Fan-tastic!

Hi all! A while back, Gina K held a secret swap. The cool thing was, all you needed to do was just swap one card - that was it. You had no idea who would be giving you a card... until it arrived in the mail! Well, this was the card I made for my secret swapper. It was using Rupa Shevde's set Many Happy Returns from Gina K. Designs. I think the set is just too fun!

To make the card, I used the Abstract set from Spellbinders, and then I paper pieced the fan so that my "fan blades" were silver. I cut the fan out and then added a silver hot fix nail head in the center. Layer it on some metallic patterned paper and a piece of paper that I ran through my Wizard with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, add a tag, some ribbon and you are done! The tag is actually just a 1-1/4" circle punch that I punched a smaller hole at the top. Nothing to it!

This next week brings lots of excitement over here at my place! What's coming up? Only three new sets being released by Flourishes, three new colors of Shimmerz Paints perfect for fall, a new Friday Stamp Simply Challenge and who could forget - every 15th of the month you'll find a brand new Y.ou K.now Y.ou R.ock challenge to get those creative juices flowing! So, stick around for a busy and fun week! Sneak peaks for Flourishes start tomorrow!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
