Create!

I just finished a project that I've had in mind since I first saw the new Perfect Pennants Die. This was a lot of fun to make and it's going to look cute hanging in my stampin' space.

I used a variety of DSP...some current, like the Regal Rose polka dot print from the Brights DSP Pack & Paisley Petals and some retired, such as Springtime Vintage & Elegant Soiree. As long as it fit into my color scheme of Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose & So Saffron it was fair game! It's a great way to use up some scraps. Here's a closer look at the left side...

I just love the scalloped circle included on the Perfect Pennant die! Each pennant has 3 layers...one is chipboard, one card stock and the last one is dsp which I just cut off about 1/2 inch of the top so it makes a nice layer on the base. The chipboard just gives it a little more stability. Here's a look at the right side...

The letters were cut using the Simple Letters Dies. I used grosgrain ribbon and the frayed ribbon technique to make the little "tassels" on each pennant. Then I topped it with a button or brad. See the little polka dotted brad on the "c" & the "e"? Those are the new Designer Printed Brads...and they are sooooo CUTE! They are available only in the newest In Colors...but I figured the Pool Party looked close enough to Baja Breeze to work here. I was almost finished with my banner when UPS showed up with my 1st new catalog order! So I was able to use the brads and one other new item.  Check out the last "e"...
That's one of the new Designer Frames Embossing Folders. I was surprised that they are smaller than I thought, but happy that the Extra Large Oval punch layers nicely inside. I used a variety of other dies, punches, etc to make my "create" banner, but I'm too excited to go play with my new stuff, so I'm going to wrap this post up. I'm sure you won't blame me...LOOK... It's like Christmas in July!
Can you guess which set of new stamps I'm going to play with first? Stop back by again soon to see. :-)
