Hiding in My Craft Room - Banners

It's Saturday and its time to come out of hiding for Hiding in my Craftroom!  We are playing with Banners this week.  I was goofing around with a stamp set from Inspired by Stamping called Inspiring Sentiments and the lightbulb went off...why not create a little subway art square with my stamps?  And so ten minutes later this was born! My Subway style square is filled with a lot of the different wonderful sentiments Joanna placed in the set, plus one more from my own stash... I placed them all on my trusty Fiskars stamping acrylic stamping thing-a-majig and stamped my sentiment compilation.  If you would like to see or purchase this set of Sentiments, which is very fabulous and a great value for your money, the link follows. (I am not affiliated with Inspired by Stamping in any way, although I wish I was on her Design Team, but I digress!)

The top sheet happened to be the negative from a Spellbinders cut so it served as the perfect frame.  I stamped the sentiments using my Versafine  brown ink onto some My Minds Eye design paper and then cut it out with my die and I happened to remember I had those "Want to Scrap" bling stickers that fit my die perfectly.  I inked all my edges with Vintage Photo distress, glued down some sweet rose colored ruffled netting trim and some twine leftover from a clothing tag and then punched out a few bunting/banner shapes with my Fiskars Jenni Bowlin  hand punch.  Lastly  I stuck down a Jollee's sticker Embellishment. And decorated a bit inside the card.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

IBSIC-#53 Try a new technique, something you've never done before - I tried to create a Subway word "box" using a bunch of different sentiment words on my stamping block, stamping themall together at once - Challenge #140 - friendship - tic tac toe (lace, gems, flowers
