Shooting Star at Night

Have you ever started a background and had it get totally out of hand?  Ha!  That’s what this one did!  I masked off a moon and then blended Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist and Night of Navy on white card stock and then dropped water on it and soaked it up with a paper towel.  I used a silver gel pen to make little dot-stars and then decided it needed foil stars – and more stars.  It was out of control!  Finally I die cut the slider die from Shooting Star and add the star spinner. I colored the “flame” with Copics and paper pieced the star in foil.  Well it’s something 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Crazy 4 Challenges – Sketch

PIU Midnight the Bat 02

This challenge uses the sketch (which I sort of followed!)  I started with a huge 6 x 8 card and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Midnight the Bat and Halloween Scene dies. He is hanging out on Stampin Up’s Sliding Star Framelits so he spins around the tree branch.

Spinners are hard to put down!

The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Spooky fun and the DSP is the new Halloween Night Specialty paper.  Check out the other Crazies designs for this sketch!  Hugs, Fran

Seaside Shore Spinner

Seaside Shore 01

Yesterday I showed you a spinner made with the stamp set Shooting Star.  Today I thought I’d play with another set that works with the Sliding Star Framelit – Seaside Shore.

I stamped the anchor (embossed in silver), sentiment and fish, colored them and cut them out.  The seaweed was stamped directly on the By the Shore Designer Series paper and colored with Copic markers.  The fish spins on 2 pennies sandwiching a Dimensional.

I also added some of those little accent pieces you can buy that go in vases.  (I have 3 jars of them!   What was I thinking!)  Enjoy the sweet fishy.  Hugs, Fran

Shooting Star

Shooting Star 01

You may have guessed by now that I love cards that pop, move, shake, pull or – in this case – spin!  This new stamp set and matching die help you easily make a spinner card. The set is called Shooting Star and the die is the Sliding Star Framelit.  It can be done in a complete circle or a half circle.

There are 2 pennies on either side of a Dimensional that make the spinner work.  It’s really fun to watch it spin.  This card is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
