All About Layering 2: Big World

Today's card features Altenew's Big World Stamp and Die Bundle. I wanted to showcase this stamp set and I decided to do a spinner card. I wanted to show a different perspective for this set. I decided to use a lot of colors to showcase this set. I wanted to show someone special to me that they are my world and without him, my world has no color.
I thought a spinner card could showcase these feelings.
I stamped the world 2 times. Once in grays and the second time in color. The ink pads I used were: Parrot, Maple Yellow, and Ruby Red for the colorful image. Then I used Silver Stone, Industrial Diamond, and Pure Graphite for the gray image. The Phrase is stamped in Jet Black. I stamped the word World with Autumn, Blaze, Hydrangea, Tide Blue, Just Green, and Maple Yellow. 
I used Whip Cream card stock and circle dies from FSJ. My glitter paper is from My Favorite Things.
I used some silver thread from my stash.
I placed the thread between the 2 world images and then taped it down between the card stock layers. 
To make the world spin, you just twist the thread severalties and close the card. When the recipient opens the card the world spins.
Below is the video showing this:

I really enjoyed taking this class and making this card.

All About Layering

I am working on my certification with Altenew. I was accepted into their Educator Certification Program at the beginning of the month.This is an exciting challenge for me. I have been stamping for almost 20 years and it's always a learning experience.

My first class is All About Layering 1. This class showed me how to layer their various stamp sets used in the class. This was a great class to get my feet wet and try some of their stamp sets.The class made me feel comfortable with the stamps.

For my creation,Golden Garden Stamp & Die Bundle.
I used the smaller and medium bloom in the set to create my background. My ink colors are: Jet Black, Persian Blue, Caribbean Sky, and Starlight. My card stock is from FSJ.I used Whip Cream and Denim Days.

I stamped one bloom and die cut it out for focal point. My sentiment is foiled using the Glimmer Foil Machine from Spellbinders. The foil plate is from the monthly subscription, it's called Everyday Sentiments. I used the Gold Foil to foil it and then die cut it with the die include in the kit.

The sentiment and single bloom where popped up with foam squares. My background layer was also popped up to give some dimension.

I used my pearls from my stash to complete my card.

Happy Kreating !!!
