Happy Tuesday!!!! You know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! This technique is something you have seen before but now there is a NEW simple way to get the look! Banners are super “in” right now but frustrating to get the perfect look. I always used this technique – cut straight up in the center and then from the corner to that cut straight line! This would get a “perfect” banner each time!!! Well if that never worked for you or really want quick and simple banners, the Banner Triple Punch is for you!!!
The forecast this week is showing rain and cloud all week! I’m not too worried about it because it has been in the forecast for the past 3 days and we have only gotten a light sprinkle twice! It still isn’t what I like to see when looking at the weather but with every cloud there is a silver lining! Lots of indoor stamping time!!!!
This card was quick and simple and uses the NEW In-color Cucumber Crush!! I love this vibrant green color….makes me think of grass. A nice rain shower does make the grass bright and green! There is another silver lining! 🙂 I added some banners with Whisper White and some Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper! To make the banners, I used the Banner Triple Punch! This punch is super handy and makes perfect banner every time. The Designer Series Paper is 2″ and the Whisper White is 1-1/2″! I used the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set for the greeting, trees, and cloud!!! I stamped the tree trunks in Chocolate Chip with the middle one really low to add depth to the trees! The leaves were stamped on scrap paper in Cucumber Crush and punched out with the Tree Builder Punch! The cloud was stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out with the Tree Builder Punch as well! I adhered 2 of the leaves and the cloud with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Love them! When I did this card in my stamp class, many of the stampers added some Dazzling Details to their cloud and it looked so fabulous!
There are so many great ways to use the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set. You can check out more samples using this stamp set and the Banner Triple Punch here, here, and here!
