The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the February 2022 Safari Celebration kit.
It has been quite a while since I have been able to participate in this blog hop. I am happy to be back and what a fun kit to play with. The die cut animals are so fun and whimsical. When I saw the animals I knew I wanted to play with that elephant on roller skates.
Cute right? Well this is a rolling penny card which allows the elephant to spin and do tricky roller skating tricks.
So fun! Here's a quick rundown of how to make a rolling penny card. Cut one of the Fresh Freesia card bases in half. Randomly stamp the leaf in Fresh Freesia ink. Use a Stitched Rectangle die (1/2" x 2-1/2") and cut the opening on the Fresh Freesia piece. Apply a strip of Foam Adhesive to the sections above and below the rectangle opening. Be sure to leave space around the rectangle opening. You could also use Stampin' Dimensionals. Sandwich a Stampin' Dimensional between 2 pennies. Attach the elephant to a penny. I used a Stampin' Dimensional. Slide in one of the pennies to the inside of the Stitched Rectangle. The elephant will now slide and spin across the rectangle track. Attach the Fresh Freesia piece to a Basic White layer and then on to the Fresh Freesia card base.
I colored and fussy cut a cupcake and attached it to the elephant. The 2 sentiments were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut using the same die that created the track. Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what the talented Dana Sullivan has created for you.
