The Timeless Twine team and Lil' Inker Designs team are showcasing all week long products from both companies in a cross promotion. It has been super fun to play with the products and I love the dies! The pinwheel is super easy to put together and they cut out so nice. I like this cute little notebook paper too with the stitching...so adorable!!
I decided to not put a stick on my pinwheel just to make it a cute little accent piece. I made some twine curly to pop underneath the pinwheel picking colors from the paper I used in the pinwheel. I made a 1" button that said "Miss U" on it since my card is just a little note to someone. I used some corrugated paper I had in my stash.
My second card I used a beach themed stamp set which I LOVE!! This crab is just too cute. So I wanted to make a port hole type front to my card. I used some pewter brads I had to put in the circle I cut out. I don't own copics and honestly I am not someone who likes to color so this was a bit of a challenge but hey I am always up for a challenge. I used my Derwent Inktense pencils and a watercolor brush and stamped the image on watercolor paper I have. One of these days I would like to buy some copics but lordy I buy enough stuff for crafting and half of it isn't used. I have a fortune in this room. Seriously do you ever think about how much money you spend to make a card that if you are like me never makes it out of this room. I do make birthday cards for the grandkids so the thousands of dollars I spend is worth 2 cards a year right! ha ha
