It’s the weekend again! Whoo-hoo!
Well – it’s all Whoo-hoo as long as I don’t contemplate that this time next week…I’ll be on a plane to California. Bleh.
But – it’s the next thing that has to be done so I’m a-gonna do it! And then I’m a-gonna go on a cruise! WHOO-HOO!! 🙂
For now, though – I’m a-bringing y’all a quick, easy and fun little birthday card that I made with the new Pick A Pennant stamp set and some pretty Tranquil Textures DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown…
I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock and some 3/4″ wide strips of Tranquil Textures DSP in coordinating colors. Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the strips of DSP to the panel, letting the ends of the strips spill off the edges.
Once all the strips were adhered, I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut off the excess DSP.
The Pick A Pennant stamp set – which is photopolymer – makes lining up and stamping sentiments so easy! I masked off my DSP with a few sticky notes and stamped the pennant image twice in Crushed Curry.
Then I used the letter images in the set to stamp each flag in Night of Navy.
The little bird – which is also in Pick A Pennant – is stamped in Fresh Fig and then colored lightly with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the panel to a Crushed Curry mat with Liquid Glue and the card front was done.
On the inside, I repeated the Crushed Curry pennant on a Whisper White panel. Then I added the sentiment with more letter images in Night of Navy. A second bird in Fresh Fig and Crushed Curry finished it off.
I adhered the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Fresh Fig card base with Liquid Glue, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added some more pennants and a bird from Pick A Pennant…
…and I gave the envelope flap a little more Tranquil Textures DSP.
Et Voila! I sort of love this little stamp set! You can – literally! – Pick A Pennant and decorate it all sorts of fun ways! And you get an alphabet stamp set as a little bonus! Hope you like!

I know you guys are all Finn Fans. Fans of Finn, even.
Finn is happy to have fans.
But – Finn is NOT a Fan of Flying Foe. And by Flying Foe – I mean…bugs.
It causes him to twist and leap and snap at….nothing.
Case in point.
You’re just going to have to take me at my word that there’s really a bug bugging him.
He’s not crazy.
