Video: How to Stamp a Banner with Twine Time and Lots of Letters 2



Hello! Today I'll show you how to stamp up a simple pennant banner using the string elements from Twine Time and the bold triangle and letters from my Lots of Letters 2 set!  Both stamp sets (currently in stock, woo hoo!) are so versatile and *together* they open up a lot of fun possibilities! So festive for a birthday or arrival of a little boy, or change up the colors and greeting for a happy “any time” card for anyone. Every day is worth celebrating. Please enjoy! Watch till the end for an alternative layout. I had so much fun making these cards for my friend and her mom (who is also my friend, new mom and new grandmom, don't forget to celebrate with the grandma!) :) You can whip this design up in 10 minutes.




Supplies:
Gina K. Designs Twine Time, Lots of Letters 2 stamp sets
Gina K. Pure Luxury Applemint (5 ½” x 8 1/2”, scored at 4 ¼”), Kraft (3 7/8” x 5 1/8”), White )4’ x 5 ¼”), and Blue Denim (3” x 3”) cardstock
Gina K. Applemint, Blue Denim, Sweet Mango, Kraft dye ink pads and Gina K. White pigment ink pad
Scissors, pop dots, adhesive pearls, Dotted Cuttlebug folder and die cutting machine



Here is the list I mentioned of short words to make:

HELLO
HI
LOVE
BABY
ITS A
OH BOY
HEY GIRL
GET WELL
JUST A NOTE
HOPE
ALL THE BEST
HAPPY
BDAY
MOM

BIG DAY

And here is Twine Time!

Hi Melanie,
I love all your ideas for these sets. And since I have both these sets I am excited to try something new with them.
Thank you Melanie for all you do. I look forward to each new video.

I love how you throw in extra tidbits of info, like replacing "lost" letters, using separate, smaller pieces for a bottom layer and using the same elements in more than one layout. THANK YOU for sharing.

I like the horizontal one best. You make stamping so easy. Someday maybe I'll be better at stamping. I really enjoy your stamp sets (I have them all).
God Bless and Keep You

Such great cards,Melanie! Love the way you can create the illusion of a large piece of card, if you cut it down the middle!!! I think I prefer card A, though both are lovely:)
