On the Stamping 411 blog, the operators take turns posting on Thursdays--just whatever they want to share!! Today was my first post on "Whatever Thursday"!! I decided to do a Set Sampler--to show you many ways to use one stamp set!! Today's set is Pennant Parade! If you have other sets you'd like to see, please leave me a comment, and I'll give it a try!
This first card shows you a card you might expect from this set:
Yes, it's a birthday card, using the pennant stamp as......pennants!! This is very easy to do with the coordinating Petite Pennants Builder Punch!
Look, you can use this same stamp as a Christmas tree:
Just turn it upside down!! And, I colored in the garland with a Riding Hood Red Stampin' Write Marker.
In keeping with the "upside down" theme, here are some fun ice cream cones:
The ice cream scoops are 1 3/4" circles! I punched a template from a window sheet, then sponged in with Pretty in Pink ink! Wouldn't this make a sweet card for a little girl?!
Now, this card is just wild!!! LOL!!! I used the same stamp from the previous card, and created a back ground!!I started with Not Quite Navy ink, and stamped a row of the pennants. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure they were somewhat straight! I continued all the way down with the Not Quite Navy pennants, then came back and "filled in" with the Cajun Craze Pennants! Would make a fun card for a special guy's birthday!!
I hope you enjoy the Set Sampler!! We'll see you tomorrow for another great sketch challenge!!
