Pootler's Design Team September, Week 4

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

I can't believe it's week 4 of this challenge already.
Today I decided to use the 'You put the Merry in my Christmas' stamp to make a spinner card.

You're my #1 Hero stamp set, Cherry Cobbler, Gold heat setting

I started with a card base of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I then die cut the circles out of another piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Stampin' Up! brought out a sliding star framelits die in the Annual Catalogue which makes these cards so easy to make. If you don't have the framelits you can use the layering circles framelits instead.

I stamped the sentiment on the bottom in versamark ink and heat embossed in gold. I also stamped the second smallest snowflake from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set on the circle and heat set that in gold embossing powder. I also dipped the edge of the circle in my versamark ink so I could give it a gold edge.  Then I stamped the smallest snow flake and punched out using the matching punch.

I used a piece of This Christmas DSP for the background. I then put it all together using the new Foam strips which makes it very quick and easy to assemble. I used two 5p pieces to make the spinner element and trimmed the edges off a Stampin' Dimensional before adhering them together.

I'm really pleased with this card. What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.
