Banners - July's Technic

Banners are all the rage now.  You see them everywhere.  This month we are featuring the banner technique on page 35 of the ideabook, but with a twist.  Our goal was to find something other than triangles to create banners with.  Our blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  You are at the beginning of our hop.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses below if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Neely's Blog, you are on the right track!  This technique is highlighted with the Fanfare paper packet in the Idea Book but you will find variations for its’ use through this hop.
I found two stamp sets that I wanted to play with for this technique.  I just couldn't decided which I liked the best, so I decided to share them both. 
On the left I used Summer Days B1375 to create the images.  This stamp set even includes a block of picnic tablecloth pattern that I used for the border on the bottom.  Paired with our Fanfare paper packet it made a great summer time invitation.  Oh, and the vine is made from green floral wire.

Let's Hang Out on the right is a repeat of the paper piecing technique.  The clothes are stamped on random scraps using Family Ties - Children C1345, hung on Colonial White waxy flax Z1081 and it's all held up with those stinkin' cute flower buttons from the Buttons Basic Assortment Z1358.  Let's Hang Out is stamped with Pacifica Ink on Colonial White cardstock using D1221-Delightful Alphabet.  The cardbase is made from more scraps that I found.

Now, please continue onto Teri's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

Here is the list of ladies sharing their creations this month
