Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Approaching Perfection Fidget Spinner card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my project, I chose to use the Approaching Perfection birthday stamp set.  You can earn this level one Sale-A-Bration item by placing a $50 order of current Stampin’ Up! product.  I made a similar fidget spinner card in 2017.  You can see that old post HERE.

My card base is Pacific Point card stock 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next I took a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock and used the classic label punch to cut a slit in the layer for the fidget spinner to spin in. I used the Approaching Perfection stamp set (and the Stamparatus) to stamp the candles along the bottom of the Basic White layer in Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight ink (applied to the stamp using the Stampin’ Write Markers). The balloons (also from Approaching Perfection) were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored using the Stampin’ Write Markers.

For the fidget spinner itself, I downloaded a clip art file and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo. (You could take an actual fidget spinner and trace it and cut it out of Pacific Point card stock). What makes object on the card spin is pennies. I have one on either side of the Basic White layer and they are attached in the middle with a mini stampin’ dimensional.

Diecutting smaller circles using the Stampin' Up! Shark Dies with Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Next, I needed circles: 1″, 3/4″ and 1/2″.  Last time I used punches, but those have since retired. A quick flip through the catalog and I found the Shark Dies, it had circles, and they were the right size! I used the waves from the Shark Dies and Basic Black card stock to diecut the 1″ circles and adhered them with liquid glue to the three points on the spinner. Next I die cut out 3 3/4″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered those over the top of the 1″ circles with a stampin’ dimensional. Finally, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and adhered it to the middle with liquid glue.

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS.  I stamped the Happy Birthday (from the Approaching Perfection stamp set) in the center in Pacific Point.  In the lower right corner, I stamped another set of candles, inked using the brush tip of the Stampin’ Write Markers
