Today at Your Creative Connection we are keeping things small. Our challenge is to create with tiny stamps and dies/punches. The new Banner Year Bundle launched in the new mini catalogue and it seemed like the perfect fit for this creative challenge!
The Banner Year stamp set has so many images and greetings that you can use it to stamp for a multitude of occasions and that is exactly what I did!
It also comes in a bundle with the Banner Pick a Punch which is perfect for adding your greetings to your cards.
Aren’t they adorable? All these cards were made using one stamp set and one punch and just different inks and matching cardstock.
I love the idea of using small stamps in varying colours to make your own patterned paper. First up was this simple Christmas card. The holly was created with Old Olive & Real Red ink.
All the greetings were heat embossed in gold and punched using one of the two options from the Banner Pick a Punch.
This one is my absolute favourite. Goodness knows who I will send a card to with the greeting ‘Happy Fall, y’all’ but I don’t care, I just love it and it makes me smile! I stamped the squirrel in Soft Suede ink and the leaves in Mossy Meadow, Soft Seafoam & Cinnamon Cider.
I love the little envelope with the heart which I stamped in Blushing Bride ink and heat embossed the heart in gold. The greeting didn’t suit the Banner Pick a Punch so I used the Layering Square Dies to create a focal point instead.
And finally these little pumpkins. So quick and simple. I used Pumpkin Pie Ink and Basic Black memento ink for the face. The stalk and leaf were coloured with an Old Olive & Soft Suede marker.
Which one is your favourite? Mine has to be the Squirrels 🙂
When I ordered the Banner for You stamp set I expected to use it on small projects or treats and never thought about creating a full card but I am so pleased with how they turned out and am surprised at how many different cards for so many occasions were possible! It is a great value bundle too at £33.25 for both the stamp set and punch.
It is my last post being part of Your Creative Connection. Unfortunately my time is being squeezed and I’m struggling to keep up with my to do list so I have decided to bow out gracefully. I have so enjoyed sharing with you all and have loved the challenges and I really do encourage you to give them a try!
So lets go and see what the other members of Your Creative Connection have created for us? I am excited to see what Vicki has made.
