Here's a closeup of the banner that will go up after St. Patrick's day at our house. It says "SPRING" in beautiful sparkly letters, created with the Sticky Cuts Letters and the Fine Cosmos Glitter on Bashful Blue cardstock. It has tone-on-tone stamping with Sweet Stems in the bakground and I little bit of detailing with our awesome white gel pen. I chose the colors of pink, pale yellow and green, with some Rose Red in there for the flowers, both punches from the Boho BLossoms punch and felt flowers. Soft Subtles brads finished it off.
The Sticky Cuts letters are amazing for scrapbooking and monogram projects, but they really come into their own on these banners. Wanna hear a secret? I had such a great SU month that I rewarded myself with a BIG prize at the end of the month. I have the Serif Essentials Big Shot Alphabet coming! I can hardly wait. Not only will these dies cut through cardstock and paper to give me an endless supply of letters for my projects, they will also cut chipboard, actetate, felt, wall vinyl and cardboard, to name just a few materials, for incredible 3-D accents and home decor! Stay tuned for some AMAZING posts in the near future as I play with my new toy--and thank you so much to my customer friends who helped me have such a great month! Enjoy all your free Sale A Bration sets, paper and ribbon!
