“Birthday Wishes” Game Spinner Card

I think this Take a Spin stamp set is perfect for making birthday cards. Young or old, anyone would enjoy getting this type of card and spinning it over and over again. I know I do it when I’m making the cards!

The card base is So Saffron, layered with Chocolate Chip cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then, I used Nursery Suite Specialty DSP in the So Saffron/White pattern cut to 3 3/4″ x 3″. Above that, across the front of the card, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Pumpkin Pie.

I used Stampin UP Markers to color the stamp (direct to stamp), then colored in some of the images with the Markers as well. The colors I used were: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight.

The game board is layered on a 2″ square of Marina Mist card stock, and I used the Game Spinner Hands from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For more tips and tricks on using the Game Spinner Hands, see this card I made.

Finally, the sentiment at the bottom is from So Happy for You from the Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.

Something Sweet Gumball Machine for Boys


When I play with a stamp set, I like to make a few cards at once. It gives me a chance to try out different ideas, all of which won’t work on just one card. Yesterday I made gumballs with Circle Rhinestone Brads. Today, I used Rain Dots in these bright gumball colors.

The card base is Tempting Turquoise, layered with Tall Tales Designer Series Paper. The gumball machine from Something Sweet was stamped in Apricot Appeal Ink on Whisper White card stock. I trimmed the bottom part with scissors and the top circle was punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I added the adhesive backed Rain Dots to the circle portion and set them aside.

Before adhering the DSP to the base with Stampin Dimensionals, I punched a hole in the DSP with the 1 3/4 Circle Punch. I added a Sweet Treats Cup and removed the adhesive ring. Then, I put the circle with the Rain Dots behind the Sweet Treats Cup so that the edges of the circle touch the adhesive ring. This helps hold the circle in place. The bottom of the gumball machine was then adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Something Sweet in Real Red ink on Whisper White, punching it out with the Large Oval Punch and layering it onto a Real Red Scallop Oval Punch. That was attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
