Bunches of Banners
Do you tend to hoard your Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper? I do. I hate to make that first cut in any sheet. So at the end of the catalog when paper retires, I always have a lot left. It’s sad. So I’m determined to use my paper this year.
Here’s another template for using your paper (and, remember, when you buy three designer series paper packs this month, you can select a fourth – free!).
This template is perfect for using up scraps. You can use the Banner Triple Punch for super easy banners. Or, you can use the Banners Framelits dies. Or, you can do as I did and simply cut them yourself.
I cut one 3/4″ strip of the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper and a 1″ strip of another sheet of the Blooms & Bliss. Then I cut two lengths of each strip, so I could use all four patterns. I cut a vertical slit in the bottom center of each strip (about 1/2″ long), then cut from each bottom corner to the top of the slit. It’s an easy way to create a super simple banner.
I stamped the sentiment from One Big Meaning in VersaMark ink, then embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I wanted to use Copper, but I think the cat took it. She’s discovered my stamp table, and I am not happy. I added a strip of Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape to the top of the card. I forgot to add ribbon to the top layer before I glued it down. I also forgot to cut the base layer 4-1/4″ x 11″, so I couldn’t tie the ribbon around the card. So – washi tape to the rescue!
To pull in the gold a bit more, I added some Metallics Sequins with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. And there you go. Easy way to use up paper scraps.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Hope you have a wonderful day!
