the beautiful day

I have been trying my hands at making cards recently, not my forte..but few friends has asked me to make some for them and here I am with one such card which is very close to my heart..
Used the very famous Altenew The Beautiful Day stamp set on Brustro watercolor paper.Later die cut the piece with MFT square stitch dies.
I have heat embossed the image in clear and used my MISTI stamping tool with along with the masking technique (masked the big center flower to stamp the flower bunches)
Used Zig clean clear brush markers for the watercolor effect. ( Marika Rahtu  is my inspiration..)
And the sentiment comes from one of the most versatile Gratitude stamp set from Penny Black.

hope you like the card :)

Banner Punch Board

Hi crafty people,

If you are joining the Itsy Bitsy Sizzix BLOG HOP, you must have joined me from the Itsy Bitsy blog. If not click here for IB's new design team reveal, new challenge and an amazing blog hop.

Its a privilege being on ITSY BITSY blog...when i started my craft journey this was one craft store I would look forward to for pattern paper,chipboards,flower embellies, etc etc..And since than the store has grown many folds..I am sure if you have visited it lately you would have fallen in love with this craft paradise and if not..plan a in-store or online store tour soon ..

This would be my first blogpost as the Itsy Bitsy DT member. And here is what I got as my DT kit for this month...the WRMK banner punch board..We Are Memory Keepers makes amazing punch boards (check out the complete range here)
And don't miss to have a look at that amazing set of pattern papers..

PS: Heavy pictorial post follows!!..

I would be using some of these papers and the banner punch board to create a Shaker Banner.
The banner punch board creates banners measuring between 1" and 8.5 ". The punch board has a cutting blade template with magnetic arm to hold the paper in place while cutting,a hole punch and one swivel blade.
Lets start with types of shapes the punch board can cut..the package says around sre some most used shapes in banners..These are easy to cut, you just have to follow the horizontal and vertical guidelines on the punch board. 

Steps for Shaker Banner (FLAG shaped)
I took my 12"x 12" pattern paper and trimmed it to 6"x 5" (4 pcs).
Since it shaker I need another set of papers trimmed to 5"x 4".
                These are double sided papers,you can use any coordinating papers of your choice.

Next I used my banner punch board to trim the paper to FLAG shape.
Notice the blue swivel houses itself in the magnetic arm..u don't have to fear of its getting lost or anybody getting hurt.
The punch board comes with hole punch to punch the banner.

This is how the flag shaped banners would look...

For making a shaker we would require to remove the center piece from the smaller flag banner. I removed a piece Half inch smaller from all the sides. Add transparent OHP sheet to the center. You can use double sided tissue tape to adhere the ohp sheet. Also for giving it a little dimension add 2-way foam tape to the back of smaller flag banner.

I have used sequins and micro glass beads in coordinating colors for making the shaker banner.

Notice the twin owl chipboard..I have heat embossed them by mixing two shades of embossing powders..If you don't have embossing powders than you can also paint/ink these chipboard designs..

Used gross grain ribbon and twine with mini wooden pegs to hang the shaker banner.

Hope you enjoyed the post..Do try and share with us your creations.
