CREATE A PINWHEEL TOWER CARD + VIDEO!

For our Friday Flicks today I show you how to create a Pinwheel Tower Card.

You might have seen these around. I have been fascinated with them and wanted to have a go. They are so easy – and they look so cool. You will want to try one yourself.

I have used the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle.

Here are each of the other panels.

It can easily fold flat. This particular size is too large for a standard envelope but you can create your own OR cut the panels 2cm (3/4″) thinner and it should work.

I have the video below for you or it is now on Youtube to view. I give the measurements for them in Metric and Imperial but don’t stress I have the measurements below.

PINWHEEL TOWER CARD MEASUREMENTS

There are a number of versions around. This one was based on Karen’s card -> HERE.

Tower Base – 17cm x 14.8cm 7″ x 6″ Scored at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm (1″, 2″, 3″, 4″)

Panels – 3 @ 7cm x 14.8cm 3″ x 6″

Designer Series Paper Pieces – 4 @ 14.4cm x 6.6cm 5 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

– 4 @ 14.4cm x 4.1cm 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

Hope you get to make one yourself.

The Tidings of Christmas paper is one that is reduced at the moment in the Paper Sale. This finishes on Monday. So not long to save 15% on it.

You can find it in my store -> HERE.

Have a great day,

cards, Challenges, Stampin' Up!

INSPIRE.CREATE.CHALLENGE #095 WITH SWEET STOCKINGS PAPER!

I have new products …That’s always exciting! 🙂

To warm up to them I looked up a sketch to play along with. The Inspire.Create.Challenge #095 email arrived in my inbox so thought I would have a go. So I made 2 cards with it.

This is the sketch. You can find the details on their blog -> HERE.

These are the cards I created. Both used the upcoming Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper which you will be able to order from August 3rd. It’s such cute paper!

That cat doesn’t look too impressed but then how many cats would be impressed with deer antlers on it’s head. 🙂

The sentiment and santa hat is from the stamp set Sweet Little Stockings. The santa hat was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

This card below I flipped the sketch. The sentiment and the leaf diecut is from the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle which is available now in the Annual catalogue. The shiny ribbon is the Gold Shimmer Ribbon which will be in the Mini Catalogue.

Simple cards but then what more do you need with this sketch. Let the paper make a statement.

Speaking of the new Mini Catalogue.

If you are in Australia and would love a paper copy sent to you then let me know in a comment or email. They are heading out in the mail now.

Have a great week,

Jenny
