Create with Connie and Mary

We have a FUN sketch for you to try this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  I loved the idea of the little trio of "items" to use on the front.  You will see from the Design Team entries, that each of us did something totally different!  How fun!  Make sure to check out their cards over on Create with Connie and Mary!

 

 

And here is my card, using the stamp set I got on the Alaska Cruise called Sweets for the Sweet!  A darling set!  The very first thing I thought of when I saw this sketch was PINWHEELS!

 

 

I started with a base of Poppy Parade cardstock and I layered on Daffodil Delight.  I ran some Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder.  I cut a piece of Just Eat Cake Designer Paper…one of the new DSP packages in the new catalog…and layered it on front.  Then I added some Real Red Taffeta Ribbon in a ruffle pattern across the bottom.

 

I cut three pinwheels in the colors of Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade and stamped on Whisper White.  I also cut out three of the handles stamped in Early Espresso.  I added a Gold Mini Brad to the center of each and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I stamped Just for Fun in Early Espresso on Daffodil Delight and used the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch to punch it out.

 

My stamp club will be doing this card tonight!  Hope they like it!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team over on Create with Connie and Mary!

This stamp set is on my wish list for tomorrow! The ribbon really makes the pinwheels stand out!
