Little Fish...Big Wish!

Hello!
Happy Monday!

Patti J. here with my first Repeat Impressions Project of the Week!

My project this week is a fun little slider card!
So...grab that cup of coffee or tea, and join me for a fun tutorial!

Warning: Photo heavy :)

The stamps I'm using for this project are all Repeat Impressions Stamps:

Cut a piece of cardstock that measures 4.25" x 11".  Score in half at 5.5".  Set aside.

Cut another piece of cardstock to 4" x 5.25".  Find two graduated circle dies, and line them up together as shown.

This is what you will have after die cutting your circles.

Using inks and stamps of your choice, decorate the outside piece as desired.

Flip over, and add dimensional foam.  I use lots - many folks use much less! Your choice :)

Again, using stamps and inks of your choice, decorate the smaller circle. Flip it over and add foam pieces, as shown in the next photo.


Remove the paper from foam pieces, and adhere larger piece to card front. Be sure to place on card front in the right position, and no...don't ask me how I know that!  lol...
Stamp image of choice, color, and fussy cut, as shown below...

Take a button, penny, dime, whatever works best, and add a couple of foam pieces to one side only.

Lay your button or coin with the sticky side up, inside the large circle, toward the left edge.  Adhere the smaller circle in the center of the larger circle.  Place your 'spinning' image on top of the dimensional foam pieces. 

Voila!  You have a fish that will spin all the way around your circle.  Mine will even swim upside down!

 I know that you all have lots of great ideas for this technique!
When it's my turn again, we may do a side to side slider!
I hope that you'll give this technique a try, and if you do...
be sure to come back to the Repeat Impressions Blog, and 
leave your blog link in a comment!
That way, we can all check out your fun creations!

Happy Stamping,
Patti J.

Hey Patti!! I love this project! I have yet to make a movement card, but i think you have inspired me to try. Great tutorial! Thanks for visiting the Sweet Stamp Shop. It's been awhile yes? I had a hiatus there for a bit. I was kind of drowning in kids! But i have surfaced and am glad to be back with my crafty friends, blogging and making stuff. Good to see you again!
take care
