New Game Spinner Hands and Take a Spin Stamp Set

Hi guys! I have a fun new card for you today and I hope you love it as much as I do. Two new products from the Occasions Mini catalog have me very excited. They were merely cute when I saw them but now that I ordered them and got to play with them, I can promise that there will be MANY new cards using these products coming up here. Wanna see the fun? Check it out!
And here is an angled shot so you can see a little more detail...
How fun is this? The new Take a Spin set includes 4 different "faces." Three of them can be punched with the new 2 1/2" Circle Punch and the other is a square which is easily trimmed with a paper trimmer if desired. The Spinner Hands (sold separately) come with 12 each of the spinner hand, washer, and brad to attach the hand. I substituted a colored (Certainly Celery from the Subtles collection) brad on my card here but it comes with brads that are the same color as the hands and washers. I paper pieced the panels on the spinner face to get the multicolored image but you could also use markers to color the stamp itself.

The materials I used on this card are a rather eclectic collection so I will list them today. If you have any further questions about the list or how I used a specific item, please let me know.

Stamps: Take A Spin, Something to Celebrate (sentiment)

Ink: Pear Pizazz, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red

Papers: Pawsitively Prints DSP (plaid), Celebrations DSP (number print), Pear Pizzaz CS, Tempting Turquoise CS, Whisper White CS

Accessories: Spinner Hands, 1/4" Whisper White Grosgrain ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Brads from the Subtles collection (Certainly Celery)

I played with this set quite a bit over the weekend so I have another spinner card to show you soon. I also have several other new products that arrived recently so check back for lots of exciting SU ideas. Hope to see you soon!
