Coffee Art Spinner Card

Hi Folks! Kelly Griglione here with a fun, interactive card for your favorite coffee lover! The new Coffee Art set is loaded with all sorts of different art you can add to your coffee. And why pick just one?! I sure didn’t want to, so for my first design team post I set about creating a spinner card featuring ALL the coffee art!  

No special dies needed, just some good old-fashioned construction skills that I’m going to share here. To begin with, I designed the top of the card with all the cute coffee cups, and picked one of the coffee cups to showcase the changing art inside. For that cup I cut a circle out of the inside to make a window.  

For the mechanism inside I cut a circle from brown cardstock (if you don’t have a circle die, just trace around a tin can or something else in your kitchen). Then I poked a hole in the center and put the tip of a pencil through so I can mark where it should be attached to the card base. At this point you should also line up the top of the card over the brown circle to make sure the art will show through the window in the coffee cup. This is when I realized the brown circle was a little too small to hang over the edge for it to be spun. No worries, I just cut a larger white circle and adhered it underneath the brown circle. Then I put a brad through the middle of the circles to attach them to the card base.  

To make sure the art is stamped in the right place, I divided the brown circle in 6 equal sections and lined up the top of the card over everything. I stamped the coffee art through the window of the coffee cup, spun the circle to the next section, stamped another coffee art, spun the circle, stamped, spun, stamped, spun, etc.

To make sure the brown circle spins freely, I built up some layers around it.

Then I adhered the layers to the card base, and attached the brown circle spinner with a brad to the base. The top of the card is adhered to the layers. Now I can add the rest of the coffee cups and sentiment to the top of the card.

And here it is all assembled!

As you spin the circle, a new piece of coffee art appears! The recipient can have a new card almost every day of the week.  

And here are all the different variations! Would you like to see it in action?

Fun, right?! I really enjoy making interactive cards like these. It’s a challenge to see if I can take an idea and make it work.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this spinner card take place, and maybe have some ideas of your own to try!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sneaky Kitties and Evergreen Foliage

Welcome everyone… Annette Allen here with you today to share my first design team post on the new Evelin T. Designs blog. I am so excited to be a part of Evelin’s new adventure. Today I created two cards using Sneaky Kitties and Evergreen Foliage stamp set.   

First up are those cute little Sneaky Kitties

I stamped the image on the card base and again on a separate piece of card-stock. I took the seconded stamped image and colored it up with Copic Sketch makers. I die cut part of the image and lined it up on my card base using some foam adhesives to give it some dimension. 

I had some misc scraps of designer paper and cut them into strips to highlight the colors I colored the image with. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment on some kraft card-stock, trimmed and adhered to card with foam tape.

This second card I created using the newly released Evergreen Foliage stamp set. 

I created a stamped background by stamping the same image multiple times. Colored with Copic Sketch markers. Finishing up with stamping this pretty sentiment on designer paper and die cutting this sweet tag. I added some burlap string and tied a bow. The tag is adhered using foam tape to give it some dimension.  

Thanks for stopping by today.

Sneak Peek #4

Sneak Peek #4 is for the book lovers in us 🙂 This set is called Reading Buddies and this card features piles of books but can you guess what else is included in this set? It’s going to be a surprise but for those of you who are pretty much familiar with the stamp sets that I have designed before, you might have already made a correct guess as to what else is included!

Sneak Peek #2

Day 2 of our Sneak Peek Week and I hope that you have enjoyed what you are seeing so far!

Today’s sneak peek is called Evergreen Foliage. It features different types of leaves, branches and foliage that you can use separately or build up to create layers and dimensions. I love how this set can be use for a multitude of occasions from birthday wishes to even a get well soon card.

I might have also included images that you can color or paint in and also solid images that you can just stamp with your choice of ink. What do you think?

See you tomorrow for Sneak Peek #3.
