Soccer Ball Spinner Card


Hey all!

Today I have a really cute Soccer Ball Spinner card to share with you all! Made this birthday card a couple of weeks ago for a super cool 15 year old, who loves everything soccer! 


The only file I used for this card was the soccer ball that comes from SVG Cuts Sports Lovers SVG Collection.


This card is super simple to make, so here is how I made mine...
  1. Cut out two soccer balls and glue them back to back with a piece of embroidery string or twine running down the centre in between the layers. Set this to the side.
  2. Next using circle dies, cut out a large enough circle out of the front panel of the base card as well as the top layer of your card. 
  3. Attach the soccer ball cut out using the stings to the top and bottom of the circle cut out, make sure to pull the strings taught. Use strong adhesive.
  4. Emboss the top layer of the card if you like, and glue that layer to the top of the card covering up the string ends and sandwiching them between the layers. 
  5. I cut out a (red) circle border to finish the opening around the soccer ball using two different sized circle dies. 
  6. Embellish the rest of the card as you like!
SUPER easy!


The stamp inside is a combination of stamps I used from Snarky Stamps.

Hope you have enjoyed my Soccer Ball Spinner Card, maybe even inspired to make one of your own!

Have a great weekend!

Using Vinyl to Create Watercolor Cards + How to Video


Recently I have seen watercolor cards popping up everywhere ! So I had to jump on board and give them a try!


Before I even got started I watched tons of you tube videos but I have to say I fell in love with Kristina Werner Design videos. What a talented artist! I even went out and purchased some masking fluid to create something like I saw from one of her tutorials. But then one night, I had a light bulb moment and thought to myself why not try making a card using vinyl rather than the masking fluid. With the fluid you need to be really steady with your hand and have great calligraphy skills. But, with vinyl all you need is a nice font and a electronic cutting machine. The designs with the Silhouette are endless!

So then came the experiment and I am pleased to say I am truly happy with the results. I have to admit I had so much fun working with watercolors that I am positive this will be the first of many projects using them!

Take a look as I flub my way through my first actual (speaking) video tutorial. I thought it would be cool for you to see as I saw my experiment come to life! Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think :)


Here is a look at all 3 cards I made created using this same technique. Mini works of art!


Stamps I used come from Snarky Stamps found here.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and unique way of personalizing watercolor cards using vinyl :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Freakin' Awesome Snarky Stamps 3X3 Cards


Hi Guys!

Today I want to share some really fun quick 3x3 cards I made using a couple of Snarky Stamp Sets created exclusively for Paper Issues. I have had these for a while now and have been dying to try them out! Check out the Snarky Stamps sets below...  the stuff you can come up with is endless! 



Anyways, I made these 5 piece sets for some colleagues of mine at work. I'm sure they will get a kick out of them as they are not your typical greeting card quotes!

Hoping that no one takes offense to them as they are meant for laughs!


Here are a few close ups of each card.




Here is a pic of the back of the card. I have had this Justrite wood block stamp for years and am just starting to use it now... I'm such a craft hoarder! Yup, freakin' rights, LOL! ;)


Hope this has inspired you to be real and create your own Snarky Cards, just remember they aren't meant for everyone, and hope you liked them anyways ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
