Banner Greetings Hearts....

Playing along with TGIF Challenges #TGIF02 tonight, which is a sketch challenge..... here 'tis.
And here is my take on it.....

I've made this as an A6 note card......and then I decided that as I had a whole sheet of paper out, I'd make a set of note cards.
Here's another colour way, with a different position to the bling.

And then here is the set of 5 all together.

I've created this set as part of my challenge to myself to actually USE some of my stash of craft supplies this year...... for this project, I've used some non-SU! DSP, and some retired stamps and punch shapes. 
Here's my trick for this post though......don't you love the perfect ends to the banners?  Use your square punch!!  As long as you line up the corners of the punch with the edges of the banner strip, you'll get a perfectly 'square' banner tail every time!!
Cardstock and Ink: Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Whisper White.
Stamp Set: Banner Greetings (retired), Dotty Angles
Other: DSP and coloured rhinestones from the craft stash.
Happy Stamping......Manda xx


  1. Hey Manda, you have created the sweetest cards. I think I need to take a page from your book to challenge myself to USE more of my DSP stash, I have the problem I love a design of paper so much that don't want to cut it up! Leaving me with LOTS of retired dsp.

  2. A fabulous set of cards, fun and bright.

  3. Love the colors! Thanks for joining us at TGIF!
