I have been so inspired by so many of the beautiful banners out there!  On SCS, on Pinterest, everywhere!  I decided to jump in and try one for myself!  I cut out three triangles from burlap.  I didn't measure, just sort of winged it.  I also cut out three triangles from card stock, again no measuring.  I glued each burlap piece down to the card stock using Mod Podge.  Once that dried, (it didn't take very long) I painted each piece with white acrylic paint.  While those pieces were drying, I stamped the new It Is Well With My Soul stamp onto some card stock pieces and tore them out, distressed them and sponged on them.  Then I stamped the light house from the Light of the World set.  For some reason it seemed important to use this set.  It was the very first stamp set that Our Daily Bread designs released, and it just felt right.  I colored the image lightly with copics and then lightly painted over the whole thing with the white paint again.  I glued these to the banner pieces with Beacon 3-in-1 glue.  Then I attached the lace, seam binding, and buttons.  I used hemp to attach the banners to for displaying.


I seem to be doing this a lot lately but I have another project to share!  
I will make it quick so you won't get 'blogged' down!  LOL!!  Thank you for staying...

I used both of the other new sets for this card, The Mighty Sea and The Sea.  The image was stamped onto chipboard with Stazon ink.  Then I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks to sponge all around until I got the look I was going for.  Kind of a coppery sheen.  Then I just stamped the sentiment at the bottom to finish the card! 


Now from here please make your way over to Connie's fabulous blog!  
Her talent just blows me away so I am sure you will be inspired!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today!  We enjoy your visits so much!!!
