I LOVE making banners for holiday decorations. Some are small and go on my door and others are rather large. This one is one of my smaller door banners.
I used lots of fun My Creative Time products for this little banner. Each piece of the banner is made using the Tag Dies as the base. I used the darling Stitched Heart Layer Dies for all the little hearts. I used the beautiful new Stitched Scallop Heart Die set for my 'O'. I also used the following My Creative Time stamp sets for the sentiments on the hearts: Chocolate Greetings and Lots of Love.
I also used stamps from the new January 2013 Stamp Kit of the Month by Peachy Keen Stamps.
Here is a close up of each piece of the banner.
The letters were cut at 2.5" from the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge. I also stamped the bears on tan paper and chalked them up for the shading.
I used Glossy Accents on the eyes and noses. For this cute girl bear I used two of the smallest hearts from the Stitched Heart Layering Dies to make her little bow. I just added a small heart shaped rhinestone to finish it off.
I pop dotted a bunch of the hearts up too. I love the dimension on this in real life. This is probably my new favorite holiday banner.
This bear's face is the only PKS stamp that did not come from the January 2013 SKOTM. This one is from the Critter Faces XL stamp set.
My banner was strung together with some pretty red and pink twine from Trendy Twine.
I'm kind of hoping you can see the dimension on the banner a little bit better on these last couple of shots.
I'm entering this banner into the current Peachy Keen 3D Challenge which is supposed to include bears in it.
