"Anything Goes" IndigoBlu Blog Challenge (My Valentines Spinning Card)!

Hello Crafters,
Its that time again to get busy crafting and add a project to the IndigoBlu Blog Challenge.
Pretty much Anything Goes this month, just make sure you create something with the IndigoBlu stamps! 
But why stop there.......................

For this project I have used IndigoBlu Paints, MegaFlakes, Stencils and of course a couple of Stamps.

I have put a video together to help show you how to make this style of card. 
There are also some written instructions below.

First of all I painted a piece of card-stock using the English Cottage Artist's Acrylic Paint in Postbox Red then once dry, stamped out the Poppy Heart, first in Black Stazon ink then with FlitterGlu over the top of the black image. Lancashire Mega Flakes were then used to highlight all the details.
A  5  1/2" x 5  1/2" piece of white card was cut out and a 2  1/2" circle cut from the middle. I then used a stencil and stamp to put down some coloured layers without adding extra depth to the card which would stop the circle from spinning.

A  6 1/2" x 6 1/2" card base had a border of black ink sponged around it.

The stamped panel was then attached to the card base with double sided foam dimensionals,   and a  1  3/8" circle was punched out of white card and was attached to the underside middle of the black circle with a couple of foam dimensionals.
TIP- Keep the dimensionals away from cutout circle as the could restrict movement.

 Two 3/4" card disc's were punched out and foam dimensional's were used to stick the disc's together for the spinning element (See below) then use another dimensional to stuck down this piece onto the middle of the black circle.

The spinning element was then used to attach the card base and the black circle together'

The finishing pieces for the card were the Word Tiles. 
These were cut out of a sentiment which was stamped out of card from the stamp set 
Live, Laugh, Love!



I hope you have enjoyed watching the video on the making of this type of spinning card.
Further down this post are a couple of other moving cards made using different stamp sets.

Until next time!

Take care and have some crafting fun.
