My First Spinner Card

Hi, everybody! Today I'm sharing another card inspired by My Favorite Things - MFT 2018 Creative Olympics. I'm competing in Event 3 Crafty Biathlon again! For this event, we were to choose a technique and card type from the list provided. I chose Dry Embossing for technique and Spinner for card type.

I was able to accomplish the dry embossing using a die and embossing mat.  To accentuate  the dry embossing, I sponged Distress Ink with an ombre effect.  This is my first spinner card!  I had a few problems but in the end I was able to get it to work. The kitty is suspended with silver thread.  Just turn the kitty in one direction several times and then when the card is opened, it spins!  It's so cute!

Check out the MFT products I used:

  • Stamps: My Favorite Things - I Knead You (cat, sentiment)
  • Dies: My Favorite Things - I Knead You, Heart Border Staggered (for dry embossing), Coffee Cup (smallest heart), Stitched Circle Frames
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
  • Colouring medium: Markers
  • Other: Ranger White embossing powder, Posca white paint marker (dots on box), heart sequins from my stash

My colour combo was inspired by My Favorite Things MFT Colors 87:
