I lined up the stamps in the right places and used my anti-static powers in those areas before stamping with VersaMark ink and embossing with white embossing powder.
Next is the fun part. I sprayed water into the colors I planned on using which were two different blues and two golds. I used my watercolor brush to add the color to the cardstock in a marbling type of look. Using different colors allows it to give it a celestial look. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process.
Lining up the cut background to a the 4" x 5.25" layer of black cardstock, I adhered the hallow cut circle. Next, I cut a strip of 100 lbs scrap cardstock into a 3.5" x 0.75" and used a large brad to connect it in the middle. Make sure it's not tight and you're still able to spin the white piece around.
Using the 3m foam tape only on the outside of the exterior cut piece. The key here is to make sure there's still room for the white piece to spin while under this. I cut the strips even thinner on the outside of where the spinner will go.
Adhere that onto the black cardstock base and use a glue dot to stick the center "Happy Birthday piece to the brad in the center. Then use the 3D Foam squares on the white pieces you can see, making sure that you can still spin it without the foam squares rubbing the edges. Oops! I forgot to add white paint splatter for stars, so I used a white gel pen to make stars. 🤦🏽♀️ Next, you can stick your planets on.
When adding this cute little panda, Only add the foam squares to the bottom of him so that he doesn't block the rotating planets. The foam squares add more dimension and keep it from blocking the moving parts.
