumball green and I used the Stampin' Up! Be of Good Cheer designer series paper for the first layer. I used a layer of very vanilla and then added a layer of cherry cobbler on dimensionals to give it some lift (in order to make the gingerbread man spin, more on that later on). I stamped the sentiment from the Come to Bethlehem stamp set. On a seperate piece of very vanilla cardstock, I stamped the gingerbread man from Scentsational Seasons and cut him out using the coordinating Holiday Collection framelits dies and my Big Shot.

To make the gingerbread man spin, I stuck two pennies together using a dimensional and slid that on the 'track' I punched out with my word window punch. Then I used a dimensional to attach the gingerbread man to the penny stack and away he went. I think this photo might help explain what I just tried to describe.

I topped my gingerbread man off with some basic rhinestones colored with a red sharpie marker (did you know you can color the Stampin' Up! basic rhinestones with sharpie markers??) and I stuck them where his buttons were. Since the rhinestones have a sticky back, they were so easy to add.

The card took less than 10 minutes to make and is a big WOW for kids and adults that haven't see a card spin before. Give it a try and let me know what you end up with. I'd love to check out your creations. Meanwhile, leave some love in the comment section on my blog. It always makes my day.

Make sure you come back tomorrow because I have challenged myself to post at least every week day in December. Lets see how I do.

And don't forget that the last day to purchase supplies from the current Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is January 2, 2013. If you want your goodies to arrive as a Christmas gift for someone, you should order before Dec 12th, but keep in mind that holiday shipping volumes are high at this time of year and you might want to consider ordering earlier than Dec 12th.

Have a super day today,
