Stamp Review Crew: Perfect Pennants Edition

My first post for 2015 and the first Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop for 2015!  I hope you all had a  wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Years. Maybe even got away for a well earned break or holiday. I've just come back from a week camping with my husband and kids at the beach. Lots of fun, lots of swimming, lots of walking and lots of relaxing! Feeling very refreshed!  

This hop we are focusing on the stamp set Perfect Pennants.

If you are following along on the hop I'm 11th on the hop and  you may have joined me from the fantastic Mike Funke or you may have started here with me. Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of myself and 16 others of the other Stamp Review Crew. If you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of the post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.

Perfect Pennants is a very versatile set and it co-ordinates with the Banners Framelit Dies.

I've created 3 cards using this stamp set.
The first card uses the new Sale-a-bration DSP, Best Year Ever, that you can earn for FREE from 6th January! The colours are stunning and so bright and cheery! 


I used a sketch for this card that I had saved on Pinterest. I can say that it started out very differently to what I originally had planned! But I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

This card uses some of the Flowerpot DSP from the Annual Catalogue. 
The sentiments from the Perfect Pennants set fit in very well in the Banner Framelits.


I used the linen thread to make a 'flower'. I just wrapped the thread around my finger and then stick each 'circle' behind the button with sticky strip.

The last card is a quick, clean and simple card that is easy to re-create for your loved one for Valentine's Day.
