Here's a very sweet and shabby card I have made for an upcoming baby shower. I have used the brand new Pennant Punch from the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog from Stampin' Up! The new punch is a MUST have item as the possibilities are are HUGE. My mix of papers are from the retiring Love Letter DSP package, and for dressing up the card I added a few of my favorite things: a Paper Daisy, hardware, Crochet Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, and a Trinkets Crown. With that being said I am playing along with two challenges this week. One is over at the Shabby Tea Room. The second is over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I have also added this card to this week's linking party at Passionately Artistic.
For each letter I used the Timeless Type Rub-Ons (retiring 6/30) and punched them out using the 1/2" Circle Punch. Then each letter is mounted on a flower from the Boho Blossom Punch. Those two pieces are layered onto the smaller triangle from the Pennant Punch which has been punched out of the Wood Sheets and that whole stack is layered on Love Letter Designer Series Paper (retiring 6/30) from the scallop triangle from the Pennant Punch. A piece of Linen Thread runs through each pennant to link them all together.
Everything is mounted on a panel of designer paper which has been run through the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. The inside is done up nice and cute too! The sentiment comes from Something to Celebrate stamp set. While the word "baby" comes from the stamp set called Tiny Tags.I think the Trinket Crowns and Keys from Stampin' Up! are so much fun to add to projects. They just take your cards and things to a whole new level of awesomeness. Over at Hand Stamped Sentiments they have more cool ideas as their challenge theme this week is "trinkets and charms."
Always be happy craftin, Elizabeth
