A Banner Banter Bag 🙂 Made with the Irresistible Designer Series paper, sponged in Bermuda Bay and made with the Gift Bag Punch Board. The flower in the center is the new Cotton paper – 10 layers – cut with the Floral Frames Collection. This is super simple to do because the layers can all be cut at one time. Then you just need to stagger the layers and staple them (twice – make an x) in the middle and pull them up one layer at a time. Kind of scrunch them as you go and you will have a beautiful flower to attach to your bag. The little tag is Banner Banter stamped on a piece punched with the flag punch. Fill and give! Hugs, Fran
Our challenge this month was, well…..challenging! We were to make cards using dies that match the first initial of our first and last names! So for this card I chose some Fancy Frames and the Star Accordion Album. The front of the card has the 3-D star, the Star Fancy Frame Edges, some Red Glimmer paper and glitter brads.
The little flag banner at the top shows on the inside too!
The inside shows the red, white and blue – 4th of July card. See the banner showing on both sides? Just make 2 the same size and attach them to the card and each other.
The middle section uses Stampin Up’s Irresistible You paper that has stripes embossed on it. I added a sentiment from Banner Banter and the USA is die cut using the ECD Alphabet 1 die in Marina Mist. The edges are also from the Star Fancy Frames set.
The right side star is not popped up because it closes into the card. I still inked the fold lines to give it the same appearance. So grab some red, white and blue paper and play along! You can find all the cards for this challenge on Karen’s Facebook page. Hugs, Fran
Every had an idea in your head – and it turns out as something completely different? Well that would be this card! Using the colors from the Stacked with Love DSP, I ended up doing a Karen Burniston Katie Label Pop It Ups Pivot card using Banner Banter as the stamp set.
But I didn’t really use the DSP (just a tiny piece inside) just Back to Black and some Beach House washi tape. Hugs, Fran
This was my card for an organized shoebox swap at convention! A shoebox swap is where everyone cuts out all the pieces for their card and everyone makes them instead of just swapping. I used Banner Banter to create the swag across the top and the Maritime Designer Series Paper. Love the color combo 🙂
