The Greetery: Pinwheel Party Time!

Hi friends. I am back with a couple more cards, using products from The Greetery’s new Confetti Collection. I am a bit obsessed with the Pinwheel Party Stencils, and couldn’t resist working with them again.

I started off by making the pinwheels. I die cut several colors of card stock with the three pinwheel dies in the Pinwheel Party Die Collection. The die cuts line up perfectly with the single pinwheel stencils. I found it easiest to put the die cut back into it’s negative, and tape the matching stencil over it. I blended coordinating Distress Oxide inks with finger daubers over the stencil.

When it came to decorating, I kept the card fronts similar. I stamped the star cluster from Pinwheel Party Stamp Set in a rainbow circle, and added a single stamped star in random spots. I trimmed the panels with the Crimped Frame Die.

The Let’s Party! die is from Pinwheel Party Die Collection. I die-cut the words twice, glued them together, and attached them to the coordinating shadow. I attached it to the card with thin foam squares.

The second card got a heat-embossed sentiment. I picked a sentiment from Pinwheel Party to white heat-emboss onto black card stock. I used a Sentiment Suite Basics die to die-cut the sentiment.

I added matching die-cut circles to the middle of each pinwheel. I used the small pinwheel circle die in the die collection to die-cut colored card stock. Once I attached the pinwheels to their cards, I finished them off with faux pearls.

Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope I have helped with Pinwheel Party inspiration!

  1. Thanks for the tip to put the die cut wheels back into negative space to ink. I’ll have to try that. I love the ink colors you’ve used. Can you share what the colors are.

    1. Hi Diane! Since I used light colored card stock (whatever was in my stash). I picked a darker Distress Oxide ink for my stenciled color: Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed.

  2. I absolutely love this die and stencil, I am just so upset we cannot get them here in the UK, and it costs so much for customs and delivery, but you did a great job. Amazing!

  3. Oh these are so fun Angelica. Great colors and I love the crimped frames, one of my favorites! Great job.
