Pennant Parade

Well, first of all let me say that I have neglected my blog. Oh my goodness it has been a long time since I posted. I guess I really do not have any good excuse. Summer has been busy and I LOVE summer so I spend as much time outside that I can. Still no excuse. Let's see if I can actually start posting more often now. It is a goal of mine to do that!

Today's sample uses a stamp set called Pennant Parade This was a set that was in a bundle that I received for FREE as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator! Love that perk! I wasn't sure that I liked it at first but when I started playing with it, I started to fall in love. As you see from the samples, I used it to decorate cupcakes for my daughters birthday. How fun!

 Aren't they cute?! The color scheme all started with the cupcake liners that I had in my cupboard. I matched them with my Stampin' Up! colors to create the little pennants. Yes, we have a color that coordinates with anything! Ha! Then of course I had to color the frosting to coordinate. The most amazing thing was that I had the plates and napkins in my stash of paper products in my pantry and they matched perfectly!

So after the cupcakes were done I wasn't going to throw away all those little pennants that I worked so hard on so I removed them from the toothpicks to save for another project. I decided to make a card with some of them.

I thought it turned out so nice! I forgot to mention that Stampin' Up! makes it so easy by having a punch that coordinates with the stamp set. After stamping the pennant, you punch it out! Way easier than cutting. I love that about Stampin' Up! product : )
