Hi stampers! Well as the title of my post says, it's a banner day for me! What is a banner day you ask? Here's what google had to say: "It refers to a day being noteworthy or of hanging a banner of announcement, usually of good news".
Well today is noteworthy and full of good news for me as I am happy to announce that I've been asked to join the design team over on Hand Stamped Sentiments! To say that I'm excited and honored is an understatement. I feel so privileged to be part of their fabulously creative team! I really look forward to the challenges pushing my creativity further and making me step outside my comfort zone! I'm also a bit nervous as it's now my busy time at work (oh, what's that you say? I've mentioned that a couple hundred times now? LOL) and I'm also on a DT over on Splitcoast but at least now I HAVE to stamp right? I can totally tell my hubby that I can't do the dishes or sweep the floor because I have GOT to get these projects done, right? :-)
So on to the challenge at hand. The challenge this week at HSS is a Banner Bash! Banners and pennants are all the rage right now aren't they? And I'm totally on the banner bandwagon! I love them!
I've been thinking about the design of this card for a while, even before I knew about the challenge and thought this would be the perfect time to make it!
Stamps: Pennant parade, broadsheet alphabet, teeny tiny wishes
Paper: Whisper white, cherry cobbler, old olive, cajun craze, basic black, frightful sight DSP
Ink: old olive, cajun craze, basic black
Accessories: pennant punch, circle punch, modern label punch, neutrals glimmer brads, basic rhinestones
Everyone knows I love Halloween so when I got my hands on this DSP I had to make a Halloween card! Looking back maybe I should have sponged my sentiment and possibly the cajun craze pennants but I like how it turned out. It's busy but I like busy:-) This card actually went together pretty fast since I used so many punches. Our punches make it so easy to make a great card quickly! I had thought about cutting out the letters but that would have been a lot of fussy cutting and I wanted to mimic the polka dots in the background as well.
I hope you enjoyed all the cards as HSS today. Now. head over there and play along with us! You know you want to:-)
