Karen Nofziger created the cute card above using the Joset Designs Sliders & Spinners die set. Karen used the new ModaScrap Manly Man Designer Papers for all the various layers on her card.

Lucky Ladybug Spinner Card by Elena Anderson

Elena Anderson created this colorful lucky ladybug card using the Joset Designs Sliders & Spinners die set. If you look closely you can see the channel the spinner goes in near the larger of the ladybugs on the left side of the card. For the background of her card Elena used the Krista Schneider Spring Blooms Clear Stamp set. She also used the Ladybugs die set and Stitched Rectangles die set both from Els van de Burgt Studio. The sentiment is from the Joset Designs General Sentiments Clear Stamp set. Elena used Soft Finish Cardstock in White, Rich Black and Ladybug Red to create her card.

Smile Spinner Card by Melanie Smith

Melanie Smith created the colorful card above and it will definitely make you smile!

Zoo Babies Slider card by Frances Byrne

Finally, Frances Byrne shares two cards she created – one that slides and one that spins using the Joset Designs Sliders & Spinners die set. For her first card Frances used the Krista Schneider Zoo Babies Clear Stamp set with coordinating dies to create a Hidden Slider Card. The slider portion of the card is hidden underneath the panel at the bottom of the card. Pull the white tab on the right hand side of the card to reveal a message. Frances also used the ModaScrap Romantic Corners; the Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles from Els van de Burgt Studio and the Pop it Ups Baby Clear Stamp set. Frances used the ModaScrap My Little Girl Paper Pack to create her card.

Honey Bear Spinner card by Frances Byrne

For her second card Frances created a Spinner Card using the Joset Designs Sliders & Spinners die set. Frances chose the Krista Schneider Honey Bear Clear Stamp set with coordinating dies to create her card. Shes used White Soft Finish Cardstock for the base of her card sponging the clouds using the Behind the Scenes Earth & Sky Stencil. The layers were created using the Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles from Els van de Burgt Studio. To create the grass Frances used the CountryScapes Clouds & Grass die set to cut paper from the new ModaScrap Cucino with Love Paper Pack.

  3. These are adorable! I would most likely make a card with a sliding golf ball for my husband. In fact, I ordered the die yesterday. 😀

  4. I own the slider set but have not opened it. Thanks for all the wonderful examples. Excited to give it a try.

  27. I love the idea of an interactive card! I would use the dancing butterflies!

I think it would be fun to have Rocky the Crab spin. He always makes me smile and seeing him spinning around would definitely be a hoot.

  39. What a great idea, I think the ladybug is so cute and would be great on flowers.
