Crazy Crafters July Blog Hop with special guest Tami White

Hello and welcome to our July blog hop! We are in for a treat as we have the multi talented Tami White as our special guest!  She is so inspirational and highly creative. I love watching her video tutorials and she makes it so much fun and easy to create stunning cards. She has so many fabulous ideas! As part of the blog hop we are CASEing one of her cards and that is "Copy And Selectively Edit". :) 

I have chosen to Case her fun and amazing "Penny Spinner Card" using the Shooting Star set. I was immediately drawn to this set when I saw it in the new catalogue for it's spinning effect. It's such a novelty and looks so much fun to give to someone and has that interactive appeal. Tami's video made it so easy and fun as always to create this card, as I wasn't sure how to make it at first. 

You can on click  the picture below to see how Tami made this amazing shooting star card. Tami has the best tips on how to make this and it works so well!

I had so much fun playing with this set that I decided to make three cards and showcase what you can create using all the cute images and sentiments from the set. The Shooting Star set comes in a  bundle with coordinating framelits dies which makes it a breeze to use.

Here they are:

Aren't they just adorable? All three cards have been ink blended for the background with white heat emboss and makes it pop with ink resist. I have inserted all the circular die cut pieces so it's a whole background. It also makes it easier to line up the middle circle as this is crucial to get the even spacing for the coin or washer to spin in place.

I have used fun foam on the back of the panels and have used  two five cent coins to create the spinner mechanism. 

To give dimension and interest to the main images  that is the bee, Moon, Earth and Star, I have added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter and used a clear glossy accent to give it that extra raise.

I have stamped the images with black Stazon ink and have used watercolour paper as I have used an aqua painter to colour in each image.

Ink blending for the outer space galaxy background.  :)

You're sweet as can bee

Ink blended colours: 

Background: Tempting Turquoise, Night of Navy

Images: Daffodil Delight, Peeka Boo Peach, Smoky Slate and Basic Black

Shoot for the Moon!

I have used Night of Navy cardstock for the front panel and adhered that on to an A2 top folding whisper white cardstock.

I have ink blended the Night of Navy cardstock with Night of Navy and Black Memento inks just to darken it a bit and give that night sky. It also makes the stars pop even more.

The sentiment has been white heat embossed on vellum and I have wrapped this around the front panel and tucked in the excess as it's a great way to cover up the adhesives.

You're out of this world!

I have ink blended the background using Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry inks and came in with black memento ink around the edges to give that outer space galaxy look using the stars from the set.

You can just see the five cent coin underneath the star. I totally agree with Tami that they are like a toy once you see them spinning around. I could just keep doing it all day hehe. I hope you enjoyed these cards and found inspiration. I highly recommend this set - you'll have so much fun making them and the creativity is endless.
