Pennants

A few weeks ago we hosted a party at our place and for this I bought some very bright colored pennants for the porch. I actually didn't like these afterall -  I had more something like these soft colored pennants in mind... So pretty! Huh??













I remembered I had some linen and I then started out on a stamping project using the Spellbinders pennants die, the linen, a beautiful butterfly stamp from Hero Arts, broken china distress ink & some twine....


I was a bit too optimistic with my time schedules and all - so my small banner ended up as decor inside on a mirror instead ;))   

I now have on my future to-to list to create a banner with double pennants,  stitched on the sewing machine, for future use ... One of those projects for the winter time, I guess....


And we used the very bright colored one instead.... It was festive afterall ;))

(picture taken with the evening sunlight at the porch - my husband taking a break from the preparations)...

And I will leave you with a card also using pennants - these ones I created with washi tape and some great Hero Arts /Studio Calico Stamps.

Supplies
Stamps: Hero Arts You are the Best ST510, Hero Arts Hooray ST509, Hero Arts Woodgrain Pattern S5100.
Other: Hero Arts notecard, washi tape, fiskars cloud punch, misc inks...




Sorry for the long post today. Thank you so much for stopping by!
