MORE BANNER BLAST CARDS:

Hello there! Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration, so I wanted to share a few more cards before these sets are gone for good:( These 3 are made with Banner Blast and the coordinating Banner Punch. I got inspiration from other demonstrators, so I'll list their names and original card below each card.

I got the idea for this card from Christine Miller @ www.mystampinlady.com. I used a Crumb Cake base and added a strip of Birthday Basics DSP along the side. I stamped the sentiment~from Yippee-Skippee, in Gumball Green onto Pink Pirouette Cardstock, and added a piece of Summer Starfruit Satin Ribbon underneath before I attached it to the card. I added a trio of In Color Dahlias with Glue Dots.



I stamped the pennants in Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit and punched them out with the Banner Punch. I trimmed a bit off the tops and added a Vintage Trinket safety pin. I couldn't decide if I liked the Summer Starfruit of Gumball Green ribbon better, so I made one with each~what do you think? I changed up the pennants a bit too. I'm really going to miss this ribbon when it retires with these In Colors. It always makes a perfect bow.

I got the idea for this card from Dawn Olechefske @ DOstamping@yahoo.com. A fun, simple card that came together really quickly:)

I started with a Tangerine Tango base and stamped the sentiment in the same ink. It is from A Dozen Thoughts. After that, I wrapped a piece of Calypso Coral Baker's Twine around it and attached it to the base with Dimensionals. I then stamped the pennants in Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango & Gumball Green. I punched them out with the Banner Punch and adhered them with Dimensionals. I popped a Basic Rhinestone to the center of the flower and called it done.

 I couldn't find a name for this card, but her blog is 1StampinNightOwl.com. I changed it up quite a bit, but I loved her idea of the pennants in the pocket. I started with a Midnight Muse Core-dinations base and used the Sanding System to roughen it up and make it look like denim. For the pocket, I used the Angled Tag Topper Punch. I used a White Gel Pen and a ruler to add the stitching. I added a couple of Vintage Trinket brads to the corners, and attached the pocket with Dimensionals along the edge.

I punched the pennants out of Polka Dot Parade DSP, wrapped them around toothpicks and used Liquid Tombow to attach them. The sentiment is stamped in Midnight Muse onto Whisper White Cardstock and is from Yippie-Skippee (obviously:) I added a Daffodil Delight flower made with the Boho Blossoms Punch and added a Neutrals Button to the center with Island Indigo Baker's Twine.

You may have noticed that I used the In Colors that will be retiring on these cards. Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple & Midnight Muse will only be around until the end of May:( You can still get the set of Markers for FREE through today only by subscribing to My Paper Pumpkin.
