One of the brand new sets in the catalog is called Thoughtful Banners.  It’s on page 73 and coordinates with the Duet Banner Punch.  You can even buy them as a bundle and save 10%.  The set has a ton of words so you can create cards for many different occasions – I made one for Father’s Day.


This could easily be changed for just about anything – just choose different words.

I used my grid paper as a guide when I stamped my lines – just line it up and then you can use the lines as a guide for placement.  The lines are Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate.  I used the little double arrow head to just scatter some accents around.

The words are stamped in Basic Gray ink with Father’s Day on a scrap piece that was punched out.  This set is photopolymer and one of the fun things to do with this style of stamp is that you can bend it.  So I bent the words Father’s Day to fit inside my curved banner!  The other words are stamped directly on the stripes.

I tied a bit of linen thread around the top and then attached it to a Crumb Cake card base.  Play around with some other colors and change the words to make lots of fun cards.

Don’t forget to play along with my scavenger hunt – I posted it on Monday.
