More New (Splendid) Stamps & Papers!

As soon as I saw this stamp set, Splendid Day, I knew I had to buy it.  (I hate that when that happens!)  (smile)

I like the little banner that comes with it.  When I was telling my dad about these stamps, he reminded me of the signs they used to pull that said "Will you marry me?"  He's such a romantic.  That would be fun for a card -- if guys ever made cards. ha!

What I really liked about this card is the wavy's sticking up off the card.  I bent the paper up and down so it would be more "bannerish."  Is that a word?  It made the card not so flat, and shows movement.  Can't you just see it flapping in the wind?  I was inspired by a card I got from Tarina Holloway.  I mounted it with foam mounting tape on the "down" parts of the sign.

I bet you could have lots of fun with this stamp set, too!  The tree and sunshine have lots of potential...might have to play around with them later...

I love how you used this stamp set! The banner going down below the plane (and being 3-D) is a great idea. I thought I would just have to make a long card to fit everything but now you've given me a new way to think of it. Thanks!
