Spin-Bot


This is my first attempt at creating a spinner card...I sure hope you like it! The robot was heat embossed using a VersaMark stamp pad and SU silver embossing powder. After he had a little "cool down" I was able to cut him out and then adhere him to two coins using dimensional adhesives (I used dimes as this particular robot was a just a bit too skinny to use pennies). I loosely followed a tutorial on spinner cards created by Cambria Turnbow that can be found here. I found spinner cards to be somewhat less complicated to make than I had anticipated, so if you have been intimidated by the thought of creating one...go for it! If I can do it, anyone can. The most difficult thing about the entire process was trimming around that cute little robot. Thank goodness for my SU paper snips or I might have gone all "nuts and bolts" while cutting him out! :)




Thanks for swinging by!
