Banner Blast “Hi” Card – Stampin’ Up!

Hello from Houston, TX!!  I’ve been enjoying the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Meeting and learning a lot.  I found out some awesome news, Stampin’ Up! will be carrying a line of alcohol based markers called Blendabilities and they’ll be coming out in the first quarter of this year!!  Here are the colors that will be available soon:

  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Calypso Coral
  • Melon Mambo
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Old Olive
  • Night of Navy
  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Wisteria Wonder
  • Smoky Slate
  • Crumb Cake

It’s been fun to meet several of the Demonstrators in person that I’ve chatted with online and I’ve been able to spend time catching up with my fabulous upline, Sandi MacIver.  I hope to share some pictures of the event with you soon!!

For my card today, I used the Banner Blast stamp set and matching Banner Punch that will both be available during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration 2014 starting on Jan 28.  Hopefully most of you have received your Sale-a-bration flyers in the mail so you can see the fantastic selection this year.  I love this stamp set and punch, they were the first two items on my Sale-a-bration wish list!

My card design was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch #296 and the colors were inspired by Dynamic Duos #85.

Banner Blast - Stamp With Amy K

I started by adhering a panel of the High Tide DSP to a Whisper White panel with SNAIL.  Then I used my Paper-Piercing Tool and Stampin’ Pierce Mat to punch one hole on either side of the panel.

Banner Blast 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I placed the two Candy Dot Brad Bases about half way through the panel, then added just a touch of Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the brad stem.  I wrapped a piece of Natural Linen Thread around the brad stem, then pushed the brad down and opened the prongs on the back.  I added the touch of glue to make sure that the linen thread doesn’t come undone.

Banner Blast 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a Garden Green Candy Dot from the Regals Candy Dots pack to each of the brad bases, then I started stamping the little banners using the Banner Blast stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 28) in Garden Green and Summer Starfruit ink on a Whisper White panel.  I also colored the striped image with my Stampin’ Write Markers.

Banner Blast 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I punched the banners out with the Banner Punch (Sale-a-bration Item available Jan 28) and adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals that I’d cut in half.  I placed half of the Stampin’ Dimensionals above the thread and half below to hold the thread in place under the banners.  I finished the card front by adhering the decorated panel to a Garden Green card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adding one little Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the “hi” sentiment banner.

Banner Blast 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I used the little star image from the Banner Blast stamp set to stamp Garden Green and Summer Starfruit stars on a Whisper White panel to complete the inside of the card.
