Bridal Shower Floral Banner

June 13, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

This banner is for the bridal shower that started the whole crazy stamping thing. After I made all the invitations and thank you cards, I knew I wanted the decorations to match as well. I started with this banner.

The whole banner

Details

Extra Details: I started by cutting the scalloped circles from some patterned paper on my Cricut machine. I also cut the white letters with my Cricut machine. I created each panel for the banner out of white card stock. I adhered the scalloped circles and letters to the panels. I stamped the floral images on each panel. I tried to make them look random and organic without making myself crazy. I also added a few bees for interest. After all the ink was dry, I hole punched the top corners and used white ribbon to attach them all together.  

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Bee Mine and Penelope’s Blossoms

Ink: Distress Ink in Dusty Concord

VersaMagic Chalk Dew Drop Inks in Perfect Plumeria, Purple Hydrangea, and Spanish Olive

This is a wedding card I made. Lawn Fawn had just release the Happy Wedding stamp set. I loved the knot stamp in that set, but didn’t really want to buy the whole set just for that. So I used the twine that Lawn Fawn sends with your order to recreate the same look.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A4 card

Extra Details:  I started by water coloring an entire piece of water color paper. I layered blues, greens and purples until I got a background I liked. I cut the piece into smaller pieces. I ended up with seven panels and three strips. I needed eight cards, so I adhered the panels to a scrap piece of paper to make an eighth panel. I trimmed the top of the panels to look like waves. Then, the kiddos and I started stamping. We used dye inks to stamp everything. I adhered the panels to white card bases and was done.

I just bought some very cheap water color pencils and wanted to play with them. I had also recently seen a video about spot light coloring, so I figured that would be a good technique to play with the water colored pencils.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of water color paper. I stamped an all over pattern using cupcakes, cherries, and hearts. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which did smudge when I added water. I lightly traced a circle using a jar lid. I added the water color pencil and used a water brush to blend it out.

I kept the color to the inside of the circle. I used the black water colored pencil to add a bit of color and some shadows to the rest of the images.

Once dry, I adhered the water color panel to a black card base. I also added a sentiment banner. I inked the edges of the banner to help it stand out.

Oh my first attempt at ink blending. I only owned one color of distress ink, no ink blending tools, no dies, and only post it notes to use as masking paper.

I used the rock n roll technique to gets lots of colors on my rainbow arcs. I added a sentiment and then hand cut a banner shape. I felt the card need a little something more, so I hand cut another banner shape from a piece of patterned paper. After adhering everything together, the card was finished.
