The Paper Players - Theme Challenge #311

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog, today I decided to play along with 'The Paper Players' and their theme challenge - circles, circular card, or circle elements. I thought this was a good opportunity to get out a couple of my new sets that have circle images in them and put them together to create a new card. Here are the sets I used for the card:

Shooting Star Bundle

Superstar - Clear mount stamp set

Touches of Texture Stamp set

Here is my Card I created using these 3 sets:

I absolutely love these spinner cards - and thought I'd incorporate the tickets from the 'Superstar' set to be the part that spins around!

This card is also featured on the Crazy Crafter's Highlights - please click on the link to vote for my card.

I used the textures from the 'Touches of Textures' stamp set to create the background.

The ink colours used were:

Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Tempting Turquoise and Pool Party.

The card was mounted onto Dapper Denim Cardstock to tie in with the stamps used throughout the card. The heat embossed tickets were done using Crushed Curry Heat embossing powder. The Star and ticket at the bottom right was done using Gold Heat embossing powder.

Finally, the spinner was attached to 2 x 5cent pieces on a piece of dimensional to give it height and spin around. It worked nicely and the tickets covered the coins so you can't see them when it spins around.

Well that's it for me - hope you enjoyed the card and you get a chance to make one of these fabulous cards yourself. If you don't have a demonstrator - contact me to find out more about how you can purchase any of these items you see listed on my blog.
