Many Mustache Birthday

 Cammie was clowning around with the many mustache stamp #122917 and created a darling and simple birthday card.  The mustache is embossed and the clown hat is made using the Petite Pennants builder punch #122361 and the coordinating pennant parade stamp set #122742.  Oh and a happy 50th birthday to my dear friend Lisa!

Angel among us

Before I post Cammie’s cards for the pennant on parade workshop, I thought I would add a very creative card that Cammie came up with using scraps on from her table.  This little angel is oh so sweet and quite easy to re-create.  Tomorrow, I will wrap up the pennant workshop by posting all 3 of Cammies very creative cards using a technique that will knock your socks off.

Yes it is Cheezy

One of my customers loves cheez-its and it has become a tradition to see how I can decorate the cheez-it box.  This was a very late night project so it had to be quick but in theme.  So I created a belly band complete with Rudoph from the pennant punch.  Look closely because his antlers are tangled up with Christmas lights (SHHH it is a non-SU product) but is a very cute touch if I say so myself!  Stay tuned for a pennant surprise before I begin to post Cammie’s 3 very unique pennant cards.

Daisy Button

Just like the energizer bunny, the pennant cards keep going and going… Today’s card is an “inchie” style card.  The flower is formed using pennant punches.  The faux button looks like a real button but is not as bulky because it was made using a stack of at least 4 each 1 3/8 circles and topped off with a circle ring.  Punch button holes and add bakers twine to complete the look.

3 Trees for me

Pennant cards continue with a simple design using DSP punched from the eyelet border punch to create the edge on the focal point piece.  The Trees were stamped and then added the ruffled edge and seam binding ribbon to tie it all together.  Believe it or not more pennant cards are coming tomorrow.

Pennant Pinwheel

This card was created because one of my favorite customers (who shall remain nameless) wanted to learn how to create a pinwheel from paper. She was happy as can be to learn how easy peasy it is to create a pinwheel from two sided paper.  I hope she takes my challenge and makes pinwheels in all sizes. How simple is this card?  Go ahead and start making pinwheels you’ll be glad you did.  Send me your pinwheel creations and I’ll post them.  More pennants tomorrow.

Come sail away

Samples from my pennant workshop continue with a simple design that is heavy on the layers. Today’s card is nautical themed and was designed for a new baby boy.  But swapping out the sentiment it can easily be adapted for a masculine birthday, a summer card, or even use it on a scrapbook page as an embellishment.  I love the monochromatic star background and the use of the tasteful trim die to create the wave.

I hope you are not getting pennanted out because I still have more to come.

Watermelon Pennants

Who knew that the pennant punch could be so versatile? For todays card, I used the pennant punch to create watermelon slices.  I dusted off the Stampinup blender pens and my classic ink pads to create the realistic watercolor watermelons.  The fun thing on this card is that I could not find an expression so I created one.  I used a partial expression from one of the stamps in the Sweet Treats stamp set to make the perfect sentiment.  This card is fun and marks the end of summer and the sweet taste of watermelon.

It takes Balls

I know absolutely nothing about golf but just had to share a golf card that I made as a “bonus” card at my Pennant workshop.  The outside says… It takes a lot of balls. The inside says to golf the  way you do.  Stay tuned for the rest of the cards from my Penant Parade workhop.

Even Simpler Christmas card

Yesterday’s post focused on Christmas cards using old and new products and today, the theme is being carried on.  Since I make over 150 Christmas cards each year and cannot make the same one over and over so , I like to start early and have some cards that are simple to reproduce and this card fits that bill.  This card uses the same retired Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and the new blossom boquet triple layer punch.

 Cardbase: Very Vanilla cardstock #101650 $8.50 textured with the petals a plenty embossing folder #116824 $7.95

Layer1: Thin strip of Cherry cobbler cardstock #119685 $6.95

Layer2: Punch 4 squares from designer series paper using the 1 1/4″ punch  #119685 $15.95 to form the packages and punch 4 bows from coordinatiating cardstock (Cherry cobbler cardstock #119685 $6.95 and Old olive #100702 $6.95)  to form the package.  Stamp sentimemt using the pennant parade stamp set #122742 $16.95 and tie with a piece of cherry cobler bakers twine #123125 $2.95

Sweet and simple and by chaning the paper selection you can change the whole look and feel of the card.  Or step the card up and add some rhinestone bling to each center of the bows to give an even fancier look.
