Playing with Pennants and Banners

This week Hand Stamped Sentiments is having a Banner Bash!  Create any paper craft project using banners or pennants.  I’ve been wanting to use my new Halloween stamp set Howl-o-Ween Creeps so here’s a sneak peek of one of the monster images and sentiments.  This set is so much fun!  I can’t wait to create more Halloween items with this set.  I stamped the Frankenstein image on water color paper then used a blender pen and ink pads to color him.  I punched him out with 1-3/4 inch circle punch and sponged the edges with Basic Black ink.  Since the theme for the challenge is pennants I decided to create one large pennant using the Perfect Pennants die for the front of my card.  I then printed with My Digital Studio the DSP layers.  I used Cast a Spell and the Night Owl Digital kit.  I hope you’re inspired to start thinking about your fall and Halloween projects.  The Howl-o-Ween Creeps stamp set will be available on September 1st.
