Tonight is our monthly stampin' club meeting hosted by Johnna B. I am looking forward to seeing the ladies and getting a little scrappy time, too! Since banners are oh, so hot, I thought I would create a little 6X6 scrapbook page using a banner. For this particular banner, I used the party hats from the Party Hearty stamp set. I colored the stamp using my watercolor crayons, misted with water and stamped. Very simple. I topped it off with Daffodil Delight pom pom trim (LOVE) and a Party This Way sentiment from the stamp set titled Party This Way. I finished it off with some dazzling diamonds and some embellishments from the FREE Ice Cream Parlor set you get for every $50 you spend for Sale-a-Bration!!!!Here are a few cards I made as samples for the card we are going to create. I went with a tri-fold card. For the first card, though, I punched on the wrong side, so I just cut the third side off and made a regular card out of it. I added some champagne glass glitter around the circle and a butterfly from Thanks for Caring.
Here is what I really wanted to do with this card. I made a damask background using the flourish stamp from the Bliss stamp set (another FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set!).
Here is a closeup of the butterfly. I colored it with Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, and Early Espresso Markers and stamped it. I added Smooch Pearl Accents to the top for a touch of shimmer and elegance.
Here is the inside of the card. I stamped the flourish in Blushing Bride and then the Bliss sentiment on top in Early Espresso. I finished it off with a tiny bit of Early Espresso ribbon to hold it closed.
Finally, for a variation, I made the same card using the Ice Cream Parlor paper and the Aviary stamp set.
Here's the inside - it says You're too kind and has a few more little flowers around it.
