Hello Banner

Hello, Diana here to share with you a card inspired by this week's inspiration picture from the Classy Cards 'n Such challenge. So many things to choose from in this sweet quilt!

The banners immediately drew me in and quilts always bring to mind texture. I had quilted a while back and my favorite (and least favorite at the same time because it was so costly) was sending it off to have the top, batting, and bottom layer stitched together. So of course I had to use my stitched die from My Favorite Things Blueprint 13.

I also cut out a fish tail banner from the same set with white card stock that I ran through with an embossing folder from my stash. I made the center focal point a shaker element using PoppyStamps Cheviot Butterfly with small Joy! foam pads and 1/8 Scor-tape to adhere everything together really well. I added a layered banner and wrote by hand my hello on the banners.

Finally, I added some pink striped washi tape and purple rhinestones. The butterflies were some stickers I had from years ago.

Palm Trees and Banners

It is Shirley posting today and I am sharing a card I made for the Be Inspired challenge.  I like banners so when I saw the inspiration picture, I knew I was going to have banners on my card.  

I started with a blue card base and added a layer of white card stock.  I tied a piece of blue and white twine across my card.  I added little bows at each end of the twine. 

Have you ever had scraps of paper you really loved and could not bear to toss them in the trash?   This card will show you how to use those special little pieces of paper.   The paper I used on my card is scraps from Simple Stories called Vintage Bliss.    I used punches to punch out the banners and the palm trees.  I used the Memory Box Precious Hearts die to cut my hearts and I snipped off the bows so I could use the hearts only.  I attached all of the pieces I just mentioned to the twine going across my card.  I used buttons, a heart, a safety pin and a clothes pen from my stash.  I added silver rhinestones to the hearts and the palm trees.

I used the Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments stamp set and blue ink to stamp the sentiment on the bottom of my card and that completes my card.

Thank you for coming by our blog and I hope you will join us for the challenge.  I look forward to seeing your cards.
