Spinning Around!

Happy Friday!  The cards being shared today are the final two spinner cards that are being made in the August card classes.  The first class was on Wednesday evening and everyone had fun making the cards.  I expect the class this week will have fun too!


Whenever I decided to have a class on spinner cards, I knew one of the cards had to incorporate a pinwheel.  The pinwheel was made using the retired Pinwheel Sizzlit.  The pinwheel spins wonderfully and it would be great to use on a child's birthday card.  I opted to prepare more of an adult version with the "grunge" look and one of my favorite color combinations: Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.

The last of the spinner cards is my favorite and was cased from Linda Gutierrez at www.StampingYearRound.com.  The technique of using the brayer to ink the honeycomb embossing folder creates the appearance of a real honeycomb. Crystal Effects was used on the bee's wings to create a glossy appearance.
