Yesterday I participated in the Thin Cuts Blog Hop with fellow CTMH consultants. I created an inside spinner card for my project. Once I had it complete I knew that I would be asked how to recreate it, and that I should of made a video to show the process.
So I set to work getting everything together so that I could create a video to share the process with you all.
We will be featuring Thin Cuts from the current Seasonal Expressions catalogs, and there are lots of variety, so I'm sure you will love the creations shared on the hop. If you have come here from Melinda's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.

For this Blog Hop I decided to have some fun and try my hand at an inside spinner card. I will do a process video to share with you on how to create this fun card.
I used Bluebird cardstock for the base, and the inside of the card is White Daisy Cardstock. The stamps used on this card is January SOTM, I Heart Us Cardmaking stamp set, and Butterfly Friend ship stamp and thin cut set. The other Thin cut used was the large circle Thin cut. I used Bluebird, Carolina, Sweetleaf, Mint, Sage, Raspberry, Canary, Pixie, Charcoal and Black ink to create this card.
Here is a quick video to show how this card works.

For my project I wanted to keep it simple, so I used the new watercolor pencils, and I really love how smoothly they color images, and the blend together seamlessly. To blend the colors I used the clear Shimmer Brush because I wanted that shimmer on the card. The image is a bit larger than an A2 card, so I decided to create a frame for the image using the new Rectangle Thin Cuts. The final touches were adding some clear gems. The frame is cut from the pink stripe paper in the Something Fierce collection.
Here is a close up to see the shimmer on the banner and the flowers. You can also see the tones of color in the banner and on the large pink flowers.
