Fun with Banners



I LOVE, LOVE all the banners I've seen around lately!  My biggest PTI wish right now is a build-your-own banner set!! I'd love that so much!!  I know other companies also have banner sets and I might cave if PTI doesn't come out with one but I just LOVE how PTI makes their sets and the thought that goes into the various elements and how all the elements work together! 

Earlier this week I showed you how I used the Up, Up & Away set to make a boat.   Now, I've used it to create my banner!  Today I am on a getaway with Amy, Barb & Laurie and we were each to make a shoebox swap project.  This is the one that I came up with.  Hope they like it! 


I stamped the kite image on white paper and then cut out the top triangles to make the banner.  I attached each one with a glue dot so that they could have a little "movement" on the bottom and then also attached the pearl at the tip. 

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed this card!!  Have a great weekend!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps:  Up, Up & Away, Signature Greetings
Paper: Melon Berry, Aqua Mist, Kraft, White
Ink: Melon Berry, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Jumbo Java VersaMagic
Other: White pearls, SC Buttons, Vintage Twine, Sunshine Embossing Plate

  10. Oh how wonderful that you girls live close enough to get together! I hope you had a wonderful time. You are very clever on how you created the banner, I love it. I have been noticing cute banner stuff as well lately. I seen a digital image somewhere. But just this morning I seen an adorable card and tutorial using the Pink Persimmon set. I have to enable you :

    You can stamp the inside with all these different pattern options and then the outside seperately. They actually have another banner set as well. If I could afford it, I would have ordered it immediately, too cute.

  19. Love, love, love this! I've been dying to make a banner card & hadn't even thought of using the kite. Great idea! I have to ask though - what is a shoebox swap? Sounds intriguing!

  21. Oh my cuteness! I am SO with you in my love of banners. I even purchased a triangle punch from Big Lots last week when I saw it for next to nothing just so I can make some mini patterned paper banners. Love this card!

  23. Just found your blog and you have so many fun ideas! I've loved PTI for a long time, and was thinking they already had a banner set of some kind, so I went looking on the website to see. They don't have a set that is JUST banners, but It's a Celebration - http://www.papertreyink.com/stamps_itsacelebration.html - has a small banner that's customizable, along with some other fun sentiments and images. Just in case you can't wait for them to come out with something else... ;)
