Today Calls for Spinner Card with Samantha

Today we’re sharing an amazing spinner card from designer Samantha Mann. It was one of our most popular cards from last month’s release and there were so many Sweet fans asking for a tutorial on how to recreate it! She was happy to oblige and has used an fun collection of Sweet Stamps on her card.

Hello and happy Tuesday!
Samantha here, and I’m sharing an easy (I might even say cute!) tutorial with you!

I made this card for the May release with the Clean it Up stamp set, and I thought it would be fun to share how to make your own spinner/interactive card, too!

So, let’s grab your favorite Sweet stamps, and get to it!
I have to say, one of the most incredible things about Sweet Stamp Shop stamps, is that they all go SO well together! I used lots of different sets for this card because I decided to make this spinner, foodie themed!! 🙂

I used the Bacon Break, Donut Forget, Fruity, Scouts for Him and Little Cooler stamp sets! 🙂

I stamped, colored with copics and then fussy cut them out!
TIP: you can stamp directly onto your card base and color them that way to save time! You can also use ANY coloring medium you prefer!

Once they images were finished, I moved onto the card front. All I did was used some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and a striped stencil to add some subtle color to the background! (ACK: I couldn’t resist sprinkling a little water on top, to watch it react with the Distress Ink!)
TIP: you can use patterned paper, or a plain white/kraft/colored cardstock too!!

Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from Mermaid Shelfie onto some black cardstock and cut it into a banner shape! Then I used a tiny hole punch to make a hole in the center of the phrase!
TIP: Make sure to space your phrase so you have room for your brad in the center. Also, if you don’t have a small hole punch, just use the pointy part of the brad or the tip of an exacto knife to make the hole!

You’ll make a hole into your card front, too. Be sure to center it as best you can! I just eyeball mine!

I also like to add a little foam tape under the spinner – this gives banner a bit of lift, and frees up contact space between the banner and the spinner!
Major TIP: Be sure to leave the back of the foam tape ON!! You only want the foam to stick to the banner, NOT the card front! Ha!

Lastly, I adhered the cute little treats, and it was ready to spin!

I hope you found this tutorial easy and FUN!!
If you have any questions, be sure to leave them below! What Sweet Stamp Shop images would you use to create a spinner card? They’re my new obsession! Ha!

Enjoy, and thank you for spending some of your Tuesday with me! Be sure to follow Sweet Stamp Shop on Instagram and Facebook for all of the latest news!
