On a whim, I sketched out this idea I had for a penny spinner card, which involved rotating the slider channel upside down. Whaaaaat…? I know; I’m just weird that way… !!! *chinkle* Watch the Hyperlapse video to see the creative process from start to finish!
Make sure your foam mounting tape does not impede the movement of the penny-slider along the channel.
Double-layer your foam tape to provide enough clearance for the mechanism to spin/slide freely.
The 3D adhesive foam dot I used to make my penny spinner was from my stash and I had thrown the packaging away so I do not know the source. But, it was 1/8″ thick, and approx. 1/4″ in diameter.
My spinner/slider cards tend to perform best with ROUND pop up dots, but these can be hard to find nowadays because manufacturers seem to be making only square ones… BUT…
You can actually DIY your own ROUND self adhesive pop up dots by applying Be Creative Tape to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam and then punching through it with a 1/4″ hole punch.

SUPPLIES LIST (includes affiliate links at no cost to you):
Couldn’t resist taking all these little fruits and quickly watercoloring them on a simple notecard–You may not be able to tell unless you click on the pic to enbiggan it, but they’re all sugared up with some glitter glue for extra sparkle and fun! :)
These fruity die cuts were die cut from watercolor paper, watercolored and then 3D popped up over a wash of blue–to enhance the details of the slice and wedge, I free-handed a wriggly, skinny line with a fine tip black marker after they were dry. Glossy Accents makes ‘em juicy…!
I love this pineapple stamp–pineapples just remind me of my mama and make me smile–I simply gold embossed this one and then used some pretty patterned papers that had gold foiling, and some glittery gold washi tape and an acrylic gold accent to set the whole thing off! All that gold makes it feel so luxe and fancy!
Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by my place today, and your next stop along the way is the fabulous
Because resistance is futile. Gloriously sweet, prickly dimension and detail…
Used my Peerless watercolors this time around. And, I was glad to have the forethought of putting paper towel underneath my project as I watercolored because the paint did seep through the cut lines, naturally. Avoided a hot mess. *more fist pumping*
I like using Distress Paint in Black Soot for spatter; its thicker consistency allows for the color to remain a deep rich black and doesn’t get watered down. It’s also permanent once it’s dry; if I wanted to watercolor over the top of it, the spatter would remain undisturbed. Muy awesome. :)
When I don’t have a stamp with precisely the phrase I need/want, I rely on my Dymo Label Maker…
TO MAKE THIS CARD:
Trim watercolor paper to 4 x 5.25″.
Die cut pineapple into paper.
Color as desired. (I watercolored)
Dry/heat set with embossing gun.
Spatter with black acrylic paint. Dry/heat set with embossing gun.
Pop up details, mount to base card (Standard A-2, 4.25 x 5.5″)
Generate custom greeting with label maker & affix to card as shown.
And, Bob’s yer uncle. ;)
