Having some FUN with Pinwheels

I had so much fun playing with the limited availability Curvy Christmas Set and the Classic Christmas DSP -

Curvy Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set - $21.00 - #155364
Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper - $11.50 - #155969
On my Facebook Live Friday, November 27 I made this adorable little pinwheel - it would be perfect to hang on your tree as an ornament.  Here is what you will need to make it: For base you need two pieces of 3.5”x3.5” cardstock in your color choice. A piece of Whisper white or Very Vanilla 3.25” x 3.25”. 4 pieces each of two different DSP designs 1.5”x1.5”. Layers for your sentiment in coordinating colors – largest 1 ¾”x 1 ¾”; middle 1 ½” x 1 ½” and smallest for sentiment 1 ¼” x 1 ¼”. I used Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler as my colors. 10” of ribbon for the hanger. Set: Curvy Christmas Gems: Colored pearls Inks: Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Adhesives: Seal and dimensionals.


I also made another in the same colors just reversing some of the patterns and elements.   The pearls were colored with Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spuce blends.


And here's a picture of the back - so as you can see it would also be a great tag on a gift or to hang around a bottle of wine as a hostess gift.

SF 2020 - November - Happy Holidays - Blog Hop


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration!
 It is a Happy Holidays kind of month!  
 So I wanted to just have a little fun this month.  Was working on split shape cards and had some Jolly Ranchers and the Trimming the Town DSP sitting on my desk when I noticed similar colors.  So I went with it - grabbed my Merry Moose set and coordinating punch and came up with this fun ensemble.
 The card uses that split shape technique with our stitched circles in Misty Moonlight, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Whisper White.   The colors were just bright and kind of crazy - so I thought, why not add a green moose - right!?!
And I liked it!  So then I had to do something with those matching Jolly Rancher candies, and our 3x3" acetate boxes did the trick.  Filled up that little box and put a strip of Whisper White around it vertically to form a band.
Then attached some layers of matching colors to secure it.
Added some circles and a strip of DSP with a Holiday sentiment; and of course another green moose!  Who could resist that - but I'm hoping those circles don't look too much like a target!  I like my moose alive.
I hope you liked my Holiday projects and that maybe they brought a smile to your face.

Shadow Box to Note Cards - think outside the box !

So on my Facebook Live today I shared a quick tip on how to use components from large projects to make some adorable little note cards.  You can view the video - HERE!

I started with this beautiful Shadow Box FALL sampler that we made at a recent class - It uses all current products from the Annual Catalog and the Fall Mini Catalog.

After the class I ended up with a ton of extra pieces that I had cut just in case - so instead of just sticking them in a box - I decided to make cards with them.  I pulled out a package of our Vanilla Note cards and envelopes; and scraps from my Gilded Autumn DSP and here is what I came up with - 

 The one above is my take on my November First Monday Challenge - you can see full details on what that is and how to enter - HERE!

How great are those - I now have a stack of cards ready to go out to friends and family for Thanksgiving - and I absolutely love them.  So I encourage you to look at different components you have started and are probably laying in a box in your craft room; and make them into something beautiful today!!!  Take care and I'll see you back here soon ! ~Maureen
