Cartwheel Santa!

Yep, Christmas, Halloween, Christmas, Halloween. That's how we roll around here. Speaking of rolling... today I made the BEST. CARD. EVER.

When I saw this cute Get Your Santa On stamp set (and that star border punch! Dying!) at convention, I knew I was buying that! So, I usually just CASE cards, (and for those of you who aren't in the card world, that means Copy and Share with Everyone-- although I say copy and steal everything!) but all the cards pretty much looked the same for this cute set. So, I thought Santa needed something FUN. I mean, it's SANTA. So I came up with this... (you HAVE to watch the video!)

I also want you to notice the words stamped behind Ol' St. Nick there. One of the cool things about the photopolymer stamps is that you can bend them and stick them on the acrylic blocks. So, I cut the words above Santa's head off and stretched them into a line, et voilĂ !



You can't even imagine how hard it was to get a video of Santa in action without his little helpers jumping in. This was the best take:

I could do a fancy tutorial for you, but all you have to do is search "spinner cards" and you'll find something. Let's just say, all you need are 2 pennies, 2 dimensionals sticking them together through the card, and then don't forget to pop the card up with 2 dimensionals in each corner, plus on the sides. (It makes it spin better that way.) Here are the other supplies I used (please note I didn't have the blendabilities, which would have looked even BETTER! So get those with the memento ink instead of just the regals markers and stazon, which are also fun. haha!) Also, when you sign up for Paper Pumpkin you get the D block! And if you do that before the 10th you get 50% off for TWO MONTHS! (Check out the previous post for more info, or just click on the top right corner of the blog!):
