Pennant Parade

The new Pennant Parade stamp set and punch is SO much fun!  I love all the different things you can make with it…ice cream cones, Christmas trees, birthday hats…and, of course, pennants!

 

I used Technostampers Sketch today as the basis for my card!  I loved the clean lines to it.  I took my colors from the Big Top Birthday Designer Paper…although I switched out the Tempting Turquoise for Pacific Point.  I had originally thought of going with a red/white/blue theme.
 

 

And here is my card…

 

 

Very simple card…hmmm…I see I forgot to add the little rhinestone bling to the tassels like I intended!  Oh well!  lol!  I'll add them before I send it out for someone's birthday!

 

The base of the card is Real Red.  I layered on Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I cut two strips of the Big Top Birthday DSP at different lengths.  I punched a 1 3/4 Circle of Pacific Point cardstock.  On top, I stamped two of the "pennants" in Daffodil Delight and Real Red, then punched with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch.  I stamped the little "asterisk" in Real Red and Daffodil Delight and punched with the 3/8 Circle from Itty Bitty Punches.  I also stamped Wish Big in Pacific Point and placed along the edge of the circle.  I think it is a fun, quick and easy card…suitable for ANY age!  It has such playful colors! 

 

Well, I have TONS to do the next couple weeks.  Need to finish up the wedding favors, finish up the Rehearsal Dinner centerpieces and favors and get the house cleaned up for company coming in!  Plus…get ready for my Stamp Clubs this week!  Yikes!!!
