I *heart* banners and with this one, you can build your own!

I'm back today with another card I created using the new release Stephanie Ackerman stamps from Purple Onion Designs. 

Like many other crafters these days, I'm totally smitten with anything banner related so when I saw this "Build-a-banner" set I was giddy with excitement.  The set comes with eight different banner flags so you can design your own custom banner!  You can either stamp the images individually or do what I did on this card and lay them all out on your paper and then stick them all at once onto your acrylic block in the shape you desire and then stamp with ink onto the paper (the stamps come unmounted but I added my own cling mount to them).  Once I finished stamping them onto the grey paper, I adhered my string across the top (or you could also hand draw it) with lots of little bows and then paper pieced the centers of the banner.  To create the sentiment for this card I stamped the vintage typewriter "thank you very much" twice across both the top and bottom of the main panel of the card.

See you later this week with some more creations---thanks for stopping by :)
