It's 2015 and the Stamp Review Crew is kicking off the New Year by sharing ideas for the Stampin' Up! Perfect Pennants stamp set! So many possibilities for this set and you may have just popped over from Heidi Baks blog or perhaps you are starting here. Whichever is the case, you are sure to get loads of inspiration by going on through our hop!
I've got four projects for you today...yes, you read that right, I did say 4 projects! Figured I'd kick off the year with a bang! Let's get right to the projects:
Lassoed up a wish! This card features three stamps from perfect pennants -- the star, the dots, and the make a wish sentiment. And, of course, I used the coordinating Banners Framelits. The lasso is just a little bit of Linen Thread looped around a couple fingers and attached to the back of the pennant.
Here's the next one:
Same background, same lasso effect (just doubled up), and a whole new sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. This time I set-off the sentiment by framing it with some Old Olive cardstock.
One more with this same starry background element:
This time, there is only a tiny slice of the starry backdrop and plus the sweet little "hello" pennant on this one. The Lost Lagoon focal point at the back is simply a matter of the pressing the inkpad onto the card base...can't get much easier than that for creating a background!
Creating the Starry Background
1. Take a piece of Whisper White cardstock and apply So Saffron ink to it directly by pressing down your ink pad -- apply at random angles and allow for some overlap to add "texture" and dimension.
2. Ink up your star from the Perfect Pennants stamp set with Hello Honey and stamp many times varying your spacing and angles.
To create all the cards you saw above, I inked up 1/2 of a sheet of Whisper White (5.5 x 8.5) -- this gave me plenty to work with to create the 3 cards.
Now if you'll recall, I said there were 4 projects today -- the last one is a bit different from the others:
This is a sweet, simple and very CASE-able gift tag. Can't believe how well the colors coordinate with my dragonfly vase! I based my color choices off the Five on Friday color combo I shared the other day, but it sure appears that the choices could have come straight from the vase!
