Baby Shower Banner

I created this banner friends who has waited a long time for their first child.  I just kept adding and adding to it.  It came out so cute I almost hated to give it up!

I love all the wonderful Sizzix die cuts Stampin’ Up! now carries!  It made this a really easy project to do. These pictures just don’t do it justice.  I was in such a rush to finish and get to the baby shower I forgot to take pictures.  I had to borrow a camera after I got there and take them.  Thanks Sandy!

I clear embossed the chipboard letters twice to give them a higher shine.  Baby Banner 2

The pop-up glue dots work great for adhering the ribbon flowerets.  We learned to make these at last years SU Convention.  You baste down one side of the ribbon with a fairly strong thread and pull tight.  Tie and trim. I used the rhinestone brad to hold both flowerets together.

Let’s see if I can list all the supplies I used!  There were a lot.  And if you can believe it, absolutely no stamping. All supplies and tools are from Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted.

Paper:  Georgia Peach DSP(retired), Kiwi Kiss CS, Rock-a-Bye Girl Simply Scrapin’ Kit

Ink:  Rose Red Craft Ink

Accessories:  Circle of Fire Pink Rhinestones, Pretties Kit, Button Bouquet, 1/4 Pretty in Pink, 5/8 stripped & 1 1/4 Pink Pirouette & 5/8 Regal Rose grosgrain, Kiwi Kiss Satin ribbon, Pretty in Pink Taffeta, clear embossing powder, and On Board Loads of Letters & Timeless Type chipboard.

Tools: Bigz XL die – Pennant, 1 3/8 circle punch, mini glue dots, & pop-up glue dots.

I think that’s everything!   

Thanks for looking.
