lil' inker designs blog hop day 3

This is my second post for today - please scroll down to see my There She Goes projects.

Have you seen the fabulous creations using Lil' Inker Designs new releases? If not, get yourself over to Laura's blog for the start of the new release hops. Each day this week various members of the Design Team are participating in a new release blog hop to show you some sneaks of the new products. Today I'm hoping you have joined me from Laura's  blog and it's the turn of the mini pinwheel die to shine in the spotlight! Here's the graphic.


If you've seen some of the fun had with the pinwheel die then you will know that this mini version is sure to be a big hit! For my project today I dressed up a little silver gift card holder for Christmas.
  

Dies - Lil' Inker Designs mini pinwheel, Papertrey Ink seed packet; Vellum - Papertrey Ink; Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder; Divine twine; Snowflake punch; Brad; Doily

I die cut 7 spokes of the pinwheel out of vellum and then popped them through an embossing folder. A punched and glittered snowflake and crystal brad finished off this winter beauty. I loosely attached a semicircle of doily and wrapped some red twine around before popping the pinwheel on top.


I love the translucency of using vellum on this project. The mixture of colours and textures gives a lovely wintery feeling and there's nothing like having a Christmas project done!

Now please hop on to Sarah's blog for more wheelie inspiration! However, if you get lost on the way, here's a list of all the places to visit today.

Debby - that's me, you're here now!

Before you go please leave a little comment here and on any of the other blogs you visit today - there are $10 shopping sprees to be had! You have until Sunday 25th September to complete the hop and winners will be announced on the Lil' Inker Shop Blog on Monday 26th September.
