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!

You Made My Day

Happy Thursday! Another card just for fun today! Sometimes I get so wrapped up in submitting that I forget to share what I love here! Mama Elephant and Avery Elle are two great companies. Great stamps. Great people. This card combines the best from both companies. :)
 

I started the card off by creating a mask and inking the wave shape. The silhouette is from So Breezy and the sentiment is from Handwritten Notes and the small line detail on the surfboard is from On Target.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Exciting day!

Hi Everyone! Today is an exciting day! My friend, turned super star crafter, Heather Campbell has her first blog post up as a GO TO GAL! So cool. She is the PERFECT fit for the Paper Crafts team!!! I'm so excited for her!!!
 
I just realized its been a long time since I shared anything new on my blog so I thought I'd freshen things up around here. :)
 
I created the feathers with my Silhouette (file HERE) then stamped a few with the herringbone from  Lawn Fawn's Interlocking Backdrops. The sentiment is from THIS amazing Avery Elle set!
 

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
