M&M Gumball Card

This card was inspired by a presentation made at the Stampin' Up! Phoenix Regional seminar I attended back in January. I wanted to be able to share this really cool idea with my stamp club ladies, but knew it wouldn't be feasible doing it the exact same way as what was presented. She used the flower petals to go around the treat cup, and each one has to be stamped individually, taking a great deal of time per person to accomplish.

Anyway, using the gum-ball machine stamp works very well. And although the card still took a decent amount of time to make, it was a big hit. Here is the card from the inside, so you can see that when you turn the "wheel", the M&M's can fall out without tearing the card apart.

Supplies include:
Stamp set: Something Sweet, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Real Red, Brilliant Blue Classic inks
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sweet Treat Cups, 1-3/4" Circle punch, Gold Brad, 1/2" Real Red Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Paper Trimmer, Circle Scissor Plus, Stampin' Dimensionals
