Companion Challenge #1 Flip Flop, Spin & Pop

Hey There friends,

Welcome to my very first Companion Challenge. I am soo excited to start this new venture.
I am SOOO EXITED about this! Every other Wednesday I will highlight one of my awesome friends, as my companion and I will also make a challenge for a projects so this gives you an opportunity to show off your creativity.

This week the challenge is Called Flip- Flop, Spin & pop, Create an interactive card that does something a normal card doesn't.

The project has to be an an original card made specifically for this challenge! I will use Random.org to draw the winner on Monday 7/19/10

The prize is a Martha Stewart Score Board. Generously donated by my Awesome Sponsor Stuff4scrapbooking.

My First Crafting Companion is my awesome friend Momo. She created a card that spins. I love the sentiment she used, it's too perfect.
"I am honored to be a part of Cristina's first Crafting Companions Challenge. The challenge was "Flip Flop Spin Pop" and well of  course my mind went crazy and I remembered this spinning card I learned about a year ago. I saw a tutorial on Youtube but for the life of me I can't remember who's it was. I hope you enjoy it and if you would like to see a video tutorial hop on over to my blog"
- Momo

My project: I was totally inspired by the newest release of Lettering Delights Images Called Seven Seas Graphic Set. Though this diecuts comes from Life is a Beach. 

I created this Whirly Card  for my challenge project, and this is the first one I've ever made. The submarine spins and comes out of the water when you tip it. Such a fun card.

I used some liquid embossing clear glass finish to give the water and the submarine a wet shiny look!

It won't let me link --- I get Error on page message

Laura Cline said...

Hi there! I hope you get to read this before the challenge ends. When I try to link my project, I get a little message on the bottom left corner of my browser window that reads, "Error on Page". I can input my URL, name, and email, but when I click "Next Step", nothing happens except the error message. I've used Linky before and have had no problems. Can someone tell me if I need to do something differently?


Cristina Garcia said...

Laura. I will post it for you.

Cristina Garcia said...

I'm gonna post it for you :)

Cristina Garcia said...

For everyone who was curious. I used the Link system in my firefox browser and had no trouble sometimes internet explorer is funky with the inlinkz script

Laura Cline said...

Thanks so much for posting my project! :)
