Tuesday's Technique class was using Sale-A-Bration products to make cards, featuring the Banner Punch -- Hooty-Hoo! I just love that little punch!
By inserting a small strip of paper into just the V-shape side, and a couple of scores at each end, you can make a quick and easy banner any length.
Or with no score lines, you can come up with a quick and easy card! Here it is layered with two strips, 1 at 9/16 and 1 at 7/16. I also used the stamp from Petal Parade. Inspiration from Tami W. Isn't this awesome?
Here's another strip made using the banner punch, then attaching your own color choice of different banners using the Sale-A-Bration Banner Blast stamp set. Saying from Perfectly Penned. Inspiration from Peggy C. and LaMuir. LOVE It!
This one makes a simple, smaller note card. I used the largest of the Banners Framelits Dies from our Occasions 2014 Catalog. You want to put the die just above the fold before running through the Big Shot. On on side, from the center, make a score at 1". I used the Sweet Sorbet DSP scraps to make the top and 3 banners punched. I did not use any thread under the banners, and topped each end with a Rhinestone. I also used a piece of the Pool Party thread from our SAB Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack. Inspiration from Stephanie. Cute-Cute-Cute!!!
Here I also used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch from our Occasions 2014 Catalog to make the tag that holds the banner. You only need a couple of short pieces of ribbon to insert and wrap around the top layer which I used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder from our SAB 2014 products. The Linen Thread was simply draped over the top of the tag, using dimensionals to pop the banners with a glue dot at top to hold down the linen thread. The greeting is from You're Lovely stamp set from SAB 2014. Inspiration from Linda B. Cute - Quick - Easy!!!
Here's another card using the banner punch without stamping any image before punching, along with the Banners Framelits Dies. I used Melon Mambo with Basic Black. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to hold down the White Baker's Twine and instead of knotting the ends, added Rhinestones. I punched out the You're Lovely stamp with a 1-3/4" punch and layered it on a Deco Labels Collection Dies. Inspiration from Norma P.
And last, I just wanted to show off my favorite card using the Banner Punch... we made this in our January class... see post of February 1st for supplies used. Inspired by Lisa R/Jennifer T.
