Stampin' Up! Baby Name Banner

I've just been dying to show pictures of the baby name banners I've been working on using various Stampin' Up!' supplies.  Now, these are supposed to be a surprise for two different friends of mine who are both having girls (and both baby showers are on the same day!).  I sure hope they don't see this!

(Maybe I'll just show you parts of each of the banner so if they do happen to see it, the other part will be a surprise!  Is that weird?)  I sure hope they like these!

Here's the first baby name banner:

 I used the Sunshine and Sprinkles (doesn't that just sound like a baby theme to you?) Designer Series Paper along with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight card stock.  The ribbon is the 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.

Here's the second baby banner:
(Keep in mind this is the second half of the banner.  I'll post the complete pictures after the shower.)

I embossed gray card stock using the Lacy Brocade embossing folder, adhered the card stock pieces to drink coasters and then cut around the edges.  I then used the White Craft Pad to go over the top of each to give it a "shadowy" effect.  The Pink ribbon and the Silver Glimmer Paper just set everything off nicely.

I created the rosette using the same Pink ribbon with the Jumbo Sticky Rounds.  Basically, I tied a knot in one end of the ribbon, stuck it to the center of the sticky round, then began twisting and sticking the ribbon down in circles until I completely covered the sticky round.  I was surprised at how quickly it went.

I sure hope they enjoy their baby name banners!  I have enjoyed making them!

If you have any questions or would like more information on how to create your own banners, please let me know by leaving me a comment or sending me an email!

Happy Stamping!
