I am loving the bling and those shades of pink in the sequins!!! The Banner Surprise June 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived and I was a little perplexed by it at first glance. Once I started playing with it, I had lots of fun! You can see the reveal of the kit here.
I created 8 total cards with only 2 of them using my own cardstock (Mint Macaron) and then I created a banner that says SUMMER!
I looked at Pinterest for some ideas with this kit since I thought I might branch out a bit. I saw a similar card to the one on the left side and just had to recreate it. I added the Washi Tape on each of the white lines and stamped the greeting on the crumb cake lines. My stamped images weren’t very straight but after I added the gold hearts and the To You I realized you couldn’t see they were crooked…..at least not as much. 🙂
I really tried to use lots of the gold alphabet letters so I got creative in the words I used!!!
Another tip on these cards. I actually placed a Mini Glue Dot on the back of the circle in the cellophane banner bag. I wanted the heart to stay upright and I didn’t want them moving all around. The little dot helps to keep them in place.
I had lots of leftover pieces so I created these 2 cards with a Mint Macaron card base. Love it!!!
Then I made this amazing SUMMER banner! I have a banner hanging in the doorway from my living room to the kitchen. I have a Spring/Summer one that has been up since about March and I thought this would be super fun and different! I love it!
I added the gold letter to the center of each circle and stamped the dots around the edge in Tip Top Taupe. I added a Mini Glue Dot to the backs of each circle to hold them in place in the banner cellophane bag! I used a spoon to add in the sequins to each of the banners and then sealed it with the Washi Tape.
I love it and the light catches all of the glittery pieces and shines so beautifully!!! Getting 8 cards and a banner out of one kit is super fabulous and I still have some supplies left over. These kits are so amazing and well worth the $19.95 (plus tax)! This kit also came with 2 ink pads – Mint Macaron & Tip Top Taupe.
