DAWN’S BEE SPINNER CARD

GUESS WHO

DID YA MISS ME… sorry we took our first cruise in about 25 yrs and the first one was just a 3 day…so this 7 day to alaska was amazing… and that’s why its been a while since I posted….pictures from trip under eye candy.  LMAO…. I actually got ahead of myself and we haven’t gone yet… so no photos and you have had no time to miss me…lol…

A COUPLE OF HUGE HINTS.

  1. IF you don’t have any of the long sticky foam strips from STAMPING UP… GET THEM… THEY WORK SO WELL WITH THIS… and if you look at the video from SCS you will see that they use them in the corners and that’s easier then trying to curve them…so check it out and they are worth every penny but they are not expensive.
  2. There are round dots that I might have gotten at the dollar store I’ll scan them and post them below but they work great for the dots BETWEEN the pennies and no trimming however I did just small pieces of foam tape for the top of the pennies didn’t want to waste the dots …if you have some dots they will work but you need to double them in order for them to have enough space to roll properly…
  3. I did all of my cards using the nesting circles but as SCS says you need about 3/8″ between the circle in order for the pennies to roll around properly… my last effort I got a little too big with outside circle…not enough space on the outside edges… give yourself at least ¼ inch on each side of the outside circle… just my suggestion…

IF you receive DAWN’S posts than you know she did this one a while ago and I have a thing for bee’s and frogs…so this really appealed to me…plus rather than it just going across the card it goes around…pretty cool and yes of course SU has dies that but this for you but if you have circle dies already you can make your one..just make sure there is about ½” space between the circles and if you don’t have the magnetic platform then use a piece of light tack tape to hold them in place then just cut… WHEN I HAVE THE TIME…I plan to do this one with a FROG in the center and a bug/mosquito, fly going around the outside….and inside probably something like may all your wishes come true…lol…also just a HINT but at either JOANN’S or Michael’s K and company has a great packet of WINNIE THE POOH that has bee hive and bees in it….in case you don’t have stamps or want to cut them out if you… they are out of heavy cards stock too.

Ok I made the individual circles work… I use the outside circle that measured 2 ¾ inches and the inside circle was 2″.  I had round foam dots so I used them ..they came in two sizes and it turned out that you want the smaller one for the two pennies…or it won’t roll /spin well… so about ¼ inch round not the half inch…my frog was a big large but my mosquito on the small 1″ circle works just fine…. so play with what you have and see what you can come up.

SCS CIRCLE SPINNERSurprise… the SCS..posted the same card but they used the circle dies … and just taped them down as I suggested if you don’t have the magnetic plate…. this was cute and just showing you that you can use all kind of different stamps with this…

You will notice that they also used a square card rather than rectangle which does give you a bit more space to put the images and have them roll around….My second one was for a little girl that loves the movie FROZEN… so I have a snow flake spinning around the outside…pretty sure she is going to think this is amazing… she is only gonna be 3…so pretty easy to impress but she will also probably remove the penny…lol.. here is my FROZEN
