TSG Birthday Challenge #4: Banners

Hey Crafty Friends – time for more TSG Birthday fun! :)

TSG Birthday Logo

September marks There She Goes’ FOURTH year in business, and to help us celebrate, we are having a month full of FUN! Starting today, and lasting through Friday, September 7th, we will be hosting one challenge per day. Each day will have a different birthday related theme, and will have a prize for the random winner chosen on Saturday, September 15th one $15 gift card per day! Each day will have it’s own Inlinkz for you to link your creation to, and then on Friday, we will post an Inlinkz for ANYONE who has created a card for each challenge. The random winner chosen from all that have finished EACH challenge, and added their name to the Inlinkz, will be entered to win our grand prize drawing-a $75 gift card to the There She Goes store!

Ready to get started? Today’s challenge is brought to us by our blast from the past NEW trendsetter, Danielle (that is me)! I have challenged you to make a card or project using a banner of any kind you wish, with a birthday theme of COURSE!! It can be a handmade banner, a patterned paper with a banner on it, an image of a banner…the skies the limit!

Remember to head over to the TSG blog and add your creation to the Inlinkz for TSGBC04!

Here are the rules: For the daily challenge prizes of $15, you can use stamps from any company you chose, but we would LOVE to see you using your There She Goes stamps!! However, to be eligible to win the Grand Prize of $75, all you entries much use There She Goes stamps only!

You will have until 8pmEST Friday, September 14th to finish this challenge, and the winner will be announced on Saturday, September 15th at 12amEST. That gives you over a week to get finished! If you happen to finish them all, and we hope that you do, you can add your name to the Inlinkz being posted on Saturday, September 8th to be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE!!!!

Want a calendar to help you keep things straight? Well, here you go: Birthday Challenge Calendar.


For my card I used the spunky Poultry in Motion stamp set to create a “bleat-ed” birthday card.  First off, I created the scenery – a green hill cut from designer paper and a cloudy sky created by sponging Tumbled Glass ink on Icy Mint cardstock using a Clouds Border die cut as a stencil.


I used some pennant dies, letter stickers and some narrow dark brown striped ribbon to make the banner. I stitched the base pennants (cut from Kraft) to the ribbon and then added the top layer using foam dimensionals. Once complete the banner was adhered to the card using more dimensionals.


I had oodles of fun making the little sheep.  I stamped each sheep twice and colored.  From the second image I cut just the head and adhered it to the first using foam dimensionals.  I thought they could use a bit more texture so I added Cotton-ball Fluff to their wooly heads.  Yes – so much fun!

Finally, here is a side shot so you can see all of the dimension on the banner and sheep.


That is it for me. Be sure to head over to the TSG Blog for more eye candy! And once you have made your card for today’s challenge head over there again to add it to the InLinkz! I can’t wait to see all of the banners. :D
