4th of July

I have been playing with my new Pinwheel Party stencils from The Greetery and have really wanted to make a red, white and blue card with them. The Paper Players Color Challenge #PP595 uses Real Red, Pacific Point and White this week. I happen to have those exact colors, so here is what I came up with for the challenge!

Products I used:

The Greetery: Pinwheel Party stencils

PinkFresh Studio: Braided circles dies

Stampin' Up!: Real Red, Pacific Point and Brilliant Blue Classic ink pads, Pacific Point card stock, Memorable Moments stamp set

A small circle die

Lawn Fawn: Oliver's Stitched ABC's dies

Red card base

Ink blending brushes

Wink of Stella Pen

Sequins, red and clear

Foam tape

I stenciled the pinwheels both lightly and more heavily with the three colors of ink only, then fussy cut the edges because I didn't buy the dies.... BUY THE DIES! I die cut the letters for JULY and die cut and stamped the "4th of" sentiment (three different stamps!). Next I arranged all the elements until I was happy with their placement, then adhered them with some being popped up on foam tape. I added sequins and Wink of Stella on the JULY and some of the pinwheels for a fun shimmer. Done!

The 4th will be here before we know it! Glad I got a card made!

See you soon,

Carol, I hadn't thought about this set for the 4th - but it's perfect! I love the profusion of pinwheels and that bold sentiment in the center. Fabulous card. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
