In Colour Birthday Blossoms

I am on a mission this week
Oh Yes! 
I rarely use Designer Series Papers as I love to stamp my backgrounds and make my own Decorative Papers, but Stampin Up! Has released some wonderful DSP packs and stacks this year
So I am going to try and sneak in some papers this week
I cannot promise it will be every day, otherwise my OCD is likely to go into crisis ha ha
But I am going to try my best

And so I am kicking off by going with mostly Designer Series Papers and just a tinsy  winsy bit of rubber stamping

I Know ... I am totally out  of my Comfort Zone here!

The Rubber Stamping comes from one of the new Stamp Sets to the Stampin Up! Catalogue

Birthday Blossoms

It is a stunning stamp set, and later this week I have another card, using the same colours and DSP, but a different template all together.

The Banner Triple Punch gives you triple the banner options in one punch.
 You can make banners in three widths:
1 inch; 1 1/2 inches   &  2 inches
in any length. 

Just slide the paper in, punch, and get perfectly notched banners 
or gift tags, bookmarks, belly bands every time.
You can go with a single banner end, or double end
The 1" banner is perfect for using as a base for the new Washi Label Punch, giving you stunning sentiment labels

And today's colours are from the 2015-2017 In Colours, of:
Mint Macaron & Tip Top Taupe
With a card base of Delightful Dijon cardstock
And the main panel is Whisper White Cardstock

Table built using Product Table Builder by The Crafty Owl - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

For today's card, I began by creating my A6 card base using Delightful Dijon Cardstock
I then trimmed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the Birthday Sentiment from Birthday Blossoms, off setting the sentiment to the bottom left, using Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink Pad.

Next came the banners
For these I used 2 different papers from the 2015-2017 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack
As these papers are double sided, I only needed 2 strips, trimmed to the sizes mentioned above
As you can see, the create perfectly nestled banners.
I went with one banner end and the other end was straight.
All strips were cut to the same length, as I wanted an Art Deco style
With those wonderful angles,,

I placed Stampin Dimensionals on the reverse of each banner and layered then up
Next I tool some White  Jute Ribbon, and pulled through a long single strand ( the individual strands of the ribbon can be teased apart quite easily)

I made some lovely large looping circles with the strand and attached this to the reverse of the widest banner using some Fast Fuse Adhesive
Then the banners were mounted onto the Stamped Panel.
Finally, I used Fast Fuse Adhesive to mount the card front onto the card base.

Quick, simple and effective.
Swap the DSP with any of the others in the Stampin Up Catalogue to change the 'theme' of the card, and the possibilities are endless!

Happy Stamping
