Thankful Banner


 
Using the Stampin' Up! Canvas Banner Flags I wanted to see how they handled just stamping directly on them instead of stenciling. So I combined the Gently Falling set and the colors of Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, and Chocolate Chip to stamp a pleasing background of assorted leaf combinations on each flag. Then using the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, 2" rosettes were made. Starting with the  3" circle framelit with Crushed Curry paper,  sponging the edge with Tangerine Tango ink next, and finally stenciling "thankful" in Chocolate Chip
made the word rosettes pop to life. A variety of ribbon and button accents were added. Once the flags were strung on the jute cord, then scraps of torn fabric were added between the flags.  I hope this idea will inspire you in your Thanksgiving decorating.
