Here is the information on these two kits from Stampin’ Up!. I’ve made a Christmas banner of my own and have found some easier ways to use the kits and stencils. My tips are in red.
This video features our new Build a Banner Simply Created Kit and the Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit. These are such fun and cute products. The Build a Banner Simply Created Kit includes eighteen 5″ x 7″ blank canvas paper pennants, six each of three different designs, 9′ of jute twine, alphabet and image stencils, and a Stampin’ Spritzer.
The Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit includes four pre-scored, precut rosettes, three glittered die-cut accents, two 18″ pieces of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon, two 18″ pieces of exclusive Bermuda Bay/Pool Party 1-1/4″ Two-Toned Ribbon, 36″ of Whisper White 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, five Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, and ten Large Rhinestones.
This kit is fully customizable! You can create any holiday greeting you want. Use the pattern stencils and your Stampin’ Spritzer to create the patterns on your pennants. Be sure to plan your design out before you begin spritzing. Fill our Stampin’ Spritzer with your desired color of reinker and rubbing alcohol or water (we recommend rubbing alcohol because it will dry faster). You can adjust the color saturation in your spritzer to create different looks. If you want a darker color, use more reinker and less alcohol. If you want a lighter
color, use less reinker and more alcohol.
To spritz your pennants, lay your pattern down on your pennant. Spray with your Spritzer until you have the desired saturation. The spritzing will pool on the stencil a little, so be sure to carefully lift your stencils off to prevent any accidents with the reinker. I found it much easier to use the sponge daubers than the spritzers. I dipped the sponge dauber in an ink pad and rubbed it over the stencil until I got the color i wanted. Also, I used stencil tape to hold my stencils down. You can clean your stencils with Stampin’ Mist.
To add letters to your pennants, lay down your shield stencil and your desired alphabet stencil and spritz a coordinating color. Once again, I used my sponge daubers. Check out the following video.
Tomorrow I will show you the Christmas banner I made with the kit and a few additions. Keep Thinkin’ Inkin’!
