Flirtatious Fabric {Birthday Pennant}

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…

Love & Caring

I made this card for a monthly swap. The base is Pretty in Pink, layered with Whisper White card stock. I made three panels for the front, and stamped images from Thanks for Caring (Mini Catalog) in Chocolate Chip ink. Then, using Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink markers, I colored in the images.

Along the bottom, I layered 5/8″ Grosgrain Chocolate Chip Ribbon on Whisper White card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

To finish off the card, I added a Bitty Button tied with linen thread.

Sail Away Masculine Card

This is a really versatile masculine card–Father’s Day, Birthday, etc. The stamp is called Sail Away from the latest Mini Catalog.

For the base, I used Pear Pizazz card stock. I stamped the sailboat on Watercolor Paper with Brown Stazon ink and then colored the image with Stampin UP Markers and blended them with an Aquapainter. That was layered on So Saffron card stock.

Across the card, I used Baja Breeze card stock embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. On either side, I attached clear Bitty Buttons threaded with Linen Thread.
