Gumball Machine

Here is my first card made using the Gumball Greetings Bundle. I wish that I had made some Valentines with it, the kids would have loved them!

Sorry for the reflection from my lights, they sort of look like UFO’s don’t they, hehehe. The Gumball covers for the shaker card are so easy to use, adhesive on both sides. I’ll have to admit that the little frosted bead gumballs were a bugger to work with, they roll EVERYWHERE! My camper table isn’t level and grr… what a struggle. I did try a new trick on my second card though that worked fairly well. I put the card on my chair cushion and pushed it down a bit in the center, then dumped the balls onto the card. Yay, they stayed put until I put the cover over them!

I love all of the fun details on the stamps and dies. The little flap even opens where the gumballs come out. The crank has a die cut and spins with a brad in it. There is even a slot for the coins and some little stamps to add to the flapper or coin slot.

One last tip for the day. Before taking any of the dies off of the backing, use a pen and outline them. This way they will always fit onto the backer. If you use magnet sheets use a chalk pen and do this on the magnet sheet. I love puzzles but not when I’m in a hurry putting my dies away. This also helps to make you stop and search for a missing die right away. I’m hoping that I find my smallest Stitched Rectangle Die when I get home, lol! I didn’t have those outlined.
