Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- Pinwheel - May

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for May 2013- featuring Pinwheel


Pinwheel, a set of 10, is a fun, fun stamp set!   If you have come here from Mary's Blog you're on the right path.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete hop list at Helen's Blog!

I recently learned how to make this double pocket card, and have since made several :)
I love that you can fit a gift card, tag, or decorative element in the pockets!




For this card, I used the Claire Papers.  I love how neutral this particular sheet is, it will go with anything!  I cut one of the large pinwheels (stamped in Cranberry with Crystal blue middle) and one of the medium sized pinwheels (stamped in Crystal Blue with Sunset middle) with Artiste.  I then stamped two more of the smaller pinwheels (one in Honey and one in Sky Blue).  To make them two-toned, I cut and paper pieced them together.  I added some old Fanfare brads to the center and Colonial White Ric Rac as the stems of the pinwheels.  The largest one, is in the big pocket :)  On the inside I added the sentiment "You make my world go round"

  


I also showed this card (on the right) the other day, made with Dream Pop & a sentiment from Pinwheel!  



The May Stamp of the Month is available the 1st-31st.  With any $50 purchase, this set is yours for $5.  Head over to my website to start shopping :  http://roxybonds.ctmh.com/
