Snowflake Spinner Card Video

Hello, Crafters.

A crafting friend asked if I could make a video showing how to make a spinner card, so the spinner part can't be seen until the card has been  opened, so it's a complete surprise!

I'm happy to accept challenges, and I have really enjoyed creating today's card.

My first card was using the snowman and the reindeer fron the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies, but I thought the video would take too long with all the colouring! 

Even without all the colouring the video is one hour and seven minutes long, so I think there will  be a lot of fast forward buttons getting a workout today!

On the video I promised to put the details of the snowman card I showed, on my blog today (6th December 2017), so everyone can choose which card they'd like to make:-

1). Snowman: was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock (CS), using Basic Black Archival Ink and coloured using the following Marker Pens:-

a). Hat: Early Espresso, and hat band: Soft Suede
b). Holly: Wild Wasabi for the leaves and Real Red for the berries

c). Robin: Crumb Cake and Real Red for his breast

d). Carrot nose: Pumpkin Pie

e). Scarf and mittens: Real Red and Pool Party

f). Rabbit: Smokey Slate

g). Snow body: I painted over the white areas of the snowman's body with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.

2). Reindeer: were stamped on Crumb Cake CS using Basic Black Archival Ink and coloured in using the following Marker Pens:-

Reindeer facing front:

a). Antlers, tail, hooves, body spots, and ear shadows: Crumb Cake

b). Ribbon: Pool Party

c). Bell: Wink of Stella Gold Glitter Pen

Reindeer facing back:

a). Antlers, tail, hooves, and body spots: Soft Suede 

b). Ribbon: Real Red

3). Holly inside the card: stamps were from Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set and coloured with Wild Wasabi and Real Red Ink 

4). Whisper White oval inside card: was die cut using die no. 3 of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies

5). Christmas Tree: is from the Ready for Christmas Stamp Set, and was stamped in Wild Wasabi Ink on Whisper White CS, then die cut using the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies.

I painted the Basic Rhinestones using the Dark Old Olive and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend Pens. 

The gold star if from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

6). Christmas Blessings Sentiment: is from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, although it looks more like Real Red! Hmmm!!

7). Card Base and DSP: the card base is Cherry Cobbler CS, with layers of Whisper White CS, and top layers of the reindeer design from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper (DSP).

If I've missed anything please let me know.

This morning I'm off to the hairdressers, but I'd rather be at home crafting.

Does anybody else feel like this? LOL! 

Until tomorrow, happy crafting!



  1. Beautiful Card! What I would love to know is how you made your own inch ruler guide on the cutting guide. I have wanted to do this for ages, but never got around to it. Thank you Denise

    1. Hi, Denise. I'm glad you like this project. I cut the strip of a sheet of the Grid Paper - it really works a charm! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  2. Just so gorgeous, Jan! And what a lot of work! However, when you get such stunning results as this, it's all worth it, I'm sue! Your video is expertly presented, as usual ... thank you!

    1. Hi, Geraldine. Yes, this one was a lot of work, and I'd only make this design for very special people! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
