Guest Designing for a brand new stamp line: FLORA & FAUNA

Florafauna octagon greenhouse peek

Sharing a sneak peek–I’m guest designing for Flora and Fauna Clear Stamps today as they debut their new line!  I’ve always been a huge fan of hand-drawn stamp images and every single set just stole my heart instantly! Absolutely LOVE! See the full project and how-to-make-it deets HERE.

In the meantime, I’m up to the gills prepping for a LIVE class I’m teaching tomorrow at Impress in Tukwila!  And, there may be some Flora & Fauna Stamps involved there, too… *wink*  Just sayin’…

Happy Friday, y’all!

 

SUNSHINE PENNY SPINNER-SLIDER CARD

Sunshine spinner web 01

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!

TIPS:

  • 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.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

mmh mar 2017 fungi web 01

I got such a kick out of this fun set, called  You’re a Fungi (CM158) .  It’s got some great puns! *big cheesy grin*

 

mmh fungi web det

Living in the PNW, snails (and slugs!) and mushrooms abound, and this set just grabbed me instantly–especially with all the included punny sentiments!

I loved the above version, in charcoal and white with the strip of wood veneer–awesome masculine card, UKWIM?

 

mmh thanks mush web01

But, then I couldn’t resist trying a similar version, in color. So fun!
