You Are My Sunshine Spinner Cards


I just want to pop in to quickly share these cards I made for a summer swap I'm having with some of my local friends.

I created a spinner card for the first time not too long ago and I decided I wanted to make another design of one for the swap.  In case you missed my previous post I'll briefly explain that a spinner card like this is made using 2 pennies with a pop dot in the middle.  The image goes back and forth, spinning around along the track created in the card.  There are some great tutorials on Youtube of how to make them.

The patterned paper is from Die Cuts With a View.  To cut the spinner track I used a rectangle and a couple circles in my Gypsy that I stretched and manipulated.

The sentiment is from the Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge.  I added some little doodle dots with my Sakura white gel pen.  I layered it onto some purple cardstock, with some Lavender Stickles along the edges.  Behind that piece I used 2 pieces of green that were border punched with the Stampin' Up Scallop Edge Border Punch.
 
The sunshine I used is from Create a Critter, but I hid the face using my Gypsy and then stamped a cute little one on using my Peachy Keen stamps from the Dolly Dumplins face assortment set.  Of course I couldn't resist adding some bling, so I used some yellow Stickles too.
 
These really are such fun little interactive cards to make.  Here's a photo of the whole set of 8 that I created.
