Banners and Dies

DRU Challenge #142
Double D Challenge – Banners

I’m spending the day in my stamping space, working on challenges and attempting to finish Easter cards. I’m not quite sure how cohesive this card is but the more I look at it; I do believe it is growing on me. So the first challenge is the Dies R Us Challenge #142 – Anything Goes Using Any Brand of Die DRU Sells. For this challenge I pulled out my Impression Obsession Die 264-ZZ. For such a detailed die, this cuts beautifully. I layered this die 3 times and then backed it with some glitter paper. (I ran out of white which was my preferred choice so used silver) I also used a Tim Holtz Sizzix Celebrate word die that was cut out on some rainbow patterned paper from SSS.

The Double “D” Challenge is a Banner Challenge. To meet the challenge guidelines I decided on my Pretty Pink Posh Layered Party set of stencils using the Banner stencil. The banners were first rainbow sponged and the second layer of banners were created by using Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste.

  1. I really like this card and think you did a great job on it. The die you have chosen is just right. And your banners look good. I have no banner stamps at all – must rectify that.
