Jolly Friends Spinner Card!

Hi Stamping Friends,

I held a retreat at the Sawridge Inn this weekend and had so much fun with everyone!!! The cost was $200.00 which includes 3 days of cropping, 2 lunches, a $50.00 goodie bag, 3 make and takes using product from the goodie bag, games with prizes Friday night, Saturday night bingo and gifts throughout the weekend.  There were also optional classes you could take.  Plus I bring my whole stamp room and lend out all my supplies. Email me at kchin2@ for the next date!

This was one of the cards I designed at the weekend. We'll be making it at my teen's card class on Nov 19.  I still have openings if your teen loves to stamp.

This cute card uses the super cute Jolly Friends stamp set and matching Jolly Hat Builder punch. You can buy these as a bundle and save 10% #143511.

I used 4" x 5-1/4" Candy Cane lane designer series paper and glued it to 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White card stock. The track was cut using the Sliding Star Framelits.

The elf was stamped with black archival ink and punched out with a circle punch. The elf was attached to two pennies separated by a stampin dimensional. This allows the elf head to spin.

Notice the cute little mini jingle bell #142002 on the hat?
