Banners Away!

So my sister-in-law is hosting an engagement party tonight and earlier this week she asked me if I could make her a banner and another sign for her wall...I said sure no problem! So what did I make?
Isn't this banner awesome! I went to my friend Nikki's and she was gracious enough to let me use her Cricut...Love it...hmmm I might need an expressions after all! Who knew! LOL

I used orchid Opulance cardstock and cut the letters in 5.5 inches tall...I think? Could of been 5 inches. Anyways, Once all the letter were cut I came home and used my cuttlebug folders through my big shot...fisrt I inked the top portion of the folder also with Orchid Opluance and then ran it through. After that is was Glitter time! While all the glitter was drying I cut out 15 top note dies on shimmery white cardstock and then sponged the edges with Orchid Opulance craft ink...my fav way to sponge!

After sponging I set my crop-a-dial to desired hight and punched holes for the silver eyelets on all the top notes and then set the eyelets.

Put it all together and you have an awesome banner right? Well I thought it still looked a little plain...so I found some pretty flowers added a button to the centers and of course more GLITTER! Can a girl ever have too much sparkle?

Now for the little stamped girl...you're probably thinking...hey that's not weddingish or engagementish...well I though gosh this would be a shame to trash it after one use...so pretty and so muh work...that I thought Hey I could probably use it for other occasions...so I started thinking and decided it would be good for a birthday or a bridal shower ad even a baby shower...so I will just switch out images and call it a day! This particular image is from an MFT set called "you take the cake" and I water colored again with the craft ink and aqua painter...added more glitter and cut her out!

Now, since I had all my supplie already out I went ahead and made a birthday card...never know when I might need to use it! LOL

Ink: Orchid opulance, yo yo yellow
Paper: orchid opulance, shimmery white, basic black (for card only)
Accessories: Crop-a-dial, silver eyelets, orchid opulance ribbon, mono multi, dazzling diamonds glitter (for card only blck eyelets)
The card is also for a couple challenges...Angelosities blog challenge using her sketch 25 ando also the MFT November guest designer contest...watercoloring!

Thanks stopping by!

May God bless you today and always,

Happy Stampin'
