"Boo" Banner

It may say Boo but no boos for this banner! Its so colorful, sparkly, and accented with that gorgeous Black Striped ribbon that it'll be a winner for all that see! This was inspired by my dear friend, Ruth Bingle. But of course, changed up a bit for my Stamp Club members.

One of the fun things about this project was using a technique which is a take off the heat emboss and resist technique. The Bride Designer Paper has a shiny scroll print which will resist the ink that is applied to it much like an image that is embossed. Using the brayer, we rolled Basic Black ink onto the paper. Then with a tissue, wiped the excess ink off the scroll print and voila! It changes the whole look.

The center accents on each block is card stock cut to 1-1/2" x 12". Scored every 1/2" and folded like a fan. The ends are adhered to each other and layered onto the scalloped square block. (The trick is to flatten out the circle from the center out. Once you get the hang of doing one, it becomes much easier. Don't be afraid to squish it down flat.)

The scallop square block and letters were cut out using my favorite die-cutting machine the Big Shot. Spray a little adhesive over the letter or use the glue pen and sprinkle dazzling diamonds.

Last but not least, adhere the gorgeous ribbon and hang for decoration!
