For my first card, I’m using the fabulous Pennant Swag Alphabet set and matching Pennant Swag dies.

Fucshia Bday Banner 04022Since these are clear stamps, I don’t think it matters if you stamp first, then die cut or do it in reverse. But I die cut the swag first, left the die in place, and stamped the individual pennants in place. I used these colors because I happened to have these crocus and foxglove images already colored. They weren’t used as previously intended, but I think they fit in perfectly here. The narrow fuchsia colored frames were part of a background I made with Copics and I used it as well. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Foxglove copics 03798I’m entering this in the Simon Says Monday Challenge…White!

On my second card, I’m using the Patriotic Pennants, Pennant Alphabet, Pennant Row dies & Pennant dies.

Brave Eagle 04009I combined these fabulous pennants with my favorite eagle image, from Some Gave All and the greeting from Home of the Free. I stamped the images in either the sapphire or barn door ink, die cut and arranged them as seen.
