When I think of spring, I remember things that we used to do as kids and making pinwheels was one thing I always loved to do. I decided to make a pinwheel card. I used an embossing folder for the background and then cut out the quart jar using my silhouette, added a bow, the saying and the pinwheels. I hope you will give some pinwheels a try and have fun making them.


Have fun on the Blog Hop and I hope you pick up some inspiration along the way.

It's all about the color green

Today I am sharing a tag for our Design Team Reveal for Kreaxions/Just Imagine. Our Theme today is All Things Green.

I used Punch 909 to create the border at the bottom. I had so much fun making this tag and the punch just added that little bit of punch to it :)

My Challenge at Turtle Soup

I made a tag and used some texture paste on it. I used a stencil and the paste to create the background, then I went over it with a couple different colors of ink. I stamped the car and cut it out and then used a die to cut out the traffic sign. The keys are real and one I made rusted and the other I left plain.

In case you don't have Texture Paste, it is so easy to make and this is what I used on this tag.

Texture Paste:
1/2 cup baking soda
2 Tablespoons white school glue (I buy mine at the Dollar Store)
1-2 Tablespoon of white acrylic point.
Mix this up and add just the amount of water you need for a thick paste.

Put in an air tight container.

The beauty of this is if you don't want it white, just use the color of paint that you want.



Sketchaton is still going on and there is still plenty of time to join in so why not come and join us at Turtle Soup
