See why our new off set pin wheel cover die is flying off the shelves!
When we choose designs for our dies we always try to think of things that are fresh and new and can give you more creative bang for your buck. So when we opted to create an off set pin wheel cover die, we wanted to make it a little differently so YOU could make YOUR goodies a little differently. And the design for this awesome die was born!
First you have your off set pin wheel frame. This is the white portion of the card Julie is sharing with us today. You can use this frame alone over patterned paper or colored card stock, keep all the pieces intact just for the look of texture or use a tone on tone look for lots of shadows and depth.
Second, you have your pin wheel segments. These can be used to create a frameless pin wheel look on your card, replaced into the frame with or without the third element – getting to that next – over colored card stock for a dimensional look or even use the individual pieces to add sentiments to other projects.
Third, you have the little segment frames. Yes, we included this detail because it add SO much! And that’s why we are showing off this fabulous colorful card from Julie. Just look at how those black borders make all the colors pop!
Julie cut black card stock to get her borders and then cut scraps of different spring colored card stock for all her segments. She then cut three pieces of white card stock for the frame element and adhered these three pieces together with liquid glue for some extra thickness for a hint of dimension.
She adhered the frame to her card base and then glued her black borders inside the little windows with more liquid glue and then added her colored pieces. We are picturing this card with different shades of the same color for a monochromatic look, bright neon colors for summer, all those gorgeous jewel tones for fall and both traditional and non traditional hues for the holidays. As we hoped – endless creative opportunities!
For her sentiment, Julie cut white and black card stock with our Circle Stitch One Piece die for layerable pieces. She then used our You Script With Shadow die set to cut the shadow once from a scrap of white card stock and the script from scraps of black three times.
Julie stacked the black word die cuts together with liquid glue and than layered it over the white shadow. She stamped her little extra words from our new Shadow Words set and then arranged and adhered everything to her circles and popped those over the pin wheel center with some dimensional adhesive.
Watch for more fun projects made with this new off set pin wheel cover die – our Design Team loves it and apparently given what happened at the show last week, so do our fans. We are whipping through our re-stock and have more on the way but don’t wait – there are SO many fun ways to use this die and you don’t want to spend another day without it!
