More bunting!


I’m loving this bunting card – so much so that I made another... and another!  This was one of the demos at my recent Stampin’ Experience event. I tried to stick to a limited product list, which is very difficult when you’re used to using everything you have! But I managed it with Party This Way, Brights inks, Brights cardstock assortment and Neutrals cardstock assortment and this lovely Pumpkin Pie taffeta ribbon. Oh, and some Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper. Oops, there was a punch on the other project, too. But pretty limited for me, nonetheless!

I began by stamping the bunting on the Whisper White cardstock. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig® to position them but you wouldn’t need it if you had the clear-mount version of the stamp set. Next I stamped the bunting again on various scraps of Greenhouse Gala paper. Here’s the trick: I cut out just the triangle, no messing around with the frilly bits for me! These were placed on top of the stamped images on the Whisper White.

A strip of ribbon and a stamped greeting in a constrasting colour were the finishing touches.

  1. Here's a secret for you...soon you'll be able to order a new punch which will punch out the scalloped pennant AND the smaller, nested triangle!! It's awesome!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
