Pinwheel Spin

Hi peeps! Happy Easter! I've been thinking about the tall and skinny TCP Tuesday sketch all week long and finally had a little time to myself to play yesterday. So I pulled out the cute What a Blast set and Pinwheels CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas and did a little stamping just for the sheer joy of stamping's sake!

I just HAD to use that big old pinwheel die (isn't it gorgeous?), so a little tweakage to the original sketch happened, but you can still see the inspiration there, I think. The pinwheel is cut from Stella & Rose Mable Paper, then pinned together with a vintage brad, sponged a little with vintage photo ink and then layered over a taffeta bow.  PJ and his pinwheel from What a Blast is stamped onto a Labels 10 diecut, then I paper pieced the pinwheel and colored everything else with Copic markers, adding a few stripes to the pinwheel pole.  And he just had to tilt a little since his heart is spinning!  The You Make My Heart Spin sentiment is stamped directly on the bottom panel of patterned paper, and then I finished off with some stamped and cutout clouds from the same set.  My card base uses the Long Scallop Rectangles Nestabilities and I accented each scallop with some liquid pearls.

That's all from me today!  I hope you have a fabulous Easter and thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Julee- this is stunning! I love that pinwheel! And you did a fabulous job with the sketch girlfriend. Now how you gonna send that out? The one question I always ask myself after testing my creativity. UGH..... you don't want to ruin it.

  3. This is so cool! I love pinwheels. I didn't know anyone had them except Lil' Inker Designs. Love the colors you used and the way you worked the sketch. Very cool card indeed.
