"Interactive Elements" Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where we are featuring "Interactive Elements" while incorporating Close To My Heart products. Participants can interpret the theme however they choose so it will be fun to see what they have to share with all of us. 

If you are coming from Haley's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post. 

For my card creation, I decided to create a Spinner Card (and maybe for the first time - oops). I have possessed this Spinner Thin Cut for quite some time but had not used it, yet. Honestly, I was a little intimidated by it and I should not have been. Directions were included (and are also provided as a download on my website) and that is what I used. Be sure you have a brad to use as it is what allows the spinner to be functional.  

I enjoyed incorporating these coffee cup images - and had to include the facial stamps this time - from one of my favorite stamp sets. I used Distress Oxide Inks to discolor the background as well as to color the holder on the left. Some paper-piecing was done on the holder on the right. 

I could not resist using this adorable stamp set, again, "Desserts a la Whirl". As you can see, it includes fabulous sentiments that could be used in the window. 

If you want to see a Spinner Card in action, and how to create one, watch this brief video

I hope my card inspires you to give the Spinner Card I try! Enjoy seeing what else the participants have to share with you. I don't doubt you will enjoy all of it! 

Now, head on over to Michelle's Blog to see what she has to share with you and enjoy the rest of July!
