Witch's Boot Spinner!

I learned the spinner card technique last year in a class given by my Stampin' Up mentor, Liz Thayer.  I love these little tidibits of knowledge that we learn each time we do a card class with Liz.  Thanks, Liz!

I decided to use this spinner technique on one of my Halloween cards this year by using the witch's boot in Stampin' Up's Bootiful Occasin stamp set.  I colored my witch's boot using Copic markers, plus I added a band of gold glimmer paper to my shoe to add some glitz.  For my spinner card, I added a bit more embellishing when attaching my spinner item by using a double set of layered scalloped circle punches under my shoe.  I used pennies to make my spinner base, though I have seen nickels used as well.  I am pretty happy with my little polka dot witch's shoe, after all every outfit is all about the shoes, right!

And the finished inside created to coordinate with the card front pretties:
