TGIF Challenge #274 Entry: Pinwheel Card

Here on DannysCards.com, we've talked about the love of my favorite paper scrap card: The Pinwheel Card. This easy to make card was perfect for TGIF Card Challenge #274.

To me, the great marker of a good Paper Scraps card is that it doesn't look like Paper Scraps. As you can see from their blog, the ideas here are bursting with creativity, and their cards too, don't look like scraps, but seamless integration. If you don't know how to make a Pinwheel card, check out my tutorial here.

 So here's my final product:

The Happy Day with the flower was designed using my Colop E-Mark Create printer, which might be the best use of scraps in recent memory. 


What I love is how the adhesive foam and the button really give this card the extra dimension it needs. I'm super happy with the results. Check back later this week as I'm working on another card contest entry using Anna Griffin's Fantastic Flip Die Cut.

In other news, my Rainbow Butterfly card was chosen as a weekly winner from CAS. Be sure to check my card out!

Anna Griffin Empress Machine Review

For the past few months, I've really given my Anna Griffin Empress Machine a workout. For those not in the know, The Empress is a high powered non-crank emboss and die cutting machine. It's akin to devices such as the Cuttlebug, The Big Shot, or the Gemini. I Have a Cricut / Cameo / Silhouette - Why This? The short answer is, you can create texture in your cards. While the aforementioned devices are no doubt powerful and create designs that the Empress can only dream about, there's no doubt that emboss machines give textures and creates intricacy that cutting machines cannot compete with. My most complimented cards are not the ones with the most layers or even the most elegant, rather it's the cards with texture. Cricut and other Cutting Machines just lack that  ability to create the"feel" of a higher quality card. Pros of the Empress I absolutely adore my Empress. For those with arthritis or other mobility issues, a device like the Empress is a

Cricut Foil Transfer Kit Review

The grand reveal of Cricut's new foil system was exactly what people were looking for. When the We R Memory Keepers Foil quill system was released, it was seen as revolutionary. Foiling cards with lettering and mandalas quickly made even the most generic card look vibrant. But the system was also clunky. It took time to warm up, had three different pressure sensitive pens and the pressure applied was questionable leaving a less than desirable effect. For me, the We R Memories Foil Quill was nothing but a waste of money as the idea never quite translated to my cards correctly. Great in theory, but like other We R Memory  Keepers items, it misses the mark. Cricut promised us a new foil system without the need of heat and with new pressure technology. It sounds promising.  In practice, the release of the Foil Transfer Kit was a bit of a disaster. Obtaining the product seemed next to impossible except for the few who did get it. Cricut continues to have fulfillment issues with many peo

Geometric Christmas Cards

After a card show I have one of two feelings. One: I feel reinvigorated and want to craft as much as humanly possible. Or two: I'm exhausted and I need some R & R to get my creative flow back in check. After my last show I fell firmly into the latter category.  Thankfully, November is here, and with that comes a host of Christmas and holiday inspiration. Inspiration struck yesterday thanks to Sketch Saturday's wonderful sketch #686 .  Here's the sketch in question: A fun sketch no doubt. I just purchased the Starry Night Recollections paper from Michaels, and so using that and this sketch, here were my two creations. Here's my submission piece: As you can see, the gold foiling really catches the light. It's quite a stunner. My second piece I was also really proud of: I'm all about that blue and gold Christmas, so I was super thrilled with how these came out.  Hopefully, my inspiration keeps coming. Thankfully, I have a number of holiday cards I have to make,
