Yay for Banners


Banners are quite the paper crafting trend lately, and I was slow (as usual) to jump on the bandwagon. But once I bought the Banners Framelits Dies, I was a believer. The reason I broke down and bought this set of framelits was because I really wanted the Perfect Pennants stamp set and you can get both in a bundle for a discounted price (Perfect Pennants Clear-Mount Bundle, 134816, $41.50). I'm a sucker for the bundle & save tactic.

Stampin' Tips: 

  • Colors: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
  • Stamp Set: Perfect Pennants, Gorgeous Grunge
  • Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Retro Fresh Washi Tape, Banners Framelits Dies
  • Stamp several of the splatter stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink on Coastal Cabana card stock to create the background. 
  • Use the Retro Fresh Washi Tape to create a little more to the background. Using uneven lengths and making your edges tattered is ideal. 
  • Use washi tape to make the banner flags. Wrap a piece of washi tape around Baker's Twine and then use snips to cut an indent in the bottoms of the washi tape. If you would like to securely position your banner flags, use a glue dot to adhere them in place. 
Happy Stampin'
