Dotty Pinwheel cu06386
Weekly-Favorite   CAS-Favorite
The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS325) on Splitcoast today asks us to use Wheels of some I chose a Pinwheel! I’ve had these cute little dies for a while but this is the first time I’ve used them. I also have a tutorial on how to make your own pinwheels if you don’t have dies. Pinwheel Tutorial. Dotty Pinwheel 06384
So I die cut 6 small & 6 large pinwheel arms out of a blue/white double sided paper. I used a dot border stamp to add the blue polka dots on the white side. A fading dot border die was used down the left side then I backed it with the same paper & stamped a greeting and added the pinwheel.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Jennifer, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS320)! Her gallery is full of inspiration and I picked her Celebrate the 4th to case. I kept the layout and pinwheel (love making those!), but I used different images, slightly different colors and used another image in place of 2 of the buttons.

The images are all from DRS Designs. I white embossed the polka dot background on the kraft card stock and stamped the teacher tools on another piece. I colored them w/ a combination of Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers before cutting them out. The pinwheel (tutorial here) was made w/ a 2.25 square of the brilliant blue c/s and I added the piercing above and below just like Jennifer’s card. I think piercing looks great and I don’t know why I usually forget to do it. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Congrats again, Jennifer, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

That’s a lot of sets for one card,  and I’m a little surprised there’s as much open area on my card as there is, lol! For the gingham background and pinwheel, I stamped the gingham using a lt pink pigment ink and let it dry. Meanwhile, I stamped the cupcake plate and two little cupcake plates, colored w/ Copics and fussy cut them. The recipe card die was used on piece of white linen paper and I sponged a little angel pink around the inside edge while the die was still in place. I did the same for the greeting tag then stamped both w/ black ink.

For the band across the bottom, I used a embossing border folder and inked it w/ the angel pink before I embossed it. Then I made two pinwheels…one is a 1.5 inch and the other is a 1.25 inch …out of some paper stamped w/ the gingham.  I put the smaller pinwheel on top of the larger one and put a brad thru the center. The brad was white, but I colored it w/ a pink Copic marker to match. I think pinwheels are a fun little alternative to bows. They are easy to make and for clarity, I made a little Pinwheel Tutorial if you’d like to see how I made them. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
