LOL, I cannot believe I made it!, I couldn't find my clear blocks!! I tidies them away before Christmas and couldn't remember where!! lol, finally got them at midnight!!!
So woohoo! here I am in the first WMS Blog waltz of the year! for details of how to play along check this page, or if you want to dive straight into the list of blogs/gallery posts participating go here (you will need to be able to access the forum to see the list). Don't forget there is a wee competition running...Have fun!!!
Anyhow, I have seen a stack of cards lately with wee dinky banners on them! I love banners and thought I'd make up some of my own. I wanted ones with a fancy top and so I die cut a large circular shape with the largest die in my Spellbinders Lacey Circles die set, which I will be adding to the store in the next day or so, along with some other goodies... (shameless plug!)
I sliced up my lacey circle pizza style to get my pennant shapes, sponged the edges, distress inks of course, and inked the edges with rich cocoa memento ink! Added a few buttons, strung them on some linen thread and set aside.
I wanted a sweet background paper to set them off and so I stamped my own with the polka dots from Off Beat Backgrounds and then i went in with the spotty heart from Sweethearts. The sentiment is also from Sweethearts.
I slung the pennants over the background, which I had cut slightly smaller than the card. I put a tiny piece of foam adhesive under each pennant shape to keep it up off the card.
I stamped the card base with a text background from Text-it - I love the extra long borders, they are more than big enough to fit the entire length of a card.
Hope it tickles, I'm off to have a peep at all the other blog waltzers!
