Colorful Seasons Fiesta Smile Banners
B right and cheery card to say hello using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer series paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Tempting Turquoise Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" from Tempting Turquoise Card Stock
- 1" x 4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 4 strips of various designs from Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper all 4" long and varying in width from 1/4" to 3/4"
- 3 small flowers hand cut from a scrap of the multi-colored flowers on a white background design from Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch and slide the white strip of card stock into the punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Mount the "You Make Me Smile" sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Melon Mambo Ink Pad. Stamp it on the punched white strip so the sentiment is near the notched edge on the right. Clean the stamp using Stampin' Mist and the Stampin' Scrub. Leave the stamp on the block.
Ink up the stamp again using the Crushed Curry Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment over the previously stamped sentiment slightly to the left and up as a shadow. Clean the stamp and put it away.
Turn the unlocked Banner Triple Punch over so you can see the punching area. One at a time, slide the strips of Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper into the punch and punch a notch on the end.
Lay the punched strips of designer paper and the sentiment strip on the rectangle of Tempting Turquoise Card Stock without adhering them so that the punched edges are all on the right side. Vary how far each strip goes across the rectangle by letting the left edges hang off the left side if needed. Leave a little space between each strip.
When you are happy with the placement of each of the strips, adhere them in place one at a time using either SNAIL Adhesive or Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
Trim off excess card stock or designer series paper sticking off the left edge of the turquoise rectangle using Paper Snips.
Pick out a paper clip from the Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack and slide it onto the left side of the rectangle so it is near the top of the white sentiment strip.
Adhere the card front to the front of the Tempting Turquoise card.
Adhere the small flowers cut from the designer paper to the white sentiment strip in an overlapping bunch between the paper clip and the sentiment. Use Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere two of the flowers flat. Use a tiny piece of Stampin' Dimensionals cut from the edge of a sheet of Dimensionals to adhere the third flower.
Cut an 8" piece of Melon Mambo Thick Baker's Twine. Tie it in a small bow and trim the ends.
Adhere the bow to the top of the paper clip using a Mini Glue Dot.
