Pennant Parade Banner and Christmas Tree

At stamp class this week we made 4 cards using the Pennant Parade stamp set and the coordinating punch. I'd like to show you two of them today.

This was at the request of one of my friends (and also customer) who said she thought the pennant set was cute but she just didn't think she would use it much. When I told her there was a lot more you could do with it besides make pennants she asked if I would have a class showing some different ideas.

This first card I showed part of in a previous post.  It's a really cute way to use this stamp set as a pennant.  Everyone loved the colors!  Pool Party (a new In Color) and Early Espresso go together so well.  This card was cased, with some changes, from a convention swap.  I would love to give credit but I'm not sure who designed it.  There either wasn't a card in the envelope or I missed placed it. :(

Stamp Sets: Pennant Parade, Party this Way

Accessories: Petite Pennants Builder, 1/2 Circle Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Early Espresso/White Baker's Twine, Early Espresso 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Glue Dots

The second card was also a big hit.  You can use the pennant as a Christmas tree!  In this card I stamped a forrest of trees and then popped one up so it would stand out as the chosen tree.  It's hard to see in this picture but we used the new Dazzling Details to give sparkle to the tree.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasabi a fun combination for Christmas.  Some of the ladies purchased their Christmas paper to get a jump on the holidays. Are you thinking about your Holiday cards yet?
