Banner of Bling!

Hi there!

Hope everyone out there is well and is surviving the crazy weather if you are here in Sydney! 40 degrees one day, 21 degrees the next!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend a class held by my up line and very talented friend Di Barnes. In this class we completed a beautiful Christmas banner. We made our banners in the traditional red and green Christmas colours.

I change my colour scheme for my tree/ Christmas decorations each year and I don't usually go for the traditional. So I decided to make another banner in the colours I am using this year, purple, turquoise and silver.

I have used Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Silver. The banner is made using the Petal Cone Die and The Big Shot.

It isn't the easiest thing to photograph as it is so long. Also as I took the photos at night the flash has reflected off all the sparkle and bling! I will try again in the morning and see if I can get any better shots.
I made a few changes, from the banner we made in class. I added a flag in between the words 'Merry' and 'Christmas' and used some of the gorgeous ruffled ribbon to add a bow to each end.

I used the new Silver Glimmer Paper, to add some sparkle to my stocking.

I used lots of bling and sparkle on this one. Can never have too much, especially at Christmas!

Here is a piccy of my tree.

Not a great photo, sorry! But you get the idea!

  1. Your banner is fantastic Sarah. Like you I change my tree dec colours too and never go with traditional red and green. This year I'm doing purple and silver. Think I might need this die now.

  2. Fabulous banner Sarah. Love the color combo. The ribbon bows and rhinestones look great! :o)
