Canada Day Banner

Hello crafty friends!

I'm here with one last fun June post for SparkleNSprinkle!  It's time to celebrate Canada Day in style with some home decor - a fun Banner! I used the adorable Sophie Pup Stamp set one last time.

Here is my full SNS Supply List:

SNS Supply List

If you remember my previous post HERE where I used Sophie earlier in the month, you will see I used a similar technique to color my Sophie!  I love my Nuvo Marker pens!!!  Once she was colored, I fussy cut out my images.

Then, I grabbed my Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen and added some Diamond Dust Glitter.  I just wanted a little extra SPARKLE! Who doesn't love sparkle?


Next, I grabbed my Tonic Beautiful Bunting Grand Gala Dies an cut my banner pieces!  So easy!  I used the Fireworks Embossing Folder again too - but you can use the the STENCIL again to create the same technique!  Simply use a stylus to dry emboss from underneath the paper.


I wanted to really emphasize the fireworks, so I reached for my Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Pure Platinum and just scraped it across the embossed areas using a palette knife. There was no particular plan with this - just a little extra something something! :)


I started to build my banner decorations!  I stamped an image from the Journal Mixed Media stamp set onto some die cut Sticker Paper using Versmark Ink and heat embossed with Red Apple Embossing Powder!  I thought that would add a fun background and some extra interest to the banner. 

Next, I simple adhered my Sophie and Canada Flags to the sticker papers using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.  Then I adhered them to the banner!  My sentiments actually were made using the Sophie DIGI Set!  I wanted them enlarged so they would really stand out!  I used some thicker twine as my banner anchor.  Once it was done, I decided that I needed a little extra something on it - so I die cut some Tonic Craft Perfect Papers in Hailstorm and added the little bits to the banner!



There you have it  Some super cute Home Decor ideas for your next party!  You could always swap out Sophie for our Baxter Pup Stamp Set to make some cute Fourth of July Banners!

I hope you had fun and will go and make some banners of your own!!

See ya soon!
