Terri here with a Tuesday stamping project.
I fell in love with the idea of putting a pinwheel on a card and couldn't wait to give it a whirl so to speak!
I used several new SU products on this card---the designer series paper used for the pinwheel along with the birthday greeting stamp and coordinating framelit die are all from the new SU annual catalog. Email me if you would like a copy (FREE with a minimum $25 order).
Speaking of fun, I had a blast at the SU convention last week in Salt Lake City---check out my blog, www.stampinghare.blogspot.com, to see how much fun I had. Leave me a comment telling me about your favorite convention memory -- all convention stories welcome!
I'm already making plans to attend next year, the 25th anniversary of SU; I'm sure it will be an amazing celebration!! Join my SU team now and start planning to attend with me!
- Whisper White cardstock (CS) 8.5 x 11", folded in half; scrap piece for banner
- Daffodil Delight cs 4 x 5.25"
- Polka Dot Parade Designer Series paper (DSP) 3.25" x 3.25"
- 3/8" red glimmer brad
- 1/4" real red stitched grosgrain ribbon
- glue dots
- wooden skewer, cut to 3" (I got mine at the dollar store)
- perfect polka dots embossing folder
- Bitty Banner framelit die
- Itty Bitty Banners stamp set
- Real Red ink

- Emboss the Real Red cs using the polka dot folder; adhere to the Daffodil Delight cs.
- Adhere the 3" wooden skewer piece using glue dots to the card front. Slide a small piece of the red ribbon under the skewer and tie it.
- Lightly draw a pencil line on the backside of the DSP corner making an X. Cut each line toward the center, stopping about 3/4" from the center. Erase lines.
- With the DSP right side face up bring a corner of one cut section to the center and glue down; it doesn't matter whether it is the right or left corner piece just be consistent with the other pieces. Bring the next corner to the center and adhere; repeat until 4 corners are attached to the center.
- Pierce a hole in the center where the corners meet; insert a glimmer brad.
- Adhere the pinwheel to card front with a dimensional, covering the top part of the wooden skewer.
- Stamp the happy birthday greeting in Real red ink on the scrap piece of white cs; cut it out with the coordinating framelit die. Adhere over the wooden skewer using glue dots.
Hugs and Chirps!
