Happy Friday and Happy Spring! I *LOVE* this time of year... things start to turn green again and so many flowers are in bloom. Sadly, we're not quite there yet here in Central Virginia... but I am hopeful that it will be here soon enough! In the meantime, I can create my own spring flowers... which just happens to be the Fabulous Friday theme over on the Sisters in Stamping blog today. For my project I designed a Spring banner to display in my office. I love the Party Pennants Bigz L die for the Big Shot - it made cutting out the banner pieces super easy and fast (you can layer 3-4 pieces and cut at one time!). I used the naturals white cardstock as my neutral base layer and added colors from the 2013-2015 In Color family. Please see below for individual pennant photos...
The backgrounds were created using the stencils from the Build-a-Banner Simply Created Kit and Dots & Stripes decorative masks. I sponged on the color using an ink pad and stampin' sponges and added the letters to the smaller pennant pieces using the Larger than Life photopolymer stamp set - super easy to do since you can see through the stamps. My little flower embellishments were made similarly to the ones I shared in this tutorial here. The only additional card stock color I used was so saffron for the centers of the flowers... all other colors are from the In Color family - I love that they coordinate so beautifully!! Finally, I strung them all together using Baked Brown Sugar baker's twine and added two bows using the Bow Builder punch.
I hope you try making a banner or two for yourself... they're really fun and so easy to create using the Party Pennants Bigz L die for the Big Shot! If you want a larger banner, the Build-a-Banner Simply Created Kit is awesome and comes with stencils for decorating them as well as all letters of the alphabet. You even get 18 blank canvas pennants! Either way, Stampin' Up! has great products to help you create wonderful banners!!
