The star of this project is Kelly Book by Stamp Anniething and she’s surrounded by a bunch of her animal friends featuring stamps from Purple Onion Designs. These images were stamped with a light brown or gray ink for a softer no-lines look and then colored with Copic markers. I’ve received some requests on how to color her eyes so I’ll work on that this season. What do you like about this card and what would you like to see me do next? Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

I was inspired by the Loads of Fun washing machine set and thought it would be funny to have a spinning load of socks – all of them mismatched, of course. So when I spotted the Reveal Wheel, I knew that was the combination I needed. The trick was to combine the shaker card idea with the wheel. What I thought was going to be easy ended up taking forever. But it worked and it’s so fun to play with.

To make this a shaker card, I used the spinning wheel die to cut the top and bottom layers from white card stock. Then a third time from thin double-stick foam. The top cardstock layer was cut with a circle die that I also used on the washing machine. This allowed me to assemble a wheel part just like any other shaker. However, don’t forget to add the brad into the bottom layer before sealing it up.
Once the shaker wheel was figured out, I put the rest of the card together with foam tape and arranged my colored images to top. I made sure I used lots of socks. This was also my the debut of my first Purple Onion Designs stamp – that turtle reading was the perfect little critter to wait for the laundry to finish.
