Movin' with Simple Stems!

Good morning bloggers and welcome to Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration.  Today our design team members are sharing projects with moving parts.  I chose to use products from the new Sale-a-Bration brochure and the new Mini Occasions catalog. 

With my moving part, I chose to use one of the cute flowers from the "Simple Stems" stamp set and the DSP is "Sweet Sorbet", its one of the awesome items you can earn for FREE with a $50 purchase.  I stamped it twice and layered it with a foam dot.  I have never made a card with a moving part before, so I was excited to see this as one of my choices to participate with this month.  I used the penny spinner technique.  Picture instructions are listed below, just in case you are like me and you have never done this fun technique before.  I have it set, so that as you turn the card it will move from side to side.
step 1.  gather supplies of two pennies, punched shape that you want to move and foam dots.
step 2.  Place a foam dot in between the two pennies and place another on the outside.

step 3.  place the outside foam dot on the back side of the shape (in this case the flower)
step 4.  this is what it looks like all stuck together and placed inside the area you want it to slide on.  I used the word window punch on my card to create the area that my flower will slide across on.  Once penny rests on the outside and the other penny rests on the inside.  This is what holds it in place without falling off the card.

Thanks for joining me today.  Don't forget to leave some "love" and head over to SSInkspiraiton to check out the other creations from our design team members.  I hope you get INKspired to create!!
