Inspire Ink Bloghop – Funfair/Carnival – Ferris Wheel Card



Oh what a fun theme for May. Happy memories of summer evenings at a funfair – in Scotland we call a funfair ‘the shows’. My friends and I would go to the shows with a few shillings and have a wonderful evening. The music, the smell of burnt sugar and hot dogs were all part of the experience and even today those sounds and smells evoke happy memories. Oh to be young again – apparently I’m on the brink of my second childhood!

I love the challenge of different themes set by other people and having to decide how I will interpret the idea. In my card I have used 2 Stamp Sets that I have had for a while but not used recently and combined them with the new in colours and a beautiful pearlised doily from the Share What You Love suite.

Stamp sets: Lift me Up and Thoughful Banners

The card base is in Basic Black

A4 card cut in half longways at 10.5cm and folded in half to give a tent fold card

The stamped and die cut elements are stuck directly onto the card base.

cutting the doily: This picture should help – cut away the coloured parts.

  1. Could you Please help out another fellow Demo from USA? Could you just draw a template from your doily that shows us how to cut them to get 5 spokes? I’ve lost count on how many times I tried. Just maybe count your ruffles or whatever? I really want to make this card for all 32 of my grand children. They would love this card. I would also love to subscribe to your blog page, but couldn’t find where to do it? Again, Thank you for sharing! I tried to use the Painted Glass bundle for the spoke, but it’s too thin.
