May SOTM Blog Hop - Pinwheel

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring May's SOTM, which is "Pinwheel", a set of 10 stamps. If you have come here from Maureen's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants at Helen's Blog.

This month we have approximately 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
A picture of the stamp set is shown here: 

I chose to create two cards using the Surf's Up Paper Pack. This is not a paper pack that I use very often, especially considering that it is snowing (in April) the day that I made these cards... However, I love the turquoise and blue combination and wanted to play that up. 

The first card is 5x 7 in size and I chose to create little pinwheel flags using some of the images from the stamp set. I also used the Seam Binding in its original state as my ribbon of choice. A little bit of Baker's Twine helps to dress it up.

My second card is a standard size card and I chose to use the star image for this one. Both are cutable on the Cricut although the smaller star needs to be cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge, not the Artiste Cartridge. I mounted the smaller stars with foam tape and added some bling for good measure. 
 I hope you enjoyed my projects. 

The supplies I used are listed below: 

Paper: Surf's Up Paper Pack, White Daisy Cardstock, Crystal Blue Cardstock
Stamps: Pinwheel
Inks: Lagoon, Crystal Blue, Sunset
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Art Philosophy Cartridge, Baker's Twine - Paradise Assortment, Colour Ready Seam Binding, White Flower Brads (ret.), Clear Sparkles, Foam Tape, Corner Rounder, Buttons - Red Assortment

  1. I think the pinwheel looks good in these colors.
