"Thankful" Banner

Hello friends!  Here is a Thanksgiving banner I made for my fireplace mantle using the Day of gratitude stamp set and the custom ink pad technique we did in club last month.  The banner was completely inspired by a fall banner I saw at the St. George Regional made by SU's #1 Demonstrator of the year, Kimberly Van Diepen!

Here are each of the banner pieces close up... I have provided a list of primary supplies at the end of this post!

(Your eyes are not deceiving you.... the ribbon above and below has been dyed in Cajun Craze and More Mustard! Stay tuned for a video tutorial on this soon.... for those who attend my club workshop, we'll be learning how to do this on Sunday!)

My favorite aspect of this project was the gathering techniques for the ribbon!  (Another technique I'll be demoing in my club workshop this weekend!) ;o)

Another custom dyed ribbon in More Mustard:

Here's just a quick look at what each banner piece looked like at the beginning... After stamping my images using my custom ink pad, I sprayed three layers of my custom Smooch Spritz colors:  1) a liberal spraying of Crumb Cake, 2) A couple of squirts of Soft Suede, 3) one spritz of Early Espresso. 

After the pieces dried, I distressed the edges and inked them with some crumb cake.

Here are the primary supplies and colors used for the project:

I also used a big variety of our ribbons, buttons, and other hardware to put the finishing touches on this project.  If you have any questions at all about them, please ask! :o)  

Thanks for looking, and I hope you have been inspired to make your very own Thanksgiving banner!

Baby Shower Invitations

I recently made 40 of these cuties for a family friend... I love doing this cute and simple card style!

I used the Fox & Friends stamp set and the following color scheme (for a boy): Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Peach Parfait.

The card-base is simple enough... Run a folded piece of card stock through the Big Shot using the large Scallop Circle die then run the front of the card through again using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder!
