party bunting

Morning all! 

Don't you just love getting new stuff to play with?! I am super bad at it. Occassionally I borrow stamp sets/punches/dies off my downline when I fancy something different to play with. Below is such an occasion. 

Party Bunting

Stamp Set: Party This Way
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Old Olive
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Old Olive
Punch: Petite Pennants
Big Shot: Timeless Type Junior Alphabet
Accessories: Brads, Baker's Twine

I stamped a load of the balloons in the background using a masking technique so I could get them to overlap each other. I also used the stamping off technique for a lighter shade - so they would match with the bunting but also let the bunting stand out over quite a busy background! The pennants were stamped and punched and then the letters for the word PARTY cut out with the timeless type alphabet. I threaded all the pennants onto some baker's twine and fastened it with some brads. 

I hope you enjoyed my little playful creation! 

Happy Stampin',

  1. Great use of this stamp set! Love the bright colors and they're perfect for a birthday party!

    1. Thanks! I love the brights family but don't find that I use them to their full colour potential all that much so just trying to get a really pow bright card without being garish! xx
