Hanna's Banner

Hello everyone.

Today I am sharing with you a special project I made for my friend's daughter. She is celebrating her very first birthday this month, and I was lucky enough to help create her birthday party banner. I have been sitting on this project for awhile but I'm happy to share it with you now. Happy Birthday Hanna!

I was assigned the A and of course, I was unable to just make a proper A. I had to camouflage it and make it all artistic like. Sorry Mirella : )

I started with a piece of Neenah 110 lb Solar White Cardstock. I cut it down using one of the Nested Banner Dies. On this panel, I stamped the giraffe and the turtle from the Neat & Tangled Wild Ones stamp set. I made sure to mask these animals in order to ink blend some clouds in the background using My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Stencil and Versamagic Aspen Mist chalk ink. I also blending a little bit of Distress Oxide Bundled Sage to make some ground for them to stand on.

I then used the Altenew Bold Alphabet dies, the A, to cut out the letter that was assigned to me. To pop it up, I inlaid some Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise under is in four layers. I used Lawn Fawn liquid adhesive to adhere the layers leaving the original image stuck to the top.

I used some of the other images from the same Wild Ones Stamp Set and a few from Neat & Tangled's Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee. Some of the images are popped up with Scotch 3M foam tape while others are adhered flat to the panel.

I also inlaid the number one into the little monkey's balloon using Your Next Stamp Bold Numbers die set. This time I used a piece of My Mind's Eye Happy Day Patterned Paper to color the balloon in coordinating colors.

The smaller nested banner was then popped up onto a larger pink gingham patterned paper from the My Favorite Things Farm Fresh Gingham 6x6 paper pack.

I used my Provo craft Silent setter to create a way for the banner to be hung among its neighbors. I chose large white eyelets from We are Memory Keepers. I also added a few small white pom poms with liquid adhesive to their little party hats.

I hope you enjoyed this little project today. I know I sure enjoyed making it. Creating things specifically for others truly is one of the most fun things for me to do and it really helped spark some creativity that I sorely needed.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
