Easel cards are easy to make and you could make them in any shape you want to, so I tried to make one in a football shape and this what I came up with. So if you look at a football this is what it kind of look like. I colored all my stamped images and added them to the card and this is what I got. I hope you enjoy my card. It was fun to make. Have a super week.

Harry Potter

My grandson has been reading all of Harry Potter Books and he enjoys the books so I thought I would make his birthday card this year with Harry Potter on it. I found this wonderful drawing in the coloring book section for Harry Potter. Their are a lot of wonderful coloring book pictures so it was hard to choose. I do want to mention that it said the drawing was by Eruadan, what a stunning job. I just love the drawing.

Fly with me

Happy Monday to everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful week end. In a way it was a sad one remembering all that happened 10 years ago, the things all Americans have lost but then it is good to see that people have moved on with their lives. This will never be forgotten and I personally think they are doing a wonderful job in New York City to preserve everything so for generations to come they w8ill be able to understand what had happen. God bless everyone one of those families and all of our Soldiers.

Have a Magical Day

We are starting Challenge #26 at Color Me Creative Classroom and if you color your images with copic markers you are invited to join in on our challenge. We love to see all levels of work and our theme for our challenge is FALL OR HALLOWEEN. Our challenge will end on September 16, 2011 at 8pm.
Here are some samples for the FALL THEME and for the HALLOWEEN THEME. Our Sponsor for this challenge is THE STAMP FAIRY you can win a $15.00 gift certificate for her store and Suzanne is giving away a Package of Cryogen Cardstock. These are some great prizes.

The type of card I made is called a Spinner card. You can fine the directions here to make one yourself, they are easy to make and the kids just love them. What happens if you have never seen one is the sentiment spins around from side to side when you more the card and spins. The images I used are all from Stamp Fairy the house is called Halloween 2, Tommy Wizard was a Freebie sentiment, Tommy Wizard #1 and Pumpkin was also a Freebie. I had merged all my image together and after I did that The Stamp Fairy came out with the Pumpkins so I cut them out for the card.

To create the area for the spinner.
Stampin’ Up punch called Word Window.
Stampin’ Up 1 1/2 inch to punch out the sentiment.Stampin’ Up.
One Stampin’ Dimensional self adhesive foam mounts, they work really well because of the shape.
I also use one penny that gives a little weight so it moves real easy.


You punch out the area were you want for the spinner to be then you put (I used my sentiment) on the front of the card and the pull the paper off the foam mount and stick that to the sentiment and now pull the foam mount off the other side and stick that to the penny. You are going to have to put foam tape all around your card so it is lifter up so your spinner has room to spin. You can more your card side to side and see the spinner spin. I only made a small area for the spinner you can make your area as big as you want. DONE.

Here is the close up of the images. Roof E17, E15, E13, E11. Front B14, B12, B000. Window and Sentiment Y15, Y13, Y11. Door and Owl E37, E35, E34, E33. Pumpkins YR68, YR65, YR61. Stem E34, E35. Grass, Leaf and Wizard shirt YG67, YG63, YG61. Wizard Jacket and Hat C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, Pants BG75, BG72. Shoes E35, E31, E30. Hair E31, E30,YR21. Skin E11, E00. Background BG0000, BG000, BG10, B91.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day and got some need rest. We went from the 90’s over night to the 60’s the next day. I’ll take the 60’s anytime I love summer but I hate it when you can not enjoy it because it is so HOT and humid it is no fun. Have a great week everyone.
