PINWHEEL TAGS TEAM SWAPS!

I have been on a roll with the Pinwheels lately using the Swirly Bird set.  I needed to make some swaps for our team meeting last night so I decided to make up some quick tags with them.  WELL….. That was the plan.  These tags took hours.  Nothing was going right yesterday.  I was getting ink everywhere, I was cutting things wrong!!! Do you have days like that?  Anyway, I got them done.

I made a few variations of them and a number of each. For the colours on the Pinwheels they are from left: Wild Wasabi and Emerald Envy; Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach; Blushing Bride and Peekaboo Peach; Sweet Sugarplum and Elegant Eggplant.  I used some scraps of the Playful Palette DSP stack too.  (I am on a mission to use all of my DSP!).

The white card measures 13cm x 5cm (5 1/8″ x 2″) but you can make them any size you like.  These will fit on a card front to make a full card.  I rounded the tops with the Corner Punch.

The sentiments are from ‘Thoughtful Banners’.  I punched them out using the Classic Label Punch.  It’s cool that you can punch them different ways to create different effects. I coloured the Rhinestones with a black sharpie.

I got there in the end.  I hope you like them.  🙂

SWIRLY BIRD PINWHEELS!

I have been having fun making samples with the Swirly Bird stamps and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits ready for my Swirly Bird Class tomorrow.  I just finished this card today and had to show you now.  I really liked how it turned out. I saw an idea for a type of pinwheel using it somewhere, I think on a group I am on??  So I thought I would have a play and see what I could come up with.  I wasn’t sure how it would work at first.  Here is the end result.

Pinwheel Swirly Bird

What do you think?  Pretty funky?

It’s a simple card in itself.  The colours for the pinwheels are from the top right: Emerald Envy and Wild Wasabi; Dapper Denim and Tempting Turquoise; Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo and Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango. I only realised as I got to the last one that I was using the new Incolors. 🙂  The “spots” from the stamp set and stamped in Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is from ‘Guy Greetings’.  I went through all my stamp sets and thought this font really suited.

The Rhinestones were coloured with a Black Sharpie to add to the centres.  The white card was then adhered to a Basic Black mat and the base card is Tangerine Tango.

These pinwheels were really fun to do and being a clear set you can see through the block to line up each stamp.  I stamped the shape running across lengthways first and then inked the stamp again and flipped it to run across the other direction.  Then inked the other colour and stamped  to line up the long edge with the shorter edge already stamped if that makes sense?? I think I will have to try some more cards with these pinwheels!

Go and make some funky pinwheels for yourself.  Of course, you need the Swirly Bird stamp set to do this.  If you haven’t already got it and the Swirly Scribbles  Thinlits you better buy it.  This is such a fun and versatile set.  Get it as a Bundle and save 10%.
