Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop DAY 4!

Today is the FOURTH Day of 
the Lil' Inker Designs (with ag designs)
Design Team BLOG HOP!

We are featuring for a second day the NEW Mini Pinwheel Die.

I hope you hopped over by way of Teresa's Blog.

So here is my project for day two of our mini pinwheel die blog hop.

In a past life I collected images I really liked from magazines for different found art projects. This is what I used to make the petals for our new mini pinwheel die. It was actually a magazine ad for a car that had a ton of flowers on it. I really loved the contrast of the oranges and blacks from the flowers. I choose a few petals where the green stems and leaves in the magazine showed. I used Laura's tutorial for the original Pinwheel Die and a black brad to make my first mini pinwheel! It's so cute! I just love the shapes it makes and the small size allows you to use it in a myriad of new and creative ways! The unintentional theme of my day at Laura's house was vertical cards made with kraft card stock from Papertrey Ink. I used markers to embellish my sentiment stamp THAT is a sneak preview of Fridays last reveal! I also used the magazine flowers with a another sneak peak item to accent my mini pin :D
I finished off my quick fall card with an orange bow. 
I just love the the mini pinwheel as a focal point!
