Pennants are everywhere lately. Stampin UP has several birthday stamp sets using pennants, a pennant punch, and I’ve even seen decorating ideas using pennants as cake toppers.
Using the Flirtatious Designer Series Fabric, I came up with several projects using Stampin UP fabric on cards. Being that I’m not into sewing (I can sew a button or fix a hole in a sock, but that’s about it), the cards I made are relatively simple. I treated the fabric as paper, cutting it and adhering it just like card stock.
The above card uses pieces of fabric cut into triangles to create a pennant. I used SNAIL adhesive behind the fabric. It’s easier to put the SNAIL onto the card stock first, then adhere the fabric down. After putting the pennants in place, I glued Linen Thread along the tops of the pennants using Mono Multi Adhesive.
The stamp is from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Basic Black and colored in with coordinating SU Markers. The base is Old Olive, layered with Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The ribbon along the bottom is Pretty in Pink 1/8″ Taffeta. Below the ribbon, I punched holes using the cropadile to expose the yellow card stock underneath.
I’ll be posting more projects using the Flirtatious Designer Fabric so stay tuned…
