Monday, Feb. 16 & Pinwheels!

I have wanted to make pinwheel embellishments for a long time, and finally got around to it from a challenge from PTI. I love how it turned out, and how easy it is to use PTI products on any given project, and how it's opened my little world of crafting! First I stamped my square that I used for the pinwheel with a background mesh stamp, gathered it together with a little mulberry flower and pearl. I slightly curved up the edges of the pinwheel to give a little more dimension. The background paper is cut from a Simple Stories strip, then layered with some cardstock. I used the 'Think Big Favorites #19' stamp set and backed it with a popped scallop. The top is tied with some twine. I think it would be super cute tied to a hostess gift!

My second card, I stamped on a Spellbinders tag, die cut it twice and popped it up after stamping a round sentiment from an older Narratives stamp set (that I still love). Lots of layered papers in the background along with some ribbon.

The finished projects:


  1. You made some great projects Suzanne. Love the different card shape too.

  2. A beautifully embellished pinwheel.

  3. Love the flower center on your pinwheel!

  4. The flower centre for the pinwheel is so unique!
