Banner Blast

I finally had a chance to play with some Sale-a-Bration goodies, and have had so much fun with Banner Blast and the coordinating Banner punch. 

This is a simple layout that you can alter and make a huge variety of cards using.  I've included two variations on this design below, and as you'll see, I've basically just changed the colors and one of the  stamps.  I've intentionally left the bottom two blank, because I'm not quite sure how I'll use them yet.  They are great for Valentine's Day, but also as a just because kind of card.  My daughter has fallen in love with the pink one, so I may just give that to her to tell her I love her.

Tips & Tricks

  • Don't be afraid to play with color!  I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again, but it's fun to experiment with different color combinations.  When you find a layout you love, stick with it and mix up the colors!
  • Pop those banners up off the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.  They are one of my favorite adhesives because they are quick and easy, give great dimension, and best of all, are very affordable!
