July Stamp Set of the Month
The July stamp set of the month is the Shooting Star set. I normally don't reveal the stamp set of the month this early, but these cards were too cute!!! Let me tell you a little more about this stamp set and the framelits that coordinate with them. This stamp set and framelits work perfectly together to make moving, spinning cards. The framelits not only cut out all the stamped images perfectly, but they also create 'tracks' for those images to spin or slide along. The bee in the first card spins around the hive! Isn't that adorable. The framelits makes making these sliding cards so effortless!!!
The airplane in the card slides back and forth along his track. So how do they slide and spin?! It's easy and all you need is a penny or a small washer. First you simply cut the sharp corners off of a dimensional. It doesn't need to be perfectly round but eliminating the sharp corners really helps. Stick one side of the dimensional on the penny, the other side of the dimensional on the back of your stamped image. Then you simple slide the penny into the track, so the stamped image is face up and the weight of the penny (or washer) will spin and move your image along the track. AHHH!! It's so much fun! I promise, if you make one you'll make 100, they're that much fun!!!
Now of course you don't have to use the images for a sliding card. They work beautifully on their own too! When you order this stamp set in July (you can also add on the framelits too!) You'll get the supplies and directions on how to make these 3 cards. For more information please contact me.
