TE Sneak Peeks: It's A Banner Day 1

Hi Crafty Friends!

Welcome to Day Three of Sneak Peeks. Only one more day and all of the fabulous sets we have been showcasing will be available for purchase. Today we are focusing on the It's a Banner Day 1 stamp set and its matching Banner Day 1 die.

It's a Banner Day 1 set features a variety of banner stamps and sentiments with a coordinating banner die. This fun banner concept was brought to us by the amazing Iwona Palamountain (also known as Chupa). It is a fun set that will coordinate with many of the existing TE sets. For my sample I paired it up with the Pet's Place stamp set (I've been waiting for an excuse to use this set!) and one of the fabulous new acrylic frames that Taylored Expressions will be carrying.

I used Paisley Parade designer paper from KI Memories to cover the front and back of the frame and to decorate the inside. In my world the sky is green and the grass is orange (insert big grin here!).

I painted the inside and outside edges of the frame with brown acrylic paint. After decorating the inside of the frame with the paper I added a couple of critters popped up on dimensionals. I stamped the banner and sentiment on Choice Snow White cardstock in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copic markers. I added some glitter and then coated with Glossy Accents. Once dry I adhered to the outside of the acrylic frame using more dimensionals. It is a very simple layout but it turned out sooooo cute! I need to get my hands on more of these frames!

And here the frame is hanging off a shelf with a bit of Divine Twine. I think this will make a nice gift for someone special. :)
