Be Happy - Join Our Linky Party

About a month ago, Debbie Henderson contacted me about joining her and some other ladies in highlighting some of the new stamp sets in the Occasions catalog going live today.  Since I had just pre-ordered one of the new stamp sets, I told her I'd be happy to participate.  I've chosen the Perfect Pennants stamp set to share with you today along with some new designer paper and dies.  I think this stamp set is very versatile for different occasions.

Crushed Curry card stock was used for the base (cut 4-1/4" x 11").  The sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set was heat embossed on Crushed Curry card stock using VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder.  The sentiment and the two other pennants (cut from the Kaleidoscope designer paper and Strawberry Slush card stock) were cut using the Big Shot and the new Banners Framelits Dies (oh, the possibilities!!).  The edges were all sponged using corresponding inks.  After slightly curling the tails of the larger pennant with a bone folder, I added it to a different piece of the same designer paper, tied Bermuda Bay ribbon around it and then attached it to the card front.  The tails on the other two pennants were also curled and then they were added over the first one; the sentiment was popped up with Dimensionals.  Hearts were cut out of Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Strawberry Slush card stocks using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit.  I added them to a strip of Basic Black card stock and attached it to the card.  Pearls were added as the finishing touch.  As I'm writing this, we are at the start of a major snow storm so these bright, cheerful colors are helping to brighten the day.  Please take a moment to visit the ladies listed below.  Feel free to join us with what you create from items in the new catalog.  You are able to link up at any of our blogs.  Have a great day.
