Pin It


One More Pinwheel

Happy New Year's Eve! Thought I would share this card before I head out for a night of serious partying. Ha! Ha! I don't think that's happened since I was 21! As DH says, we always enjoy a very "exclusive" party...we're the only 2 invited!

This is the first card I tried making the star punch pinwheel, but I decided it was maybe too simple for Stamp Club, so I made this box a few posts below. It's a case from a Convention demo, but they used Groovy Guava & Blush Blossom cardstock and Groovy Guava Prints DSP, which I didn't have, so I switched to Not Quite Navy & Soft Sky cardstock and Old Olive Prints DSP. I think most of the Stamp Club members liked this pinwheel, but a few thought it was too tedious and too much trouble. They did seem to feel this other pinwheel was easier and had some great ideas on how to use it. I liked one of their suggestions to have a batch made and ready to go for package adornments, etc.

Okay, enjoy your New Year's Eve and be safe if you go out!

Recipe Stamps: All Holidays. Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Soft Sky, Kraft, and Old Olive DSP. Ink: Not Quite Navy. Accessories: Not Quite Navy Brad, Dimensionals, and Star Punch.

I think this is a great idea! I may have to CASE it for my next club meeting since I'm getting both of the star punches today. I think the colors are so pretty.

Okay ... I'm going to have to beg, eh? These pinwheels are too cool! Just too cool!

How much are your lessons, chicka?!
