Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! There are 20 of us from around the globe who will be sharing our projects with you twice each month. All you need to do to follow along is click on the link at the bottom of each post.
Our focus for this month is the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and the Duet Banner Punch. This stamp set and punch are must-haves, as they work with just about every style and cover just about every occasion.
I paired up the Moroccan Nights stamp set and Moroccan dsp with the Banners suite. I started by making a card and then made a little treat box to coordinate with it.
I have used this Moroccan Nights set quite a bit, and I love the large medallion in it. I stamped it twice — once on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and once on a piece of Emerald Envy cardstock, which I punched out with the 2″ circle punch.
I stamped the banner from Thoughtful Banners with Dapper Denim ink and the sentiment with More Mustard ink, and then punched it out with the Duet Banner Punch. I love how quick and easy it is!
Some splatters from the Touches of Texture stamp set were stamped on the bottom layer, over some of the small medallions from Moroccan Nights. A piece of dsp was layered over it, and some embellishments were added to finish it off.
Using the Baker’s Box Thinlits die, I made a little coordinating treat box. The Thoughtful Banners stamp set also contains an outline image for the Classic Label Punch. There are fun little accent stamps you can add to the banners (see the Crushed Curry lines on the banners below). This makes it really easy to customize your banners, not only with the sentiments you choose but also with colored accents. So fun!
