Extended Banner Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Today I thought it would be fun to show you how I like to make extended banners using Lawn Fawn stamps. I'll get right to it and show you my completed card. Then we'll look at the simple steps so you can make your own. ;)
The concept for this card started with a pile of sticky notes. Once I made sure I had a concept that worked and a sentiment that fit I started stamping on cardstock. :) So here it is, super simple...

First I stamped the banner I selected from Bannerific 3 times.

Then I trimmed each banner to be the start, middle and end to my extended banner. Next I stamped the sentiment from Lucky Stars, added a little interest to the middle using Interlocking Backdrops and glued the banner together! What do you think? You could also mask and make it one big piece but I decided to go the easy route today. :)

Hope you are inspired to give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday everybody! I didn't think I'd be entering this week's Hero Arts challenge but I was reading through my favorite blogs yesterday and was totally inspired by Jennifer Holmes . Love when that happens! Within a few hours I had this card put together. I had fun adding a few extra details. I curled the beak around a pencil to make it curve. Then put two layers of dimensional tape under the middle to support the shape. I also made accordion feet. These can fold flat for mailing. :) Materials: Hero Arts Stamps (Basic Lower & Upper Case Letters, Wavy Leaf Pattern, Many Hearts), Hero Arts Flowers, Hero Arts Button and Gems, Black Buttons, BoBunny Paper, String. Have a great day!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! I am so excited to share the new stamp set Ella & Friends with you! There are so many fun images to choose from in this set that all centers around the BEST elephant stamp ever. ;) I started my scene by stamping the elephant, then I masked in the bunny and bubble blower. Finally, I stamped the bubbles, puddle and splashes. I was SO fun to create. I colored the images with Copics and added a little ink to complete my scene. I trimmed it down to fit inside of the Instalove Creative Cuts and stamped the sentiment. I know you'll agree that stamping this set is super fun but first... To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is picking 3 winners to win their choice of stamp set! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede.
