Spellbinders/Flourishes Birthday Pennants Blog Hop!

Flourishes and Spellbinders(TM) have teamed up for a blog hop to introduce the cutest ever stamp set from Flourishes, made just to coordinate with our awesome-est Nested Pennants dies! Are you ready to take a peek?

This fun set just screams celebration and offers six different pennants and flags all designed to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders S5-028 Nested Pennants and Spellbinders S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants. There are also nine sentiments and eight accents in the set that you can use to deck out your pennant shapes in fun and different ways!

Want a little more to coordinate with your cards? How about the new Strips and Stripes background set from Flourishes? This set offers three strips to use together as one background or separate as three different strips that coordinate with the Birthday Pennants set! Since the set was just released last night, I can show it to you now!

Flourishes asked us to join their team for a little show and tell! Make sure to hop on over and see....

I had so much fun with these stamps and die templates that I created two little projects for you today!

I used one of the pennant stamps for the banner, and one of the little flag stamps peeking out from the right side of the photo.  The Strips and Stripes are used to create a mat for the photo.  Sweet!  A little butterfly anchors the journaling tag, which is another nested pennant.  You can click on the photo to enlarge it.

Dies:  Spellbinders St-028 Nested Pennants, S4-306 Wonky Rectangles, LF-001 Creative Book Pages, S5-051 Fancy Flights

My second project is an adorable little banner that I will use to anchor a layout featuring my beautiful Mom!

I cut the bottom layer with chipboard (Diet Dr. Pepper box!) and paper.  I used a different pennant stamp from the Birthday Pennants set - just love this one!  Everything is mounted on foam squares for extra dimension (see below).
