Pinwheel Sizzlits S Die Cards

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida.  It's a time for demonstrators to come together and share their ideas and learn more about growing their business.  I love getting together with other demonstrators since it fuels my excitement and motivation for a wonderful company, Stampin' Up!.  If you're interested in learning more about the opportunity to become a demonstrator, please contact any one of us.

During Stampin' Up! events, we get the opportunity to swap cards with each other.  You can make as few or as many cards as you would like.  It's always fun to swap your card with others and see all the new ideas other demonstrators have.  It was so much fun and after swapping my pinwheel cards with a few demonstrators, I kept running into some of the same demonstrators that started calling me "the pinwheel lady."  It always made me laugh and made it easier to make friends along the way.

Here are two of the cards I created for swaps at Leadership:

Island Indigo & Pool Party Pinwheel Card

Tangerine Tango & Whisper White Pinwheel Card

Both used the Pinwheel Sizzlits S die and the "Wishes Your Way" stamp set.

Tips for using the Pinwheel Sizzlits S die:
  • it's easiest to cut only one layer of DSP or card stock at a time; this allows you to see the creases to punch the pinwheels out of the paper easier and to see the tiny holes to poke the brads through
  • push the brads through the middle of the pinwheel and then poke the brads through each tiny hole of the pinwheels and onto the same brad
  • attach pinwheel straight to the card through an already paper punched hole or attach to the card with dimensionals
