I used the Sassy Salutations and Banner Banter stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create a quick banner birthday card to share with you today. I have tons of fall birthdays in my family so I’m always looking for quick birthday cards and the non-halloween pieces of the Motley Monsters DSP worked perfectly to create this one!
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #92.
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Sassy Salutations stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Motley Monsters DSP. I sprinkled the sentiment with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then heat embossed it. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock with SNAIL.
I used my Paper-Piercing Tool and my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and I poked holes in the upper corners of the layered panel. I placed a Candy Dots Brad Base through the holes, then wrapped a strand of Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine around the prongs before opening the prongs in the back to hold the brads in place. I added a Crushed Curry Candy Dot from the Regals Candy Dots pack to the center of each brad base, then adhered the stamped panel to a Bermuda Bay card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a panel from the Motley Monsters DSP to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock with SNAIL, then used my Paper Snips to cut the large banner. I adhered the banner to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the chevron image from the Banner Banter stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a Sahara Sand panel an I punched it out with the matching Banner Punch. I punched the three other banners from the Motley Monsters DSP pack with the Banner Punch. For the two longer banners, I cut strips of the DSP about 5/8″ wide, then fed it through hole in the punch so that it only punched the tail end.
I adhered the banners over the strand of Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine by cutting a Stampin’ Dimensional in half and placing one half on each side of the twine. Then I adhered the banner with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a strip of Motley Monsters DSP to a Whisper White panel inside the card.

I think banners are really fun I am seeing them every where. I really like how this card came together. Nice fun color combo.
Thanks so much Randy! 🙂
I love this cute little banner! And the brads are so fun! It also doesn’t hurt that you made the card with one of my absolute favorite colors 🙂
Thanks so much Nada! 🙂
Cute card, Amy. I love the font of the Sassy Salutations stamp set.
Thanks Melanie, it’s one of my favorite sentiment sets too! 🙂
Oh, I love your mix of patterned papers! Perfect take on the sketch!
Thanks for stopping by to leave me a comment! 🙂
My favorite thing about your card today is how you took the Motley Monsters DSP and came up with a totally different path. I’m going to definitely take a much closer look at the DSP and look even more at the alternative uses. *Thank you Amy for the DSP share, so I can see in person 🙂
I do love this card and the banner layout for a birthday card! Can’t wait to add this to my case/gotta make board 😉
Thanks Jill! Glad that you’re enjoying your DSP share. 🙂 I do love to find alternative uses for my supplies!
A fantastic card……. great colors and patterns! Perfect for CTS #92!
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment! 🙂

Love the colors you chose for your banners against the woodgrain!
