It's Jess here with my second Rinea Project of the month. I decided with Christmas around the corner, it was time for a little home decor project. So, I created a beautiful vertical JOY Banner! For this project, I used the Frosted Foiled Paper Variety Pack! It's also an exciting month because we partnered with the amazing Imagine Crafts!! How fun! (On a totally random topic - does anyone else really love how the StazOn inks smell? I sure do! hehe!)
Let's get crafting!
First, I used the Imagine Gothic Purple Stazon Ink and Oma's Postcard Stamp Set to stamp onto the Glossy Turquoise Light Blue/Gold Foiled Paper using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Then, I used a banner die from Tonic Studios to cut out the banner shapes. For the middle banner piece, I used the Starstruck Sapphire Blue. I cut my banner shapes first, then adhered to Glitter Paper and trimmed down.
To make the J-O-Y letters, I actually just used my Microsoft Word program and used the Castello font at 250pt and printed them off! Then, I die cut with a circle die from Sizzix. I cut the Glossy Turquoise Light Blue/Gold Foiled Paper and Starstruck Sapphire Blue again, but this time opposite of the banner pieces to contrast.
Using the fabulous Starburst Sentiment Stamp, I inked it up with Emerald City StazOn Ink and stamped randomly around the letters. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ivory Seashell to accent each starburst. Foam squares were used to give a bit of dimension to the banner.
I used a skinny strip of Starstruck Silver Foiled Paper to connect the banner pieces and create the hanger.
You could totally swap out the colors with the Jolly Variety Foiled Paper Pack (or any of the other fabulous Variety Packs for that matter) and created any occasion banner with this method! NOEL, a name for a birthday party, it really could be anything.
I hope you go out and make some banners of your own!
