SRM Stickers - A Spinner Card!

BLOG SKIP... SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 29th!!!
Hey there... thank you for joining me for the blog skip this weekend. I will be out of town camping (I know, big shocker, right?) But won't you please leave me some love for when I get home? I hope that you are all having fun. If you came here from Yolanda's Place you're doing it right. Or, stop over at Stars & Stamps to start at the beginning! Here is my little Christmas SRM Sticker card.

For this card, I added a strip of "'tis the season" stickers under the track.

So for the blog skip i've decided to showcase these awesome SRM Stickers by demonstrating how to use them to make these sweet little spinner cards. I love spinner cards. Mostly because I am easily amused... but just watch how these stickers are PERFECT for making these cards! If you've never seen a spinner card in action, check out the video to see just what they do.



Happy Birthday, Operation Write Home! OWH has made such a huge impact on my life. I've met so many fun people both online and in real life by gathering people together to make cards for our heroes. I'll always be grateful for each and every one of you.

Please enjoy this video now, or save it for later to watch on your internet-enabled television... I don't reccomend the latter... I had no idea this was possible until my son pulled up my YouTube channel on our living room TV and watched in horror as his mother embarassed him to death with all of my card videos. :) No dancing in this one, son, just some gang signs!


Now then, hop on over to Paula's Blog to see what she has done with these SRM stickers. Don't forget to stop by Operation Write Home if you are new to OWH and you can also find out more about these awesome SRM Stickers here.

THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY!!!

This post brings back great memories. A spinner card was one of the first few cards I attempted when I started making OWH cards in 2010. I think I should try again now that I'm much better at making cards. My favorite thing about your spinners is how you added the "tis the season" sticker under the track in the top card. How fun!

Sandy Allnock said...

Darrrrrrrling!!!

Verna Angerhofer said...

That is a wonderful idea to use them as the spinners on those fun type of cards. I love your all your spinner cards.

Penny L. said...

first time I've seen the spinner cards! they look so fun, I'm going to give them a try sometime. Thanks for the "thickness test tip"! never heard of that before---but always wonder about that issue! PS: your video made me want to subscribe to your blog...so I'm a new blog follower of yours!

Marlene Diefendorf said...

RaNae Ellett said...

Wow I am so impressed with your Spinner Card. I Love new and unique ways to make cards and this one did it for me!!! It is the most unique card I have seen yet and I love that you made a tutorial to show us how easy it is to put together! These cards are absolutely amazing and I plan on making some right away! And last but not least, I had never been show the little trick to see if my card was too thick to be used by OWH, so your telling us how to determine if the card is too thick or not just put your entire Blog experience over the top for me. I LOVE your whole Blog experience with the spinner card and the way to check the card thickness. Very cool!!!

Love your cards and your video Nancy. I've posted your video on the SRM YouTube link on Pinterest. Great idea to use the Quick Cards on spinner cards!

eponinekc said...

Awesome tutorial! I love this spinner card and will definitely be CASEing it. I'll never be able to cut that slot by hand, so I guess I'm going to have to buy a new punch. :)

Donna Nuce said...

I had never seen a spinner card before. What fun! Your design was cute.

Borqna said...

I am very pleased! Many thanks for this tutorial! Oh, I'm so glad - I was looking for this thing for a long time! Beautiful postcards! Congratulations!

I'm must be easily amused too because I like spinner cards. The love card with the little heart sticker is my favorite. Very cute idea!

the 2 Pink Ladies said...

Thanks for the instructions on making a spinner card. I have never made one before, so this will help me tremendously. I will have to buy that punch for cutting out the track. I am not very good at cutting a straight line.
Love the card!

I haven't made a spinner card in quite a while, so thanks for reminding me what fun they can be! I already have the SU "Word Window" punch, so I think I'll dig into the bottom of my purse for a few pennies and I'm set to go!!

Laura P said...

If you have a helpful clerk at your local PO, you can ask them to order you the "Letter-size mail dimensional standards template", #D-1050251 Rev A" which has a cut out area for acceptable thickness and standard size of first class mail. Love the idea on using the trimmer!
