I have never made a spinner card before and I thought the little underground sign in this fab Penny Black Love London set was perfect as a spinner :-) I spent ages playing with this lol :-) I bought this London Stamp set when I won a Hero Arts set on the Sir Stampalot Challenge Blog Hop ( thanks Pinky) and the lovely Janice very kindly popped this stamp set in the same parcel :-)



I started with a plain white card, then layered with some red then white again. I cut out the oval shape on the Silhouette Cameo machine, this is not the right shape, a rounded rectangle would have been better ,,,,, next time ,,, :-) I stamped the bus as though it was just exiting the card/ bus stop ,, , coloured with copics and added star dust glitter to the heart and used a clear gel pen on ‘London’ I added some red buttons from Crafty Ribbons on the wheels and popped a black gem in the middle and another 3 in the top R corner. I then finished with some faux stitching around the edges. I popped everything up on pop dots and made the spinner using 2 50 cent coins,, quite heavy so it does spin well :-)



Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so pop on over to the Inspiration blog to see them :-)

Challenges :

Craft Your Days Away ,,, Red/White Blue

Totally Gorjuss ,,, Something New , new stamps and new spinner technique ,, for me.

So inventive! I love the slider element. Sometimes they can be quite plain but yours is beautiful. I can remember running for London buses just like that in the dim and distant past!!:o
