Make it Monday, Retro Sketches #51, and a CASE

Today, I have three cards.  The first is for this week's Retro Sketches RS#51

My next card is for this week's Make it Monday MIM#104, where Ashley shows us how to make a pinwheel out of a square of paper.  I had never done it this way, since I have not one, but two, pinwheel dies.  Ashley's way is actually much quicker.

My last card is just for fun.  Earlier this week, I saw two cards over at the Waltzingmouse Blog Party that inspired me--Renee's card because of the layout, and Lynn's card because of the amazing shimmery embossing she did.  Seeing her card reminded me that I have shimmery embossing powder that I had forgotten about.

I used Versamark and SU Brilliant Blue, and then embossed with Stampendous Kaleidoscope powder.  Here is a side views to see the rainbow shimmer better.

  1. Your first card is beautiful with the banner dies and the embossed background love the stamps. Love your pinwheel and how you used the pinking shears to cut it with, great idea! Stamping for fun is just the best way to stamp. Love your take on Renee’s card!

  2. All three of your cards are, as usual, fabulous Joyce. Your RS is very fun with those pretty flowers, the MIM pinwheel sits inside the frame perfectly and I love those patterns you used and finally I think it is great that you created a card just because.

  3. I love that flower on the first one! That is really awesome :) The pinwheel looks so fun in the yellow polaroid frame, and I love the split circle in deep blue with the adorable sentiment for the last one :)

  4. Love the balance of colour in your retro sketches card and use of ip over the stamping. Really like your pinwheel with zig zag edging. The shimmer on your last card is great and the message strip stands out in the middle of the pattern.Super cards.
