This is the Welcome Banner that was created for this month's banner class.
You will notice in the close-up shots that there are a few items that are not Stampin' Up! I wanted a vintage look and I just kept adding things. I have some Stampin' Up! buttons on there, but added some from my collection of extra buttons. I also added some beads around the buttons to fill it in a little. The beads are also not Stampin' Up! And I must confess that I do not have any Stampin' Up! Alphabet stamps or dies...well, I do, but they are tucked away on another shelf because Stampin' Up! retired my sets and I haven't replaced them with the new sets. I pulled out some rub-ons that I had from years ago and used them. But if you have Stampin' Up! letters or dies you can use them. If you use the letter stamps just stamp the letters with white craft ink, wait for them to dry (or use a heat tool to hurry the process) and then color over the letters with your desired color of Blendabilities. Works beautifully!
