A Love Banner 61

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, February 2, 2011 @ 12:23 AM | , ,

Hi there! Half way through the week already~can you believe it??? Now that CHA is over and all the Spellbinders die templates have been revealed, I would like to share a few of my faves :) I made this banner with a lot of love as a decoration to hang on the mantle in the family room. I apologize in advance that the pic of the entire banner is not the greatest as it is very difficult to photograph in it's entirety so I took a few close ups as well.
I made this banner using S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants and S5-028 Nested Pennants die templates along with Making Memories DP showcasing various doilies and the beautiful flourish image from Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes. I was inspired to create this for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, FTTC103 where my dear blogging friend Silke is challenging us to create a Valentine card/creation.

First up, is a doily from S5-042 Fleur de Lis Doily Accents. Each doily displays a layered scalloped heart embellishment. I stamped the heart flourish image from Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes with VersaMark ink, embossed using white embossing powder, then using a S4-136 Classic Heart die template to cut the image and layered on top of a scalloped heart cut using a S4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart die template. All the lil' rose buds were a fabulous gift from my sweet friend Suzanne :)
Next, a doily from S5-041 Floral Doily Motifs:
Last but not least, a doily from S5-043 Fleur de Lis Doily Motifs:
Strung in between each pennant is a layered scalloped heart with a darling lil' butterfly fluttering about. I used the butterfly die template from S4-123 Flying Beauties to cut/emboss and stencil all the butterflies :)
What die templates are your MUST have list? Are you like me and WANT and NEED them all? :) LOL
Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes
