Pennant Parade Set Sampler!

Hi!! Welcome to my first "Whatever Thursday" post! Today's "whatever" is a set sampler!! One stamp set, several different looks!! Today's set is Pennant Parade--a super fun set!

This first card shows you a card you might expect from this set:

Yes, it's a birthday card, using the pennant stamp as......pennants!! This is very easy to do with the coordinating Petite Pennants Builder Punch!

Look, you can use this same stamp as a Christmas tree:

Just turn it upside down!! And, I colored in the garland with a Riding Hood Red Stampin' Write Marker.

In keeping with the "upside down" theme, here are some fun ice cream cones:

The ice cream scoops are 1 3/4" circles! I punched a template from a window sheet, then sponged in with Pretty in Pink ink! Wouldn't this make a sweet card for a little girl?!

Now, this card is just wild!!! LOL!!! I used the same stamp from the previous card, and created a back ground!!I started with Not Quite Navy ink, and stamped a row of the pennants. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure they were somewhat straight! I continued all the way down with the Not Quite Navy pennants, then came back and "filled in" with the Cajun Craze Pennants! Would make a fun card for a special guy's birthday!!

I hope you enjoy the Set Sampler!! We'll see you tomorrow for another great sketch challenge!!
