I have also always wanted to try a spinner card. Thanks again to Dawn and the great "how to Videos" she posts on her website I have made my first one and am very pleased with the outcome. Let me know what you think.
The 3 different pictures are to show you that the humming bird moves. Now that I have this down I must make some more.
I had seen a pop up card one time on Split Coast Stampers but could not find the instructions. Well after a bit of time on the Net CASE'ing ideas I found someone with instructions, now I did modify the measurements some what (mine is about 1/2" bigger all around) Here is what I have made. Now this may be ruining the surprise but Aprils Stamp Club is Mothers day theme and lets just say that we will be making this type of card.
OK so here is my pop up card:
Folded to fit in a regular envelope
Popped open for display
I used Close to Choco, Very Vanilla and Not Quite Navy SU card stock, SU Chocolate Chip 5/8 Grosgrain Ribbon and the SU Echoes of Kindness (hostess level 2) Stamp set. Other embellishments are paper flowers and a large brown brad.
I would like to thank Diane aka cookiestamper , as she posted on her blog the dimensions and instructions. Also there is a wonderful Demo on You Tube by Dawn aka Dawn5377 and her website for other great Ideas is Here .
Hope you enjoy this,

Friday at noon Dorothy and I loaded into her van and off we set on out adventure to London On. Just so you know I don't do well as a passenger, but Dorothy was great (its the other drivers I have issues with...lol) We arrived in London around 4 and checked in to our hotel and did some walking around.
Friday night we went to a demonstrator night which was hosted by Heather, a demonstrator from London and her wonderful team. What an amazing bunch of ladies. There were 60 demonstrators there from all over and Heather had swaps planned and an amazing project. I will be sharing this one with my stamp clubs as soon as I order all the supplies. Thanks again Heather and the Simply Stars Ladies, this was one of my fav moments of the whole weekend.
Now, Saturday was the BIG event! and I mean big. As I have not been with Stampin' Up! for very long and have never attended anything company related I was not sure what to expect. This was big! and they tell me the leadership and convention events are 10x bigger and more exciting.
Stampin' Up! had make and take projects ready for us that were amazing, great wow demonstrations from local demonstrators and amazing projects from SU!. There were so many displays and more swaps. I took over 200 pictures, I would have taken more but my batteries died, for the second time. Note to self, bring more batteries next time. What good is a camera that can a 1000 pictures if you bring cheap batteries that can only take 100 :( lesson learned.
Well I am still on a Stampin' high shall we say, and I am off to create. I will post back later in the month and just want to remind everyone that there are only 16 days left in Sale-a-bration,
