I was asked by a friend to make a Funky Engagement card. Mmmm?? My first thought was Lemon Lime Twist. That is a funky colour. What else though??
As I thought about it I though the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits or the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits might work. I did a little searching on Pinterest and found an idea there. I changed a few things around and … Well I think the result was funky enough. My friend was very pleased with it anyway so that is what counts.
I cut the wavy lines from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits from the the White card and used both the waves and the outside white pieces. Behind it I adhered a piece of the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP. Some of the cool Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon was wrapped around the white card before adhering it to the Lemon Lime Twist card mat and then to the Dapper Denim card base.
The heart is cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in Lemon Lime Twist and the “congrats” from Dapper Denim. I couldn’t help myself. I had to add a Rhinestone. 🙂
So you can make a funky engagement.

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.
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%.
If you are in Australia you can order it through me if you don’t already have a Demonstrator. Head to my Store HERE and place your order or contact me directly.
Thanks for visiting me today.
I have some more of the fun from my Catalogue Launch for you. If you missed out on the first part then head back to the last post I did. Today I want to share with you some of the stamping fun we had.
The table all set up ready to go. I was pretty excited with the Pom Pom Flowers I found that was a fairly close match to some of the new Incolors.
This was a sample of some of the new products and some cards. I had other new products in the Product Playground that I showed in the last post.
I had some Swirly Bird card samples to share. I have a class this coming Saturday just with the Swirly Bird stamps and the Scribbles Thinlits. That should be a lot of fun.
This was the first Make and Take using the new Flourish Thinlits. I love the delicateness of these dies. I found they cut surprisingly easy even with just the regular platform. I used the new ‘Playful Palette’ DSP stack too. The sentiment is from the new set ‘Best Birds’.
The other Make and Take was using the new Dapper Denim Incolor. I have used the ‘Thoughful Banners’ stamp set. These banners are so easy to punch with the Duet Banner Punch. I stamped a background on the base card with the Timeless Textures stamp set. The colours of the stripes were from the top – Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, Marina Mist and Soft Sky. I cut a scallop square mat for the white stamped card piece with the new Layering Square Framelits. It just gives a subtle peek of the silver Foil. This card was inspired by a card I saw on a Facebook group I am on.
So lots of fun was had by all my lovely ladies who came. I appreciate each and every one of them. If you are local make sure you come along to my next launch or class to enjoy the fun.
Thanks for stopping by,
