Swing By and Maybe Win Something!

Hi there everyone!!  Today I have a sweet Humphrey's Corner card that I made to share with you. I used the stamp set - Swinging By which features Humphrey's little sister, Lottie. I love this stamp set!! It is just precious.

I stamped her out on Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock with my Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted to add a "tree" to the top, so I just drew on some greenery and colored them in with my markers.

After coloring the image, I cut it out in a simple rectangle and layered it on some of the papers I had chosen for my project. I grabbed one sheet of double sided paper and cut two strips. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch down one long side of each strip. Then I layered them on my base card.

I thought a pinwheel would be a fun addition to the card so I started with a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of double-sided paper.
Then I folded it in half from corner to corner.

Then opened it and folded it in half the opposite way. Crossing over the previously folded line.

Then I opened it up and marked the center where the two lines cross with a pencil mark (you don't have to mark it if you can just see where they cross).

Next I took my scissors and cut in from each corner almost to the center but not quite. Don't get too close or it will rip too easily.

Then, going in one direction, take each corner point and fold it (roll gently) toward the pencil mark. Adhere the corner point to the pencil mark area with a glue dot or a strong adhesive.

Go all the way around the square, folding in the corner points. Be sure to go in one direction.

This is what it should look like when you are finished. You can add a button or bling to the center if you want. After I made my pinwheel, I glued a button to the center and then added it to my card.

I stamped the sentiments out on Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock and layered them on complimentary papers. There were two sentiments, one for the outside of the card and one for the inside of the card.

I hope you were inspired to create something today.
